Financial statements — Westlake Chemical

The information is not 100% up-to-date. There may be errors or missing information. Some information is often missing, and, although there are almost no errors, I can't rule them out. Right now, I'm looking for a supplier of high-quality information, but so far what I'm finding is expensive (about $2000 a year). You can help my project here.
