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."

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) ability to achieve expectations regarding the timing, completion, integration, and accounting and tax treatments related to the proposed Laird PM Acquisition; (ii) the ability to achieve expected benefits, synergies and operating efficiencies in connection with the proposed Laird PM Acquisition within the expected time frames or at all or to successfully integrate the Laird Performance Materials business; (iii) ability to achieve anticipated tax treatments in connection with the N&B Transaction or the DWDP Distributions; (iv) changes in relevant tax and other laws; (v) indemnification of certain legacy liabilities of EID in connection with the Corteva Distribution; (vi) risks and costs related to the performance under and impact of the cost sharing arrangement by and between DuPont, Corteva, and The Chemours Company related to future eligible PFAS costs; (vii) 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; (viii) uncertainty as to the long-term value of DuPont common stock; (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; each as further discussed in detail in and results of operations as discussed in DuPont's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended
4


December 31, 2020 and its subsequent reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K. 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 or supply chain 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.

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, 2020, collectively referred to as the “2020 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.

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 ("TDCC") and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company ("EID") each merged with subsidiaries of DowDuPont Inc. ("DowDuPont") and, as a result, TDCC and EID became subsidiaries of DowDuPont (the "DWDP Merger"). Except as otherwise indicated by the context, the term "TDCC" includes TDCC and its consolidated subsidiaries and "EID" includes EID and its consolidated subsidiaries.

On April 1, 2019, the Company completed the separation of the materials science business through the spin-off of Dow Inc., (“Dow”) including Dow’s subsidiary TDCC (the “Dow Distribution”). On June 1, 2019, the Company completed the separation of the agriculture business through the spin-off of Corteva, Inc. (“Corteva”) including Corteva’s subsidiary EID, (the “Corteva Distribution" and together with the Dow Distribution, the “DWDP Distributions”).

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

N&B Transaction
On February 1, 2021, DuPont completed the separation and distribution of the Nutrition & Biosciences business segment (the "N&B Business"), and merger of Nutrition & Biosciences, Inc. (“N&B”), a DuPont subsidiary formed to hold the N&B Business, with a subsidiary of International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. ("IFF"). The distribution was effected through an exchange offer (the “Exchange Offer”) and the consummation of the Exchange Offer was followed by the merger of N&B with a wholly owned subsidiary of IFF, with N&B surviving the merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of IFF (the “N&B Merger” and, together with the Exchange Offer, the “N&B Transaction”). See Note 2 for more information.

The financial position of DuPont as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 and the results of operations of DuPont for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 present the historical financial results of N&B as discontinued operations. The cash flows and comprehensive income related to N&B have not been segregated and are included in the interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows and interim Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income, respectively, for all periods presented. 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 N&B.

2021 Segment Realignment
Immediately following the separation and distribution of the N&B Business, the Company made changes to its management and reporting structure (the “2021 Segment Realignment”) (see Note 22 for additional details). The reporting changes have been retrospectively reflected for all periods presented.

NOTE 2 - ACQUISITIONS AND DIVESTITURES
Laird Performance Materials
On March 8, 2021, the Company announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement with Advent International to acquire Laird Performance Materials for $2.3 billion. The acquisition is expected to close in the third quarter of 2021, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, and will be part of the Electronic & Industrials segment. The Company intends to pay for the acquisition from existing cash balances.

N&B Transaction
On February 1, 2021, DuPont completed the separation and distribution of the N&B Business, and merger of N&B, a DuPont subsidiary formed to hold the N&B Business, with a subsidiary of IFF. The distribution was effected through an exchange offer where, on the terms and subject to the conditions of the Exchange Offer, eligible participating DuPont stockholders had the option to tender all, some or none of their shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of DuPont (the “DuPont Common Stock”) for a number of shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of N&B (the “N&B Common Stock”) and which resulted in all shares of N&B Common Stock being distributed to DuPont stockholders that participated in the Exchange Offer. The consummation of the Exchange Offer was followed by the merger of N&B with a wholly owned subsidiary of IFF, with N&B surviving the merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of IFF (the “N&B Merger” and, together with the Exchange Offer, the “N&B Transaction”). The N&B Transaction was subject to IFF shareholder approval, customary regulatory approvals, tax authority rulings including a favorable private letter ruling from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service which confirms the N&B Transaction to be free of U.S. federal income tax, and expiration of the public exchange offer. DuPont does not have an ownership interest in IFF as a result of the N&B Transaction.

In the Exchange Offer, DuPont accepted approximately 197.4 million shares of its common stock in exchange for about 141.7 million shares of N&B Common Stock as of the date of the N&B Transaction. As a result, DuPont reduced its common stock outstanding by 197.4 million shares of DuPont Common Stock. In the N&B Merger, each share of N&B Common Stock was automatically converted into the right to receive one share of IFF common stock, par value $0.125 per share, based on the terms of the N&B Merger Agreement.

