May 3rd, 2012 Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 No, they are not. Correlating Volatility– what seems to hold true, will not Based upon everything mentioned, prices should be increasing RIGHT? Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 2013 and beyond:
Recovery will spark increased demand combined with stricter pollution constraints and lack of supply = prices increasing, availability becoming an issue 2012 Forecast:
Slow Demand combined w/weakening producing country currencies = More availability, lower pricing Key Takeaways Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 We are experts in Raw materials! So Why Aakash Chemicals? Beyond the products that we can deliver to customers, what separates us from others and creates hidden value? What is beyond a price per pound? Why is our footprint growing and customers are listening? What is the true value of a mutually beneficial partnership between: Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 Beyond Products Phthalonitrile
Phthalic Anhydride

In House Capabilities Enable Variety:
Ball-Milling/Jet Milling
Spray Drying/Tray Drying Pre-cursors and Processing Vertical Integration of Copper Phthalocyanine Crude (CPC)
1:1 Ratio for Blue Production
1:2 Ratio for Green Production
50 ppm limit for Ammoniacal Nitrogen (NH3-N)
Key concerns with Crude
Free Copper
Heavy Metals
25% of Organic Pigments are Phthalocyanine Derivatives Phthalocyanine Pigments Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals And you will increase your bottom line Choose your partners wisely 3 Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals What can we expect for pricing and availability 2012 and Beyond 2 Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 Pigments:

influence price… What influences Raw Material Prices? Technical Director: Ricky G. Schneier Plastics Technical Center THE AAKASH ADVANTAGE Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 Supply Considerations: Financial Considerations: Global demand currently weak, combined with surplus supply
China demand lower
European crisis uncertainty
Asia has become an extremely captive market
Although 2012 is not a strong year, expectations are considerably strong
Pollution control creating longer lead times and less availability Oil Prices Increasing
Investment money into commodity markets (trading)
Weak USD
Oil should remain around $100 with a 6% chance of touching $125 in 2012
Production Costs Increasing
China Labor Laws
India/Europe pollution regulations
Financial Markets Extremely Active
Pressure to increase margins during heavy M&A season Key Considerations Extruder: Leistritz 34mm Twin Screw,
Co-Rotating THE AAKASH ADVANTAGE Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 Key Question: What does this mean for you? Pollution Control = Less Availability Less Availability over the long-run
More scrutiny
Potentially new technologies leading to more sustainable chemistries
However, these technologies would be very capital intensive

Key Opportunity: innovate with your suppliers! Strict governmental controls
Pollution board in India has limited CPC crude production
China has put chlorine on the top of its “watch list” for hazardous pollutants
Heavy fines for non-compliance as well as indefinite closures
Governmental permits at a premium Copyright 2012 Aakash Chemicals 4/26/12 Energy Price Fluctuations Retail Consumers Paint Raw Materials Base Chemicals Energy Volatile Energy Prices Impact the entire Chain!
