Dec '08
Huntsman Corporation today announced it has received $250 million from affiliates of Apollo Management, L.P. ("Apollo") from the issuance of its 10 year convertible notes. The notes were issued pursuant to Huntsman's previously announced settlement agreement with Hexion Specialty Chemicals, Inc. ("Hexion"), Apollo and certain of its affiliates to settle Huntsman's claims against Hexion, Apollo and its affiliates arising in connection with Huntsman's terminated Merger Agreement with Hexion.

The notes, which bear interest at 7% per annum, will be convertible to shares of Huntsman common stock at the holder's option at any time at a conversion price of $7.857 per share, subject to certain anti-dilution adjustments.

On December 19, Huntsman received a $325 million termination fee provided for in the Merger Agreement. Together with the $250 million proceeds received today for the convertible notes and an additional $250 million settlement payment required to be paid to Huntsman by December 31, 2008, Huntsman expects to receive payments from Apollo and its affiliates that total $825 million by year end 2008.

The remaining $175 million of the $1 billion in payments required by the Settlement Agreement must be made to Huntsman on or before March 31, 2009.
