WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 2, 2022 -
DuPont (NYSE: DD) today announced financial results
for the second quarter of 2022.
“We delivered second quarter financial results ahead of expectations by maintaining a disciplined focus on pricing actions and operational excellence in the face of continued global supply chain and logistics challenges and ongoing inflationary pressure,” said Ed Breen, DuPont Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Underlying demand during the quarter in our key end-markets remained strong. Year-over-year and sequential sales and earnings growth in a volatile macro environment demonstrated the strength of our portfolio, our deep customer relationships and the leading market positions we hold globally.”
“We continue to advance our previously announced portfolio actions of acquiring Rogers Corporation and divesting a substantial portion of the former Mobility & Materials segment,” Breen continued. “Regarding Rogers, we expect to close the acquisition during the third quarter of 2022, with China being the last remaining jurisdiction requiring regulatory approval. For the M&M transactions, we continue to expect the completion of the sale of portions of this business to Celanese to close around year-end.”
“As DuPont drives innovation investment to support long-term growth, we continue to introduce new products across our key growth pillars,” Breen said. “We are excited to have won four 2022 Edison Awards highlighting innovative technologies, while also progressing well with our broader new product pipeline to support growth over the coming years.”
Second Quarter 2022 Results
Dollars in millions, unless noted
Net sales increased 7% on organic sales
growth of 9%; portfolio benefit of 1% was more than offset by a 3% currency headwind.
growth of 9% consisted of an 8% increase in price and 1% increase in volume.
Price increase reflects actions taken to offset continued broad-based cost inflation.
(1) During the first quarter of 2022, a substantial portion of the Company’s historic Mobility & Materials segment met the criteria to be classified as discontinued operations for current and historical periods. See page 5 for further information, including the basis of presentation included in this release.
(2) Adjusted EPS, operating EBITDA, organic sales and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures. See page 6 for further discussion, including a definition of significant items. Reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, including details of significant items begins on page 11 of this communication.
Volume increase reflects continued strong demand in semiconductor, general industrial, water and construction end-markets, muted primarily by lower volumes from protective garments within Safety Solutions.
9% organic sales
growth in Water & Protection; 8% organic sales
growth in Electronics & Industrial; 15% organic sales
growth in retained businesses reported in Corporate & Other, which predominantly consists of our auto adhesives portfolio.
growth in all regions globally, including 13% in U.S & Canada, 8% in EMEA and 6% in Asia Pacific.
GAAP Income/GAAP EPS from continuing operations
GAAP income/GAAP EPS from continuing operations declined as higher segment earnings and a lower share count were more than offset by lower gains on business divestitures and a higher tax rate compared to the year-ago period.
increased as pricing actions, earnings associated with Laird Performance Materials and volume gains more than offset higher inflationary costs from raw materials, logistics and energy.
increased due to higher segment earnings and a lower share count partially offset by a higher tax rate compared to the year-ago period.
Operating cash flow
Operating cash flow in the quarter of $86 million and capital expenditures of $135 million resulted in free cash flow
of $(49) million.
Second Quarter 2022 Segment Highlights
Operating EBITDA margin %
Net sales increased 16% on organic sales
growth of 8%; a portfolio benefit of 11%, reflecting the acquisition of Laird Performance Materials in the prior year, was slightly offset by a 3% currency headwind.
growth of 8% driven by a 6% increase in volume and a 2% increase in price.
sales up mid-teens on an organic
basis as strong demand continued, led by the on-going transition to more advanced node technologies and strong fab utilization, along with growth in 5G communications and data centers.
sales up high single-digits on an organic
basis, reflecting ongoing demand strength for OLED materials, Kalrez® and Vespel® products, and for applications in healthcare markets such as biopharma tubing.
sales down low single-digits on an organic
basis due to volume declines. Volume gains in industrial end-markets were more than offset by the anticipated return to more normal seasonal order patterns in smartphones compared to last year, along with softness in China smartphones, as well as personal computing and in automotive end-markets.
Increase in operating EBITDA driven by earnings associated with Laird Performance Materials, volume gains and higher pricing which was partially offset by higher raw material and logistics costs.
Net sales increased 6% as organic sales
growth of 9% was partially offset by a 3% currency headwind.
growth of 9% reflects a 12% increase in price and a 3% decline in volume. The increase in price reflects broad-based actions taken across the segment to offset continued cost inflation.
sales up high-teens on an organic
basis driven by pricing gains and continued demand strength in North America residential construction, as well as ongoing growth in commercial construction.
sales up mid-single-digits on an organic
basis as pricing actions were partially offset by lower volumes, primarily Tyvek® garments.
basis on pricing gains, as well as steady demand for water technologies.
Operating EBITDA was down slightly as pricing actions taken to offset higher raw material, logistics and energy costs were more than offset by volume declines.
Full Year 2022E
$3,170 - $3,370
$13,000 - $13,400
$3,250 - $3,350
$3.27 - $3.43
“Our strong first half 2022 results reflect positively on the secular end-markets in which we operate and highlight our team’s focus on execution,” said Lori Koch, Chief Financial Officer of DuPont. “As we look towards the second half, demand and overall order trends in our key end-markets remain solid, however, future uncertainties continue to exist including continued inflationary pressure, challenging supply chains, and U.S. dollar strength against global currencies.”
“We are narrowing our full year 2022 adjusted EPS guidance from $3.20-$3.50 to $3.27-$3.43 while maintaining the mid-point of our previous range.” Koch continued. “Our updated full year 2022 guidance ranges for net sales and operating EBITDA reflect incremental foreign currency headwinds and the removal of contribution from the Biomaterials business, which was divested on May 31, 2022.”
“We expect third quarter 2022 net sales and operating EBITDA to be slightly weaker than second quarter 2022 as sequential volume increases are expected to be offset by foreign currency headwinds and the absence of the Biomaterials net sales contribution,” Koch said. "We are also expecting a negative impact during the third quarter on operating EBITDA of approximately $15 million from unplanned downtime at our Spruance site in Virginia within the W&P segment resulting from an unforeseen utility disruption with a third-party supplier. On a year-over-year basis, we expect third quarter net sales to be up 2 percent at the mid-point of the range, or up high single-digits on an organic basis."

