23. Subsequent Event
On May 14, 2009, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order confirming Constars emergence from Chapter 11 in accordance with the Plan of Reorganization for Constar and its affiliated debtors. Constar expects to emerge from Chapter 11 on or about May 29, 2009. See Notes 1 and 2 for further discussion of Constars reorganization proceedings under Chapter 11.
As of the confirmation date, the Company is required to apply the fresh start accounting provisions of SOP 90-7. Fresh start reporting requires an allocation of the reorganization value to the reorganized entitys assets and liabilities pursuant to SFAS No. 141 (revised 2007). During April 2009, the Company began the process of measuring the fair values for all assets and liabilities in accordance with SFAS No. 157 Fair Value Measurements along with the process of allocating the reorganization value to the assets and liabilities for Constar International Inc. and its subsidiaries. The Company anticipates the completion of the fair value measurements and the allocation of the reorganization value in June 2009. The Company anticipates a step up in value of the property, plant and equipment and the recognition of certain identifiable intangible assets. The Subordinated Notes will be converted into new common stock and the Secured Notes will be adjusted to fair value resulting in a decrease to reported liabilities.
Consequently, the financial statements of the reorganized Company will change materially in amounts and classifications due to the implementation of the fresh-start accounting provisions of SOP 90-7. The fresh start accounting adjustments will be reflected in the financial statements reported in the Companys Form 10-Q for the six months ended June 30, 2009.

21. Subsequent Event
On April 23, 2008, the Company decided to close its manufacturing facility in Houston, Texas by the end of May 2008. This decision resulted from previously disclosed customer losses, and a strategic decision to exit the limited extrusion blow-molding business supported by the Houston facility. The Company will continue to service the Houston plants PET business using existing assets at the Companys Dallas, Texas facility. The cumulative cash flow impact to the Company is expected to turn positive in the fourth quarter of 2008, with cash restructuring expenses being offset by overhead cost savings.
In connection with the closing of the Houston facility, the Company expects to incur total restructuring charges of approximately $4.4 - $4.8 million. The total charges include (i) an estimated $2.1 million related to costs to exit the Houston facility, (ii) an estimated $0.5 million related to employee severance and other termination benefits, and (iii) an estimated $2.0 million of accelerated depreciation and other non-cash charges. Of these total charges, approximately $3.0 million represent cash expenditures expected to be approximately $1.0 million in each of 2008-2010.
