BASF Ends Force Majeure

May 1, 2018

Dear Valued Customer,

As referenced in a letter dated January 23, 2018, BASF declared force majeure on MMDI and MMDI
containing blends due to extended periods of severe weather and freezing temperatures as well as
the inability to secure raw materials required to resume normal operations. Following repairs of
weather related damage and recovery of raw material supply systems, BASF has been able to resume
operations and secure associated raw materials. As a result, effective May 1, 2018, BASF is lifting its
announced force majeure with respect to all Lupranate® MMDI based products. However, sales
allocation will remain in place until further notice.

Your BASF account manager will be in contact with you to discuss the status of current and future orders.
We appreciate your patience and understanding through this situation.
