Hexion Specialty continues to work closely with Huntsman

Hexion Specialty Chemicals announced that both it and Huntsman Corporation have agreed to allow additional time for the Federal Trade Commission to review the proposed merger of the two companies.

As a result, the merger is not expected to close before May 3. To accommodate the extension, Hexion has also given notice to Huntsman that on April 5, it will exercise its option to extend the Termination Date under the Merger Agreement for 90 days, and thus, if the conditions to Hexion's extension right are met on April 5, the termination date under the Merger Agreement will be extended until July 4, 2008.

"This extension is not unusual in a transaction of this size involving numerous global locations," said Craig O. Morrison, Hexion's Chairman and CEO. "We are fully cooperating with regulatory agencies and will continue to work closely with Huntsman and the agencies in order to obtain the regulatory approvals required to complete the merger."

Hexion announced on July 12, 2007, that it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Huntsman Corporation in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $10.6 billion, including the assumption of debt.

The transaction was approved by Huntsman shareholders on October 16, 2007 and is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approval in the U.S. and several other countries.
