Eastman Announces Offering of $300 Million 3.500% Notes due 2021 and $500 Million 4.500% Notes due 2028

KINGSPORT, Tenn., Oct 31, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE: EMN) today announced the public offering of $300 million aggregate principal amount of 3.500% notes due 2021 (the "2021 Notes") and $500 million aggregate principal amount of 4.500% notes due 2028 (the "2028 Notes" and, together with the 2021 Notes, the "Notes"). Citigroup Global Markets Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated are serving as joint book-running managers for the offering.

Any proceeds not used for the foregoing will be used for general corporate purposes. Pending the application of any net proceeds, Eastman expects to invest such net proceeds in cash equivalents.
