TITANIUM METALS CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

March 31, 2012

(Unaudited)

Note 1 – Basis of presentation and organization

Basis of presentation. The unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contained in this Quarterly Report have been prepared on the same basis as the audited Consolidated Financial Statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 that we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 29, 2012 (“2011 Annual Report”). They include the accounts of Titanium Metals Corporation and its majority owned subsidiaries (collectively referred to as “TIMET”). Unless otherwise indicated, references in this report to “we”, “us” or “our” refer to TIMET and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole. All material intercompany transactions and balances with consolidated subsidiaries have been eliminated. In our opinion, we have made all necessary adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) in order to state fairly, in all material respects, our consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows as of the dates and for the periods presented. We have condensed or omitted certain information and footnote disclosures (including those related to the Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2011) normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Our results of operations for the interim period ended March 31, 2012 may not be indicative of our operating results for the full year. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contained in this Quarterly Report should be read in conjunction with the 2011 Consolidated Financial Statements contained in our 2011 Annual Report. Our first three fiscal quarters reported are the approximate 13-week periods ending on the Saturday generally nearest to March 31, June 30 and September 30. Our fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year always end on December 31. For presentation purposes, our financial statements and the accompanying notes have been presented as ended on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31, as applicable.

Organization. At March 31, 2012, Contran Corporation and its subsidiaries held 29.6% of our outstanding common stock. Substantially all of Contran’s outstanding voting stock is held by trusts established for the benefit of certain children and grandchildren of Harold C. Simmons, of which Mr. Simmons is sole trustee, or is held by Mr. Simmons or persons or other entities related to Mr. Simmons. At March 31, 2012, Mr. Simmons and his spouse owned an aggregate of 15.7% of our common stock, and the Combined Master Retirement Trust (“CMRT”), a trust sponsored by Contran to permit the collective investment by trusts that maintain the assets of certain employee benefit plans adopted by Contran and certain related companies, held an additional 8.8% of our common stock. Mr. Simmons is the sole trustee of the CMRT and a member of the trust investment committee for the CMRT. Consequently, Mr. Simmons may be deemed to control each of Contran and us.

Note 2 – Fair value of financial instruments

Carrying amounts of certain of our financial instruments including, among others, cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable, approximate fair value because of their short maturities. We carry our investments in marketable equity securities at fair value based upon quoted market prices, and the carrying values of our notes receivable from affiliates approximate fair value because the applicable interest rates are variable based upon stated market indices. The carrying value of our indebtedness approximates fair value because the applicable interest rates are variable based upon stated market indices.

Note 3 – Notes receivable from affiliates

From time to time, companies related to Contran will have loans and advances outstanding between them and various related parties pursuant to term and demand notes. These loans and advances are generally entered into for specific transactions or cash management purposes.

Note 5 – Marketable securities

Our marketable securities include investments in the publicly traded shares of related parties, including NL Industries, Inc., Kronos Worldwide, Inc. and Valhi, Inc., each a majority owned subsidiary of Contran. All of our marketable securities are classified as available-for-sale, which are carried at fair value using quoted market prices in active markets for each marketable security, representing inputs from the highest level (level 1) within the fair value hierarchy. Because we have classified all of our marketable securities as available-for-sale, any unrealized gains or losses on the securities are recognized through other comprehensive income.

At March 31, 2012, we owned 2.1 million shares of Valhi common stock, which represents approximately 1.9% of Valhi’s outstanding shares. In March 2012, Valhi announced a 3-for-1 split of its common stock. The distribution of the additional Valhi shares is subject to certain customary regulatory approvals and is expected to occur on the close of business on May 10, 2012. Valhi’s stock split will have no impact on our financial statements or our ownership interest. Additionally, we held approximately 0.5% of NL’s outstanding common stock and 0.3% of Kronos’ outstanding common stock at March 31, 2012.

Restrictions and other – Our credit facilities contain certain restrictive covenants customary in lending transactions of this type. In some cases, we are required to maintain certain financial ratios, such as a fixed charge coverage ratio. We are in compliance with all of our debt covenants at March 31, 2012. We believe we will be able to comply with the financial covenants contained in each of our credit facilities until maturity of such facilities; however, if future operating results differ materially from our expectations, we may be unable to maintain compliance.

