DuPont de Nemours, Inc.

Throughout this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, except as otherwise noted by the context, the terms "DuPont" or "Company" used herein mean DuPont de Nemours, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries. On June 1, 2019, DowDuPont Inc. changed its registered name to DuPont de Nemours, Inc. (“DuPont”) (for certain events prior to June 1, 2019, the Company may be referred to as DowDuPont). Beginning on June 3, 2019, the Company's common stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "DD."

On April 1, 2019, the Company completed the separation of its materials science business into a separate and independent public company by way of a distribution of Dow Inc. (“Dow”) through a pro rata dividend in-kind of all of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Dow’s common stock (the “Dow Distribution”). On June 1, 2019, the Company completed the separation of its agriculture business into a separate and independent public company by way of a distribution of Corteva, Inc. (“Corteva”) through a pro rata dividend in-kind of all of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Corteva’s common stock (the “Corteva Distribution”).

Following the Corteva Distribution, DuPont holds the specialty products business as continuing operations. The results of operations of DuPont for the 2019 interim periods presented reflect the historical financial results of Dow and Corteva as discontinued operations, as applicable. The cash flows and comprehensive income related to Dow and Corteva have not been segregated and are included in the interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows and interim Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income, respectively, for the applicable period. Unless otherwise indicated, the information in the notes to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements refer only to DuPont's continuing operations and do not include discussion of balances or activity of Dow or Corteva.

On December 15, 2019, DuPont and International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. ("IFF") announced entry into definitive agreements to combine DuPont’s Nutrition & Biosciences business (the "N&B Business") with IFF in a transaction that would result in IFF issuing shares to DuPont shareholders. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021, subject to approval by IFF shareholders and other customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals and receipt by DuPont of an opinion of tax counsel.

DuPontTM and all products, unless otherwise noted, denoted with TM, SM or ® are trademarks, service marks or registered trademarks of affiliates of DuPont de Nemours, Inc.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This communication contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business and financial performance and financial condition, and often contain words such as "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "see," "will," "would," "target," and similar expressions and variations or negatives of these words.

Forward-looking statements address matters that are, to varying degrees, uncertain and subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions, many of which that are beyond DuPont's control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results. Some of the important factors that could cause DuPont's actual results to differ materially from those projected in any such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: (i) the parties’ ability to meet expectations regarding the timing, completion and accounting and tax treatments of the intended transaction with IFF; changes in relevant tax and other laws, (ii) failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals, approval of IFF’s shareholders, anticipated tax treatment or any required financing or to satisfy any of the other conditions to the intended transaction with IFF, (iii) the possibility that unforeseen liabilities, future capital expenditures, revenues, expenses, earnings, synergies, economic performance, indebtedness, financial condition, losses, future prospects, business and management strategies that could impact the value, timing or pursuit of the intended transaction with IFF, (iv) risks and costs and pursuit and/or implementation of the separation of the N&B Business, including timing anticipated to complete the separation, any changes to the configuration of businesses included in the separation if implemented, (v) risks and costs related to the Dow Distribution and the Corteva Distribution (together, the “Distributions”) including (a) with respect to achieving all expected benefits from the Distributions; (b) the incurrence of significant costs in connection with the Distributions, including costs to service debt incurred by the Company to establish the relative credit profiles of Corteva, Dow and DuPont and increased costs related to supply, service and other arrangements that, prior to the Dow Distribution, were between entities under the common control of DuPont; (c) indemnification of certain legacy liabilities of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company ("Historical EID") in connection with the Corteva Distribution; and (d) potential liability arising from fraudulent conveyance and similar laws in connection with the Distributions; (vi) failure to effectively manage acquisitions, divestitures, alliances, joint ventures and other portfolio changes, including meeting conditions under the Letter Agreement entered in connection with the Corteva Distribution, related to the transfer of certain levels of assets and businesses; (vii) uncertainty as to the long-term value of DuPont common stock; (viii) potential inability or reduced access to the capital markets or increased cost of borrowings, including as a result of a

4



credit rating downgrade (ix) risks and uncertainties related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the responses thereto (such as voluntary and in some cases, mandatory quarantines as well as shut downs and other restrictions on travel and commercial, social and other activities) on DuPont’s business, results of operations, access to sources of liquidity and financial condition which depend on highly uncertain and unpredictable future developments, including, but not limited to, the duration and spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, its severity, the actions to contain the virus or treat its impact, and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions resume and (x) other risks to DuPont's business, operations and results of operations including from: failure to develop and market new products and optimally manage product life cycles; ability, cost and impact on business operations, including the supply chain, of responding to changes in market acceptance, rules, regulations and policies and failure to respond to such changes; outcome of significant litigation, environmental matters and other commitments and contingencies; failure to appropriately manage process safety and product stewardship issues; global economic and capital market conditions, including the continued availability of capital and financing, as well as inflation, interest and currency exchange rates; changes in political conditions, including tariffs, trade disputes and retaliatory actions; impairment of goodwill or intangible assets; the availability of and fluctuations in the cost of energy and raw materials; business or supply disruption, including in connection with the Distributions; ability to effectively manage costs as the company’s portfolio evolves; security threats, such as acts of sabotage, terrorism or war, global health concerns and pandemics, natural disasters and weather events and patterns which could or could continue to result in a significant operational event for DuPont, adversely impact demand or production; ability to discover, develop and protect new technologies and to protect and enforce DuPont's intellectual property rights; unpredictability and severity of catastrophic events, including, but not limited to, acts of terrorism or outbreak of war or hostilities, as well as management's response to any of the aforementioned factors. These risks are and will be more fully discussed in DuPont's current, quarterly and annual reports and other filings made with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, in each case, as may be amended from time to time in future filings with the SEC. While the list of factors presented here is considered representative, no such list should be considered a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements. Consequences of material differences in results as compared with those anticipated in the forward-looking statements could include, among other things, business disruption, operational problems, financial loss, legal liability to third parties and similar risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on DuPont’s consolidated financial condition, results of operations, credit rating or liquidity. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. DuPont assumes no obligation to publicly provide revisions or updates to any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, should circumstances change, except as otherwise required by securities and other applicable laws. A detailed discussion of some of the significant risks and uncertainties which may cause results and events to differ materially from such forward-looking statements is included in the section titled “Risk Factors” in (Part I, Item 1A) of DuPont’s 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K and in (Part II, Item 1A) of this Form 10-Q.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Interim Financial Statements
The accompanying unaudited interim Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. In the opinion of management, the interim statements reflect all adjustments (including normal recurring accruals) which are considered necessary for the fair statement of the results for the periods presented. Results from interim periods should not be considered indicative of results for the full year. These interim Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, collectively referred to as the “2019 Annual Report.” The interim Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its subsidiaries in which a controlling interest is maintained.

Impact of the Novel Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in significant economic disruption and continues to adversely impact the broader global economy. The extent of the impact on the Company's operational and financial performance will depend on future developments, including, but not limited to, the duration and spread of the outbreak and its impact on the Company's customers and suppliers. As of the date of issuance of these interim Consolidated Financial Statements, the full extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may materially impact the Company's financial condition, liquidity, or results of operations remains uncertain.
 
Basis of Presentation
Effective August 31, 2017, pursuant to the merger of equals transaction contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 11, 2015, as amended on March 31, 2017 ("Merger Agreement"), The Dow Chemical Company ("Historical Dow") and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company ("Historical EID") each merged with subsidiaries of DowDuPont Inc. ("DowDuPont") and, as a result, Historical Dow and Historical EID became subsidiaries of DowDuPont (the "Merger"). Prior to the Merger, DowDuPont did not conduct any business activities other than those required for its formation and matters contemplated by the Merger Agreement. Historical Dow was determined to be the accounting acquirer in the Merger.

Except as otherwise indicated by the context, the term "Historical Dow" includes Historical Dow and its consolidated subsidiaries, "Historical EID" includes Historical EID and its consolidated subsidiaries, and "Dow Silicones" means Dow Silicones Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Historical Dow.

Distributions
Effective as of 5:00 p.m. on April 1, 2019, the Company completed the separation of its materials science business into a separate and independent public company by way of a distribution of Dow Inc. (“Dow”) through a pro rata dividend in-kind of all of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Dow’s common stock (the “Dow Common Stock”), to holders of the Company’s common stock (the “DowDuPont common stock”), as of the close of business on March 21, 2019 (the “Dow Distribution”).

On December 15, 2019, the Company entered into definitive agreements to separate and combine the Nutrition & Biosciences business segment (the "N&B Business") with International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. ("IFF") in a tax-efficient Reverse Morris Trust transaction, (the "Intended N&B Transaction"). The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021, subject to approval by IFF shareholders and other customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals and receipt by DuPont of an opinion of tax counsel. The financial results of the N&B Business are included in continuing operations for the periods presented.


NOTE 2 - RECENT ACCOUNTING GUIDANCE
Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, and associated ASUs related to Topic 326. The new guidance introduces the current expected credit loss (“CECL”) model, which requires organizations to record an allowance for credit losses for certain financial instruments and financial assets, including trade receivables, based on expected losses rather than incurred losses. Under this update, on initial recognition and at each reporting period, an entity will be required to recognize an allowance that reflects the entity’s current estimate of credit losses expected to be incurred over the life of the financial instrument. This update became effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019.

The Company adopted the new standard in the first quarter of 2020, which required a modified retrospective transition approach, applying the new standard's cumulative-effect adjustment at the date of initial adoption. This cumulative-effect has been reflected as of January 1, 2020 and prior periods have not been restated. The impact of initial adoption was not material to the Company’s interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet, interim Consolidated Statements of Operations, and interim Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.

NOTE 4 - REVENUE
Revenue Recognition
Products
Substantially all of DuPont's revenue is derived from product sales. Product sales consist of sales of DuPont's products to supply manufacturers and distributors. DuPont considers purchase orders, which in some cases are governed by master supply agreements, to be a contract with a customer. Contracts with customers are considered to be short-term when the time between order confirmation and satisfaction of the performance obligations is equal to or less than one year.

Disaggregation of Revenue
The Company disaggregates its revenue from contracts with customers by segment and business or major product line and geographic region, as the Company believes it best depicts the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of its revenue and cash flows.

During the second quarter of 2020, Electronics & Imaging realigned a component within the Semiconductor Technologies product line to the Image Solutions product line. The reporting changes have been retrospectively reflected for all periods presented.

Contract Balances
From time to time, the Company enters into arrangements in which it receives payments from customers based upon contractual billing schedules. The Company records accounts receivable when the right to consideration becomes unconditional. Contract assets include amounts related to the Company’s contractual right to consideration for completed performance obligations not yet invoiced. Contract liabilities primarily reflect deferred revenue from advance payment for product that the Company has received from customers. The Company classifies deferred revenue as current or noncurrent based on the timing of when the Company expects to recognize revenue.

Revenue recognized in the first six months of 2020 from amounts included in contract liabilities at the beginning of the period was approximately $14 million (approximately $25 million in the first six months of 2019). The amount of contract assets reclassified to receivables as a result of the right to the transaction consideration becoming unconditional was insignificant. The Company did not recognize any asset impairment charges related to contract assets during the period.

The DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program is considered substantially complete at June 30, 2020.

Asset Impairments
In the second quarter of 2020, the Company recorded a $21 million pre-tax impairment charge related to indefinite-lived intangible assets within the Transportation & Industrial segment. This charge was recorded within “Restructuring and asset related charges - net” in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. See Note 11 for further discussion.

