On June 6, 2013, Chemtura Corporation (Chemtura) announced its Q2 2013 segment performance and its current outlook for the quarter. Craig A. Rogerson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chemtura, commented, "With the first two months of the quarter behind us, we are seeing similar trends in performance to those we saw in the first quarter of 2013. Three of our four segments are performing well and are tracking to deliver comparable results to the second quarter of 2012. However, Industrial Engineered Products continues to face challenging business conditions." The three well-performing segments include Industrial Performance Products, Consumer Products, and Chemtura AgroSolutions. Mr. Rogerson concluded, "With the weakness in Industrial Engineered Products, we now project to fall short of our performance in the second quarter of 2012 on a continuing operations basis.
