    Huntsman Corporation (NYSE: HUN) today announced that on September 24, 2010, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Huntsman International LLC, consummated its previously announced $350 million offering of senior subordinated notes due 2021 (the "2021 Notes"). The 2021 Notes will carry an interest rate of 8 5/8% and will mature on March 15, 2021.

    Huntsman International intends to use the remaining net proceeds to purchase a portion of its senior 7 7/8% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2014 (the "2014 Notes") in connection with its previously announced cash tender offer for the 2014 Notes.

    Huntsman International expects to incur a charge of approximately $14 million for the early retirement of the notes purchased in the tender offers.
