Grace Reports Second Quarter 2012 Adjusted EPS Of $1.14 And Affirms 2012 Earnings Outlook

Chapter 11 Proceedings

On April 2, 2001, Grace and 61 of its United States subsidiaries and affiliates, including its primary U.S. operating subsidiary, W. R. Grace & Co.–Conn., filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware in order to resolve Grace’s asbestos-related liabilities.

On January 31, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court issued an order confirming Grace’s Joint Plan of Reorganization. On January 31, 2012, the United Stated District Court issued an order affirming the Plan, which was reaffirmed on June 11, 2012 following a motion for reconsideration. Eight parties filed notices of appeal with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals before the July 11, 2012 deadline.

On June 5, 2012, the Bankruptcy Court approved agreements among Grace, co-proponents of the Plan, BNSF railroad, several insurance companies and the representatives of Libby asbestos personal injury claimants, to settle certain objections to the Plan. In connection with this settlement, the company agreed to pay $19.5 million to transfer the Libby Medical Program to an independent entity in Montana. Pursuant to the agreements, the Libby claimants and BNSF will withdraw their appeals to the Plan when these settlements become effective.

The timing of Grace’s emergence from Chapter 11 will depend on the satisfaction or waiver of the remaining conditions set forth in the Plan. Grace and its co-proponents are evaluating the appeals to the Plan and whether Grace will emerge from Chapter 11 prior to the resolution of such appeals.

The Plan sets forth how all pre-petition claims and demands against Grace will be resolved. See Grace’s most recent periodic reports filed with the SEC for a detailed description of the Plan.
