Tronox to appeal court decision

Tronox commented on the decision by the US District Court granting the US Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) request for a preliminary injunction regarding Tronox’s proposed acquisition of Cristal. The company intends to file a notice of appeal and request an expedited hearing to reverse the Court’s decision so Tronox may proceed with the merger. Tronox will also consider whether to proceed with the divestiture of Cristal’s Ashtabula titanium dioxide production complex in Ohio.
