DuPont Reports Second-Quarter 2016 Results

07/26/2016

Volumes Grew due to Strength in Agriculture, Performance Materials, and Nutrition & Health
Operating Margins Expanded in all Reportable Segments

WILMINGTON, Del., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Second-Quarter Highlights

  • GAAP1 earnings per share totaled $1.16 versus $1.06 in prior year. Operating earnings2 per share increased 14 percent to $1.24, including $0.05 per share of negative impact from currency.
  • Sales of $7.1 billion reflected 2-percent volume growth, due to Agriculture, Performance Materials and Nutrition & Health. Local price, currency and portfolio in aggregate negatively impacted sales by 3 percent, resulting in total sales declining 1 percent.
  • Agriculture sales reflected 3-percent volume growth, driven by higher corn seed and insecticide sales, partially offset by lower soybean volumes in North America. Volume growth was offset by negative impacts from currency and portfolio.
  • Total company gross margins expanded more than 100 basis points. Total segment operating margins increased about 250 basis points, as operating margins expanded in all reportable segments.
  • Total segment pre-tax operating earnings2 of $1,613 million increased 11 percent, despite approximately $60 million of negative impact from currency.
  • GAAP operating costs3 declined by approximately $160 million. Excluding significant items and non-operating pension/OPEB costs, operating costs2 declined by approximately $220 million, a 12-percent reduction versus prior year.
  • GAAP corporate expenses declined 26 percent versus prior year. Excluding significant items, corporate expenses2 declined by $65 million or 44 percent.
  • DuPont now expects full-year 2016 GAAP earnings to be in the range of $2.70 - $2.75 per share and has increased the low-end of its previous 2016 operating earnings2 range by $0.10 per share to $3.15$3.20 per share. 

DuPont (NYSE: DD), a science company that brings world-class, innovative products, materials, and services to the global marketplace, today announced second-quarter 2016 GAAP earnings of $1.16 per share and operating earnings2 of $1.24 per share.  Prior year GAAP and operating earnings2 were $1.06 and $1.09 per share, respectively.  Refer to Schedule B for details of significant items.

Second-quarter 2016 sales totaled $7.1 billion, down slightly versus prior year as volume growth of 2 percent was more than offset by pressure from local price, currency and portfolio. 

"Our continued focus on our plan delivered strong results. Solid execution enabled volume growth of 2 percent, and we expanded operating margins across all reportable segments.  Cost savings, mix enrichment from new technologies and lower product costs contributed to the margin expansion. Continued progress on our cost savings program keeps us on track to reach $1 billion on a run-rate basis by year-end," said Ed Breen, chair and CEO of DuPont. "We are pleased with the overwhelming vote of approval the merger received from our shareholders. We are preparing to hit the ground running immediately after closing, which we continue to expect later this year as we work closely with regulators in all relevant jurisdictions. We look forward to standing up three strong businesses and enhancing our ability to offer innovative, value-added solutions and increased choice to our customers."

The following is a summary of business results for each of the company's reportable segments comparing the second quarter with the prior year, unless otherwise noted.

Agriculture – Operating earnings of $865 million increased $93 million, or 12 percent, on lower product costs, higher volumes and cost savings, partially offset by a $36 million negative currency impact.  Increased corn seed and insecticide volumes were partially offset by lower soybean volumes.  Operating margins expanded by 290 basis points.  Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings increased 17 percent.

Electronics & Communications – Operating earnings of $93 million increased $4 million, or 4 percent, as cost savings and lower product costs more than offset lower demand in consumer electronics and a $1 million negative impact from currency. Operating margins expanded by 200 basis points. Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings increased 6 percent.

Industrial Biosciences – Operating earnings of $62 million increased $12 million, or 24 percent, on cost savings partially offset by a $3 million negative impact from currency.  Sales growth in bioactives due to benefits from new product introductions in home and personal care and increased demand in biomaterials were offset by lower volume in CleanTech.  Operating margins expanded by about 350 basis points. Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings increased 30 percent.

