Venator Provides Third Quarter 2022 Business Update and Announces Earnings Conference Call

PR Newswire

WYNYARD, United Kingdom
, Oct. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Venator Materials PLC (NYSE: VNTR) (“Venator”) today provided a third quarter business update.

Simon Turner, President and CEO of Venator, commented, “During the third quarter we saw a meaningful decline in sales volume for our TiO2 products in the European and Asian regions. We expect to report third quarter TiO2 sales volumes to be approximately 25% lower than in the second quarter. With limited outlook visibility and persistently high European energy costs, we have reduced production at our Uerdingen, Germany, facility to minimal levels and are reducing production at our Duisburg facility in Germany as well. We are also implementing other cost mitigation actions across the business. Demand for products from our Performance Additives businesses has been more resilient and the segment continues to perform reasonably well.”

Venator will hold a conference call to discuss its third quarter 2022 financial results on Monday, November 14, 2022, at 08:00 a.m. ET. Results will be released to the public before the market opens that day via PR Newswire.
