LYONDELLBASELL INDUSTRIES N.V.
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.    Basis of Presentation
LyondellBasell Industries N.V. is a limited liability company (Naamloze Vennootschap) incorporated under Dutch law by deed of incorporation dated October 15, 2009. Unless otherwise indicated, the “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our” or similar words are used to refer to LyondellBasell Industries N.V. together with its consolidated subsidiaries (“LyondellBasell N.V.”). LyondellBasell N.V. is a worldwide manufacturer of chemicals and polymers, a refiner of crude oil, a producer of gasoline blending components and a developer and licensor of technologies for the production of polymers.
The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared from the books and records of LyondellBasell N.V. in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X for interim financial information. Certain notes and other information have been condensed or omitted from the interim financial statements included in this report. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements. These Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair statement have been included. These statements contain some amounts that are based upon management estimates and judgments. Future actual results could differ from such current estimates. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the entire year.
2.    Accounting and Reporting Changes
Recently Adopted Guidance
There were no new Accounting Standard Updates (“ASU”) adopted in the quarter ended March 31, 2024 that had a material impact on the Consolidated Financial Statements.
Accounting Guidance Issued But Not Adopted as of March 31, 2024
Segment Disclosures—In November 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-07, Segment Reporting (Topic 280): Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures. The guidance improves the disclosures about a public entity’s reportable segments and addresses requests from investors for additional detailed information about a reportable segment’s expenses. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023 and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2024. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently assessing the impact of adopting the new guidance on the Consolidated Financial Statements.
Income Tax Disclosures—In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-09, Income Taxes (Topic 74): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures. The guidance requires companies to disclose certain specific categories in the rate reconciliation and provide additional information for reconciling items that meet the quantitative threshold of 5% of the expected tax using the applicable statutory income tax rate. There is also a required disclosure to provide the net income taxes paid or received disaggregated by federal, state, and foreign taxes with jurisdictions to be separately disclosed if the jurisdiction is 5% or more of the total net income taxes paid or received. The guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2024. Earlier adoption is permitted. We are currently assessing the impact of adopting the new guidance on the Consolidated Financial Statements.

3.    Assets Held for Sale
During the fourth quarter of 2023, we entered into an agreement to sell our U.S. Gulf Coast-based ethylene oxide and derivatives (“EO&D”) business along with the production facility located in Bayport, TX for cash consideration of $700 million, subject to working capital and other adjustments. The EO&D business had been identified as a non-core business within our Intermediates and Derivatives segment.

Long-Term Debt
Senior Revolving Credit Facility—Our $3,250 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Senior Revolving Credit Facility”), which expires in November 2026, may be used for dollar and euro denominated borrowings. The facility also supports our commercial paper program, has a $200 million sub-limit for dollar and euro denominated letters of credit and a $1,000 million uncommitted accordion feature. Borrowings under the facility bear interest at either a base rate, secured overnight financing rate (“SOFR”) or EURIBOR rate, plus an applicable margin. Additional fees are incurred for the average daily unused commitments. At March 31, 2024, we had no borrowings or letters of credit outstanding and $3,250 million of unused availability under this facility.
Guaranteed Notes due 2034—In February 2024, LYB International Finance III, LLC (“LYB Finance III”), a wholly owned finance subsidiary of LyondellBasell Industries N.V., issued $750 million of 5.5% guaranteed notes due 2034 (the “2034 Notes”) at a discounted price of 99.2%. Net proceeds after deducting original issuance discounts, underwriting fees and offering expenses totaled $737 million. We used the net proceeds from the sale of the 2034 Notes to repay our 5.75% senior notes due 2024 as discussed further below.
These unsecured notes, which are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by LyondellBasell Industries N.V., rank equally in right of payment to all of LYB Finance III’s and LyondellBasell Industries N.V.’s existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness and will rank senior in right of payment to any future subordinated indebtedness that LYB Finance III or LyondellBasell Industries N.V. incurs. There are no significant restrictions that would impede LyondellBasell Industries N.V., as guarantor, from obtaining funds by dividend or loan from its subsidiaries.
The indenture governing these notes contains limited covenants, including those restricting our ability, and the ability of our subsidiaries, to incur indebtedness secured by significant property or by capital stock of subsidiaries that own significant property, enter into certain sale and lease-back transactions with respect to any significant property or enter into consolidations, mergers or sales of all or substantially all of our assets.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS-(Continued)

The 2034 Notes may be redeemed at any time in whole, or from time to time in part, prior to the scheduled maturity date, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (i) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest (discounted at the treasury rate plus the applicable basis points) less interest accrued on the notes to be redeemed, and (ii) 100% of the principal amount of the notes redeemed; plus, in either case, accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but excluding, the redemption date. The 2034 Notes may also be redeemed at any time, on or after the date that is three months prior to the scheduled maturity date of the notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be redeemed plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but excluding, the redemption date. The notes are also redeemable upon certain tax events.
Senior Notes due 2024—In March 2024, we repaid the $775 million remaining outstanding principal of our 5.75% senior notes due 2024.
Short-Term Debt
U.S. Receivables Facility—Our U.S. Receivables Facility, which expires in June 2024, has a purchase limit of $900 million in addition to a $300 million uncommitted accordion feature. This facility provides liquidity through the sale or contribution of trade receivables by certain of our U.S. subsidiaries to a wholly owned, bankruptcy-remote subsidiary on an ongoing basis and without recourse. We pay variable interest rates on our secured borrowings. Additional fees are incurred for the average daily unused commitments. This facility also provides for the issuance of letters of credit up to $200 million. At March 31, 2024, we had no borrowings or letters of credit outstanding and $900 million unused availability under this facility.
Commercial Paper Program—We have a commercial paper program under which we may issue up to $2,500 million of privately placed, unsecured, short-term promissory notes (“commercial paper”). At March 31, 2024, we had no borrowings of outstanding commercial paper.
Precious Metal Financings—At March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, we had $164 million and $117 million, respectively, of short-term debt related to our precious metal financings.
Weighted Average Interest Rate—At March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, our weighted average interest rates on outstanding Short-term debt were 1.5% and 1.9%, respectively.

