Financial report summary

?
Risks
  • Global Economic Considerations: The Company operates in a global, competitive environment which gives rise to operating and market risk exposure.
  • Financial Commitments and Credit Markets: Market conditions could reduce the Company's flexibility to respond to changing business conditions or fund capital needs.
  • Supply/Demand Balance: Earnings generated by the Company's products vary based in part on the balance of supply relative to demand within the industry.
  • Litigation: The Company is party to a number of claims and lawsuits arising out of the normal course of business with respect to product liability, patent infringement, employment matters, governmental tax and regulation disputes, contract and commercial litigation, and other actions.
  • Health and Safety: Increased concerns regarding the safe use of chemicals and plastics in commerce and their potential impact on the environment has resulted in more restrictive regulations and could lead to new regulations.
  • Plastic Waste: Increased concerns regarding plastic waste in the environment, consumers selectively reducing their consumption of plastic products due to recycling concerns, or new or more restrictive regulations and rules related to plastic waste could reduce demand for the Company’s plastic products and could negatively impact the Company’s financial results.
  • Operational Event: A significant operational event could negatively impact the Company's results of operations.
  • Cyber Threat: The risk of loss of the Company’s intellectual property, trade secrets or other sensitive business information or disruption of operations could negatively impact the Company’s financial results.

  • Goodwill: An impairment of goodwill could negatively impact the Company’s financial results.
  • Pension and Other Postretirement Benefits: Increased obligations and expenses related to the Company's defined benefit pension plans and other postretirement benefit plans could negatively impact its financial condition and results of operations.
  • Separation from DowDuPont: Risks related to achieving the anticipated benefits of Dow's separation from DowDuPont.
Management Discussion
  • 1. Portfolio & Other includes the sales impact of various manufacturing, supply and service related agreements entered into with DuPont and Corteva in connection with the separation which provide for different pricing than the historical intercompany and intracompany pricing practices of TDCC and Historical DuPont.
  • Net sales in the first quarter of 2020 were $9.8 billion, down 11 percent from $11.0 billion in the first quarter of last year, primarily due to a decrease in local price, a decrease in volume, an unfavorable impact from currency, and a favorable impact of Portfolio & Other. Sales decreased in all geographic regions and operating segments. Local price decreased 9 percent, primarily in response to lower feedstock and raw material costs, as well as unfavorable supply and demand fundamentals. Local price
  • decreased in Packaging & Specialty Plastics and Industrial Intermediates & Infrastructure (both down 9 percent), in Performance Materials & Coatings (down 8 percent) and all geographic regions. Volume decreased 2 percent with declines in all geographic regions, except Latin America (up 5 percent). Volume was flat in Packaging & Specialty Plastics and decreased in Industrial Intermediates & Infrastructure (down 3 percent) and Performance Materials & Coatings (down 4 percent). The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to the volume decrease, primarily in Asia Pacific and in Industrial Intermediates & Infrastructure and Performance Materials & Coatings. Currency unfavorably impacted net sales 1 percent compared with the same period last year, driven primarily by EMEAI (down 2 percent) and Asia Pacific (down 1 percent). Portfolio & Other favorably impacted net sales 1 percent and was flat in all segments with the exception of Performance Materials & Coatings (up 3 percent).
