Including the impacts from Livent IPO, 2018 adjusted earnings are expected to be in the range of $5.93 to $6.03 per diluted share, up 121 percent at the midpoint versus 20171,2

FMC Corporation (NYSE: FMC) today reported third quarter 2018 revenue of approximately $1.0 billion, an increase of 60 percent year-over-year.  On a GAAP basis, the company reported earnings of $0.54 per diluted share in the third quarter, or $73 million, which is 32 percent higher than the GAAP earnings of $0.41 per diluted share, or $55 million, in the third quarter of 2017.  Third quarter adjusted earnings were $0.98 per diluted share, an increase of 40 percent year-over-year, and 6 cents above the midpoint of prior guidance.  Segment results drove the majority of the outperformance, supplemented by a lower tax rate.  This was partially offset by higher corporate and other costs, largely driven by one-time foreign currency impacts on inter-company fund movements.

Pierre Brondeau, FMC CEO and chairman said: "FMC delivered another very strong quarter.  In Ag Solutions, we executed our commercial strategy particularly well in Brazil, where we implemented significant price increases to largely offset FX headwinds.  In Lithium, we had another strong operating quarter, and we also successfully completed the IPO of Livent Corporation on October 11, which sets us on a clear path to create two independent, pure-play companies."

FMC also announced it is launching a $200 million share repurchase program under its existing share repurchase authorization, to be completed by the end of 2018.

Andrew Sandifer, FMC EVP and CFO said: "FMC has reduced debt by nearly $600 million this year, including $300 million in the third quarter and an additional $150 million in October.  With leverage levels now in line with our long-term targets, we feel it is an appropriate time to resume returning excess cash to shareholders."

FMC further announced that it intends to spin off its approximately 85 percent stake in Livent Corporation to FMC shareholders, in the form of a pro-rata distribution of Livent shares, on March 1, 2019.  The planned separation is expected to be tax-free to FMC shareholders.  Further details will be announced closer to the actual distribution.  FMC Lithium will remain a reporting segment of FMC in the fourth quarter of 2018 but will be reported as discontinued operations when FMC reports first quarter results next year. 

FMC Agricultural Solutions

FMC Agricultural Solutions reported third quarter revenue of approximately $924 million, an increase of 67 percent year-over-year due to the strength of the DuPont acquisition.  On a pro forma basis, revenue increased 5 percent, with particularly strong demand and higher prices in Brazil.  Segment earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $216 million increased 57 percent year-over-year and were $11 million above the midpoint of the prior guidance range.  In the important Brazil market, higher prices and hedging were able to offset 100 percent of the FX impact on earnings in the quarter. 

Full-year 2018 revenue for Agricultural Solutions is still forecasted to be in the range of $4.2 billion to $4.26 billion.  At the midpoint, this implies 10 percent year-over-year growth on a pro forma basis.  Full-year segment EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $1.195 billion to $1.215 billion, which is an increase of $5 million at the midpoint versus prior guidance.  In the fourth quarter, the company is expecting 12 percent year-over-year growth on a pro forma basis, driven by Brazil and Europe; segment revenue is forecasted to be in the range of $1.015 billion to $1.075 billion, and segment EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $280 million to $300 million.       

FMC Lithium / Livent

FMC Lithium, known as Livent following its October IPO, reported third quarter segment revenue of $112 million, an increase of 19 percent versus the prior-year quarter.  Segment EBITDA increased 21 percent year-over-year to $49 million in the quarter.  Excluding $1.7 million in Livent standalone costs in Q3, most of which was duplicative personnel, EBITDA would have been $50 million.

Segment revenue for the full year of 2018 is still expected to be in the range of $440 million to $450 million, an increase of 28 percent at the midpoint compared to 2017.  The outlook for full-year segment EBITDA is a range of $193 million to $197 million, which includes a $5 million headwind from Livent standalone costs.  Excluding the standalone costs, this EBITDA forecast is in-line with prior guidance and it represents an increase of 37 percent at the midpoint compared to the prior year.

2018 Outlook1,2

Excluding $0.07 negative impact from Livent standalone costs (-$0.03) and non-controlling interest (-$0.04), FMC maintains its previous 2018 adjusted earnings per share of $6.05 at the midpoint of the range.  Including the impacts from Livent, 2018 adjusted earnings are expected to be in the range of $5.93 to $6.03 per diluted share, up 121 percent at the midpoint versus 2017.  FMC expects adjusted earnings per share to be in the range of $1.33 to $1.43 in the fourth quarter. 

Supplemental Information

The company will post supplemental information on the web at www.fmc.com, including its 2018 Outlook Statement, definitions of non-GAAP terms and reconciliations of non-GAAP figures to the nearest available GAAP term. 

About FMC

FMC Corporation provides solutions to growers around the world with a portfolio of proprietary crop protection products and a robust pipeline fueled by innovative discovery and development capabilities in crop protection, plant health and professional pest and turf maintenance solutions. In October 2018, FMC conducted an initial public offering of its Lithium business.  The new company, Livent Corporation, is approximately 85 percent owned by FMC and is expected to be spun off on March 1, 2019.  FMC employs approximately 7,300 employees (including through Livent) around the globe. To learn more, please visit www.fmc.com.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: Statements in this news release that are forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties concerning specific factors described in FMC Corporation's 2017 Form 10-K and other SEC filings. Such information contained herein represents management's best judgment as of the date hereof based on information currently available. FMC Corporation does not intend to update this information and disclaims any legal obligation to the contrary. Historical information is not necessarily indicative of future performance.