The Company reviews and evaluates its long-lived assets for impairment when events and changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable and may exceed their fair value. For purposes of determining impairment, assets are grouped at the lowest level for which identifiable cash flows are largely independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets and liabilities.

In the first quarter of 2020, expectations of proceeds related to certain potential divestitures within the Non-Core segment gave rise to fair value indicators and, thus, triggering events requiring the Company to perform a recoverability assessment related to its biomaterials business unit. The Company performed a long-lived asset impairment test and determined that, based on undiscounted cash flows, the carrying amount of certain long-lived assets was not recoverable. Accordingly, the Company estimated the fair value of these assets using a market approach utilizing Level 3 unobservable inputs. As a result, the Company recognized a $270 million pre-tax impairment charge recorded within “Restructuring and asset related charges - net” in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations for the six months ended June 30, 2020 with the charge impacting definite-lived intangible assets and property, plant, and equipment.

Equity Method Investment Impairment Related Charges
In preparation for the Corteva Distribution, Historical EID completed the separation of the assets and liabilities related to its specialty products businesses into separate legal entities (the “SP Legal Entities”) and on May 1, 2019, Historical EID distributed the SP Legal Entities to DowDuPont (the “Internal SP Distribution”). The Internal SP Distribution served as a triggering event requiring the Company to perform an impairment analysis related to equity method investments held by the Company as of May 1, 2019. The Company applied the net asset value method under the cost approach to determine the fair value of the equity method investments in the Nutrition & Biosciences segment. Based on updated projections, the Company determined the fair value of the equity method investment was below the carrying value and had no expectation the fair value would recover in the short-term due to the current economic environment. As a result, management concluded the impairment was other-than-temporary and recorded an impairment charge of $63 million in “Restructuring and asset related charges - net” in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations related to the Nutrition & Biosciences segment for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.

Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash
From time to time, the Company is required to set aside funds for various activities that arise in the normal course of business. These funds typically have legal restrictions associated with them and are deposited in an escrow account or held in a separately identifiable account by the Company. Historical EID entered into a trust agreement in 2013 (as amended and restated in 2017), establishing and requiring Historical EID to fund a trust (the "Trust") for cash obligations under certain non-qualified benefit and deferred compensation plans upon a change in control event as defined in the Trust agreement. Under the Trust agreement, the consummation of the Merger was a change in control event. After the distribution of Corteva, the Trust assets related to Corteva employees were transferred to a new trust for Corteva (the "Corteva Trust"). As a result, the Trust currently held by DuPont relates to funding obligations to DuPont employees. At June 30, 2020, the Company had restricted cash of $32 million ($37 million at December 31, 2019) included in "Other current assets" in the interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets which was completely attributed to the Trust.

Accrued and Other Current Liabilities
"Accrued and other current liabilities" in the interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets were $1,496 million at June 30, 2020 and $1,342 million at December 31, 2019. No component of "Accrued and other current liabilities" was more than 5 percent of total current liabilities at June 30, 2020. Accrued payroll, which is a component of "Accrued and other current liabilities," was $479 million at December 31, 2019. No other component of "Accrued and other current liabilities" was more than 5 percent of total current liabilities at December 31, 2019.


NOTE 7 - INCOME TAXES
For periods between the Merger and the Distributions, DuPont's consolidated federal income tax group and consolidated tax return included the Dow and Corteva entities. Generally, the consolidated tax liability of the DuPont U.S. tax group for each year was apportioned among the members of the consolidated group in accordance with the terms of the Amended and Restated Tax Matters Agreement. DuPont, Corteva and Dow intend that to the extent Federal and/or State corporate income tax liabilities are reduced through the utilization of tax attributes of the other, settlement of any receivable and payable generated from the use of the other party’s sub-group attributes will be in accordance with the Amended and Restated Tax Matters Agreement.

The Company's effective tax rate fluctuates based on, among other factors, where income is earned and the level of income relative to tax attributes. The effective tax rate on continuing operations for the second quarter of 2020 was 1.4 percent, compared with an effective tax rate of (16.4) percent for the second quarter of 2019. For the first six months of 2020, the effective tax rate on continuing operations was (0.3) percent, compared with (5.8) percent for the first six months of 2019. The effective tax rate for the second quarter and for the first six months of 2020 was principally the result of a non-tax-deductible goodwill impairment charge impacting the Transportation and Industrial segment in the second quarter and a non-tax-deductible goodwill impairment charge impacting the Non-Core segment in the first quarter. The tax rate in the second quarter of 2019 and for the first six months of 2019 was principally the result of the non-tax-deductible goodwill impairment charges impacting the Nutrition & Biosciences and Non-Core segments. See Note 11 for more information regarding the goodwill impairment charges.

Each year the Company files hundreds of tax returns in the various national, state and local income taxing jurisdictions in which it operates. These tax returns are subject to examination and possible challenge by the tax authorities. Positions challenged by the tax authorities may be settled or appealed by the Company. As a result, there is an uncertainty in income taxes recognized in the Company’s financial statements in accordance with accounting for income taxes and accounting for uncertainty in income taxes. The ultimate resolution of such uncertainties is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's results of operations.

The Company tests goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment annually during the fourth quarter as of October 1, or more frequently when events or changes in circumstances indicate that fair value is below carrying value. As a result of the related acquisition method of accounting in connection with the Merger, Historical EID’s assets and liabilities were measured at fair value resulting in increases to the Company’s goodwill and other intangible assets. The fair value valuation increased the risk that declines in financial projections, including changes to key assumptions, could have a material, negative impact on the fair value of the Company’s reporting units and assets, and therefore could result in an impairment.

The Company continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the broader global economy, including the end markets which the Company serves. In the second quarter of 2020, continued near-term demand weakness in global automotive production resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, along with revised views of recovery based on third party market information, served as a triggering event requiring the Company to perform an impairment analysis of the goodwill associated with its Transportation & Industrial reporting unit as of June 30, 2020. The carrying value of the Transportation & Industrial reporting unit is comprised substantially of Historical EID’s assets and liabilities which were measured at fair value in connection with the Merger, and thus inherently considered at risk for impairment. The Company performed quantitative testing on its Transportation & Industrial reporting unit, using a combination of the discounted cash flow model (a form of the income approach) utilizing Level 3 unobservable inputs and the Guideline Public Company Method (a form of the market approach), as further described below. Based on the analysis performed, the Company concluded that the carrying amount of the reporting unit exceeded its fair value resulting in a pre-tax, non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $2,498 million, reflected in "Goodwill impairment charges" in the Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020.

The Company's goodwill analysis referenced above used the discounted cash flow model (a form of the income approach) utilizing Level 3 unobservable inputs. The Company’s significant assumptions in this analysis included, but were not limited to, future cash flow projections, the weighted average cost of capital, the terminal growth rate, and the tax rate. The Company’s estimates of future cash flows are based on current regulatory and economic climates, recent operating results, and planned business strategies. These estimates could be negatively affected by changes in federal, state, or local regulations or economic downturns. Future cash flow estimates are, by their nature, subjective and actual results may differ materially from the Company’s estimates. If the Company’s ongoing estimates of future cash flows are not met, the Company may have to record additional impairment charges in future periods.

The Company also used the Guideline Public Company Method (a form of the market approach). The significant assumptions used in this analysis include, but are not limited to, the derived multiples from comparable market transactions and other market data. The selection of comparable businesses is based on the markets in which the reporting unit operates giving consideration to risk profiles, size, geography, and diversity of products and services.

The Company probability-weighted scenarios for both the income and market approaches and also applied an overall probability-weighting to the income and market approaches to determine the concluded fair value of the reporting unit given the uncertainty in the current economic environment to determine the concluded fair value of the reporting unit. The Company believes the current assumptions and estimates utilized in the income and market approaches are both reasonable and appropriate.

In the first quarter of 2020, expectations of proceeds related to certain potential divestitures within the Non-Core segment gave rise to fair value indicators and, thus, served as triggering events requiring the Company to perform impairment analyses related to goodwill as of March 31, 2020. As part of the analysis, the Company determined that the fair value of its Photovoltaic and Advanced Materials (“PVAM”) reporting unit was below its carry value resulting in an impairment charge to goodwill. Valuations of the PVAM reporting unit under a combination of the market approach and income approach reflected softening conditions in photovoltaics markets as compared to prior estimates. In connection with this analysis, the Company recorded a pre-tax, non-cash

25



goodwill impairment charge of $533 million in the first quarter of 2020 impacting the Non-Core segment. This charge is reflected in "Goodwill impairment charges" in the Consolidated Statements of Operations for the six months ended June 30, 2020. As a result of the impairment, the carrying value of the PVAM reporting unit is indicative of fair value and thus is at risk to have impairment charges in future periods.

In the second quarter of 2019, the Company recorded pre-tax, non-cash goodwill impairment charges of $1,175 million impacting the Nutrition & Biosciences and Non-Core segments which are reflected in "Goodwill impairment charges" in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019.

COVID-19 continues to adversely impact the broader global economy and has caused significant volatility in financial markets. If there is a of lack of recovery, the time period to recovery is longer than expected or further global softening is experienced in certain markets, such as automotive, aerospace, commercial construction, oil & gas and select industrial end-markets, or a sustained decline in the value of the Company's common stock, the Company may be required to perform additional impairment assessments for its goodwill, other intangibles, and long-lived assets, the results of which could result in material impairment charges.

In the second quarter of 2020, the Company performed quantitative testing on indefinite-lived intangible assets attributable to the Transportation & Industrial segment, for which the Company determined that the fair value of certain tradenames had declined related to the factors described above. The Company performed an analysis of the fair value using the relief from royalty method (a form of the income approach) using Level 3 inputs within the fair value hierarchy. The key assumptions used in the calculation included projected revenue, royalty rates and discount rates. These key assumptions involve management judgment and estimates relating to future operating performance and economic conditions that may differ from actual cash flows. As a result of the testing, the Company recorded a pre-tax, non-cash indefinite-lived intangible asset impairment charge of $21 million ($16 million after tax), which is reflected in "Restructuring and asset related charges - net," in the Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. The remaining net book value of the tradenames attributable to the Transportation & Industrial segment at June 30, 2020 was approximately $289 million, which represents fair value.

In the first quarter of 2020, the Company recorded non-cash impairment charges related to definite-lived intangible assets impacting the Non-Core segment reflected within “Restructuring and asset related charges - net” in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations for the six months ended June 30, 2020. See Note 5 for further discussion.

NOTE 12 - SHORT-TERM BORROWINGS, LONG-TERM DEBT AND AVAILABLE CREDIT FACILITIES
Debt Offering
On May 1, 2020, the Company completed an underwritten public offering of senior unsecured notes (the “Notes”) in the aggregate principal amount of $2 billion of 2.169 percent fixed rate Notes due May 1, 2023 (the “May Debt Offering”). The proceeds from the May Debt Offering are expected to be used by the Company to repay or redeem the Company’s $0.5 billion in floating rate notes due November 2020 and $1.5 billion of 3.77 percent fixed-rate notes due November 2020 (collectively, the “2020 Notes”). Upon consummation of the Intended N&B Transaction, the Company will be required to mail a notice of redemption to holders of the Notes, with a copy to the Trustee, setting forth the date of redemption of all of the Notes on the date (“Special Mandatory Redemption Date”) that is the later of (i) three (3) Business Days after the consummation of the Intended N&B Transaction and (ii) May 1, 2021. On the Special Mandatory Redemption Date, the Company will be required to redeem all of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, up to but excluding the Special Mandatory Redemption Date. The Indenture also contains certain limitations on the Company’s ability to incur liens and enter into sale lease-back transactions, as well as customary events of default.

