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."