The results of operations of N&B are presented as discontinued operations as summarized below:

In connection with the N&B Transaction and in accordance with the terms of the N&B Transaction Agreements, defined below, prior to consummation of the Exchange Offer and the N&B Merger, DuPont received a one-time cash payment of approximately $7.3 billion, (the "Special Cash Payment"), which is subject to post-closing adjustment pursuant to the terms of the N&B Separation and Distribution Agreement. The special cash payment was partially funded by an offering of $6.25 billion of senior unsecured notes (the “N&B Notes Offering”). The net proceeds of approximately $6.2 billion from the N&B Notes Offering were deposited into an escrow account and at December 31, 2020, are reflected as restricted cash in the Company’s interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. In order to fund the remainder of the Special Cash Payment, on February 1, 2021, N&B borrowed $1.25 billion under a senior unsecured term loan agreement (the "N&B Term Loan"). The obligations and liabilities associated with the N&B Notes Offering and the N&B Term Loan were separated from the Company on February 1, 2021 upon consummation of the N&B Transaction. The obligations and liabilities of $6.2 billion associated with the N&B Notes Offering are classified as "Liabilities of discontinued operations" in the Company's interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

The Company recognized a non-taxable gain of approximately $4,954 million on the N&B Transaction. The gain is recorded in "Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax" in the Company's interim Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

N&B Transaction Agreements
In connection with the N&B Transaction, effective December 15, 2019, the Company, as previously discussed, entered into the following agreements:

A Separation and Distribution Agreement, subsequently amended and joined by Neptune Merger Sub II Inc., a subsidiary of IFF on January 22, 2021, and as amended further on February 1, 2021 (as amended, the “N&B Separation and Distribution Agreement”) with N&B and IFF, which, among other things, governs the separation of the N&B Business from DuPont and certain other post-closing obligations between DuPont and N&B related thereto;

All licenses under the IP Cross-License Agreement are non-exclusive, worldwide, and royalty-free; and

DuPont, N&B and IFF entered into a Tax Matters Agreement (the “N&B Tax Matters Agreement”), which governs the parties’ rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to tax liabilities and benefits, tax attributes, the preparation and filing of tax returns, the control of audits and other tax proceedings, the preservation of the expected tax-free status of the transactions contemplated by the N&B Separation and Distribution Agreement, and other matters regarding taxes. See Note 6 for additional information on the N&B Tax Matters Agreement.

Assets Held for Sale
In October 2020, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Biomaterials business unit, which includes the Company's equity method investment in DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. In January 2021, the Company entered into separate definitive agreements to sell its Clean Technologies and Solamet® businesses. These divestitures, subject to regulatory approval and customary closing conditions, are expected to close in the second half of 2021 and generate in aggregate pre-tax cash proceeds of about $920 million. The Company also signed a non-binding letter of intent to sell Chestnut Run labs, a portion of the Company's Chestnut Run campus. This transaction is expected to close within one year.

The assets and liabilities associated with the Biomaterials and Clean Technologies businesses met the held for sale criteria at December 31, 2020, and the assets and liabilities associated with the Solamet® business and Chestnut Run labs met the held for sale criteria at March 31, 2021. The Biomaterials, Clean Technologies and Solamet® businesses are reported in Corporate.

The following table summarizes the carrying value of the major assets and liabilities of the Biomaterials, Clean Technologies, and Solamet® business units and Chestnut Run labs as of March 31, 2021 (collectively, the “Held for Sale Disposal Group”) and the Biomaterials and Clean Technologies business units as of December 31, 2020:

NOTE 3 - 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.

On February 1, 2021, the Company realigned and renamed certain businesses as part of the 2021 Segment Realignment resulting in changes to its management and reporting structure (see Note 22 for additional details). In conjunction with the 2021 Segment Realignment, DuPont made the following changes to its major product lines:
Within Electronics & Industrial (formerly known as Electronics & Imaging) realigned product lines to include businesses formerly in Transportation & Industrial and renamed the Image Solutions product lines as Industrial Solutions;
Renamed Safety & Construction as Water & Protection;
Realigned certain businesses from the former Non-Core segment and renamed product lines within Mobility & Materials (formerly known as Transportation & Industrial) as Advanced Solutions, Engineering Polymers, and Performance Resins.

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 receivables 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 three months of 2021 from amounts included in contract liabilities at the beginning of the period and the amount of contract assets reclassified to receivables as a result of the right to the transaction consideration becoming unconditional were insignificant. The Company did not recognize any asset impairment charges related to contract assets during the period.

NOTE 4 - RESTRUCTURING AND ASSET RELATED CHARGES - NET
Charges for restructuring programs and asset related charges, which includes asset impairments, were $2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and $398 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. These charges were recorded in "Restructuring and asset related charges - net" in the interim Consolidated Statements of Operations. The total liability related to restructuring programs was $55 million at March 31, 2021 and $96 million at December 31, 2020, recorded in "Accrued and other current liabilities" in the interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Restructuring activity consists of the following programs:

2020 Restructuring Program
In the first quarter of 2020, the Company approved restructuring actions designed to capture near-term cost reductions and to further simplify certain organizational structures in anticipation of the N&B Transaction (the "2020 Restructuring Program"). The Company recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $170 million inception-to-date, consisting of severance and related benefit costs of $118 million and asset related charges of $52 million.