Note 11 – Other operating and non-operating income

In August 2009, we filed a claim in the bankruptcy proceedings of Tronox Incorporated, which operates a manufacturing site adjacent to our Henderson, Nevada plant site. In our claim, we asserted that Tronox’s operations at its manufacturing site contribute to the groundwater contamination at our site discussed in Note 13, and that Tronox should therefore be responsible for reimbursing us for a portion of the cost of our remediation activities. In February 2011, Tronox emerged from bankruptcy upon the effectiveness of their plan of reorganization. As part of the Tronox plan of reorganization, in February 2011 we received (i) 49,963 shares of common stock of the reorganized Tronox and (ii) an additional 46,617 shares of such common stock that we purchased for an aggregate of $1.3 million in cash pursuant to the exercise of our right to participate in a Tronox common stock rights offering, in both cases in satisfaction of our claim. The aggregate fair value of the consideration we received in February 2011 upon Tronox’s emergence from bankruptcy, using the over-the-counter quoted market price of such common stock on the date Tronox’s plan of reorganization became effective (a level 2 input in the fair value hierarchy), was $10.6 million ($0.04 per diluted share, net of income taxes) and is included in other operating income. Subsequently, in March 2011 we sold all of our shares of Tronox common stock in an over-the-counter market transaction and realized a gain of $1.3 million which is included in other non-operating expense.

Note 13 – Commitments and contingencies

Environmental matters. As a result of Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) inspections, in April 2009 the EPA issued a Notice of Violation (“Notice”) to us alleging that we violated certain provisions of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and the Toxic Substances Control Act (“TSCA”) at our Henderson plant. We responded to the EPA and are currently in discussions with them concerning the nature and extent of required follow-up testing and potential remediation that may be required. In addition, we are currently performing work in accordance with an approved plan to address certain matters raised in the Notice.

In May 2010, the EPA notified us alleging two unrelated violations of the recordkeeping and reporting requirements of TSCA at our Henderson plant and initiated an investigation of our Morgantown plant under these provisions of TSCA. In June 2010, with EPA approval, we conducted a voluntary self-audit of TSCA compliance at all of our U.S. facilities and disclosed the results of the self-audit to the EPA, including our findings with respect to areas of non-compliance. We do not expect the consequences of such non-compliance to have a material effect on our results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.

As part of our continuing environmental assessment with respect to our plant site in Henderson, in 2008 we completed and submitted to the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection (“NDEP”) a Remedial Alternative Study (“RAS”) with respect to the groundwater located beneath the plant site. The RAS, which was submitted pursuant to an existing agreement between the NDEP and us, addressed the presence of certain contaminants in the plant site groundwater that require remediation. The NDEP completed its review of the RAS and our proposed remedial alternatives, and the NDEP issued its record of decision in February 2009, which selected our preferred groundwater remedial alternative action plan. We commenced implementation of the plan in 2009. In connection with our implementation of the plan, which may be subject to change as remediation proceeds, we are undertaking soil remediation to address source areas associated with conveyance ditches previously used by several companies in the BMI complex, the cost of which is covered by insurance.

We had $2.3 million accrued at March 31, 2012 for remediation activities anticipated at our Henderson plant site, including amounts accrued at the lower end of the range of estimated costs for the groundwater remedial action plan selected by the NDEP in its record of decision and for additional soil remediation. We will continue evaluating alternative methods and timing for all of our remediation activities, and if necessary, we may revise our estimated costs in the future. We estimate the upper end of the range of reasonably possible costs related to all of our environmental matters, in excess of our existing accrual, to be approximately $2.4 million. We expect these estimated costs to be incurred over a remediation period of at least five years.

Legal proceedings. We record liabilities related to legal proceedings when estimated costs are probable and reasonably estimable. Such accruals are adjusted as further information becomes available or circumstances change. Estimated future costs are not discounted to their present value. It is not possible to estimate the range of costs for certain matters. No assurance can be given that actual costs will not exceed accrued amounts or that costs will not be incurred with respect to matters as to which no problem is currently known or where no estimate can presently be made. Further, additional legal proceedings may arise in the future.

