Jul 28, 2015, 06:00 ET from DuPont

WILMINGTON, Del., July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Delivered second-quarter operating earnings per share of $1.18 versus $1.17 in prior year. Performance Chemicals operating earnings were down $0.11 per share from prior year. GAAP earnings per share were $1.03 versus $1.15 in prior year.
  • Segment pre-tax operating earnings of $1,586 million included about $210 million, or $0.17 per share, of negative impact from currency. Excluding the impact of currency, operating EPS would have increased about 15 percent versus prior year.
  • Operating margins improved in 5 of the 6 ongoing operating segments which comprise the next generation DuPont including Performance Materials, Electronics & Communications, Agriculture, Nutrition & Health, and Safety & Protection. Margin improvement was primarily driven by increased productivity.
  • Cost reductions from operational redesign contributed $0.10 per share to second-quarter operating earnings; on track to deliver approximately $0.40 per share in savings in 2015.
  • On a continuing operations basis, DuPont expects full-year 2015 operating earnings to be about $3.10 per share, excluding $0.80 per share in previously anticipated full year earnings from Performance Chemicals. Estimated negative currency impact expected to be approximately $0.60 per share. Prior-year operating earnings were $3.36 per share on a comparable basis.

DuPont (NYSE: DD), a science company that brings world-class, innovative products, materials, and services to the global marketplace, today announced second quarter 2015 operating earnings of $1.18 per share compared to $1.17 per share in the prior year.  GAAP1 earnings were $1.03 per share, compared to $1.15 per share in the prior year.

Second quarter sales were $8.6 billion, down 11 percent versus prior year due to negative impacts from currency (5 percent), portfolio changes (2 percent), volume (2 percent) and local price and product mix (2 percent).  Segment pre-tax operating earnings of $1,586 million included about $210 million, or $0.17 per share, of negative impact from currency.  Operating earnings included $0.09 per share of benefit related to exchange gains and taxes, attributable to prior periods. Performance Chemicals segment operating earnings were $113 million, or $0.10 per share, a 55 percent reduction versus prior year. 

DuPont's board of directors approved a third quarter dividend of 38 cents per share, the 444th consecutive quarterly dividend since the company's first dividend in the fourth quarter of 1904. The third quarter dividend of 38 cents per share of common stock is payable on Sept. 11, 2015, to stockholders of record at the close of business on Aug. 14, 2015. Regular quarterly dividends of $1.125 per share on the $4.50 series preferred stock and $0.875 cents per share on the $3.50 series preferred stock also were declared, both payable on Oct. 23, 2015, to stockholders of record as of Oct. 9, 2015.

The separation of Chemours was completed on July 1, 2015. In the first quarter 2015, DuPont announced its intention to buy back shares using the approximately $4 billion of distribution proceeds received from Chemours. In connection with the completion of the spin, DuPont's board has authorized the company to purchase and retire $2 billion of common stock by Dec. 31, 2015 with the remainder to be purchased and retired by Dec. 31, 2016. The company expects to use an accelerated share repurchase plan in connection with the $2 billion buyback by year end.

"We continued to improve margins across most of our ongoing businesses through our constant focus on productivity, even as we address industrywide challenges in agriculture and ongoing currency headwinds," said Ellen Kullman, DuPont Chair and CEO.  "With the separation of our Performance Chemicals segment now complete, the next generation DuPont is leveraging our innovation platform to drive greater growth and value, with a continued emphasis on cost productivity, actively managing our portfolio, and the disciplined return of capital."

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

Agriculture – Operating earnings of $778 million decreased $58 million, or 7 percent, as improved productivity and increases in price from new products were more than offset by lower volumes and an $84 million negative currency impact.  Decreased volumes are due to reduced soybean sales, lower crop protection volumes and reductions in global corn planted area.  Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings would have increased by about 3 percent.

Electronics & Communications – Operating earnings of $93 million increased $4 million, or 4 percent, as productivity gains more than offset volume decreases and a $3 million negative impact from currency. Volume growth in Tedlar® film in photovoltaics and consumer electronics was more than offset by competitive pressures impacting Solamet® paste. Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings would have increased by about 8 percent.

