$16 million hurricane-related insurance recovery.

Electronic & Communication Technologies

-- Sales grew 12 percent to $1.0 billion and PTOI increased 41 percent to

$175 million, reflecting strong demand for refrigerants and

photovoltaic products.

Performance Materials

-- Sales grew 8 percent to $1.7 billion from continued strength in Asian

and European automotive and packaging materials markets.

-- PTOI increased 46 percent to $219 million in the quarter. Excluding a

$52 million significant item charge in the prior year, PTOI increased

8 percent. Sales improvement was partially offset by higher cost

ingredients and costs associated with manufacturing process

consolidations.

Safety & Protection

-- Sales were $1.4 billion, equal to the prior-year quarter. Excluding

the impact of a chemical business divestiture, sales grew 4 percent.

The impact of positive USD pricing and growth in emerging markets was

largely offset by lower volumes in U.S. construction markets.

-- PTOI was $272 million, down 7 percent reflecting lower volume, higher

costs associated with growth investments and the impact of a divested

business.
