     Statements made in the conference call relating to matters that are not
 historical facts are forward-looking statements that represent management's
 beliefs and assumptions based on currently available information.  Forward-
 looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "believes,"
 "intends," "may," "will," "should," "anticipates," "expects," or comparable
 terminology, or by discussions of strategy or trends.  Although the Company
 believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements
 are reasonable, it cannot give any assurances that these expectations will
 prove to be correct.  Such statements by their nature involve risks and
 uncertainties, including, but not limited to, the cyclicality of the titanium
 dioxide industry, global economic conditions, global productive capacity,
 customer inventory levels, changes in product pricing, changes in foreign
 currency exchange rates, competitive technology positions, operating
 interruptions (including, but not limited to, labor disputes, leaks, fires,
 explosions, unscheduled downtime and transportation interruptions), recoveries
 from insurance claims, the ultimate resolution of pending or possible future
 lead pigment litigation and legislative developments related to the lead paint
 litigation, the outcome of other litigation, and other risks and uncertainties
 detailed in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.  Should
 one or more of these risks materialize (or the consequences of such a
 development worsen), or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect,
 actual results could differ materially from those forecasted or expected.  The
 Company assumes no duty to update any forward-looking statements.
