Note: See reconciliation tables below for adjustments made to GAAP and discussion of items affecting results.

Consolidated Results from Continuing Operations

Solutia Inc. (NYSE: SOA) today reported a consolidated loss from continuing operations of $4 million for the first quarter of 2009, compared to income of $1,234 million for the same period in 2008. These results were impacted by certain events affecting comparability (detailed below) totaling a net gain of $1 million in 2009 and a net gain of $1,210 million in 2008. After adjusting for these items in both periods, continuing operations loss of $5 million in the first quarter of 2009 decreased from income of $24 million in the first quarter of last year. This decline was primarily due to the weakened demand profile, higher depreciation and amortization due to fresh-start accounting, and higher stock compensation expense partially offset by income tax benefits. For the quarter, Solutia posted a diluted loss per share from continuing operations of $.04 and as adjusted a loss per share of $.05.

Consolidated EBITDA from continuing operations for the first quarter decreased to $51 million from $73 million in the first quarter of 2008 on net sales of $339 million and $517 million, respectively. After taking into consideration adjustments (as detailed below in the consolidated and segment sales, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA table), Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $56 million from $95 million.

"Demand in the first quarter was negatively impacted by the difficult macro-economic conditions affecting the global markets. However, we were able to greatly offset the impact of these conditions through the decisive actions we began to implement in the fourth quarter of last year to reduce our operating costs, working capital levels and capital expenditures. In total, our efforts resulted in an improvement in our liquidity over the course of the first quarter," said Jeffry N. Quinn, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Solutia Inc. "While we expect continued softness in demand throughout 2009, we do expect modest volume improvement in comparison to our first quarter levels. Further, we have taken actions to further reduce costs over the remainder of the year."

Quinn added, "We also are pleased to have closed the $74 million term loan facility at one of our German subsidiaries and we continue to work toward the closure of the sale of our nylon business within the second quarter. These actions will improve our strategic positioning and bolster liquidity."

Segment Data

In order to aid understanding of Solutia's business performance, the results of Solutia's business segments are presented on an adjusted basis and reconciled to the comparable GAAP measures in the below tables.

Saflex(R) Segment

Saflex's first quarter 2009 net sales were $133 million, down $60 million or 31% from the same period in 2008. Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $24 million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $31 million in the prior year period primarily due to sales volume declines in all world markets, partially offset by lower raw material and SG&A costs, and higher selling prices. Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded to 18% in the first quarter in comparison to 16% in the same period in 2008.

CPFilms(R) Segment

CPFilms' first quarter 2009 net sales were $34 million, down $28 million or 45% from the same period in 2008. Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $2 million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $16 million in the same period in 2008, primarily due to lower window films revenue, partially offset by reduced SG&A costs.

Technical Specialties Segment

Technical Specialties' first quarter 2009 net sales were $167 million, down $85 million or 34% compared to the same period in 2008. Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $46 million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $59 million in the prior year period, primarily due to lower volumes partially offset by improved selling prices and lower SG&A costs. Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded to 28% in the first quarter in comparison to 23% in the prior year period.

Unallocated and Other

Unallocated and other losses increased $5 million to $16 million compared to the first quarter 2008, primarily attributable to year over year changes with currency transaction gains and losses and lower interest income.

Discontinued Operations - Integrated Nylon Segment

As announced previously, Solutia has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its nylon business and results for this business are reported as Discontinued Operations. In the first quarter, income from discontinued operations decreased $345 million to a net loss of $155 million, in comparison to the same period in 2008. The first quarter results for 2009 were negatively impacted by non-cash charges of $101 million, net of tax to adjust the book value of the Nylon business to its estimated fair value as of the March 31, 2009. The first quarter results for 2008 were impacted by reorganization items and certain gains and losses totaling a net gain of $210 million. Despite continued demand pressure in this business, discontinued operations provided cash of $35 million in the first quarter, as a reduction in working capital more than offset the operating losses of the business.

"The nylon sale will complete Solutia's transformation into a pure-play performance materials and specialty chemicals company. Our going-forward portfolio of high-margin businesses with world-leading positions sets the stage for long-term growth and success once economic conditions improve," added Quinn.

Leverage and Liquidity

For the first quarter of 2009, the Company reduced net debt by $50 million to $1,314 million and had liquidity of $163 million. Cash provided by continuing operations before reorganization activities for the quarter was $30 million compared to a use of $36 million for the same period for 2008. The improvement in cash from continuing operations was primarily attributed to improvements in working capital, lower incentive payments and lower funding of pension and other postretirement benefit plans.

"As we stated during our fourth quarter conference call, we are focused on preserving and enhancing our liquidity position in light of the current economic environment," said James M. Sullivan, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "To this end, we have obtained a $74 million unsecured term loan with one of our German subsidiaries. We have used the net proceeds to reduce the outstanding balance on our revolving credit facility, which has increased Solutia's liquidity."

Outlook

As the Company expected, the sharp decline in demand that commenced during the fourth quarter of 2008 continued through much of the first quarter of this year. During this period year over year volume declines were magnified by inventory destocking actions. Inventory levels for the most part now appear to be better aligned with the weaker downstream demand environment. The Company expects a relatively soft demand environment with some seasonal growth in the coming quarters and has taken additional actions to right-size the business to reflect these expectations.

Based on these actions, and the results of the first quarter which were consistent with management expectations, the Company is reiterating its Adjusted EBITDA target for 2009 in the range of $325 million to $350 million. On account of the strong cash generation in the first quarter, the Company is increasing its 2009 target range for cash from continuing operations less capital spending to $50 million to $100 million, from $25 million to $75 million.

    (1) EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense, income taxes,
        depreciation and amortization, less net income attributable
        to non-controlling interests, and reorganization items, net.  Foreign
        currency gains/losses are included in Unallocated and Other.
    (2) Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA (as defined above), excluding
        Adjustments (as defined below)
    (3) Adjustments include Events Affecting Comparability (see separate
        table), cost overhang associated with the expected sale of our
        Integrated Nylon business, and non-cash stock compensation expense

Use of Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Information and Reconciliation to Comparable GAAP Number

For the purpose of this press release, the company has used certain financial measures such as EBITDA (defined as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, less net income attributable to non-controlling interest and reorganization items, net) and Adjusted EBITDA (to include EBITDA and exclude gains and losses, cost overhang associated with the expected sale of our Integrated Nylon business, and non-cash stock compensation expense) that are not determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). The company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they facilitate period-to-period comparisons of Solutia's performance and enable investors to assess the company's performance in the way that management and lenders do. Our debt covenants and certain management reporting and incentive plans are measured against certain of these non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these measures to GAAP measures are included immediately below.
