LyondellBasell Reports Second-Quarter 2012 Results07:00 EDT Friday, July 27, 2012ROTTERDAM, Netherlands, July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Second-Quarter 2012 Highlights$768 million net income or $1.33 diluted earnings per share Second-quarter EBITDA of $1,774 million Olefins margins in North America and Europe expanded as raw material costs declined Interim quarterly dividend increased by 60 percent to 40 cents per share Berre refinery moved to discontinued operations; business segments have been realigned by moving Oxyfuels to Intermediates and DerivativesLyondellBasell Industries (NYSE: LYB) today announced earnings for the second quarter 2012 of $768 million, or $1.33 per share.  Discontinued operations had no impact on earnings in the second quarter.  Second-quarter 2012 EBITDA was $1,774 million, a 44 percent increase from the first quarter 2012. Second quarter net income includes the net negative effect of $191 million, or $0.33 per share, related to charges associated with debt repayments, and inventory accounting valuations, partially offset by proceeds from an insurance settlement. Comparisons with the prior quarter and second quarter 2011 are shown below:Table 1 - Earnings Summary(a)Three Months EndedSix Months EndedJune 30,Millions of U.S. dollars (except share data) June 30, 2012 March 31, 2012June 30, 201120122011Sales and other operating revenues $11,248 $11,734$13,306$22,982$24,686Net income(a)7685998031,3671,463Income from continuing operations 7685948511,3621,533Diluted earnings per share (U.S. dollars): Net income(b)1.331.041.382.372.56Income from continuing operations 1.331.031.462.362.68Diluted share count (millions)  577 575575576569EBITDA(c)1,774 1,2281,5933,0023,013EBITDA excluding LCM inventory valuation adjustments 1,845 1,228 1,593 3,073 3,013(a)  Includes net loss attributable to non-controlling interests and loss from discontinued operations, net of tax.  See Table 11.(b)  Includes diluted loss per share attributable to discontinued operations.(c)  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 second quarter 2012, results improved over the first quarter 2012, with the most significant improvements being in global olefins and North America polyolefins, which benefited from increased margins driven by lower feedstock costs.Results also reflect the following charges and benefits:Table 2 - Charges (Benefits) Included in Income from Continuing OperationsThree Months EndedSix Months EndedJune 30,March 31,June 30,June 30,Millions of U.S. dollars (except share data)20122012201120122011Pretax charges (benefits): Charges and premiums related to repayment of debt$329$ - -$12$329$12Reorganization items- -(5)28(5)30Corporate restructurings- -- -61- -61Impairments- -224224Sale of precious metals- -- -(41)- -(41)Warrants - mark to market- -10(6)1053Insurance settlement(100)- -- -(100)(34)Environmental accruals- -- -16- -16Lower of cost or market inventory adjustment71- -- -71- -Total pretax charges (benefits)3002774327101Provision for (benefit from) income tax relatedto these items(109)(5)(21)(114)(10)After-tax effect of net charges (credits)$191$22$53$213$91Effect on diluted earnings per share($0.33)($0.03)($0.09)($0.36)($0.16)"During the second quarter, we continued to demonstrate the earnings power of our company as margins strengthened over the first quarter," said Jim Gallogly, LyondellBasell Chief Executive Officer.  "While global economic uncertainties dominate the headlines, our company's performance has remained strong. NGL supply and costs continue to drive favorable U.S. olefin results particularly in the Midwest where ethane prices declined to below equivalent fuel values," he stated."The Olefins and Polyolefins-EAI segment benefited from improved European olefin margins and joint venture dividend payments despite weak European economic conditions, which led to lower volumes. The Intermediate and Derivatives, and Technology segments continue to demonstrate strong, steady performance. The Houston refinery operated near full capacity; however, low by-product values impacted refining results," Gallogly said."We accomplished several key milestones during the second quarter, including completing a major Channelview turnaround, finalizing our debt refinancing and raising our interim quarterly dividend by 60 percent," Gallogly indicated.  OUTLOOK"While we expect global economic uncertainty to continue and related volatility to limit our near-term visibility, we remain focused on the fundamentals. In North America, current ethane and propane raw material prices position our North American olefins business to remain advantaged relative to global ethylene producers. On the other hand, our European olefins and polyolefins business will be challenged, and thus we will continue efforts to improve our relative cost position," Gallogly added. "Safe and reliable operations, proprietary technologies, and access to low cost feedstocks in the U.S. and Middle East position us well to generate strong earnings and free cash flow. LyondellBasell is poised to move forward to a new chapter in which we are pursuing growth projects targeted to take advantage of opportunities created by North America's shale gas development," Gallogly said.LYONDELLBASELL BUSINESS RESULTS DISCUSSION BY REPORTING SEGMENT LyondellBasell operates in five business segments: 1) Olefins and Polyolefins ? Americas; 2) Olefins and Polyolefins ? Europe, Asia, International (EAI); 3) Intermediates and Derivatives; 4) Refining; and 5) Technology.We ceased operations at the Berre refinery on Jan. 4, 2012, and the dormant equipment was mothballed.  