Revolving Credit Facility
In June 2019, the Company entered into a $750 million, 364-day revolving credit facility (the "Old 364-Day Revolving Credit Facility"). On and effective as of April 16, 2020, the Company entered into a new $1.0 billion 364-day revolving credit facility (the “$1B Revolving Credit Facility"). As of the effectiveness of the $1B Revolving Credit Facility, the Old 364-Day Revolving Credit Facility was terminated.

Nutrition & Biosciences Financing
In connection with the Intended N&B Transaction, DuPont and Nutrition & Biosciences, Inc. (presently a wholly owned subsidiary of DuPont) (“N&B Inc.”) entered into a Bridge Commitment Letter (the “Bridge Letter”) in an aggregate principal amount of $7.5 billion (the “Bridge Loans”) to secure committed financing for a one-time $7.3 billion cash payment, subject to adjustment, to DuPont (the "Special Cash Payment") and related financing fees. The aggregate commitment under the Bridge Letter is reduced by, among other things, (1) the amount of net cash proceeds received by N&B Inc. from any issuance of senior unsecured notes pursuant to a Rule 144A offering or other private placement (the "N&B Notes Offering") and (2) certain qualifying term loan commitments under senior unsecured term loan facilities.
In January 2020, N&B Inc. entered into a senior unsecured term loan agreement in the amount of $1.25 billion split evenly between three- and five-year facilities. As a result of entry into the term loan agreement, the commitments under the Bridge Commitment Letter were reduced to $6.25 billion.

NOTE 13 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES
Litigation and Environmental Matters
As of June 30, 2020, the Company had recorded liabilities of $23 million associated with litigation matters and $79 million associated with environmental matters. These recorded liabilities include the Company’s indemnification obligations to each of Dow and Corteva.

Under the Separation and Distribution Agreement, liabilities, including cost and expenses, associated with litigation and environmental matters that primarily related to the materials science business, the agriculture business or the specialty products business were generally allocated to or retained by Dow, Corteva or the Company, respectively, through retention, assumption or indemnification. Related to the foregoing, at June 30, 2020, DuPont has recorded (i) a liability of $37 million (although it is reasonably possible that the ultimate cost could range up to $98 million above the amount accrued) for retained or assumed environmental liabilities, (ii) a liability of $2 million for retained or assumed litigation liabilities, and (iii) an indemnification liability related to legal and environmental matters of $58 million. Liabilities associated with discontinued and/or divested operations and businesses of Historical Dow generally were allocated to or retained by Dow. The allocation of liabilities associated with the discontinued and/or divested operations and businesses of Historical EID is discussed below.

Discontinued and/or Divested Operations and Businesses ("DDOB") Liabilities of Historical EID
Under the Separation and Distribution Agreement and the Letter Agreement between Corteva and DuPont, DDOB liabilities of Historical EID primarily related to Historical EID’s agriculture business were allocated to or retained by Corteva and those primarily related to Historical EID’s specialty products business were allocated to or retained by the Company. Historical EID DDOB liabilities not primarily related to Historical EID’s agriculture business or specialty products business (“Stray Liabilities”), are allocated as follows:

Generally, indemnifiable losses as defined in the Separation and Distribution Agreement, (“Indemnifiable Losses”) for Stray Liabilities, to the extent they do not arise out of actions related to or resulting from the development, testing, manufacture or sale of PFAS, defined below, (“Non-PFAS Stray Liabilities”) that are known as of April 1, 2019 are borne by Corteva up to a specified amount set forth in the schedules to the Separation and Distribution Agreement and/or Letter Agreement. Non-PFAS Stray Liabilities in excess of such specified amounts and any Non-PFAS Stray Liabilities not listed in the schedules to the Separation and Distribution Agreement or Letter Agreement are borne by Corteva and/or DuPont up to separate, aggregate thresholds of $200 million each to the extent Corteva or DuPont, as applicable, incurs an Indemnifiable Loss. Once Corteva’s or DuPont’s $200 million threshold is met, the other would generally bear all Non-PFAS Stray Liabilities until meeting its $200 million threshold. After the respective $200 million thresholds are met, DuPont will bear 71 percent of such losses and Corteva will bear 29 percent of such losses.
Generally, Corteva and the Company will each bear 50 percent of the first $300 million (up to $150 million each) for Indemnifiable Losses arising out of actions to the extent related to or resulting from the development, testing, manufacture or sale of per- or polyfluoroalkyl substances, which include collectively perfluorooctanoic acids and its salts (“PFOA”), perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (“PFOS”) and perfluorinated chemicals and compounds (“PFCs”) (all such substances, “PFAS” and such Stray Liabilities referred to as “PFAS Stray Liabilities”). Indemnifiable Losses to the extent related to PFAS Stray Liabilities in excess of $300 million generally will be borne 71 percent by the Company and 29 percent by Corteva, unless either Corteva or DuPont has met its $200 million threshold. In that event, the other company would bear all PFAS Stray Liabilities until that company meets its $200 million threshold, at which point DuPont will bear 71 percent of such losses and Corteva will bear 29 percent of such losses.
Indemnifiable Losses incurred by the companies in relation to PFAS Stray Liabilities up to $300 million (e.g., up to $150 million each) will be applied to each company’s respective $200 million threshold.

Indemnifiable Losses, as defined in the Separation and Distribution Agreement, include, among other things, attorneys’, accountants’, consultants’ and other professionals’ fees and expenses incurred in the investigation or defense of Stray Liabilities.

DuPont expects to continue to incur directly and as Indemnifiable Losses, costs and expenses related to litigation defense, such as attorneys’ fees and expenses and court costs, in connection with the Stray Liabilities described below. In accordance with its accounting policy for litigation matters, the Company will expense such litigation defense costs as incurred which could be significant to the Company’s financial condition and/or cash flows in the period.

Even when the Company believes the probability of loss or of an adverse unappealable final judgment is remote, the Company may consider settlement of these matters, and may enter into settlement agreements, if it believes settlement is in the best interest of the Company, including avoidance of future distraction and litigation defense cost, and its shareholders.

28



Stray Liabilities
Non-PFAS Stray Liabilities
While DuPont believes it is probable that it will incur a liability related to Non-PFAS Stray Liabilities, such liability is not reasonably estimable at June 30, 2020. Therefore, at June 30, 2020, DuPont has not recorded an accrual related to Non-PFAS Liabilities.

PFAS Stray Liabilities
Chemours Suit
On July 1, 2015, Historical EID completed the separation of Historical EID’s Performance Chemicals segment through the spin-off of all the issued and outstanding stock of The Chemours Company (“Chemours”) to holders of Historical EID common stock. In connection with the spin, Historical EID and Chemours entered into a Separation Agreement (as amended, the "Chemours Separation Agreement"). Pursuant to the Chemours Separation Agreement, Chemours is obligated to indemnify Historical EID, including its current or former affiliates, against certain litigation, environmental and other liabilities that arose prior to the Chemours Separation. The term of this indemnification is generally indefinite and includes defense costs and expenses, as well as monetary and non-monetary settlements and judgments.

In 2017, Historical EID and Chemours amended the Chemours Separation Agreement to provide for a limited sharing of potential future PFOA liabilities for a five-year period that began on July 6, 2017. The amended agreement provides that during that five-year period, Chemours will annually pay the first $25 million of future PFOA liabilities and, if that amount is exceeded, Historical EID will pay any excess amount up to the next $25 million, with Chemours annually bearing any excess liabilities above that amount. If Historical EID were required to pay PFOA liabilities pursuant to the amended agreement, fifty percent of such obligation would be borne by the Company in accordance with the Letter Agreement. In connection with the foregoing, the Company has not recorded or paid a PFOA liability. At the end of the five-year period, this limited sharing agreement will expire, and Chemours’ indemnification obligations under the Chemours Separation Agreement will continue unchanged.

On May 13, 2019, Chemours filed suit in the Delaware Court of Chancery against Historical EID, Corteva and the Company in an attempt to limit its responsibility for the litigation and environmental liabilities allocated to and assumed by Chemours under the Chemours Separation Agreement. Chemours is asking the court to rewrite the Chemours Separation Agreement by either limiting Chemours’ liabilities or, alternatively, ordering the return to Chemours of all or a portion of a $3.91 billion dividend that Chemours paid to Historical EID, Chemours’ then-sole-shareholder, just prior to the spin of Chemours. DuPont and Corteva, acting jointly, filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit for lack of subject matter jurisdiction and initiated an arbitration of the dispute as required under the Chemours Separation Agreement. In December 2019, following argument, the Delaware Court of Chancery stayed arbitration pending resolution of the motion to dismiss. On March 30, 2020, the Court of Chancery granted the motion to dismiss and rejected Chemours’ arguments in their entirety. Chemours filed a notice of appeal on April 17, 2020 with the Delaware Supreme Court. Meanwhile, the confidential arbitration process is proceeding.

Indemnifiable Losses related to the Chemours suit are PFAS Stray Liabilities subject to the sharing arrangement between DuPont and Corteva, described above. The Company believes the probability of a final unappealable judgment of liability with respect to the Chemours suit to be remote; the defendants continue to vigorously defend full indemnity rights as set forth in the Chemours Separation Agreement. 

PFAS Matters
Historical EID is a party to legal proceedings relating to the use of PFOA and PFCs by its former Performance Chemicals segment. Indemnifiable Losses related to PFAS liabilities allocated to and assumed by Chemours under the Chemours Separation Agreement generally are PFAS Stray Liabilities subject to the sharing arrangement between DuPont and Corteva, described above.

Generally, Chemours, with reservations, including as to alleged fraudulent conveyance and voidable transactions, is defending and indemnifying Historical EID in the PFAS Matters discussed below. Although Chemours has refused the tender of the Company’s defense in the actions in which the Company has been named, DuPont believes it is remote that it will ultimately incur a liability in connection with these PFAS Matters.

Personal Injury and Other PFAS Actions
DuPont, which was formed after the spin-off of Chemours, is not named in the personal injury and other PFAS actions discussed below.


29



Personal Injury
In 2004, Historical EID settled a West Virginia state court class action, Leach v. DuPont, which alleged that PFOA from Historical EID’s former Washington Works facility had contaminated area drinking water supplies and affected the health of area residents. Historical EID has residual liabilities under the Leach settlement related to providing PFOA water treatment to six area water districts and private well users and to fund, through an escrow account, up to $235 million for a medical monitoring program for eligible class members.

