Arch and its subsidiaries have leadership positions in two business segments:  Biocides Products and Performance Products.  But at heart, we are a Biocides company.  We're a global leader in providing innovative, chemistry-based solutions to selectively destroy and control the growth of harmful microbes.  Our concentration is in water treatment, hair and skin care products, wood treatment, preservation and protection applications such as for paints and building products, and health and hygiene applications.

Our Biocides portfolio includes four businesses within our core Biocides Products business segment:

Water Products.  Arch's sanitizers and related treatment chemicals destroy harmful, even life-threatening microbes in recreational pool and spa water, drinking water, and water used in commercial and industrial applications, such as food disinfection and beverage bottle cleaning operations.

Wood Protection. Our advanced preservatives protect wood from, among other things, fungal decay, insect damage and fire damage.

Industrial Biocides and Health and Hygiene Products. Our biocides are incorporated into industrial, commercial and consumer products worldwide to provide protection against fungus, bacteria, viruses, algae and other harmful microbes.  For instance, Arch supplies biocides for use in paints and other building products to deter the growth of mold and mildew, leading causes of the Sick Building Syndrome.

Personal Care Products. Our biotechnological active ingredients, botanicals, preservatives and other cosmetic ingredients provide healthful benefits in hair and skin care products.  Arch's zinc Omadine®, for example, is the world's most popular active antidandruff shampoo agent.

The core competencies distinguishing these businesses are:

•  Superior chemical formulation skills.  We excel at developing new products and finding new
applications for old ones.
•  Regulatory and toxicological expertise.  In fact, we see a highly regulated environment to
ensure human health and safety as a key competitive advantage for us!
•  In-depth marketplace knowledge and technical customer support capabilities.

Arch stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol ARJ.  More details can be found in the Investor Relations section of our Web site.
