16:40 EDTGLWCorning: Dow Corning reduces Implant Liability, abandons Hemlock facility
In a filing Corning said: "During Q414, Dow Corning, with the assistance of a third-party advisor, developed an estimate of the future Implant Liability based on evidence that the actual funding required for the Settlement Facility is expected to be lower than the full funding cap set forth in the Plan. On December 12, Dow Corning reduced its Implant Liability by approximately $1.3B. Previously, the Implant Liability was based on the full funding cap set forth in the Plan. The revised Implant Liability reflects Dow Corning’s best estimate of its remaining obligations under the Plan. Should events or circumstances occur in the future which change Dow Corning’s estimate of the remaining funding obligations, the Implant Liability will be revised. This adjustment does not affect Dow Corning’s commitment or ability to fulfill its obligations under the settlement, and all claims that qualify under the settlement will be paid according to the terms of the Plan. On December 15, Dow Corning determined its Hemlock Semiconductor facility in Clarksville, Tennessee, would not be economically viable and made the decision to permanently abandon the assets. This decision was made after review of sustained adverse market conditions and continued oversupply, the cost of operating the facility, and the ongoing impact of tariffs on polycrystalline silicon imported into China. Dow Corning expects to record a pre-tax charge of approximately $1.5B to $1.6Bn related to the decision to permanently cease use of these assets. Corning’s fourth quarter equity earnings will reflect the company’s 50% share of: (1) Dow Corning's after-tax gain related to the decrease in its Implant liability in the amount of approximately $400M; and (2) Dow Corning’s after-tax charge against the Clarksville facility in the amount of approximately $500M."

08:31 EDTDOWDow Chemical to sell global Sodium Borohydride business to Vertellus
The Dow Chemical Company has signed definitive agreements to sell its global Sodium Borohydride business to Vertellus Specialty Materials LLC and its polyolefin films plant in Findlay, Ohio to Valfilm North America, a wholly-owned subsidiary of VALGROUP Packaging Solutions. Both transactions are expected to close in the first quarter of 2015 pending regulatory approvals. Combined proceeds from the transactions total approximately $225M. Dow had previously announced its intent to divest its Sodium Borohydride business on Oct. 2, 2014, as part of the Company’s ongoing focus to maximize value across its integrated portfolio by reducing exposure to non-strategic businesses and assets. Both transactions are part of Dow’s ongoing drive to deliver $7B-$8.5B in gross proceeds by mid-2016. The divestiture of Sodium Borohydride includes a manufacturing facility located in Elma, Washington, the associated business, inventory, customer contracts and lists, process technology, business know-how and certain intellectual property. Approximately 75 employees globally are expected to transition employment status to Vertellus as part of the transaction. Under the terms of the purchase agreement, Vertellus will honor customer and supplier contracts and related agreements. The sale of the Findlay plant includes assets and technology that produce a wide-variety of polyolefin films. In September 2014, Dow decided to close the facility at the end of January 2015, impacting approximately 70 employees. Valfilm intends to restart the facility in February 2015. The transaction is dependent on the final approval for all incentives by the State of Ohio.
