Date:9/11/2008

ST. PETERS, Mo., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc. (NYSE: WFR) today provided an update related to Hurricane Ike.

The company reported that it has started taking safety precautions at its Pasadena, Texas facility in preparation for Hurricane Ike. As part of these precautions, the company has started shutting down operations in preparation for the heavy weather which is currently projected to impact the area. Operations are anticipated to resume early next week, potentially resulting in approximately a five day impact on polysilicon production at this facility. This degree of impact for unanticipated circumstances was contemplated in the range of financial targets provided in the mid-quarter update on September 2, 2008. Should circumstances change significantly, the company will issue another press release.
