Dear shareholders and customers,

KKPC, founded in 1970, boasts of a history that exceeds 40 years
during which it had to overcome many adversities, such as the last two
rounds of the oil crisis, the Asian Financial Crisis of the 90s, and the
global financial crisis of the 2000s. Nothing has been easy, but the busi-
ness normalization period on 2009–2012 under the supervision of 13
creditor banks, resulting from the biggest ever appraisal loss we in-
curred through equity method, was especially difficult.

However, the three-year time led the growth of Kumho Petrochemical to
become a stronger business enterprise. We were able to transform into
a functional organization that can cope with any difficulty through inno-
vations and reform of organizational structures while knowing our
strengths and weaknesses and focusing on our priorities. As a result,
we have been able to leave the Kumho Asiana Group and secure our
best-ever financial stability and competitiveness.

We, Kumho Petrochemical Group, with a grander vision, are preparing
to take a new step forward. We will achieve our vision to “be a global
leading chemical group with sales of KRW 20 trillion and 20 world-class
products.“ Through this vision, we will secure global competitiveness
and create an economy of reliable scale.

You, the shareholder, customers, and partners, made these results pos-
sible. I would like to express my sincerest gratitude for the shareholders
who showed us their unwavering support through good and bad times,
for customers who have trusted us and loved our products, for partners
who have shared the same goals with us, and for members of the local
community who always give us their trust and support through this web site.

We would like to ask for your continued interest and support in the future of Kumho Petrochemical.

Thank you.