In November 2011, a purported shareholder derivative lawsuit was filed in Delaware Chancery court by one of our stockholders (Louisiana Municipal Police Retirement System v. Harold C. Simmons, et al. (Delaware Chancery Court C.A. No. 7059-CS) (“LAMPERS”)) and names each of the current members of our Board of Directors as defendants and us as a nominal defendant. The lawsuit alleges Mr. Simmons, who is deemed to be a controlling shareholder, caused us to enter into related party transactions with affiliated companies for which Mr. Simmons is also deemed to control that are unfair to us. The lawsuit alleges each of the directors breached their fiduciary duties to us and the minority stockholders. The plaintiff seeks unspecified damages, costs and attorneys fees. The defendants have filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit for plaintiff’s failure to make demand upon our directors to consider the merits of plaintiff’s claim. The plaintiff filed an amended complaint in the lawsuit, and the defendants intend to refile their motion to dismiss.

In December 2011, a similar purported shareholder derivative lawsuit was filed in federal court in the Northern District of Texas by another TIMET stockholder (Bert Bauman v. Harold C. Simmons, et al. (United States District Court, Northern District of Texas Case No. 3:11-CV-3607)) and names as defendants each of the current members of our Board of Directors, our current Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officers and Contran Corporation, and us as a nominal defendant. As with the LAMPERS action, the Bauman lawsuit alleges Mr. Simmons caused us to enter into related party transactions with affiliates that are unfair to us. The action brings claims for breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment and waste of corporate assets. The action also claims the director defendants violated U.S. securities laws by failing to properly disclose the related party transactions in our proxy statement. Plaintiff seeks unspecified damages, costs and attorneys fees, disgorgement of profits or benefits, if any, obtained by defendants and various equitable measures, including additional corporate governance and oversight procedures. The defendants also have filed a motion to dismiss this lawsuit for plaintiff’s failure to make demand upon our directors to consider the merits of plaintiff’s claim.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Quarterly Report”) that are not historical facts, including, but not limited to, statements found in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (“MD&A”), are forward-looking statements that represent management’s beliefs and assumptions based on currently available information. Forward-looking statements can generally be identified by the use of words such as “believes,” “intends,” “may,” “will,” “looks,” “should,” “could,” “anticipates,” “expects” or comparable terminology or by discussions of strategies or trends. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, we do not know if these expectations will prove to be correct. Such statements by their nature involve substantial risks and uncertainties that could significantly affect expected results. Actual future results could differ materially from those described in such forward-looking statements, and we disclaim any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are the risks and uncertainties discussed in this Quarterly Report, including risks and uncertainties in those portions referenced above and those described from time to time in our other filings with the SEC which include, but are not limited to:

 

   

the cyclicality of the commercial aerospace industry;

 

   

the performance of our customers, our vendors and us under our long-term agreements;

 

   

the existence, amendment or renewal of certain long-term agreements;

 

   

the difficulty in forecasting demand for titanium products;

 

   

global economic, financial and political conditions;

 

   

global production capacity for titanium;

 

   

changes in product pricing and costs;

 

   

the impact of long-term contracts with vendors on our ability to reduce or increase supply;

 

   

the possibility of labor disruptions;

 

   

fluctuations in currency exchange rates;

 

   

fluctuations in the market price of marketable securities;

 

   

uncertainties associated with new product or new market development;

 

   

the availability of raw materials and services;

 

   

changes in raw material prices and other operating costs (including energy costs);

 

   

possible disruption of business or increases in the cost of doing business resulting from terrorist activities or global conflicts;

 

   

possible disruption of business or increases in the cost of doing business resulting from natural disasters or other accidents impacting us, our customers or our vendors;

 

   

competitive products and strategies; and

 

   

other risks and uncertainties.

Should one or more of these risks materialize (or the consequences of such a development worsen), or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from those forecasted or expected.

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report and with our Consolidated Financial Statements and the information under the heading “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” which are included in our 2011 Annual Report.

