Axiall Corporation - Shareholder/Analyst Call

To discuss the revised joint venture arrangements with Lotte Chemical Corporation and other business developments

Axiall and Lotte Chemical Finalize Joint-Venture Arrangements

Axiall Corporation and Lotte Chemical Corporation of the Republic of Korea announced that the companies have finalized their joint-venture arrangements to construct an ethane cracker. The final investment decision remains subject to approval by both companies’ boards of directors. The companies have formed LACC LLC to design, build and operate an ethane cracker in Louisiana that would produce approximately one million metric tons of ethylene annually once it commenced operation. Since announcing their intent to partner on the project in February 2014, Axiall and Lotte have also completed a joint FEED study for the plant. The two are now evaluating final project details, including site selection, which is anticipated in Lake Charles, La. A final investment decision is anticipated in the second half of 2015. If approved, the plant’s anticipated start-up would be the end of 2018. If approved by Lotte’s Board of Directors, Lotte Chemical also plans to build a monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant adjacent to the proposed cracker. Axiall would not have any investment in or ownership of that MEG plant. Financial terms of the joint venture call for Lotte to lead the project with Axiall having a maximum capital contribution obligation of $225 million towards the cracker during the engineering, procurement and construction phases of the project. The amount of Axiall’s capital contribution relative to the total, actual cost of constructing the cracker would determine the amount of ownership Axiall holds in the cracker.
