  • Implemented initiatives to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 including actions to deliver more than $500 million of working capital improvement and reducing capital expenditures by ~$500 million versus the prior year

DuPont (NYSE: DD) today announced financial results for the first quarter 2020.

"In the face of an unprecedented health, financial, and humanitarian crisis, we are prioritizing the safety and well-being of our employees, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders," said Ed Breen, DuPont Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our colleagues are working tirelessly to support the massive effort to provide critical protection to healthcare and other front-line workers who bear the greatest burden in the fight against this pandemic. Our innovation capabilities are enabling us to rapidly create and deploy new tools in this battle and we will continue to advance those, along with targeted in-kind and financial donations, to provide as many as possible with our solutions."

"By continuing to invest in our R&D engine across the Company, prioritizing cash generation, further improving our cost structure, and advancing our portfolio rationalization efforts, we delivered first quarter results above our initial expectations in each core segment and positioned ourselves for future growth and profitability."

"Along with IFF, we remain committed to creating the global leader in high-value ingredients and solutions for Food & Beverage, Home & Personal Care, and Health & Wellness markets," Breen added. "The combination of our Nutrition & Biosciences business with IFF remains on track for a 1Q 2021 closing(1), and we plan to file the initial registration statement with the SEC in the coming days. This represents another important milestone towards creating tremendous opportunity for our employees and customers, as well as significant value for our shareholders."

COVID-19 Update

As an essential provider of personal protective equipment and important materials in other companies' supply chains, DuPont employees across the globe are committed to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic. During the quarter the Company announced a number of initiatives in support of this mission, including:

  • Increased production of Tyvek® garments by more than nine million per month, which is more than double the amount produced for any prior crisis
  • Launched #TyvekTogether campaign, an initiative to deliver an additional five to six million garments per month through the rapid development of a safe, easier-to-use version of Tyvek® and by enabling others to join DuPont in protecting frontline responders, with free access to our designs and usage instructions
  • Partnered with Cummins, Inc. to use DuPont filtration technology to help strengthen the supply of N95 respirator masks

Due to the uncertainties presented by COVID-19, DuPont has also implemented a number of proactive measures to enhance its already strong liquidity position and improve working capital.

  • Entered into a 364-day $1.0 billion revolving credit facility, replacing the $750 million revolving credit facility that was set to expire in June 2020
  • Issued $2.0 billion bond offering; the proceeds of which will be used to satisfy debt maturities due in November 2020. This facility replaces the $2.0 billion 364-day delayed-draw facility announced in April 2020
  • Delayed certain capital investments; now expecting to reduce capital expenditures by ~$500 million versus prior year
  • Idled production at several manufacturing sites, predominantly production plants within the Transportation & Industrial segment, due to the current global automotive environment
  • Accelerated working capital initiatives across each business
  • Increased the anticipated benefits from the incremental 2020 cost actions previously announced; now targeting $180 million of savings in 2020

"We took quick, decisive action to manage our working capital and to better align our production volumes with the demand we expect in the near term," Breen continued. "Additionally, our recent bond offering and our new $1 billion revolving credit facility further strengthen our balance sheet and improve our liquidity position. With the addition of these, and the special cash payment associated with the closing of the N&B and IFF transaction, we have a solid plan in place to satisfy our debt maturities. This provides us the flexibility needed to navigate these uncertain times."

First Quarter 2020 Results

Net sales totaled $5.2 billion, down 4 percent versus the year-ago period. On an organic basis, net sales were down 2 percent as 8 percent organic growth in Electronics & Imaging and 3 percent organic growth in Nutrition & Biosciences was more than offset by organic sales declines in the other segments.

GAAP Income (loss) from continuing operations totaled $(610) million, versus pro forma GAAP Income from continuing operations of $18 million in the year-ago period. Operating EBITDA(2) was $1.3 billion, down 8 percent versus pro forma operating EBITDA(2) in the prior year. Strong gross margin improvement was more than offset by the absence of prior year gains in our Electronics & Imaging and Safety & Construction segments, nylon pricing pressures, and volume declines across the Transportation & Industrial and Non- Core segments.

GAAP EPS from continuing operations totaled $(0.83) versus pro forma GAAP EPS from continuing operations in the year-ago period of $0.02; the decline is mostly attributable to higher significant items, incremental merger-related amortization expense, a higher tax rate and lower segment results, partially offset by the absence of costs historically allocated to Dow and Corteva. Adjusted EPS(2) decreased 9 percent to $0.84, compared with pro forma adjusted EPS(2) in the year-ago period of $0.92 primarily driven by the absence of prior year gains of $0.08, nylon headwinds, and a higher tax rate partially offset by a lower share count, lower depreciation and amortization, and lower foreign exchange losses.