Members of the Leach class have standing to pursue personal injury claims for just six health conditions that an expert panel appointed under the Leach settlement reported in 2012 had a “probable link” (as defined in the settlement) with PFOA: pregnancy-induced hypertension, including preeclampsia; kidney cancer; testicular cancer; thyroid disease; ulcerative colitis; and diagnosed high cholesterol. In 2017, Chemours and Historical EID each paid $335 million to settle the multi-district litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio (“Ohio MDL”), thereby resolving claims of about 3,550 plaintiffs alleging injury from exposure to PFOA in drinking water. The 2017 settlement did not resolve claims of Leach class members who did not have claims in the Ohio MDL or whose claims are based on diseases first diagnosed after February 11, 2017. About 80 claims alleging personal injury, including kidney and testicular cancer claims, have been filed since the 2017 settlement. These claims are currently pending in the Ohio MDL. The first two cases, one captioned “Abbott v E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company” and the other “Swartz v. E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company”, involving a testicular cancer and a kidney cancer claim, respectively, proceeded to trial in January 2020. In the Abbott case, the jury returned a verdict in March 2020 against Historical EID, awarding $50 million in compensatory damages to the plaintiff and his wife, who claimed that exposure to PFOA in drinking water caused him to develop testicular cancer. Historical EID will appeal the verdict. The plaintiffs also sought but were not awarded punitive damages. In the Swartz matter, the jury could not reach a verdict. Therefore, the court declared a mistrial and the matter will be retried at a later date. The trials in the cases originally scheduled for June 2020 were postponed to August 2020 and have been further postponed to October 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Natural Resource Damage Claims and Other Claims for Environmental Damages
In addition to the actions described above, there are about 100 cases alleging damages to natural resources, the environment and/or property as well as various other allegations. DuPont is named as a defendant in certain of these actions as discussed below.

Drinking Water
Since May 2017, a number of municipal water districts and state attorneys general have filed lawsuits against Historical EID, Chemours, 3M, and others, claiming contamination of public water systems by certain PFAS compounds. Such actions are currently pending in Ohio, Michigan, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont. Generally, the states seek economic impact damages for alleged harm to natural resources, punitive damages, and present and future costs to cleanup contamination from certain PFAS compounds and to abate the alleged nuisance.

DuPont is a named party in the New Jersey suit related to its site in Parlin, New Jersey. In addition, the New Jersey Attorney General and New Jersey State Department of Environmental Protection filed two directives, one of which names DuPont. The directives seek information on the historical and current use of PFAS. DuPont is also a named party to the Vermont suit and the Michigan suit. The amended complaints in the New Jersey and Vermont cases and the complaint filed by Michigan include additional causes of action based on allegations that the transfer by Historical EID of certain PFAS liabilities to Chemours prior to spinning off Chemours resulted in a fraudulent conveyance or voidable transaction.

Several lawsuits have been filed by residents and local water districts against Historical EID and Chemours in New York, and West Virginia, including a putative class action, alleging exposure to PFOA from third-party defendant manufacturing operations and seeking compensatory, consequential and punitive damages, medical monitoring and attorneys’ fees, expenses and interest.

Other PFAS Actions
There are several actions pending in federal court against Historical EID and Chemours, relating to discharges of PFCs, including GenX, into the Cape Fear River. GenX is a polymerization processing aid and a replacement for PFOA introduced by Historical EID which Chemours continues to manufacture at its Fayetteville Works facility in Bladen County, North Carolina. One of these actions is a consolidated putative class action that asserts claims for damages and other relief on behalf of putative classes of property owners and residents in areas near or who draw drinking water from the Cape Fear River. Another action is a consolidated action brought by various North Carolina water authorities, including the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority and Brunswick County, that seek actual and punitive damages as well as injunctive relief. In addition, an action is pending in North Carolina state court on behalf of about 100 plaintiffs who own wells and property near the Fayetteville Works facility. The plaintiffs seek damages for nuisance allegedly caused by releases of certain PFCs from the site.

Aqueous Film Forming Foam
Beginning in April 2019, several dozen lawsuits involving water contamination arising from the use of PFAS-containing aqueous firefighting foams (“AFFF”) were filed against Historical EID, Chemours, 3M and other AFFF manufacturers and in different parts of the country. Most were consolidated in multi-district litigation docket in federal district court in South Carolina (the “SC MDL”). Many of those cases also name DuPont as a defendant. Those actions largely seek remediation of the alleged PFAS contamination in and around military bases and airports as well as medical monitoring of affected residents.

As of the end of June 2020, approximately 640 personal injury cases have been filed directly in the SC MDL and assert claims on behalf of individual firefighters and others who allege that exposure to PFAS in firefighting foam caused them to develop cancer, including kidney and testicular cancer. DuPont has been named as a defendant in most of these personal injury AFFF cases. DuPont is seeking the dismissal of DowDuPont and DuPont from these actions. Historical EID and the Company have never made or sold aqueous film forming foam, PFOS or PFOS containing products.

Additionally, a case filed by a former firefighter is pending in the Southern District of Ohio seeking certification of a nationwide class of individuals who have detectable levels of PFAS in their blood serum. The suit was filed against 3M and several other defendants in addition to Chemours and Historical EID. The complaint specifically seeks, among other things, the creation of a “PFAS Science Panel” to study the effects of PFAS, but expressly states that the class does not seek compensatory damages for personal injuries. In February 2020, the court denied the defendants' motion to transfer this case to the SC MDL.

Other Litigation Matters
In addition to the specific matters described above, the Company is party to other claims and lawsuits arising out of the normal course of business with respect to product liability, patent infringement, governmental regulation, contract and commercial litigation, and other actions. Certain of these actions may purport to be class actions and seek damages in very large amounts. It is the opinion of the Company’s management that the possibility is remote that the aggregate of all such other claims and lawsuits will have a material adverse impact on the results of operations, financial condition and cash flows of the Company.

Environmental Matters
Accruals for environmental matters are recorded when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be reasonably estimated based on current law and existing technologies. At June 30, 2020, the Company had accrued obligations of $79 million for probable environmental remediation and restoration costs, inclusive of $37 million retained and assumed following the Distributions and $42 million of indemnified liabilities. These obligations are included in "Accrued and other current liabilities" and "Other noncurrent obligations" in the interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. This is management’s best estimate of the costs for remediation and restoration with respect to environmental matters for which the Company has accrued liabilities, although it is reasonably possible that the ultimate cost with respect to these particular matters could range up to $161 million above the amount accrued at June 30, 2020. Consequently, it is reasonably possible that environmental remediation and restoration costs in excess of amounts accrued could have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. Inherent uncertainties exist in these estimates primarily due to unknown conditions, changing governmental regulations and legal standards regarding liability, and emerging remediation technologies for handling site remediation and restoration. At December 31, 2019, the Company had accrued obligations of $77 million for probable environmental remediation and restoration costs.

Pursuant to the Separation and Distribution Agreement, the Company is required to indemnify certain clean-up responsibilities and associated remediation costs. The accrued environmental obligations of $79 million as of June 30, 2020 includes amount for which the Company indemnifies Dow and Corteva. At June 30, 2020, the Company has indemnified Dow and Corteva $8 million and $34 million, respectively.

Guarantees
Obligations for Equity Affiliates & Others
The Company has directly guaranteed various debt obligations under agreements with third parties related to equity affiliates and customers. At June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had directly guaranteed $176 million and $187 million, respectively, of such obligations. These amounts represent the maximum potential amount of future (undiscounted) payments that the Company could be required to make under the guarantees. The Company would be required to perform on these guarantees in the event of default by the guaranteed party.

The Company assesses the payment/performance risk by assigning default rates based on the duration of the guarantees. These default rates are assigned based on the external credit rating of the counterparty or through internal credit analysis and historical default history for counterparties that do not have published credit ratings. For counterparties without an external rating or available credit history, a cumulative average default rate is used.


31



In certain cases, the Company has recourse to assets held as collateral, as well as personal guarantees from customers. Assuming liquidation, these assets are estimated to cover less than 1 percent of the $17 million of guaranteed obligations of customers. The following table provides a summary of the final expiration year and maximum future payments for each type of guarantee:

1. Existing guarantees for select customers, as part of contractual agreements. The terms of the guarantees are equivalent to the terms of the customer loans that are primarily made to finance customer invoices. At June 30, 2020 all maximum future payments had terms less than a year.
2. Existing guarantees for non-consolidated affiliates' liquidity needs in normal operations.

NOTE 18 - STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
A summary of the Historical Dow and Historical DuPont stock-based compensation plans can be found in Note 21 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. Historical Dow and Historical EID did not merge their equity incentive plans as a result of the Merger. The Historical Dow and Historical EID stock-based compensation plans were assumed by the Company and remained in place with the ability to grant and issue DowDuPont common stock until the Distributions.

Immediately following the Corteva Distribution, DuPont adopted the DuPont Omnibus Incentive Plan ("DuPont OIP") which provides for equity-based and cash incentive awards to certain employees, directors, independent contractors and consultants in the form of stock options, restricted stock units ("RSUs") and performance-based restricted stock units ("PSUs"). Upon adoption of the DuPont OIP, the Historical Dow and Historical EID plans were maintained and rolled into the DuPont OIP as separate subplans. The equity awards under these subplans have the same terms and conditions that were applicable to the awards under the Historical Dow and Historical EID plans immediately prior to the Distributions. Under the DuPont OIP, a maximum of 10 million shares of common stock are available for award as of June 30, 2020.

During the second quarter of 2020, the stockholders of DuPont approved the DuPont 2020 Equity and Incentive Plan (the "2020 Plan"). The 2020 Plan limits the number of shares that may be subject to awards payable in shares of DuPont common stock to 19 million. The 2020 Plan authorizes the Company to grant options, share appreciation rights, restricted shares, RSUs, share bonuses, other share-based awards, cash awards, each as defined in the 2020 Plan, or any combination of the foregoing. The approval of the 2020 Plan had no effect on the Company’s ability to make future grants under the DuPont OIP in accordance with its terms, and awards that are outstanding under the DuPont OIP remain outstanding in accordance with their terms. There has been no activity under the 2020 Plan to date.
 
DuPont recognized share-based compensation expense in continuing operations of $28 million and $34 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $69 million and $55 million during the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The income tax benefits related to stock-based compensation arrangements were $5 million and $7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $14 million and $12 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

In the first quarter of 2020, the Company granted 1.0 million RSUs, 0.8 million stock options and 0.3 million PSUs. The weighted-average fair values per share associated with the grants were $53.49 per RSU, $8.84 per stock option and $50.23 per PSU. The stock options had a weighted-average exercise price per share of $53.50. There was minimal activity in the second quarter of 2020.

Derivative Instruments
Objectives and Strategies for Holding Derivative Instruments
In the ordinary course of business, the Company enters into contractual arrangements (derivatives) to reduce its exposure to foreign currency, interest rate and commodity price risks. The Company has established a variety of derivative programs to be utilized for financial risk management. These programs reflect varying levels of exposure coverage and time horizons based on an assessment of risk.

36



Derivative programs have procedures and controls and are approved by the Corporate Financial Risk Management Committee, consistent with the Company's financial risk management policies and guidelines. Derivative instruments used are forwards, options, futures and swaps. As of the second quarter of 2020, the Company has not designated any derivatives or non-derivatives as hedging instruments.

The Company's financial risk management procedures also address counterparty credit approval, limits and routine exposure monitoring and reporting. The counterparties to these contractual arrangements are major financial institutions and major commodity exchanges. The Company is exposed to credit loss in the event of nonperformance by these counterparties. The Company utilizes collateral support annex agreements with certain counterparties to limit its exposure to credit losses. The Company anticipates performance by counterparties to these contracts and therefore no material loss is expected. Market and counterparty credit risks associated with these instruments are regularly reported to management.

The notional amounts of the Company's derivative instruments were as follows:

Derivatives not Designated in Hedging Relationships
Foreign Currency Contracts
The Company routinely uses forward exchange contracts to reduce its net exposure, by currency, related to foreign currency-denominated monetary assets and liabilities of its operations so that exchange gains and losses resulting from exchange rate changes are minimized. The netting of such exposures precludes the use of hedge accounting; however, the required revaluation of the forward contracts and the associated foreign currency-denominated monetary assets and liabilities intends to achieve a minimal earnings impact, after taxes. The Company may use foreign currency exchange contracts to offset a portion of the Company's exposure to certain foreign currency-denominated revenues so that gains and losses on the contracts offset changes in the USD value of the related foreign currency-denominated revenues.

