CHEMTURA CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

 

1)                                      NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Nature of Operations

 

Chemtura Corporation together with our consolidated subsidiaries, is dedicated to delivering innovative, application-focused specialty chemical and consumer product offerings.  Our corporate headquarters is located at 1818 Market Street, Suite 3700, Philadelphia, PA 19103.  Our principal executive offices are located at 1818 Market Street, Suite 3700, Philadelphia, PA 19103 and at 199 Benson Road, Middlebury, CT 06749.  We operate in a wide variety of end-use industries including agriculture, automotive, construction, electronics, lubricants, packaging, plastics for durable and non-durable goods, pool and spa chemicals, and transportation.

 

When we use the terms “Corporation,” “Company,” “Chemtura,” “Registrant,” “We,” “Us” and “Our,” unless otherwise indicated or the context otherwise requires, we are referring to Chemtura Corporation and our consolidated subsidiaries.

 

We are the successor to Crompton & Knowles Corporation (“Crompton & Knowles”), which was incorporated in Massachusetts in 1900 and engaged in the manufacture and sale of specialty chemicals beginning in 1954.  Crompton & Knowles traces its roots to the Crompton Loom Works incorporated in the 1840s.  We expanded the specialty chemical business through acquisitions in the United States and Europe, including the 1996 acquisition of Uniroyal Chemical Company, Inc. (“Uniroyal”), the 1999 merger with Witco Corporation (“Witco”) and the 2005 acquisition of Great Lakes Chemical Corporation (“Great Lakes”).

 

The information in the foregoing Consolidated Financial Statements for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 is unaudited but reflects all adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations for the interim periods presented.  All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature, except as otherwise disclosed in the accompanying notes to our Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of Chemtura and our wholly-owned and majority-owned subsidiaries that we control.  Other affiliates in which we have a 20% to 50% ownership interest or a non-controlling majority interest are accounted for in accordance with the equity method.  Other investments in which we have less than 20% ownership are recorded at cost.  All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Our Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), which require us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year’s presentation of discontinued operations (see Note 2 - Acquisitions and Divestitures).  These changes did not have a material impact on previously reported results of operations, cash flows or financial position.

 

We operated as a debtor-in-possession (“DIP”) under the protection of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Bankruptcy Court”) from March 18, 2009 (the “Petition Date”) through November 10, 2010 (the “Effective Date”).  From the Petition Date through the Effective Date, our Consolidated Financial Statements were prepared in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Section 852-10-45, Reorganizations — Other Presentation Matters (“ASC 852-10-45”) which requires that financial statements, for periods during the pendency of our voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the “Chapter 11”) filings, distinguish transactions and events that are directly associated with the reorganization from the ongoing operations of the business.  Accordingly, certain income, expenses, realized gains and losses and expenses for losses that are realized or incurred in the Chapter 11 cases are recorded in Reorganization items, net in our Consolidated Statements of Operations.  As of March 31, 2013, the Bankruptcy Court has entered orders granting final decrees closing all of the Debtors’ Chapter 11 cases except the Chapter 11 case of Chemtura Corporation.

Table of Contents

 

The interim Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2012 (the “2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K”).  The consolidated results of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full year.

 

Accounting Policies and Other Items

 

Cash and cash equivalents include bank term deposits with original maturities of three months or less.

 

Included in accounts receivable are allowances for doubtful accounts of $13 million as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

 

During the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, we made interest payments of approximately $25 million and $23 million, respectively.  During the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, we made payments for income taxes (net of refunds) of $3 million and $12 million, respectively.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2013, the FASB issued ASU 2013-02, Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2013-02”).  The guidance in ASU 2013-02 requires an organization to present the effects on the line items of net income of significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income, but only if the item reclassified is required under GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period.  The guidance in ASU 2013-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2012.  The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on our results of operations or financial position because it only provides for enhanced disclosure requirements.  Accordingly, we have included enhanced footnote disclosure for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 (see Note 9 - Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss).

 

2 )                                      ACQUISITIONS AND DIVESTITURES

 

Acquisitions

 

On September 26, 2012, we announced that we entered into a Business Transfer Agreement (“BTA”) with Solaris ChemTech Industries Limited (“Solaris ChemTech”), an Indian Company, and Avantha Holdings Limited, an Indian Company and the parent company of Solaris ChemTech (collectively, “Solaris”).  As provided in the BTA, we have agreed to purchase from Solaris certain assets used in the manufacture and distribution of bromine and bromine chemicals for cash consideration of $142 million and the assumption of certain liabilities.  The purchase price is subject to a post-closing net working capital adjustment.  The acquisition is subject to usual and customary closing conditions and is expected to close as soon as practicable.

 

Divestitures

 

Antioxidant Divestiture

 

On November 9, 2012, we entered into an asset purchase agreement with SK Blue Holdings, Ltd. (“SK”), an affiliate of SK Capital Partners III, L.P. to sell substantially all the assets of our antioxidant and UV stabilizers (the “Antioxidant”) business for $200 million, $190 million to be paid in cash at closing plus a $10 million seller note.  The assets to be sold include, among others, trade receivables, inventory, our equity interest in two joint ventures, certain dedicated plants in the U.S., France and Germany, and certain dedicated assets in shared facilities and SK agreed to assume certain liabilities (the “Antioxidant Sale”).  We will retain assets that are shared with our other business components that exist in certain locations globally and utilize those assets under supply agreements with SK.

 

On January 25, 2013, we entered into an Amended and Restated Asset Purchase and Contribution Agreement with SK and Addivant USA Holdings Corp. (“Addivant”) whereby SK and Addivant agreed, in addition to purchasing substantially all the assets of our Antioxidant business, to assume certain additional pension and environmental liabilities totaling approximately $93 million.  The agreement provides for the actuarial valuation of net pension liabilities to be assumed to be updated shortly before the closing of the transaction.  To the extent the updated values are a reduction of the net pension liability, the difference will be applied to increase, by an equal amount, the value of the seller note to be issued at closing.  To the extent the updated values are an increase in the net pension liability, the increase will be applied in equal amount first to reduce the value of the seller note and then if the seller note is extinguished, as a reduction to the cash consideration.  Based on the January 25, 2013 terms, the consideration payable at closing of $107 million will consist of $97 million in cash, $9 million in preferred stock to

Table of Contents

 

be issued by Addivant and a seller note of $1 million subject to customary closing conditions and adjustments for working capital changes.  The transaction closed on April 30, 2013.  We anticipate recording a non-cash loss during the second quarter of 2013 primarily related to the release of currency translation adjustments and accumulated other comprehensive loss (“AOCL”) related to the transfer of the pension obligations, among other items.