Nutrition & Health – Operating earnings of $130 million increased $30 million, or 30 percent, on cost savings and broad-based volume growth led by probiotics and specialty proteins. Operating margins expanded by about 350 basis points. Excluding a $3 million negative impact from currency, operating earnings increased 33 percent.

Performance Materials – Operating earnings of $325 million increased $24 million, or 8 percent. Cost savings, increased demand in automotive markets (primarily in China and North America) and increased volumes for ethylene due to a prior year unplanned ethylene outage, were partially offset by a $16 million negative impact from currency, as well as costs associated with a contractual claim. Operating margins expanded by over 180 basis points. Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings increased 13 percent.

Protection Solutions – Operating earnings of $188 million increased $7 million, or 4 percent, driven by lower product costs and cost savings, partially offset by lower volumes and a $4 million negative currency impact. Operating margins expanded by about 150 basis points. Volume declines in Nomex® thermal-resistant fiber and Kevlar® high-strength material were driven by weakness in the oil and gas industry and delays in military spending. Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings increased 6 percent.

2016 Outlook

The company now expects full-year 2016 GAAP earnings to be in the range of $2.70 to $2.75 per share and operating earnings2 to be in the range of $3.15 to $3.20 per share, an increase of $0.10 per share to the low-end of its previously communicated range. The estimated negative currency impact for full-year 2016 is now expected to be about $0.15 per share.  The company continues to expect a benefit of $0.64 per share from the 2016 global cost savings and restructuring plan and a headwind from a higher base tax rate in 2016 of about $0.10 per share.  The company's full-year 2016 GAAP earnings includes an expected charge of about $0.45 per share for transaction costs associated with the planned merger with Dow. For third-quarter 2016, the company expects operating earnings per share to be 50 percent higher than the prior year.

DuPont will hold a conference call and webcast on Tuesday, July 26, 2016, at 8:00 AM EDT to discuss this news release.  The webcast and additional presentation materials can be accessed by visiting the company's investor website (Events & Presentations) at www.investors.dupont.com.  A replay of the conference call webcast will be available for 90 days by calling 1-630-652-3042, Passcode 7979114#.  For additional information see the investor center at http://www.dupont.com.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This earnings release includes information that does not conform to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are considered non-GAAP measures.  These measures include the company's consolidated results and earnings per share on an operating earnings basis, which excludes significant items and non-operating pension and other postretirement employee benefit costs (operating earnings and operating EPS), total segment pre-tax operating earnings, operating costs and corporate expenses on an operating earnings basis.  Management uses these measures internally for planning, forecasting and evaluating the performance of the Company's segments, including allocating resources and evaluating incentive compensation.  Management believes that these non-GAAP measurements are meaningful to investors as they provide insight with respect to ongoing operating results of the company and provide a more useful comparison of year-over-year results.  Additional non-GAAP measures presented in the earnings release include operating EPS and segment operating earnings excluding currency.  Management believes that operating EPS and segment operating earnings excluding currency are useful in providing additional perspective regarding business results and trends.  These non-GAAP measurements supplement our GAAP disclosures and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance.  Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP are provided in schedules A, C and D.  Details of significant items are provided in schedule B.

Forward-Looking Statements: This communication contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business and financial performance and financial condition, and often contain words such as "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "see," "will," "would," "target," similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words.

Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain, such as statements about the consummation of the proposed transaction and the anticipated benefits thereof. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are based on certain assumptions and expectations of future events which may not be realized. Forward-looking statements also involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the company's control. Some of the important factors that could cause the company's actual results to differ materially from those projected in any such forward-looking statements are: fluctuations in energy and raw material prices; failure to develop and market new products and optimally manage product life cycles; ability to respond to market acceptance, rules, regulations and policies affecting products based on biotechnology and, in general, for products for the agriculture industry; outcome of significant litigation and environmental matters, including realization of associated indemnification assets, if any; failure to appropriately manage process safety and product stewardship issues; changes in laws and regulations or political conditions; global economic and capital markets conditions, such as inflation, interest and currency exchange rates; business or supply disruptions; security threats, such as acts of sabotage, terrorism or war, natural disasters and weather events and patterns which could affect demand as well as availability of products for the agriculture industry; ability to protect and enforce the company's intellectual property rights; successful integration of acquired businesses and separation of underperforming or non-strategic assets or businesses; and risks related to the agreement entered on December 11, 2015, with The Dow Chemical Company pursuant to which the companies have agreed to effect an all-stock merger of equals, including the completion of the proposed transaction on anticipated terms and timing, the ability to fully and timely realize the expected benefits of the proposed transaction and risks related to the intended business separations contemplated to occur after the completion of the proposed transaction. Important risk factors relating to the proposed transaction and intended business separations  include, but are not limited to, (i) the completion of the proposed transaction on anticipated terms and timing, including obtaining  regulatory approvals, anticipated tax treatment, unforeseen liabilities, future capital expenditures, revenues, expenses, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, losses, future prospects, business and management strategies for the management, expansion and growth of the new combined company's operations and other conditions to the completion of the merger, (ii) the ability of Dow and DuPont to integrate the business successfully and to achieve anticipated synergies, risks and costs and pursuit and/or implementation of the potential separations, including anticipated timing, any changes to the configuration of businesses included in the potential separation if implemented, (iii) the intended separation of the agriculture, material science and specialty products businesses of the combined company post-mergers in one or more tax efficient transactions on anticipated terms and timing, including a number of conditions which could delay, prevent or otherwise adversely affect the proposed transactions, including possible issues or delays in obtaining required regulatory approvals or clearances, disruptions in the financial markets or other potential barriers, (iv) potential litigation relating to the proposed transaction that could be instituted against Dow, DuPont or their respective directors, (v) the risk that disruptions from the proposed transaction will harm Dow's or DuPont's business, including current plans and operations, (vi) the ability of Dow or DuPont to retain and hire key personnel, (vii) potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement or completion of the merger, (viii) uncertainty as to the long-term value of DowDuPont common stock, (ix) continued availability of capital and financing and rating agency actions, (x) legislative, regulatory and economic developments, (xi) potential business uncertainty, including changes to existing business relationships, during the pendency of the merger that could affect Dow's and/or DuPont's financial performance, (xii) certain restrictions during the pendency of the merger that may impact Dow's or DuPont's ability to pursue certain business opportunities or strategic transactions and (xiii) unpredictability and severity of catastrophic events, including, but not limited to, acts of terrorism or outbreak of war or hostilities, as well as management's response to any of the aforementioned factors. These risks, as well as other risks associated with the proposed merger, are more fully discussed in the joint proxy statement/prospectus included in the registration statement on Form S-4 declared effective by the SEC on June 9, 2016 (File No. 333-209869), as last amended, (the "Registration Statement") in connection with the proposed merger. While the list of factors presented here is, and the list of factors presented in the Registration Statement are, considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements. Consequences of material differences in results as compared with those anticipated in the forward-looking statements could include, among other things, business disruption, operational problems, financial loss, legal liability to third parties and similar risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on Dow's or DuPont's consolidated financial condition, results of operations, credit rating or liquidity. Neither Dow nor DuPont assumes any obligation to publicly provide revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements regarding the proposed transaction and intended business separations, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws. The company undertakes no duty to publicly revise or update any forward-looking statements as a result of future developments, or new information or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws.

E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company

Schedule of Significant Items from Continuing Operations

(Dollars in millions, except per share amounts)


(1)

Second quarter and first quarter 2016 included charges of $(76) and $(24), respectively, recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses related to costs associated with the planned merger with the Dow Chemical Company and related activities.




