Huntsman Corporation (HUN ) today reported fourth quarter 2015 results with revenues of $2,332 million and adjusted EBITDA of $240 million.

Peter R. Huntsman, our President and CEO, commented:

"During the fourth quarter this year, EBITDA from our cyclical businesses - which include our MTBE, ethylene and TiO2 products - decreased approximately $78 million compared to the prior year. This overshadowed the real strength of our portfolio which is in our downstream differentiated businesses. Excluding approximately $24 million of foreign currency headwind, the EBITDA from our differentiated businesses improved approximately $50 million compared to the prior year or 27%.

"In 2016, primarily as a result of lower priced oil and a lower global economic growth environment, we expect continued EBITDA pressure on our cyclical businesses. Growth from our differentiated businesses will offset cyclical pressure and inflationary costs such that we expect our 2016 EBITDA to be a similar amount to 2015. Importantly however, we expect our free cash flow generation to improve by $350 million in 2016 through lower capital expenditures, restructuring and maintenance. In 2016 we will continue to pursue actively a separation of our TiO2 business through a spinoff to shareholders or other strategic transaction."

Segment Analysis for 4Q15 Compared to 4Q14

Polyurethanes

The decrease in revenues in our Polyurethanes division for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 was due to lower average selling prices and lower MTBE sales volumes. MDI average selling prices decreased in response to lower raw material costs and the currency exchange impact of a stronger U.S. dollar primarily against the Euro. PO/MTBE average selling prices decreased in-line with lower pricing for high octane gasoline. MDI sales volumes increased due to higher demand as well as competitor outages in the Asian region. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower MTBE contribution margins and the foreign currency exchange impact of a stronger U.S. dollar primarily against the Euro partially offset by higher MDI contribution margins.

Performance Products

The decrease in revenues in our Performance Products division for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 was primarily due to lower average selling prices and lower sales volumes. Average selling prices decreased primarily in response to lower raw material costs and the foreign currency exchange impact of a stronger U.S. dollar primarily against the Euro. Sales volumes decreased primarily due to customer destocking and competitive pressure. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower ethylene contribution margins partially offset by higher contribution margins in our amines business.

Advanced Materials

The decrease in revenues in our Advanced Materials division for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 was due to lower sales volumes and lower average selling prices. Sales volumes decreased primarily due to the de-selection of certain business, customer destocking and competitive pressure. Average selling prices increased on a local currency basis in the Americas primarily due to our focus on higher value markets but this was more than offset by the foreign currency exchange impact of a stronger U.S. dollar primarily against the Euro globally. The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher global contribution margins from lower raw material costs and higher selling prices in the Americas.

Textile Effects

The decrease in revenues in our Textile Effects division for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 was due to lower average selling prices and lower sales volumes. Average selling prices increased on a local currency basis due to certain price increase initiatives but this was more than offset by the foreign currency exchange impact of a stronger U.S. dollar primarily against the Euro. Sales volumes decreased primarily due to the de-selection of lower value business and challenging market conditions. The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to higher contribution margins from lower raw material costs and product mix improvements.

Pigments and Additives

The decrease in revenues in our Pigments and Additives division for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 was due to lower average selling prices and lower sales volumes. Average selling prices decreased primarily as a result of titanium dioxide over supply in the market place and the foreign currency exchange impact of a stronger U.S. dollar primarily against the Euro. Sales volumes decreased primarily as a result of lower end use demand. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower contribution margins for titanium dioxide.

Corporate, LIFO and Other

Adjusted EBITDA from Corporate, LIFO and Other increased by $10 million to a loss of $38 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015 compared to a loss of $48 million for the same period in 2014. The increase in adjusted EBITDA was primarily the result of an increase in income from benzene sales of $7 million.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Outstanding Debt

As of December 31, 2015, we had $1,023 million of combined cash and unused borrowing capacity compared to $1,601 million on December 31, 2014.

On September 29, 2015, our Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $150 million in shares of our common stock. On October 27, 2015 we entered into and funded an accelerated share repurchase agreement to repurchase $100 million of our common stock. The accelerated share repurchase was completed in January 2016 with 8.6 million shares repurchased.

During 2015 we spent $663 million on capital expenditures; we expect to spend approximately $450 million annually on capital expenditures in 2016 and 2017.

Income Taxes

During the three months ended December 31, 2015, we recorded an income tax benefit of $39 million as a result of the combination of effective tax planning, certain unusual tax benefits and the regional mix of income. During the same period we paid $45 million in cash for income taxes.

We expect our 2016 and long term adjusted effective tax rate to be approximately 30%.

Footnotes
(1)  We use EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to measure the operating performance of our business.  We provide adjusted net income because we feel it provides meaningful insight for the investment community into the performance of our business.  We believe that net income (loss) attributable to Huntsman Corporation is the performance measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP") that is most directly comparable to EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income.  Additional information with respect to our use of each of these financial measures follows:
     EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Huntsman Corporation before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA as used herein is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The reconciliation of EBITDA to net income (loss) attributable to Huntsman Corporation is set forth in Table 7 above.
     Adjusted EBITDA is computed by eliminating the following from EBITDA:  (a) acquisition and integration expenses, purchase accounting adjustments; (b) loss (gain) on initial consolidation of subsidiaries; (c) EBITDA from discontinued operations; (d) loss (gain) on disposition of businesses/assets; (e) loss on early extinguishment of debt; (f) extraordinary loss (gain) on the acquisition of a business; (g) certain legal settlements and related expenses; (h) plant incident remediation costs; (i) amortization of pension and postretirement actuarial losses (gains); and (j) restructuring, impairment, plant closing and transition costs (credits).  The reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to EBITDA is set forth in Table 5 above.
     Adjusted net income (loss) is computed by eliminating the after tax impact of the following items from net income (loss) attributable to Huntsman Corporation: (a) acquisition and integration expenses, purchase accounting adjustments; (b) impact of certain foreign tax credit elections; (c) loss (gain) on initial consolidation of subsidiaries; (d) loss (income) from discontinued operations; (e) discount amortization on settlement financing associated with the terminated merger; (f) loss (gain) on disposition of businesses/assets; (g) loss on early extinguishment of debt; (h) extraordinary loss (gain) on the acquisition of a business; (i) certain legal settlements and related expenses; (j) plant incident remediation costs; (k) amortization of pension and postretirement actuarial losses (gains); and (l) restructuring, impairment, plant closing and transition costs (credits).   We do not adjust for changes in tax valuation allowances because we do not believe it provides more meaningful information than is provided under GAAP.  The reconciliation of adjusted net income (loss) to net income (loss) attributable to Huntsman Corporation common stockholders is set forth in Table 5 above.
(2)  Pro forma adjusted as if it had occurred at the beginning of the relevant period to (a) include the October 1, 2014 acquisition of the Performance Additives and Titanium Dioxide businesses of Rockwood Holdings, Inc.; (b) to exclude the related sale of our TR52 product line - used in printing inks - to Henan Billions Chemicals Co., Ltd. in December 2014; and (c) to exclude the allocation of general corporate overhead by Rockwood.
(3)  During the first quarter 2010 we closed our Australian styrenics operations; results from this business are treated as discontinued operations.
