17:22 EDTPGFutureFuel to see adverse impact from early termination of P&G purchase pact
On March 19, FutureFuel (FF) received notice from The Procter & Gamble Company (PG) exercising its right of early termination and advising the company of its intent to terminate, effective December 31, the purchase agreement entered into as of April 1, 2008 between The Procter & Gamble Manufacturing Company, The Procter & Gamble Distributing LLC and Procter & Gamble International Operations SA, as buyer, and FutureFuel, as seller, as amended. P&G indicated that its decision to terminate resulted from its need for flexibility to address declining market trends in the dry laundry additives marketplace. P&G exercised its right to terminate the purchase agreement with at least 270 days prior written notice pursuant to a contractual provision allowing for early termination in the event P&Gís expected annual purchases fell below a certain threshold. The purchase agreement will remain in full force and effect during the notification period, during which time the parties will have the opportunity to negotiate a mutually acceptable alternative. FutureFuel plans to further discuss options for continuing its business relationship with P&G, but there can be no assurance that such efforts will be successful. If no such alternative is reached, the purchase agreement will terminate effective December 31, one year prior to the stated termination date of the purchase agreement. FutureFuelís revenues related to the purchase agreement were reported as $43.93M for FY14. The termination of the purchase agreement is expected to have a significant adverse impact on the companyís revenue, net income and cash flow beginning in FY16. FutureFuel will not incur any early termination penalties as a result of the termination of the purchase agreement.