Commodity Contracts
The Company utilizes options, futures and swaps that are not designated as hedging instruments to reduce exposure to commodity price fluctuations on purchases of inventory such as soybeans, soybean oil and soybean meal.

Fair Value of Derivative Instruments
Asset and liability derivatives subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement with the same counterparty are presented on a net basis in the interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The presentation of the Company's derivative assets and liabilities is as follows:

Effect of Derivative Instruments
Foreign currency derivatives not designated as hedges are used to offset foreign exchange gains or losses resulting from the underlying exposures of foreign currency-denominated assets and liabilities. The amount charged on a pre-tax basis related to foreign currency derivatives not designated as a hedge, which was included in “Sundry income (expense) - net” in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations, was insignificant for the three months ended June 30, 2020 ($13 million loss for the three months ended June 30, 2019) and a gain of $4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 ($60 million loss for the six months ended June 30, 2019). The income statement effects of other derivatives were immaterial.

Reclassification from AOCL
The Company does not expect to reclassify gains or losses related to foreign currency contracts from AOCL to income within the next 12 months and there are currently no such amounts included within AOCL.

NOTE 21 - SEGMENTS AND GEOGRAPHIC REGIONS
In the first quarter of 2020, in preparation for the Intended N&B Transaction, DuPont changed its management and reporting structure to realign costs associated with its polysaccharides pre-commercial activities from the Non-Core segment to the N&B segment. The reporting changes have been retrospectively reflected in the segment results for all periods presented.

Prior to April 1, 2019, the Company's measure of profit / loss for segment reporting purposes is pro forma Operating EBITDA as this is the manner in which the Company's chief operating decision maker ("CODM") assessed performance and allocates resources. The Company defines pro forma Operating EBITDA as pro forma earnings (i.e. pro forma "Income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes") before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-operating pension / other post employment benefits (“OPEB”) / charges, and foreign exchange gains/losses, excluding the impact of costs historically allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the criteria to be recorded as discontinued operations and adjusted for significant items. Effective April 1, 2019, the Company's measure of profit/loss for segment reporting purposes is Operating EBITDA as this is the manner in which the Company's chief operating decision maker ("CODM") assesses performance and allocates resources. The Company defines Operating EBITDA as earnings (i.e., “Income from continuing operations before income taxes") before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-operating pension / OPEB benefits / charges, and foreign exchange gains / losses, adjusted for significant items. Reconciliations of these measures are provided on the following pages.

Pro forma adjustments were determined in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X. Pro forma financial information is based on the Consolidated Financial Statements of DuPont, adjusted to give effect to the impact of certain items directly attributable to the Distributions, and the Term Loan Facilities, the 2018 Senior Notes and the Funding CP Issuance (together, the "Financings"), including the use of proceeds from such Financings (collectively the "Transactions"). The historical consolidated financial information has been adjusted to give effect to pro forma events that are (1) directly attributable to the Transactions, (2) factually supportable and (3) with respect to the statements of operations, expected to have a continuing impact on the results. Events that are not expected to have a continuing impact on the combined results are excluded from the pro forma adjustments. Those pro forma adjustments include the impact of various supply agreements entered into in connection with the Dow Distribution ("supply agreements") and are adjustments to "Cost of sales." Pro forma Operating EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2019 has been adjusted to reflect the supply agreements if they had been effective January 1, 2018 as they are included in the measure of

39



profit/loss reviewed by the CODM in order to show meaningful comparability among periods while assessing performance and making resource allocation decisions. There were no pro forma adjustments for the three or six months ended June 30, 2020 and the three months ended June 30, 2019.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Effective August 31, 2017, pursuant to the merger of equals transactions contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 11, 2015, as amended on March 31, 2017 ("Merger Agreement"), The Dow Chemical Company ("Historical Dow") and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company ("Historical EID") each merged with subsidiaries of DowDuPont Inc. ("DowDuPont") and, as a result, Historical Dow and Historical EID became subsidiaries of DowDuPont (the "Merger"). Prior to the Merger, DowDuPont did not conduct any business activities other than those required for its formation and matters contemplated by the Merger Agreement. Historical Dow was determined to be the accounting acquirer in the Merger.

DowDuPont completed a series of internal reorganizations and realignment steps in order to separate into three, independent, publicly traded companies - one for each of its agriculture, materials science and specialty products businesses. DowDuPont formed two wholly owned subsidiaries: Dow Inc. ("Dow", formerly known as Dow Holdings Inc.), to serve as a holding company for its materials science business, and Corteva, Inc. ("Corteva"), to serve as a holding company for its agriculture business.

Effective as of 5:00 p.m. on April 1, 2019, DowDuPont completed the separation of its materials science business into a separate and independent public company by way of a distribution of Dow through a pro rata dividend in-kind of all of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Dow’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Dow Common Stock”), to holders of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “DowDuPont common stock”), as of the close of business on March 21, 2019 (the “Dow Distribution”).

Effective as of 12:01 a.m. on June 1, 2019, DuPont de Nemours, Inc. (formerly known as DowDuPont Inc.), completed the separation of its agriculture business into a separate and independent public company by way of a distribution of Corteva through a pro rata dividend in-kind of all of the then-issued and outstanding shares of Corteva’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Corteva Common Stock”), to holders of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share, as of the close of business on May 24, 2019 (the “Corteva Distribution” and, together with the Dow Distribution, the “Distributions”).

Following the Corteva Distribution, the Company holds the specialty products business. On June 1, 2019, DowDuPont changed its registered name from "DowDuPont Inc." to "DuPont de Nemours, Inc." doing business as "DuPont" (the "Company"). Beginning on June 3, 2019, the Company's common stock is traded on the NYSE under the ticker symbol "DD."

The results of operations of DuPont for the 2019 interim periods presented reflect the historical financial results of Dow and Corteva as discontinued operations, as applicable. The cash flows and comprehensive income related to Dow and Corteva have not been segregated and are included in the interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows and interim Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income, respectively, for the applicable period. Unless otherwise indicated, the information in the notes to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements refer only to DuPont's continuing operations and do not include discussion of balances or activity of Dow or Corteva.

The statements of operations and pro forma statements of operations included in this report and as discussed below include costs previously allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the definition of expenses related to discontinued operations in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Codification 205, "Presentation of Financial Statements" ("ASC 205") and thus are reflected in the Company's results of continuing operations. A significant portion of these costs relate to Historical Dow and consist of leveraged services provided through service centers, as well as other corporate overhead costs related to information technology, finance, manufacturing, research & development, sales & marketing, supply chain, human resources, sourcing & logistics, legal and communications, public affairs & government affairs functions. These costs are no longer incurred by the Company following the Distributions.

On December 15, 2019, the Company entered into definitive agreements to separate and combine the Nutrition & Biosciences business segment (the "N&B Business") with International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. ("IFF") in a tax-efficient Reverse Morris Trust transaction, (the "Intended N&B Transaction"). The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2021, subject to approval by IFF shareholders and other customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals and receipt by DuPont of an opinion of tax counsel. The financial results of the N&B Business are included in continuing operations for the periods presented.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
COVID-19
The novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic has resulted in significant economic disruption and continues to adversely impact the broader global economy, including certain of the Company’s customers and suppliers. Given the dynamic nature of this situation, the Company cannot reasonably estimate the impacts of COVID-19 on its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows into the foreseeable future. The ultimate extent of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company is highly uncertain and will depend on future developments, and such effects could exist for an extended period of time even after the pandemic subsides.

During the second quarter of 2020, the Company benefited from COVID-19 related demand in certain markets, principally personal protection, health & wellness and electronics. Although management currently expects strong demand from certain markets to continue into the third quarter of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to continue to adversely impact demand in automotive, aerospace, commercial construction, oil & gas, and select industrial end-markets. In response to this uncertainty, the Company has delayed certain capital investments in select sectors, and has idled production at several manufacturing sites, predominantly production plants in the Transportation & Industrial segment.

In addition, in response to COVID-19 related market disruption and uncertainties, the Company has proactively taken steps to enhance its liquidity position. In April 2020, the Company entered into a $1.0 billion 364-day revolving credit facility (the “$1B Revolving Credit Facility") which replaced its $750 million 364-day revolving credit facility (the “Old 364-Day Revolving Credit Facility”), and completed a public underwritten offering of $2 billion of 2.169 percent fixed rate notes due May 1, 2023 (the “May Debt Offering”). Refer to Liquidity and Capital Resources for more information.

Transportation & Industrial Impairments
In the second quarter of 2020, continued near-term demand weakness in global automotive production resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, along with revised views of recovery based on third party market information, served as a triggering event requiring the Company to perform an impairment analysis of the goodwill associated with its Transportation & Industrial reporting unit as of June 30, 2020. As a result of the analysis performed, the Company recorded pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges related to goodwill of $2,498 million. The charges were recognized in "Goodwill impairment charges" in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations. Refer to Note 11 of the interim Consolidated Financial Statements. In connection with the Transportation & Industrial impairment analysis, the Company also recorded pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges of $21 million related to indefinite-lived intangible assets. The charges were recognized in “Restructuring and asset related charges - net” in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations. Refer to Note 5 of the interim Consolidated Financial Statements.

Dividends
On April 29, 2020, the Company announced that its Board of Directors declared a second quarter dividend of $0.30 per share, paid on June 15, 2020, to shareholders of record on May 29, 2020.

On June 25, 2020, the Company announced that its Board of Directors declared a third quarter dividend of $0.30 per share payable on September 15, 2020, to shareholders of record on July 31, 2020.

The Company reported net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2020 of $4.8 billion, down 12 percent from $5.5 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2019, due to a 10 percent decrease in volume, a 1 percent unfavorable currency impact and a 1 percent decline in portfolio actions. Local price and product mix remained flat. Volume declined across all geographic regions with the exception of Asia Pacific where it increased 1 percent. Volume declined across all segments with the exception of Electronics & Imaging (up 7 percent) and Nutrition & Biosciences (up 1 percent). The most notable volume decreases were in Transportation & Industrial (down 28 percent) and Non-Core (down 22 percent). Currency was down 1 percent compared with the same period last year, driven primarily by Latin American currencies (down 5 percent). Portfolio and other changes contributed 1 percent of the sales decrease which impacted Non-Core (down 9 percent). Local price was flat compared with the same period last year. Local price increased in Latin America (up 3 percent) and in Safety & Construction (up 2 percent) and Non-Core (up 2 percent).

Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $10.0 billion, down 8 percent from $10.9 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2019, due to a 6 percent decrease in volume, a 1 percent unfavorable currency impact and a 1 percent decline in portfolio actions. Local price and product mix remained flat. Volume declined across all geographic regions with the exception of Asia Pacific where it increased 1 percent. Volume declined across all segments with the exception of Electronics & Imaging (up 7 percent) and Nutrition & Biosciences (up 1 percent). The most notable volume decreases were in Transportation & Industrial (down 18 percent) and Non-Core (down 17 percent). Currency was down 1 percent compared with the same period last year, driven primarily by Latin American currencies (down 4 percent) and EMEA currencies (down 2 percent). Portfolio and other changes contributed 1 percent of the sales decrease which impacted Non-Core (down 9 percent). Local price and product mix was flat compared with the same period last year. Local price increased in Latin America (up 3 percent) and in all segments except Transportation & Industrial (down 5 percent) and Electronics & Imaging (flat).

