Huntsman Receives Notice That Banks Unwilling To Close Merger Today


The Woodlands, Texas — Huntsman Corporation (“Huntsman”) (NYSE: HUN) announced today that Hexion Specialty Chemicals, Inc. informed Huntsman late last night that Hexion had received correspondence from counsel to Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank that the banks do not believe that the solvency opinion and certificate proposed to be provided meet the condition of the commitment letter and effectively said that as a result the banks do not plan to fund the proposed closing of the merger scheduled for this morning. Accordingly, Huntsman does not expect the merger to close today. Hexion further informed Huntsman that it is working to resolve the banks’ concerns and is still seeking to close the merger. Huntsman will continue to enforce its rights under the Merger Agreement and various court orders and will seek to consummate the merger promptly.
