In segment revenues, polyurethanes fell from $1.161 billion in 2008 to $695 million in Q2 2009. Advanced materials saw $255 million this year, compared to $427 million in Q2 2008.

Under the terms of the settlement agreement, the Bank will provide Huntsman with $632 million in cash, $500 million in senior secured term loan financing for a seven-year term, and $600 million in unsecured note financing for a seven-year term.
