Certain Definitions

For convenience in this report, the terms “Company,” “Huntsman,” “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 wholly-owned subsidiary).

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 unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and Huntsman International’s unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements 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 unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements 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, 2022 for our Company and Huntsman International.

Description of Businesses

We are a global manufacturer of diversified organic chemical products. We operate in three segments: Polyurethanes, Performance Products and Advanced Materials. Our products comprise many different chemicals and formulations, which we market globally to a wide range of consumers that consist primarily of industrial and building product manufacturers. Our products are used in a broad range of applications, including those in the adhesives, aerospace, automotive, coatings and construction, construction products, durable and non-durable consumer products, electronics, insulation, packaging, power generation and refining. Many of our products offer effects such as premium insulation in homes and buildings and the light weighting of airplanes and automobiles that help conserve energy. We are a leading global producer in many of our key product lines, including MDI, amines, maleic anhydride and epoxy-based polymer formulations. We operate all of our businesses through Huntsman International, our wholly-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 for both our Company and Huntsman International. The differences between our condensed consolidated financial statements and Huntsman International’s condensed consolidated financial statements relate primarily to different capital structures and purchase accounting recorded at our Company for the 2003 step-acquisition of Huntsman International Holdings LLC, the former parent company of Huntsman International that was merged into Huntsman International in 2005.


Principles of Consolidation

Our condensed consolidated financial statements 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.




Certain amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements for prior periods have been recast to present the results of operations of our textile chemicals and dyes business (“Textile Effects Business”) as discontinued operations. For more information, see “Note 3. Discontinued Operations and Business Disposition—Sale of Textile Effects Business.” 


Use of Estimates


The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. 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.
