DuPont Reports Q2 Operating Earnings Per Share of $1.17; Reaffirms Updated Full-Year Outlook

WILMINGTON, Del., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Operating earnings per share of $1.17 were down moderately from $1.28 per share last year, in-line with the company's expectations communicated in its June 26th announcement. GAAP1 earnings per share were $1.15 versus $1.10 last year.
  • Revenue was $9.7 billion versus $9.8 billion in the same period last year. Volume growth in Crop Protection, Nutrition & Health and most industrial businesses was offset by the impact of portfolio changes, a planned maintenance shutdown and lower corn seed volumes.
  • Strong operating earnings growth in the quarter was delivered by Industrial Biosciences (+37 percent), Nutrition & Health (+72 percent) and Safety & Protection (+22 percent).
  • The strategic redesign initiative announced on June 26th to reset the company's operating model is under way across all businesses and support functions.
  • The Performance Chemicals separation remains on track for mid-2015.
  • The company also announced today a 4 percent increase in its 3Q 2014 dividend, its third increase in the past 27 months.

DuPont (NYSE: DD), a science company that brings world-class, innovative products, materials and services to the global marketplace, today announced second quarter 2014 operating earnings of $1.17 per share compared to $1.28 per share in the prior year.  GAAP1 earnings per share were $1.15 versus $1.10 last year.  Consolidated sales were $9.7 billion, 1 percent below last year, reflecting portfolio changes, as price, volume and currency were in line with the prior year period. 

"While lower Agriculture earnings impacted our results this quarter, we continue to see strong science-driven growth in this segment over the long term.  We are steadily advancing DuPont's strategy to build and strengthen world-leading positions in agriculture and nutrition, bio-based industrials and advanced materials," said DuPont Chair and CEO Ellen Kullman.  "As we move ahead with our Performance Chemicals separation, we also have launched the initial stage of a broad initiative to reset our operating model.  This work is already gaining traction and will continue to expand, positioning DuPont to drive greater growth and value with a simplified, streamlined support structure and a smaller cost base - consistent with the purpose, strategy and needs of the DuPont company, post-separation."

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 $836 million declined $105 million, or 11 percent, on lower corn seed volumes, lower North America herbicide volumes and higher seed inventory write-downs.  This was partially offset by higher seed prices, higher insecticide volumes, higher soybean volumes and lower seed input costs.

Electronics & Communications – Operating earnings of $89 million declined $6 million, or 6 percent.  Sales volumes grew in consumer electronics and operating earnings benefited from productivity improvements.  However, the prior year included $20 million of OLED licensing income. 

Industrial Biosciences – Operating earnings of $59 million increased $16 million, or 37 percent, from continued strong enzyme demand for animal nutrition, food and ethanol production.  This was partially offset by lower sales for Sorona® polymer for carpeting.

Nutrition & Health – Operating earnings of $105 million increased $44 million, or 72 percent, from broad based volume growth and improved mix, lower raw material costs, productivity gains and the absence of one-time costs in the prior year.

Performance Chemicals – Operating earnings of $251 million were down $17 million, or 6 percent, due primarily to lower prices for refrigerants and fluoropolymers, partially offset by productivity improvements.

Performance Materials – Operating earnings of $303 million decreased $29 million, or 9 percent.  Gains from strong Performance Polymers volumes into global automotive markets were offset by a scheduled maintenance shutdown at the company's Orange, Texas ethylene unit.  Absent that shutdown, segment operating earnings would have increased. 

Safety & Protection – Operating earnings of $209 million increased $37 million, or 22 percent, primarily due to higher volumes in Protection Technologies, lower product costs and productivity improvements.

Outlook

The company reaffirms its recently updated outlook for full-year 2014 operating earnings of $4.00-$4.10 per share, an increase of 3 to 6 percent from $3.88 per share earned in 2013, based on expected growth in global industrial market demand.  The company anticipates a strong second half in 2014 with operating earnings per share of $1.25 - $1.35, about 40 percent of which is expected in the third quarter.  

DuPont will hold a conference call and webcast on Tuesday, July 22, 2014, at 9:00 AM EDT to discuss this news release.  The webcast 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 30 days by calling 1-630-652-3042, Passcode 37666079#.  For additional information see the investor center at http://www.dupont.com.

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.
