Styrene Margin Data

Styrene margin over raw material data is being provided on a periodic basis to communicate recent market pricing activity that may impact the Company’s financial performance. The data includes styrene margin over raw materials in dollars per metric ton for Western Europe, using recent contract price settlements for the current month, and Asia, using spot prices for the recently completed month.

Trinseo’s Feedstocks reporting segment captures styrene monomer margin through both internally produced and cost-based purchases of styrene. Annually, we produce nearly 700 kilotons of styrene in Western Europe and purchase approximately 300 kilotons of styrene in Asia with cost-based economics. With all other inputs remaining equal, a $50 per metric ton change in styrene margins would be expected to impact the Feedstocks reporting segment’s annual Adjusted EBITDA by approximately $35 million in Europe and approximately $15 million in Asia. Other factors that could impact the Feedstocks segment Adjusted EBITDA include, but are not limited to, utilities, freight, manufacturing costs, overhead costs, discounts of styrene, benzene, and ethylene, as well as raw material timing.
