    Keep In Mind

    CEO's comments after last QTR earnings:

    "TPC Group is well positioned to continue to benefit from favorable market trends, structural tightness in many of our products and economic growth. While we expect the typical seasonal pattern of easing prices and margins
    later this year, we continue to see strong, stable demand in our core markets, including synthetic rubber, nylon, polyethylene and fuel and lube additives. Crude C4 supplies will continue to be constrained due to the shift
    from heavy to light cracking based on economical natural gas liquids, constraining our volume growth but offering continued opportunities for our value-added services in the near term," commented Mr. McDonnell.

    "We also continue to make excellent progress in developing the longer term growth and profit performance of the Company through strategic projects that
    capitalize on attractive long term market fundamentals, idled production assets, and the expected strength of natural gas liquids economics. We recently completed primary engineering to restart one of our idled
    dehydrogenation units to produce isobutylene as a feedstock for our fuel products and performance products business. We also commenced an engineering study to produce up to 600 million pounds of on-purpose butadiene by
    restarting our second, idled dehydrogenation unit. These exceptional opportunities will significantly enhance our operating model and provide an even stronger foundation for long-term, sustainable earnings growth."
