For the second quarter of 2014, Methanex reported Adjusted EBITDA of $160 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $255 million reported in the first quarter of 2014 and $157 million reported in the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Adjusted net income was $91 million ($0.94 per share on a diluted basis) in the second quarter of 2014, compared to Adjusted net income of $160 million ($1.65 per share on a diluted basis) for the first quarter of 2014 and $99 million ($1.02 per share on a diluted basis) for the second quarter of 2013. 
 
John Floren, President and CEO of Methanex commented, "Methanol prices are lower in Q2 2014 compared to Q1 2014, resulting in lower Q2 earnings as compared to the first quarter. We believe pricing is now stabilizing at current levels." Mr. Floren added, "At these methanol prices, Methanex continues to generate strong EBITDA and cash flows. The methanol industry environment remains favourable, with steady demand and limited new supply additions expected in the near to medium term." 
 
Mr. Floren added, "We are making excellent progress on the relocation of two of our Chile plants to Geismar, Louisiana, and are targeting methanol production from our Geismar 1 facility in late 2014 and Geismar 2 in early 2016. Each of these plants will add an incremental one million tonnes to our operating capacity." 
 
"In the second quarter we also reached a settlement agreement with Total Austral S.A. of Argentina and received a lump sum payment of US$42 million, or $27 million net of tax, to terminate their obligations under their former long-term natural gas supply agreement with Methanex in Chile. This payment is not included in our Q2 2014 Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted net income but has been recorded in Q2 2014 Net income attributable to Methanex shareholders." 
 
"During the quarter, we returned over $100 million in cash to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases. With over $600 million of cash on hand, an undrawn credit facility, robust balance sheet, and strong cash flow generation, we are well positioned to meet our financial commitments, invest to grow the Company and return excess cash to shareholders through dividends and our share buyback program." 
 
Methanex is a Vancouver-based, publicly traded company and is the world's largest producer and supplier of methanol to major international markets.
