Huntsman Corporation announced it has received the $325 million termination fee provided for in the Merger Agreement between Huntsman and Hexion Specialty Chemicals, Inc. ("Hexion"). Hexion committed to pay the termination fee in connection with the previously announced $1 billion settlement between Huntsman and Hexion, Apollo Management, L.P.

Huntsman expects to receive another $250 million payment from Apollo affiliates and a further $250 million payment upon issuance of 10 year Huntsman convertible notes to Apollo on or before December 31, 2008. The remaining $175 million of payments must be made on or before March 31, 2009.

Huntsman's President and CEO Peter R. Huntsman stated, "Receipt of these proceeds will enhance the strength of Huntsman's balance sheet and better position our company to prosper during the current turbulence in the global economy."
