August 6, 2014

On July 15 a Merger was Announced with Albemarle Valuing Rockwood at ~$6.2 Billion

Combination Creates a Premier Global Specialty Chemicals Company

Quarter Highlights

  • Completed the acquisition of a 49% interest in Talison
  • Strong quarterly results and margins driven by strong demand growth fromnearly all surface treatment applications, lithium battery applications and the Talison joint venture, offset partially by potash and organometallics
  • Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations - $0.62 per share versus $0.39 per share
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations - $89 million versus $86 million, including recently closed Talison transaction



    PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Rockwood Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ROC) today posted as reported net income from continuing operations of $34.1 million, or $0.47 per share for the second quarter of 2014, which included other net charges of $11.4 million, as compared to $25.7 million, or $0.33 per share for the same period in the prior year, which included other net charges of $5.3 million.

    Excluding these other net charges, adjusted net income from continuing operations was $45.5 million, or $0.62 per share, in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $31.0 million, or $0.39 per share, for the same period in the prior year. Quarter on quarter results benefited from strong performance in Surface Treatment and battery applications in Lithium, as well as lower interest expense, which more than offset lower organometallics and potash volumes in Lithium. Additionally, earnings per share benefited from fewer common shares outstanding due to share repurchases.

    For the six months ended June 30, 2014, as reported net income from continuing operations was $55.8 million, or $0.75 per share, which included other net charges of $21.9 million, as compared to $32.2 million, or $0.41 per share for the same period in the prior year, which included other net charges of $21.9 million.

    Excluding these other net charges, adjusted net income from continuing operations was $77.7 million, or $1.05 per share, in the six months ended June 30, 2014 as compared to $54.1 million, or $0.68 per share, for the same period in the prior year. Year on year results also benefited from strong performance in Surface Treatment and battery applications in Lithium, as well as lower interest expense, which more than offset lower organometallics volumes and a decrease in potash sales of 48%. Additionally, earnings per share benefited from fewer common shares outstanding due to share repurchases.

    As previously announced, on July 15, 2014, Rockwood entered into a merger agreement with Albemarle Corporation (NYSE:ALB) pursuant to which Albemarle will acquire all outstanding shares of Rockwood in a cash and stock transaction valued at approximately $6.2 billion. The transaction is subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015.

    Robert J. Zatta, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, commented, “Our core businesses (Surface Treatment and Lithium battery applications) delivered solid performance in the quarter and in line with our expectations. Surface Treatment continued to post strong top line demand and Adjusted EBITDA results with a 23% margin. In our Lithium segment, battery grade lithium carbonate and hydroxide delivered significant double-digit sales growth, partially mitigating weaker potash and organometallic products sales, posting Adjusted EBITDA margins of 38%.

    “Looking ahead to the second half of this year, the Surface Treatment business remains on track for solid organic growth in sales and Adjusted EBITDA, with Adjusted EBITDA margins in the 22% to 23% range. The Lithium segment, excluding the Talison joint venture, is expected to deliver an increase in sales and Adjusted EBITDA compared to the second half of 2013, with Adjusted EBITDA margins in the range of 36% to 38%.”

    (c) Other includes the results of the wafer reclaim business, as well as costs of operating the Company’s corporate offices. In the second quarter of 2014, the Company reorganized its Metal Sulfides business and began reporting it within the Surface Treatment segment. The financial statements have been reclassified for all periods presented.

    Second Quarter Segment Drivers

    Lithium: Net sales and Adjusted EBITDA decreased 7.2% and 8.6%, respectively.

  • Net sales decreased primarily from lower volumes from organometallic products, driven mostly by butyllithium, and a 26% reduction in potash sales, mainly volumes. This was largely offset by significantly higher volumes for battery applications.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased primarily from lower net sales, partially offset by the results of a 49% ownership interest in the joint venture related to Talison Lithium in May 2014.

    Surface Treatment: Net sales and Adjusted EBITDA increased 10.8% and 16.1%, respectively.

  • Net sales increased primarily due to increased volumes in most markets, particularly driven by higher automotive OEM and automotive components, coil and cold forming, general industry and aerospace applications; the impact of the acquisition of the remaining 50% interest in a previously unconsolidated joint venture in India in 2013; and higher selling prices.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased primarily from higher net sales, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative costs.

