Financial report summary

  • Industry capacity utilization and competition from other specialty chemical companies may adversely impact our business.
  • Environmental regulations and restrictions that affect the carbon black industry impose constraints on our operations, and could threaten our competitive position and increase our operating costs, which may adversely impact our business and results of operations.
  • We may be exposed to certain regulatory and financial risks related to climate change developments and an increased focus on carbon neutrality, which may adversely affect our business and results of operations, and increased pressures and adverse publicity about potential impacts on climate change by us or other companies in our industry could harm our reputation.
  • Volatility in the price and availability of raw materials and energy could impact our margins and working capital.
  • We are exposed to political or country risk inherent in doing business in some countries.
  • As a chemical manufacturing company, our operations are subject to operational risks and have the potential to cause environmental or other damage as well as personal injury, or disrupt our ability to supply our customers, any of which could adversely affect our business, results of operations and cash flows.
  • Our products are subject to extensive safety, health and environmental requirements, which could impair our ability to manufacture and sell certain products.
  • Information technology systems failures, data security breaches, cybersecurity attacks or network disruptions could compromise our information, disrupt our operations and expose us to liability, which may adversely impact our operations.
  • Natural disasters and severe weather events could affect our operations and financial results.
  • We may not be successful achieving our growth expectations from new products, new applications and technology developments, and money we spend on these efforts may not result in an increase in revenues or profits commensurate with our investment.
  • The continued protection of our patents, trade secrets and other proprietary intellectual property rights are important to our success.
  • Any failure to realize benefits from acquisitions, alliances or joint ventures or to achieve our portfolio management objectives could adversely affect future financial results.
  • Plant capacity expansions and site development projects may impact existing plant operations, be delayed and/or not achieve the expected benefits.
  • Negative or uncertain worldwide or regional economic conditions or trade relations may adversely impact our business.
  • Litigation or legal proceedings could expose us to significant liabilities and thus negatively affect our financial results.
  • Our tax rate is dependent upon a number of factors, a change in any of which could impact our future tax rates and net income.
  • We have entered into a number of derivative contracts with financial counterparties. The effectiveness of these contracts is dependent on the ability of these financial counterparties to perform their obligations and their nonperformance could harm our financial condition.
Management Discussion
  • The Company has two reportable segments: Reinforcement Materials and Performance Chemicals. The Company’s former Purification Solutions business was a separate reporting segment prior to divestiture in the second quarter of fiscal 2022. Cabot is also organized for operational purposes into three geographic regions: the Americas; Europe, Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”); and Asia Pacific. The discussion of our results of operations for the periods presented reflects these structures.
  • Our analysis of our financial condition and operating results should be read with our consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes.
  • When discussing our results of operations, we use several terms as described below.