 

As a result of entering into this transaction, we determined that discontinued operations treatment applied.  The assets and liabilities included in the Antioxidant Sale have been presented as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations and earnings and direct costs associated with the Antioxidant business have been presented as loss from discontinued operations, net of tax for the current and comparative periods.  All applicable disclosures included in the accompanying footnotes have been updated to reflect the Antioxidant business as a discontinued operation.

 

The following is a summary of our assets and liabilities of discontinued operations related to the Antioxidant business as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

A portion of certain functional and other expenses that are managed company-wide that are allocated to the Antioxidant business do not transfer directly under the Antioxidant Sale.  As such, in historic periods these costs are shown as part of continuing operations in the corporate segment and not included under loss from discontinued operations, net of tax.  These costs approximate $4 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012.

 

Tetrabrom Joint Venture Divestiture

 

On November 28, 2011, we sold our 50% interest in Tetrabrom Technologies Ltd. for net consideration of $38 million. The consideration will be paid over a three year period.  The first and second payments, net of tax were paid in April 2012 and April 2013.  A pre-tax gain of $27 million was recorded on the sale in the fourth quarter of 2011.

3 )                                      RESTRUCTURING AND ASSET IMPAIRMENT ACTIVITIES

 

Restructuring

 

On February 22, 2013, our Board of Directors (the “Board”) approved a restructuring plan providing for, among other things, actions to reduce stranded costs related to ongoing strategic initiatives.  This plan is expected to preserve pre-divestiture operating margins following our portfolio changes.  The total cost of the restructuring plan is estimated to be between $35 million and $45 million, primarily for severance and related costs, accelerated depreciation of property, plant and equipment, and asset retirement obligations.  Non-cash charges are estimated to be between $9 million and $11 million with a net cash cost of between $26 million and $34 million.  We recorded a pre-tax charge of $14 million in the first quarter of 2013 which included $11 million for severance and related costs and $3 million related to professional fees, and expect all but approximately $4 million to $8 million to be incurred throughout 2013.  The remainder of the costs being related to decommissioning are expected to be expensed as incurred over a number of years.

 

On April 30, 2012, our Board approved a restructuring plan providing for, among other things, the closure of our Antioxidant business manufacturing facility in Pedrengo, Italy.  The Board also approved actions to improve the operating effectiveness of certain global corporate functions.  This plan is intended to achieve significant gains in efficiency and costs.  The total cost of the restructuring plan was estimated to be approximately $40 million of which approximately $6 million will consist of non-cash charges.

 

During 2012, we recorded pre-tax charges of $33 million which included $4 million for accelerated depreciation of property, plant and equipment included in depreciation and amortization, $2 million for accelerated asset retirement obligations included in cost of goods sold, $12 million for severance and professional fees related to corporate initiatives, $5 million for severance and other obligations related to the Pedrengo closure and $10 million reflecting the write-off of a receivable for which collection is no longer probable as a result of these restructuring actions.  We recorded an additional pre-tax charge of $1 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2013, primarily for accelerated depreciation related to the Pedrengo closure.  All charges related to the Pedrengo closure have been included in loss from discontinued operations, net of tax, due to the pending sale of our Antioxidants business.  The Pedrengo plant ceased operations March 31, 2013 and asset retirement work has begun.  We will retain this property after the sale of the Antioxidants business is complete and anticipate selling it after all retirement and remediation work is completed.

 

A summary of the changes in the liabilities established for restructuring programs is as follows:

Asset Impairment Review

 

During the first quarter of 2013, we completed an assessment of an initiative to monetize the assets of one of our businesses.  As of March 31, 2013, we considered it more-likely-than-not that the initiative would become effective during 2013.  In performing the impairment analysis, we probability weighted the possible outcomes of the initiative as of March 31, 2013.  Based on this analysis, the expected undiscounted cash flows were sufficient to recover the carrying values of assets of the business component to which the initiative relates.  As a result, we concluded that no impairment existed at March 31, 2013.  However, changes in the underlying details or probability of occurrence of the initiative could materially impact the results of our analysis in future quarters.

6)                                      GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Our goodwill balance was $173 million at March 31, 2013 and $177 million at December 31, 2012. The goodwill is allocated to the Industrial Performance Products segment.  The goodwill balance at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 reflected accumulated impairments of $90 million.

 

We have elected to perform our annual goodwill impairment procedures for all of our reporting units in accordance with ASC Subtopic 350-20,  Intangibles — Goodwill and Other - Goodwill (“ASC 350-20”) as of July 31, or sooner, if events occur or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying value.  We estimate the fair value of our reporting units utilizing income and market approaches through the application of discounted cash flow and market comparable methods (Level 3 inputs as described in Note 14— Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements).  The assessment is required to be performed in two steps: step one to test for a potential impairment of goodwill and, if potential impairments are identified, step two to measure the impairment loss through a full fair valuing of the assets and liabilities of the reporting unit utilizing the acquisition method of accounting.  We concluded that no goodwill impairment existed in any of our reporting units based on the annual review as of July 31, 2012.

 

We continually monitor and evaluate business and competitive conditions that affect our operations and reflects the impact of these factors in our financial projections.  If permanent or sustained changes in business or competitive conditions occur, they can lead to revised projections that could potentially give rise to impairment charges.