SUMMARY

General overview. We are a vertically integrated producer of titanium sponge, melted products and a variety of mill products for commercial aerospace, military, industrial and other applications. We are one of the world’s leading producers of titanium melted products (ingot, electrode and slab) and mill products (billet, bar, plate, sheet and strip). We are the only producer with major titanium production facilities in both the United States and Europe, the world’s principal markets for titanium.

Net sales. Our net sales were $276.7 million for the first quarter of 2012 compared to net sales of $252.0 million for the first quarter of 2011. The 10% increase in net sales was principally the result of increased average selling prices and product shipment volume for our mill products during the first quarter of 2012, reflecting a continuation of strong demand for titanium products within the commercial aerospace sector. The increases in the average selling prices for our mill products in the first quarter of 2012 were principally driven by annual adjustments under certain of our long-term agreements.

Gross margin. For the first quarter of 2012, our gross margin was $58.4 million, a 21% increase as compared to $48.2 million for the first quarter of 2011, reflecting higher selling prices, primarily on our mill products.

Operating income. Our operating income for the first quarter of 2012 was $42.1 million compared to $45.0 million during the first quarter of 2011, reflecting an increase in gross margin during the 2012 period offset by lower other operating income due to a first quarter 2011 $10.6 million gain on settlement of a claim to recover certain groundwater remediation costs attributable to a third-party facility adjoining one of our plant sites.

Table of Contents

Income taxes. Our effective income tax rate was 33% for the first quarter of 2012 compared to 34% for the same period in 2011. We operate in multiple tax jurisdictions, and as a result, the geographic mix of our pre-tax income or loss can impact our overall effective tax rate. Our effective rates in the first quarters of 2012 and 2011 were lower than the U.S. statutory rate primarily due to the effects of (i) the positive impact of a portion of our earnings being generated in lower tax rate jurisdictions and (ii) the positive impact of the domestic production activities deduction.

European operations

We have substantial operations located in the United Kingdom, France and Italy. Our sales originating in Europe were approximately 42% for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 39% for the same period of 2011, a portion of which were denominated in foreign currency, principally the British pound sterling or the euro. Certain raw material costs, principally purchases of titanium sponge and alloys for our European operations, are denominated in U.S. dollars, while labor and other production costs are primarily denominated in local currencies. The functional currencies of our European subsidiaries are those of their respective countries. Our European operations may incur borrowings denominated in U.S. dollars or in their respective functional currencies. Our export sales from the U.S. are denominated in U.S. dollars and are not subject to currency exchange rate fluctuations. We do not use currency contracts to hedge our currency exposures.

The translated U.S. dollar value of our foreign sales and operating results are subject to currency exchange rate fluctuations which may favorably or adversely impact reported earnings and may affect the comparability of period-to-period operating results. By applying the exchange rates prevailing during the prior year period to our local currency results of operations for the current year period, the translation impact of currency rate fluctuations can be estimated. The U.S. dollar strengthened against the British pound and euro in the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the corresponding period in 2011. These fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates had the following effects on our sales and operating income:

Outlook

Our operating results and product deliveries during the first quarter of the year reflect continued strong sales order activity in the commercial aerospace supply chain in support of the industry’s estimated timelines for fleet replacement and commercial aircraft production. Increased prices under certain customer long-term agreements and the continued benefit of ongoing initiatives to improve operating efficiencies in our manufacturing processes contributed to improved gross margins over the first quarter of 2011.

The continued development and production of next generation aircraft, combined with the resurgence in orders for recently reintroduced legacy models with new, fuel-efficient engines and a strong original equipment manufacturer order backlog, are indicators that our industry has entered the sustained growth period forecasted by various industry experts. If the industry’s estimated timelines for fleet replacement and commercial aircraft production are met, we anticipate production rates throughout the commercial aerospace supply chain will continue to be strong during the next year and accelerate over the next several years. Projected aircraft deliveries over a longer time horizon are also expected to remain strong as fuel efficiency and expansion of the global fleet in developing areas, such as Asia, the Middle East and South America, are expected to support future demand. Based on current industry dynamics, we expect continued strong commercial aerospace mill product deliveries for the remainder of the year and foreseeable future and believe that our manufacturing flexibility and efficiencies will allow us to largely mitigate the impact of increasing raw material costs for the rest of 2012.

