NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

1. GENERAL

CERTAIN DEFINITIONS

        For convenience in this report, the terms "Company," "our," "us" or "we" may be used to refer to Huntsman Corporation and, unless the context otherwise requires, its subsidiaries and predecessors. In this report, "Huntsman International" refers to Huntsman International LLC (our 100% owned subsidiary) and, unless the context otherwise requires, its subsidiaries.

        In this report, we may use, without definition, the common names of competitors or other industry participants. We may also use the common names or abbreviations for certain chemicals or products.

INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

        Our interim condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited) and Huntsman International's interim condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited) were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP" or "U.S. GAAP") and in management's opinion reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of results of operations, comprehensive income, financial position and cash flows for the periods presented. Results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of those to be expected for the full year. These condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited) should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes to consolidated financial statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 for our Company and Huntsman International.

DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

        We are a global manufacturer of differentiated organic chemical products and of inorganic chemical products. Our products comprise a broad range of chemicals and formulations, which we market globally to a diversified group of consumer and industrial customers. Our products are used in a wide range of applications, including those in the adhesives, aerospace, automotive, construction products, personal care and hygiene, durable and non-durable consumer products, electronics, medical, packaging, paints and coatings, power generation, refining, synthetic fiber, textile chemicals and dye industries. We are a leading global producer in many of our key product lines, including MDI, amines, surfactants, maleic anhydride, epoxy-based polymer formulations, textile chemicals, dyes, titanium dioxide and color pigments.

        We operate in five segments: Polyurethanes, Performance Products, Advanced Materials, Textile Effects and Pigments and Additives. Our Polyurethanes, Performance Products, Advanced Materials and Textile Effects segments produce differentiated organic chemical products and our Pigments and Additives segment produces inorganic chemical products. In a series of transactions beginning in 2006, we sold or shutdown substantially all of our Australian styrenics operations and our North American polymers and base chemicals operations. We report the results of these businesses as discontinued operations.

COMPANY

        Our Company, a Delaware corporation, was formed in 2004 to hold the Huntsman businesses. Jon M. Huntsman founded the predecessor to our Company in 1970 as a small packaging company.

1. GENERAL (Continued)

Since then, we have grown through a series of acquisitions and now own a global portfolio of businesses.

        Currently, we operate all of our businesses through Huntsman International, our 100% owned subsidiary. Huntsman International is a Delaware limited liability company and was formed in 1999.

HUNTSMAN CORPORATION AND HUNTSMAN INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

        Except where otherwise indicated, these notes relate to the condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited) for both our Company and Huntsman International. The differences between our financial statements and Huntsman International's financial statements relate primarily to the following:

PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION

        Our condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited) include the accounts of our wholly-owned and majority-owned subsidiaries and any variable interest entities for which we are the primary beneficiary. Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

USE OF ESTIMATES

        The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Debt Issuance

        On March 31, 2015, Huntsman International completed a €300 million (approximately $326 million) offering of 4.25% senior notes due April 1, 2025 ("2025 Senior Notes"). On April 17, 2015, Huntsman International used the net proceeds of this offering to redeem $289 million ($294 carrying value) of our 8.625% senior subordinated notes due 2021 ("2021 Senior Subordinated Notes"). For more information, see "Note 7. DebtDirect and Subsidiary DebtRedemption of Notes and Loss on Early Extinguishment of Debt." In connection with this redemption, Huntsman International incurred a $20 million loss on early extinguishment of debt in the second quarter of 2015. As of March 31, 2015, $294 million was classified as current portion of debt on our condensed consolidated balance sheets (unaudited).

Pigments and Additives Restructurings

        On February 12, 2015, we announced a plan to close the 'black end' manufacturing operations and ancillary activities at our Calais, France site, which will reduce our titanium dioxide capacity by approximately 100 kilotons, or 13% of our European titanium dioxide capacity. The 'black end' is responsible for the start of the titanium dioxide manufacturing process. The 'white end' is used to finish and pack titanium dioxide and will remain operational employing up to 100 people on the site. In connection with this announcement, we began to accelerate depreciation on the affected assets and recorded incremental accelerated depreciation in the first quarter of 2015 of $28 million as restructuring, impairment and plant closing costs on our condensed consolidated statements of operations (unaudited). For more information, see "Note 6. Restructuring, Impairment and Plant Closing Costs."

