Stocks in this article: LYB

ROTTERDAM, Netherlands, Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LyondellBasell (NYSE: LYB) today announced that affiliates of Apollo Management Holdings L.P. have priced a public offering of 17.5 million ordinary shares of LyondellBasell at a price to the public of $46.94 per share. The net proceeds to Apollo, after deducting discounts and commissions, will be approximately $821.3 million.  The offering is expected to close Sept. 7, 2012, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.  Affiliates of Access Industries, Inc. determined not to participate in the offering.

The ordinary shares were issued pursuant to an effective shelf registration on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the ordinary shares nor shall there be any sale of these shares of ordinary shares in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.

The offering of these ordinary shares is being made only by means of a prospectus supplement and related prospectus. A copy of the prospectus supplement and accompanying base prospectus relating to the offering may be obtained from http://www.sec.gov/ or from Goldman, Sachs & Co., 200 West Street, New York, NY 10282, Attention: Prospectus Department, by calling (866) 471-2526, or by e-mailing prospectus-ny@ny.email.gs.com; Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Attn.: Prospectus Group, 60 Wall Street, New York, NY 10005-2836, by calling (800) 503-4611, or by e-mailing prospectus.CPDG@db.com; or Morgan Stanley & Co.
