ENERGY SURCHARGE

EUROPE >ALICANTE, SPAIN

31 March 2015

Dear Customer:

The recent evolution of freight, packaging and raw materials have impacted Imerys Filtration & Performance Additives Europe business dramatically. In addition the price of global hydrocarbon energy in general and more particularly fuel oil and gas in Europe has increased to unprecedented levels. The rise in energy cost has had a significant impact on the production costs of our Celite plant in Alicante Spain. . As a result, effective April 1st, 2011, we have no alternative but to implement an energy surcharge which will appear as a separate line item on customer invoices.

The surcharge will apply to both calcined and non calcined grades with respect to their energy demand.

Imerys Filtration & Performance Additives Europe will adjust the surcharge based on the previous 6-month average of Brent price, based on the following mechanisms:

 

Brent $bbl
ESC (€/metric tonne)
Last 6 month average
Calcined
Natural
80 - 90

The Energy Surcharges for the 2nd quarter of 2015 will be 0,00 €/tonne for calcined grades and 0,00 €/tonne for natural grades.

Any change in the surcharge will become effective at the beginning of each quarter..

We at Imerys Filtration & Performance Additives Europe appreciate your understanding during these times and look forward to your continued support.
