DuPont Reports 1Q 2013 Operating EPS of $1.56

06:00 EDT Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Agriculture Segment Achieves Record Operating Earnings, Company Raises Dividend

WILMINGTON, Del., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPont (NYSE: DD) today announced first quarter 2013 operating earnings per share (EPS) of $1.56 versus prior year earnings of $1.64.  GAAP1 EPS from continuing operations was $1.47 versus $1.48 in the prior year.  Primary drivers of results for the quarter were record Agriculture operating earnings offset by an expected decline in Performance Chemicals.  DuPont reaffirmed its full year 2013 EPS outlook and today announced a 5 percent dividend increase.

1Q 2013 Highlights

- Sales of $10.4 billion were up 2 percent, reflecting volume growth.  A one percent increase in local prices    was offset by currency impact.

- Record Agriculture operating earnings of $1.5 billion were up 13 percent.  Sales increased 14 percent   driven by strong volume growth, particularly in North America and Latin America, and higher pricing   from new seed and crop protection products.

- Total segment operating earnings of $2.3 billion were down 8 percent, largely due to a $320 million decline   (about $.26 EPS) in Performance Chemicals from last year's high levels.

- The company completed the sale of the Performance Coatings segment, executed a $1 billion share   buyback and reduced its net debt.  

- Cost productivity gains and restructuring savings are on track to meet or exceed full year targets.

- The company reaffirms its outlook for full-year 2013 operating earnings of $3.85-$4.05 per share, an   increase of 2-7 percent from $3.77 per share earned in 2012.

"The first quarter finished as expected, with the strong Agriculture performance and Performance Chemicals' decline from peak levels last year," said DuPont Chair and CEO Ellen Kullman. "Our strategies for growth and improved return on capital are working as we continue to focus on delivering science-powered innovation and industry-leading productivity improvement.  We remain committed to delivering value to our shareholders as demonstrated by executing our share buyback, strengthening our balance sheet and increasing our dividend."

Global Consolidated Sales ? 1st QuarterFirst quarter 2013 sales were $10.4 billion, up 2 percent versus last year, with 2 percent higher volume.  Negative currency impact offset higher local selling prices.  Volume was primarily driven by increases for Agriculture in North America and Latin America.  The table below shows first quarter regional sales and variances versus first quarter 2012.

The following is a summary of business results for each of the company's reportable segments in the first quarter comparing 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 $1.5 billion improved 13 percent on higher volume and price, partially offset by higher seed input costs which pressured margin slightly.  Earnings improvement was driven by a 14 percent increase in sales reflecting strong corn seed sales in North America and Brazil and strong Crop Protection volumes in North America and Latin America.

Electronics & Communications ? Operating earnings of $49 million declined $10 million driven largely by lower sales in photovoltaic markets, as share gains were more than offset by lower usage of materials per photovoltaic module.

Industrial Biosciences ? Operating earnings of $41 million were up 5 percent on higher demand and lower input costs for Sorona® polymer for carpeting and growth in food enzymes, partially offset by lower enzyme demand for ethanol production.   

Nutrition & Health ? Operating earnings of $76 million decreased $3 million.  Pricing gains, strong demand for probiotics and specialty protein solution and the realization of integration synergies were offset by higher raw material costs, primarily in enablers.

Performance Chemicals ? Operating earnings of $251 million were $320 million lower, due primarily to substantial price declines in the titanium dioxide market and weak demand for fluoropolymers, particularly in North America and Asia Pacific.  Titanium dioxide volume was essentially flat year-over-year, but increased 8 percent from fourth quarter 2012.

Performance Materials ? Operating earnings of $292 million increased 5 percent due primarily to lower feedstock costs and higher sales volume in packaging markets, partially offset by weak demand in the European automotive market and continued softness in the industrial and electronics markets.

Safety & Protection ? Operating earnings of $138 million decreased $21 million reflecting a weaker sales mix, as well as lower plant utilization.  Lower sales primarily reflect significantly reduced demand for military protection products and continued softness in certain industrial markets.    

Additional information is available on the DuPont Investor Center website at http://www.investors.dupont.com.

Outlook  The company reaffirms its outlook for full-year 2013 operating earnings of $3.85-$4.05 per share, an increase of 2-7 percent from $3.77 per share earned in 2012, based on continued strong growth in Agriculture and anticipated overall improvement in global industrial market demand.  For first-half 2013, the company expects operating earnings per share to be about 7-9 percent lower than the first half of 2012, primarily reflecting, as in the first quarter, lower Performance Chemicals earnings from peak levels in the prior year. 

Use of Non-GAAP MeasuresManagement believes that certain non-GAAP measurements are meaningful to investors because they provide insight with respect to ongoing operating results of the company.  Such measurements are not recognized in accordance with GAAP 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.

First quarter 2013 and first quarter 2012 included charges of $(35) and $(50), respectively, recorded in Cost of goods sold and 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 $(785) at March 31, 2013.  The company will continue to evaluate reported claim damage as additional information becomes available. It is reasonably possible that additional charges could result from this evaluation. While there is a high degree of uncertainty, total charges could range as high as $(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.

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.
