  • On June 22, 2009, we reached an agreement with Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank to settle our claims against them in Texas state court for, among other things, fraud and tortious interference in connection with our terminated merger agreements with Basell and Hexion Specialty Chemicals, Inc. Under the terms of the settlement agreeme nt, Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank provided to us:
    • $632 million in cash
    • $500 million senior secured term loan financing, 7 year term at LIBOR + 2.25%
    • $600 million unsecured note financing, 7 year term at 5.5%
