"Our fourth quarter financial results reflect a disciplined focus on pricing actions and operational excellence in a sustained environment of unprecedented global supply chain challenges and rising inflation," said Ed Breen, DuPont Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Sustained strong demand in key end-markets such as electronics and water, along with our continued ability to offset raw material inflation with price, were critical to our fourth quarter results. The leading market positions we hold globally, as well as our focus on execution, has led to sales and earnings growth throughout the year and will be key to our success in 2022."

"In addition to delivering strong financial performance, we advanced a number of strategic priorities in 2021," Breen continued. "With our acquisition of Laird Performance Materials, definitive agreement to acquire Rogers Corporation(1) and intent to divest a substantial portion of the Mobility & Materials segment(2), we are advancing our position as a premier multi-industrial company and are focusing our portfolio around key growth pillars – electronics, water, protection, industrial technologies and next-generation automotive. We expect these steps will provide high-growth, high-value opportunities in sectors with long-term secular trends."

"For the year, we returned more than $2.7 billion of capital to shareholders through share repurchases and dividends and de-levered our balance sheet with a $5 billion reduction in long-term debt. These actions, combined with our intent to complete the $375 million remaining under our current share buyback authorization and announcements today of a new $1.0 billion share buyback program and a 10 percent per share increase in our regular quarterly dividend(3), further illustrate our commitment to a balanced capital allocation approach and value creation for our shareholders."

Fourth Quarter 2021 Results

Net sales totaled $4.3 billion, up 14 percent versus the year-ago period and up 13 percent on an organic(4) basis, including double-digit organic growth across all four regions and high single-digit to double-digit organic growth in all three reporting segments. Organic sales growth in the quarter includes a 7 percent increase in price and a 6 percent increase in volume. The local price increase primarily reflects actions taken to offset higher raw material costs. Volume growth reflects a continuation of strong global demand in key areas such as semiconductors and water, along with continued improvement in industrial end-markets which were adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in the year-ago period.

GAAP EPS from continuing operations totaled $0.47 on GAAP income from continuing operations of $266 million, versus GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $0.60 on GAAP income from continuing operations of $447 million in the year-ago period. The decline was driven by headwinds associated with significant items(4), primarily the absence of a favorable income tax benefit recognized in prior year and higher transaction-related expenses, which more than offset a lower share count and higher segment earnings.

Operating EBITDA(4) was $973 million, up 5 percent versus the year-ago period as pricing actions, volume gains and earnings associated with the July 1, 2021 acquisition of Laird Performance Materials more than offset higher raw material and logistics costs. Operating EBITDA margin was negatively impacted by higher raw material and logistics costs. Adjusted EPS(4) was $1.08, up 54% from the year-ago period due primarily to a lower share count and higher segment results.

Operating cash flow in the quarter of $621 million and capital expenditures of $184 million resulted in adjusted free cash flow conversion(4) of 100 percent.

Full Year 2021 Results

Full year net sales totaled $16.7 billion, up 16 percent versus prior year and up 14 percent on an organic(4) basis, including double-digit organic growth across all four regions and in all three reporting segments. Organic sales growth for the year includes a 10 percent increase in volume and a 4 percent increase in price. Volume growth reflects robust global customer demand throughout the year in secular growth areas such as electronics and water, along with recovery in end-markets adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in the year-ago period such as automotive, construction and industrial. The local price increase primarily reflects actions taken to offset higher raw material costs.

Full year GAAP EPS from continuing operations totaled $3.23 on GAAP income from continuing operations of $1.8 billion, versus GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $(3.31) on GAAP loss from continuing operations of $(2.4) billion in the prior year. The improvement was driven by lower net charges associated with significant items(4), primarily the absence of goodwill and other asset impairment charges recorded in the prior year, along with a lower share count, higher segment earnings and lower interest expense.

Full year operating EBITDA(4) was $4.2 billion, up 21 percent versus prior year. Volume gains, pricing actions and the absence of charges incurred in the prior year associated with temporarily idled facilities more than offset higher raw material and logistics costs and drove operating EBITDA margin expansion of 100 basis points. Adjusted EPS(4) was $4.30, up 95% from prior year due primarily to a lower share count, higher segment results and lower interest expense.

Operating cash flow for the year of $2.3 billion and capital expenditures of $0.9 billion resulted in free cash flow of $1.4 billion. Adjusted free cash flow conversion(4) for the year of 66 percent was negatively impacted by higher inventories put in place to navigate the strong demand environment amid tight supply chain conditions.

Quarterly Dividend

The Company today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a first quarter dividend of $0.33 per share on its outstanding common stock, representing a 10 percent increase to its regular quarterly dividend(3), payable March 15, 2022, to holders of record at the close of business on February 28, 2022.

Share Buyback Program

The Company today announced that its Board of Directors authorized a new $1.0 billion share buyback program which expires on March 31, 2023. This new authorization enables the Company to repurchase shares following the Company's expected completion of the remaining $375 million in repurchases under its existing share buyback program in first quarter 2022 ahead of the program's expiration on June 30, 2022. The tenor and size of the new program demonstrates the Company's continued commitment to return value to shareholders within the framework of its balanced capital allocation policy.

The actual timing and manner, which may include open-market purchases or privately negotiated transactions, as well as the number and value of shares repurchased under these programs will be determined by senior management at its discretion depending on a number of factors, including the market price of DuPont common stock, general market and economic conditions, applicable requirements and other business considerations.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Segment Highlights

Electronics & Industrial

Electronics & Industrial reported fourth quarter net sales of $1.5 billion, up 19 percent from the year-ago period. Volume gains delivered 9 percent organic sales growth. The July 1, 2021 acquisition of Laird Performance Materials increased net sales by 10 percent during the quarter.

