First Quarter Financial Highlights
GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.47. Adjusted earnings1 per share increased 7 percent to $1.12, compared with pro forma adjusted earnings per share in the year-ago period of $1.05. Adjusted earnings per share excludes significant items in the quarter totaling net charges of $0.54 per share, as well as an $0.11 per share charge for DuPont amortization of intangible assets.
Net sales increased 5 percent to $21.5 billion, with growth in most operating segments and geographic regions, from pro forma net sales of $20.5 billion in the year-ago period. The Materials Science division increased sales 17 percent, with double-digit gains in all segments and gains in all regions. The Specialty Products division increased sales 11 percent, with gains in most segments and all regions. These increases more than offset a decline in Agriculture sales of 25 percent driven by weather-related delays to planting seasons in the Northern Hemisphere and Brazil. Net sales included a 4 percent benefit from currency, primarily from the Euro.
Volume declined 2 percent on a pro forma basis from the year-ago period, due to a weather-related shift in Agriculture. The Materials Science division increased volume 8 percent, with gains in most segments and all regions. The Specialty Products division increased volume 3 percent, with gains in all segments and most regions.
Local price rose 3 percent on a pro forma basis, led by increases in all regions and most operating segments. Local price increased in each division, led by a 5 percent increase in the Materials Science division.
Operating EBITDA1 increased 6 percent on a pro forma basis from the year-ago period to $4.9 billion. The Materials Science division achieved 23 percent operating EBITDA growth, with double-digit gains in all segments. The Specialty Products division delivered 25 percent operating EBITDA growth, with double-digit gains in most segments. Earnings drivers included local price and volume gains in Materials Science and Specialty Products, cost synergies, a benefit from currency, lower pension/OPEB costs2 and higher equity earnings. These gains more than offset a decline in Agriculture due to a weather-related shift impacting seed and crop protection deliveries, higher feedstock costs in the other two divisions and planned maintenance and weather-related outages in Materials Science.
The Company achieved cost synergy savings of more than $300 million in the first quarter, ahead of its run-rate plan and now on pace to deliver a 75 percent run-rate against its $3.3 billion cost synergy commitment by the end of the third quarter of 2018.
DowDuPont returned nearly $2 billion to shareholders in the quarter through dividends ($0.9 billion) and share repurchases ($1 billion).