The majority of the product and raw material inventories at the refinery have been sold. Consistent with these actions and beginning with the second quarter results, these operations are now considered to be discontinued operations for U.S. GAAP reporting purposes.Additionally, our segments have been realigned with the movement of the oxyfuels business to the Intermediates and Derivatives segment.  In the past, the marketing of oxyfuels was aligned with the sale of products from our refining business, particularly related to Berre and significant European sales.  However, with the closure of the Berre refinery, responsibility for business decisions relating to oxyfuels has been moved to the Intermediates and Derivatives business management function, as the profits generated by these products are related to sourcing decisions regarding certain co-products of propylene oxide production. Consistent with this change, our former Refining and Oxyfuels segment has been renamed the Refining segment. Appendices A through D provide select financial data outlining and recasting these reporting changes.Olefins and 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 Overview Three Months EndedSix Months EndedJune 30, March 31,June 30,June 30,Millions of U.S. dollars2012  2012 201120122011Operating income$700  $519 $508$1,219$929EBITDA776  598 5771,3741,061EBITDA excluding LCM charges847  598 5771,4451,061Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2012 ? O&P-Americas segment EBITDA increased $178 million versus the first quarter 2012. Second quarter 2012 results include a $71 million Lower of Cost or Market adjustment. Compared to the prior period, olefins results increased approximately $170 million primarily due to improved margins.  Average ethylene sales price decreased 6 cents per pound while the company's average cost of ethylene production metric decreased approximately 13 cents per pound.  The decrease in the cost of ethylene production was driven by lower natural gas liquids and naphtha prices.  Ethylene production volume increased by approximately 150 million pounds after the completion of the Channelview turnaround in April. Polyethylene results increased approximately $30 million, primarily as a result of a decrease in ethylene raw material cost, which more than offset a decrease in polyethylene pricing.  Polypropylene results improved approximately $30 million from the first quarter 2012, primarily due to higher margins.  Overall, polyolefin sales volumes declined approximately 7 percent in the second quarter 2012 compared to the first quarter 2012.  The segment received $29 million in the second quarter from an insurance settlement for Hurricane Ike. Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended June 30, 2011 ? O&P-Americas results increased $199 million versus the second quarter 2011.  Olefins results increased approximately $230 million compared to the prior year period, largely as a result of significantly improved margins driven by lower natural gas liquids prices.  Combined polyolefins results improved by approximately $30 million. Second quarter 2012 results include a $71 million Lower of Cost or Market adjustment. Olefins and 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 EndedSix Months EndedJune 30,March 31,June 30,June 30,Millions of U.S. dollars20122012201120122011Operating income$203$3$203$206$378EBITDA335101273436602Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2012 ? O&P-EAI segment EBITDA increased $234 million versus the first quarter 2012. Olefins results increased approximately $180 million from the first quarter 2012 primarily due to margin expansion for light olefins and butadiene. Margin expansion was the result of declining raw material costs coupled with higher quarterly average sales prices. Combined polyolefin results were relatively unchanged. Polypropylene compounds and polybutene results were relatively unchanged from the first quarter 2012.  Dividends, primarily from our Saudi Arabia (SEPC) and Thailand (HMC Polymers) joint ventures, totaled $59 million during the second quarter 2012.Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended June 30, 2011 ? O&P-EAI segment EBITDA increased $62 million versus the second quarter 2011.  Compared to the second quarter 2011, olefins results were relatively unchanged while polyolefin results declined approximately $80 million primarily due to lower volumes and margins. Polypropylene compounding and polybutene results were $10 million higher than the prior year driven by higher margins. Second quarter 2012 includes $59 million related to dividend payments from our joint ventures. Second quarter 2011 results included charges of approximately $60 million from an O&P-EAI staff reorganization and environmental remediation. Intermediates and 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, ethylene oxide and its derivatives, and oxyfuels.   