Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) today reported second quarter 2013 results with revenues of $2,830 million and adjusted EBITDA of $304 million

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

"I am pleased with the quality of our second quarter results. Excluding the approximate $25 million negative impact from the force majeure at our European MDI facility, and with the exception of our TiO2 Pigments division, all of our divisions improved year over year and compared to the prior quarter's performance. We are starting to see the benefits of our restructuring efforts within our Textile Effects and Advanced Materials divisions. I am also impressed with the strong earnings from our Performance Products division following the planned maintenance closure earlier in the year.

While many areas of the global economy continue to moderate or languish, between new products, our focus on growing sectors and our further cost reduction efforts, we believe that we will see an improving second half of the year."

Segment Analysis for 2Q13 Compared to 2Q12

Polyurethanes

The decrease in revenues in our Polyurethanes division for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 was primarily due to sales mix effect partially offset by higher average selling prices.  MDI sales volumes decreased in the European region primarily as a result of the force majeure at our MDI facility in Rotterdam, The Netherlands partially offset by increased sales volumes in the Americas and Asia Pacific regions.  PO/MTBE sales volumes were essentially unchanged.  MDI average selling prices increased in all regions primarily in response to higher raw material costs.  PO/MTBE average selling prices decreased primarily due to less favorable market conditions.  Adjusted EBITDA was unchanged as increased PO/MTBE earnings offset the impact of the force majeure at our MDI facility in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Performance Products

Sales revenues in our Performance Products division for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 were essentially unchanged.  Average selling prices decreased primarily in response to lower raw material costs offset by an improvement in sales mix effect.  Sales volumes were essentially unchanged as higher sales of maleic anhydride and glycols were offset by lower surfactant sales.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher margins in our maleic anhydride and U.S. ethylene derivatives.

Advanced Materials

The decrease in revenues in our Advanced Materials division for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 was primarily due to lower sales volumes, partially offset by higher average selling prices.  Sales volumes decreased in the European and India Middle East regions, primarily in our base resins business due to weaker demand and increased competition while sales volumes in the Americas region increased primarily due to strong demand in the aerospace and coatings and construction markets.  Average selling prices increased in the European region, primarily in response to higher raw material costs and increased focus on higher value component sales, partially offset by decreases in average selling prices in the Asia Pacific formulations business and in the Americas base resins business due to increased competition.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower manufacturing and selling, general and administrative costs as a result of our restructuring efforts, partially offset by lower contribution margins and lower sales volumes.

Textile Effects

The increase in revenues in our Textile Effects division for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 was due to higher sales volumes and higher average selling prices.  Sales volumes increased primarily due to increased market share in key markets.  Average selling prices increased primarily in response to higher raw material costs.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher sales volumes, higher contribution margins and lower manufacturing and selling, general and administrative costs as a result of our restructuring efforts.

Pigments

The decrease in revenues in our Pigments division for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 was primarily due to lower average selling prices partially offset by higher sales volumes.  Average selling prices decreased in all regions of the world primarily as a result of high industry inventory levels, however we have now seen sequential stabilization in selling prices.  Sales volumes increased primarily due to higher end-use demand.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower contribution margins partially offset by lower manufacturing and selling, general and administrative costs as a result of our restructuring efforts.

Corporate, LIFO and Other

Adjusted EBITDA from Corporate, LIFO and Other decreased by $6 million to a loss of $49 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to a loss of $43 million for the same period in 2012.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily the result of a $5 million increase in LIFO inventory valuation expense ($4 million of income in 2013 compared to $9 million of income in 2012).

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Outstanding Debt

As of June 30, 2013 we had $838 million of combined cash and unused borrowing capacity compared to $887 million at December 31, 2012.

On April 29, 2013, we amended our accounts receivable securitization programs to, among other things, extend the maturities to April 2016, reduce the applicable borrowing rates and increase the availability under the programs.

Total capital expenditures for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 were $92 million.  We expect to spend approximately $450 million on capital expenditures in 2013.

Income Taxes

During the three months ended June 30, 2013 we recorded an income tax expense of $44 million and paid $29 million in cash for income taxes.  Our adjusted effective income tax rate for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was approximately 36%.

We expect our full year 2013 adjusted effective tax rate to be approximately 35% primarily due to the effect of tax valuation allowances and our regional mix of income.  We expect our long term effective income tax rate to be approximately 30 - 35%.

We use EBITDA and 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) attributable to Huntsman Corporation 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 EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income.  Additional information with respect to our use of each of these financial measures follows:

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Huntsman Corporation before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA as used herein is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The reconciliation of EBITDA to net income (loss) attributable to Huntsman Corporation is set forth in Table 5 above.

Adjusted EBITDA is computed by eliminating the following from EBITDA: acquisition expenses; loss (gain) on initial consolidation of subsidiaries; EBITDA from discontinued operations; loss (gain) on disposition of businesses/assets; loss on early extinguishment of debt; extraordinary loss (gain) on the acquisition of a business; certain legal settlements and related expenses; amortization of pension and postretirement actuarial losses (gains); and restructuring, impairment, plant closing and transition costs (credits). The reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to EBITDA is set forth in Table 4 above.

Adjusted net income (loss) is computed by eliminating the after tax impact of the following items from net income (loss) attributable to Huntsman Corporation: acquisition expenses; loss (gain) on initial consolidation of subsidiaries; loss (income) from discontinued operations; discount amortization on settlement financing associated with the terminated merger; loss (gain) on disposition of businesses/assets; loss on early extinguishment of debt; extraordinary loss (gain) on the acquisition of a business; certain legal settlements and related expenses; amortization of pension and postretirement actuarial losses (gains); and restructuring, impairment, plant closing and transition costs (credits). 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) attributable to Huntsman Corporation common stockholders is set forth in Table 4 above.
