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.

During Q2 2009, Huntsman reached an agreement with Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank to settle its claims against the bank in Texas state court for fraud and tortuous interference in connection with a terminated merger agreement, among other things, according to the company. 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.
