Jeffry Quinn, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented:

“2019 marked a transformative year for Tronox with the close of the Cristal acquisition.? As the world’s largest vertically integrated TiO2 producer with an unmatched global footprint, we continue to grow with our customers as they grow anywhere in the world and benefit from our alignment with customers growing faster than the overall market. The success of our bespoke win-win margin stability initiative continues to enhance the stability of our top line relative to historical industry patterns.? We are well-positioned to create significant value for our shareholders.

“Our financial performance in 2019 was driven by strong execution on the many operating and commercial initiatives that were within our control, such as delivering synergies through our accelerated acquisition integration program, optimizing our global vertically integrated footprint, managing our cost structure and wisely allocating capital.? Despite macro-economic challenges, our Adjusted EBITDA margin remained strong at 23 percent, we generated free cash flow of $214 million and returned $315 million to shareholders through share repurchases and our dividend.? We also achieved total acquisition synergies of $89 million during the year, exceeding our Investor Day target by $44 million and third quarter increased guidance by $24 million.? Every day we are finding additional value-creating opportunities in the new Tronox. ?As a result, we are significantly increasing our synergy targets for 2020 and beyond.

“Our global team is moving forward in 2020 together as one new Tronox.? We remain focused on execution and delivery of our vertical integration strategy, which is creating an enterprise that displays greater stability in financial performance and cash generation throughout the cycle.? We will continue to manage what we can control a?? achieving the increased synergy targets, investing in our business through well-conceived, well-executed high return projects, deleveraging the balance sheet, and returning capital to shareholders through an increased dividend.

“Certainly, economic and global macro uncertainty remain as we have entered 2020, but we believe the outlook for the TiO2 sector is strong. As we emerge from a prolonged, but shallow industry trough, we have seen the beginning of an uptick in volumes and believe that historically this has been a precursor to an improving price environment. Due to our competitive advantage of vertical integration through a global footprint, we are confident that we will continue to outperform our industry peers in terms of EBITDA?margin and free cash flow generation irrespective of the economic environment.? We will deliver on our financial targets while remaining committed to employee development, safety and sustainability.”

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of?$0.07 per share payable on?Friday, March 20, 2020, to shareholders of record of the Company’s ordinary shares at the close of business on?Monday, March 9, 2020.

Full Year 2020 Outlook

Regarding the Company’s outlook for the full year 2020, Quinn commented, “Balancing global macro-economic uncertainty and near-term softness in zircon demand with the beginning of an uptick in the TiO2 sector and our confidence in our ability to deliver our increased synergy target, we are issuing the following outlook for 2020:

  • Full Year 2020 Outlook:
  • Revenue of $3.0 a?? $3.3 billion
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $700 a?? $800 million (Non-GAAP)
  • Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.55 a?? $1.10 (Non-GAAP)
  • Capex of $260 a?? $290 million
  • Free Cash Flow over $200 million (Non-GAAP)

?

_________________________________________

Note: for the Company’s guidance with respect to full-year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Free Cash Flow, we are not able to provide without unreasonable effort the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, or reconciliation to such GAAP financial measure, because certain items that impact such measures are uncertain, out of the Company’s control or cannot be reasonably predicted.

Financial Summary for the Quarter Ending December 31, 2019 (Reported Basis)

Tronox reported revenue of $693 million for the fourth quarter 2019, an increase of 62 percent from $429 million in the fourth quarter 2018.? Income from operations of $44 million compared to $68 million in the year-ago quarter.? Net income from continuing operations attributable to Tronox was nil, or $0.00 per diluted share, compared to net loss from continuing operations attributable to Tronox of $5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.? Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Tronox in the fourth quarter 2019 included an inventory step-up charge, transaction costs, restructuring and integration costs, loss on extinguishment of debt, a pension settlement gain and a charge for a capital gains tax payment that, combined, totaled $19 million or $0.14 per diluted share.? Excluding these items, adjusted net income attributable to Tronox (Non-GAAP) was $19 million, or $0.14 per diluted share.? Adjusted EBITDA of $156 million increased 30 percent compared to $120 million in the prior-year quarter.