9.    Income Taxes
For interim tax reporting, we estimate an annual effective tax rate which is applied to the year-to-date ordinary income. Tax effects of significant, unusual, or infrequently occurring items are excluded from the estimated annual effective tax rate calculation and recognized in the interim period in which they occur. Our effective income tax rate fluctuates based on, among other factors, changes in pre-tax income in countries with varying statutory tax rates, changes in valuation allowances, changes in foreign exchange gains or losses, the amount of exempt income, changes in unrecognized tax benefits associated with uncertain tax positions and changes in tax laws.
Our exempt income primarily includes interest income, export incentives, and equity earnings of joint ventures. Interest income earned by certain of our subsidiaries through intercompany financings is taxed at rates substantially lower than the U.S. statutory rate. Export incentives relate to tax benefits derived from elections and structures available for U.S. exports. Equity earnings attributable to the earnings of our joint ventures, when paid through dividends to certain European subsidiaries, are exempt from all or portions of normal statutory income tax rates. We currently anticipate the favorable treatment for interest income, dividends, and export incentives to continue in the near term; however, this treatment is based on current law. The United Kingdom, as well as certain other jurisdictions in which we operate, enacted legislation implementing the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Pillar Two Model Rules effective as of January 1, 2024. We do not expect the impact to be material based on the legislation enacted at this stage.
Our effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2024 was 20.4% compared to 26.0% for the first quarter of 2023. The lower effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2024 was primarily due to the first quarter 2023 goodwill impairment, for which there was no tax benefit, of 6.6% coupled with a 2.1% decrease in our effective income tax rate related to changes in pre-tax income in countries with varying statutory tax rates. These decreases were partially offset by a 3.0% increase in our effective income tax rate due to a decrease in exempt income.
10.    Commitments and Contingencies
Commitments—We have various purchase commitments for materials, supplies and services incidental to the ordinary conduct of business, generally for quantities required for our businesses and at prevailing market prices. These commitments are designed to ensure sources of supply and are not expected to be in excess of normal requirements. Additionally, we have capital expenditure commitments, which we incur in our normal course of business.
Financial Assurance Instruments—We have obtained letters of credit, performance and surety bonds and have issued financial and performance guarantees to support trade payables, potential liabilities and other obligations. Considering the frequency of claims made against the financial instruments we use to support our obligations, and the magnitude of those financial instruments in light of our current financial position, management does not expect that any claims against or draws on these instruments would have a material adverse effect on the Consolidated Financial Statements. We have not experienced any unmanageable difficulties in obtaining the required financial assurance instruments for our current operations.
Environmental Remediation—Accrued liabilities for future environmental remediation costs at current and former plant sites and other remediation sites totaled $141 million and $124 million as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. At March 31, 2024, the accrued liabilities for individual sites range from less than $1 million to $43 million. The remediation expenditures are expected to occur over a number of years and are not concentrated in any single year. In our opinion, it is reasonably possible that losses in excess of the liabilities recorded may have been incurred. However, we cannot estimate any amount or range of such possible additional losses. New information about sites, new technology or future developments, such as involvement in investigations by regulatory agencies, could require us to reassess our potential exposure related to environmental matters.

Indemnification—We are parties to various indemnification arrangements, including arrangements entered into in connection with acquisitions, divestitures and the formation and dissolution of joint ventures. Pursuant to these arrangements, we provide indemnification to and/or receive indemnification from other parties in connection with liabilities that may arise in connection with the transactions and in connection with activities prior to completion of the transactions. These indemnification arrangements typically include provisions pertaining to third-party claims relating to environmental and tax matters and various types of litigation. As of March 31, 2024, we had not accrued any significant amounts for our indemnification obligations, and we are not aware of other circumstances that would likely lead to significant future indemnification obligations. We cannot determine with certainty the potential amount of future payments under the indemnification arrangements until events arise that would trigger a liability under the arrangements.
As part of our technology licensing contracts, we give indemnifications to our licensees for liabilities arising from possible patent infringement claims with respect to certain proprietary licensed technologies. Such indemnifications have a stated maximum amount and generally cover a period of 5 to 10 years.
Legal Proceedings—We are subject to various lawsuits and claims, including but not limited to, matters involving contract disputes, environmental damages, personal injury and property damage. We vigorously defend ourselves and prosecute these matters as appropriate.
Our legal organization applies its knowledge, experience and professional judgment to the specific characteristics of our cases, employing a litigation management process to manage and monitor legal proceedings in which we are a party. Our process facilitates the early evaluation and quantification of potential exposures in individual cases. This process also enables us to track those cases that have been scheduled for trial, mediation or other resolution. We regularly assess the adequacy of legal accruals based on our professional judgment, experience and the information available regarding our cases.
Based on consideration of all relevant facts and circumstances, we do not believe the ultimate outcome of any currently pending lawsuit against us will have a material adverse effect upon our operations, financial condition or Consolidated Financial Statements.

The timing and amount of these repurchases, which are determined based on our evaluation of market conditions and other factors, may be executed from time to time through open market or privately negotiated transactions. The repurchased shares, which are recorded at cost, are classified as Treasury stock and may be retired or used for general corporate purposes, including for various employee benefit and compensation plans.
