Tronox, a chemical company that recently moved its headquarters from Oklahoma City to Connecticut, began trading its class A shares on the New York Stock Exchange on Monday. The listing follows Tronox's acquisition last week of Exxaro Resources Limited's mineral sands business. “We are delighted to list on the New York Stock Exchange and begin an exciting new chapter for our company,” said Tom Casey, chairman and CEO of Tronox Limited. Tronox is one of the largest producers of whitening pigments used in many common products.

SBA disaster aid available

Low-interest federal disaster loans are available to certain private, nonprofit organizations in Oklahoma after President Barack Obama's federal disaster declaration for Public Assistance as a result of the severe storms of April 28-May 1. Only private nonprofit organizations that provide essential government services are eligible for assistance. The disaster declaration makes Small Business Administration assistance available in Alfalfa, Craig, Grant, Kay and Nowata counties. Organizations should begin the process by registering with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FEMA will determine whether the group qualifies to immediately apply for a grant from FEMA's public assistance program. Other eligible organizations will be referred to the SBA for a low-interest disaster loan to cover property damages. Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application at disasterloan.sba.gov/ela. Disaster loan information and applications are also available by calling (800) 659-2955, emailing disastercustomerservice@sba.gov. The filing deadline to return applications for property damage is Aug. 13.
