Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

The discussion below includes financial information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP managed basis.

A reconciliation of GAAP and managed basis financial information is provided in the supplemental schedules included in this release.

CEO Remarks

“Consistent with our commitments, we again delivered year-on-year improvement this quarter despite the lackluster economic environment with managed basis net earnings per share increasing by 20%,” commented Craig A. Rogerson, Chairman, President and CEO of Chemtura. “This quarter Chemtura AgroSolutions led our performance improvement, demonstrating the powerful impact of our focus on innovation. New products and registrations expanded margins, SG&A declined through the actions we took at the end of last year and bad debt expense declined resulting in the second strongest quarter ever for this segment.”
