Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) reported second quarter 2014 earnings of $22.4 million, or $0.28 per share, compared to second quarter 2013 earnings of $82.7 million, or $0.98 per share.  Second quarter 2014 adjusted earnings were $86.8 million, or $1.10 per share, compared to $79.2 million, or $0.94 per share, for the second quarter of 2013 (see notes to the condensed consolidated financial information).  The Company reported net sales of $604.7 million in the second quarter of 2014, up from net sales of $576.8 million in the second quarter of 2013, driven mainly by higher volumes in Catalysts due to strong market demand partly offset by lower Specialty Chemicals volumes in Performance Chemicals.

Earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $79.0 million, or $0.99 per share, compared to $166.7 million, or $1.92 per share, for 2013.  Adjusted earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $165.2 million, or $2.08 per share, compared to $160.0 million, or $1.84 per share, for 2013.  Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $1.20 billion, up from $1.16 billion for the same period in 2013, driven mainly by higher Catalysts volumes on strong demand and order timing, and the favorable impacts of a stronger European Union Euro, partly offset by lower pricing and volumes in Performance Chemicals.

On April 15, 2014, the Company signed a definitive agreement to sell its antioxidant, ibuprofen and propofol businesses and assets to SI Group, Inc.  The Company's second quarter results include a pre-tax charge of $80.7 million ($60.3 million after income taxes, or $0.76 per share) related to the expected loss on the anticipated sale of the assets.  The expected loss represents the difference between the carrying value of the related assets and their estimated fair value, based on the estimated sales price as outlined in the agreement less estimated costs to sell.  The charge is included within (Loss) income from discontinued operations (net of tax) in the consolidated statements of income.  The sale is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close later in 2014.

"Improved trends drove stronger than expected results in Catalyst Solutions where we experienced stronger customer demand across the portfolio and very high operating rates at our Bayport FCC facility in advance of a planned August turnaround.  The strength in Catalyst Solutions more than offset weaker Performance Chemicals results, which were hurt by lower clear completion fluid volumes," said Albemarle's president and CEO Luke Kissam.  "Overall results were up year over year and sequentially in terms of sales and earnings.  It is a tribute to our employees and their collective ability to focus on execution that they were able to deliver these quarterly results at the same time as we were finalizing and announcing an agreement on a transaction as transformative as Rockwood."

On July 15, 2014, Albemarle entered into the Merger Agreement with Rockwood Holdings Inc. ("Rockwood"), pursuant to which Albemarle will acquire Rockwood in a cash and stock transaction valued at approximately $6.2 billion. Under the terms of the transaction, each outstanding share of Rockwood common stock will be exchanged for $50.65 in cash and 0.4803 of a share of Albemarle common stock. The transaction values Rockwood at $85.53 per share, based on the closing price of Albemarle's shares on July 14, 2014. Upon closing of the transaction, Albemarle shareholders will own approximately 70% of the combined company and Rockwood shareholders will own approximately 30% of the combined company. The boards of directors of both Albemarle and Rockwood have approved the transaction. The transaction is subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions and is expected to close by the first quarter of 2015.

Quarterly Segment Results

Performance Chemicals reported net sales of $334.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, a decrease of 3 percent compared to net sales in the second quarter of 2013, on unfavorable Specialty Chemicals volumes and lower pricing mainly driven by Fire Safety Solutions, partly offset by the favorable impacts of a stronger European Union Euro.  Segment income for Performance Chemicals was $73.0 million in the second quarter of 2014, a 12 percent decline from $82.6 million in the second quarter of 2013, driven by unfavorable volumes on market demand and order timing, mainly in Specialty Chemicals, unfavorable pricing impacts in Fire Safety Solutions and higher factory spending, partly offset by lower raw materials pricing in Specialty Chemicals and the favorable impacts of a stronger European Union Euro.

Catalyst Solutions generated net sales of $270.5 million in the second quarter of 2014, a 16 percent increase from net sales in the second quarter of 2013, primarily on favorable volumes and pricing.  Catalyst Solutions segment income was $67.9 million in the second quarter of 2014, up 56 percent from second quarter 2013 results of $43.7 million, due primarily to strong volumes across the board and lower costs.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and other expense was $18.8 million ($20.1 million excluding non-operating pension and OPEB items) for the second quarter of 2014.  The $2.2 million increase from the comparable period in 2013 was due primarily to higher incentive compensation costs.

Interest and financing expenses were $8.7 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $7.6 million for the second quarter of 2013, due primarily to decreases in interest capitalized on lower average construction work in progress balances in the 2014 period.

Our adjusted effective income tax rates, which exclude discontinued operations, special and non-operating pension and OPEB items, were 22.6 percent and 20.3 percent for the second quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.  Our effective tax rate continues to be influenced by the level and geographic mix of income, and benefits from a favorable mix of income in lower tax jurisdictions.

