The number of Common Units validly tendered prior to the Expiration Time satisfies the condition that, following the closing of the Offer, OCI and its affiliates own at least 78,297,832 Common Units, representing greater than 90% of the outstanding OCIP Common Units. Pursuant to Section 15.1 of the First Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of OCIP (the "Partnership Agreement"), OCI intends to exercise the right, assigned to Holding by the general partner of OCIP, to purchase all of the remaining Common Units that were not tendered in the Offer and remain outstanding on July 3, 2018 (the "Buyout"). A notice of election to purchase such Common Units, pursuant to Section 15.1(b) of the Partnership Agreement, will be mailed to each unitholder of record who did not tender its Common Units in the Offer, and such holder will receive, for each Common Unit, $11.50 in cash, which represents the price paid by OCI for the Common Units in the Offer.

Upon the exercise of the Buyout, OCI will own all of the economic interests of the Partnership and will be entitled to all of the benefits resulting from those interests. In addition, on or around July 16, 2018, the Common Units will cease to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange or publicly traded.