Financing Facilities

 

On August 27, 2010, we completed a private placement offering under Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Rule 144A of $455 million aggregate principal amount of 7.875% senior notes due 2018 (the “Senior Notes”) at an issue price of 99.269% in reliance on an exemption pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.  We also entered into a senior secured term facility credit agreement due 2016 (the “Term Loan”) with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, and other lenders party thereto for an aggregate principal amount of $295 million with an original issue discount of 1%.  The Term Loan permits us to increase the size of the facility by up to $125 million.  On October 31, 2012, we exercised the accordion feature of our Term Loan and borrowed the additional $125 million for the purpose of funding potential investment opportunities and for general corporate purposes.  Accordingly, we recognized a $1 million charge for the year ended December 31, 2012 for loss on early extinguishment of debt resulting from the write-off of deferred financing costs and miscellaneous fees.  An additional $1 million in arranger fees were written-off to interest expense for the year end December 31, 2012.  On November 10, 2010, we entered into a five-year senior secured revolving credit facility available through 2015 (the “ABL Facility”) with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and the other lenders party thereto for an amount up to $275 million, subject to availability under a borrowing base (with a $125 million letter of credit sub-facility).  The ABL Facility permits us to increase the size of the facility by up to $125 million subject to obtaining lender commitments to provide such increase.

 

At March 31, 2013, we had no borrowings under the ABL Facility and $15 million of outstanding letters of credit (primarily related to insurance obligations, environmental obligations and banking credit facilities) which utilizes available capacity under the facility.  At December 31, 2012, we had no borrowings under the ABL Facility, but we had $14 million of outstanding letters of credit.  At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, we had approximately $260 million and $199 million, respectively of undrawn availability under the ABL Facility.

Table of Contents

 

These facilities contain covenants that limit, among other things, our ability to enter into certain transactions, such as creating liens, incurring additional indebtedness or repaying certain indebtedness, making investments, paying dividends, and entering into acquisitions, dispositions and joint ventures.  The Term Loan requires that we meet certain quarterly financial maintenance covenants including a maximum Secured Leverage Ratio (as defined in the agreement) of 2.5:1.0 and a minimum Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio (as defined in the agreement) of 3.0:1.0.  The ABL Facility contains a springing financial covenant requiring a minimum trailing 12-month fixed charge coverage ratio (as defined in the agreement) of 1.1 to 1.0 at all times during any period from the date when the amount available for borrowings under the ABL Facility falls below the greater of (i) $34 million and (ii) 12.5% of the aggregate commitments until such date such available amount has been equal to or greater than the greater of (i) $34 million and (ii) 12.5% of the aggregate commitments for 45 consecutive days.  As of March 31, 2013, we were in compliance with the covenant requirements of these financing facilities.

 

On March 29, 2013, we entered into a promissory note in the principal sum of $7 million with a term of six years bearing interest at a rate of 5.29% per annum to finance the cost of certain information technology software licenses.  The principal of note is to be repaid in equal monthly installments over its term.

 

In December 2012, we entered into a CNY 250 million (approximately $40 million) 5 year secured credit facility available through December 2017 (the “China Bank Facility”) with Agricultural Bank of China, Nantong Branch (“ABC Bank”).  The China Bank Facility will be used for funding construction of our manufacturing facility in Nantong, China.  The China Bank Facility is secured by land, property and machinery of our subsidiary Chemtura Advanced Materials (Nantong) Co., Ltd.  The loans under the China Bank Facility bear interest at a rate determined from time to time by ABC Bank base on the prevailing People Bank of China Lending Rate.  At March 31, 2013, we had borrowings of $5 million under the China Bank Facility.  Repayments of principal will be made in semi-annual installments from December 2014 through December 2017.

 

Accounts Receivable Financing Facility

 

On October 26, 2011, certain of our European subsidiaries (the “Sellers”) entered into a trade receivables financing facility (the “A/R Financing Facility”) with GE FactoFrance SAS as purchaser (the “Purchaser”).  Pursuant to the A/R Financing Facility, and subject to certain conditions stated therein, the Purchaser has agreed to purchase from the Sellers, on a revolving basis, certain trade receivables up to a maximum amount outstanding at any time of €68 million (approximately $87 million).  The monthly financing fee on the drawn portion of the A/R Financing Facility is the applicable Base Rate plus 1.50%.  In addition, the A/R Financing Facility is subject to a minimum commission on the annual volume of transferred receivables.  We had no outstanding advances under the A/R Financing Facility for the period ending December 31, 2012.  We utilized this facility during 2012, however, in December 2012 we agreed with the Purchaser to suspend the facility in light of internal plans to change which of our European entities invoice sales to customers.

 

8)            INCOME TAXES

 

We reported an income tax expense of $8 million and an income tax benefit of $1 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  We have increased our U.S. net operating loss and associated valuation allowance for the first quarter of 2013 U.S. loss.  We have offset our prior period year-to-date U.S. income with net operating loss carryforwards and reduced the associated valuation allowance.  We will continue to adjust our tax provision through the establishment or reduction of non-cash valuation allowances until we determine that it is more-likely than not that the net deferred tax assets associated with our U.S. operations will be utilized.

 

We have net liabilities related to unrecognized tax benefits of $39 million and $41 million at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively. The decrease is primarily due to currency fluctuation.

 

We recognize interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense.  Accrued interest and penalties are included within the related liability captions in our Consolidated Balance Sheet.

 

We believe it is reasonably possible that our unrecognized tax benefits may decrease by approximately $3 million within the next year.  This reduction may occur due to the expiration of the statute of limitations or conclusion of examinations by tax authorities.  We further expect that the amount of unrecognized tax benefits will continue to change as a result of ongoing operations, the outcomes of audits and the expiration of the statue of limitations.  This change is not expected to have a significant impact on our financial condition.

10)          EARNINGS PER COMMON SHARE

 

The computation of basic earnings per common share is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding.  The computation of diluted earnings per common share is based on the weighted average number of common and common share equivalents outstanding.  The computation of diluted earnings per common share equals the basic earnings per common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, since the common stock equivalents were anti-dilutive as a result of a loss from continuing operations.  Common stock equivalents amounted to 1.4 million shares for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

 

The following is a reconciliation of the shares used in the computation of earnings per share:

On October 18, 2011, we announced that our Board had authorized us to repurchase up to $50 million of our common stock over the next twelve months.  On July 31, 2012, our Board authorized an increase in our share repurchase program from $50 million to up to $100 million and extended the program through November 2013. The shares are expected to be repurchased from time to time through open market purchases.  The program, which does not obligate us to repurchase any particular amount of common stock, may be modified or suspended at any time at the Board’s discretion.  The manner, price, number and

timing of such repurchases, if any, will be subject to a variety of factors, including market conditions and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  There were no purchases during the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  As of March 31, 2013, we had total re-purchases of 3.4 million shares for a cost of $41 million under this program.