Cash Flow

Our cash flow from operations was approximately $295.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, up 65 percent from the same period in 2013, and we had $515.1 million in cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2014.  During the six months ending June 30, 2014, cash on hand and cash provided by operations funded capital expenditures for plant, machinery and equipment of approximately $46.7 million, dividends to shareholders of $41.3 million and $150.0 million for repurchases of approximately 2.0 million shares of our common stock pursuant to the terms of our accelerated share repurchase programs entered into in the first and second quarters of 2014.

The Company's performance for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 will be discussed on a conference call at 9:00 AM Eastern Daylight time on July 31, 2014.  The call can be accessed by dialing 888-713-4213 (International Dial-In # 617-213-4865), and entering conference ID 37694874.  The Company's earnings presentation and supporting material can be accessed through Albemarle's website under Investors at www.albemarle.com.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Information

(a)   Non-operating pension and OPEB items, consisting of mark-to-market (MTM) actuarial gains/losses as well as interest cost and expected return on assets, are included in Corporate & other as follows:

  • For the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, net charges (benefits) amounting to $(1.4) million ($0.9 million after income taxes, or $0.01 per share) and $(1.5) million ($0.9 million after income taxes, or $0.01 per share), respectively.  There were no MTM actuarial gains/losses recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2014 or 2013.
  • For the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, net charges (benefits) amounting to $12.7 million ($8.1 million after income taxes, or $0.10 per share) and $(3.6) million ($2.2 million after income taxes, or $0.03 per share), respectively.  The MTM actuarial loss in 2014 was $15.4 million ($9.8 million after income taxes, or $0.12 per share) and resulted from a curtailment related to one of our U.S. defined benefit pension plans and our supplemental executive retirement plan which required a remeasurement of the related assets and obligations during the first quarter.  The curtailment was in connection with our workforce reduction plan initiated in the fourth quarter of 2013.  There were no MTM actuarial gains/losses recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2013.

Although non-operating pension and OPEB items are included in cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative expenses in accordance with GAAP, we believe that these components of pension cost are mainly driven by market performance, and we manage these separately from the operational performance of our businesses. Non-operating pension and OPEB items included in cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative expenses are as follows (in millions):

  • Certain significant acquisition-related costs of $4.9 million ($3.1 million after income taxes, or $0.04 per share).
  • Charges of $3.3 million ($2.1 million after income taxes, or $0.03 per share) related to the write-off of certain multi-product facility project costs that we do not expect to recover in future periods.

Six months ended June 30, 2014 -

  • Net charges amounting to $17.0 million ($11.1 million after income taxes, or $0.14 per share) in connection with a reduction of aluminum alkyls high cost supply capacity.
  • Certain significant acquisition-related costs of $4.9 million ($3.1 million after income taxes, or $0.04 per share).
  • Charges of $3.3 million ($2.1 million after income taxes, or $0.03 per share) related to the write-off of certain multi-product facility project costs that we do not expect to recover in future periods.

(c)   On April 15, 2014, the Company signed a definitive agreement to sell its antioxidant, ibuprofen and propofol businesses and assets to SI Group, Inc. for an undisclosed amount of cash. In the second quarter of 2014, the Company began accounting for these assets as held for sale, and as such the financial results of the disposal group have been presented as discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of income and excluded from segment results for all periods presented.  (Loss) income from discontinued operations (net of tax) in the consolidated statements of income for the second quarter of 2014 includes a pre-tax charge of $80.7 million ($60.3 million after income taxes, or $0.76 per share) related to the expected loss on the anticipated sale of the assets.  The expected loss represents the difference between the carrying value of the related assets and their estimated fair value, based on the estimated sales price as outlined in the agreement less estimated costs to sell.

(d)   Totals may not add due to rounding.

A description of other non-GAAP financial measures that we use to evaluate our operations and financial performance, and reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP, can be found in the Investors section of our website at www.albemarle.com, under "Non-GAAP Reconciliations" under "Financials."   Also, see attached for a supplemental reconciliation of our Segment operating profit and Segment income amounts to GAAP Operating profit and GAAP Net income attributable to Albemarle Corporation, respectively, as well as for a supplemental reconciliation of Adjusted net income attributable to Albemarle Corporation, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Net income attributable to Albemarle Corporation.

(Unaudited)

Our segment information includes measures we refer to as Segment operating profit, Segment income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are financial measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP.  The Company has reported Segment operating profit, Segment income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because management believes that these financial measures provide transparency to investors and enable period-to-period comparability of financial performance.  Segment operating profit, Segment income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as alternatives to Operating profit or Net income attributable to Albemarle Corporation, as determined in accordance with GAAP.

See below for a reconciliation of Segment operating profit and Segment income, the non-GAAP financial measures, to Operating profit and Net income attributable to Albemarle Corporation, respectively, the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.
