Venator Materials PLC ("Venator") (NYSE: VNTR) today reported fourth quarter 2020 results with revenues of $476 million, net loss attributable to Venator of $58 million, adjusted net loss of $13 million and adjusted EBITDA of $25 million.

Simon Turner, President and CEO of Venator, commented:

"2020 was an unprecedented year with unique challenges and I was very pleased with how well our associates and business responded. We successfully completed our 2019 business improvement program, introduced an additional savings program and delivered our temporary COVID savings. In total, we delivered $57 million of cost savings and closed the year with three consecutive quarters of positive free cash flow. Fourth quarter sales volumes for our TiO2 products continue to improve and have returned to pre-COVID levels within all business units of Performance Additives. Our Performance Additives business demonstrated particular resilience in 2020 as EBITDA improved by $8 million compared to the prior year.

"Although uncertainties regarding the COVID pandemic remain, TiO2 fundamentals are improving. Stronger demand for TiO2 is enabling higher selling prices as we seek to reclaim lost margin. We continue to exercise disciplined management over our cash uses as we seek to improve our long-term free cash flow profile. I am optimistic about Venator's future prospects."

Segment Analysis for 4Q20 Compared to 4Q19

Titanium Dioxide
The Titanium Dioxide segment generated revenues of $348 million in the three months ended December 31, 2020, a decrease of $6 million, or 2%, compared to the same period in 2019. The decline was primarily due to a 3% decrease in the average TiO2 selling price and a 2% decrease in sales volumes partially offset by a 3% favorable impact of foreign currency translation, while mix and other was flat. Volumes were lower as a result of the hurricanes in North America impacting sales from our joint venture facility in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Titanium Dioxide segment was $25 million in the three months ended December 31, 2020, a decrease of $5 million compared to the same period in 2019. The decline was primarily a result of higher ore costs and the impact of a non-recurring benefit in 2019 due to a change in plant utilization rates. This was partially offset by benefits from our business improvement programs and COVID response program.

Performance Additives
The Performance Additives segment generated revenues of $128 million in the three months ended December 31, 2020, an increase of $18 million, or 16%, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily due to a 7% increase in sales volumes, a 5% increase in average selling prices, a 3% favorable impact from foreign currency translation and a 1% favorable impact in mix and other. The increase in sales volumes was primarily a result of improved demand for products used in automotive, coatings, plastics and construction markets.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Performance Additives segment was $15 million in the three months ended December 31, 2020, an increase of $11 million compared to the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily due to increased sales and benefits from our business improvement programs.

Corporate and Other
Corporate and other represents expenses which are not allocated to our segments. Losses from Corporate and other were $15 million, or $4 million higher for the three months ended December 31, 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. This is due to timing of employee benefit accruals. We expect Corporate and other to be approximately $45 million for the full year 2021.

Tax Items
We recorded an income tax expense of $9 million and $12 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, respectively, compared to an income tax expense of $150 million and $150 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, respectively. $157 million of tax expense was recognized in the fourth quarter of 2019 in connection with recognizing a full valuation allowance against certain net deferred tax assets. Our adjusted effective tax rate was unchanged at 35% for the full year 2020 and full year 2019.

Our income taxes are significantly affected by the mix of income and losses in tax jurisdictions and valuation allowances in certain jurisdictions in which we operate. In 2021, we expect to see an adjusted effective tax rate of approximately 35%. We continue to expect that our adjusted long-term effective tax rate will be approximately 15% to 20%.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of December 31, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents of $220 million compared with $55 million as of December 31, 2019. In addition, we have in place an undrawn asset based revolving credit facility available for our working capital needs and general corporate purposes with an availability of $251 million as of December 31, 2020. As of December 31, 2020, net debt was $737 million compared to $695 million as of December 31, 2019.

Capital expenditures excluding cash paid for Pori rebuild totaled $13 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and $67 million in the full year 2020. We expect capital expenditures in 2021 to total approximately $75 - 85 million.

Our management uses adjusted EBITDA to assess financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/loss before interest income/expense, net, income tax expense/benefit, depreciation and amortization, and net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, as well as eliminating the following adjustments: (a) business acquisition and integration expense/credits; (b) separation gain/expense; (c) loss/gain on disposition of businesses/assets; (d) certain legal expenses/settlements; (e) amortization of pension and postretirement actuarial losses/gains; (f) net plant incident costs/credits; and (g) restructuring, impairment, and plant closing and transition costs/credits. We believe that net income is the performance measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP that is most directly comparable to adjusted EBITDA.




