Blackstone Capital Partners (Cayman) IV L.P. ("BCP IV") owns 100% of Cayman 1. Blackstone Family Investment Partnership (Cayman) IV-A L.P. ("BFIP") and Blackstone Capital Partners (Cayman) IV-A L.P. ("BCP IV-A") collectively own 100% of Cayman 2. Blackstone Chemical Coinvest Partners (Cayman) L.P. ("BCCP" and, collectively with BCP IV, BFIP and BCP IV-A, the "Blackstone Funds") owns 100% of Cayman 3. Each of the Blackstone Funds may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the shares of Series B common stock held by the Cayman Entities owned by such Blackstone Funds.

("BMA") is the general partner of each of the Blackstone Funds and may, therefore, be deemed to be the beneficial owner of the share of Series B common stock held by the Cayman Entities.
