    To Avoid Pervasive Degradation of the Combinative DoDu, Inc. and To Avoid Bungling of the Three Future Spin-offs.

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    DOW Shareholders,

    It is extremely important for Dow Chemical to position its people in the leadership roles. The appointment of Howard Ungerleider as CFO of the combined entity is a favourable start.

    DOW shareholders need only recall the last spin-off engineered by the bumbling bosses of DuPont: the stillborn Shamours, stripped of $4 billion of cash and crushed with $4 billion of junk debt. CC shares immediately dove off the cliff, falling from 22.25 on the first day of trading, June 19, 2015 to 3.06 on Jan. 27, 2016. 85% of the value incinerated. After an emergency infusion of $440 million into Shamours by DuPont's nervous Management, CC has since recovered to 9.00 and change. And the quarterly CC dividend was machete-slashed from 55 cents to 3 pennies.

    Remember SHAMours when the DuPlicitous Management of DuPont promises you "a world-leading, strong independent company" as they are doing right now with the future DoDu, Inc. agricultural spin-off. They
    promised Shamours would be just that! It wasn't.

  • Reputation Operatives Are Harassing and Smearing Investors Who Dare to Discuss this Litigation Crushing Shamours (and DuPont)

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Readers, we noticed the phenomenon in the past few weeks at various investor and news sites over the internet: Unethical shills protecting and promoting Shamours and DuPont Management are bombarding investors with nasty personal attacks, and trying frantically to dismiss the 3,535 ongoing Toxic Teflon Chemical tort lawsuits as minimal. Nothing to worry about, they claim dishonestly.

    Despite the secrecy and evasiveness of Shamours and DuPont Management and their active PR operatives, respected security analysts have already projected the likely cost of this Toxic Teflon Chemical Litigation is more than $1 billion.

    The very first case was selected by agreement of both parties as the case most favourable to the defendant, repeat most favourable to the defendant, DuPont. DuPont lost the case, with an
    adverse jury verdict to the C8 victim, Mrs. Bartlett, and an award of $1.5 million.

    Our conservative projection for the settlements, damages and judgements for the next 3,534 tort cases: $3 billion to $5 billion. You are free, of course, to make you own educated projections, or even believe like DuPont and Shamours Management apparently does, that DuPont will win every case and be awarded all attorneys' fees and court costs, and hence absolutely $ZERO reserves need to be set aside for this colossal contingent Toxic Teflon Chemical Litigation liability!

    Recall also the disastrous, plant-destroying DuPont fungicide BENLATE cost DD shareholders more than $2 billion, and the tree-killing DuPont Imprelis has to date cost more than $1 billion. And both of these critically deficient DuPont products primarily affected property, not human health and human lives as DuPont's deadly and sickening Teflon Toxin does!

  • n Favour of Dow Chemical Vice Chair & CFO, Howard Ungerleider

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Investors, all that behind the scenes fighting over personal fiefdoms in the face of the pending unholy matrimony of Dow and DuPont is producing some interesting, if not entertaining results.

    Named today as the new CFO of the conglomerated DoDu, Inc is Dow CFO, Howard Ungerleider, age 47. Out on the curb, so it seems is ex-DuPont Chieftess Ellen Kullman's old numbers boy, CFO Nicholas FeignandFakeUs, also affectionately called in shop, Nicholas FairlyRidikulis, who will be 60 his next birthday.

    Both have M.B.A.s. Ungerlieder took his degree from the University of California in Los Angeles. And FeignandFakeUs took his M.B.A from the internationally renown Grand Valley State College, somewhere in rural Michigan.

    We wish both of these quantitative gentlemen well in their new pursuits.

  • Your DuPont Employees Are Damaging Your Reputation and DuPont's Reputation!

    Edward D. Breen, Chairman & CEO, E. I .du Pont de Nemours and Company
    Chestnut Run Plaza, 974 Centre Rd., Wilmington, DE 19898

    Dear Mr. Breen,

    The internet has become an increasingly major source of information on companies for investors and the public. People avidly read news and opinions on corporations from multitudinous sites.

