Company to hold investor call to further discuss legacy Cristal business performance
STAMFORD, Conn., June 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tronox Holdings plc (NYSE:TROX) ("Tronox" or the "Company"), the world's largest vertically integrated producer of titanium dioxide pigment, today announced its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $100 million of the company's stock.
"This authorization to repurchase shares is consistent with our long-term capital allocation priorities of deleveraging, investing in high-return organic projects to lower our costs and opportunistically returning capital to shareholders," said Jeffry N. Quinn, chairman and chief executive officer of Tronox. "We believe our shares are drastically undervalued and repurchasing shares at the current price is a high-return use of a portion of our discretionary capital that will not impact our ability to achieve our deleveraging commitments or our timeline to deliver the substantial synergies resulting from the Cristal acquisition."
