Solutia emerges strongly from Chapter 11

Solutia Inc emerged from Chapter 11 reorganization. "Solutia has emerged as a well-positioned specialty chemicals and performance materials company with market-leading global positions and a diverse portfolio of high potential businesses," said Jeffry N. Quinn, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

"We believe we are a stronger, healthier and more competitive company than at any point in our history. Over the past four years, we have transformed our portfolio through strategic acquisitions, internal investments, asset dispositions, and the re-deployment of significant nylon assets to higher-value uses."

During its time in Chapter 11, Solutia has diversified from both an end-market and a geographic perspective. In 2007, the company's net sales from outside the United States were 55% of the total revenue, compared to 39% in 2003. The increase has been driven primarily by Solutia's Asian growth strategy, as well as significant growth in Europe.

"During this period, we have made great strides in improving our financial position by reducing legacy liabilities, enhancing and focusing the business portfolio and delivering strong revenue and operating earnings growth and momentum," said James M. Sullivan, senior vice president and chief financial officer.

"With a strong balance sheet and more than 50% of our portfolio growing at greater than two times global GDP, we believe we are positioned to deliver increased shareholder value."
