Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) today reported second quarter 2016 results with revenues of $2,544 million, net income of $94 million and adjusted EBITDA of $325 million. 

Peter R. Huntsman, our President and CEO, commented:

"Our management team is focused on three primary strategic financial objectives.  1) Generating more than $350 million of free cash flow in 2016.  2) Growing margins and earnings in our downstream differentiated businesses.  3) Separating our TiO2 business through either a strategic combination or a spin-off.

"Our second quarter results demonstrate our commitment to these objectives.  I am delighted we generated $282 million of free cash flow during the quarter, in part due to our increased focus on inventory management and are on plan to exceed our $350 million target.  This enabled us to make a $100 million early repayment of debt in July.  Our MDI margins are expanding, our Performance Products margins are healthy and our Advanced Materials business is maintaining strong margins.  We are actively working toward a separation of our TiO2 business with a target of year-end or first quarter 2017.  TiO2 selling prices are rising and other business conditions are improving for our Pigments and Additives business.  In time, it should be well positioned for our planned separation.  We will provide more information regarding the separation on our second quarter earnings conference call.

"I am encouraged by our second quarter results.  We are well on track to successfully accomplish our objectives."

Segment Analysis for 2Q16 Compared to 2Q15

Polyurethanes

The decrease in revenues in our Polyurethanes division for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015 was primarily due to lower average selling prices partially offset by higher sales volumes.  MDI average selling prices decreased in response to lower raw material costs.  MTBE average selling prices decreased primarily as a result of lower pricing for high octane gasoline.  MDI sales volumes increased due to higher demand in the Americas and European regions.  PO/MTBE sales volumes increased due to the impact of the prior year planned maintenance outage.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to the impact of the prior year planned PO/MTBE maintenance outage, estimated at $30 million, as well as higher MDI margins and sales volumes, partially offset by lower MTBE margins.

Performance Products

The decrease in revenues in our Performance Products division for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015 was due to lower average selling prices and lower sales volumes.  Average selling prices decreased primarily in response to lower raw material costs and competitive market conditions.  Sales volumes decreased primarily due to softer demand in China and oilfield applications as well as competitive market conditions.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower margins in our amines, maleic anhydride and upstream intermediates businesses.

Advanced Materials

The decrease in revenues in our Advanced Materials division for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015 was due to lower sales volumes and lower average selling prices.  Sales volumes decreased primarily due to soft demand for low value business in our coatings and construction market, partially offset by growth in our aerospace market across all regions.  Average selling prices decreased in our Asia Pacific region primarily as a result of competitive pressure in our electrical and wind markets, partially offset by higher average selling prices in our European and Americas regions.  Adjusted EBITDA was unchanged as higher contribution margins from lower raw material costs were offset by lower sales volumes.

Textile Effects

The decrease in revenues in our Textile Effects division for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015 was due to lower average selling prices partially offset by higher sales volumes.  Average selling prices decreased primarily due to lower raw material costs.  Sales volumes increased in key target countries such as Bangladesh and India.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher contribution margins from lower raw material costs.

Pigments and Additives

The decrease in revenues in our Pigments and Additives division for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015 was due to lower average selling prices, partially offset by higher sales volumes.  Average selling prices decreased primarily as a result of competitive pressure however they increased compared to the prior quarter.  Sales volumes increased primarily due to increased end use demand.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower contribution margins for titanium dioxide.

Corporate, LIFO and Other

Adjusted EBITDA from Corporate, LIFO and Other decreased by $14 million to a loss of $45 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to a loss of $31 million for the same period in 2015.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily the result of a decrease in LIFO inventory valuation income and a decrease in income from benzene sales.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Outstanding Debt

As of June 30, 2016, we had $1,213 million of combined cash and unused borrowing capacity compared to $1,023 million on December 31, 2015.

