LyondellBasell Reports First-Quarter 2012 Results07:00 EDT Monday, April 30, 2012Solid Start to New YearROTTERDAM, Netherlands, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --First Quarter 2012 Highlights $599 million net income or $1.04 diluted earnings per share First-quarter EBITDA of $1,236 million North American olefins and refining margins strengthened across the quarter Operations at Berre refinery ceased in early January Continued debt restructuring through refinancing; weighted average interest rate will reduce to approximately 5.5 percent LyondellBasell Industries (NYSE: LYB) today announced net income for the first quarter 2012 of $599 million, or $1.04 per share.  First-quarter 2012 EBITDA was $1,236 million, a 131 percent increase from the fourth quarter 2011.Comparisons with the prior quarter and first quarter 2011 are available in the following table.Table 1 - Earnings Summary Three Months EndedMarch 31,December 31,March 31,Millions of U.S. dollars (except share data) 2012 20112011Sales and other operating revenues $11,879$11,444$12,252Net income (loss)(a)599 (218)660Diluted earnings (loss) per share (U.S. dollars) 1.04 (0.38)1.15Diluted share count (millions)  575 572569EBITDA(b)1,236 5361,402(a)  Includes net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests.  See Table 11.(b)  See the end of this release for an explanation of the Company's use of EBITDA and Table 9 for reconciliations of EBITDA to net income.During the first quarter 2012, results improved across all business segments over the fourth quarter 2011.  The most notable improvements were in the Olefins & Polyolefins ? Americas segment, which benefitted from increased product pricing and lower feedstock costs, and in the Refining & Oxyfuels segment, which saw higher margins at the Houston refinery, abnormally strong margins in oxyfuels for this time of year, and the suspension of operations at the Berre refinery in early January.  Results also reflect the following charges and benefits:Table 2 - Charges (Benefits) Included in Net IncomeThree Months EndedMarch 31,December 31,March 31,Millions of U.S. dollars (except share data)201220112011Pretax charges (benefits): Charges and premiums related to repayment of debt$ - -$431$ - -Berre refinery closure costs- -136- -Reorganization items(5)152Corporate restructurings- -18- -Impairments2285Warrants - mark to market10659Insurance settlement- -- -(34)Settlement related to Houston refinery crane incident- -(15)- -Total pretax charges (benefits)2759932Provision for (benefit from) income tax related to these items(5)(151)11After-tax effect of net charges (credits)$22$448$43Effect on diluted earnings per share($0.03)($0.79)($0.08)"We had a solid start to 2012 as margins in North American olefins and our Houston refinery rebounded from the weak levels experienced in the fourth quarter of last year," said Jim Gallogly, LyondellBasell Chief Executive Officer.  "Benchmark margins in both businesses were excellent at the end of the quarter, and the momentum has continued into the second quarter. In North American olefins, planned and unplanned industry maintenance led to a reduction in the cost of raw materials and increased ethylene prices," he said.  "The European olefins and polyolefins markets recovered from a very poor fourth quarter but were pressured by rising raw material costs, and generally remain weak.  We continue to see steady results from our Intermediates and Derivatives, and Technology segments, as well as our differentiated businesses within Olefins & Polyolefins ? Europe, Asia, International," Gallogly said."In early April, we took further steps in advancing our capital structure and completed a very successful refinancing of nearly all of our higher cost debt.   Combined with our fourth-quarter financing, we have reduced future interest expense by approximately $325 million annually," Gallogly said.  OUTLOOKCommenting on the near-term outlook, Gallogly said, "The margin improvement momentum that benefitted the first quarter has continued into April.  With global oil prices north of $100 a barrel, U.S. natural gas approximately $2 per million BTUs and comparatively cheap natural gas liquids, U.S. ethylene manufacturers are in a great competitive position relative to other producers. In refining, the benchmark Maya 2-1-1 crack spread remains strong, benefitting our Houston refinery.""Operationally, our Channelview turnaround is nearing completion and many of the units are already back on line. We have made significant investment in our facilities in recent years to ensure they operate safely and reliably. We are in a good position to benefit significantly from market opportunities in 2012 and beyond," said Gallogly.LYONDELLBASELL BUSINESS RESULTS DISCUSSION BY REPORTING SEGMENT LyondellBasell operates in five business segments: 1) Olefins & Polyolefins ? Americas; 2) Olefins & Polyolefins ? Europe, Asia, International; 3) Intermediates & Derivatives; 4) Refining & Oxyfuels; and 5) Technology.Olefins & Polyolefins - Americas (O&P-Americas) ? The primary products of this segment include ethylene and its co-products (propylene, butadiene and benzene), polyethylene, polypropylene and Catalloy process resins.   