DuPont Delivers 2Q 2013 Operating EPS of $1.28

Agriculture Sales Grew; Titanium Dioxide Volumes Up

Jul 23, 2013, 06:00 ET from DuPont

WILMINGTON, Del., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPont today announced second quarter 2013 operating earnings per share (EPS) of $1.28, in line with previously announced guidance.  Prior-year second quarter operating earnings were $1.50 per share.  GAAP1 EPS from continuing operations was $1.10 versus $1.15 for the second quarter 2012.  Results reflect strong Agriculture sales, sequentially improving titanium dioxide volumes and lower Performance Chemicals earnings.  

Highlights

  • Net sales were $9.8 billion, 1 percent below the prior year, principally reflecting lower titanium dioxide pricing. Total company volume increased 1 percent with increases in Agriculture, Performance Chemicals, Performance Materials, and Safety & Protection.   Volume declined in Electronics & Communications and Nutrition & Health.
  • For the first half, Agriculture segment sales grew 11 percent driven by seed price gains and volume growth in corn seeds, insecticides and fungicides.  First half operating earnings grew 8 percent despite higher seed input costs pressuring margins.
  • Total segment operating earnings were $1.9 billion versus $2.2 billion in the prior year.  Performance Chemicals operating earnings were down $330 million (about $.27 per share) from peak levels last year, principally reflecting significantly lower titanium dioxide prices.  Titanium dioxide volumes increased 12 percent from second quarter 2012 and 18 percent from first quarter 2013.
  • Cost productivity gains and restructuring savings are on track to meet or exceed full-year targets.
  • The company continues to expect full-year operating earnings to be about $3.85 per share.

"Agriculture sales remained strong in the second quarter and titanium dioxide volume improved.  As expected, this was largely offset by a substantial decline in Performance Chemicals earnings from last year's peak levels," said DuPont Chair and CEO Ellen Kullman.  "We anticipate second half earnings will be significantly better than last year's second half.  We expect to deliver full-year earnings modestly above 2012 results, overcoming steep declines in the titanium dioxide market and economic headwinds in Europe and parts of Asia."

The following is a summary of business results for each of the company's reportable segments in the second quarter which compares the current period with the prior year.  References to selling price are on a U.S. dollar basis, including the impact of currency.

Agriculture – Operating earnings of $941 million declined 1 percent as higher seed input costs were mostly offset by sales growth.  Agriculture sales increased 7 percent primarily due to higher seed prices and insecticide and fungicide volumes.

First half operating earnings of $2.5 billion increased 8 percent, driven by seed price gains and volume growth in corn seeds, insecticides and fungicides, partially offset by higher seed input costs. 

Electronics & Communications – Operating earnings of $95 million declined $4 million due to lower sales volume in photovoltaic markets.  Share gains were more than offset by less materials per watt for photovoltaic modules and reduced selling prices, primarily from pass-through of lower metals prices.  These declines were largely offset by OLED licensing income of $20 million.

Industrial Biosciences – Operating earnings of $43 million were up 2 percent on higher sales for Sorona® polymer for carpeting, but were partially offset by lower enzyme demand for ethanol production and animal nutrition. 

Nutrition & Health Operating earnings of $61 million decreased $44 million primarily due to higher guar inventory costs, lower enablers product line volume, one-time costs associated with harmonizing systems and processes, and growth investments.  Volumes reflect both general market softness in Europe and Asia and unseasonably cool weather in North America and Europe.

Performance Chemicals – Operating earnings of $264 million were $330 million lower, due primarily to price declines in the titanium dioxide market.  Lower prices for refrigerants and fluoropolymers coupled with higher operating costs also contributed to lower operating earnings.  Titanium dioxide volume was up 12 percent from second quarter 2012 and 18 percent from first quarter 2013.

Performance Materials – Operating earnings of $336 million decreased 2 percent primarily due to lower selling prices, partially offset by higher volume.  Volume growth in automotive and packaging markets was partially offset by softness in electronics and industrial markets.  

Safety & Protection – Operating earnings of $172 million decreased $9 million as higher volume and productivity gains were offset by weaker sales mix and an unfavorable currency impact.  Higher volume reflects increased demand for U.S. ballistics military protection, protective garments and construction products.

Outlook
As previously announced, the company continues to expect its full-year 2013 operating EPS to be about $3.85, overcoming increased currency headwinds and market challenges associated with a sluggish global economy.  The company further expects that approximately 60 percent of its second half 2013 operating EPS outlook of about $1.00 will be earned in the fourth quarter.  DuPont anticipates continuing agricultural growth in Latin America and a strong start to the North American season, combined with a gradual increase in demand for its industrial products.

(a)

Second and first quarter 2013 and second and first quarter 2012 included charges of $(80), $(35), $(265) and $(50), respectively, recorded in Other operating charges associated with the company's process to fairly resolve claims related to the use of Imprelis® herbicide, bringing the total charges to $(865) at June 30, 2013.  The company will continue to evaluate reported claim damage as additional information becomes available. It is reasonably possible that additional charges could result related to this matter and the company currently estimates that total charges could be about $900. The company has an applicable insurance program with a deductible equal to the first $100 of costs and expenses. The insurance program limits are $725 for costs and expenses in excess of the $100. The company has submitted and will continue to submit requests for payment to its insurance carriers for costs associated with this matter. The process of seeking insurance recovery is ongoing and the timing and outcome are uncertain. This matter relates to the Agriculture segment.

(b)

First quarter 2013 included a net tax benefit of $42 consisting of a $68 benefit for the 2013 extension of certain U.S business tax provisions offset by a ($26) charge related to the global distribution of Performance Coatings cash proceeds.

(c)

Second quarter 2013 includes a charge of ($11) in Other income, net related to interest on a prior year tax position.  Second quarter 2013 also includes a charge of ($49) associated with a change in accrual for a prior year tax position offset by a $33 benefit for an enacted tax law change.

(d)

Second quarter 2012 included a charge of ($137) recorded in Other operating charges primarily related to the company's settlement of litigation with Invista.  This matter relates to Other.  

(e)

Second quarter 2012 included a pre-tax gain of $122 recorded in Other income, net associated with the sale of an equity method investment in the Electronics & Communications segment.

(f)

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

SCHEDULE D (continued)

Exchange Gains/Losses on Operating Earnings

The company routinely uses forward exchange contracts to offset its net exposures, by currency, related to the foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities of its operations. The objective of this program is to maintain an approximately balanced position in foreign currencies in order to minimize, on an after-tax basis, the effects of exchange rate changes. The net pre-tax exchange gains and losses are recorded in Other income, net and the related tax impact is recorded in Provision for (benefit from) income taxes on the Consolidated Income Statements.