Table 5 - I&D Financial Overview Three Months EndedSix Months EndedJune 30,March 31,June 30,June 30,Millions of U.S. dollars 2012 2012201120122011Operating income $390 $370$327$760$603EBITDA 455 418419873740Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2012 ? I&D segment EBITDA increased $37 million versus the first quarter 2012.  EBITDA included an $18 million insurance settlement related to Hurricane Ike, and $14 million of dividends from our Asian PO joint ventures.  The underlying PO and derivatives results were relatively unchanged.  Intermediates results increased versus the prior quarter primarily driven by PO co-products margin improvement. Oxyfuels results were relatively unchanged compared to the prior quarter.Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended June 30, 2011 ? I&D EBITDA increased $36 million compared to the second quarter 2011. The underlying PO and derivatives EBITDA was relatively unchanged versus the prior year period.  Intermediates results decreased by approximately $50 million compared to the second quarter 2011 primarily due to the absence of a  $41 million gain on the sale of precious metals. Oxyfuels results improved approximately $40 million between the periods mainly as a result of stronger margins.  I&D also benefited from an insurance settlement payment of $18 million in the second quarter 2012 related to Hurricane Ike and dividend payments from our Asian PO joint ventures, which totaled $14 million. Refining? The primary products of this segment include gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, jet fuel, and petrochemical raw materials.Table 6 - Refining Financial Overview Three Months EndedSix Months EndedJune 30, March 31,June 30,June 30,Millions of U.S. dollars2012  2012 201120122011Operating income$124  $10 $258$134$416EBITDA161  48 293209483Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2012 ? Refining segment EBITDA increased $113 million versus the first quarter 2012.  The Houston refinery operated near capacity at 267,000 barrels per day, an increase of 8,000 barrels per day from the prior quarter. The benchmark crack spread Maya 2-1-1 increased $3.01 per barrel to $23.16 per barrel in the second quarter 2012. Relative to the benchmark spread, results continue to be negatively impacted from depressed by-product values such as coke.  Refining segment EBITDA results reflect $53 million related to a Hurricane Ike insurance settlement in the second quarter.   Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended June 30, 2011 ? Refining segment EBITDA decreased $132 million versus the second quarter 2011 due to a decline in the Maya 2-1-1 benchmark and lower by-product values. The 2011 period benefited from favorable crude purchasing opportunities. Second quarter 2012 EBITDA results included a $53 million benefit related to a Hurricane Ike insurance settlement.  Technology ? 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 EndedSix Months EndedJune 30, March 31,June 30,June 30,Millions of U.S. dollars2012  2012 201120122011Operating income$30  $38 $23$68$89EBITDA49  57 42106133Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended March 31, 2012 ? Results decreased primarily due to lower licensing and services income coupled with lower catalyst volumes. Three months ended June 30, 2012 versus three months ended June 30, 2011 ? Results increased due to lower research and development costs more than offsetting a decline in catalyst sales.LiquidityCompany liquidity, defined as cash and cash equivalents plus funds available through established lines of credit, was approximately $4.4 billion on June 30, 2012.  The company's cash balance was approximately $2.0 billion on June 30, 2012.Capital SpendingCapital expenditures, including maintenance turnaround, catalyst and information technology related expenditures, were $236 million during the second quarter 2012.CONFERENCE CALLLyondellBasell will host a conference call today, July 27, 2012, at 11 a.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.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.We have included EBITDA in this press release.  EBITDA, as presented herein, may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure reported by other companies due to differences in the way the measure is calculated. For purposes of this release, EBITDA means earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as adjusted for other items management does not believe are indicative of the Company's underlying results of operations such as impairment charges, reorganization items, and the effect of mark-to-market accounting on our warrants.  EBITDA also includes dividends from joint ventures.  EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to profit or operating profit for any period as an indicator of our performance, or as alternatives to operating cash flows as a measure of our liquidity.  Quantitative reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to their nearest comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in Tables 8 and 9 at the end of this release.OTHER FINANCIAL MEASURE PRESENTATION NOTESThis release contains time sensitive information that is accurate only as of the time hereof.