        On March 4, 2015, we announced plans to restructure our color pigments business, another step in our previously announced plan to significantly restructure our global Pigments and Additives segment. For more information, see "Note 6. Restructuring, Impairment and Plant Closing Costs."

2. RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Accounting Pronouncements Adopted During 2015

        In April 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant, and Equipment (Topic 360): Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity, changing the criteria for reporting discontinued operations and enhancing reporting requirements for discontinued operations. A disposal of a component of an entity or a group of components of an entity will be required to be reported in discontinued operations if the disposal represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity's operations and financial results. Further, the amendments in this ASU will require an entity to present, for each comparative period, the assets and liabilities of a disposal group that includes a discontinued operation separately in the asset and liability sections, respectively, of the statement of financial position. The amendments in this ASU are effective prospectively for all disposals (or classifications as held for sale) of components of an entity that occur within annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2014, and interim periods within those years, and for all businesses that, on acquisition, are classified as held for sale that occur within annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2014, and interim periods within those years. We adopted the amendments in this ASU effective January 1, 2015, and the initial adoption of the amendments in this ASU did not have any impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited).

Accounting Pronouncements Pending Adoption in Future Periods

        In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), outlining a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenues arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance. The amendments in this ASU are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016,

including interim periods within that reporting period. The amendments in this ASU should be applied retrospectively, and early application is not permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of the amendments in this ASU on our condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited).

        In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, Presentation of Financial Statements—Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, providing guidance about management's responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity's ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related footnote disclosures. The amendments in this ASU are effective for the annual period ending after December 15, 2016, and for annual periods and interim periods thereafter. Early adoption is permitted. We do not expect the adoption of the amendments in this ASU to have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited).

        In January 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-01, Income Statement—Extraordinary and Unusual Items (Subtopic 225-20): Simplifying Income Statement Presentation by Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items, eliminating from US GAAP the concept of extraordinary items. Reporting entities will no longer have to assess whether a particular event or transaction event is extraordinary. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. A reporting entity may apply the amendments prospectively or may also apply them retrospectively to all prior periods presented in the financial statements. Early adoption is permitted provided that the guidance is applied from the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. We do not expect the adoption of the amendments in this ASU to have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited).

        In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-02, Consolidation (Topic 810): Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis. The amendments in this ASU change the analysis that a reporting entity must perform to determine whether it should consolidate certain types of legal entities by placing more emphasis on risk of loss when determining a controlling financial interest. These amendments affect areas specific to limited partnerships and similar legal entities, evaluating fees paid to a decision maker or service provider as a variable interest, the effects of both fee arrangements and related parties on the primary beneficiary determination and certain investment funds. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. A reporting entity may apply the amendments retrospectively or using a modified retrospective approach. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period provided that any adjustments should be reflected as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period. We do not expect the adoption of the amendments in this ASU to have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited).

        In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, Interest—Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs. The amendments in this ASU require that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts, and that amortization of debt issuance costs shall be reported as interest expense. The recognition and measurement guidance for debt issuance costs are not affected by the amendments in this ASU. The

amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015, with early application permitted. Entities would apply the new guidance retrospectively to all prior periods. We do not expect the adoption of the amendment in this ASU to have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited).

        In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-05, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer's Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement. The amendments in this ASU provide guidance that will help entities evaluate the accounting for fees paid by a customer in a cloud computing arrangement, including whether a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license. If a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license, then the customer should account for the software license consistent with the acquisition of other software licenses; otherwise, the customer should account for the arrangement as a service contract. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Entities can elect to adopt the amendments either prospectively to all arrangements entered into after the effective date or retrospectively to all prior periods. We do not expect the adoption of the amendment in this ASU to have a significant impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements (unaudited).

3. BUSINESS COMBINATIONS

ROCKWOOD ACQUISITION

        On October 1, 2014, we completed the acquisition of the Performance Additives and Titanium Dioxide businesses (the "Rockwood Acquisition") of Rockwood Holdings, Inc. ("Rockwood"). We paid $1.04 billion in cash, subject to certain purchase price adjustments, and assumed certain unfunded pension liabilities in connection with the Rockwood Acquisition. The acquisition was financed using a bank term loan. The majority of the acquired businesses have been integrated into our Pigments and Additives segment. Transaction costs charged to expense related to this acquisition were nil and $5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and were recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses in our condensed consolidated statements of operations (unaudited).

