Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On August 7, 2019, Huntsman International LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Huntsman”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Huntsman Corporation, Indorama Ventures Holdings L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Indorama”), and Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited, a public company organized and existing under the laws of the Kingdom of Thailand and parent to Indorama (“Buyer Guarantor”), entered into an Equity and Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”), pursuant to which Indorama agreed to acquire from Huntsman (1) all of the equity of three Huntsman subsidiaries and (2) certain assets and liabilities comprising the manufacturing facilities located in Port Neches, Texas; Dayton, Texas; Chocolate Bayou, Texas; Ankleshwar, India; and Botany Australia (collectively, the “Business” and such transaction, the “Transaction”), for a purchase price of $2.0 billion in cash plus up to approximately $76 million in net underfunded pension and other post-employment benefit liabilities. The purchase price is subject to certain closing and post-closing adjustments for deviations from net working capital and net indebtedness.


The Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and covenants, including covenant by Huntsman to conduct the Business in all material respects in the ordinary course during the time between the execution of the Agreement and the closing of the Transaction.


The Transaction is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain closing conditions, including, among others: (a) the absence of specified adverse laws or orders, (b) the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, and the receipt of approvals by the Brazilian Administrative Counsel of Economic Defense, (c) the approval of the Acquisition by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, (d) the approval of the Transaction by the Australian Foreign Investment Review Board, (e) the representations and warranties of Huntsman, Indorama and Buyer Guarantor being true and correct, subject to the materiality standards contained in the Agreement, (f) material compliance by each party with its covenants, and (g) other conditions and closing deliverables as further described in the Agreement.


The foregoing description of the terms of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to such Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 2.1 and incorporated herein by reference.


The Agreement has been included to provide investors and security holders with information regarding its terms. It is not intended to provide any other factual information about Huntsman or the Business or to modify or supplement any factual disclosures about Huntsman in its public reports filed with the SEC. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Agreement were made only for purposes of the Agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Agreement, and may be subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by disclosure schedules containing information that modifies, qualifies or creates exceptions to such representations and warranties. The representations and warranties may have been made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts, and may be subject to standards of materiality applicable to the contracting parties that differ from those applicable to investors.