 

11)          STOCK INCENTIVE PLANS

 

In 2010, we adopted the Chemtura Corporation 2010 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “2010 LTIP”), which was approved by the Bankruptcy Court and became effective upon our emergence from Chapter 11.  The 2010 LTIP provides for grants of nonqualified stock options (“NQOs”), incentive stock options (“ISOs”), stock appreciation rights, dividend equivalent rights, stock units, bonus stock, performance awards, share awards, restricted stock, time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and performance-based RSUs.  The 2010 LTIP provides for the issuance of a maximum of 11 million shares.  NQOs and ISOs may be granted under the 2010 LTIP at prices equal to the fair market value of the underlying common shares on the date of the grant.  All outstanding stock options will expire not more than ten years from the date of the grant.  All grants of NQOs have an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the underlying common stock at the date of grant.

 

Stock-based compensation expense was $5 million and $7 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  Stock-based compensation expense was primarily reported in SG&A.

 

Stock Option Plans

 

In March 2013, the compensation committee of our Board (the “Compensation Committee”) approved the grant of 0.4 million NQOs under the 2013 long-term incentive awards (the “2013 Awards”).  These options vest ratably over a three-year period.

 

In March 2012, the Compensation Committee approved the grant of 0.8 million NQOs under the 2012 long-term incentive awards (the “2012 Awards”).  These options vest ratably over a three-year period.

 

We use the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to determine the fair value of NQOs.  We have elected to recognize compensation cost for awards of NQOs equally over the requisite service period for each separately vesting tranche, as if multiple awards were granted.  Using this method, the weighted average per share fair value of stock options granted during the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 was $9.92 and $8.14, respectively.

 

Total remaining unrecognized compensation expense associated with unvested NQOs at March 31, 2013 was $8 million, which will be recognized over the weighted average period of approximately 2 years.

 

Restricted Stock Units and Performance Shares

 

In March 2013, the Compensation Committee approved the grant of 0.2 million time-based RSUs under the 2013 Awards.  These RSUs vest ratably over a three-year period.

 

In March 2013, the Compensation Committee approved the grant of 0.2 million performance shares under the 2013 Awards.  The share grant is subject to a performance multiplier of up to 2 times the targeted award.  The performance measurement period is the three calendar year period ending December 31, 2015, the performance share metric used will be our relative total shareholder return against the companies comprising the Russell 3000 Index, and the performance shares will be settled on March 1, 2016.  We used the Monte-Carlo simulation model to determine the fair value of the performance shares.  Using this method, the average per share fair value of these awards was $27.27.

 

In March 2012, the Compensation Committee approved the grant of 0.6 million time-based RSUs under the 2012 Awards.  These RSUs vest ratably over a three-year period.

 

In March 2012, the Compensation Committee approved the grant of 0.3 million performance shares under the 2012 Awards.  The share grant is subject to a performance multiplier of up to 2 times the targeted award.  The performance measurement period is the three calendar year period ending December 31, 2014, the performance share metric used will be our relative total shareholder return against the companies comprising the Russell 3000 Index, and the performance shares will be settled on March 1, 2015.  We used the Monte-Carlo simulation model to determine the fair value of the performance shares.  Using this method, the average per share fair value of these awards was $25.38.

 

Total remaining unrecognized compensation expense associated with unvested time-based RSUs and performance shares at March 31, 2013 was $18 million, which will be recognized over the weighted average period of approximately 2 years.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

 

In May 2012, our shareholders approved the Chemtura Corporation 2012 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “ESPP”).  This plan permits eligible employees to annually elect to have up to 10% of their compensation withheld and applied to the purchase of shares of Chemtura’s common stock.  Purchases are made at the end of quarterly offering periods and are based on the lower of the fair market value of the shares on the first and last trading days during the offering period.  The first offering period was for the calendar quarter ending September 30, 2012.  A total of one million shares are authorized to be issued under the ESPP, including up to 0.1 million shares per offering period and 0.3 million shares per plan year.  As of March 31, 2013, approximately 0.9 million shares are available for future issuance under this plan.

We contributed $1 million to our U.S. non-qualified pension plans and $1 million to our international pension plans for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  Contributions to post-retirement health care plans for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $3 million.

 

On November 18, 2009, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order (the “2009 OPEB Order”) approving, in part, our motion (the “2009 OPEB Motion”) requesting authorization to modify certain post-retirement welfare benefits (the “OPEB Benefits”) under our post-retirement welfare benefit plans (the “OPEB Plans”), including the OPEB Benefits of certain Uniroyal salaried retirees (the “Uniroyal Salaried Retirees”).  On April 5, 2010, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order denying the Uniroyal Salaried Retirees’ motion to reconsider the 2009 OPEB Order based, among other things, on the Uniroyal Salaried Retirees’ failure to file a timely objection to the 2009 OPEB Motion.  On April 8, 2010, the Uniroyal Salaried Retirees appealed the Bankruptcy Court’s April 5, 2010 order and on April 14, 2010, sought a stay pending their appeal (the “Stay”) of the 2009 OPEB Order as to our right to modify the OPEB Benefits.  On April 21, 2010, the Bankruptcy Court ordered us not to modify the Uniroyal Salaried Retirees’ OPEB Benefits pending a hearing and decision as to the Stay.  After consulting with the official committees of unsecured creditors and equity security holders, we requested that the Bankruptcy Court have a hearing to decide, as a matter of law, whether we have the right to modify the OPEB Benefits of the Uniroyal Salaried Retirees as requested in the 2009 OPEB Motion.  In November 2011, we reached an agreement in principle with a steering committee of the Uniroyal Salaried Retirees resolving all disputes concerning the 2009 OPEB Motion.  On February 21, 2012, we filed a motion with the Bankruptcy Court seeking approval of a settlement stipulation with the steering committee of the Uniroyal Salaried Retirees based upon the prior agreement in principle and authorizing us to implement changes to the OPEB Benefits of all Uniroyal Salaried Retirees based upon the settlement stipulation and as a partial grant of the relief requested in the 2009 OPEB Motion.  The Bankruptcy Court approved the motion at a hearing held on March 29, 2012.  The changes were communicated to the participants in May 2012.  The impact of the change was an $8 million increase to the projected benefit obligation, which we recorded in the second quarter of 2012 as an increase to the pension and post-retirement healthcare liabilities, with an offset to AOCL on our Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2012.