        The following businesses were acquired from Rockwood:

HUNTSMAN INTERNATIONAL LLC AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED) (Continued)

3. BUSINESS COMBINATIONS (Continued)

        In connection with securing certain regulatory approvals required to complete the Rockwood Acquisition, we sold our TiO2 TR52 product line used in printing inks to Henan Billions Chemicals Co., Ltd. ("Henan") in December 2014. The sale did not include any manufacturing assets but does include an agreement to supply TR52 product to Henan during a transitional period.

        We have accounted for the Rockwood Acquisition using the acquisition method. As such, we analyzed the fair value of tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The preliminary allocation of acquisition cost to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed is summarized as follows (dollars in millions):

Cash paid for Rockwood Acquisition

  $ 1,038  

Expected purchase price adjustment receivable

    (25 )

Expected net acquisition cost

  $ 1,013  

Fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed:

       

Cash

  $ 78  

Accounts receivable, net

    220  

Inventories

    400  

Prepaid expenses and other current assets

    46  

Property, plant and equipment

    591  

Intangible assets

    33  

Deferred income taxes, non-current

    126  

Other assets

    9  

Accounts payable

    (146 )

Accrued expenses and other current liabilities

    (80 )

Long-term debt, non-current

    (3 )

Pension and related liabilities

    (233 )

Deferred income taxes, non-current

    (10 )

Other liabilities

    (18 )

Total fair value of net assets acquired

  $ 1,013  

        The acquisition cost allocation is preliminary pending final determination of the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed, including final valuation of property, plant and equipment, intangible assets, asset retirement obligations, and environmental and other legal reserves, and finalizing the expected purchase price adjustment receivable. None of the fair value of this acquisition was allocated to goodwill. It is possible that changes to this allocation could occur. If the Rockwood Acquisition were to have occurred on January 1, 2013, the following estimated pro forma revenues and net income

2015 RESTRUCTURING ACTIVITIES

        On December 1, 2014, we announced that we are taking significant action to improve the global competitiveness of our Pigments and Additives segment. As part of a comprehensive restructuring program, we plan to reduce our workforce by approximately 900 positions. In connection with this restructuring program, we recorded restructuring expense of $34 million in the three months ended March 31, 2015 related primarily to workforce reductions. We expect to complete this program by the middle of 2016.

        On February 12, 2015, we announced a plan to close the 'black end' manufacturing operations and ancillary activities at our Calais, France site, which will reduce our titanium dioxide capacity by approximately 100 kilotons, or 13% of our European titanium dioxide capacity. In connection with this announcement, we began to accelerate depreciation on the affected assets and recorded incremental accelerated depreciation in the three months ended March 31, 2015 of $28 million as restructuring, impairment and plant closing costs. In addition, we recorded restructuring expense of $22 million in the three months ended March 31, 2015 related primarily to workforce reductions. We expect to complete this program by the end of 2016.

        On March 4, 2015, we announced plans to restructure our color pigments business, another step in our previously announced plan to significantly restructure our global Pigments and Additives segment, and recorded restructuring expense of approximately $1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2015 related to workforce reductions. We expect to complete this program by the end of 2015.

2014 RESTRUCTURING ACTIVITIES

        During 2013, our Performance Products segment initiated a restructuring program to refocus our surfactants business in Europe. During the three months ended March 31, 2014, we recorded charges of $23 million primarily related to workforce reductions and a charge of $1 million for the impairment of long-lived assets relating to the announced agreement to purchase our Lavera, France manufacturing facility by Wilmar Europe Holdings B.V.

        During the three months ended March 31, 2014, our Advanced Materials segment recorded charges of $7 million primarily related to workforce reductions related to our global transformational change program designed to improve the segment's manufacturing efficiencies, enhance commercial excellence and improve its long-term global competitiveness. Our Advanced Materials segment also reversed charges of $3 million related to this initiative.

