  8. Strong Barriers to Entry with Consolidated Supply Base 2.8 tons of quartz 1.4 tons of coal 2.4 tons of wood Strong Barriers to Entry Consolidated Supply Base • Power (36%) – requires stable, long-term supply of low cost electricity • Raw materials (40%) • Proximity to high purity, low cost raw materials – GSM owns quartz and wood chips supply • Freight costs are significant – 6.6:1 ratio of inputs to output • Electrodes • Quality is critical – GSM owns supply • Capital cost of greenfield construction • $180 million for a two-furnace operation • GSM has 18 furnaces • Long lead time for greenfield completion • Permitting is a long and complicated process • 3–5 years from concept to commissioning 2008 Western World Silicon Metal Production 1 ton of siliconmetal Top 5 producers = 73% Source: CRU, 2009. 7

  9. Prices Resilient / Substantial Leverage to Price Silicon metal prices have been more resilient than other metals relative to historic levels and are expected to recover as the economy rebounds Relative Price Movements GSM has Substantial Leverage to Price • Costs are stable and facilities are some of the most efficient in the world • Control of inputs through ownership or long-term contracts • Each 1¢/lb ($22/MT) increase leads to ~$4 million more in EBITDA 22.3% (15.6%) (43.7%) Source: American Metal Market. Note: Prices reflect the spot high price for each respective period. Note: EBITDA impact estimated based on assumed $0.01/lb increase on all 186,400 tons of pro forma silicon metal capacity. 8

  10. Growth-Oriented Strategy • IPO is the first step in executing our growth strategy • Acquisitions will be carefully targeted, synergistic and accretive • Current economic environment and poor capital structures = opportunity • Product diversification • Pricing leverage in strong markets • Ensure greater operational utilization in down markets 9

  11. Silicon Metal is Critical to a Variety of Industrial Materials Chemicals(50% of sales) Aluminum(40% of sales) Solar / Electrical(10% of sales) Silicones Coatings Auto / Commercial Other Solar Electronics • Oils • Cosmetics • Hydraulics • Textiles • Polishes • Mechanical fluids Resins • Insulators • Waterproofing • Paints Rubber • Automotive • Insulators • Consumer items • Coatings • Adhesives • Sealants • Rubber • Thermoplastics • Fiberglass • Auto / commercial vehicles • Engine parts • Wheels • Transmission Other • Marine • Railway Machinery & equipment Electrical Photovoltaic cells for solar energy systems providing clean power to homes, buildings and industry • Semiconductors for integrated circuits (chips) for: • Mobile telephones • DVD recorders • Computers • Calculators • Video games • Televisions • Radios • Auto electronics • Medical electronics • Communications • Weapons • 410,000 tons consumed by chemical industry • GDP + 4% growth • 390,000 tons consumed by aluminum industry • Aluminum content in autos has increased over the past 20 years • Driven by increasing demand from the growing middle-class of BRIC countries and from global demand for renewable energy Note: % of sales figures represent industry estimates. 10

  12. Increasing Demand for Silicones Silicon metal is a base material for the production of silicones Silicones are a broad family of synthetic products with tremendously diverse applications Dow Corning has 20,000+ silicone customers New applications continually being developed to improve performance, reduce waste, etc. Stable industry growth Silicones’ unique properties enable the two-in-one function of shampoo-conditioners Silicone sealants provide environmentally-sound structuralglazing that bonds glass Safety and reliability for electrical devices ‘Green Tires’ for fuel efficiency Reliability for wind turbines 11

  13. 326pounds 77 pounds Aluminum Production Trending Higher • Silicon metal is required in aluminum as a strengthener and alloying agent to improve castability and minimize shrinking and cracking • Aluminum provides a lighter weight alternative to steel • Aluminum demand has increased at a 5%+ CAGR for the past 20 years Global primary aluminum demand(000s tons) North American light vehicle aluminum content as a percent of curb weight Source: Bloomberg, Brook Hunt and Street research. Source: Ducker Worldwide. Note: Based on 3,600 lbs of curb weight. 12

  14. Solar Demand is New Large-Scale Opportunity • Rapidly growing demand for polysilicon due to solar industry growth • Increased electricity consumption • Demand for alternative energy sources • Availability of government financing programs • 1.4 tons of metallurgical grade silicon required for every 1 ton of solar grade silicon Source: Photon International, EPIA and management estimates. 13

  15. Silicon Alloys Are Key Ingredients in Steel and Foundry Products Steel Foundry Ferrosilicon (FeSi) Calcium Silicon (CaSi) Magnesium Ferrosilicon (MgFeSi) • Only 6 producers in Western World • ~18% global market share and ~50% U.S. share Commodity Specialty Ductile Iron Pipe • Used in production of carbon steels, stainless steels and other ferrous alloys • High grade specifications • Requires technical know-how • Used in applications where strength and formability are required • Automotive components • Often sole supplier • Short lead times and variety of grades discourage imports • Water transmission • Competitive advantage in providing technical advice and service by tailoring composition to customers’ requirements • ~50% share of the magnesium ferrosilicon market in the Americas and 20% in the Western World 14

  16. Steel Capacity Utilization and Ductile Iron Growth • Re-stocking in the service center channel has started to improve demand • Fiscal stimulus dollars will begin to impact infrastructure spending further, driving steel demand • Automotive production appears to have troughed Steel production capacity utilization Monthly global steel production (000s tons) Source: American Iron and Steel Institute.

  19. Rigorous Focus on Cost Reduction Goal is to strengthen position as the low cost producer Permanent headcount reductions across all facilities Significant cuts to SG&A – not expected to return with increased revenue Implementation of best practices 18

  20. Poised for Sector Rebound Expect near-term volume improvement Shipments in calendar Q1 2009 reached trough levels Inventory de-stocking is largely complete Calendar Q2 stabilized and began to show signs of improvement driven by end-market demand Capacity rationalization / discipline GSM has over 80,000 incremental tons available to come online quickly at a low cost GSM recently restarted 3 furnaces at Beverly, Brazil and Argentina facilities Re-start of Niagara Falls, NY facility expected in 2010, subject to market demand Annual contract negotiations typically begin in November 19