    You may not be aware that certain of your DuPont employees in various internet forums are engaging in practices that are highly detrimental to the reputation and image of DuPont and its leaders. DuPont employees, particularly in the AG arena, having proudly disclosed their employment with DuPont and in their zeal to promote DuPont have engaged in brazen misconduct and unsavory tactics, which include...

    * Mocking and smearing your own DuPont customers and plant neighbours, including victims of DuPont's secret, decades-long contamination of drinking water supplies with cancer-causing Teflon chemicals.

    * Smearing DuPont rivals, particularly Monsanto, with defamatory and systematic attacks in disgusting and sleazy fashion. That does not sit well with investors and with prospective seed and ag chemical customers.

    * Systematically waging viciously vindictive personal attacks on outside commentators whose independent views they violently disagree with. Your employees' arrogant intolerance of others' views and their relentless attempts to disrupt boards and gut open and free discussion with stolen names, confusing identity theft and outright lies against other posters is nothing short of despicable.

    Unfortunately, your own DuPont employees by misbehaving in this retaliatory fashion, often with obscene and childishly derogatory posts, are degrading, not enhancing the reputation of DuPont and its top executives. Your employees need lessons in decency and civility.

    Sincerely yours,

    funfundvierzig, one individual investor at large.

    Amusingly, this Bayer offer throws the Klieg lights on the abject inferiority of DuPont AG, which has to shell out hundreds of $millions in license fees to Monsanto every year in order to plunk Monsanto's superior GM traits into DuPont Pioneer's otherwise drearily ordinary seed line-up.

    Why does Andrew Liveris and the Dow Chemical crowd want to end up with a second-rate seed company, with a shallow pool of mediocre scientific and managerial talent?

  • Offer Exceeds the Value of the Degraded DuPont Company!

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Investors, after weeks of whispered rumours, Bayer of Germany has come forth this morning, May 23, 2016 with a cash offer to Monsanto of $122 a MON share. This gives the much smaller Monsanto a value of $62 billion exceeding DuPont's current value of $57million.

    It's telling that the much smaller Monsanto has out-innovated, out-competed and out-run the inferior-managed DuPont Company. And the entirety of the lumbering, much larger DuPont Company by many financial metrics, is worth less by $5 billion. That includes all of the DuPont operations, the inferior DuPont AG, the butchered DuPont remnants of Danisco, materials, specialty chemicals, building supplies, electronics, and all the commodity solar stuff.

    Given the sad shape of the long malmanaged DuPont Company of today, it's hard to imagine DuPont was once the global icon of chemistry, largest, most prestigious enterprise for much of the 20th century. Now BASF, Bayer, and twice-as-large Dow Chemical, along with a score of other chemical concerns tower over the diminished DuPont.

    For decades, DuPont's ethically crippled executives and their PR con artists insisted that their extraordinarily toxic, cancer-causing man-made Teflon chemical, C8 or PFOA, was perfectly safe, "harmless to human health," and as innocent as Snow White. Simultaneously for decades, independent medical science and epidemiology was screaming the opposite.

    Now the hapless shareholders of DuPont and Shamours, not to mention shareholders of Dow Chemical after marriage with the depraved DuPont, are about about to pay a terrible price for this toxic cover-up and sham safety.

    …funfun..

  • Readers, apparently the shills & dirty-playing PR damage controllers guarding DuPont Management over the internet immediately got ticked off over this letter, and had it deleted, CENSORED from the Dow Chemical Message Board. So much for free thought and differing investor perspectives around the closeted clowns hunkered down in the insular dwarf state of Delaware!

    What the hell are they desperate to hide?

    Identity theft and fake funfun post by the unethical trash in the DuPont Management camp on PR damage control duty! Gotta laugh.

    What amazing arrogance on the part of Shamours' head honcho! Trying to shake $8 million out of the stressed taxpayers of Delaware for a debt-choked DuPont spin-off, which stands a strong likelihood of insolvency and bankruptcy, and the lost of thousands of jobs, under the crushing weight of Toxic Teflon Chemical Litigation.