_________________________________________

Note: Since Tronox and Cristal combined their respective businesses on April 10, 2019 and to assist in the following discussion of fourth quarter 2019 performance compared to the fourth quarter 2018, we have provided the results on both a pro forma basis and a reported basis.

Fourth Quarter 2019 vs. Fourth Quarter 2018

Reported Basis

  • Revenue of $693 million, increased 62 percent from $429 million
  • TiO2 sales of $544 million, including revenue from the acquired Cristal operations, increased 116 percent compared to $252 million
  • Zircon sales of $71 million, including revenue from the acquired Cristal operations, decreased 13 percent from $82 million
  • Feedstock and other products sales of $78 million, including revenue from the acquired Cristal operations, decreased 18 percent from $95 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $156 million increased 30 percent compared to $120 million

Pro Forma Basis

  • Revenue of $693 million was 5 percent lower than $728 million in the year-ago quarter
  • TiO2 sales of $544 million were 1 percent lower compared to $550 million; sales volumes increased 3 percent; selling prices were 4 percent lower on a local currency basis and 5 percent lower on a U.S. dollar basis
  • Zircon sales of $71 million were 34 percent lower than $107 million in the year-ago quarter; sales volumes were 29 percent lower when compared to a very strong prior-year quarter of shipments, as well as softer market conditions, primarily in China, with continued impacts felt by the trade war, environmental regulations and generally slower growth
  • Feedstock and other products sales of $78 million increased 10 percent from $71 million on higher CP slag sales
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $156 million was 28 percent lower than $216 million in the year-ago quarter, due to lower TiO2 selling prices, lower zircon sales volumes and selling prices and higher production costs, partially offset by favorable foreign exchange on costs, primarily the South African rand and Australian dollar, and acquisition synergies

Fourth Quarter 2019 vs. Third Quarter 2019

Reported Basis

  • Revenue of $693 million decreased 10 percent compared to $768 million
  • TiO2 sales of $544 million were 10 percent lower than $603 million; sales volumes declined within the seasonally typical range a?? 9 percent a?? and selling prices were 1 percent lower on a local currency basis and on a U.S. dollar basis
  • Zircon sales of $71 million increased 4 percent from $68 million, driven by a 7 percent increase in sales volumes benefiting from shipment timing, partially offset by 3 percent lower selling prices
  • Feedstock and other products sales of $78 million decreased 20 percent from $97 million driven by lower CP slag and pig iron sales volumes
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $156 million decreased 15 percent compared to $184 million, primarily due to seasonally normal lower sales volumes for TiO2, lower feedstock and other sales volumes, higher production costs and the absence of integration margin benefits, partially offset by favorable foreign exchange on costs, primarily the South African rand and Australian dollar, and acquisition synergies

Forward Looking Statements

Statements in this release that are not historical are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements, which are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us, may include projections of our future financial performance, including anticipated synergies, based on our growth and other strategies and anticipated trends in our business. These statements are only predictions based on our current expectations and projections about future events. There are important factors that could cause our actual results, level of activity, performance, actual synergies, or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activity, performance, anticipated synergies or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Significant risks and uncertainties may relate to, but are not limited to, market conditions and price volatility for titanium dioxide, zircon and other feedstock materials, as well as global and regional economic downturns, that adversely affect the demand for our end-use products; disruptions in production at our mining and manufacturing facilities; and other financial, economic, competitive, environmental, political, legal and regulatory factors. These and other risk factors are discussed in the Company’s filings with the?Securities and Exchange Commission?(SEC).?

Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for our management to predict all risks and uncertainties, nor can management assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, synergies or achievements. Neither we nor any other person assumes responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any of these forward-looking statements. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Unless otherwise required by applicable laws, we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether because of new information or future developments.

