The company is the world's third largest producer of the said pigment, which is used as a white pigment in coatings. Prices will be raised 10 cents per pound in North America while one ton of the pigment will cost $300 more in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific Region. With this, the company's non-pigment businesses have been projected to have a record year in 2013. Meanwhile, Huntsman recently reported its Q4 2012 financial results, posting earnings of 24 cents per share and revenue of $2.62 million. Both were lower numbers when compared year over year, but met analyst expectations. This year, the company expects to spend roughly $450 million on capital expenditures, while pension expenses are seen to rise by around $25 million in 2013. Adjusted effective tax rate is forecast to be 35%, higher than 30% in 2012.

Management says wheat has been lagging productivity-wise due to a lack of genetic modification efforts to boost yields, and would be a great opportunity for the company to protect intellectual property in wheat hybrids than the inbred varieties currently available, as hybrid seed saved from a prior harvest produce less grain. Meanwhile, the company also announced the commercialization of its two advanced renewable fuels: cellulosic ethanol, made from agricultural residues and dedicated energy crops, and biobutanol, a high-performance "drop in" fuel fully compatible with the current fuel and vehicle systems.

The investment bank said the company is meeting its 5-year financial targets in early 2011, with 6% organic growth and EBITDA margin +80 bps to 11.7% in 2012, with the potential of the transformative $405MM Forbo acquisition to meet 2015 targets. The bank also said it was previously skeptical with the proposed plan, as organic sales growth of 5-8% seemed unreachable given volumes had declined in 7 of the prior 10 years, as well as the 15% EBITDA margin target appeared aspirational vis-à-vis the 10.9% EBITDA margin in 2010. Meanwhile, the company recently paid out a dividend of 8 cents per share on February 21 this year.
