Europe and Africa Price Change Announcement

May 22, 2017

Dear Valued Customer,

Effective July 1, 2017, Birla Carbon will increase carbon black prices in Europe and Africa region by EUR 70/MT, net of price monthly variation.

All shipments made on or after this date are subject to the price increase.

This increase is necessary to address a combination of conditions including market environment, raw material costs, increasingly stringent regulatory requirements and Birla Carbon’s commitment to continual reinvestment in carbon black plants.

Your business with Birla Carbon is valued and your continued support is appreciated.

Please contact your Birla Carbon representative for questions regarding this price change announcement.

Yours sincerely,

Jose Dreux
Vice President of Sales, Europe and Africa region