We believe adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in assessing our ongoing financial performance and provides improved comparability between periods through the exclusion of certain items that management believes are not indicative of our operational profitability and that may obscure underlying business results and trends. However, this measure should not be considered in isolation or viewed as a substitute for net income or other measures of performance determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Moreover, adjusted EBITDA as used herein is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the methods of calculation. Our management believes this measure is useful to compare general operating performance from period to period and to make certain related management decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by securities analysts, lenders and others in their evaluation of different companies because it excludes certain items that can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. For example, interest expense can be highly dependent on a company's capital structure, debt levels and credit ratings. Therefore, the impact of interest expense on earnings can vary significantly among companies. In addition, the tax positions of companies can vary because of their differing abilities to take advantage of tax benefits and because of the tax policies of the various jurisdictions in which they operate. As a result, effective tax rates and tax expense can vary considerably among companies. Finally, companies employ productive assets of different ages and utilize different methods of acquiring and depreciating such assets. This can result in considerable variability in the relative costs of productive assets and the depreciation and amortization expense among companies.




Nevertheless, our management recognizes that there are limitations associated with the use of adjusted EBITDA in the evaluation of us as compared to net income. Our management compensates for the limitations of using adjusted EBITDA by using this measure to supplement U.S. GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business rather than U.S. GAAP results alone.




In addition to the limitations noted above, adjusted EBITDA excludes items that may be recurring in nature and should not be disregarded in the evaluation of performance. However, we believe it is useful to exclude such items to provide a supplemental analysis of current results and trends compared to other periods because certain excluded items can vary significantly depending on specific underlying transactions or events, and the variability of such items may not relate specifically to ongoing operating results or trends and certain excluded items, while potentially recurring in future periods, may not be indicative of future results.




Adjusted net income/loss attributable to Venator Materials PLC ordinary shareholders is computed by eliminating the after-tax amounts related to the following from net income/loss attributable to Venator Materials PLC ordinary shareholders: (a) business acquisition and integration expenses/ credits; (b) separation gain/ expense; (c) loss/gain on disposition of businesses/assets; (d) certain legal expenses/ settlements; (e) amortization of pension and postretirement actuarial losses/gains; (f) net plant incident costs/credits; and (g) restructuring, impairment, and plant closing and transition costs/credits. Basic adjusted net earnings per share excludes dilution and is computed by dividing adjusted net income by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. Adjusted diluted net earnings per share reflects all potential dilutive ordinary shares outstanding during the period increased by the number of additional shares that would have been outstanding as dilutive securities.




Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net earnings (loss) per share amounts are presented solely as supplemental information. These measures exclude similar noncash items as Adjusted EBITDA in order to assist our investors in comparing our performance from period to period and as such, bear similar risks as Adjusted EBITDA as documented above. For that reason, adjusted net income and the related per share amounts, should not be considered in isolation and should be considered only to supplement analysis of U.S. GAAP results.

Prior to the second quarter of 2019, the income tax impacts, if any, of each adjusting item represented a ratable allocation of the total difference between the unadjusted tax expense and the total adjusted tax expense, computed without consideration of any adjusting items using a with and without approach.




Beginning in the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2019, income tax expense is adjusted by the amount of additional tax expense or benefit that we would accrue if we used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results in the calculation of our tax liability, taking into consideration our tax structure. We use a normalized effective tax rate of 35%, which reflects the weighted average tax rate applicable under the various jurisdictions in which we operate. This non-GAAP tax rate eliminates the effects of non-recurring and period specific items which are often attributable to restructuring and acquisition decisions and can vary in size and frequency. This rate is subject to change over time for various reasons, including changes in the geographic business mix, valuation allowances, and changes in statutory tax rates.




We eliminate the effect of significant changes to income tax valuation allowances from our presentation of adjusted net income to allow investors to better compare our ongoing financial performance from period to period. We do not adjust for insignificant changes in tax valuation allowances because we do not believe it provides more meaningful information than is provided under GAAP. We believe that our revised approach enables a clearer understanding of the long term impact of our tax structure on post tax earnings.

Management internally uses a free cash flow measure: (a) to evaluate the Company's liquidity, (b) to evaluate strategic investments, (c) to evaluate the Company's ability to incur and service debt. Free cash flow is not a defined term under U.S. GAAP, and it should not be inferred that the entire free cash flow amount is available for discretionary expenditures. The Company defines free cash flow as cash flows provided by (used in) operating activities from continuing operations and used in investing activities. Free cash flow is typically derived directly from the Company's consolidated statement of cash flows; however, it may be adjusted for items that affect comparability between periods. Free cash flow is presented as supplemental information.