Cost of Sales
Cost of sales was $3.3 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2020, down from $3.5 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2019 primarily due to lower sales volume, cost synergies, and currency impacts offset by approximately $160 million of charges associated with temporarily idling several manufacturing plants to align supply with demand due to COVID-19, mainly in the Transportation & Industrial segment.

Cost of Sales as a percentage of net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was 68 percent compared with 64 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2019, driven mainly by the charges associated with temporary idling several manufacturing plans referenced above.

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, cost of sales was $6.6 billion, down from $7.1 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2019. Cost of sales decreased for the six months ended June 30, 2020 primarily due to lower sales volume, cost synergies, currency impacts, and lower costs previously allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the definition of expenses related to discontinued operations in accordance with ASC 205 and therefore remained as costs of continuing operations for periods prior to the Distributions, offset by approximately $160 million of charges associated with temporarily idling several manufacturing plants to align supply with demand due to COVID-19, mainly in the Transportation & Industrial segment.

Cost of sales as a percentage of net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was 66 percent compared with 65 percent for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Research and Development Expenses ("R&D")
R&D expenses totaled $209 million in the second quarter of 2020, down from $232 million in the second quarter of 2019. R&D as a percentage of net sales was 4 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.

For the first six months of 2020, R&D expenses totaled $445 million, down from $499 million in the first six months of 2019. R&D as a percentage of net sales was 4 percent and 5 percent for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

The decrease for the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared with the same period of the prior year was primarily due to the absence of R&D costs previously allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the definition of expenses related to discontinued operations in accordance with ASC 205 and therefore remained as costs of continuing operations for periods prior to the Distributions.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses ("SG&A")
SG&A expenses were $541 million in the second quarter of 2020, down from $642 million in the second quarter of 2019 primarily due to productivity actions and reduced spending. SG&A as a percentage of net sales was 11 percent and 12 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.


46



For the first six months of 2020, SG&A expenses totaled $1,174 million, down from $1,368 million in the first six months of 2019. SG&A as a percentage of net sales was 12 percent and 13 percent for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

The decrease as compared with the same period of the prior year was primarily due to productivity actions and the absence of SG&A costs previously allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the definition of expenses related to discontinued operations in accordance with ASC 205 and therefore remained as costs of continuing operations for periods prior to the Distributions.

Amortization of Intangibles
Amortization of intangibles was $528 million in the second quarter of 2020, up from $252 million in the second quarter of 2019. In the first six months of 2020, amortization of intangibles was $1,061 million, up from $508 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to the amortization of the Nutrition and Biosciences tradenames that were reclassified to definite-lived intangibles in the fourth quarter of 2019 in connection with the Intended N&B Transaction.

Restructuring and Asset Related Charges - Net
Restructuring and asset related charges - net were $19 million in the second quarter of 2020, down from $137 million in the second quarter of 2019. The activity in the second quarter of 2020 included a $21 million impairment charge related to indefinite-lived intangible assets in the Transportation & Industrial segment, a $15 million charge related to the 2020 Restructuring Program, a $16 million credit related to the 2019 Restructuring Program and a $1 million credit related to the DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program. The charges in the second quarter of 2019 included a $63 million impairment charge related to an equity method investment, a $53 million charge related to the 2019 Restructuring Program and a $21 million charge related to the DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program.

In the first six months of 2020, restructuring and asset related charges - net were $423 million, up from $208 million in the same period last year. The activity for the six months of 2020 included a $270 million impairment charge related to long-lived assets in the Non-Core segment, a $21 million impairment charge related to indefinite-lived intangible assets in the Transportation & Industrial segment, a $126 million charge related to the 2020 Restructuring Program, a $2 million charge related to the 2019 Restructuring Program and a $4 million charge related to the DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program. The charges in the same period of 2019 related to the equity method investment impairment charge and 2019 Restructuring Program, both described above, as well as a $92 million charge related to the Synergy Program.

See Note 5 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

Goodwill Impairment Charges
Goodwill impairment charges were $2,498 million in the second quarter of 2020, up from $1,175 million in the second quarter of 2019. Goodwill impairment charges were $3,031 million in the six months ended June 30, 2020, up from $1,175 million in the same period last year. In the second quarter of 2020, the charges relate to the Transportation and Industrial segment. In the first six months of 2020, the charges relate to the Transportation & Industrial and Non-Core segments. Goodwill impairment charges in the second quarter of 2019 and for the first six months of 2019 relate to the Nutrition & Biosciences and Non-Core segments. See Note 11 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

Integration and Separation Costs
Integration and separation costs, which primarily reflect costs related to the post-Merger integration, activities related to the Distributions, and, during 2020, the Intended N&B Transaction, were $145 million in the second quarter of 2020, down from $347 million in the second quarter of 2019. In the first six months of 2020, integration and separation costs were $342 million, down from $958 million in the same period last year. The decline was primarily related to the timing of the Distributions.

Equity in Earnings of Nonconsolidated Affiliates
The Company's share of the earnings of nonconsolidated affiliates was $103 million in the second quarter of 2020, up from $49 million in the second quarter of 2019. In the first six months of 2020, the Company's share of the earnings of nonconsolidated affiliates was $142 million, up from $89 million in the first six months of 2019. The increases are primarily due to higher HSC Group equity earnings, mainly driven by customer settlements in the second quarter of 2020.

Sundry Income (Expense) - Net
Sundry income (expense) - net includes a variety of income and expense items such as foreign currency exchange gains or losses, interest income, dividends from investments, gains and losses on sales of investments and assets, non-operating pension and other post employment benefit plan credits or costs, and certain litigation matters. Sundry income (expense) - net in the second quarter of 2020 was expense of $14 million compared with expense of $19 million in the second quarter of 2019. The second quarter of 2020 included foreign currency exchange losses of $23 million, partially offset by income related to non-operating pension and

47



other post employment benefits credits of $8 million. The second quarter of 2019 included a $48 million charge reflecting a reduction in gross proceeds from lower withholding taxes related to a prior year legal settlement included in miscellaneous income and foreign currency exchange losses of $17 million, partially offset by income related to non-operating pension and other post employment benefit credits of $18 million, a gain on the sale of assets of $10 million and interest income of $9 million.

In the first six months of 2020, sundry income (expense) - net was income of $197 million compared with income of $65 million in the first six months of 2019. The first six months of 2020 included benefits related to the sale of the Compound Semiconductor Solutions business unit of $197 million, income related to non-operating pension and other post employment benefit credits of $19 million and miscellaneous income of $12 million, partially offset by foreign currency exchange losses of $31 million. The first six months of 2019 included a gain on sale of assets of $63 million, interest income of $49 million and income related to non-operating pension and other post employment benefit plans of $39 million, partially offset by foreign currency exchange losses of $78 million.

Interest Expense
Interest expense was $193 million in the second quarter of 2020, up from $165 million in the second quarter of 2019. The increase primarily relates to incremental financing costs associated with the May Debt Offering and financing costs associated with the Intended N&B transaction.

In the first six months of 2020, interest expense was $376 million, up from $316 million in the same period last year. The increase primarily relates to financing facilities that were drawn after March 31, 2019 for the Company to operate on a stand-alone basis and complete the capital structures of Corteva and Dow in advance of their respective separations, which include the Term Loan Facilities and the DuPont Commercial Paper Program, as well as the factors noted above.

(Benefit from) Provision for Income Taxes on Continuing Operations
The Company's effective tax rate fluctuates based on, among other factors, where income is earned and the level of income relative to tax attribute. The effective tax rate on continuing operations for the second quarter of 2020 was 1.4 percent, compared with an effective tax rate of (16.4) percent for the second quarter of 2019. For the first six months of 2020, the effective tax rate on continuing operations was (0.3) percent, compared with (5.8) percent for the first six months of 2019.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2020 and for the first six months of 2020 was principally the result of a non-tax-deductible goodwill impairment charge impacting the Transportation and Industrial segment in the second quarter and a non-tax-deductible goodwill impairment charge impacting the Non-Core segment in the first quarter. The tax rate in the second quarter of 2019 and for the first six months of 2019 was principally the result of the non-tax-deductible goodwill impairment charges impacting the Nutrition & Biosciences and Non-Core segments. See Note 11 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information on the goodwill impairment charges.

Income from Discontinued Operations, Net of Tax
In the second quarter of 2020 and for the first six months of 2020, the Company did not have income from discontinued operations. In the second quarter of 2019 and for the first six months of 2019, income from discontinued operation, net of tax was $566 million and $1,212 million, respectively. The decrease period over period is attributable to the timing of the Distributions. Refer to Note 3 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

Net Income Attributable to Noncontrolling Interests
Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests was $7 million in the second quarter of 2020, down from $34 million in the second quarter of 2019. For the first six months of 2020, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests was $13 million, down from $85 million for the same period last year. The decreases are attributable to the timing of the Distributions.

SUPPLEMENTAL UNAUDITED PRO FORMA COMBINED FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The following supplemental unaudited pro forma financial information (the “unaudited pro forma financial statements”) is derived from DuPont’s Consolidated Financial Statements, adjusted to give effect to certain events directly attributable to the Distributions. In contemplation of the Distributions and to achieve the respective credit profiles of each of the current companies, in the fourth quarter of 2018, DowDuPont borrowed $12.7 billion under the 2018 Senior Notes and entered the Term Loan Facilities with an aggregate principal amount of $3.0 billion. Additionally, DuPont issued approximately $1.4 billion in commercial paper in May 2019 in anticipation of the Corteva Distribution (the “Funding CP Issuance” together with the 2018 Senior Notes and the Term Loan Facilities, the "Financings"). The unaudited pro forma financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X. The historical consolidated financial information has been adjusted to give effect to pro forma events that are (1) directly attributable to the Distributions and the Financings (collectively the "Transactions"), (2) factually supportable and (3) with respect to the statements of operations, expected to have a continuing impact on the results. The unaudited pro forma statements of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2019 give effect to the pro forma events as if they had been consummated on January 1, 2018. There were no pro forma adjustments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Restructuring or integration activities or other costs following the Distributions that may be incurred to achieve cost or growth synergies of DuPont are not reflected. The unaudited pro forma income statement provides shareholders with summary financial information and historical data that is on a basis consistent with how DuPont reports current financial information.

The unaudited pro forma financial statements are presented for informational purposes only, and do not purport to represent what DuPont's results of operations or financial position would have been had the Transactions occurred on the dates indicated, nor do they purport to project the results of operations or financial position for any future period or as of any future date.

SEGMENT RESULTS
In the first quarter of 2020, in preparation for the Intended N&B Transaction, DuPont changed its management and reporting structure to realign costs associated with its polysaccharides pre-commercial activities from the Non-Core segment to the N&B segment. The reporting changes have been retrospectively reflected in the following discussion of segment results for all periods presented. Refer to Note 21 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

Prior to April 1, 2019, the Company's measure of profit/loss for segment reporting purposes is pro forma Operating EBITDA as this is the manner in which the Company's chief operating decision maker ("CODM") assessed performance and allocates resources. The Company defines pro forma Operating EBITDA as pro forma earnings (i.e., pro forma “Income from continuing operations before income taxes") before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-operating pension / other post employment benefits (“OPEB”) / charges, and foreign exchange gains / losses, excluding the impact of costs historically allocated to the materials science and agriculture businesses that did not meet the criteria to be recorded as discontinued operations and adjusted for significant items. Effective April 1, 2019, the Company's measure of profit/loss for segment reporting purposes is Operating EBITDA as this is the manner in which the Company's CODM assesses performance and allocates resources. The Company defines Operating EBITDA as earnings (i.e., “Income from continuing operations before income taxes") before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-operating pension / OPEB benefits / charges, and foreign exchange gains / losses, adjusted for significant items. Reconciliations of these measures can be found in Note 21 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements. Prior year data has been updated to conform with the current year presentation.

