Huntsman Rejects Apollo Attempt to Back Out of Merger Agreement
Thursday June 19, 2:13 am ET

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, June 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Huntsman Corporation today commented on yesterday's lawsuit by Hexion Specialty Chemicals and Apollo in which they claim they would not be required to consummate the Merger Agreement.

Peter Huntsman, President and CEO stated, "We believe Hexion and Apollo's actions are inconsistent with the terms of the Merger Agreement and the obligations to Huntsman and its shareholders. These actions appear to be a blatant attempt to deprive our shareholders of the benefits of the Merger Agreement that was agreed to nearly a year ago."

Huntsman intends to vigorously enforce all of its rights under the Merger Agreement and seek to consummate the merger on the agreed terms.