    Let DuPont's dirty-playing Management who drained $4 billion in cash out of SHAMours pony up the $8 million!

    Finally, folks, notice how sleazy shills guarding Shamours and DuPont Management on the internet have launched a multitude of distracting personal attacks. What a bunch of resentfully uneducated woodchucks who can't see beyond the lids of their lunch pails!

    ...funfun..

    Folks, this hostile, resentfully under-educated heckler apparently doesn't realise Dow is marrying DuPont with all assets and liabilities therefrom! Tell him how Kerr McGee tried the same stunt with its huge environmental liabilities, dumping them on TRONOX, but failed. It's called fraudulent conveyance and will be stopped legally.

    DuPont CEO Ed Breen and his PR people should be keenly embarrassed that they have these malicious operatives paid by DuPont and proudly bragging they work for DuPont, and then proceed to launch constantly and systematically vile attacks and defamatory lies against superior-managed competitors such as Monsanto and Dow, not to mention viciously targeting outside investors with independent viewpoints.

    The resentfully under-educated and hostile Not-That-Bright, avowed DuPont AG employee, makes Breen and DuPont look bad, very ugly. How dumbed-down has the Company gotten with bottom-of-the-barrel employees like this, continually speaking in public on DuPont matters? The pocked face of DuPont!

    Now you devolve into resentful irrelevancy.

    What in the hell does the prolonged Bhopal clamour in India have to do with the 3,535 Teflon Toxin lawsuits in the United States, in the U. S. District Court, Southern Ohio, or for that matter the ongoing C8 investigation in the Netherlands? DuPont is directly responsible for its secret C8 contamination and violations of environmental laws. DuPont did not acquire these liabilities. or inherit them.

    ...funfun..

  • funfundvierzig funfundvierzig May 20, 2016 10:26 AM Flag

    You might want to educate yourself on this critical issue instead of popping off with comical and resentful ignorance.

    The named defendant in all of these Toxic Teflon Chemical tort lawsuits in federal court is DuPont, not Shamours, some 3,500 cases. While DuPont has the right of indemnification from Shamours, the ultimate legal bill, multiples of $billions would sink Shamours quickly into insolvency and bankruptcy. Furthermore, a judge is not likely to allow this fraudulent conveyance of liability by DuPont to Shamours.

    Like it or not this massively heavy baggage belongs to DuPont and DOW shareholders via the "Merger of Unequals" will have it delivered to their doorsteps.

    ...funfun..

  • Decades of DuPont Management Depravity Will Soon Degrade Dow Chemical Upon Marriage.

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    DOW Shareholders, the multi-$billion scandal and cover-up from cancer-causing Teflon chemicals is exploding across the planet, now in the Netherlands.

    "Some 800 families living in Merwedepolder, Dordrecht are living atop an old landfill where DuPont dumped
    their waste, possibly including toxic C8 from its Teflon factory, AD reports.

    "The municipality of Dordrecht is launching a large study this week to find out whether the toxic substance in present in the neighborhood’s soil and groundwater. Three other old Dordrecht landfills will also be tested. This study forms part of a national investigation into perfluorinated compounds in Dutch groundwater.

    "The nationwide investigation will be performed by researchers from Witteveen+Bos, TTE Consultancy and Arcadis. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment and national health institute RIVM are also participating. Dordrecht was chosen as the starting point due to the turmoil surrounding the DuPont plant and toxic C8, according to the newspaper.

    “ 'We know that industrial waste was dumped in the Dordrecht landfills, but we do not know where DuPont’s C8 is and how much there is. We don’t know exactly what’s going on', Jonne Bochove said to AD on behalf of the municipality. 'Nothing was recorded in those years and supervision was also less. We’re talking about the 60’s to 80’s'.”

    NL Times, by Janene Pieters, 05-18-16.

    The Dutch are apparently finding belatedly, and sadly, never trust DuPont's dirty-playing, ethically crippled Management! Another huge environmental mess about to be dumped on Dow Chemical by marriage! Dow will be going Dutch.

    ...funfun..
