The Dow Chemical Company and Rohm and Haas Company announced that the companies have reached an agreement to close Dow's previously announced acquisition of Rohm and Haas on April 1, 2009. Agreement resolves the litigation initiated by Rohm and Haas against Dow on January 26, 2009 with a resolution that is beneficial for each party.

The settlement agreement involves a new substantial equity investment in Dow of $2.5 billion and at Dow's option an additional $500 million of equity, at the closing of the merger by the two largest shareholders of Rohm and Haas, one of which is the Haas Family Trusts.The other shareholders will receive the original cash consideration at the closing.

"The restructuring of the terms of the transaction allows Dow to maintain financial flexibility as we proceed to implement our strategy in a way that realizes the original promise of this acquisition," said Andrew N. Liveris, Dow Chairman and CEO.

"By reaching agreement on the terms for this transaction, we have delivered excellent value to Rohm and Haas shareholders," said Rohm and Haas Chairman and CEO, Raj L. Gupta.

At the request of both parties, The Delaware Chancery Court has entered an order providing that Dow will close the merger no later than April 1, 2009 conditioned only on the funding by the two major shareholders and on Rohm and Haas's compliance in all material respects with its interim operating covenants after March 9, 2009.