 

On May 9, 2011, one of our UK subsidiaries entered into definitive agreements with the trustees of the Great Lakes U.K. Limited Pension Plan (“the UK Pension Plan”) over the terms of a “recovery plan” which provided for a series of additional cash contributions to be made to reduce the underfunding over time.  The agreements provided, among other things, for our UK subsidiary to make cash contributions of £60 million (approximately $96 million) in just over a three year period, with the initial contribution of £30 million ($49 million) made in the second quarter of 2011 and the second contribution of £15 million ($24 million) made in the second quarter of 2012.  The next contribution of  £8 million ($12 million) is expected to be made in the second quarter of 2013.  The agreements also provided for the granting of both a security interest and a guarantee to support certain of the liabilities under the UK Pension Plan.

Table of Contents

 

There is also an evaluation being undertaken as to whether additional benefit obligations exist in connection with the equalization of certain benefits under the UK Pension Plan that occurred in the early 1990s.  Based on the results of the evaluation to date, $8 million of expense was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011, which may be subject to adjustment as further information is gathered as part of the evaluation.  Upon completion of the evaluation and the finalization of the liability with respect to additional benefit obligations, additional cash contributions to the UK Pension Plan may be required starting in 2013.  There were no changes resulting from the evaluation during the first quarter of 2013.

 

13)          DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES

 

Our activities expose our earnings, cash flows and financial condition to a variety of market risks, including the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, interest rates and energy prices.  We maintain a risk management strategy that may utilize derivative instruments to mitigate risk against foreign currency movements.  We do not enter into derivative instruments for trading or speculative purposes.

 

We have exposure to changes in foreign currency exchange rates resulting from transactions entered into by us and our foreign subsidiaries in currencies other than their functional currency (primarily trade payables and receivables).  We are also exposed to currency risk on intercompany transactions (including intercompany loans).  We manage these currency risks on a consolidated basis, which allows us to net our exposure.

 

In April 2012, we purchased two forward contracts with a notional amount totaling $25 million to reduce the risk of currency exposure related to the remaining two annual installments of proceeds from the sale of our 50% interest in Tetrabrom Technologies Ltd. in 2011.  We use fair value accounting methods for these contracts and have recorded a loss of $1 million reflecting the changes in the fair market value of these contracts in other income, net in our Consolidated Statement of Operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  The resulting net liability of the changes in fair market value of these contracts of $1 million has been accounted for in other current assets and other assets in our Consolidated Balance Sheet.

 

During the first quarter of 2013, we entered into a zero cost collar contract and an additional forward contract to reduce the risk of currency exposure related to the Euro in one of our consolidated subsidiaries.  These contracts mature at various times during the second quarter of 2013.  We use fair value accounting methods for these contracts and have recorded a gain of $3 million reflecting the changes in fair market value of these contracts in other income, net in our Consolidated Statement of Operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  The resulting net asset of the changes in fair market value of these contracts of $3 million has been accounted for in other current assets in our Consolidated Balance Sheet as of March 31, 2013.

 

14)          FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

Financial Instruments

 

The carrying amounts for cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, other current assets, accounts payable and other current liabilities, approximate their fair value because of the short-term maturities of these instruments.  The fair value of debt is based primarily on quoted market values.

 

The following table presents the carrying amounts and estimated fair values of material financial instruments used by us in the normal course of business:

Fair Value Measurements

 

We apply the provisions of ASC 820 with respect to our financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value within the financial statements on a recurring basis.  ASC 820 specifies a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on whether the inputs to those valuation techniques are observable or unobservable.  Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect our market assumptions.  The fair value hierarchy specified by ASC 820 is as follows:

 

·                   Level 1 — Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities.

·                   Level 2 — Quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market date.

 

16



Table of Contents

 

·                   Level 3 — Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities.

 

Level 1 fair value measurements in 2013 and 2012 included securities purchased in connection with the deferral of compensation, our match and investment earnings related to the supplemental savings plan.  These securities are considered our general assets until distributed to the participant and are included in other assets in our Consolidated Balance Sheets.  A corresponding liability is included in other liabilities at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 in our Consolidated Balance Sheets.  Quoted market prices were used to determine fair values of these Level 1 investments which are held in a trust with a third-party brokerage firm.  The fair value of the asset and corresponding liability was $2 million at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

 

Level 2 fair value measurements are used to value our financial instruments subject to foreign currency exchange risk (see Note 13 — Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities.)  For the three months ended March 31, 2013, there were no transfers into or out of Levels 1 and 2.

 

Level 3 fair value measurements are utilized in our impairment reviews of Goodwill (see Note 6 — Goodwill and Intangible Assets).

 

Level 1, 2 and 3 fair value measurements are utilized for defined benefit plan assets in determining the funded status of our pension and post-retirement benefit plan liabilities on an annual basis (at December 31).

 

15)          ASSET RETIREMENT OBLIGATIONS

 

We apply the provisions of ASC Topic 410, Asset Retirements and Environmental Obligations (“ASC 410”), which requires us to make estimates regarding future events in order to record a liability for asset retirement obligations in the period in which a legal obligation is created.  Such liabilities are recorded at fair value, with an offsetting increase to the carrying value of the related long-lived assets.  The fair value is estimated by discounting projected cash flows over the estimated life of the assets using our credit adjusted risk-free rate applicable at the time the obligation is initially recorded.  In future periods, the liability is accreted to its present value and the capitalized cost is depreciated over the useful life of the related asset.  We also adjust the liability for changes resulting from revisions to the timing of future cash flows or the amount of the original estimate.  Upon retirement of the long-lived asset, we either settle the obligation for its recorded amount or incur a gain or loss.

 

Our asset retirement obligations include estimates for all asset retirement obligations identified for our worldwide facilities.  Our asset retirement obligations are primarily the result of legal obligations for the removal of leasehold improvements and restoration of premises to their original condition upon termination of leases at approximately 20 facilities; legal obligations to close approximately 90 brine supply, brine disposal, waste disposal, and hazardous waste injection wells and the related pipelines at the end of their useful lives; and decommissioning and decontamination obligations that are legally required to be fulfilled upon closure of approximately 30 of our manufacturing facilities.