Pro forma adjustments used in the calculation of pro forma Operating EBITDA were determined in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X and were derived from DuPont's historical Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes, adjusted to give effect to the Distributions as if they had been consummated on January 1, 2018. The pro forma adjustments impacting pro forma Operating EBITDA reflect the impact of various supply agreements ("supply agreements") entered into in connection with the Dow Distribution and are outlined in the preceding section, Supplemental Unaudited Pro Forma Combined Financial Information, as adjustments to "Cost of sales." The impact of these supply agreements is reflected in pro forma Operating EBITDA for the periods noted above as it is included in the measure of profit/loss reviewed by the CODM in order to show meaningful comparability among periods while assessing performance and making resource allocation decisions. There were no pro forma adjustments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Non-Core net sales were $308 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, down from $442 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 due to 2 percent pricing gains more than offset by a 22 percent volume decline, a 9 percent portfolio decline, and a 1 percent unfavorable currency impact. The third quarter 2019 sale of the Sustainable Solutions business reduced sales by 9 percent. Volume gains in microcircuit paste materials were more than offset by declines in demand in trichlorosilane, TEDLAR® aircraft films and photovoltaic metallization pastes.
Operating EBITDA was $93 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, down 11 percent compared with $104 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 as a customer settlement gain of $64 million was more than offset by volume declines and the absence of earnings from the Sustainable Solutions business.

Non-Core net sales were $674 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, down from $896 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. Net sales declined due to a 17 percent decline in volume, a 9 percent portfolio decline due to the sale of the Sustainable Solutions business and a 1 percent unfavorable impact from currency, which more than offset a 2 percent increase in local price. Volume declines were driven by declines in demand for trichlorosilane and TEDLAR® aircraft films.

Operating EBITDA was $135 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020, down 33 percent compared with pro forma Operating EBITDA of $202 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 as a customer settlement gain of $64 million was more than offset by volume declines and the absence of earnings from the Sustainable Solutions business.

CHANGES IN FINANCIAL CONDITION
Liquidity & Capital Resources
Information related to the Company's liquidity and capital resources can be found in the Company's 2019 Annual Report, Part II, Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, Liquidity and Capital Resources. Discussion below provides the updates to this information for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

The Company continually reviews its sources of liquidity and debt portfolio and may make adjustments to one or both to ensure adequate liquidity and increase the Company’s optionality and financing efficiency as it relates to financing cost and balancing terms/maturities. The Company’s primary source of incremental liquidity is cash flows from operating activities. COVID-19 continues to adversely impact the broader global economy, including negatively impacting economic growth and creating disruption and volatility in the global financial and capital markets, which could result in increases in the cost of capital and/or adversely impact the availability of and access to capital, which could negatively affect DuPont’s liquidity. Management expects the generation of cash from operations and the ability to access the debt capital markets and other sources of liquidity will continue to provide sufficient liquidity and financial flexibility to meet the Company’s and its subsidiaries obligations as they come due; however, DuPont is unable to predict the extent of COVID-19 related impacts which depends on highly uncertain and unpredictable future developments, including the duration and spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, and the speed and extent of the resumption of normal economic and operating conditions. In light of this uncertainty, the Company has taken steps to further ensure liquidity and capital resources, as discussed below.
In millionsJune 30, 2020December 31, 2019
Cash and cash equivalents$3,737
$1,540
Total debt$19,167
$17,447

The Company's cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were $3.7 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively, of which $1.4 billion at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were held by subsidiaries in foreign countries, including United States territories. For each of its foreign subsidiaries, the Company makes an assertion regarding the amount of earnings intended for permanent reinvestment, with the balance available to be repatriated to the United States. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was primarily due to receipt of proceeds from the May Debt Offering, discussed further below.

Total debt at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $19.2 billion and $17.4 billion, respectively. The increase was primarily due to the May Debt Offering.

Term Loan and Revolving Credit Facilities
In November 2018, the Company entered into a term loan agreement that establishes two term loan facilities in the aggregate principal amount of $3 billion, (the “Term Loan Facilities”) as well as a five-year $3 billion revolving credit facility (the “Five-Year Revolving Credit Facility”). Effective May 2, 2019, the Company fully drew the two Term Loan Facilities in the aggregate principal amount of $3.0 billion and the Five-Year Revolving Credit Facility became effective and available. The Five-Year Revolving Credit Facility is generally expected to remain undrawn, and serve as a backstop to the Company’s commercial paper and letter of credit issuance. In June 2019, the Company entered into a 364-day $750 million revolving credit facility (the “Old 364-Day Revolving Credit Facility”).

In April 2020, the Company entered into a $1.0 billion 364-day revolving credit facility (the “$1B Revolving Credit Facility"). The $1B Revolving Credit Facility replaced the Old 364-Day Revolving Credit Facility, improving the Company’s liquidity position in response to near term uncertainties. As of the effectiveness of the $1B Revolving Credit Facility, the Old 364-Day Revolving Credit Facility was terminated. The $1B Revolving Credit facility may be used for general corporate purposes.

Debt Offering
On May 1, 2020, the Company completed an underwritten public offering of senior unsecured notes (the “Notes”) in the aggregate principal amount of $2 billion of 2.169 percent fixed rate Notes due May 1, 2023 (the “May Debt Offering”). The proceeds from the May Debt Offering are expected to be used by the Company to repay or redeem the Company’s $0.5 billion in floating rate notes due November 2020 and $1.5 billion of 3.77 percent fixed-rate notes due November 2020 (collectively, the “2020 Notes”). Upon consummation of the Intended N&B Transaction, the Company will be required to mail a notice of redemption to holders of the Notes, with a copy to the Trustee, setting forth the date of redemption of all of the Notes on the date (“Special Mandatory Redemption Date”) that is the later of (i) three (3) Business Days after the consummation of the Intended N&B Transaction and (ii) May 1, 2021. On the Special Mandatory Redemption Date, the Company will be required to redeem all of the Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, up to but excluding the Special Mandatory Redemption Date. In the event a special mandatory redemption is triggered, the Company expects to fund the redemption with proceeds from the Special Cash Payment.

56



Commercial Paper
In April 2019, DuPont authorized a $3 billion commercial paper program (the “DuPont Commercial Paper Program”). At June 30, 2020, the Company had issued $1.6 billion of commercial paper ($1.8 billion at December 31, 2019).

Nutrition & Biosciences Financing    
In connection with the Intended N&B Transaction, N&B Inc. entered into a Bridge Commitment Letter in an aggregate principal amount of $7.5 billion, (the “Bridge Loans”) to secure committed financing for the Special Cash Payment and related financing fees and expenses. The aggregate commitment under the Bridge Letter is reduced by, among other things, (1) the amount of net cash proceeds received by N&B Inc. from any issuance of senior unsecured notes pursuant to a Rule 144A offering or other private placement, (the "N&B Notes Offering") and (2) certain qualifying term loan commitments under senior unsecured term loan facilities.
In January 2020, N&B Inc. entered into a senior unsecured term loan agreement in the amount of $1.25 billion split evenly between three- and five-year facilities. As a result of entry into the term loan agreement, the commitments under the Bridge Commitment Letter were reduced to $6.25 billion. The remaining $6.25 billion is expected to be funded through the N&B Notes Offering and/or the Bridge Loans. The proceeds from drawdowns on the term loan facilities and the N&B Notes Offering, if any, and/or the Bridge Loans would be used to make the Special Cash Payment and to pay the related financing fees and expenses. The commitments under the Bridge Commitment Letter and the availability of funding under the term loan agreement are subject to customary closing conditions including among others, the satisfaction of substantially all the conditions to the consummation of the intended transaction with IFF.
Borrowing under the term loan agreement and, if any, under the Bridge Loans would occur immediately prior to the closing of the Intended N&B Transaction. Any issuance of the N&B Note Offering for some or all the remaining $6.25 billion would likely occur in the second half of 2020.
 
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the fees and expenses associated with the financing, including fees associated with any prepayment will be borne (A) entirely by N&B Inc. if the transaction closes; and (B) equally by DuPont and IFF if the Merger Agreement terminates. However, if the Merger Agreement is terminated by IFF, in accordance with its terms, for breach by DuPont, such fees and expenses will be borne entirely by DuPont; and if terminated by DuPont in accordance with its terms for breach by IFF, such fees and expenses will be borne entirely by IFF.

Credit Ratings
The Company's credit ratings impact its access to the debt capital markets and cost of capital. The Company remains committed to a strong financial position and strong investment-grade rating. At July 29, 2020, DuPont's credit ratings were as follows:
Credit RatingsLong-Term RatingShort-Term RatingOutlook
Standard & Poor’sBBB+A-2Negative Watch
Moody’s Investors ServiceBaa1P-2Stable
Fitch RatingsBBB+F-2Stable

The Company's indenture covenants related to its 2018 Senior Notes and May Debt Offering contains certain limitations on the Company’s ability to incur liens and enter into sale lease-back transactions, mergers and consolidations as well as customary events of default. The Term Loan Facilities, the Five-Year Revolving Credit Facility and the $1B Revolving Credit Facility contain a financial covenant, typical for companies with similar credit ratings, requiring that the ratio of Total Indebtedness to Total Capitalization for the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries not exceed 0.60. At June 30, 2020, the Company was in compliance with this financial covenant.

Summary of Cash Flows
The Company’s cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities, as reflected in the interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, are summarized in the following table. The cash flows related to Dow and Corteva have not been segregated and are included in the interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Cash Flows from Operating Activities
In the first six months of 2020, cash provided by operating activities was $1,520 million, compared with cash used for operating activities of $51 million in the same period last year. The increase in cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to a decrease in cash used for working capital, offset by the impact of the Dow and Corteva Distributions to period earnings.

Cash Flows from Investing Activities
In the first six months of 2020, cash used for investing activities was $348 million, compared with $1,657 million in the first six months of 2019. The decrease in cash used was primarily attributable to lower capital expenditures and an increase in proceeds from sales of property and businesses. The first six months of 2019 also contains activity related to the materials science and agriculture businesses prior to the Distributions.

Cash Flows from Financing Activities
In the first six months of 2020, cash provided by financing activities was $1,050 million compared with cash used for financing activities of $10,661 million in the same period last year. The primary driver of the decrease in cash used was a reduction in cash payments related to the Distributions of Dow and Corteva, a reduction in payments on long-term debt, and a reduction in share repurchase of common stock, partially offset by decreased issuances of short-term notes payable and lower proceeds from issuance of long-term debt. The first six months of 2019 also contains activity related to the materials science and agriculture businesses prior to the Distributions.

Dividends
On February 12, 2020, the Board of Directors declared a first quarter dividend of $0.30 per share, paid on March 16, 2020, to shareholders of record on February 28, 2020.

On April 29, 2020, the Company announced that its Board declared a second quarter dividend of $0.30 per share, paid on June 15, 2020, to shareholders of record on May 29, 2020.

On June 25, 2020, the Company announced that its Board declared a third quarter dividend of $0.30 per share payable on September 15, 2020, to shareholders of record on July 31, 2020.

