DuPont Reports 4Q and Full-Year 2013 Operating EPS of $.59 and $3.88; 4Q Segment Operating Earnings Grow 52 Percent on Higher Volume, Improved Operating Margins

Company Expects 2014 Operating Earnings of $4.20-$4.45 Per Share; Separately Announces Multi-Year $5 Billion Share Repurchase Program

WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPont (NYSE: DD) today announced fourth quarter 2013 operating earnings of $.59 per share compared to $.20 per share in the prior year.  GAAP1 earnings from continuing operations were $183 million or $.19 per share, versus $4 million or zero per share last year.  Fourth quarter results reflect strong volume growth, improved operating margins and a lower base tax rate compared to the prior year. 

The company said that it expects full-year 2014 operating earnings of $4.20 to $4.45 per share, up 8 to 15 percent versus 2013. DuPont separately announced that its Board of Directors authorized a new $5 billion share repurchase program, with $2 billion expected to occur in 2014.

"Our strong fourth quarter results reflect successful execution across the company against the backdrop of a gradually improving global economy," said DuPont Chair and CEO Ellen Kullman.  "For the year, we delivered double-digit operating earnings growth and higher margins, aside from the substantial decline in Performance Chemicals. The improvement was driven by higher volumes, new innovative products and productivity gains."

"Our 2013 results and strategic actions demonstrate we are advancing our plan to build a higher growth, higher value DuPont and reinforce our decision to separate Performance Chemicals into a strong, independent company," Kullman said.  "Our $5 billion share repurchase program reflects ongoing confidence in our plan to continue increasing the value of DuPont for shareholders in 2014 and beyond."  

Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Company sales increased 6 percent to $7.7 billion, with 9 percent volume growth reflecting increased demand across all segments and regions.
  • Segment operating earnings of $939 million increased 52 percent versus $616 million last year, with operating margin improvement across most segments.
  • Agriculture operating earnings were $88 million compared to a seasonal operating loss of $77 million last year, driven by strong insecticide sales in Latin America and earlier seed shipments. 
  • Electronics & Communications, Safety & Protection and Nutrition & Health recorded operating earnings increases of 116 percent, 57 percent, and 40 percent, respectively.

Full Year Highlights

  • 2013 operating earnings were $3.88 per share, up 3 percent from $3.77 per share in the prior year.  Sales increased 3 percent to $35.7 billion with 5 percent higher volume.  GAAP earnings from continuing operations were $3.04 per share versus $2.59 per share last year.
  • Segment operating earnings were $5.9 billion, down from $6.3 billion last year primarily due to a $0.8 billion decline ($.66 per share) in Performance Chemicals.  Excluding Performance Chemicals in both years, segment operating earnings increased $490 million, or 11 percent.
  • Agriculture operating earnings grew 16 percent on 13 percent higher sales, partially offset by higher seed input costs and negative currency impact.  Sales growth was principally driven by higher global seed prices and volumes, increased global insecticide and fungicide volumes, and the benefit of increased ownership in Pannar Seed (Pty) Ltd.
  • Free cash flow was $1.3 billion versus $3.1 billion in the prior year, primarily due to the decline in Performance Chemicals earnings, changes in Agriculture working capital, and the absence of Performance Coatings earnings following the 2013 divestiture.
  • The unfunded pension and OPEB liability decreased $4.9 billion to $8.4 billion at December 31, 2013.

Global Consolidated Net Sales – 4th Quarter

Fourth quarter 2013 net sales of $7.7 billion increased 6 percent versus last year, reflecting 9 percent higher volume, partly offset by 2 percent lower local selling prices and a 1 percent negative currency impact.  The table below shows fourth quarter regional sales and variances versus fourth quarter 2012.

The following is a summary of business results for each of the company's reportable segments comparing fourth quarter with the prior year, unless otherwise noted. References to selling price are on a U.S. dollar basis, including the impact of currency.

Agriculture – Operating earnings were $88 million compared to a seasonal operating loss of $77 million in last year's fourth quarter.  The improvement was driven by strong insecticide sales in Latin America, earlier seed shipments for the Brazil safrinha corn season enabled by recent investments, and earlier direct seed shipments to North American farmers, partially offset by negative currency impact.  As a result of the earlier timing of seed shipments, about $100 million of operating earnings were realized in the fourth quarter versus the first quarter 2014.   

Full year operating earnings of $2.5 billion grew 16 percent on 13 percent higher sales, partially offset by higher seed input costs and negative currency impact.  Sales growth was principally driven by higher global seed prices and volumes, increased global insecticide and fungicide volumes, and the benefit of increased ownership in Pannar.

Electronics & Communications – Operating earnings of $93 million increased $50 million driven by higher sales volume and improved plant utilization.  Higher volume, mainly in photovoltaic markets reflecting demand improvement and share gains, was offset in part by reduced selling prices, largely from pass-through of lower metals prices.

Industrial Biosciences – Operating earnings of $40 million were essentially flat on increased demand for Sorona® polymer for carpeting and apparel and enzymes for ethanol production, offset by higher costs.

Nutrition & Health Operating earnings of $81 million increased $23 million driven by pricing gains and increased demand in protein solutions, probiotics and cultures.  Operating margin improved more than two points as pricing gains, mix enrichment and productivity actions more than offset growth investments.

Performance Chemicals – Operating earnings of $229 million were down 3 percent as price declines for titanium dioxide and refrigerants, along with higher raw material costs, more than offset volume increases and improved plant utilization in both businesses. Titanium dioxide volume was up 18 percent from fourth quarter 2012.

Performance Materials – Operating earnings of $295 million increased $22 million reflecting higher volume from increased demand in packaging, automotive, and industrial markets, partially offset by lower selling prices and higher raw material costs.

Safety & Protection – Operating earnings of $209 million increased $76 million due primarily to continued productivity improvements, improved plant utilization, and higher volume, primarily in industrial markets.

Outlook 

The company expects full-year 2014 operating earnings of $4.20 to $4.45 per share, up 8 to 15 percent versus 2013, with full-year 2014 sales increasing 4 percent to about $37 billion, including about a 2 percent decline from portfolio changes.  The outlook reflects an expectation for continuing improvement in global industrial production, lower agricultural input costs, and a slightly stronger average exchange value for the U.S. dollar.  This outlook also recognizes that Agriculture earnings of approximately $.09 per share that historically would have been earned in the first quarter 2014 were realized in the fourth quarter 2013 due to earlier timing of seed shipments.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Management 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.

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.