Over $200 million of cash was generated in the quarter with cash from operating activities of $718 million and gross proceeds from the sale of the Compound Semiconductor Solutions business of approximately $420 million offset by capital expenditures of $481 million, share repurchases of $232 million, and dividends of $222 million. The year-over-year change in cash from working capital improved over $300 million in the quarter versus the same period last year.

First Quarter 2020 Segment Highlights

Electronics & Imaging
Electronics & Imaging reported net sales of $884 million, up 7 percent from the year-ago period. Organic sales were up 8 percent driven by a 9 percent volume gain offset by a 1 percent decline in price. Currency was a 1 percent headwind.

Volume gains were led by Semiconductor Technologies where new technology ramps within logic and foundry, coupled with robust demand for memory in servers and data centers delivered double-digit growth versus the year-ago period. Volume growth within Interconnect Solutions was also strong, driven by higher material content in premium, next-generation smartphones. Within Image Solutions, volume gains in flexographic plates, mainly into consumer packaged goods, were mostly offset by weakness in inks and OLEDs.

Operating EBITDA for the segment was $253 million, a decrease of 12 percent from pro forma operating EBITDA of $288 million in the year-ago period, driven primarily by the absence of a $50 million gain associated with an asset sale recognized in the prior year.

Nutrition & Biosciences
Nutrition & Biosciences reported net sales of $1.5 billion, up 1 percent from the year-ago period. Organic sales were up 3 percent with a 2 percent price improvement and a 1 percent volume gain. Currency was a 2 percent headwind.

Sales gains were led by Health & Biosciences with high-single digit growth versus the same period last year. The probiotics business recorded its strongest quarter ever with mid-teens growth as key initiatives to strengthen the North America market were implemented and consumer demand for immune health strengthened globally. Strong consumer demand in the home & personal care and animal nutrition markets also provided double-digit growth in the quarter. Food & Beverage sales were up slightly on an organic basis with improvement in protein solutions driven by increased demand for packaged foods and on-going strength in the plant-based meat category, off-set by continued upstream challenges in the sweeteners supply chain. Steady demand across Pharma Solutions contributed to the gains in the quarter.

Operating EBITDA for the segment was $385 million, an increase of 10 percent from pro forma operating EBITDA of $349 million in the year-ago period. Pricing gains across the segment and a favorable product mix led by the strength in Health & Biosciences provided a 210 basis point improvement in segment operating EBITDA margins.

Transportation & Industrial
Transportation & Industrial reported net sales of $1.1 billion, down 13 percent from the year-ago period. Organic sales were down 12 percent with volume down 8 percent and price lower by 4 percent. Currency was a 1 percent headwind.

Volume declined 8 percent due to lower auto builds, as global automotive production was down nearly 25 percent versus the year-ago period. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on other key industrial markets in addition to automotive contributed to the double-digit volume declines within both Mobility Solutions and Industrial & Consumer. In Healthcare and Specialty, Kalrez® revenues increased mid-teens percent as strong demand for differentiated, high performance seals in semiconductor manufacturing more than offset weaker demand within oil and gas.

Operating EBITDA for the segment was $308 million, a decrease of 17 percent from pro forma operating EBITDA of $373 million in the year-ago period, driven primarily by the impact of the volume and price declines within Mobility Solutions partially offset by raw material tailwinds and favorable product mix.

Safety & Construction
Safety & Construction reported net sales of $1.3 billion, down 1 percent from the year-ago period. Organic sales were down 2 percent with a 2 percent price improvement offset by a 4 percent decline in volume. Recent acquisitions in the Water Solutions business increased reported sales by 2 percent. Currency was a 1 percent headwind.

Demand for Tyvek® protective garments was robust, leading to a 55 percent increase in garment sales as compared to the same quarter last year which was partially enabled by efforts to increase capacity. Despite the strength in protective garments, sales in the Safety Solutions business declined mid-single digits as demand weakened across industrial, aerospace, and defense markets as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and challenges in the oil and gas industry. Similarly, Shelter Solutions sales declined low-single digits as construction activity was impacted by stay-at-home orders issued across the globe. Demand continued to be strong in Water Solutions which drove mid-single digit organic growth in the quarter despite temporary softness in the China market at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Operating EBITDA for the segment totaled $368 million, a decrease of 2 percent from pro forma operating EBITDA of $374 million in the year-ago period. The absence of prior year licensing income of $26 million and lower volumes more than offset improved product mix and productivity actions.

Non-Core
Non-Core reported net sales of $366 million, down 19 percent from the year-ago period. Organic sales were down 10 percent driven by 12 percent volume declines offset by 2 percent pricing gains. The September 2019 divestiture of the DuPont Sustainable Solutions business reduced sales by 9 percent. Currency was flat.

