Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) today reported third quarter 2013 results with revenues of $2,842 million and adjusted EBITDA of $376 million

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

"Our third quarter results were very strong, excluding results from our Pigments business our earnings improved compared to the previous year and quarter.  Earnings within our Pigments business have been improving throughout the year and we are encouraged by industry trends. Earnings improved across all of our businesses compared to last quarter.

"During the quarter, we announced an agreement with Rockwood Holdings to acquire their Performance Additives and Titanium Dioxide businesses.  We expect to pursue a public offering of our new combined Pigments business to allow greater investor focus and appreciation for our differentiated businesses.  With improving market conditions and pro forma synergies in excess of $130 million we believe this acquisition will add significant shareholder value.   We also closed on an acquisition within our Polyurethanes division which strengthens our downstream and specialty capabilities.   Both of these transactions are immediately accretive to our earnings.

"We recently announced additional restructuring, specifically within our Performance Products business.  The future EBITDA benefit of our companywide restructuring efforts is expected to be approximately $140 million; in addition to the approximate $100 million we have already achieved.  I am encouraged by our third quarter results and am optimistic about our future prospects."

Segment Analysis for 3Q13 Compared to 3Q12

Polyurethanes

The increase in revenues in our Polyurethanes division for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 was primarily due to higher sales volumes partially offset by lower average selling prices and unfavorable change in sales mix.  MDI sales volumes increased as a result of improved demand in all regions and across most major markets.  PO/MTBE sales volumes increased due to strong demand.  PO/MTBE average selling prices decreased primarily due to less favorable market conditions partially offset by an increase in MDI average selling prices in the Americas and the strength of the euro against the U.S. dollar.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower PO/MTBE earnings (third quarter 2012 benefited approximately $30 million from industry supply outages) and the impact of the extended force majeure at our MDI facility in Rotterdam, The Netherlands (approximate $10 million impact on the third quarter 2013).

Performance Products

The increase in revenues in our Performance Products division for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 was due to higher average selling prices and higher sales volumes.  Average selling prices increased primarily in response to higher raw material costs and the strength of the euro against the U.S. dollar.  Sales volumes increased primarily due to higher sales of maleic anhydride and amines, partially offset by lower surfactant sales.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher sales volumes and higher margins.

Advanced Materials

The decrease in revenues in our Advanced Materials division for the three months ended September 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 all regions primarily as a result of weak demand and increased competition in base resins and a focus on higher value component and formulations sales such as aerospace and transportation and industrial markets.  Average selling prices increased in all regions primarily in response to higher raw materials costs and improved sales mix.  The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher contribution margins and lower manufacturing and selling, general and administrative costs as a result of our restructuring efforts.

Textile Effects

The increase in revenues in our Textile Effects division for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012 was due to higher sales volumes and higher average selling prices partially offset by the strength of the U.S. dollar primarily against the Indian rupee.  Sales volumes increased primarily due to increased market share in key countries.  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 September 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 partially offset by the strength of the euro against the U.S. dollar.  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 higher sales volumes and 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 $44 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to a loss of $38 million for the same period in 2012.  The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily the result of a decrease in unallocated foreign currency gain (nil in 2013 compared to $4 million gain in 2012).

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Outstanding Debt

As of September 30, 2013 we had $1,005 million of combined cash and unused borrowing capacity compared to $887 million at December 31, 2012.

On August 22, 2013, we entered into an amendment of our senior credit facilities that provided for additional term loans of $100 million.  The net proceeds were be used for general corporate purposes.

On October 15, 2013, we entered into an amendment to our senior credit facilities that provides for a new seven year term loan of $1.2 billion as well as an increase in our existing revolving credit facility by $200 million to $600 million. We have secured commitments from a group of financial institutions to provide this term loan and expanded revolving credit facility. This new financing is expected be funded when we complete the acquisition of the Performance Additives and Titanium Dioxide businesses of Rockwood Holdings, Inc.

Total capital expenditures for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 were $114 million and for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were $295 million.  We expect to spend approximately $450 million on capital expenditures in 2013.

Income Taxes

During the three months ended September 30, 2013 we recorded income tax expense of $81 million and paid $14 million in cash for income taxes.  Our adjusted effective income tax rate for the three months and year to date ended September 30, 2013 were approximately 39% and 36% respectively.  During the third quarter of 2013 we experienced higher earnings in the U.S. and lower earnings in Europe where we have tax valuation allowances.  We expect our full year 2013 adjusted effective tax rate to be approximately 36% 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 and purchase accounting inventory adjustments; 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 and purchase accounting inventory adjustments; 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.
