Statement By Tronox Limited Regarding Tronox Vs. Anadarko Ruling

Stocks in this article: TROX

Tronox Incorporated filed for bankruptcy in Jan. 2009, and emerged from bankruptcy in Feb. 2011.  As part of the bankruptcy proceedings, the company, along with the United States Government, filed suit against Kerr-McGee for its fraudulent transfer of billions of dollars of pre-existing environmental and tort liabilities.  

As part of its restructuring, Tronox settled the environmental claims of the U.S. and numerous state and local governmental agencies by contributing more than $300 million in cash and assets and the rights to any recovery in the suit against Kerr-McGee to numerous environmental and tort trusts established to resolve the outstanding legacy matters. 

The bankruptcy settlement, including the transfer of the lawsuit to the trusts, allowed Tronox to emerge from bankruptcy as a reorganized company, free of these legacy liabilities, and to become a global leader in the mining and processing of titanium ore and other important minerals and the production of titanium dioxide, a pigment used in everyday life by consumers and industries around the world.  We are steadfastly committed to environmental stewardship and sustainability in all aspects of our business operations.
