    The Chemours Company Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

    Committed to Core Growth Strategy and Managing Uncertain Macroeconomic Conditions

    WILMINGTON, Del., Nov. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

    Third Quarter 2019 Results

    • Net Sales of $1.4 billion
    • Net Income of $76 million, with diluted EPS of $0.46
    • Adjusted Net Income of $98 million, with diluted Adjusted EPS of $0.59
    • Adjusted EBITDA of $248 million
    • Free Cash Flow of $160 million

    Other Highlights

    • Published our second annual Corporate Responsibility Commitment (CRC) report
    • Announced the launch of a new Ti-Pure? product for the high-quality, specialty ink market

    The Chemours Company (Chemours) (NYSE: CC), a global chemistry company with leading market positions in Fluoroproducts, Chemical Solutions and Titanium Technologies, today announced its financial results for the third quarter 2019.

    "Our results in the third quarter reflect a weakening macro-economic environment that had an adverse impact on performance across the business," said Chemours President and CEO Mark Vergnano.? "Despite that, we continue to make progress on our core business imperatives, including Ti-Pure? value stabilization, Opteon? adoption, and Fluoropolymers application development. As part of our ongoing efforts to improve operating efficiencies, we are making several restructuring and portfolio changes across Chemours, including the shutdown of our Methylamines and Methylamides business."

    Third quarter 2019 net sales were $1.4 billion in comparison to $1.6 billion in the prior-year quarter.? Results were driven primarily by lower volume in Titanium Technologies and lower volume and price in Fluoroproducts, resulting in a 15 percent decrease in net sales. Currency was a small headwind in the quarter. Third?quarter net income was $76 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, inclusive of restructuring, asset related, and other charges of $34 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2019 was $248 million in comparison to $435 million in the previous year's third quarter, a result of lower volumes and fixed cost under-absorption in Titanium Technologies, lower margins in Fluoroproducts, and reduced F-Gas quota sales.?

    Fluoroproducts
    Fluoroproducts segment net sales in the third quarter were $636 million in comparison to $682 million in the prior-year quarter. The continued impact of illegal imports of HFC refrigerants into the EU, softer base refrigerants demand, and macro-economic weakness more than offset the positive impact of adoption of Opteon? mobile refrigerants and the increased sales of high-grade Fluoropolymers. Price and volume declined 4 percent and 2 percent, respectively, on a year-over-year basis. Segment Adjusted EBITDA of $122 million decreased 33 percent versus the prior-year quarter, primarily due to lower net sales and lower F-Gas quota sales.

    Chemical Solutions
    Chemical Solutions segment net sales in the third quarter were $140 million in comparison to $155 million in the prior-year quarter. Prices were lower year-over-year primarily driven by mix and lower cost pass-throughs in Performance Chemicals and Intermediates. Third quarter 2019 segment Adjusted EBITDA of $23 million decreased 4 percent versus the prior-year quarter, reflecting price headwinds partially offset by increased other income from licensing agreements.

    Titanium Technologies
    Titanium Technologies segment net sales in the third quarter were $614 million in comparison to $791 million in the prior-year quarter. This decrease was a result of lower volumes of Ti-Pure? titanium dioxide on a year-over-year basis, though volumes were up 10% sequentially as buying patterns stabilized.? Global average selling prices were largely stable in comparison to last year's third quarter. Segment Adjusted EBITDA was $137 million, in comparison to $268 million in last year's third quarter, driven mainly by lower volumes of Ti-Pure? titanium dioxide and fixed cost under-absorption.

    Corporate and Other
    Corporate and Other in the third quarter 2019 represented a $34 million offset to Adjusted EBITDA, versus a $39 million offset in the prior-year quarter. This improvement was primarily attributable to lower performance-related compensation expense and other general administrative costs.

    The company realized an Adjusted Effective Tax Rate of approximately 16 percent for the quarter.? The company expects its Adjusted Effective Tax Rate for the full-year 2019 to be within a range of 18 to 19 percent, reflecting the company's anticipated geographic mix of earnings.

    Liquidity
    As of September 30, 2019, gross consolidated debt was $4.2 billion. Debt, net of $694 million cash, was $3.5 billion, resulting in a net leverage ratio of approximately 3.1 times on a trailing twelve-month basis.

    Cash provided by operating activities for the third quarter 2019 was $288 million, versus $342 million in the prior-year quarter. Capital expenditures for the third quarter 2019 were $128 million, versus $116 million in last year's third quarter. Free Cash Flow for the third quarter 2019 was $160 million versus the prior-year quarter of $226 million.

    Outlook
    Mr. Vergnano concluded, "Looking ahead, we anticipate softer economic activity as we head into 2020, but are actively monitoring trade and other issues, which could change the dynamic. The Chemours team continues to work hard to build deeper relationships with our customers, through initiatives such as Ti-Pure? Value Stabilization and our application development work in Fluoroproducts. I remain confident that our customers' success will be our own, and investments in our customer offerings will create value for our shareholders over time."?

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures
    We prepare our financial statements in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Within this press release, we may make reference to Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate, Return on Invested Capital and Net Leverage Ratio which are non-GAAP financial measures. The company includes these non-GAAP financial measures because management believes they are useful to investors in that they provide for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making.

    Management uses Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate, Return on Invested Capital and Net Leverage Ratio to evaluate the company's performance excluding the impact of certain noncash charges and other special items which we expect to be infrequent in occurrence in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business from quarter to quarter.

    Accordingly, the company believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures, when used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, is a useful financial analysis tool that can assist investors in assessing the company's operating performance and underlying prospects. This analysis should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. This analysis, as well as the other information in this press release, should be read in conjunction with the company's financial statements and footnotes contained in the documents that the company files with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the company in this press release may be different from the methods used by other companies. For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to the attached schedules or the table, "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to GAAP Financial Measures" and materials posted to the company's website at investors.chemours.com.

Forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions and expectations of future events that may not be accurate or realized. These statements are not guarantees of future performance.

    Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to GAAP Net Income Reconciliation

    Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") is defined as income (loss) before income taxes, excluding the following items: interest expense, depreciation, and amortization; non-operating pension and other post-retirement employee benefit costs, which represent the components of net periodic pension (income) costs excluding the service cost component; exchange (gains) losses included in other income (expense), net; restructuring, asset-related, and other charges; asset impairments; (gains) losses on sale of business or assets; and, other items not considered indicative of the Company's ongoing operational performance and expected to occur infrequently. Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Chemours, adjusted for items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA, except interest expense, depreciation, amortization, and certain provision for (benefit from) income tax amounts.

    Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)
    (Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)

    Adjusted Earnings per Share to GAAP Earnings per Share Reconciliation

    Adjusted earnings per share ("EPS") is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted Adjusted EPS accounts for the dilutive impact of stock-based compensation awards, which includes unvested restricted shares. Diluted Adjusted EPS considers the impact of potentially-dilutive securities, except in periods in which there is a loss because the inclusion of the potentially-dilutive securities would have an anti-dilutive effect.

    The Company's estimates for the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding - basic and diluted reflect actual results through September 30, 2019 which are carried forward for the projection period and updated for the estimated impacts of the Company's 2019 share repurchases.

    (2)

    Diluted earnings per share is calculated using net income available to common shareholders divided by diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding during each period, which includes unvested restricted shares. Diluted earnings per share considers the impact of potentially dilutive securities except in periods in which there is a loss because the inclusion of the potential common shares would have an anti-dilutive effect.

    (*)??

    The Company's estimates reflect its current visibility and expectations based on market factors, such as currency movements, macro-economic factors, and end-market demand. Actual results could differ materially from these current estimates.
