The Dow Chemical Company Announces Board Appointments

The Dow Chemical Company and Third Point LLC announced a comprehensive agreement to add four new, independent directors to Dow's Board. Mark Loughridge, Ray Milchovich and R. "Steve" Miller will join the Board on January 1, 2015. Richard Davis will join in May 2015 following the 2015 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

Dow Chemical Plans To Increase Its Divestiture Target

Third Point Chief Executive Officer Daniel Loeb had called for The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW) to spin off its petrochemical unit, but been rebuffed. Dow "fundamentally disagrees" with Third Point's statements, which show little interest regarding benefits to long-term shareholders, Dow said in a statement. "Our board and management team are aggressively pursuing the best interests of all shareholders and managing the business for both the short and long term," Dow said. During an investors event on November 12, 2014 and November 14, 2014, Dow announced plans to increase its divestiture target to $7 billion-$8.5 billion by mid-2016.

The Dow Chemical Company Provides Update Regarding Strategic Investments in Its Plastics Franchise in the Americas

The Dow Chemical Company announced that several key milestones have been reached with the Company's Plastics investments in the U.S. Gulf Coast and Latin America. The projects on the U.S. Gulf Coast are nearing peak construction and remain on track and on-plan for start-up, with all site construction underway. When fully operational, Dow's collective feedstock and plastics expansions on the U.S. Gulf Coast are projected to deliver an estimated $2.5 billion in EBITDA annually. In Bahia Blanca, Argentina, Dow plans to expand capacity and enhance production technologies and equipment of its polyethylene production units to support increased market demand in consumer and industrial films. In Freeport, Texas, all engineering for the on-purpose propylene PDH project is complete and more than 50% of construction is complete. The project remains on track for start-up in mid-2015. Building on Dow's proprietary solution polyethylene technology, the Company will also expand its popular ELITE(TM) franchise which delivers enhanced durability and flexibility for food packaging, hygiene & medical, and industrial and consumer packaging markets. These high performance brands are powered by Dow's industry leading proprietary INSITE(TM) catalyst technology. In Plaquemine, Louisiana, Dow will expand its NORDEL(TM) EPDM franchise with next generation technology. Also powered by INSITE, NORDEL EPDM provides the infrastructure, transportation, consumer durables, appliance and electrical and telecommunications markets with highly flexible, heat and chemical resistant polymers that deliver enhanced durability and long service life. Also in Plaquemine, Dow will expand its Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) family of high performance products like AGILITY(TM) that are faster to process, more stable and deliver improved optics for applications in flexible food packaging. Latin America Expands PE Production: Starting in 2015, Dow plans to expand capacity and enhance production technologies and equipment at its four polyethylene (PE) production units - LDPE, Slurry, Gas Phase, Solution - in Bahia Blanca, Argentina. These investments will enable Dow to produce more high performance resins for flexible and rigid packaging applications to meet growing demand in Latin America. The LDPE plant will be refurbished to enable production of resins for extrusion coating used in multiple packaging applications. The Slurry plant expansion will help drive growth of bimodal blow molding resins, which is currently in short supply in the region. The Gas Phase plant, which produces resins for geomembranes and pipes, will also be refurbished for improved operational performance. The Solution plant expansion will bring more of Dow's popular DOWLEX(TM) and ELITE resins to market and enable Dow to increase its participation in high value markets like food packaging and hygiene.
