Valuation Firm declares Hexion-Huntsman merger solvent

25
Oct '08
Huntsman Corporation announced it has received a written opinion from American Appraisal, a leading valuation firm, which has concluded that the company to be formed from the pending merger of Hexion Specialty Chemicals, Inc. and Huntsman Corporation would be solvent.

Specifically, American Appraisal found that the combined Hexion-Huntsman company would satisfy all of the solvency tests commonly used in transactions of this nature.
Huntsman's President and CEO, Peter R. Huntsman,

stated, "American Appraisal is a well regarded and highly qualified valuation firm. As Vice Chancellor Lamb noted in his decision following the Delaware trial, Credit Suisse testified during the trial that they are prepared to fund their commitment 'if a compliant solvency certificate can be provided' at the closing. We plan to do so, and with an independent opinion to which no reasonable lender, acting in good faith, could object."

Huntsman expects to request an updated solvency opinion from American Appraisal for delivery on the closing date, to satisfy the condition contained in Hexion's agreement with affiliates of Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank.