Significant volume declines due to weak demand for trichlorosilane (TCS) and for Sorona® fiber in carpet and apparel applications was partially offset by volume gains in pastes.

Operating EBITDA for the segment was $42 million, a decrease of 57 percent from pro forma operating EBITDA of $98 million in the year-ago period with the benefits from price more than offset by significantly lower volumes of TCS and Sorona® fiber and lower Hemlock Semiconductor equity earnings.

Outlook

"DuPont has weathered many challenges and crises over its two centuries and our team is navigating this period with the benefit of our cumulative expertise," Breen said. "While it is still impossible to predict timing, our markets will eventually stabilize and return to growth. In the interim we are prioritizing the safety and health of our employees, safely maintaining our operations, strengthening our balance sheet, and partnering with other industry leaders to combat this pandemic. Through April, we continue to see strength in personal protection, water filtration, food and beverage, electronics and probiotics. Automotive, oil and gas, and select industrial end markets continue to suffer. We are monitoring developments across our geographies and operations on a daily basis and we will continue to adapt to the changing environment. Over the longer term, our resilient people and our operational discipline will help assure that we weather this period, deliver for our stakeholders, and emerge strong when recovery eventually begins," Breen said.

"We have intensified our focus on what we can control in this rapidly changing business environment by executing on a disciplined plan. This includes optimizing working capital, deferring certain capital expenditures, improving our cost structure, and strengthening our liquidity," said Lori Koch, DuPont Chief Financial Officer. "These actions will ensure our balance sheet remains strong and all of our businesses are positioned for growth when market demand returns."

Overview

Effective August 31, 2017, pursuant to the merger of equals transaction contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 11, 2015, as amended on March 31, 2017, The Dow Chemical Company and its consolidated subsidiaries ("Historical Dow") and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company and its consolidated subsidiaries ("Historical EID") each merged with subsidiaries of DowDuPont and as a result, Historical Dow and Historical EID became subsidiaries of DowDuPont (the "DWDP Merger"). Prior to the DWDP Merger, DowDuPont did not conduct any business activities other than those required for its formation and matters contemplated by the Merger Agreement. Historical Dow was determined to be the accounting acquirer in the DWDP Merger and as a result, Historical EID's assets and liabilities were reflected at fair value as of the close of the DWDP Merger.

Effective as of 5:00 p.m. on April 1, 2019, DowDuPont completed the separation of its materials science business into a separate and independent public company by way of a distribution of Dow Inc. ("Dow") through a pro rata dividend in-kind of all of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Dow's common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Dow Common Stock"), to holders of DowDuPont's common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "DowDuPont Common Stock"), as of the close of business on March 21, 2019 (the "Dow Distribution").

Effective as of 12:01 a.m. on June 1, 2019, DuPont completed the separation of its agriculture business into a separate and independent public company by way of a distribution of Corteva Inc. ("Corteva") through a pro rata dividend in-kind of all of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Corteva's common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Corteva Common Stock"), to holders of DuPont de Nemours, Inc.'s common stock, par value $0.01 per share, as of the close of business on May 24, 2019 (the "Corteva Distribution" and, together with the Dow Distribution, the "Distributions").

Following the Corteva Distribution, DuPont holds the specialty products business as continuing operations. The results of operations of DuPont for the three months ended March 31, 2019 present the historical financial results of Dow and Corteva as discontinued operations. The cash flows related to Dow and Corteva have not been segregated and are included in the interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the applicable period.

The unaudited pro forma Consolidated Statements of Operations (discussed in the following section) included herein include costs previously allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the definition of expenses related to discontinued operations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Codification 205, "Presentation of Financial Statements" ("ASC 205") and thus are reflected in the Company's results of continuing operations. A significant portion of these costs relate to Historical Dow and consist of leveraged services provided through service centers, as well as other corporate overhead costs related to information technology, finance, manufacturing, research & development, sales & marketing, supply chain, human resources, sourcing & logistics, legal and communications, public affairs & government affairs functions. These costs are no longer incurred by the Company following the Distributions.

Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Information

In order to provide the most meaningful comparison of results of operations and results by segment, supplemental unaudited pro forma financial information has been included in the following financial schedules. The unaudited pro forma financial information (the "pro forma financial statements") is derived from DuPont's Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes, adjusted to give effect to certain events directly attributable to the Distributions and Financings (as defined below). In contemplation of the Distributions and to achieve the respective credit profiles of each of DuPont, Dow, and Corteva, in the fourth quarter of 2018, DowDuPont consummated a public underwritten offer of eight series of senior unsecured notes (the "2018 Senior Notes") in the aggregate principal amount of $12.7 billion and entered into a term loan agreement consisting of two term loan facilities (the "Term Loan Facilities") in the aggregate principal amount of $3.0 billion. In May 2019, the funds from the Term Loan Facilities were drawn, along with the issuance of approximately $1.4 billion in commercial paper (the "Funding CP Issuance" together with the 2018 Senior Notes and Term Loan Facilities, the "Financings"). The net proceeds from the Financings together with cash from operations were used to fund cash contributions to Dow and Corteva, and DowDuPont's $3.0 billion share repurchase program which was completed in the first quarter of 2019 (the "Share Repurchase Program").

The pro forma financial statements were prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X. The historical consolidated financial information has been adjusted to give effect to pro forma events that are (1) directly attributable to the Distributions and the Financings (collectively the "Transactions"), (2) factually supportable and (3) with respect to the Consolidated Statements of Operations, expected to have a continuing impact on the results. The unaudited pro forma Statements of Operations for the three months ended March 31, 2019 give effect to the pro forma events as if they had been consummated on January 1, 2018. There were no pro forma adjustments for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Restructuring or integration activities or other costs following the Distributions that may be incurred to achieve cost or growth synergies of DuPont are not reflected. The pro forma financial statements provide shareholders with summary financial information and historical data that is on a basis consistent with how DuPont reports current financial information.

The pro forma financial statements are presented for informational purposes only, and do not purport to represent what DuPont's results of operations or financial position would have been had the Transactions occurred on the dates indicated, nor do they purport to project the results of operations or financial position for any future period or as of any future date.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release includes information that does not conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") and are considered non-GAAP measures. Management uses these measures internally for planning, forecasting and evaluating the performance of the Company, including allocating resources. DuPont's management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they provide additional information related to the ongoing performance of DuPont to offer a more meaningful comparison related to future results of operations. These non-GAAP financial measures supplement disclosures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and should not be viewed as an alternative to U.S. GAAP. Furthermore, such non-GAAP measures may not be consistent with similar measures provided or used by other companies. Reconciliations for these non-GAAP measures to U.S. GAAP are provided in the Selected Financial Information and Non-GAAP Measures starting on page 14 and on the Investors section of the Company's website. Non-GAAP measures included in this release are defined below. The Company has not provided forward-looking U.S. GAAP financial measures or a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of certain future events. These events include, among others, the impact of portfolio changes, including asset sales, mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures; contingent liabilities related to litigation, environmental and indemnifications matters; impairments and discrete tax items. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could have a material impact on U.S. GAAP results for the guidance period.

Pro forma adjusted earnings per common share from continuing operations - diluted ("Pro forma adjusted EPS"), is defined as pro forma earnings per common share from continuing operations - diluted, excluding the after-tax impact of significant items, after-tax impact of amortization expense associated with intangibles acquired as part of the DWDP Merger, after-tax impact of non-operating pension / other post employment benefits ("OPEB") benefits / charges and the after-tax impact of costs historically allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the criteria to be recorded as discontinued operations. Adjusted earnings per common share from continuing operations - diluted ("Adjusted EPS"), is defined as earnings per common share from continuing operations - diluted, excluding the after-tax impact of significant items, after-tax impact of amortization expense associated with intangibles acquired as part of the DWDP Merger and the after-tax impact of non-operating pension / OPEB benefits / charges. Although amortization of Historical EID intangibles acquired as part of the DWDP Merger is excluded from these non-GAAP measures, management believes it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation. Amortization of intangible assets that relate to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. Any future acquisitions may result in amortization of additional intangible assets. Management estimates amortization expense in 2020 associated with intangibles acquired as part of the DWDP Merger to be approximately $1.9 billion on a pre-tax basis, or approximately $2.00 per share.

Pro forma operating EBITDA, is defined as earnings (i.e. pro forma income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes) before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-operating pension / OPEB benefits / charges, and foreign exchange gains / losses, excluding the impact of costs historically allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the criteria to be recorded as discontinued operations and adjusted to exclude significant items. Operating EBITDA, is defined as earnings (i.e. income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes) before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-operating pension / OPEB benefits / charges, and foreign exchange gains / losses, adjusted to exclude significant items.

Significant items are items that arise outside the ordinary course of the Company's business that management believes may cause misinterpretation of underlying business performance, both historical and future, based on a combination of some or all of the item's size, unusual nature and infrequent occurrence. Management classifies as significant items certain costs and expenses associated with integration and separation activities related to transformational acquisitions and divestitures as they are considered unrelated to ongoing business performance.

Organic Sales is defined as net sales excluding the impacts of currency and portfolio.
