“In our first full year as a merged company, we delivered consistently strong results. Pro forma sales rose 8% with gains in every geography. We delivered a 13% increase in operating EBITDA. And we raised our cost synergy expectation by 20 % to $3.6 billion, while continuing to return significant capital to shareholders,” says Ed Breen, CEO 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.”
