NOTICE OF INTENTION TO SEEK TERMINATION OF
CARBON DIOXIDE FINAL DECREES

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Praxair, Inc. and The BOC Group, Inc., as successors in interest to certain of the original defendants in the Final Decrees entered in United States v. Liquid Carbonic Corp., 1952 Trade Cas. (CCH) ¶ 67,248 (E.D.N.Y. 1952), as amended (the "1952 Decree"), and United States v. General Dynamics Corp., 1963 Trade Cas. (CCH) ¶¶ 70,890-70,892, 70,919 (E.D.N.Y. 1963) (the "1963 Decree," and together with the 1952 Decree, the "Decrees"), as well as American Air Liquide Holdings, Inc., on behalf of certain of its subsidiary companies that conduct operations subject to the 1963 Decree, intend to petition the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York to enter an Order terminating the Decrees.

On June 24, 1948, and August 22, 1961, the United States filed separate complaints alleging that certain defendants had conspired to restrain interstate trade and commerce in the manufacture, distribution and sale of carbon dioxide, and had monopolized and attempted to monopolize such trade. The original defendants settled the charges by accepting entry of the Decrees. The Decrees perpetually enjoin the defendants from continuing the conspiracy or entering into similar conspiracies, and prohibit the defendants from engaging in certain alleged exclusionary practices. In particular, Praxair, BOC and Air Liquide are prohibited from using requirements contracts for the sale of bulk liquid or cylinder carbon dioxide in excess of one year and are also prohibited from tying the supply of carbon dioxide to the rental of storage tanks, and vice versa. In addition, BOC and Praxair are prohibited from selling each other carbon dioxide except in emergency circumstances.

Before determining whether it should join a motion to terminate the Decrees, the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice invites interested persons to provide the Division with any information or comments relevant to the proposed termination. Interested persons may submit information or comments to Maribeth Petrizzi, Chief, Litigation II Section, Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice, 1401 H Street, NW, Suite 3000, Washington, DC 20530 (202/307-0924). Comments should be submitted promptly, but no later than April 15, 2006.
