Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) today reported second quarter 2020 results with revenues of $1,247 million, net loss of $59 million, adjusted net loss of $30 million and adjusted EBITDA of $54 million. 

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

“We were fortunate to have been more prepared than ever as we entered the second quarter in an unprecedented global economic crisis, with little to no visibility.  With our transformed balance sheet, there was no need to access capital markets and we completed the quarter with $2.6 billion of overall liquidity and generated positive free cash flow.  We remain focused on what we can control and have accelerated and improved integration plans for our recent acquisitions, CVC Thermoset Specialties and Icynene-Lapolla.  The total annualized targeted synergies for these acquisitions, to be achieved by the end of 2021, is now $35 million.  Including these synergies, we have plans to achieve in excess of $100 million of targeted annualized savings by year end 2021. While the ongoing related global effects of COVID-19 remain uncertain and visibility continues to be poor, we see improving trends within most of our major markets and are optimistic that the worst of this economic slowdown is behind us.”

Segment Analysis for 2Q20 Compared to 2Q19

Polyurethanes

The decrease in revenues in our Polyurethanes segment for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period of 2019 was due to lower MDI average selling prices and lower overall polyurethanes sales volumes. MDI average selling prices decreased across most major markets in relation to the global economic slowdown resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Overall polyurethanes sales volumes decreased in primarily relation to the global economic slowdown and the resulting decrease in demand across most major markets, partially offset by growth in China during the second quarter of 2020 and additional sales volumes in connection with the Icynene-Lapolla acquisition. The decrease in segment adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to lower component and polymeric systems margins largely driven by lower MDI pricing and lower polyurethanes sales volumes.
