Recent Highlights

• On January 11, 2010, we repurchased all of our outstanding 7% convertible notes due 2018 for approximately $382 million. As these notes were convertible into approximately 31.8 million shares of common stock, our fully diluted outstanding share count was reduced to approximately 240 million shares.

Peter R. Huntsman, our President and CEO, stated:

"Results from our most recent fourth quarter are very encouraging; we have seen our business results improve from last year when we reported $51 million of Adjusted EBITDA to this year when we reported $165 million. During 2009, we eliminated more than $150 million of costs from our business and reduced working capital needsby nearly $500 million. Despite the challenging economic conditions in 2009, we were able to maintain consistent margins on a per unit basis throughout our business. During the fourth quarter of 2009 our volumes increased 13 percent compared to the prior year, but still fell short of normalized demand. As demand continues to improve, we expect to see improved earnings."

He added, "We look forward to improving market conditions in 2010. We have a number of innovative products in our pipeline that address energy concerns that will provide long term benefits. I expect our operational discipline, improving global market conditions and stronger capacity utilization to further enhance our earnings potential."