Second quarter 2015 included charges of $(25) associated with transaction costs related to the separation of the Performance Chemicals segment consisting of $(5) recorded in other operating charges and $(20) recorded in interest expense.  Second quarter 2015 also includes a tax charge of $(17) due to a state tax rate change associated with the separation. First quarter 2015 included charges of $(12) recorded in other operating charges associated with transaction costs related to the separation of the Performance Chemicals segment.



(2)

The company recorded insurance recoveries of $30 and $35 in the second quarter 2016 and first quarter 2015, respectively, in other operating charges for recovery of costs for customer claims related to the use of the Agriculture's segment Imprelis® herbicide.

First quarter 2016 included a benefit of $23 in other operating charges for reduction in accrual for customer claims related to the use of the Imprelis® herbicide.



(3)

First quarter 2016 included a gain of $369 recorded in other income, net associated with the sale of the DuPont (Shenzhen) Manufacturing Limited entity, which held certain buildings and other assets.  The gain is reflected as a Corporate item.



(4)

Second quarter 2016 included a $90 benefit recorded in employee separation/asset related charges, net associated with the 2016 Global Cost Savings and Restructuring Program.  This benefit was primarily due to the reduction in severance and related benefit costs due to the elimination of positions at a lower cost than expected.  The benefit impacted segment earnings as follows: Agriculture - $5, Electronics & Communications - $8, Industrial Biosciences - $3, Nutrition & Health - $12, Performance Materials - $9, Protection Solutions - $7, and Corporate expenses - $46.




First quarter 2016 included a $(2) restructuring charge recorded in employee separation/asset related charges, net associated with the 2016 Global Cost Savings and Restructuring Program.  This charge was primarily due to the identification of additional projects in certain segments, offset by reduction in severance and related benefit costs.  The net charge impacted segment earnings as follows: Agriculture - $(21), Electronics & Communications - $7, Industrial Biosciences - $1, Nutrition & Health - $1, Performance Materials - $(4), Protection Solutions - $3, Other - $(3), and Corporate expenses - $14.




First quarter 2016 included a $(75) restructuring charge recorded in employee separation/asset related charges, net related to the decision to not re-start the Agriculture segment's insecticide manufacturing facility at the La Porte site located in La Porte, Texas.  The charge included $(41) of asset related charges, $(18) of contract termination costs, and $(16) of employee severance and related benefit costs.




Second quarter 2015 included a $(2) restructuring charge recorded in employee separation/asset related charges, net associated with the 2014 restructuring program. These adjustments were primarily due to the identification of additional projects in certain segments, offset by lower than estimated individual severance costs and workforce reductions achieved through non-severance programs. The net reduction impacted segment earnings for the three months ended as follows: Agriculture - $(4), Electronics & Communications - $11, Industrial Biosciences - $(1), Nutrition & Health - $(4), Performance Materials - $(2), Protection Solutions - $1, and Other - $(3).



(5)

During first quarter of 2015, a $(37) pre-tax impairment charge was recorded in employee separation / asset related charges, net for a cost basis investment within the Other segment.  The assessment resulted from the venture's revised operating plan reflecting underperformance of its European wheat based ethanol facility and deteriorating European ethanol market conditions.  One of the primary investors has communicated they would not fund the revised operating plan of the investee.  As a result, the carrying value of our 6% equity investment in this venture exceeds its fair value.



(6)

First quarter 2015 included a charge of $(40) in other income, net associated with remeasuring the company's Ukrainian hryvnia net monetary assets. Ukraine's central bank adopted a decision to no longer set the indicative hryvnia exchange rate. The hryvnia became a free-floating exchange rate and lost approximately a third of its value through the quarter.



(7)

Second quarter 2015 included a gain of $112, net of legal expenses, recorded in other income, net related to the company's settlement of a legal claim.  This matter relates to the Protection Solutions segment.



(8)

Earnings per share for the year may not equal the sum of quarterly earnings per share due to the changes in average share calculations.
