LSB Strategic Committee To Continue Execution Of Existing Strategic Plan

The Strategic Committee at LSB Industries Inc. (NYSE:LXU) will continue to evaluate all strategic alternatives as the current LSB initiatives underway are implemented and as market conditions warrant. Specifically, once the expansion project at El Dorado is completed and Pryor and Cherokee demonstrate improved consistency of operations, the Committee intends to reassess the ability to enhance shareholder returns through placing some or all of LSB's Chemical Business into a Master Limited Partnership structure under market conditions at that time. In addition, as end markets accelerate for the Climate Control Business, and the business growth initiatives and other changes drive enhanced performance, LSB will also reassess the viability of alternatives to separate the business.