Use of Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Information

To provide investors and others with additional information regarding the financial results of Tronox Holdings plc, we have disclosed in this press release certain non-U.S. GAAP operating performance measures of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted net loss attributable to Tronox, including its presentation on a per share basis, and a non-U.S. GAAP liquidity measure of Free Cash Flow.? These non-U.S. GAAP financial measures are a supplement to and not a substitute for or superior to, the Company’s results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.? The non-U.S. GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may be different from non-U.S. GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. Specifically, the Company believes the non-U.S. GAAP information provides useful measures to investors regarding the Company’s financial performance by excluding certain costs and expenses that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results.? Beginning with the reporting of our first quarter of 2019 results, we modified our definition of the Adjusted EBITDA metric to exclude all realized and unrealized gains and losses caused by foreign currency re-measurement to be more consistent with how we report this metric to our lenders.? We have revised the comparable periods for consistency.? The presentation of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results or guidance prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.? A reconciliation of the non-U.S. GAAP financial measures to U.S. GAAP results is included herein.

Management believes these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures:

  • Reflect the ongoing business of Tronox Holdings plc in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparison and analysis of trends in its business, as they exclude income and expense that are not reflective of ongoing operating results;
  • Provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the operating results and future prospects of Tronox Holdings plc;
  • Provide an additional view of the operating performance of the Company by adding interest expense & income, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization to the net income. Further adjustments due to gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, stock-based compensation charges, transaction costs associated with acquisitions, integration costs, purchase accounting adjustments, foreign currency re-measurements, impairments, settlements of pension and postretirement plans, impacts of tax settlements on non-income related taxes, severance expense, and noncash pension and postretirement expense and accretion expense are made to exclude items that are either non-cash or unusual in nature;
  • Adjusted EBITDA is one of the primary measures management uses for planning and budgeting processes and to monitor and evaluate financial and operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under U.S. GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to measures of our financial performance as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, such as net income (loss). Because other companies may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than Tronox, EBITDA may not be, and Adjusted EBITDA as presented in this release is not, comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies; and
  • We believe that the non-U.S. GAAP financial measure “Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Tronox Holdings plc” and its presentation on a per share basis provide useful information about our operating results to investors and securities analysts. We also believe that excluding the effects of these items from operating results allows management and investors to compare more easily the financial performance of our underlying businesses from period to period.

For the Company’s guidance with respect to full year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted diluted earnings per share and Free Cash Flow, we are not able to provide without unreasonable effort the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, or reconciliation to such GAAP financial measure, because certain items that impact such measure are uncertain or out of our control, or cannot be reasonably predicted.

Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Information

On April 10, 2019, we announced the completion of the acquisition of the TiO2 business of Cristal which impacts the comparability of the reported results for 2019 compared to 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.? Since Tronox and Cristal have combined their respective businesses effective with the merger date of April 10, 2019, the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019 reflect the results of the combined business from April 10, 2019, while the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2018 include only the results of the legacy Tronox business. To assist with a discussion of the 2019 and 2018 results on a comparable basis, certain supplemental unaudited pro forma income statement and Adjusted EBITDA information is provided on a consolidated basis and is referred to as “pro forma information.”? The pro forma information has been prepared on a basis consistent with Article 11 of Regulation S-X, assuming the merger and merger-related divestitures of Cristal’s North American TiO2 business and the 8120 paper laminate grade had been consummated on January 1, 2018. In preparing this pro forma information, the historical financial information has been adjusted to give effect to pro forma adjustments that are (i) directly attributable to the business combination and other transactions presented herein, such as the merger-related divestitures, (ii) factually supportable, and (iii) expected to have a continuing impact on the combined entity’s consolidated results. The pro forma information is based on management’s assumptions and is presented for illustrative purposes and does not purport to represent what the results of operations would actually have been if the business combination and merger-related divestitures had occurred as of the dates indicated or what the results would be for any future periods. Also, the pro forma information does not include the impact of any revenue, cost or other operating synergies in the periods prior to the acquisition that may result from the business combination or any related restructuring costs.