6. RESTRUCTURING, IMPAIRMENT AND PLANT CLOSING COSTS (Continued)

        On September 27, 2011, we announced plans to implement a significant restructuring of our Textile Effects segment, including the closure of our production facilities and business support offices in Basel, Switzerland, as part of an ongoing strategic program aimed at improving the Textile Effects segment's long-term global competitiveness. In connection with this plan, during the three months ended March 31, 2014, our Textile Effects segment recorded charges of $2 million for long-term contract termination costs and $2 million for decommissioning associated with this initiative. Additionally, we recorded charges of $2 million for long-term contract termination costs for other initiatives.

        During the three months ended March 31, 2014, our Pigments and Additives segment recorded charges of $3 million primarily related to the workforce reductions at our Huelva, Spain facility.

DIRECT AND SUBSIDIARY DEBT

        Huntsman Corporation's direct debt and guarantee obligations consist of a guarantee of certain indebtedness incurred from time to time to finance certain insurance premiums. Substantially all of our other debt, including the facilities described below, has been incurred by our subsidiaries (primarily Huntsman International). Huntsman Corporation is not a guarantor of such subsidiary debt.

        Certain of our subsidiaries are designated as nonguarantor subsidiaries and have third-party debt agreements. These debt agreements contain certain restrictions with regard to dividends, distributions, loans or advances. In certain circumstances, the consent of a third party would be required prior to the transfer of any cash or assets from these subsidiaries to us.

Senior Credit Facilities

        As of March 31, 2015, our senior credit facilities ("Senior Credit Facilities") consisted of our revolving credit facility ("Revolving Facility"), our extended term loan B facility ("Extended Term Loan B"), our extended term loan B facility—series 2 ("Extended Term Loan B—Series 2"), our 2014

        Our U.S. accounts receivable securitization program ("U.S. A/R Program") and our European accounts receivable securitization program ("EU A/R Program" and collectively with the U.S. A/R Program, "A/R Programs") are structured so that we transfer certain of our trade receivables to the U.S. special purpose entity ("U.S. SPE") and the European special purpose entity ("EU SPE") in transactions intended to be true sales or true contributions. The receivables collateralize debt incurred

7. DEBT (Continued)

        On March 31, 2015, Huntsman International issued €300 million (approximately $326 million) aggregate principal amount of 2025 Senior Notes. Huntsman International applied the net proceeds of this offering to redeem $289 million of its 2021 Senior Subordinated Notes in April 2015.

        The 2025 Senior Notes bear interest at 4.25% per year, payable semi-annually on April 1 and October 1, and are due on April 1, 2025. Huntsman International may redeem the 2025 Senior Notes in whole or in part at any time prior to January 1, 2025 at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof plus a "make-whole" premium and accrued and unpaid interest.

        The 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2025 Senior Notes are general unsecured senior obligations of Huntsman International and are guaranteed on a general unsecured senior basis by the Guarantors. The indentures impose certain limitations on the ability of Huntsman International and its subsidiaries to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness secured by any principal properties, incur indebtedness of nonguarantor subsidiaries, enter into sale and leaseback transactions with respect to any principal properties and consolidate or merge with or into any other person or lease, sell or transfer all or substantially all of its properties and assets. Upon the occurrence of certain change of control events, holders of the 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2025 Senior Notes will have the right to require that Huntsman International purchase all or a portion of such holder's notes in cash at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of repurchase.

        In connection with the redemption of our 2021 Senior Subordinated Notes in April 2015, Huntsman International incurred a $20 million loss on early extinguishment of debt in the second quarter of 2015. As of March 31, 2015, $294 million was classified as current portion of debt on our condensed consolidated balance sheets (unaudited).

Variable Interest Entity Debt

        As of March 31, 2015, Arabian Amines Company had $156 million outstanding under its loan commitments and debt financing arrangements. Arabian Amines Company, our consolidated 50%-owned joint venture, is currently not in compliance with payment and other obligations under these loan commitments. We do not guarantee these loan commitments and Arabian Amines Company is not a guarantor of any of our other debt obligations, and the noncompliance with these financial covenants does not affect any of our other debt obligations. On April 29, 2015, Arabian Amines Company obtained a waiver of certain financial covenants from the lender. We are analyzing the impact of this waiver on the balance sheet classification of these loan commitments. As of March 31, 2015, the amounts outstanding under these loan commitments were classified as current on our condensed consolidated balance sheets (unaudited).