On April 1, 2016, we entered into a new $550 million 2016 term loan B due 2023.  Proceeds from the new term loan were used to repay in full our term loan B due 2017 and remaining term loan C due 2016.  We also extended the maturity of our revolving credit facility to 2021 and increased the amount to $650 million.

On July 22, 2016, we made a $100 million early repayment of debt on our term loan B due 2019.  We expect to record less than $1 million in early extinguishment of debt costs in the third quarter 2016.

Total capital expenditures for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016 were $90 million and $189 million, respectively.  As part of our completed ethylene oxide expansion in Port Neches, Texas, we received $26 million of capital reimbursement during the second quarter of 2016 from our customer with whom we have a multi-year offtake agreement.  We expect to spend approximately $450 million annually on capital expenditures in 2016 and 2017. 

We expect our 2016 depreciation and amortization to be approximately $430 million.

Income Taxes

During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we recorded an income tax expense of $32 million.  During the same period we paid $16 million in cash for income taxes. 

We expect our 2016 adjusted effective tax rate to be approximately 25 – 30%.  Our MTBE earnings are taxed at the U.S. statutory rate of 35%, variability in our MTBE earnings will have a meaningful impact on where our adjusted tax rate will be within that range.  We expect our long term adjusted effective tax rate to be approximately 30%.

We use adjusted EBITDA to measure the operating performance of our business.  We provide adjusted net income because we feel it provides meaningful insight for the investment community into the performance of our business.  We believe that net income (loss) is the performance measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP") that is most directly comparable to adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income.  Additional information with respect to our use of each of these financial measures follows:




Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted income (loss) per share, as used herein, are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.




Adjusted EBITDA is computed by eliminating the following from net income (loss):  (a) net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, net of tax; (b) interest; (c) income taxes; (d) depreciation and amortization; (e) acquisition and integration expenses, purchase accounting adjustments; (f) EBITDA from discontinued operations; (g) loss (gain) on disposition of businesses/assets; (h) loss on early extinguishment of debt; (i) certain legal settlements and related expenses; (j) plant incident remediation costs (credits), net; (k) amortization of pension and postretirement actuarial losses (gains); and (l) restructuring, impairment, plant closing and transition costs (credits).  The reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) is set forth in Table 4 above.




Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted income (loss) per share are computed by eliminating the after tax impact of the following items from net income (loss): (a) net income attributable to noncontrolling interest; (b) acquisition and integration expenses, purchase accounting adjustments; (c) impact of certain foreign tax credit elections; (d) loss (income) from discontinued operations; (e) discount amortization on settlement financing associated with the terminated merger; (f) loss (gain) on disposition of businesses/assets; (g) loss on early extinguishment of debt; (h) certain legal settlements and related expenses; (i) plant incident remediation costs (credits), net; (j) amortization of pension and postretirement actuarial losses (gains); and (k) restructuring, impairment, plant closing and transition costs (credits). The income tax impacts, if any, of each adjusting item represent a ratable allocation of the total difference between the unadjusted tax expense and the total adjusted tax expense, computed without consideration of any adjusting items using a with and without approach.  We do not adjust for changes in tax valuation allowances because we do not believe it provides more meaningful information than is provided under GAAP.  The reconciliation of adjusted net income (loss) to net income (loss) is set forth in Table 4 above.

During the first quarter 2010 we closed our Australian styrenics operations; results from associated business are treated as discontinued operations.

 Management internally uses a free cash flow measure: (a) to evaluate the Company's liquidity, (b) to evaluate strategic investments, (c) to plan stock buyback and dividend levels and (d) to evaluate the Company's ability to incur and service debt. Free cash flow is not a defined term under U.S. GAAP, and it should not be inferred that the entire free cash flow amount is available for discretionary expenditures. The Company defines free cash flow as cash flow provided by operating activities less cash flow used in investing activities, excluding merger and acquisition activities. Free cash flow is typically derived directly from the Company's condensed consolidated statement of cash flows; however, it may be adjusted for items that affect comparability between periods.
