NEW YORK, May 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Minerals Technologies Inc. (NYSE:MTX) announced today that it has signed an agreement with PT Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper (IKPP), a subsidiary of Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) to build a 125,000 metric-ton per year satellite precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) plant at its paper mill in Perawang, Indonesia. As part of the agreement, Minerals Technologies will also expand its present satellite PCC facility at the Perawang mill by 40,000 metric tons to 140,000 metric tons. The facility will be operated by PT Sinar Mas Specialty Minerals, an existing joint venture with APP in Indonesia. “We are extremely pleased to expand our relationship with this long-term partner and world-class paper manufacturer through this agreement to build a new satellite and provide additional capacity at the satellite we have had at Perawang since 1997,” said Douglas T. Dietrich, chief executive officer. “This customer is integral to our Asia growth strategy for PCC.” These facilities are scheduled to begin operation in the second quarter of 2018.  Rand Mendez, senior vice president and managing director of Paper PCC, commented further: “APP is an innovative paper company, and we are pleased that they have confirmed the value of our PCC technology in their fine paper grades. Our PCC will be used as a paper filler to improve brightness, opacity and bulk, and to reduce the cost to the papermaker of higher-cost fiber.” PCC is a specialty pigment for filling and coating high-quality paper. By substituting Minerals Technologies' PCC for more expensive wood fiber, customers are able to produce brighter, higher quality paper at lower cost. In 1986, Minerals Technologies originated the satellite concept for making and delivering PCC on-site at paper mills, and the concept was a major factor in revolutionizing papermaking in North America. Today, the company has more than 60 satellite plants in operation or under construction around the world and continues to lead the industry with consistent quality and technical innovation. New York-based Minerals Technologies Inc. is a resource- and technology-based growth company that develops, produces and markets worldwide a broad range of specialty mineral, mineral-based and synthetic mineral products and related systems and services. MTI serves the paper, foundry, steel, construction, environmental, energy, polymer and consumer products industries. The company reported sales of $1.638 billion in 2016.

NEW YORK, May 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Minerals Technologies Inc. (NYSE:MTX) today reported first quarter diluted earnings per share of $1.07, excluding special items.  Reported earnings were $0.97 per share.             “We had a solid first quarter. All of our businesses performed well and we continued to expand the Company’s operating margins,” said Douglas T. Dietrich, Chief Executive Officer. “We saw significant growth across all of our businesses in China this quarter and continue to grow our PCC business throughout Asia with the signing of an agreement for an additional 165,000 tons in Indonesia,” said Mr. Dietrich.             Worldwide net sales in the first quarter were $405.0 million compared with $410.2 million in 2016.  Operating income, as reported, was $61.7 million and represented 15.2 percent of sales, as compared with $57.6 million, or 14.0 percent of sales in the prior year. Consolidated income from operations, excluding special items, grew 6 percent to $63.5 million compared with $60.1 million in the prior year. Operating margins, excluding special items, improved 7 percent to 15.7 percent of sales from 14.7 percent of sales in the prior year as productivity improved 8 percent over last year. During the first quarter, the Company announced the reorganization of its Performance Materials and Construction Technologies businesses into one operating segment – Performance Materials, consisting of five focused product lines to improve customer alignment and to accelerate growth. Sales in the Minerals businesses, which include the Specialty Minerals and Performance Materials segments, increased slightly to $316.1 million.  Operating income for the Minerals businesses was $53.2 million and represented 16.8 percent of sales compared with 17.1 percent of sales in the first quarter of 2016. Sales in the Performance Materials segment increased 6 percent to $169.9 million compared with $159.6 million in the prior year. Sales in the Metalcasting product line increased 11 percent to $66.6 million principally due to higher volumes in China. Basic Minerals sales increased 67 percent due primarily to higher bulk sales of chromite. Household, Personal Care and Specialty Products sales were lower due to lower Fabric Care sales in China.  In addition, Building Materials and Environmental Products sales were lower due to severe weather conditions impacting several large projects in the western United States. Operating income increased 2 percent to $28.8 million and represented 17.0 percent of sales.  