7. DEBT (Continued)

Note Payable from Huntsman International to Huntsman Corporation

        As of March 31, 2015, we have a loan of $700 million to our subsidiary, Huntsman International (the "Intercompany Note"). The Intercompany Note is unsecured and $100 million of the outstanding amount is classified as current as of March 31, 2015 on our condensed consolidated balance sheets (unaudited). As of March 31, 2015, under the terms of the Intercompany Note, Huntsman International promises to pay us interest on the unpaid principal amount at a rate per annum based on the previous monthly average borrowing rate obtained under our U.S. A/R Program, less 10 basis points (provided that the rate shall not exceed an amount that is 25 basis points less than the monthly average borrowing rate obtained for the U.S. LIBOR-based borrowings under our Revolving Facility).

COMPLIANCE WITH COVENANTS

        We believe that we are in compliance with the covenants contained in the agreements governing our material debt instruments, including our Senior Credit Facilities, our U.S. A/R program and our EU A/R Program and our notes. However, Arabian Amines Company, our consolidated 50%-owned joint venture, is currently not in compliance with certain financial covenants contained under its loan commitments. See "—Variable Interest Entity Debt" above.

        Our material financing arrangements contain certain covenants with which we must comply. A failure to comply with a covenant could result in a default under a financing arrangement unless we obtained an appropriate waiver or forbearance (as to which we can provide no assurance). A default under these material financing arrangements generally allows debt holders the option to declare the underlying debt obligations immediately due and payable. Furthermore, certain of our material financing arrangements contain cross-default and cross-acceleration provisions under which a failure to comply with the covenants in one financing arrangement may result in an event of default under another financing arrangement.

        Our Senior Credit Facilities are subject to a single financial covenant (the "Leverage Covenant") which applies only to the Revolving Facility and is calculated at the Huntsman International level. The Leverage Covenant is applicable only if borrowings, letters of credit or guarantees are outstanding under the Revolving Facility (cash collateralized letters of credit or guarantees are not deemed outstanding). The Leverage Covenant is a net senior secured leverage ratio covenant which requires that Huntsman International's ratio of senior secured debt to EBITDA (as defined in the applicable agreement) is not more than 3.75 to 1.

        If in the future Huntsman International fails to comply with the Leverage Covenant, then we may not have access to liquidity under our Revolving Facility. If Huntsman International failed to comply with the Leverage Covenant at a time when we had uncollateralized loans or letters of credit outstanding under the Revolving Facility, Huntsman International would be in default under the Senior Credit Facilities, and, unless Huntsman International obtained a waiver or forbearance with respect to such default (as to which we can provide no assurance), Huntsman International could be required to pay off the balance of the Senior Credit Facilities in full, and we may not have further access to such facilities.

        The agreements governing our A/R Programs also contain certain receivable performance metrics. Any material failure to meet the applicable A/R Programs' metrics in the future could lead to an early termination event under the A/R Programs, which could require us to cease our use of such facilities, prohibiting us from additional borrowings against our receivables or, at the discretion of the lenders, requiring that we repay the A/R Programs in full. An early termination event under the A/R Programs would also constitute an event of default under our Senior Credit Facilities, which could require us to pay off the balance of the Senior Credit Facilities in full and could result in the loss of our Senior Credit Facilities.

8. DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES

        We are exposed to market risks, such as changes in interest rates, foreign exchange rates and commodity pricing risks. From time to time, we enter into transactions, including transactions involving derivative instruments, to manage certain of these exposures.

        All derivatives, whether designated in hedging relationships or not, are recorded on our balance sheet at fair value. If the derivative is designated as a fair value hedge, the changes in the fair value of the derivative and the hedged items are recognized in earnings. If the derivative is designated as a cash flow hedge, changes in the fair value of the derivative are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss, to the extent effective, and will be recognized in the income statement when the hedged item affects earnings. To the extent applicable, we perform effectiveness assessments in order to use hedge accounting at each reporting period. For a derivative that does not qualify as a hedge, changes in fair value are recognized in earnings.

        We also hedge our net investment in certain European operations. Changes in the fair value of the hedge in the net investment of certain European operations are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss.

