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.