Table of Contents

We continue to enhance our ability to meet our current and prospective customers’ needs and strengthen our position as a trusted supplier in markets where technical ability and precision are critical. We have been successful over the past several years in establishing significant manufacturing and raw material flexibility and cost efficiencies throughout our manufacturing processes and together with the benefit of our long-term customer agreements, believe these core strengths will serve us well in the current environment of strong demand. Our fiscal discipline and industry expertise have allowed us to manage our production rates and costs effectively while investing capital conservatively and maintaining a strong balance sheet. We believe our financial strength and operating flexibility position us to take advantage of opportunities to strengthen and expand our presence in key markets.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Our consolidated cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2012 are presented below. The following should be read in conjunction with our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto.

Operating activities. Cash flow from operations is a primary source of our liquidity. Changes in pricing, production volume and customer demand, among other things, could significantly affect our liquidity. Trends in cash flows from operating activities, excluding changes in assets and liabilities, have generally been similar to the trends in operating income. Changes in assets and liabilities result primarily from the timing of production, sales and purchases. Changes in assets and liabilities tend to even out over time. However, period to period relative changes in assets and liabilities can significantly affect the comparability of cash flows from operating activities. Our cash from operating activities decreased $27.3 million, from $6.2 million used during the first three months of 2011 to $33.5 million used in the first three months of 2012 primarily due to the net effects of the following factors:

 

   

increased operating income in 2012 of $7.7 million (excluding the impact of the $10.6 million in noncash settlement received from Tronox during 2011 discussed in Note 11 to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements) and

 

   

a higher net use of cash from the relative changes in our receivables, inventories, payables and accruals in 2012 of $33.3 million primarily resulting from increased inventory levels resulting from our higher production levels, higher cost of raw materials (primarily feedstock ore and purchased titanium sponge) and decreases in payables and accrued liabilities associated with the timing of payments.

Relative changes in working capital can have significant effects on cash flows from operating activities. As shown below, our average days sales outstanding (“DSO”) increased from December 31, 2011 to March 31, 2012. The increase in our DSO was principally the result of an increase in receivables relating to strong sales in the first three months of 2012 and the timing of collection of those receivables.

As shown below, our average number of days sales in inventory (“DSI”) increased from December 31, 2011 to March 31, 2012. The overall increase in average DSI was primarily the result of the higher production volumes and higher cost of raw materials. Based on our sales order backlog and outlook for inventory requirements, we expect to deploy additional working capital to maintain appropriate inventory levels in response to improving customer demand trends.

Investing activities. Cash flows from our investing activities increased from $196.6 million used in the first three months of 2011 to $8.5 million provided by in the first three months of 2012 primarily due to the net effects of the following factors:

 

   

Capital expenditures of $7.6 million during the first three months of 2011 and $9.7 million in the same period of 2012;

 

   

Net purchases of mutual funds and other securities of $192.7 million in the first quarter of 2011 and a nominal amount of sales in the first quarter of 2012;

 

   

Net repayments of $1.4 million from Contran during the first quarter of 2011 and $13.3 million during the first quarter of 2012 pursuant to an unsecured revolving credit facility; and

 

   

Repayments of $4.3 million from Compx during the first quarter of 2011 and $1.0 million during the first quarter of 2012 pursuant to a promissory note receivable.

Financing activities. We had the following significant items included in our cash flows from financing activities:

 

   

Net proceeds from borrowings of $29.0 million under our new U.S. credit facility entered into in the first quarter of 2012 and

 

   

Payments of dividends on our common stock of $13.1 million in the first quarter of 2012 as compared to no dividends paid in the first quarter of 2011.

