Huntsman Releases Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2011 Results; Reports Record Full Year Adjusted EBITDA of $1.2 Billion

february 27 2012

Huntsman Corporation has reported fourth quarter 2011 results with revenues of $2,632 million and adjusted EBITDA of $243 million. Peter R. Huntsman, our President and CEO, commented: "Our adjusted EBITDA of $1.2 billion represents the best year we have accomplished with our current business portfolio. This took place despite earnings pressure from foreign currency movements within the year and lower demand trends and aggressive customer destocking within the fourth quarter.

Looking forward, we anticipate that the corporation will see an improving global economy from this point forward. Most of our businesses have strong upside potential as we see a continued recovery in the world's economy. In 2012, we expect margin pressure on our Pigments business to be offset by improved earnings in our other divisions."

Advanced Materials
The decrease in revenues in our Advanced Materials division for the three months ended December 31, 2011 compared to the same period in 2010 was primarily due to lower sales volumes partially offset by higher average selling prices. Sales volumes decreased primarily due to lower demand in the wind energy market in the Asia Pacific region. Average selling prices increased primarily in response to higher raw material costs. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to the impact of the stronger Swiss franc,
on our manufacturing and selling, general and administrative costs.