Industrial Biosciences – Operating earnings of $50 million decreased $9 million, or 15 percent, as increased demand for bioactives was more than offset by lower pricing and a $6 million negative impact of currency. Increased enzyme demand, principally in animal nutrition, health and personal care, and food markets, was offset by lower biomaterial sales. Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings would have been about 5 percent lower than prior year.

Nutrition & Health – Operating earnings of $103 million decreased $2 million, or 2 percent, as productivity gains were more than offset by a $12 million negative impact of currency. Volume growth in probiotics, texturants, cultures, and ingredient systems were offset by a decline in specialty proteins.  Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings would have increased by about 10 percent.

Performance Chemicals – Operating earnings of $113 million decreased $138 million, or 55 percent, driven primarily by lower prices for titanium dioxide, and $43 million from the negative impact of currency. Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings would have declined by about 38 percent.

Performance Materials – Operating earnings of $311 million increased $8 million, or 3 percent, driven by broad based improved product mix, productivity and volume growth for ethylene as prior year ethylene sales were constrained due to the scheduled outage at the Orange, Texas ethylene unit. This was offset by $42 million of negative impact of currency, the portfolio change from the sale of Glass Laminating Solutions/Vinyls, and a negative impact from an unplanned ethylene outage.  Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings would have increased by about 17 percent.

Safety & Protection – Operating earnings of $195 million decreased $14 million, or 7 percent, as productivity improvements and volume growth in medical packaging and protective garments were more than offset by $20 million of negative currency impact, the portfolio impact of the Sontara® divestiture, and lower demand, particularly from the oil & gas industry, for Nomex® thermal resistant fiber and Sustainable Solutions offerings.  Excluding the impact of currency, operating earnings would have increased by about 3 percent.

Outlook

Consistent with continuing weakness in global agricultural markets, the company is reducing expectations for the year in its Agriculture segment due to weaker demand in global crop protection markets, reduced expectations for corn area in Latin America, and lower than expected soybean volumes in North America. The company continues to anticipate that the operational redesign will deliver savings of approximately $0.40 per share in 2015.  As a result, the company expects operating earnings per share for 2015 to be about $3.10 per share for the full year, excluding $0.80 per share of anticipated full-year earnings from the Performance Chemicals segment.  This represents a $0.10 per share reduction from the prior outlook of $4.00 per share, which included the Performance Chemicals segment.

DuPont will hold a conference call and webcast on Tuesday, July 28, 2015, at 9:00 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 38251527#.  For additional information see the investor center at http://www.dupont.com.

These adjustments were primarily due to lower than estimated individual severance costs and workforce reductions achieved through non-severance programs, partially offset by identification of additional projects in certain segments. There was no impact of these adjustments to the company's interim Consolidated Income Statements. 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 Chemicals - $2, Performance Materials - $(2), Safety & Protection $1, and Other - $(3).

 

Second quarter 2014 included a $(263) restructuring charge recorded in employee separation/asset related charges, net, consisting of $(166) of severance and related benefit costs, $(94) of asset shut downs, and $(3) of other non-personnel charges as a result of the company's plan to reduce residual costs associated with the separation of the Performance Chemicals segment and to improve productivity across all businesses and functions.  Pre-tax charges by segment are: Agriculture - $(47), Electronics & Communications - $(68), Industrial Biosciences - $(2), Nutrition & Health - $(8), Performance Chemicals - $(19), Performance Materials - $(29), Safety & Protection - $(31), Other - $(2), and Corporate expenses - $(57).

(3)

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 Safety & Protection segment.

(4)

The company recorded insurance recoveries of $35 in other operating charges, net, in the first quarter 2015, in the Agriculture segment, for recovery of costs for customer claims related to the use of the Imprelis® herbicide. The company had accruals of $216 related to these customer claims at June 30, 2015.

(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 2014 included a charge of $(58) recorded in other income, net associated with remeasuring the company's Venezuelan net monetary assets from the official exchange rate to the SICAD II exchange system.

(8)

Second quarter 2014 included a gain of $391 recorded in other income, net associated with the sale of Glass Laminating Solutions/Vinyls in the Performance Materials segment.

(9)

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

Exchange Gains/Losses on Operating Earnings(3)

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.
