Whole shares of Axiall Corporation common stock in uncertificated form will be received by PPG shareholders whose common stock was accepted in the exchange. Under the terms of the exchange offer, fractional shares of Axiall Corporation common stock will not be issued. Rather, fractional shares will be aggregated and sold with the net cash proceeds from the sale distributed to the respective tendering shareholders with fractional interests.

Founded in 1883, PPG has global headquarters in Pittsburgh and operates in nearly 70 countries around the world. Sales in 2012 were $15.2 billion. PPG shares are traded on the New York Stock Exchange (symbol: PPG). For more information, visit www.ppg.com.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this news release relating to matters that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 reflecting PPG Industries’ current view with respect to future events or objectives and financial or operational performance or results. These matters involve risks and uncertainties as discussed in PPG Industries’ periodic reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q, and its current reports on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, many factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the company’s forward-looking statements. This news release also contains statements about PPG Industries’ agreement to separate its commodity chemicals business and merge it with a subsidiary of Axiall Corporation, to create Axiall Corporation (the “Transaction”) and its offer to exchange shares of PPG common stock for shares of Eagle Spinco Inc. common stock (and ultimately shares of Axiall common stock). Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the company’s forward-looking statements with respect to the Transaction, including risks relating to any unforeseen liabilities, future capital expenditures, revenues, expenses, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, losses and future prospects; business and management strategies for the management, expansion and growth of Axiall Corporation’s operations; Axiall Corporation’s ability to integrate PPG’s commodity chemicals business successfully after the closing of the Transaction and to achieve anticipated synergies; and the risk that disruptions from the Transaction will harm PPG’s or Axiall Corporation’s business. Consequently, while the list of factors presented here is considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements. Consequences of material differences in results as compared with those anticipated in the forward-looking statements could include, among other things, business disruption, operational problems, financial loss, legal liability to third parties and similar risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on PPG’s consolidated financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of their initial issuance, and PPG does not undertake any obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by applicable law.