The slide presentation that accompanies the conference call will be posted on the DuPont’s Investor Relations Events and Presentations page.

Cautionary Statement about Forward-looking Statements
This communication contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business and financial performance and financial condition, and often contain words such as "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "see," "will," "would," "target," and similar expressions and variations or negatives of these words.

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 11 and in the Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Measures 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.
The historic Mobility & Material segment costs that are classified as discontinued operations include only direct operating expenses incurred by the M&M Businesses which the Company will cease to incur upon the close of the M&M Divestitures. Indirect costs, such as those related to corporate and shared service functions previously allocated to the M&M Businesses, do not meet the criteria for discontinued operations and remain reported within continuing operations. A portion of these indirect costs include costs related to activities the Company will continue to undertake post-closing of the M&M Divestiture, and for which it will be reimbursed (“Future Reimbursable Indirect Costs”). Future Reimbursable Indirect Costs are reported within continuing operations but are excluded from operating EBITDA as defined below. The remaining portion of these indirect costs is not subject to future reimbursement (“Stranded Costs”). Stranded Costs are reported within continuing operations in Corporate & Other and are included within Operating EBITDA.
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 of intangibles, the after-tax impact of non-operating pension / other post employment benefits (“OPEB”) credits / costs and Future Reimbursable Indirect Costs. Management estimates amortization expense in 2022 associated with intangibles to be approximately $600 million on a pre-tax basis, or approximately $0.93 per share.
The Company's measure of profit/loss for segment reporting purposes is Operating EBITDA as this is the manner in which the Company's chief operating decision maker ("CODM") assesses performance and allocates resources. The Company defines Operating EBITDA as earnings (i.e., “Income from continuing operations before income taxes") before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-operating pension / OPEB benefits / charges, and foreign exchange gains / losses, excluding Future Reimbursable Indirect Costs, and adjusted for significant items. Reconciliations of these measures are provided on the following pages.
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.
Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by/used for operating activities less capital expenditures. As a result, free cash flow represents cash that is available to the Company, after investing in its asset base, to fund obligations using the Company's primary source of liquidity, cash provided by operating activities. Management believes free cash flow, even though it may be defined differently from other companies, is useful to investors, analysts and others to evaluate the Company's cash flow and financial performance, and it is an integral measure used in the Company's financial planning process. Free cash flow conversion is defined as free cash flow divided by net income adjusted to exclude the after-tax impact of non-cash impairment charges, gains or losses on divestitures, and amortization expense of intangibles.
