LyondellBasell, one of the largest plastics, chemicals and refining companies and Odebrecht S.A., the controlling shareholder of Braskem , a leading plastic producer in the Americas, in a joint statement today announced the companies have entered into exclusive discussions regarding a potential transaction between LyondellBasell and Braskem.

The companies jointly stated:

"Both LyondellBasell and Braskem share a strong culture of operational excellence and legacies of value-creating innovation.
