Cabot Corporation

Cabot Specialty Chemicals Inc.

Cabot has no commercial ties with the sanction-designated Iranian entity, Ervin Danesh Aryan Company (“Ervin Danesh”); does not intend to initiate business with Ervin Danesh; has not authorized the use of the Cabot logo or name by Ervin Danesh, and; following UANI’s letter, will take substantive steps to rectify the advertised but false impression of business ties between Cabot and Ervin Danesh, including by issuing a “cease and desist” notice to Ervin Danesh demanding they remove “all references to Cabot and its products from their website.” We also note that Cabot “is not currently engaging in any sales of products into Iran.”
