WYNYARD, UK, Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Venator Materials PLC (NYSE: VNTR) ("Venator"), announced today it has filed its quarterly results on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2017 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The announced operating results are the same as those previously reported by Huntsman Corporation for its Pigments and Additives business in its second quarter earnings release issued on July 27, 2017.
Simon Turner, President and CEO of Venator, said: "The successful close of the IPO and legal separation from Huntsman completed earlier this month were major milestones for Venator and I would like to thank the Huntsman board and management for their support.
Our strong second quarter results underscore the quality of the Venator business, reflecting our market leading, high-quality product portfolio, our competitive asset base, the benefits of our transformation program and the hard work of our talented associates.
Selling prices for titanium dioxide continue to improve and we continue to work closely with our customers in this regard. The third quarter is normally softer on a sequential basis, however, this quarter we expect our combined operating segments adjusted EBITDA to improve compared to the second quarter."