 

The following is a summary of the change in the carrying amount of the asset retirement obligations for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 and the net book value of assets related to the asset retirement obligations at March 31, 2013 and 2012:

16)          EMERGENCE FROM CHAPTER 11

 

On March 18, 2009 (the “Petition Date”) Chemtura and 26 of our U.S. affiliates (collectively the “U.S. Debtors” or the “Debtors” when used in relation to matters before August 8, 2010) filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of Title

 

17



Table of Contents

 

11 of the United States Code (“Chapter 11”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Bankruptcy Court”).

 

On August 8, 2010, our Canadian subsidiary, Chemtura Canada Co/Cie (“Chemtura Canada”), filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11.  On August 11, 2010, Chemtura Canada commenced ancillary recognition proceedings under Part IV of the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (the “CCAA”) in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, (the “Canadian Court” and such proceedings, the “Canadian Case”).  The U.S. Debtors along with Chemtura Canada after it filed for Chapter 11 (collectively the “Debtors”) requested the Bankruptcy Court to enter an order jointly administering Chemtura Canada’s Chapter 11 case with the previously filed Chapter 11 cases and appoint Chemtura Canada as the “foreign representative” for the purposes of the Canadian Case.  Such orders were granted on August 9, 2010.  On August 11, 2010, the Canadian Court entered an order recognizing the Chapter 11 cases as a “foreign proceedings” under the CCAA.

 

On November 3, 2010, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order confirming the Debtors’ plan of reorganization (the “Plan”).  On November 10, 2010 (the “Effective Date”), the Debtors substantially consummated their reorganization through a series of transactions contemplated by the Plan and the Plan became effective.

 

On June 10, 2011, we filed a closing report in Chemtura Canada’s Chapter 11 case and a motion seeking a final decree closing that Chapter 11 case.  On June 23, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court granted our motion and entered a final decree closing the Chapter 11 case of Chemtura Canada.

 

On December 1, 2011, we filed a motion requesting entry of an order granting a final decree closing the Chapter 11 cases of 22 Debtors (the “Fully Administered Debtors”):

 

· A&M Cleaning Products LLC

 

· Crompton Colors Incorporated

 

· Laurel Industries Holdings, Inc.

· Aqua Clear Industries, LLC

 

· Crompton Holding Corporation

 

· Monochem, Inc.

· ASEPSIS, Inc.

 

· Crompton Monochem, Inc.

 

· Naugatuck Treatment Company

· GT Seed Treatment, Inc.

 

· Weber City Road LLC

· Biolab Franchise Company, LLC

 

· HomeCare Labs, Inc

 

· WRL of Indiana, Inc.

· BioLab Textile Additives, LLC

 

· ISCI, Inc.

 

 

· CNK Chemical Realty Corporation

 

· Kem Manufacturing Corporation

 

 

 

On December 15, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order granting a final decree closing the Fully Administered Debtors’ Chapter 11 cases.

 

On January 5, 2012, we filed a motion with the Bankruptcy Court seeking authority to make a third supplemental distribution to Holders of Interests, which was granted by the Bankruptcy Court on January 26, 2012.  The Bankruptcy Court extended the time to make the third supplemental distribution by order dated March 2, 2012 and authorized an increase to the third supplemental distribution by order dated March 8, 2012.  The third supplemental distribution was made in March 2012 and included payments of $3 million in cash and $20 million in stock, valuing the stock at the Plan valuation.

 

On February 7, 2012, we filed a motion requesting entry of an order granting a final decree closing the Chapter 11 cases for Bio-Lab, Inc. and GLCC Laurel, LLC, which was granted by the Bankruptcy Court on February 22, 2012.

 

On March 16, 2012, we filed a motion requesting entry of an order granting a final decree closing the Chapter 11 cases for Great Lakes Chemical Corporation and Uniroyal Chemical Company Limited (Delaware), which was granted by the Bankruptcy Court on March 29, 2012.

 

On May 4, 2012, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order disallowing and expunging the last two general unsecured claims in Chemtura’s Chapter 11 case.

 

In July 2012, we made a final distribution to Holders of Interests under the Plan including all amounts remaining in the Disputed Claims Reserve.  The final distribution included $3 million in stock valued at the Plan valuation.

 

On October 2, 2012, the Bankruptcy Court granted the motion of Momentive Performance Materials, Inc. (“Momentive”) for an order granting our prior motion under the Plan to assume our executory contract with Momentive and directing payment of a purportedly agreed cure claim.  After a contested hearing, the Bankruptcy Court granted the motion by order dated October 17, 2012.  The payment of the cure claim will resolve all claims of default under the agreement through October 2, 2012.

 

As of December 31, 2012, there were no remaining undisbursed amounts in the Disputed Claims Reserve.

On January 31, 2013, the Bankruptcy Court granted Chemtura’s motion to enforce the discharge injunction under the Plan.  On February 7, 2013, the Bankruptcy Court entered a written order consistent with its ruling.  On February 20, 2013, the claimants appealed the Bankruptcy Court’s February 7, 2013 order, and the appeal is pending in the Bankruptcy Court.

 

As of March 31, 2013, the Bankruptcy Court has entered orders granting final decrees closing all of the Debtors’ Chapter 11 cases except the Chapter 11 case of Chemtura Corporation.

 

Reorganization items, net was less than $1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  Reorganization items, net was $2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, which included $1 million for professional fees and $1 million for claim settlements.  Claim settlements represent the difference between the settlement amount of certain pre-petition obligations (which for obligations settled in common stock are based on the fair value of our stock at the issuance date) and the corresponding carrying value of the recorded liabilities.

 

17)          LEGAL PROCEEDINGS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

We are involved in claims, litigation, administrative proceedings and investigations of various types in a number of jurisdictions.  A number of such matters involve, or may involve, claims for a material amount of damages and relate to or allege, among other things, environmental liabilities, including clean-up costs associated with hazardous waste disposal sites, natural resource damages, property damage and personal injury.

 

As a result of the Chapter 11 cases, substantially all prepetition litigation and claims against us and our subsidiaries that were Debtors in the Chapter 11 cases have been discharged and permanently enjoined from further prosecution and are described below under the subheading “Prepetition Litigation and Claims Discharged Under the Plan.”

