        Pursuant to an agreement entered into in 2001, our subsidiary Airstar Corporation ("Airstar") subleases a Gulfstream IV-SP Aircraft (the "Aircraft") from Jstar Corporation ("Jstar"), a corporation wholly owned by Jon M. Huntsman. Jon M. Huntsman is the Executive Chairman and the father of our Chief Executive Officer, Peter R. Huntsman, and our director, Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. In 2011, this arrangement was extended for an additional 10 year period. In connection with this extension, monthly sublease payments from Airstar to Jstar were reduced from approximately $193,000 to approximately $115,000 and an aggregate of $13.8 million is payable through the end of the current 10 year lease term. These monthly sublease payments are used to fund financing costs paid by Jstar to a leasing company. An unrelated third party pays $2.4 million per year to our subsidiary for such third party's part-time use of the Aircraft (or an alternate owned by us if the Aircraft is unavailable), subject to an annual adjustment, which typically has been at least fair market value for the number of flight hours used by such third party. We bear all other costs of operating the Aircraft. In accordance with our Aircraft Use Policy, we have entered into aircraft time-sharing agreements with certain members of the Huntsman family, pursuant to which these persons pay for the costs of any personal use of the Aircraft by them.

        An agreement was reached prior to the initial public offering of our common stock in February 2005 with the Huntsman Foundation, a private charitable foundation established by Jon M. and Karen H. Huntsman, to further the charitable interests of the Huntsman family, that we would donate our Salt Lake City office building and our option to acquire an adjacent undeveloped parcel of land to the foundation free of debt. On March 24, 2010, we completed this donation. At the time of the donation, the building had an appraised value of approximately $10 million. We continue to occupy and use a portion of the building under a lease pursuant to which we make annual lease payments of approximately $2 million to the Huntsman Foundation. During both 2012 and 2011, we made payments of approximately $2 million to the Huntsman Foundation under the lease. The lease expires on December 31, 2013, subject to two five-year extensions, at our option.

        Through May 2002, we paid the premiums on various life insurance policies for Jon M. Huntsman. These policies have been liquidated, and the cash values have been paid to Mr. Huntsman. Mr. Huntsman is indebted to us in the amount of approximately $2 million, which represents the insurance premiums paid on his behalf through May 2002. This amount is included in other noncurrent assets on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
