Commenting on the outlook for 2021, Bozich said, “We look forward to 2021 as an exciting time for Trinseo. Despite the continued economic impact risk of COVID-19, which we are closely monitoring, we expect significant earnings improvement in 2021. We are starting the year with a very strong balance sheet on the heels of a solid quarter of earnings with the expectation of continued strong demand in the first quarter, particularly in tires, automotive and appliances.” Bozich continued, “We will continue to act on our strategy of growing the business in areas with higher margins and less cyclicality by investing in Engineered Materials and CASE applications, including the acquisition of Arkema’s MMA/PMMA business. We are still on track to close this transaction by mid-year, at which time we also hope to have concluded our efforts around the exploration of a potential sale of the Synthetic Rubber business. Our strategy, along with a continued focus on our 2030 sustainability goals, will position Trinseo as an advanced specialty and sustainable solutions provider.” Conference Call and Webcast Information Trinseo will host a conference call to discuss its fourth quarter and full year 2020 financial results on Thursday, February 4, 2021 at 10 a.m. Eastern Time.

Use of non-GAAP measures In addition to using standard measures of performance and liquidity that are recognized in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we use additional measures of income excluding certain GAAP items (“non-GAAP measures”), such as Adjusted Net Income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS and measures of liquidity excluding certain GAAP items, such as Free Cash Flow. We believe these measures are useful for investors and management in evaluating business trends and performance each period. These measures are also used to manage our business and assess current period profitability, as well as to provide an appropriate basis to evaluate the effectiveness of our pricing strategies. Such measures are not recognized in accordance with GAAP and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance or liquidity, as applicable. The definitions of each of these measures, further discussion of usefulness, and reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures are provided in the Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Information presented herein.

Net sales in the fourth quarter decreased 3% versus prior year. Lower prices, mainly due to the pass through of lower raw material costs, resulted in a 10% sales decrease which was partially offset by higher volume across all segments with the exception of Feedstocks. Fourth quarter net income of $67 million was $61 million above prior year and fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $149 million was $90 million above prior year. The increase in earnings was due mainly to higher volume and margin, particularly within the Polystyrene and Base Plastics segments, as well as a favorable pre-tax net timing variance of $37 million. Net sales in the full year decreased 20% versus prior year from lower volume, due to COVID-19 impacts, and the pass through of lower raw material costs. Full-year net income of $8 million was $84 million below prior year and full-year Adjusted EBITDA of $299 million was $53 million below prior year. Lower earnings were due mainly to lower volume as a result of COVID-19 impacts as well as a $25 million unfavorable net timing variance. These impacts were partially offset by lower fixed costs as a result of restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives. Commenting on the Company’s fourth quarter and full-year performance, Frank Bozich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Trinseo, said, “2020 was a challenging year but I am extremely proud of how our team responded. During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the second quarter we were able to meet all customer demand and we undertook cost and capital expenditure reduction initiatives to maximize liquidity. Demand recovery in end markets like appliances and automotive in the second half of the year, as well as commercial excellence initiatives, resulted in robust earnings in the third and fourth quarters. In fact, the fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA was our highest result in over two years and we ended the year in a very strong liquidity position. In addition, we announced a transformative acquisition in December and continued to improve our position to compete in an increasingly sustainability-focused economy. All of this could not have been accomplished without the hard work and dedication of our employees.” Fourth Quarter Results and Commentary by Business Segment Effective October 1, 2020, the Company realigned its reporting segments to reflect the new model under which the business will be managed, which will provide increased clarity within the Performance Plastics segment. Following this change, the number of reporting segments has increased from six to seven. Five of the segments remain unchanged: Latex Binders, Synthetic Rubber, Feedstocks, Polystyrene, and Americas Styrenics. Performance Plastics has been reorganized into two separate reporting segments: Engineered Materials and Base Plastics. The new Engineered Materials segment includes the Company’s compounds and blends products sold into applications such as consumer electronics and medical, as well as thermoplastic elastomer products sold into a variety of applications including footwear and automotive. The new Base Plastics segment contains the results of the remaining product lines, including ABS, SAN and polycarbonate, as well as compounds and blends for automotive and other applications. This new structure is aligned with the Company’s strategy to invest its efforts and resources into product offerings serving applications that tend to be less cyclical and offer significantly higher growth and margin potential. In 2019 and 2020, Engineered Materials delivered margins that were more than two times the average of products serving all applications within the Company’s former Performance Plastics segment. Prior period amounts herein have been recast to reflect this new segmentation.Latex Binders net sales of $200 million for the quarter decreased 9% versus prior year due to the pass through of lower raw materials. Volumes were slightly higher than prior year as sales increases to CASE, textile, board and specialty paper applications were mostly offset by sales decreases to graphical paper applications. Adjusted EBITDA of $22 million was flat to prior year as higher sales volume was offset by net timing. In comparison to prior year, volume to CASE applications increased 13% in the fourth quarter and 5% in the full year. 131.9 2019 $ 55.4 Feedstocks $ $ 10.2 ) 2.26 $ (85.4 193.0 Three Months Ended $ $ Feedstocks Year Ended 40.3 Total liabilities and shareholders’ equity (Unaudited) 151.3 698.9 Cash provided by operating activities $ (3.7 38.6 Total assets Corporate unallocated 56.4 Proceeds from exercise of option awards $ 457.4 Asset impairment charges or write-offs for the 2020 periods presented above relate to the impairment of the Company’s styrene monomer assets in Boehlen, Germany and polybutadiene rubber (nickel and neodymium-PBR) assets in Schkopau, Germany. 3,446.9 ————————————————— $ Note 2: Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Performance Measures to Net Income EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial performance measure, which is defined as income from continuing operations before interest expense, net; income tax provision; depreciation and amortization expense. We refer to EBITDA in making operating decisions because we believe it provides our management as well as our investors with meaningful information regarding the Company’s operational performance. We believe the use of EBITDA as a metric assists our board of directors, management and investors in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis. We also present Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measure, which we define as income from continuing operations before interest expense, net; income tax provision; depreciation and amortization expense; loss on extinguishment of long- term debt; asset impairment charges; gains or losses on the dispositions of businesses and assets; restructuring charges; acquisition related costs and benefits, and other items. In doing so, we are providing management, investors, and credit rating agencies with an indicator of our ongoing performance and business trends, removing the impact of transactions and events that we would not consider a part of our core operations. Lastly, we present Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS as additional performance measures. Adjusted Net Income is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA (defined beginning with net income, above), less interest expense, less the provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization, tax affected for various discrete items, as appropriate. Adjusted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net Income per weighted average diluted shares outstanding for a given period. We believe that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS provide transparent and useful information to management, investors, analysts and other stakeholders in evaluating and assessing our operating results from period-to-period after removing the impact of certain transactions and activities that affect comparability and that are not considered part of our core operations. There are limitations to using the financial performance measures noted above. These performance measures are not intended to represent net income or other measures of financial performance. As such, they should not be used as alternatives to net income as indicators of operating performance. Other companies in our industry may define these performance measures differently than we do. As a result, it may be difficult to use these or similarly-named financial measures that other companies may use, to compare the performance of those companies to our performance. We compensate for these limitations by providing reconciliations of these performance measures to our net income, which is determined in accordance with GAAP.

