    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 first quarter 2020 and its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    "Our Q1 results were consistent with our expectations thanks, in part, to improved operating performance across our network.? At the same time, we did begin to feel the early impact of COVID-19 in some areas of the business," said Chemours President and CEO Mark Vergnano. "We are laser focused on the safety of our employees and the support of our customers. I am proud to report that our quick implementation of health screening procedures and procurement of additional protective equipment has allowed us to operate our manufacturing facilities with minimal coronavirus-related disruption. In addition, we have enacted a broad set of initiatives to reduce costs that will help improve our financial flexibility and enable us to promptly respond to changing conditions in the near term."

    First quarter 2020 net sales were $1.3 billion in comparison to $1.4 billion in the prior-year first quarter. Results were driven primarily by higher volume in Titanium Technologies, more than offset by lower volume in Fluoroproducts and lower global average prices across all segments. First?quarter net income was $100 million, or $0.61 per diluted share. Adjusted Net Income was $118 million, with Adjusted EPS of $0.71 up 8% and 13% respectively from the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter 2020 was $257 million in comparison to $262 million in the previous year first quarter, a result of lower F-Gas quota sales and prices, partially offset by reduced costs year-over-year.

    Fluoroproducts
    In the first quarter 2020, Fluoroproducts segment net sales were $600 million in comparison to $687 million in the prior-year. Softer demand was primarily driven by the impact of COVID-19 in Asia Pacific and several end markets globally, resulting in lower volumes versus last year's first quarter. Average price was down 4 percent on a year-over-year basis. Segment Adjusted EBITDA of $140 million decreased 12 percent versus the prior-year quarter, negatively impacted by limited F-gas quota sales due to illegal imports of HFC refrigerants into the EU. This was partially offset by the improved efficiency from the Corpus Christi Opteon? facility ramp up, lower costs due to improved operational execution and cost reductions across the business.? Margins improved sequentially from 19% in the fourth quarter 2019 to 23% in the first quarter 2020.

    Chemical Solutions
    Chemical Solutions segment net sales were $92 million, a 31 percent decrease versus the prior-year first quarter. Volumes were lower year-over-year primarily driven by the Methylamines and Methylamides business divestiture in the fourth quarter 2019. Lower average prices were driven by lower raw material price pass-throughs and regional customer mix. Adjusted EBITDA of $15 million was flat in comparison to the prior-year quarter, reflecting a 500 bps improvement in margins to 16% from 11% in the prior-year.

    Titanium Technologies
    Titanium Technologies segment net sales in the first quarter were $613 million, up 10% in comparison to the prior-year quarter. Volumes improved 19% on year-over-year basis and 2% on a sequential basis. The higher volume of Ti-Pure? titanium dioxide was driven by a combination of steady demand and expected market share regain in plastics. Global average selling prices declined by 2% sequentially and 8% year-over-year. Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased by 10% to $138 million, in comparison to $126 million in last year's first quarter. Margins improved sequentially from 19% in the fourth quarter 2019 to 23% in the first quarter 2020 reflecting improved fixed cost absorption.

    Corporate and Other
    Corporate and Other in the first quarter 2020 represented a $36 million offset to Adjusted EBITDA, versus a $38 million offset in the prior-year quarter. This decrease was primarily attributable to lower external spend.

    The company realized an Adjusted Effective Tax Rate of approximately 5 percent for the quarter.?

    Liquidity
    As of March 31, 2020, consolidated gross debt was $4.1 billion. Debt, net of $714 million cash, was $3.4 billion, resulting in a net leverage ratio of approximately 3.3 times on a trailing twelve-month Adjusted EBITDA basis.? Total liquidity was $1.4 billion, comprised of $714 million of cash and $699 million of revolver capacity.?

    Cash provided by operating activities for the first quarter of 2020 was $44 million, versus $(44) million in the prior-year quarter. Capital expenditures for the first quarter 2020 were $106 million, versus $133 million in last year's first quarter. Free Cash Flow for the first quarter 2020 was a $62 million outflow versus the prior-year quarter of a $177 million outflow.

    As previously announced, the company drew down $300 million of the revolving credit facility on April 8, 2020 as a precautionary action. The repayment of these borrowings is expected to occur when the uncertainty in the global markets subsides.

    Outlook
    Vergnano said: "In light of the uncertainty created by this pandemic, we are withdrawing our full-year 2020 guidance. However, Chemours is quickly taking steps to best weather the current conditions, including protocols to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees as COVID-19 runs its course.?At the same time, we have taken decisive action to reduce FY 2020 costs by reducing overhead, discretionary spend, and CAPEX.?The entire Chemours team is fully engaged to serve our customers, render aid in our communities around the world, and assist in the fight against COVID-19."

    As previously announced, Chemours will hold a conference call and webcast on Wednesday, May 6, 2020 at 8:30 AM EDT.

    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
    This press release contains forward-looking statements, within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements provide current expectations of future events based on certain assumptions and include any statement that does not directly relate to a historical or current fact. The words "believe," "expect," "will," "anticipate," "plan," "estimate," "target," "project" and similar expressions, among others, generally identify "forward-looking statements," which speak only as of the date such statements were made. These forward-looking statements may address, among other things, the outcome or resolution of any pending or future environmental liabilities, the commencement, outcome or resolution of any regulatory inquiry, investigation or proceeding, the initiation, outcome or settlement of any litigation, changes in environmental regulations in the U.S. or other jurisdictions that affect demand for or adoption of our products, anticipated future operating and financial performance, business plans, prospects, targets, goals and commitments, capital investments and projects, plans for dividends or share repurchases, sufficiency or longevity of intellectual property protection, cost reductions or savings targets, plans to increase profitability and growth, our ability to make acquisitions, integrate acquired businesses or assets into our operations, and achieve anticipated synergies or cost savings, all of which are subject to substantial risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such statements. 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. Forward-looking statements also involve risks and uncertainties that are beyond Chemours' control. In addition, the current COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the national and global economy and commodity and financial markets. The full extent and impact of the pandemic is unknown and to date has included extreme volatility in financial and commodity markets, a significant slowdown in economic activity, and increased predictions of a global recession. The public and private sector response has led to significant restrictions on travel, temporary business closures, quarantines, stock market volatility, and a general reduction in consumer and commercial activity globally. Matters outside our control have affected our business and operations and may or may continue to limit travel of employees to our business units domestically and internationally, adversely affect the health and welfare of our personnel, significantly reduce the demand for our products, hinder our ability to provide goods and services to customers, cause disruptions in our supply chains, adversely affect our business partners or cause other unpredictable events. Additionally, there may be other risks and uncertainties that Chemours is unable to identify at this time or that Chemours does not currently expect to have a material impact on its business. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include the risks, uncertainties and other factors discussed in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. Chemours assumes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statement for any reason, except as required by law.

    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.

    In periods where the Company incurs a net loss, the impact of potentially dilutive securities is excluded from the calculation of EPS under U.S. GAAP, as their inclusion would have an anti-dilutive effect. As such, with respect to the U.S. GAAP measure of diluted EPS, the impact of potentially dilutive securities is excluded from our calculation for the three months ended December 31, 2019. With respect to the non-GAAP measure of adjusted diluted EPS, the impact of potentially dilutive securities is included in our calculation for the three months ended December 31, 2019, as Adjusted Net Income was in a net income position.