Table 3 - O&P?Americas Financial OverviewThree Months EndedMarch 31,December 31,March 31,Millions of U.S. dollars201220112011Operating income$519$328$421EBITDA598407484 Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended December 31, 2011 ? O&P-Americas segment EBITDA increased $191 million versus the fourth quarter 2011.  Compared to the prior period, olefins results increased due to higher ethylene price and lower average feedstock cost.  Average ethylene sales price increased 2 cents per pound while the company's average cost-of-ethylene-production metric decreased approximately 10 cents per pound.  The decrease in the cost-of-ethylene-production was driven by lower natural gas liquids pricing, particularly ethane.  Ethylene production volume was reduced by approximately 200 million pounds as a result of a planned maintenance turnaround.  Polyethylene results increased approximately $40 million, primarily as a result of increased pricing, which more than offset increased feedstock costs.  Polypropylene results improved approximately $20 million from the fourth quarter 2011, primarily due to higher margins.  Overall, polyolefin sales volumes were slightly higher in the first quarter 2012 compared to the fourth quarter 2011.  A $10 million dividend was received in the first quarter 2012 from our Indelpro joint venture.Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2011 ? O&P-Americas results increased $114 million versus the first quarter 2011.  Olefins results increased compared to the prior year period, largely as a result of significantly improved margins.  This increase was partially offset by polyethylene results, which declined approximately $70 million as a result of lower margins caused by higher ethylene prices compared to the first quarter 2011.  Despite lower industry profitability in polyethylene, the overall industry ethylene / polyethylene chain margin increased from the first quarter 2011.  Polypropylene results were relatively unchanged compared to the first quarter 2011.Olefins & Polyolefins - Europe, Asia, International (O&P-EAI) ? The primary products of this segment include ethylene and its co-products (propylene and butadiene), polyethylene, polypropylene, global polypropylene compounds, Catalloy process resins and Polybutene-1 resins.   Table 4 - O&P?EAI Financial OverviewThree Months EndedMarch 31,December 31,March 31,Millions of U.S. dollars201220112011Operating income (loss)$5($55)$179EBITDA10362333Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended December 31, 2011 ? O&P-EAI segment EBITDA increased $41 million versus the fourth quarter 2011.  Olefins results increased approximately $20 million from the fourth quarter 2011 due primarily to higher volumes.  Olefins price increases in the first quarter were offset by higher feedstock costs.  Polyolefin results increased approximately $50 million from the prior period primarily due to higher polyethylene margins.    Polypropylene compounds results increased approximately $10 million from the fourth quarter 2011.  Dividends from joint ventures totaled $4 million during the first quarter 2012.Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2011 ? O&P-EAI segment EBITDA declined $230 million versus the first quarter 2011.  Compared to the first quarter 2011, olefins results declined approximately $70 million and polyolefin results declined approximately $60 million.  Both declines were driven primarily by lower margins.  Polypropylene compounding results were flat compared to the prior year.  Dividends from joint ventures decreased approximately $90 million.Intermediates & Derivatives (I&D) ? The primary products of this segment include propylene oxide (PO) and its co-products (styrene monomer, tertiary butyl alcohol (TBA), isobutylene and tertiary butyl hydroperoxide), and derivatives (propylene glycol, propylene glycol ethers and butanediol); acetyls, and ethylene oxide and its derivatives.   Table 5 - I&D Financial Overview Three Months EndedMarch 31,December 31,March 31,Millions of U.S. dollars 2012 20112011Operating income $245$134$234EBITDA 282 173270Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended December 31, 2011 ? I&D segment EBITDA increased $109 million versus the fourth quarter 2011.  