“In our chemicals business, the energy advantage continued to support strong export demand and, as previously identified, the merged organization is focused on leveraging the combined assets to achieve synergy objectives and take advantage of our diverse portfolio – particularly serving the merchant chlorine, derivatives and vinyls markets,” said Paul Carrico, president and chief executive officer. “With these efforts, we achieved a significant milestone by surpassing our year-one synergy target of a $60 million run rate after just three quarters. We now are focused on leveraging this flexibility and our strong operating rates to create synergies in excess of our year-end 2014 target of $115 million.
