[FORM OF LETTER TO EMPLOYEE STOCKHOLDERS WHO HOLD SHARES THROUGH COMPANY PLANS]
March 27, 2009
Dear Fellow Eastman Employee and Stockholder:
Our 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held on May 7, and it is important that your shares be represented. Again this year, all employees who own Eastman shares through the ESOP or Eastman Investment Plan will access the Notice and Proxy Statement for the Annual Meeting and Eastmans Annual Report to Stockholders electronically on the Internet. Making these materials available to you electronically rather than by sending printed material in the mail significantly reduces the Companys printing and postage expenses and reflects our continuing efforts to increase efficiency and reduce costs through the expanded use of technology.
To access the 2008 Annual Report and the Notice and Proxy Statement for the 2009 Annual Meeting, please go to www.ViewMaterial.com/EMN and click on the icon for each document. (If you like, you may use your Eastman employee account to access the Internet website and review the materials.) The business to be considered and voted upon at the Annual Meeting is explained in the Proxy Statement. Please review the Proxy Statement, and the Annual Report, before voting your shares. If you wish to receive a paper copy of the Annual Report and Proxy Statement, select MaterialRequest and enter the 11-digit number in the box by the arrow on your proxy card.
It is important that your shares be represented and voted at the Annual Meeting. As explained on the enclosed proxy card, you can vote by proxy by Internet, by telephone, or by marking, signing, dating, and mailing your proxy card in the enclosed postage-paid envelope. Whether you choose to vote by computer, telephone, or proxy card, please vote as soon as possible. Your vote is important, regardless of the number of shares you own.
Yours very truly,
Theresa K. Lee
Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary
