Albemarle Corp. Research Report

On July 17, 2013, Albemarle Corp. (Albemarle) announced its Q2 2013 financial
results. Net sales stood at $634.2 million, compared to $684.9 million in Q2
2012. According to the Company, the decline in net sales were driven by the
exit from the phosphorus flame retardants business, lower metals surcharges,
unfavorable pricing in our bromine portfolio and lower fine chemistry services
volumes which was to some extent offset by good volumes Albermarle's Refinery
Catalysts and Brominated Flame Retardent Business. Luke Kissam, CEO
Albermarle, stated, "Our businesses delivered EBITDA margins of 22% in spite
of facing lower metals surcharges and an economic environment which saw
continued sluggishness across Europe, weak electronics and construction
markets and a much weaker China than most anticipated at the beginning of the
year. We also successfully met several key milestones with regard to bringing
on our bromine and organometallics expansions, which will be essential drivers
of our long term growth." The Full Research Report on Albemarle Corp. -
