For the fourth quarter, FMC reported revenue of $866 million, a 4 percent decrease over the same period in 2015.  The company reported earnings of $16 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2016, as compared to a loss of $1.53 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Excluding various restructuring charges, adjusted earnings were $0.88 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2016, an increase of 14 percent compared to the prior year quarter.    

Pierre Brondeau, FMC president, CEO and chairman said:  "FMC delivered another solid quarter, to cap a year of strong quarterly performances. In Ag Solutions, we focused on maintaining price and terms rather than volume, and we rationalized low-margin products to improve the foundations of that business. Despite headwinds from Omega 3, Health and Nutrition delivered another year of strong margins and cash flow. Lithium tripled earnings by executing on its growth strategy and taking advantage of favorable market conditions. The actions we have taken throughout 2016 position FMC to deliver significant earnings growth in 2017."

FMC Agricultural Solutions

FMC Agricultural Solutions reported fourth quarter revenue of $618 million and segment earnings of $127 million.  Fourth quarter segment revenue declined 6 percent year-over-year, principally due to lower sales in Latin America and Europe.  Segment earnings, however, increased 25 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2015, driven by our ability to maintain pricing, principally in Latin America, despite the strengthening of the U.S. dollar.

Segment revenue for 2016 was $2.27 billion, a 1 percent increase compared to the prior year, while full-year segment earnings were $400 million, a 10 percent increase compared to the prior year.  Segment earnings margin improved 140 basis points to 17.6 percent.

For 2017, full-year segment revenue is expected to be approximately $2.2 billion to $2.4 billion and full-year segment earnings are expected to be in the range of $410 million to $450 million, an increase of 8 percent at the mid-point compared to the prior year.  First quarter segment earnings are expected to be in the range of $60 million to $70 million, a decrease of approximately 20 percent at the mid-point compared to the prior year quarter.   Earnings growth in 2017 is expected to be driven by lower operating costs and higher volumes, offset partially by unfavorable foreign exchange.

FMC Health and Nutrition

FMC Health and Nutrition reported fourth quarter segment revenue of $177 million and segment earnings of $54 million.  Revenue increased 3 percent and segment earnings increased 17 percent compared to the fourth quarter 2015. The earnings increase was largely due to lower manufacturing costs, as expected.  Segment revenue for 2016 was $744 million, 5 percent lower than 2015, while full-year segment earnings were $191 million, 2 percent lower than 2015.

Segment revenue for the full year of 2017 is anticipated to be approximately $750 million to $790 million, while full-year segment earnings are expected to be between $190 million and $200 million, an increase of 2 percent at the mid-point compared to the prior year.  First quarter segment earnings are expected to be in the range of $45 million to $50 million, roughly flat at the mid-point compared to the prior year quarter. Earnings growth in 2017 is expected to be driven by higher sales and improved mix.

FMC Lithium

FMC Lithium reported fourth quarter segment revenue of $71 million, an increase of 1 percent from the prior-year quarter.  Segment earnings increased to $21 million in the quarter versus $11 million in the prior-year quarter.  Higher prices contributed the bulk of the increase in segment earnings.  Segment revenue for 2016 was $264 million, 11 percent higher than 2015, while full-year segment earnings were $70 million, which was more than triple the segment earnings from 2015.

Segment revenue for the full year of 2017 is anticipated to be approximately $315 million to $355 million, while full-year segment earnings are expected to be between $90 million and $110 million, an increase of over 40 percent at the mid-point compared to the prior year.  First quarter segment earnings are expected to be in the range of $18 million to $22 million, an increase of approximately 35 percent at the mid-point compared to the prior year quarter. Earnings growth in 2017 is expected to be driven primarily by volume from our hydroxide expansion and higher prices for our hydroxide products.

2017 Outlook

FMC expects adjusted earnings per share to be in the range of $3.20 to $3.60 for the full year 2017, an increase of 20 percent (at the mid-point) versus 2016 adjusted earnings per share of $2.82.1

____________________

(1)

The Company believes that the Non-GAAP financial measure "Adjusted After-Tax Earnings from Continuing Operations, Attributable to FMC Stockholders", and its presentation on a per share basis, provides useful information about the Company's operating results to investors and securities analysts. Adjusted earnings excludes the effects of Corporate special charges, tax-related adjustments and the results of our discontinued operations.  The Company also believes that excluding the effects of these items from operating results allows management and investors to compare more easily the financial performance of its underlying businesses from period to period.



(2)

The average number of shares outstanding used in the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015 diluted adjusted after-tax earnings from continuing operations per share computation (Non-GAAP) includes 0.5 million and 0.7 million diluted shares, respectively. The number of shares differs from the average number of shares outstanding used in diluted earnings per share computations (GAAP) as we had a net loss from continuing operations attributable to FMC stockholders.



(a) 

Three Months Ended December 31, 2016:




Restructuring and other charges (income) includes charges of $27.6 million representing final adjustments to severance, asset write-offs, and other costs associated with the integration of Cheminova within Agricultural Solutions. In the fourth quarter, we also entered into an agreement to obtain certain technology and intellectual property rights related to compounds still under development for our Agricultural Solutions businesses. The $13.2 million paid to acquire these rights was expensed as in-process research and development costs. Restructuring and other charges (income) also includes $19.4 million of charges for continuing environmental sites treated as a Corporate charge. Amounts also include miscellaneous restructuring charges totaling $7.1 million and other charges of $0.9 million.




