Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) today reported third quarter 2016 results with revenues of $2,363 million, net income of $64 million and adjusted EBITDA of $272 million. 

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

"We have been intensely focused on improving our free cash flow generation, our results this quarter are reflective of this drive for value notwithstanding weather related and other production outages that impacted our earnings.  In 2016 we planned to generate more than $350 million of free cash flow, this quarter we generated $300 million of free cash flow and year-to-date we have generated $569 million.  Subsequently, we made $200 million of early repayments on our debt within the third quarter.  Much of the improvement has come from increased discipline related to capital expenditures and working capital management.

"Earlier today, our temporarily named Huntsman Spin Corporation, filed an initial Form 10 registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the spin-off of our Pigments & Additives and Textile Effects businesses.  This filing represents an important step in the progression towards a separation.  Subject to market conditions we plan to separate in the first half of 2017.

"As I consider our operational performance in the quarter there are some key trends that standout.  Our MDI business is growing sales volume and improving margins.  Within Performance Products, margins for our key businesses, amines and maleic anhydride have stabilized.  Advanced Materials and Textile Effects continue to operate at a steady and modestly improving pace.  TiO2 prices are improving and with additional increases expected in the future, the timing of our spin-off should be well positioned.  Poor refining markets continue to compress our MTBE margins."

Segment Analysis for 3Q16 Compared to 3Q15

Polyurethanes

The decrease in revenues in our Polyurethanes division for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015 was primarily due to lower average selling prices and lower MTBE sales volumes, partially offset by higher MDI 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.  MTBE sales volumes decreased primarily due to the impact of weather related and other production outages.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower MTBE margins and the impact of weather related and other production outages estimated at approximately $15 million, partially offset by higher MDI margins and sales volumes.

Performance Products

The decrease in revenues in our Performance Products division for the three months ended September 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 the impact of weather related and other production outages, softer demand in China and oilfield applications as well as competitive market conditions.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to the impact of weather related and other production outages estimated at approximately $10 million as well as 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 September 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 and wind markets, partially offset by global growth in our aerospace and electronics markets.  Average selling prices decreased in our Asia Pacific region primarily as a result of competitive pressure in our electrical, electronics and wind markets, partially offset by higher average selling prices in our European and Americas regions.  Adjusted EBITDA was essentially flat as lower sales volumes and lower margins were mostly offset by lower selling, general and administrative costs.

Textile Effects

The decrease in revenues in our Textile Effects division for the three months ended September 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 and the foreign currency exchange impact of a stronger U.S. dollar against major international currencies.  Sales volumes increased in key target countries, mainly in South Asia.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher margins from lower raw material costs as well as lower selling, general and administrative costs.

Pigments and Additives

The decrease in revenues in our Pigments and Additives division for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to the same period in 2015 was due to lower average selling prices.  Average selling prices decreased primarily as a result of competitive pressure, however they increased compared to the prior quarter.  Sales volumes were unchanged as increased end use demand for our titanium dioxide products were offset by seasonally lower volumes for our additives products.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher margins and lower fixed costs resulting from restructuring savings.

Corporate, LIFO and Other

Adjusted EBITDA from Corporate, LIFO and Other increased by $5 million to a loss of $45 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016 compared to a loss of $50 million for the same period in 2015.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily the result of an increase in unallocated foreign currency exchange gains and an increase in income from benzene sales.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Outstanding Debt

As of September 30, 2016, we had $1,247 million of combined cash and unused borrowing capacity compared to $1,023 million on December 31, 2015.

We made a $100 million early repayment of debt on July 22, 2016, followed by another $100 million early repayment of debt on September 30, 2016.  Both of these early repayments were applied to our term loan B due 2019. 

Total capital expenditures for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $101 million and $290 million, respectively.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2016 we have received capital reimbursements from business partners of $28 million.  We expect to spend approximately $450 million on capital expenditures in 2016 and $400 million in 2017 before capital reimbursements from business partners which are expected to be approximately $30 million and $20 million, respectively.

We expect our depreciation and amortization to be approximately $435 million in 2016 and approximately $450 million in 2017.

Income Taxes

During the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2016, we recorded an income tax benefit of $1 million and income tax expense of $58 million, respectively.  During the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2016, we paid cash for income taxes of $8 million and $29 million, respectively. 

Our MTBE earnings are taxed at the U.S. statutory rate of 35% and variability in our MTBE earnings has a meaningful impact on our adjusted effective tax rate.  The combination of significantly lower MTBE earnings,  the impact of weather related and other production outages in the U.S., and higher earnings in countries with valuation allowances, resulted in an unusually low adjusted effective tax rate of 14% in the third quarter of 2016.

We expect our 2016 and 2017 adjusted effective tax rate to be approximately 25 - 30%, with variability primarily conditioned on earnings within the U.S.  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.