Share Buyback Programs
On June 1, 2019, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a new $2 billion share buyback program, which expires on June 1, 2021. During the second quarter, the Company did not repurchase any shares. As of June 30, 2020, the Company repurchased 16.9 million shares under this program since inception at a total cost of $982 million. See Part II, Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds, for additional information.

Pension and Other Post Employment Plans
DuPont expects to make additional contributions in the aggregate of approximately $45 million by year-end 2020 to certain non-US pension and other post employment benefit plans. Any such contribution could be funded by existing cash balances and/or cash from other available sources of liquidity.

58



Restructuring
In March 2020, the Company approved restructuring actions designed to capture near-term cost reductions following the expected closure of the Intended N&B Transaction (the "2020 Restructuring Program"). As a result of these actions, the Company recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $126 million inception-to-date, consisting of severance and related benefit costs of $102 million and asset related charges of $24 million. The Company expects actions related to this program to be substantially complete by the end of 2020. Future cash payments related to the 2020 Restructuring Program are anticipated to be $81 million primarily related to the payment of severance and related benefits.

In June 2019, DuPont approved restructuring actions to simplify and optimize certain organizational structures following the completion of the Distributions (the "2019 Restructuring Program"). As a result of these actions, the Company has recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $140 million inception-to-date, consisting of severance and related benefit costs of $106 million and asset related charges of $34 million. Actions associated with the 2019 Restructuring Program are considered substantially complete. Future cash payments related to the 2019 Restructuring Program are anticipated to be $42 million, primarily related to the payment of severance and related benefits.

In September and November 2017, the Company approved post-merger restructuring actions under the DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program, adopted by the DowDuPont Board of Directors. The DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program was designed to integrate and optimize the organization following the Merger and in preparation for the Distributions whereby the Company has recorded pre-tax restructuring charges attributable to the continuing operations of DuPont of $489 million inception-to-date, consisting of severance and related benefit costs of $213 million, asset related charges of $209 million and contract termination charges of $67 million. The activities related to the DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program are expected to result in additional cash expenditures of $41 million consisting of severance and related benefit costs and contract terminations. Actions associated with the DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program, including employee separations, are considered substantially complete (see Note 5 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements).

Off-balance Sheet Arrangements
Guarantees arise in the ordinary course of business from relationships with customers and nonconsolidated affiliates when the Company undertakes an obligation to guarantee the performance of others if specific triggering events occur. At June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the Company had directly guaranteed $176 million and $187 million, respectively, of such obligations. Additional information related to the guarantees of the Subsidiaries can be found in the “Guarantees” section of Note 13 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements.


Contractual Obligations
Information related to the Company's contractual obligations at December 31, 2019 can be found in the Company's 2019 Annual Report, Part II, Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, Contractual Obligations. The Company completed the May Debt Offering during the second quarter of 2020.  Refer to Liquidity & Capital Resources for more information. There were no other material changes to the Company's contractual obligations during the second quarter of 2020.

OTHER MATTERS
Recent Accounting Guidance
See Note 2 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for a description of recent accounting guidance.

Critical Accounting Estimates
The preparation of financial statements and related disclosures in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) requires management to make judgments, assumptions and estimates that affect the amounts reported in the interim Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes. Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (“2019 Annual Report”) describes the significant accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of the Consolidated Financial Statements. DuPont’s accounting policies that are impacted by judgments, assumptions and estimates are described in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in the Company’s 2019 Annual Report. Since December 31, 2019, there have been no material changes in the Company’s accounting policies that are impacted by judgments, assumptions and estimates. See the discussion in this section for information regarding the valuation of assets and impairment considerations.

Valuation of Assets and Impairment Considerations
The Company tests goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment annually during the fourth quarter as of October 1, or more frequently when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the fair value is below its carrying value. Goodwill is evaluated for impairment using qualitative and/or quantitative testing procedures. The Company performs goodwill impairment testing at the reporting unit level which is defined as the operating segment or one level below the operating segment. One level below the operating segment, or component, is a business in which discrete financial information is available and regularly reviewed by segment management. The Company aggregates certain components into reporting units based on economic similarities.

As a result of the related acquisition method of accounting in connection with the Merger, Historical EID’s assets and liabilities were measured at fair value resulting in increases to the Company’s goodwill and other intangible assets. The fair value valuation increased the risk that declines in financial projections, including changes to key assumptions, could have a material, negative impact on the fair value of the Company’s reporting units and assets, and therefore could result in an impairment.

COVID-19 continues to adversely impact the broader global economy and has caused significant volatility in financial markets. If there is a of lack of recovery, the time period to recovery is longer than expected or further global softening is experienced in certain markets, such as automotive, aerospace, commercial construction, oil & gas and select industrial end-markets, or a sustained decline in the value of the Company's common stock, the Company may be required to perform additional impairment assessments for its goodwill, other intangibles, and long-lived assets, the results of which could result in material impairment charges.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
See Note 19 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements. See also Part II, Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk, of the Company's 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K for information on the Company's utilization of financial instruments and an analysis of the sensitivity of these instruments.


ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The Company maintains a system of disclosure controls and procedures to give reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the Company's reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. These controls and procedures also give reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in such reports is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

As of June 30, 2020, the Company's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), together with management, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act. Based on that evaluation, the CEO and CFO concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures are effective.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
There were no changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 that was conducted during the last fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

In connection with the Distributions, there were several processes, policies, operations, technologies and information systems that were integrated following the Merger which have been replicated, transferred or separated. During the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company continued to take steps to ensure that adequate controls were designed and maintained, including planning for separation activities related to the Intended N&B Transaction.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION


ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
The Company and its subsidiaries are subject to various litigation matters, including, but not limited to, product liability, patent infringement, antitrust claims, and claims for third party property damage or personal injury stemming from alleged environmental torts. Information regarding certain of these matters is set forth below and in Note 13 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements.

Litigation
See Note 13 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements.

Environmental Proceedings
The Company believes it is remote that the following matters will have a material impact on its financial position, liquidity or results of operations. The description is included per Regulation S-K, Item 103(5)(c) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Divested Neoprene Facility, La Place, Louisiana - EPA Compliance Inspection
In 2016, the EPA conducted a focused compliance investigation at the Denka Performance Elastomer LLC (“Denka”) neoprene manufacturing facility in La Place, Louisiana. Historical EID sold the neoprene business, including this manufacturing facility, to Denka in the fourth quarter of 2015. Subsequent to this inspection, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”), the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (“DEQ”), the Company (originally through Historical EID), and Denka began discussions in the spring of 2017 relating to the inspection conclusions and allegations of noncompliance arising under the Clean Air Act, including leak detection and repair. DuPont, Denka, EPA, DOJ and DEQ are continuing these discussions, which include potential settlement options.

New Jersey Directive PFAS
On March 25, 2019, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“NJDEP”) issued a Directive and Notice to Insurers to a number of companies, including Chemours, DowDuPont, Historical EID, and certain DuPont subsidiaries. NJDEP’s allegations relate to former operations of Historical EID involving poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances, (“PFAS”), including PFOA and PFOA- replacement products. The NJDEP seeks past and future costs of investigating, monitoring, testing, treating, and remediating New Jersey’s drinking water and waste systems, private drinking water wells and natural resources including groundwater, surface water, soil, sediments and biota. The Directive seeks certain information as to future costs and information related to the historic uses of PFAS and replacement chemicals including “information ranging from use and discharge of the chemicals through wastewater treatment plants, air emissions, and sales of products containing the chemicals to current development, manufacture, use and release of newer chemicals in the state.”



62



ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
Other than the risk factor set forth below, there have been no material changes in the Company's risk factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A, Risk Factors, in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.

The extent to which the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and measures taken in response to it, impact DuPont’s business, results of operations, access to sources of liquidity and financial condition depends on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted.
DuPont is actively monitoring the global impacts of COVID-19, including the impacts from responsive measures, and remains focused on its top priorities - the safety and health of its employees and the needs of its customers. The company’s business and financial condition, and the business and financial condition of the company’s customers and suppliers, have been impacted by the significantly increased economic and demand uncertainties created by the COVID-19 outbreak. In addition, public and private sector responsive measures, such as the imposition of travel restrictions, quarantines, adoption of remote working, and suspension of non-essential business and government services, have impacted the company’s business and financial condition. Many of DuPont’s facilities and employees are based in areas impacted by the virus. While most DuPont manufacturing sites remain in operation, DuPont has reduced or furloughed certain operations in response to government measures, employee welfare concerns and the impact of COVID-19 on the global demand and supply chain. DuPont’s manufacturing operations may be further adversely affected by impacts from COVID-19 including, among other things, additional government actions and other responsive measures, more and /or deeper supply chain disruptions, quarantines and health and availability of essential onsite personnel. Furthermore, COVID-19 continues to adversely impact the broader global economy, including negatively impacting economic growth and creating disruption and volatility in the global financial and capital markets, which could result in increases in the cost of capital and/or adversely impact the availability of and access to capital, which could negatively affect DuPont’s liquidity. DuPont is unable to predict the extent of COVID-19 related impacts on its business, results of operations, access to sources of liquidity and financial condition which depends on highly uncertain and unpredictable future developments, including, but not limited to, the duration and spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, its severity, the actions to contain the virus or treat its impact, and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions resume. DuPont’s financial results may be materially and adversely impacted by a variety of factors that have not yet been determined, including potential impairments of goodwill and other assets. DuPont is taking actions, including reducing costs, restructuring actions, and delaying certain capital expenditures and non-essential spend. In addition, the company may consider further reductions in or furloughing additional operations in response to further and/or deeper declines in demand and/or or supply chain disruptions. There can be no guaranty that such actions will significantly mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the company’s business, results of operations, access to sources of liquidity or financial condition. After the COVID-19 outbreak has subsided, DuPont may experience materially adverse impacts to its business, results of operations and financial condition as a result of related global economic impacts, including any recession that has occurred or may occur in the future.

ITEM 4. MINE SAFETY DISCLOSURES
Not applicable.


ITEM 5. OTHER INFORMATION
In anticipation of and to facilitate the intended transaction with IFF, DuPont is planning for the internal separation of the N&B Business, both domestically and internationally, through a series of transactions that are intended to be tax-efficient from both a United States and foreign perspective (collectively, the "N&B Internal Separations"). See Part I, Item 1 and Part II, Item 1A of this report for more information regarding the intended transaction. The N&B Internal Separations are currently expected to consist of internal transactions undertaken by DuPont and its subsidiaries to separate ownership of the N&B Business from ownership of their other businesses, including a number of distributions intended to qualify as tax-free spinoffs for United States tax purposes under Section 355 of the Internal Revenue Code. The N&B Internal Separations are expected to occur in the United States and in the Netherlands. Following the completion of the N&B Internal Separations, DuPont expects that DuPont will effectuate the separation, pending DuPont Board approval, in a distribution intended to qualify as a tax-free spinoff for United States tax purposes under Section 355 of the Internal Revenue Code. The DuPont subsidiaries, or their successors, that are included in the current plans for the N&B Internal Separations as distributing corporations in the N&B Internal Separations (each in one or more tax-free spinoffs for United States tax purposes under Section 355 of the Internal Revenue Code) are the following: Specialty Electronic Materials Netherlands B.V.; DuPont Services Company B.V.; Performance Specialty Products NA, LLC; DuPont Polymers, Inc.; and DuPont US Holding, LLC.
