Third Quarter 2020 Results

Total net sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 were $634 million, a decrease of 9% compared with $693 million in the prior year period. Volumes positively impacted net sales by $13 million due to volume increases in Hexion's specialty epoxy and base epoxy resins businesses, offset by decreases in the Company's North American wood adhesives business due to overall weakness in the market, primarily in the non-residential construction industry. Pricing negatively impacted sales by $68 million due primarily to raw material price decreases contractually passed through to customers across many businesses, as well as unfavorable product mix and continued competitive market conditions in base epoxy resins. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted net sales by $4 million due to the weakening of various foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019.

Net loss for the Successor three months ended September 30, 2020 was $102 million compared to a net income of $3,054 million for the Predecessor period July 1, 2019 and a net loss of $43 million in the Successor period of July 2, 2019 through September 30, 2019. Total Segment EBITDA from continuing operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $91 million, a decrease of $13 million compared with the prior year period reflecting improved results in our Versatic Acids and Derivatives and specialty epoxy resins businesses, offset by the absence of the $18 million of Segment EBITDA in the prior year related to deferred revenue that was accelerated on July 1, 2019 as part of Fresh Start Accounting.