Future cash requirements

Liquidity. Our primary sources of liquidity on an ongoing basis are our cash flow from operating activities and borrowings under various credit facilities. We generally use these amounts to (i) fund capital expenditures, (ii) repay indebtedness incurred primarily for working capital purposes and (iii) provide for the payment of dividends. From time-to-time we will incur indebtedness, generally to (i) fund short-term working capital needs, (ii) refinance existing indebtedness, (iii) make investments in marketable and other securities (including the acquisition of securities issued by our subsidiaries and affiliates) or (iv) fund major capital expenditures or the acquisition of other assets outside the ordinary course of business.

We routinely evaluate our liquidity requirements, capital needs and availability of resources in view of, among other things, our alternative uses of capital, debt service requirements, the cost of debt and equity capital and estimated future operating cash flows. As a result of this process, we have in the past, or in light of our current outlook, may in the future, seek to raise additional capital, modify our common and preferred dividend policies, restructure ownership interests, incur, refinance or restructure indebtedness, repurchase shares of common stock, sell assets, or take a combination of such steps or other steps to increase or manage our liquidity and capital resources. In the normal course of business, we investigate, evaluate, discuss and engage in acquisition, joint venture, strategic relationship and other business combination opportunities in the titanium, specialty metal and other industries. In the event of any future acquisition or joint venture opportunities, we may consider using then-available liquidity, issuing equity securities or incurring indebtedness.

At March 31, 2012, we had aggregate cash and cash equivalents of $39.4 million, and we had borrowing availability under our existing credit facilities of $218.9 million. We could borrow all such available amounts without violating our existing debt covenants. Our non-U.S. subsidiaries held $38.0 million of our aggregate cash and cash equivalents. We entered into a $200 million U.S. revolving credit facility in February 2012 maturing in February 2017. Our U.K. credit facilities mature in August 2012. We are in compliance with all of our debt covenants at March 31, 2012. Based upon our expectations of our operating performance, the anticipated demands on our cash resources, borrowing availability under our U.S. and European credit facilities and anticipated borrowing capacity after the maturity of these credit facilities, we expect to have sufficient liquidity to meet our obligations for the short-term (defined as the next twelve-month period) and our long-term obligations.

Capital expenditures. We currently estimate we will invest a total of approximately $115 million to $125 million for capital expenditures during 2012. Our planned capital expenditures include projects to drive increased operating efficiency, properly maintain equipment and expand the productive capacity at our melting facilities, including a project we have commissioned at our facility in Morgantown, Pennsylvania, currently expected to be completed in 2013. As part of our expansion plans, we are implementing plasma melting technology to enhance our capabilities to meet the growing demand for complex, high-temperature alloys utilized more extensively in new generation aircraft engines. Capital spending for 2012 is expected to be funded by cash flows from operating activities or existing cash resources and available credit facilities.

We continue to evaluate additional opportunities to improve or augment productive assets including capital projects, acquisitions or other investments which, if consummated, any required funding would be provided by existing cash resources or borrowings under our U.S. and European credit facilities.

Contractual commitments. There have been no material changes to our contractual commitments discussed in our 2011 Annual Report.

Off-balance sheet arrangements. There have been no material changes to our off-balance sheet arrangements discussed in our 2011 Annual Report.

Critical accounting policies. For a discussion of our critical accounting policies, refer to Part I, Item 7 - “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” in our 2011 Annual Report. There have been no changes in our critical accounting policies during the first three months of 2012.

Affiliate transactions. Corporations that may be deemed to be controlled by or affiliated with Mr. Simmons sometimes engage in (i) intercorporate transactions such as guarantees, management and expense sharing arrangements, shared fee arrangements, joint ventures, partnerships, loans, options, advances of funds on open account, and sales, leases and exchanges of assets, including securities issued by both related and unrelated parties, and (ii) common investment and acquisition strategies, business combinations, reorganizations, recapitalizations, securities repurchases, and purchases and sales (and other acquisitions and dispositions) of subsidiaries, divisions or other business units, which transactions have involved both related and unrelated parties and have included transactions which resulted in the acquisition by one related party of a publicly-held minority equity interest in another related party. We continuously consider, review and evaluate such transactions, and understand that Contran and related entities consider, review and evaluate such transactions. Depending upon the business, tax and other objectives then relevant, it is possible that we might be a party to one or more such transactions in the future. See Notes 4 and 11 to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
