MILLION IN ANTICIPATED CAPITAL EXPENDITURES INTENDED TO ENHANCE MARGINS

OKLAHOMA CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LSB Industries, Inc. (NYSE: LXU) (“LSB”) today announced that it intends
to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $35 million aggregate
principal amount of its 9.625% Senior Secured Notes due 2023 (the

include product loading and unloading improvements, tank storage,
capital to facilitate guest plant opportunities and efficiency projects
to reduce fixed costs. The remaining net proceeds are expected to be
used for general corporate purposes.
