Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) reported fourth quarter 2013 earnings of $155.9 million, or $1.91 per share, compared to fourth quarter 2012 earnings of $37.7 million, or $0.42 per share.  Excluding special and non-operating pension and OPEB items (see notes to the condensed consolidated financial information), fourth quarter 2013 earnings were $88.4 million, or $1.08 per share, compared to $105.2 million, or $1.17 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012.  The Company reported net sales of $692.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, up from net sales of $687.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, driven by higher volumes in Polymer Solutions and Catalysts, partly offset by lower Fine Chemistry volumes, lower pass through metals pricing, and lower Flame Retardants pricing.

Earnings for the full year 2013 were $413.2 million, or $4.90 per share, compared to $311.5 million, or $3.47 per share, for 2012.  Excluding special and non-operating pension and OPEB items, earnings for 2013 were $342.3 million, or $4.06 per share, compared to $436.2 million, or $4.85 per share, for 2012.  Net sales for 2013 were $2.6 billion, down from $2.7 billion for 2012, driven by lower metals surcharges, our exit of the phosphorus flame retardants business, and pricing on certain products, partly offset by higher sales volumes.

As previously announced, effective January 1, 2014, the Company's assets and businesses were aligned under two Global Business Units:  Performance Chemicals, including Fire Safety Solutions, Specialty Chemicals and Fine Chemistry Services, and Catalyst Solutions, including Refinery Catalyst Solutions, Performance Catalyst Solutions and Antioxidants.

"Our fourth quarter results reflected a strong finish to an excellent year for refinery catalysts, offset by softer than expected flame retardants and clear completion fluids volumes, reflecting more cautious inventory management by our customers and somewhat muted demand," stated Luke Kissam, CEO. "In 2013, we undertook a number of strategic initiatives in our catalysts and bromine franchises that we expect to lead to growth in 2014 and beyond. We remain confident in our strategy and the cash generation of our business, which enabled us to return approximately $660 million to our shareholders in 2013."

Quarterly Segment Results

Catalysts generated net sales of $306.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a 4 percent increase from net sales in the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily on favorable volumes in Refinery Catalysts Solutions, partly offset by lower metals pass through surcharges and unfavorable Performance Catalyst Solutions pricing.  Catalysts segment income was $80.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, up 2 percent from fourth quarter 2012 results of $78.8 million, due primarily to lower input costs, partly offset by unfavorable pricing and lower equity in net income from unconsolidated investments.

Polymer Solutions reported net sales of $201.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of less than 1 percent compared to net sales in the fourth quarter of 2012, on higher volumes offset by unfavorable pricing impacts.  Segment income for Polymer Solutions was $27.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a 24 percent decline from $36.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, driven by unfavorable pricing, unfavorable currency impacts primarily from a weaker Japanese Yen, and higher manufacturing costs, partly offset by favorable sales volumes and increased equity in net income from unconsolidated investments.

Fine Chemistry net sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 were $184.8 million, a 4 percent decrease from net sales in the fourth quarter of 2012, due mainly to unfavorable sales volumes.  Segment income for Fine Chemistry was $28.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, down 20 percent from fourth quarter 2012 results of $35.5 million, due primarily to increased spending and unfavorable sales volumes, partly offset by favorable pricing.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and other income was $124.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2013.  The $223.2 million increase from the comparable period in 2012 was due primarily to lower costs from non-operating pension and OPEB items which included a fourth quarter mark-to-market (MTM) actuarial gain of $139.0 million in 2013 and a fourth quarter MTM actuarial loss of $86.0 million in 2012.

Interest and financing expenses were $9.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to $7.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, due primarily to decreases in interest capitalized on lower average construction work in progress balances in the 2013 period.

Excluding special and non-operating pension and OPEB items, our effective income tax rates were 19.7 percent and 18.3 percent for the fourth quarter of 2013 and 2012, respectively.  Our effective tax rate continues to be influenced by the level and geographic mix of income, and benefits from a favorable mix of income in lower tax jurisdictions. 

Cash Flow

Our cash flow from operations was approximately $433 million for the full year 2013, down 11 percent from 2012, and we had $477 million in cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2013.  During 2013, proceeds from borrowings net of repayments, cash on hand and cash provided by operations funded capital expenditures for plant, machinery and equipment of approximately $155 million (which includes approximately $37 million in capital expenditures associated with our Jordanian joint venture), dividends to shareholders of $78.1 million, dividends to noncontrolling interests of $10.0 million, pension and postretirement contributions of $13.3 million and $582.3 million for repurchases of our common stock pursuant to the terms of our share repurchase program and our accelerated share repurchase program which was completed in the fourth quarter.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Information



(a)

Non-operating pension and OPEB items, consisting of MTM actuarial gains/losses as well as interest cost and expected return on assets, are included in Corporate & other as follows:




  • For the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, net (benefits) charges amounting to $(140.8) million ($89.5 million after income taxes, or $1.09 per share) and $84.2 million ($53.7 million after income taxes, or $0.60 per share), respectively. The MTM actuarial (gain) loss was $(139.0) million ($88.3 million after income taxes, or $1.08 per share) and $86.0 million ($54.8 million after income taxes, or $0.61 per share) for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
  • For the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, net (benefits) charges amounting to $(146.2) million ($92.8 million after income taxes, or $1.10 per share) and $65.3 million ($41.7 million after income taxes, or $0.46 per share), respectively. The MTM actuarial (gain) loss was $(139.0) million ($88.3 million after income taxes, or $1.05 per share) and $75.7 million ($48.2 million after income taxes, or $0.54 per share) for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

Although non-operating pension and OPEB items are included in cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative expenses in accordance with GAAP, we believe that these components of pension cost are mainly driven by market performance, and we manage these separately from the operational performance of our businesses. Non-operating pension and OPEB items included in cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative expenses are as follows (in millions):

(Unaudited)


Our segment information includes measures we refer to as "Segment operating profit," "Segment income," "EBITDA" and "EBITDA excluding special and non-operating pension and OPEB items," which are financial measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. The Company has reported Segment operating profit, Segment income, EBITDA and EBITDA excluding special and non-operating pension and OPEB items because management believes that these financial measures provide transparency to investors and enable period-to-period comparability of financial performance. Segment operating profit, Segment income, EBITDA and EBITDA excluding special and non-operating pension and OPEB items should not be considered as alternatives to operating profit or net income attributable to Albemarle Corporation, as determined in accordance with GAAP.


See below for a reconciliation of Segment operating profit and Segment income, the non-GAAP financial measures, to Operating profit and Net income attributable to Albemarle Corporation, respectively, the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.
