"Our management team is focused on three primary strategic financial objectives. Generating more than $350 million of free cash flow in 2016. Growing margins and earnings in our downstream differentiated businesses. Separating our TiO2 (titanium dioxide) business through either a strategic combination or a spin-off," CEO Peter Huntsman said in a statement.