The Performance Materials segment provides a wide range of bentonite-based and synthetic materials for industrial and consumer markets and for non-residential construction, environmental remediation and infrastructure projects worldwide. First quarter worldwide sales for the Specialty Minerals segment, which consists of the Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) and Processed Minerals product lines, were $146.2 million. Income from operations for the segment was $24.4 million, and operating margin improved slightly to 16.7 percent of sales. Worldwide sales of PCC, which is used mainly in the manufacturing processes of the paper industry, were $93.4 million compared with $103.2 million in the prior year. The decrease in sales was due to several plant shutdowns which occurred in 2016 and was partially offset by 9 percent higher sales in China. First quarter net sales of Processed Minerals products were $35.8 million, the same level as the prior year.  Ground Calcium Carbonate sales increased 4 percent and Talc sales decreased 5 percent from the prior year. Processed Minerals products are used in the building materials, polymers, ceramics, paints and coatings, glass and other manufacturing industries. The Service-related businesses, which include the Refractories and Energy Services segments, had a strong quarter despite continued weakness in the energy sector. Sales of $88.9 million in the first quarter were 6 percent lower than the same period last year. Operating income for the Service-related businesses, excluding special items, increased 47 percent to $11.2 million in the current year and was 12.6 percent of sales compared with 8.0 percent of sales last year. First quarter sales in the Refractories segment, which provides products and services primarily to the worldwide steel industry, increased 1 percent to $70.2 million compared with $69.2 million in the first quarter of 2016. Higher volumes of Refractories Products and increased equipment sales were partially offset by lower sales of Metallurgical Products. The Refractories segment operating income, excluding special items, increased 33 percent to $9.2 million, and was 13.1 percent of sales compared with 10.0 percent of sales in the prior year. Energy Services segment sales were $18.7 million for the first quarter, a 28-percent decrease from the prior year, primarily due to the exit of certain on-shore service lines in the second quarter of 2016. Operating income, excluding special items, was $2.0 million compared with $0.7 million last year and represented 10.7 percent of sales as compared with 2.7 percent of sales in the prior year. Energy Services offers a range of patented technologies, products and services for off-shore filtration and well testing to the worldwide oil and gas industry. The Company repaid $20 million of its Term Loan debt in the first quarter, for total repayments of $500 million over the past 11 quarters.  Additionally, in the first quarter of 2017, the Company refinanced the floating rate portion of its Term Loan facility, lowering the interest rate by 75 basis points and extending the maturity to 2024. The Company incurred special charges in the quarter related to debt modification costs of $3.9 million and restructuring and acquisition-related integration costs of $1.8 million. The combined effect of these non-recurring items reduced earnings by $0.10 per share. “Our solid first quarter financial performance provides us with a good start to 2017,” said Mr. Dietrich. “We are well-positioned to grow earnings again this year.” Minerals Technologies will host a conference call tomorrow, May 5, 2017 at 11 a.m. The conference call will be broadcast live on the company web site: www.mineralstech.com.

All of our businesses performed well and we continued to expand the Company’s operating margins,” said Douglas T. Dietrich, Chief Executive Officer. “We saw significant growth across all of our businesses in China this quarter and continue to grow our PCC business throughout Asia with the signing of an agreement for an additional 165,000 tons in Indonesia,” said Mr. Dietrich.             Worldwide net sales in the first quarter were $405.0 million compared with $410.2 million in 2016.  Operating income, as reported, was $61.7 million and represented 15.2 percent of sales, as compared with $57.6 million, or 14.0 percent of sales in the prior year. Consolidated income from operations, excluding special items, grew 6 percent to $63.5 million compared with $60.1 million in the prior year. Operating margins, excluding special items, improved 7 percent to 15.7 percent of sales from 14.7 percent of sales in the prior year as productivity improved 8 percent over last year. During the first quarter, the Company announced the reorganization of its Performance Materials and Construction Technologies businesses into one operating segment – Performance Materials, consisting of five focused product lines to improve customer alignment and to accelerate growth. Sales in the Minerals businesses, which include the Specialty Minerals and Performance Materials segments, increased slightly to $316.1 million.  Operating income for the Minerals businesses was $53.2 million and represented 16.8 percent of sales compared with 17.1 percent of sales in the first quarter of 2016. Sales in the Performance Materials segment increased 6 percent to $169.9 million compared with $159.6 million in the prior year. Sales in the Metalcasting product line increased 11 percent to $66.6 million principally due to higher volumes in China. Basic Minerals sales increased 67 percent due primarily to higher bulk sales of chromite. Household, Personal Care and Specialty Products sales were lower due to lower Fabric Care sales in China.  