        Our cash flows and earnings are subject to fluctuations due to exchange rate variation. Our revenues and expenses are denominated in various foreign currencies. From time to time, we may enter into foreign currency derivative instruments to minimize the short-term impact of movements in foreign currency rates. Where practicable, we generally net multicurrency cash balances among our subsidiaries to help reduce exposure to foreign currency exchange rates. Certain other exposures may be managed from time to time through financial market transactions, principally through the purchase of spot or forward foreign exchange contracts (generally with maturities of one year or less). We do not hedge our foreign currency exposures in a manner that would eliminate the effect of changes in exchange rates on our cash flows and earnings. As of March 31, 2015, we had approximately $245 million in notional amount (in U.S. dollar equivalents) outstanding in forward foreign currency contracts.

        Huntsman International has entered into several interest rate contracts to hedge the variability caused by monthly changes in cash flow due to associated changes in LIBOR under our Senior Credit

The notional amount of the swap as of March 31, 2015 was $26 million, and the interest rate contract is not designated as a cash flow hedge. As of March 31, 2015, the fair value of the swap was $3 million and was recorded as other current liabilities on our condensed consolidated balance sheets (unaudited). For the three months ended March 31, 2015, we recorded a reduction of interest expense of nil due to changes in fair value of the swap. As of March 31, 2015, Arabian Amines Company was not in compliance with certain financial covenants contained in its loan commitments. For more information, see "Note 7. Debt—Direct and Subsidiary Debt—Variable Interest Entity Debt."

        In November 2014, we entered into two five year cross-currency interest rate contracts and one eight year cross-currency interest rate contract to swap an aggregate notional $200 million for an aggregate notional €161 million. This swap is designated as a hedge of net investment for financial reporting purposes. Under the cross-currency interest rate contract, we will receive fixed USD payments of $5 million semiannually on May 15 and November 15 (equivalent to an annual rate of 5.125%) and make interest payments of approximately €3 million (equivalent to an annual rate of approximately 3.6%). As of March 31, 2015, the fair value of this swap was $33 million and was recorded in noncurrent assets.

        On March 17, 2010, we entered into three five year cross-currency interest rate contracts to swap an aggregate notional $350 million for an aggregate notional €255 million. This swap was designated as a hedge of net investment for financial reporting purposes. During the three months ended March 31, 2015, we terminated these cross-currency interest rate contracts and received $66 million in payments from the counterparties.

        We finance certain of our non-U.S. subsidiaries with intercompany loans that are, in many cases, denominated in currencies other than the entities' functional currency. We manage the net foreign currency exposure created by this debt through various means, including cross-currency swaps, the designation of certain intercompany loans as permanent loans because they are not expected to be repaid in the foreseeable future and the designation of certain debt and swaps as net investment hedges.

        Foreign currency transaction gains and losses on intercompany loans that are not designated as permanent loans are recorded in earnings. Foreign currency transaction gains and losses on

intercompany loans that are designated as permanent loans are recorded in other comprehensive income. From time to time, we review such designation of intercompany loans.

        We review our non-U.S. dollar denominated debt and derivative instruments to determine the appropriate amounts designated as hedges. As of March 31, 2015, we have designated approximately €331 million (approximately $360 million) of euro-denominated debt and cross-currency interest rate contracts as a hedge of our net investment. For the three months ended March 31, 2015, the amount of gain recognized on the hedge of our net investment was $75 million, and was recorded in other comprehensive (loss) income on our condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive (loss) income (unaudited). As of March 31, 2015, we had approximately €1,334 million (approximately $1,451 million) in net euro assets.

        The carrying amounts reported in our condensed consolidated balance sheets (unaudited) of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value because of the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. The fair value of non-qualified employee benefit plan investments is obtained through market observable pricing using prevailing market prices. The estimated fair values of our long-term debt are based on quoted market prices for the identical liability when traded as an asset in an active market (Level 1).

        The fair value estimates presented herein are based on pertinent information available to management as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014. Although management is not aware of any factors that would significantly affect the estimated fair value amounts, such amounts have not been comprehensively revalued for purposes of these financial statements since March 31, 2015 and current estimates of fair value may differ significantly from the amounts presented herein.

The income approach is used to calculate the fair value of these instruments. Fair value represents the present value of estimated future cash flows, calculated using relevant interest rates, exchange rates, and yield curves at stated intervals. There were no material changes to the valuation methods or assumptions used to determine the fair value during the current period.

In November 2014, we entered into two five year cross-currency interest rate contracts and one eight year cross-currency interest rate contract. These instruments have been categorized by us as Level 3 within the fair value hierarchy due to unobservable inputs associated with the credit
