ENERGY SURCHARGE

MEXICO

 

1 February 2017

Dear Valued Customer:

The rise in energy prices has had a significant impact on the mining and production costs of our operations. As a result, since April 1, 2008 (or as current price agreements expire), Imerys Diatomita Mexico SA de CV (former Celite Mexicana, S.A. de C.V.) has implemented an Energy Surcharge, subject to any applicable provisions in individual contracts, which will appear as a separate line item on your invoice.

We are adjusting the Energy Surcharge monthly based on the Pemex public price of Diesel and fuel oil versus the base prices of MXN 5.93 for Diesel and MXN 4.98 for fuel oil.

The Energy Surcharge is calculated in the month proceeding the month of implementation. The chart below outlines the Energy Surcharge.

The Energy Surcharge for February 2017 is based on the December 2016 price of MXN 14.45 for Diesel and MXN 4.71 for fuel oil. Reference Pemex calculation details. Any future changes in the Energy Surcharge will become effective the first day of the month.

Effective January 1, 2015, a supplemental charge may be instituted to offset increased processing costs associated with severe weather patterns near our Mexico facility. This additional charge will be expired upon return to standard processing costs.
