Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights
GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations totaled $0.21. Adjusted earnings1 per share increased 6 percent to $0.88, compared with the year-ago period of $0.83. Adjusted earnings per share excludes significant items in the quarter totaling net charges of $0.56 per share and an $0.11 per share charge for DuPont amortization of intangible assets.
Net sales were even with the year-ago period at $20.1 billion, as price and volume gains were offset by currency.
Volume grew 1 percent from the year-ago period. Gains were achieved in Asia Pacific, up 8 percent and Latin America, up 9 percent, which more than offset volume declines in U.S. & Canada, down 3 percent and EMEA, down 1 percent.
Local price rose 1 percent, with gains in most regions. Currency decreased sales 2 percent.
GAAP Net Income from Continuing Operations totaled $513 million. Operating EBITDA1 was $3.9 billion, flat with the year-ago period, as cost synergies and local price gains were offset by margin compression in the Materials Science Division, lower equity earnings and a headwind from currency.
DowDuPont achieved cost synergy savings of more than $500 million in the quarter, and since merger close has now delivered more than $1.8 billion of cumulative savings.
Cash flow from operations in the quarter was $5.1 billion compared to $1.8 billion in the year-ago period. After adjusting for the accounting and presentation change for accounts receivable securitization, cash flow from operations rose $0.9 billion year-over-year.
The Company returned $2.3 billion to shareholders in the quarter through dividends ($0.9 billion) and share repurchases ($1.4 billion). DowDuPont intends to complete its remaining open share repurchases in the first quarter of 2019. Since merger close, the Company has returned nearly $10 billion to shareholders.
CEO Quote
“In our first full year as a merged company, we delivered consistently strong results. Pro forma sales rose 8 percent with gains in every geography. We delivered a 13 percent increase in operating EBITDA. And we raised our cost synergy expectation by 20 percent to $3.6 billion, while continuing to return significant capital to shareholders,” said Ed Breen, chief executive officer of DowDuPont.

“We remain on track for the separation of the new Dow on April 1, followed by Corteva from the new DuPont on June 1. We are excited about launching these three global companies, each set to be an industry leader with the right capital structure and now better positioned to serve customers, compete in their end markets and focus on their innovation priorities. We’ve also put in place strong leadership teams who are singularly focused on capitalizing on their competitive advantages and delivering on their substantial growth and cost synergy opportunities to create value both now and over the long-term.”
