08:29 EDTCHMTChemtura announces restructuring, cost reduction plan
Chemtura announced a restructuring plan to reduce manufacturing conversion costs by approximately $50M, or about 10% annually, eliminate approximately $15M of annual stranded costs arising from the previously announced sale of the Chemtura AgroSolutions business, and reduce selling, general and administrative costs by at least $12M annually. Despite the success of many of Chemtura's improvement initiatives, the Company faces continuing weak demand conditions in some of the market applications it serves, as well as excess capacity in bromine and certain organometallics. While the company expects the bromine industry and electronics market to recover and grow to new heights, that growth may not occur in the coming year. The company expects to incur approximately $37M in cash costs to implement the restructuring plan, recording the majority of this expense in 4Q14 and 1Q15. The cash expenditures associated with these actions will continue into 3Q15. The company anticipates that the full run rate of the manufacturing and SG&A savings will be embedded in its performance by the third quarter of 2015, with annual savings of approximately $50M for the calendar year of 2015. Of the $15M of annual stranded costs, the company anticipates having eliminated them by 2Q15 with approximately $3M being incurred in the 1Q15.

06:13 EDTRIGTransocean says 'market pause' has evolved into 'cyclical downturn'
On its Q3 earnings conference call, Transocean CEO Steve Newman said that the "market pause" has evolved into a "cycnical downturn." He commented that the industry has been through these downturns before and "Transocean is well positioned to managed through this one." Newman also said the decline in oil prices observed over the last three months could "temporarily exacerbate" the offshore rig supply imbalance that has already resulted in day rate and utilization pressures and potentially delay the cyclical recovery. Newman said his long-term bullish view of offshore drilling remains "intact."
