The weakness we expected is more in Q4, now likely a modest loss. After a margin squeeze this winter, Venator could double, or better over 2-3 years. The ingredients: a spring restocking cycle that tightens TiO2 S/D balances (if consumer confidences holds up); normal summer seasonality (at least); and keeping most of the productivity. Timing of validation? Most likely after the Chinese New Year. Q3 EPS was $0.01 below consensus but $0.09 above our forecast: +$0.01 in flat in a lower tax rate. Total sales decreased 8% (-15% vol., +6% price, +1% sales mix and other); TiO2 sales decreased 10% (-18% vol., +7% price, +1% sales mix and other); and Performance Additives sales decreased 5% (-6% vol., +2% price, -1% sales mix and other)."