Volume growth was led by Semiconductor Technologies with gains of more than 20 percent. Continued demand strength was driven by the on-going transition to more advanced technologies and growth in high-performance computing and 5G communications. Within Industrial Solutions, mid-teens volume growth primarily reflects ongoing strength for Kalrez® and Vespel® offerings within electronics and industrial markets. As expected, organic sales for Interconnect Solutions were down versus the year-ago period reflecting the anticipated impact of the shift in demand related to premium next-generation smartphones to the first half of 2021, along with softness in automotive end-markets due to supply chain constraints, primarily the semiconductor chip shortage.

Fourth quarter operating EBITDA for the segment was $423 million, an increase of 10 percent from operating EBITDA of $384 million in the year-ago period. Volume gains and earnings associated with Laird Performance Materials more than offset raw material and logistics headwinds, along with costs associated with the initial start-up of the Kapton® expansion.

For the year, Electronics & Industrial net sales of $5.6 billion were up 19 percent as reported and 12 percent on an organic basis, driven by higher volume. Organic sales growth reflects mid-teens gains in both Semiconductor Technologies and Industrial Solutions and mid-single-digit gains in Interconnect Solutions. Operating EBITDA for the segment of $1.8 billion was up 20 percent from the year-ago period driven by volume gains and earnings associated with Laird Performance Materials.

Water & Protection

Water & Protection reported fourth quarter net sales of $1.4 billion, up 16 percent from the year-ago period. Organic sales were up 17 percent on a 12 percent increase in volume and a 5 percent increase in price. Currency was a 1 percent headwind.

Sales gains versus the year-ago period were led by high-teens organic sales growth in Safety Solutions as continued recovery in industrial end-markets resulted in significant volume improvement for aramid fibers, coupled with pricing gains. Within Water Solutions, high-teens organic sales growth reflects strong global demand for water technologies, primarily in industrial and desalination markets. Within Shelter Solutions, mid-teens organic sales growth reflects pricing actions and volume growth related to both North American residential construction and the continued recovery in commercial construction led by demand for solid surfaces.

Operating EBITDA for the segment was $325 million, an increase of 7 percent compared to operating EBITDA of $303 million in the year-ago period as volume growth and pricing actions more than offset higher raw material and logistics costs.

For the year, Water & Protection net sales of $5.6 billion were up 11 percent as reported and 10 percent on an organic basis. Organic sales growth reflects 8 percent volume improvement and a 2 percent increase in price. Sales gains reflect low double-digit organic growth in both Safety Solutions and Shelter Solutions, along with mid-single-digit organic sales growth in Water Solutions. Operating EBITDA for the segment of $1.4 billion was up 5 percent from the year-ago period as volume gains and pricing actions more than offset higher raw material and logistics costs.

Mobility & Materials

Mobility & Materials reported fourth quarter net sales of $1.3 billion, up 12 percent from the year-ago period. Organic sales were up 13 percent on a 16 percent increase in price offset slightly by a 3 percent decline in volume. Currency was a 1 percent headwind.

The local price increase of 16 percent was broad-based across the segment and primarily reflects actions taken to offset raw material costs. Volume declines reflect softness in global auto production due to supply chain constraints, primarily the semiconductor chip shortage.

Operating EBITDA for the segment was $230 million, a decline of 3 percent compared to operating EBITDA of $236 million in the year-ago period as net pricing gains were more than offset by lower equity earnings due to higher natural gas costs.

For the year, Mobility & Materials net sales of $5.0 billion were up 26 percent as reported and 24 percent on an organic basis. Organic sales growth reflects 12 percent volume improvement and a 12 percent increase in price. Volume improvement reflects broad-based demand strength across the segment driven primarily by the ongoing recovery in the global automotive market. The local price increase reflects actions taken to offset higher raw material costs and metals pricing. Operating EBITDA for the segment of $1.1 billion was up 84 percent from the year-ago period on higher volumes, net pricing gains and the absence of charges incurred in the prior year associated with temporarily idled facilities.

Outlook

"For 2022 we expect net sales between $17.4 and $17.8 billion and operating EBITDA between $4.3 and $4.5 billion, an increase of 6 percent at the mid-point versus 2021, with top-line volume growth and pricing gains more than offsetting year-over-year raw material and logistics costs increases," said Lori Koch, Chief Financial Officer of DuPont. "Our outlook for full year adjusted EPS is in the range of $4.60 to $4.90 per share, an increase of 10 percent at the mid-point versus 2021."

"For the first quarter of 2022, we expect net sales between $4.2 and $4.3 billion, operating EBITDA between $940 and $980 million, and adjusted EPS in the range of $0.94 to $1.00 per share," Koch continued. "Consumer demand remains strong however raw material and logistics cost inflation is expected to continue to impact margins. We expect operating EBITDA margin in first quarter 2022 to be about flat with fourth quarter 2021 with continued improvement throughout 2022 to more normalized levels in the back half of the year."

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 12 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.

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 and the after-tax impact of non-operating pension / other post employment benefits ("OPEB") benefits / charges. Management estimates amortization expense in 2022 associated with intangibles to be approximately $770 million on a pre-tax basis, or approximately $1.17 per share.

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. Operating EBITDA margin is calculated as operating EBITDA divided by net sales. Operating EBITDA leverage is calculated as the year-over-year percentage change in operating EBITDA divided by the year-over-year percentage change in net sales.

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.