This press release contains certain "non-GAAP financial terms" which are defined on our website www.fmc.com.  In addition, we have also provided on our website at www.fmc.com reconciliations of non-GAAP terms to the most directly comparable GAAP term. 

1. Although we provide forecasts for adjusted earnings per share and adjusted cash from operations (both of which are non-GAAP financial measures), we are not able to forecast the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Certain elements of the composition of the GAAP amounts are not predictable, making it impractical for us to forecast.  Such elements include, but are not limited to, restructuring, acquisition charges, and discontinued operations and related cash activity.  As a result, no GAAP outlook is provided.

2. Adjusted earnings outlook includes the impact of Livent standalone costs and the subtraction of ~15% of Livent earnings from FMC EPS.  Excluding these impacts, FMC guidance for full year adjusted EPS would have been $6.00 to $6.10 and fourth quarter adjusted EPS would have been $1.40 to 1.50.

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 management, 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.



(a) 

Three Months Ended September 30, 2018:




Restructuring and other charges (income) is primarily comprised of charges within FMC Agricultural Solutions associated with the integration of the DuPont Crop Protection Business. Restructuring charges in FMC Agricultural Solutions were incurred as a continuation of our decision to exit the Ewing R&D center and change to our market access model in India of $14.9 million and $1.8 million, respectively. There were also other restructuring charges totaling $5.3 million within FMC Agricultural Solutions and $0.3 million in FMC Lithium. Additionally, restructuring and other charges (income) includes charges of continuing environmental sites treated as a Corporate charge of $2.4 million and other Corporate charges of $1.2 million.




Three Months Ended September 30, 2017:




Restructuring and other charges (income) represents $2.2 million of impairment charges of intangible assets within our FMC Agricultural Solutions segment. Additionally, restructuring and other charges (income) includes charges of continuing environmental sites treated as a Corporate charge of $2.7 million and other Corporate charges of $2.2 million.




Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018:




Restructuring and other charges (income) primarily consists of the total gain on sales of $87.2 million from the divestments of certain product portfolios as part of our commitment to both the European Commission and Competition Commission of India related to the DuPont Crop Protection Acquisition. Restructuring and other charges (income) also consists of $27.5 million of charges due to our decision to exit the Ewing R&D and $57.2 million of charges related to the change in our market access model in India. Other restructuring charges within FMC Agricultural Solutions as we continue to integrate the acquired DuPont Crop Protection Business totaled to $7.9 million. There were other restructuring charges of $8.5 million in FMC Agricultural Solutions. In FMC Lithium, there were restructuring and asset disposal charges of $2.4 million primarily as a result of restructuring our operations at the manufacturing site located in Bessemer City, North Carolina. Additionally, restructuring and other charges (income) includes charges of continuing environmental sites treated as a Corporate charge of $9.2 million and other Corporate charges of $3.7 million.




Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017:




Restructuring and other charges (income) represents $2.2 million of impairment charges of intangible assets write-offs and $4.7 million of exit costs related to the termination of our interest in a variable interest entity that was previously consolidated and part of our FMC Agricultural Solutions segment. Additionally, restructuring and other charges (income) includes charges of continuing environmental sites treated as a Corporate charge of $8.3 million and Corporate asset write-off charges of $2.2 million. Remaining restructuring and other charges (income) includes net miscellaneous charges of $4.9 million.



(b)

Our non-operating pension and postretirement charges (income) are defined as those costs (benefits) related to interest, expected return on plan assets, amortized actuarial gains and losses and the impacts of any plan curtailments or settlements. These are excluded from our segments results and 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 continue to include the service cost and amortization of prior service cost in our Adjusted Earnings results noted above. 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 purchase accounting as well as legal and professional fees associated with acquisition and separation activities. Amounts represent the following:

(e)

Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018 and 2017




Discontinued operations, net of income taxes include, in periods up to its sale on November 1, 2017, the results of FMC Health and Nutrition as well as provisions, net of recoveries, for environmental liabilities and legal reserves and expenses related to previously discontinued operations. Discontinued operations, net of income taxes for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 includes an additional gain on sale of the FMC Health and Nutrition business to DuPont of approximately $17 million as a result of the adjustment to the working capital. In the first quarter of 2017, we reclassified the FMC Health and Nutrition segment as a discontinued operation. We determined the fair value of the Omega-3 business, which was previously part of the broader FMC Health and Nutrition reporting unit, was significantly less than its carrying value. As a result, we recorded an impairment charge of approximately $168 million ($148 million, net of tax) for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.



(f)

We exclude the GAAP tax provision, including discrete items, from the Non-GAAP measure of income, and include a Non-GAAP tax provision based upon the projected 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 continuing operating results in the current year; 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 related interim accounting impacts; 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 continuing operating results thereby providing investors with useful supplemental information about FMC's operational performance.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, we recorded an adjustment to our provisional tax expense of $18.3 million of income tax expense pertaining to a change in the net transition tax to be paid, the estimated impact of the remeasurement of the Company's U.S. net deferred tax assets and the realizability of the Company's U.S. state net deferred tax assets.