In addition, Building Materials and Environmental Products sales were lower due to severe weather conditions impacting several large projects in the western United States. Operating income increased 2 percent to $28.8 million and represented 17.0 percent of sales.  The Performance Materials segment provides a wide range of bentonite-based and synthetic materials for industrial and consumer markets and for non-residential construction, environmental remediation and infrastructure projects worldwide. First quarter worldwide sales for the Specialty Minerals segment, which consists of the Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) and Processed Minerals product lines, were $146.2 million. Income from operations for the segment was $24.4 million, and operating margin improved slightly to 16.7 percent of sales. Worldwide sales of PCC, which is used mainly in the manufacturing processes of the paper industry, were $93.4 million compared with $103.2 million in the prior year. The decrease in sales was due to several plant shutdowns which occurred in 2016 and was partially offset by 9 percent higher sales in China. First quarter net sales of Processed Minerals products were $35.8 million, the same level as the prior year.  Ground Calcium Carbonate sales increased 4 percent and Talc sales decreased 5 percent from the prior year. Processed Minerals products are used in the building materials, polymers, ceramics, paints and coatings, glass and other manufacturing industries. The Service-related businesses, which include the Refractories and Energy Services segments, had a strong quarter despite continued weakness in the energy sector. Sales of $88.9 million in the first quarter were 6 percent lower than the same period last year. Operating income for the Service-related businesses, excluding special items, increased 47 percent to $11.2 million in the current year and was 12.6 percent of sales compared with 8.0 percent of sales last year. First quarter sales in the Refractories segment, which provides products and services primarily to the worldwide steel industry, increased 1 percent to $70.2 million compared with $69.2 million in the first quarter of 2016. Higher volumes of Refractories Products and increased equipment sales were partially offset by lower sales of Metallurgical Products. The Refractories segment operating income, excluding special items, increased 33 percent to $9.2 million, and was 13.1 percent of sales compared with 10.0 percent of sales in the prior year. Energy Services segment sales were $18.7 million for the first quarter, a 28-percent decrease from the prior year, primarily due to the exit of certain on-shore service lines in the second quarter of 2016. Operating income, excluding special items, was $2.0 million compared with $0.7 million last year and represented 10.7 percent of sales as compared with 2.7 percent of sales in the prior year. Energy Services offers a range of patented technologies, products and services for off-shore filtration and well testing to the worldwide oil and gas industry. The Company repaid $20 million of its Term Loan debt in the first quarter, for total repayments of $500 million over the past 11 quarters.  Additionally, in the first quarter of 2017, the Company refinanced the floating rate portion of its Term Loan facility, lowering the interest rate by 75 basis points and extending the maturity to 2024. The Company incurred special charges in the quarter related to debt modification costs of $3.9 million and restructuring and acquisition-related integration costs of $1.8 million. The combined effect of these non-recurring items reduced earnings by $0.10 per share. “Our solid first quarter financial performance provides us with a good start to 2017,” said Mr. Dietrich. “We are well-positioned to grow earnings again this year.” Minerals Technologies will host a conference call tomorrow, May 5, 2017 at 11 a.m. The conference call will be broadcast live on the company web site: www.mineralstech.com.

Diamond Core Drilling is a process of extracting core samples from the earth. This is an exploratory process to determine the structural strength of mineral composition for potential mining or construction projects. Diamond drilling uses a diamond impregmented drill bit. The drilling bit is coupled to the end of hollow rods. The cutting of solid formation rock drilled by drilling bit is in form of a cylinder. Diamonds used to make diamond core bits varies in size. Diamond size is taken according to micro fine industrial grade. The ratio of metal to diamond used to make bit affects the performance of the bit’s cutting ability in different formations. Bits made from hard steel grade and low diamond count is good for softer highly fractured rock. Bits made of high diamond and softer steel ratio is designed for coring in hard solid rocks. Drill bits consist of certain holes to circulate drilling fluid. The role of circulating fluid is lubrication, cooling and removes cuttings from the hole. Large numbers of exploratory wells are being drilled by exploration companies to take sample of various mineral compositions. The number is expected to increase with the rising energy demand.