Three Months Ended December 31, 2015:




Restructuring and other charges (income) includes a charge of $70.5 million as a result of the mothballing of our Seal Sands Omega-3 production facility within Health and Nutrition, as well as $61.8 million of charges representing severance and asset write-offs associated with the integration of Cheminova within Agricultural Solutions.  Amount also includes $10.7 million as a result of the Argentina government's action to devalue its currency effective December 17, 2015.  This loss relates to the impacts of the remeasurement of the local balance sheet at the date of the devaluation and impacted both our Agricultural Solutions and Lithium segments. Finally, the amount includes charges from continuing environmental sites treated as a Corporate charge of $13.4 million, a charge of $5.5 million associated with an agreement to obtain certain technology and intellectual property rights related to new compounds still under development within Agricultural Solutions and net miscellaneous charges of $3.9 million. 




Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2016:




Restructuring and other charges (income) includes charges of $42.3 million representing final adjustments to severance, asset write-offs, and other costs associated with the integration of Cheminova within Agricultural Solutions.  Integration-related costs associated with the integration of Cheminova were completed at the end of 2016. Amount also includes other miscellaneous restructuring costs of $11.1 million. Additionally, restructuring and other charges (income) includes $36.8 million of charges for continuing environmental sites treated as Corporate charges, $13.2 million associated with a license agreement to obtain certain technology and intellectual property rights for new compounds still under development, and $4.2 million as a result of the Argentina government's action to devalue its currency. These charges were offset by other miscellaneous income of $0.3 million.




Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2015:




Restructuring and other charges (income) includes a charge of $70.5 million as a result of mothballing of our Seal Sands Omega-3 production facility within Health and Nutrition as well as $117.3 million representing severance and asset disposal charges associated with the integration of Cheminova with Agricultural Solutions.  Charges also include  $23.6 million due to a reorganization with our FMC Health and Nutrition segment, of which, $12.3 million was due to the sale of our pectin manufacturing business.  Total charges also include the $10.7 million due to the Argentina currency devaluation, $21.7 million from continuing environmental sites treated as a Corporate charge, and $20.5 million associated with two separate license agreements entered into for the purpose of obtaining certain technology and intellectual property rights relating to new compounds still under development within Agricultural Solutions.  Partially offsetting these charges was other income associated with the sale of our remaining ownership interest in a Belgian-based pesticide distribution company for $26.6 million. Remaining restructuring and other charges (income) includes net miscellaneous charges of $6.3 million.



(b)

Our non-operating pension and postretirement costs are defined as those costs related to interest, expected return on plan assets, amortized actuarial gains and losses and the impacts of any plan curtailments or settlements. These costs are primarily related to changes in pension plan assets and liabilities which are tied to financial market performance and we consider these costs to be outside our operational performance. We exclude these non-operating pension and postretirement costs from our segments as we believe that removing them provides a better understanding of the underlying profitability of our businesses, provides increased transparency and clarity in the performance of our retirement plans and enhances period-over-period comparability. We continue to include the service cost and amortization of prior service cost in our Adjusted Earnings results noted above. We believe these elements reflect the current year operating costs to our businesses for the employment benefits provided to active employees.



(c)

Charges related to the expensing of the inventory fair value step-up resulting from the application of acquisition accounting, legal and professional fees and gains or losses on hedging purchase price associated with the planned or completed acquisitions. Amounts represent the following:

(d)

The income tax expense (benefit) on Corporate special charges (income) is determined using the applicable rates in the taxing jurisdictions in which the Corporate special charge or income occurred and includes both current and deferred income tax expense (benefit) based on the nature of the non-GAAP performance measure.



(e) 

Three and Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2016 and 2015:




Discontinued operations includes, in periods up to its sale, our FMC Alkali Chemicals division as well as provisions, net of recoveries, for environmental liabilities and legal reserves and expenses related to previously discontinued operations. The twelve months ended December 31, 2015 includes the divestiture gain of approximately $700 million associated with the sale of FMC Alkali Chemicals division which was completed on April 1, 2015.



(f)

We exclude the GAAP tax provision, including discrete items, from the Non-GAAP measure of income, and instead include a Non-GAAP tax provision based upon the annual Non-GAAP effective tax rate. The GAAP tax provision includes certain discrete tax items including, but are not limited to: income tax expenses or benefits that are not related to ongoing business operations in the current year; unusual or infrequently occurring items; tax adjustments associated with fluctuations in foreign currency remeasurement of certain foreign operations; certain changes in estimates of tax matters related to prior fiscal years; certain changes in the realizability of deferred tax assets; and changes in tax law. Management believes excluding these discrete tax items assists investors and securities analysts in understanding the tax provision and the effective tax rate related to ongoing operations thereby providing investors with useful supplemental information about FMC's operational performance.

FMC CORPORATION
FMC AGRICULTURAL SOLUTIONS PRO FORMA FINANCIAL RESULTS
(Unaudited, in millions)

In the second quarter of 2015, we began to present pro forma combined results for the FMC Agricultural Solutions segment. We believe that reviewing our operating results by combining actual and pro forma results for the FMC Agricultural Solutions segment for 2015 is more useful in identifying trends in, or reaching conclusions regarding, the overall operating performance of this segment. Our pro forma segment information will include adjustments as if the Cheminova transaction had occurred on January 1, 2015. Our pro forma data will also be adjusted for the effects of acquisition accounting but will not include adjustments for cost related to integration activities, cost savings or synergies that might be achieved by the combined businesses. Pro forma amounts to be presented will not necessarily be indicative of what our results would have been had we operated Cheminova since January 1, 2015, nor our future results. We believe that reviewing our operating results by combining actual and pro forma results for the FMC Agricultural Solutions segment for these periods is more useful in identifying trends in, or reaching conclusions regarding, the overall operating performance of the segment.