Free Cash Flow is defined as cash from operating activities, less capital expenditures. We believe that Free Cash Flow provides an indicator of the Company’s ongoing ability to generate cash through core operations, as it excludes the cash impacts of various financing transactions as well as cash flows from business combinations that are not considered organic in nature. We also believe that Free Cash Flow provides management and investors with useful analytical indicators of our ability to service our indebtedness, pay dividends (when declared), and meet our ongoing cash obligations. Free Cash Flow is not intended to represent cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP, and therefore, should not be used as alternatives for that measure. Other companies in our industry may define Free Cash Flow differently than we do. As a result, it may be difficult to use this or similarly-named financial measures that other companies may use, to compare the liquidity and cash generation of those companies to our own. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the following detail, which is determined in accordance with GAAP. 315.6 ————————————————— 1.71 $ Net Sales Engineered Materials Capital expenditures $ Three Months Ended Net income Feedstocks net sales of $36 million for the quarter were 47% below prior year due to lower styrene pricing as well as lower styrene-related sales volume. Adjusted EBITDA of $15 million was $25 million higher than prior year due to higher styrene margins in Europe as well as a $19 million favorable net timing variance. Note that the accelerated depreciation charges incurred as part of both the Company’s corporate restructuring program and the upgrade and replacement of the Company’s compounding facility in Terneuzen, The Netherlands are included within the “Depreciation and amortization” caption above, and therefore are not included as a separate adjustment within this caption. 2019 136.0 $ ————————————————— 3,775.8 Net income 11.6 ) $ December 31, Weighted average shares – diluted (i) Free Cash Flow 38.3 2021 2.05 Net cash received for asset and business acquisitions (5.5 EPS – diluted Cash used in investing activities $ Americas Styrenics Adjusted EBITDA of $25 million for the quarter was $4 million above prior year due mainly to higher styrene volume and margin in North America, partially due to industry outages in the region. 2021 Full-Year OutlookFull-year 2021 net income of $167 million to $200 million and Adjusted EBITDA* of $400 million to $450 million, excluding any impact from net timing, the announced acquisition of Arkema’s MMA/PMMA business or the potential Synthetic Rubber divestiture. Provision for income taxes Adjusted to remove the tax impact of the items noted in (a), (b), (c), (d), (e) and (g).

Higher SSBR and ESBR sales volume and favorable currency increased sales by 16% and 7%, respectively. These impacts were mostly offset by lower pricing from the pass through of lower raw materials. Demand in the tire market was consistent with the third quarter. Adjusted EBITDA of $16 million, the strongest result since the second quarter of 2018, was $4 million higher than prior year as a favorable net timing variance of $4 million and higher sales volume were partially offset by lower fixed cost absorption.