PO and PO derivatives results increased versus the prior period primarily due to the completion of planned maintenance turnarounds and stronger trade sales.  Intermediates results increased versus the prior quarter primarily due to completion of planned maintenance turnarounds that negatively impacted acetyls and TBA sales in the fourth quarter. Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2011 ? I&D EBITDA increased $12 million compared to the first quarter 2011.  PO and PO derivatives EBITDA increased slightly versus the prior year period due to improved margins in PO derivatives offset by weaker propylene glycol sales volumes used in deicing products.  Intermediates results were flat compared to the prior period as improved BDO and TBA derivative margins were offset by lower results in ethylene oxide / ethylene glycols.Refining & Oxyfuels (R&O) ? The primary products of this segment include gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, jet fuel, petrochemical raw materials, methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) and ethyl tertiary butyl ether (ETBE).   Table 6 - R&O Financial OverviewThree Months EndedMarch 31,December 31, March 31,Millions of U.S. dollars20122011  2011 Operating income (loss)$140($196) $164EBITDA192(110)*210 *  Includes $136 million of charges related to the suspension of operations at the Berre refinery.Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended December 31, 2011 ? Refining & Oxyfuels segment EBITDA increased $302 million versus the fourth quarter 2011.  The Houston refinery operated near capacity at 259,000 barrels per day, which was relatively unchanged from the prior quarter.  Results for the Houston refinery increased approximately $30 million, as margins improved from the fourth quarter 2011.  Relative to the industry benchmark, the Houston refinery's realized margins were negatively affected by the residual effects of fourth quarter 2011 crude volatility, absence of certain synergies related to the Channelview maintenance turnaround, and low refinery byproduct pricing.  Oxyfuels results experienced an increase of approximately $80 million, primarily related to stronger than typical seasonal margins.  The Berre refinery suspended operations on January 4, 2012.  During the quarter, fixed costs associated with securing the assets continued to occur but were more than offset by sales of inventory at the refinery.  The Berre refinery results in the fourth quarter 2011 include $136 million of charges related to the suspension of operations.  Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2011 ? Refining & Oxyfuels segment EBITDA decreased $18 million versus the first quarter 2011.  At the Houston refinery, EBITDA decreased approximately $110 million versus the prior year period.  Results were driven by a lower industry average benchmark margin.  Oxyfuels results improved approximately $90 million between the periods mainly as a result of stronger than typical seasonal margins and higher volumes.  Operations at the Berre refinery were suspended on January 4, 2012.Technology Segment ? The principal products of the Technology segment include polyolefin catalysts and production process technology licenses and related services.  Table 7 - Technology Financial Overview Three Months EndedMarch 31, December 31,March 31,Millions of U.S. dollars2012  2011 2011Operating income$38 $11$66EBITDA57  36 91Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended December 31, 2011 ? Results increased primarily due to higher licensing income and catalyst sales. Three months ended March 31, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2011 ? Licensing income declined compared to the first quarter 2011.LiquidityCompany liquidity, defined as cash and cash equivalents plus funds available through established lines of credit, was approximately $4.1 billion on March 31, 2012.  The company's cash balance was approximately $1.7 billion on March 31, 2012.Capital SpendingCapital expenditures, including maintenance turnaround, catalyst and information technology related expenditures, were $229 million during the first quarter 2012.CONFERENCE CALLLyondellBasell will host a conference call today, April 30, 2012, at 12:00 p.m. ET.  Participating on the call will be: Jim Gallogly, Chief Executive Officer; Karyn Ovelmen, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Sergey Vasnetsov, Senior Vice President - Strategic Planning and Transactions; and Doug Pike, Vice President of Investor Relations.  The toll-free dial-in number in the U.S. is 888-606-9542.  For international numbers, please go to the company website, www.lyondellbasell.com/teleconference, for a complete listing of toll-free numbers by country.  The pass code for all numbers is 1037125.