 

Claims and legal actions asserted against non-Debtors or relating to events occurring after the Effective Date, certain regulatory and administrative proceedings and certain contractual and other claims assumed with the authorization of the Bankruptcy Court, were not discharged in the Chapter 11 cases and are described below under the subheading “Litigation and Claims Not Discharged Under the Plan.”

 

Prepetition Litigation and Claims Discharged Under the Plan

 

Chapter 11 Plan and Establishment of Claims Reserves

 

On March 18, 2009, the Debtors filed voluntary petitions in the Bankruptcy Court seeking relief under Chapter 11.  The Debtors’ Chapter 11 cases were assigned to the Honorable Robert E. Gerber and are being jointly administered as Case No. 09-11233.  The Debtors continued to operate their business as debtors in possession under the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court until their emergence from Chapter 11 on November 10, 2010.

 

Pursuant to the Plan, and by orders of the Bankruptcy Court dated September 24, 2010, October 19, 2010 and October 29, 2010, the Debtors established the Diacetyl Reserve, the Environmental Reserve and the Disputed Claims Reserve, each as defined in the Plan, on account of claims that were not yet allowed in the Chapter 11 cases as of the Effective Date, including proofs of claim asserted against the Debtors that were subject to objection as of the Effective Date (the “Disputed Claims”).  The Diacetyl Reserve was approved by the Bankruptcy Court in the amount of $7 million, comprised of separate segregated reserves, and has since been reduced as settlement agreements have been approved by the Bankruptcy Court.  The Environmental Reserve was approved by the Bankruptcy Court in the amount of $38 million, a portion of which was further segregated into certain separate reserves established to account for settlements that were pending Bankruptcy Court approval, and has since been reduced as settlement agreements have been approved by the Bankruptcy Court.  The Disputed Claims Reserve was approved by the Bankruptcy Court in the amount of $42 million, plus additional segregated individual reserves for certain creditors’ claims in the aggregate amount of approximately $30 million, all of which have been reduced as settlement agreements have been approved by the Bankruptcy Court.

 

On June 24, 2011, we resolved the final disputed Environmental Claim.  As a result, under the Plan, the amounts remaining in the Environmental Reserve were transferred to the Disputed Claims Reserve.  Any remaining Disputed Claims, to the extent they were ultimately allowed by the Bankruptcy Court, were satisfied (to the extent allowed and not covered by insurance) from the Disputed Claims Reserve.  Holders of the Disputed Claims are permanently enjoined under the Plan from pursuing their claims against us.  On May 4, 2012, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order disallowing the last Disputed Claim subject to the Disputed Claims Reserve.  In July 2012, we made a final distribution to Holders of Interests in accordance with the Plan that included all amounts remaining in the Disputed Claims Reserve.

Litigation and Claims Not Discharged Under the Plan

 

Environmental Liabilities

 

We are involved in environmental matters of various types in a number of jurisdictions.  A number of such matters involve claims for material amounts of damages and relate to or allege environmental liabilities, including clean up costs associated with hazardous waste disposal sites and natural resource damages.

 

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as amended (“CERCLA”), and comparable state statutes impose strict liability upon various classes of persons with respect to the costs associated with the investigation and remediation of waste disposal sites.  Such persons are typically referred to as “Potentially Responsible Parties” or PRPs.  Chemtura and several of our subsidiaries have been identified by federal, state or local governmental agencies or by other PRPs, as a PRP at various locations in the United States.  Because in certain circumstances these laws have been construed to authorize the imposition of joint and several liability, the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and comparable state agencies could seek to recover all costs involving a waste disposal site from any one of the PRPs for such site, including Chemtura, despite the involvement of other PRPs.  In many cases, we are one of a large number of PRPs with respect to a site.  In a few instances, we are the sole or one of only a handful of PRPs performing investigation and remediation.  Where other financially responsible PRPs are involved, we expect that any ultimate liability resulting from such matters will be apportioned between us and such other parties.  In addition, we are involved with environmental remediation and compliance activities at some of our current and former sites in the United States and abroad.

 

Each quarter, we evaluate and review estimates for future remediation and other costs to determine appropriate environmental reserve amounts.  For each site where the cost of remediation is probable and reasonably estimable, we determine the specific measures that are believed to be required to remediate the site, the estimated total cost to carry out the remediation plan, the portion of the total remediation costs to be borne by us and the anticipated time frame over which payments toward the remediation plan will occur.  At sites where we expect to incur ongoing operation and maintenance expenditures, we accrue on an undiscounted basis for a period of generally 10 years those costs which we believe are probable and reasonably estimable.

 

On September 17, 2012, our subsidiary Great Lakes Chemical Corporation received an enforcement notice from the United States Department of Justice acting on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) which has alleged violations of a National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Permit issued under the Clean Water Act in conjunction with its facility in El Dorado, Arkansas.  The EPA is seeking injunctive relief and civil penalties.  While the calculated penalty is approximately $5 million, we believe the matter will be settled for an amount significantly lower than the calculated penalty and will not have a material effect.

 

The total amount accrued for environmental liabilities as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 was $100 million and $84 million, respectively.  At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, $22 million and $15 million, respectively, of these environmental liabilities were reflected as accrued expenses and $78 million and $69 million, respectively, were reflected as other liabilities.  We estimate that the reasonably possible ongoing environmental liabilities could range up to $116 million at March 31, 2013.  Our accruals for environmental liabilities include estimates for determinable clean-up costs.  We recorded  pre-tax charges of $20 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 which included a $21 million charge related to a legacy non-operating site in France, and made payments of $3 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2013 for clean-up costs, which reduced our environmental liabilities.  At certain sites, we have contractual agreements with certain other parties to share remediation costs.  As of March 31, 2013, no receivables are outstanding related to these agreements.  At a number of these sites, the extent of contamination has not yet been fully investigated or the final scope of remediation is not yet determinable.  We intend to assert all meritorious legal defenses and will pursue other equitable factors that are available with respect to these matters.  However, the final cost of clean-up at these sites could exceed our present estimates, and could have, individually or in the aggregate, a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.  Our estimates for environmental remediation liabilities may change in the future should additional sites be identified, further remediation measures be required or undertaken, current laws and regulations be modified or additional environmental laws and regulations be enacted, and as negotiations with respect to certain sites.