    Outlook

    Commenting on the outlook, Mr. Zatta said, “In January 2013, we committed to streamlining our portfolio and a disciplined capital allocation strategy and over the last 18 months, we delivered by selling seven non-core businesses and by acquiring an interest in a strategic lithium resource. On July 15, we announced our proposed merger with Albemarle in a transaction that represents the culmination of Rockwood’s strategic realignment and transformation to drive significant shareholder value. By merging with Albemarle, we are receiving an attractive price for our shareholders with an immediate cash payment, while participating in the creation of a premier specialty chemicals company with global leading market positions with growth prospects and meaningful synergies.

    “Further, with the platform of these complementary global leading businesses, we expect the portfolio combination will deliver outstanding benefits and growth potential for employees, customers and shareholders for many years to come,” added Mr. Zatta.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    This press release includes “non-GAAP financial measures,” such as, a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA, net sales including sales from discontinued operations, free cash flow, net income/diluted earnings per share excluding certain items and net income/diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding certain items. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. All presentations of consolidated Adjusted EBITDA are calculated using the definition set forth in the Company’s former senior secured credit agreement and indenture governing the 4.625% Senior Notes due 2020 as a basis and reflects management’s interpretations thereof. Adjusted EBITDA, which is referred to as “Consolidated EBITDA,” is defined in the former senior secured credit agreement as consolidated earnings which, as defined in the former senior secured credit agreement, equals income (loss) before the deduction of income taxes of Rockwood Specialties Group, Inc. and the Restricted Subsidiaries (as such term is defined in the former senior secured credit agreement), excluding extraordinary items plus certain items including interest expense, depreciation expense, amortization expense, extraordinary losses and non-recurring charges, losses on asset sales, less certain items including extraordinary gains and non-recurring gains, non-cash gains and gains on asset sales.We use Adjusted EBITDA on a consolidated basis to assess our operating performance, to calculate performance-based cash bonuses and determine whether certain performance-based options and restricted stock units vest (as such bonuses, options and restricted stock units are tied to Adjusted EBITDA), and as a liquidity measure. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA to determine compliance with our debt covenants. We also use Adjusted EBITDA on a segment basis as the primary measure used by our chief operating decision maker to evaluate the ongoing performance of our business segments and reporting units. A reconciliation of net income attributable to Rockwood Holdings, Inc. shareholders to Adjusted EBITDA is contained in this press release. We strongly urge you to review the reconciliation. In addition, we discuss sales growth in terms of nominal (actual) and net change (nominal less constant currency impacts).

    Net sales including sales from discontinued operations is not intended to be an alternative for net sales. Management believes that net sales including sales from discontinued operations is meaningful to investors because it provides a view of the Company with respect to its operating results.

    Free cash flow is not intended to be an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Our presentation of free cash flow (including continuing and discontinued operations) is defined as net cash from operating activities, less capital expenditures, net of proceeds from government grants received, and other items (including, among others, the cash impact of adjustments made to Adjusted EBITDA under our former senior secured credit agreement ). Management believes that free cash flow is meaningful to investors because it provides an additional measure of liquidity. However, a limitation of free cash flow is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in cash during the period. An additional limitation associated with the use of this measure is that the term “free cash flow” does not have a standardized meaning. Therefore, other companies may use the same or a similarly named measure but exclude different items or use different computations, which may provide investors a comparable view of our performance in relation to other companies. Management compensates for this limitation by presenting the most comparable GAAP measure, net cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations, with free cash flow within its earnings release and by providing a reconciliation that shows and describes the adjustments made. A reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow is provided in the accompanying tables.

    Neither net income and diluted earnings per share excluding certain items nor net income and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding certain items is intended to be an alternative for net income or diluted earnings per share. Management believes that net income and diluted earnings per share excluding certain items and net income and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations excluding certain items are meaningful to investors because it provides a view of the Company with respect to ongoing operating results.

    Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures are included herein. These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance. Furthermore, these measures may not be consistent with similar measures provided by other companies.
