The calculation of earnings per share is based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. The calculation of diluted earnings per common share reflects all possible outstanding common shares and their effect on income of the BASF employee participation program “Plus.”

In 2008 and 2007 there were no dilutive effects. All figures for the number of shares and earnings per share have been adjusted to reflect the two-for-one stock split conducted in the second quarter of 2008.