 

Other

 

We are routinely subject to other civil claims, litigation and arbitration, and regulatory investigations, arising in the ordinary course of our business, as well as in respect of our divested businesses.  Some of these claims and litigations relate to product liability claims, including claims related to our current and historical products and asbestos-related claims concerning premises and historic products of our corporate affiliates and predecessors.  We believe the claims relating to the period before the filing of the Chapter 11 cases are subject to discharge pursuant to the Plan and have been satisfied, to the extent they were timely filed in the Chapter 11 cases and allowed by the Bankruptcy Court, solely from the Disputed Claims Reserve.  Further, we believe that we have strong defenses to these claims.  These claims have not had a material impact on us to date and we believe the likelihood that a future material adverse outcome will result from these claims is remote.

 

20



Table of Contents

 

However, we cannot be certain that an adverse outcome of one or more of these claims, to the extent not discharged in the Chapter 11 cases, would not have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

 

Guarantees

 

In addition to the letters of credit of $15 million and $14 million outstanding at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively, we have guarantees that have been provided to various financial institutions.  At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, we had $12 million of outstanding guarantees.  The letters of credit and guarantees were primarily related to liabilities for insurance obligations, environmental obligations, banking and credit facilities, vendor deposits and European value added tax (“VAT”) obligations.

 

We have applied the disclosure provisions of ASC Topic 460, Guarantees (“ASC 460”), to our agreements that contain guarantee or indemnification clauses.  We are a party to several agreements pursuant to which we may be obligated to indemnify a third party with respect to certain loan obligations of joint venture companies in which we have an equity interest.  These obligations arose to provide initial financing for a joint venture start-up, fund an acquisition and/or provide project capital.  Such obligations mature through May 2016.  In the event that any of the joint venture companies were to default on these loan obligations, we would indemnify the other party up to its proportionate share of the obligation based upon its ownership interest in the joint venture.  At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the maximum potential future principal and interest payments due under these guarantees were $3 million.  In accordance with ASC 460, we have accrued less than $1 million in reserves, which represents the probability weighted fair value of these guarantees at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012.  The reserve has been included in other liabilities on our Consolidated Balance Sheet at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 with an offset to the investment included in other assets.

 

In addition, we have financing agreements with banks in Brazil for certain customers under which we receive funds from the banks at invoice date, and in turn, the customer agrees to pay the banks on the due date.  We provide a full recourse guarantee to the banks in the event of customer non-payment.

 

In the ordinary course of business, we enter into contractual arrangements under which we may agree to indemnify a third party to such arrangement from any losses incurred relating to the services they perform on our behalf or for losses arising from certain events as defined within the particular contract, which may include, for example, litigation, claims or environmental matters relating to our past performance.  For any losses that we believe are probable and estimable, we have accrued for such amounts in our Consolidated Balance Sheets.

 

18)          BUSINESS SEGMENT DATA

 

We evaluate a segment’s performance based on several factors, of which the primary factor is operating income (loss).  In computing operating income (loss) by segment, the following items have not been deducted:  (1) general corporate expense; (2) amortization; (3) facility closures, severance and related costs; and (4) changes in estimates related to expected allowable claims.  Pursuant to ASC Topic 280, Segment Reporting (“ASC 280”), these items have been excluded from our presentation of segment operating income (loss) because they are not reported to the chief operating decision maker for purposes of allocating resources among reporting segments or assessing segment performance.

 

Industrial Performance Products

 

Industrial Performance Products are engineered solutions for our customers’ specialty chemical needs.  Industrial Performance Products include petroleum additives that provide detergency, friction modification and corrosion protection in automotive lubricants, greases, refrigeration and turbine lubricants; castable urethane prepolymers engineered to provide superior abrasion resistance and durability in many industrial and recreational applications; and polyurethane dispersions and urethane prepolymers used in various types of coatings such as clear floor finishes, high-gloss paints and textiles treatments.  These products are sold directly to manufacturers and through distribution channels.

 

On November 9, 2012, we announced the sale of our Antioxidant business.  As a result of entering into this transaction, the assets and liabilities included in the Antioxidant Sale have been presented as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations and earnings and direct costs associated with the Antioxidant business have been presented as loss from discontinued operations, net of tax.  The Antioxidant business was formerly included in the Industrial Performance Product segment.

 

Industrial Engineered Products

 

Industrial Engineered Products are chemical additives designed to improve the performance of polymers in their end-use applications. Industrial Engineered Products include brominated performance products, flame retardants, fumigants and organometallics.  The products are sold across the entire value chain ranging from direct sales to monomer producers, polymer

manufacturers, compounders and fabricators, fine chemical manufacturers, utilities, pharmaceutical manufactures and oilfield service companies to industry distributors.

 

Consumer Products

 

Consumer Products are performance chemicals that are sold to consumers for in-home and outdoor use.  Consumer Products include a variety of branded recreational water purification products sold through local dealers and large retailers to assist consumers in the maintenance and enhancement of their pools and spas and branded cleaners and degreasers sold primarily through mass merchants and large retailers to consumers for home cleaning.

 

Chemtura AgroSolutions

 

Chemtura AgroSolutions develops, supplies, registers and sells agricultural chemicals formulated for specific crops in various geographic regions for the purpose of enhancing quality and improving yields.  The business focuses on specific target markets in six major product lines: seed treatments, fungicides, miticides, insecticides, growth regulators and herbicides.  These products are sold directly to growers and to major distributors in the agricultural sector.

 

General Corporate Expense and Other Charges

 

General corporate expense includes costs and expenses that are of a general corporate nature or managed on a corporate basis.  These costs (net of allocations to the business segments) primarily represent corporate stewardship and administration activities together with costs associated with legacy activities and intangible asset amortization.  Functional costs are allocated between the business segments and general corporate expense.  Certain functional and other expenses that are managed company-wide that were allocated to the Antioxidant business do not transfer directly under the Antioxidant Sale.  As such, in historic periods these costs are shown as part of continuing operations in the corporate segment and not included under loss from discontinued operations, net of tax.  These costs approximate $4 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and 2012.  Facility closures, severance and related costs are primarily for severance costs related to our cost savings initiatives.  Change in estimates related to expected allowable claims relates to adjustments to resolve disputed claims.