The 2020 Restructuring Program is considered substantially complete.

2019 Restructuring Program
During the second quarter of 2019 and in connection with the ongoing integration activities, DuPont approved restructuring actions to simplify and optimize certain organizational structures following the completion of the DWDP Distributions (the "2019 Restructuring Program"). The Company has recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $124 million inception-to-date, consisting of severance and related benefit costs of $97 million and asset related charges of $27 million.

Total liabilities related to the 2019 Restructuring Program were $6 million at March 31, 2021 and $14 million at December 31, 2020, respectively, and recorded in "Accrued and other current liabilities" in the interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The 2019 Restructuring Program is considered substantially complete.

DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program
In September and November 2017, the Company approved post-merger restructuring actions under the DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program (the "Synergy Program"), which was designed to integrate and optimize the organization following the DWDP Merger and in preparation for the DWDP Distributions. The Company has recorded pre-tax restructuring charges attributable to the continuing operations of DuPont of $346 million inception-to-date, consisting of severance and related benefit costs of $138 million, asset related charges of $159 million and contract termination charges of $49 million.

Total liabilities related to the Synergy Program were $13 million at March 31, 2021 and $20 million at December 31, 2020, respectively, and recorded in "Accrued and other current liabilities" in the interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Synergy Program is considered substantially complete.

Asset Impairments
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 Corporate 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 Operation for the three months ended March 31, 2020 with the charge impacting definite-lived intangible assets and property, plant, and equipment.

Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash
At December 31, 2020, the Company had approximately $6.2 billion recorded within non-current “Restricted cash” in the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The restricted cash relates to net proceeds received from an offering of $6.25 billion of senior unsecured notes (the "N&B Notes Offering") associated with the N&B transaction. On February 1, 2021 this amount was released from escrow as part of the N&B Transaction and is no longer restricted. The liability from the N&B Notes Offering was classified as "Liabilities of discontinued operations" in the Company's interim Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2020. See Note 2 for further discussion of the Company's divestiture of the N&B business.


NOTE 6 - INCOME TAXES
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'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 first quarter of 2021 was 5.6 percent, compared with an effective tax rate of (20.6) percent for the first quarter of 2020. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2021 was principally the result of a $59 million tax benefit related to the step-up in tax basis in the goodwill of the Company’s European regional headquarters legal entity. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2020 was principally the result of the non-tax-deductible goodwill impairment charge impacting Corporate. See Note 12 for more information regarding the goodwill impairment charge.

Certain internal distributions and reorganizations that occurred in preparation for the N&B Transaction qualified as tax-free transactions under the applicable sections of the Internal Revenue Code. If the aforementioned transactions were to fail to qualify for non-recognition treatment for U.S. federal income tax purposes, then the Company could be subject to significant tax liability. In connection with the closing of the N&B Transaction, DuPont, N&B and IFF entered into the N&B Tax Matters Agreement. Under the N&B Tax Matters Agreement, the Company would generally be allocated such liability and not be indemnified, unless certain non-qualifying actions are undertaken by N&B or IFF. To the extent that the Company is responsible for any such liability, there could be a material adverse impact on the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows in future reporting periods.

For periods between the DWDP Merger and the DWDP 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 DWDP 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 DWDP Tax Matters Agreement.

NOTE 12 - GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLE ASSETS
The changes in the carrying amounts of goodwill during the three months ended March 31, 2021 were as follows:

Other
Balance at March 31, 2021$8,397 $6,881 $3,233 $18,511 

The Company tests goodwill 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 DWDP Merger, 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 2021 Segment Realignment served as a triggering event requiring the Company to perform an impairment analysis related to goodwill carried by its reporting units as of February 1, 2021, prior to the realignment. As part of the 2021 Segment Realignment, the Company assessed and re-defined certain reporting units effective February 1, 2021, including reallocation of goodwill on a relative fair value basis, as applicable, to new reporting units identified. Goodwill impairment analyses were then performed for the new reporting units identified in the Electronics & Industrial and Mobility & Materials segments impacted by the 2021 Segment Realignment. No impairments were identified as a result of the analyses described above.

In the first quarter of 2020, expectations of proceeds related to certain potential divestitures within Corporate gave rise to fair value indicators and, thus, served as triggering events requiring the Company to perform impairment analyses related to goodwill. 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 reflect softening conditions in photovoltaics markets as compared to prior estimates. In connection with this analysis, the Company recorded a pre-tax, non-cash impairment charge of $533 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 within Corporate.

The Company's analyses above used the discounted cash flow model (a form of the income approach) utilizing Level 3 unobservable inputs. The Company’s significant assumptions in these analyses include, but are not limited to, future cash flow projections, the weighted average cost of capital, the terminal growth rate, and tax rates. 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. As referenced, the Company also uses a form of the market approach. As such, the Company believes the current assumptions and estimates utilized are both reasonable and appropriate.

As part of the 2021 Segment Realignment, the Company reallocated its intangible assets with indefinite lives to align with the new segment structure. This served as a triggering event requiring the Company to perform an impairment analysis related to intangible assets with indefinite lives carried by its existing Electronics & Imaging and Transportation & Industrial segments as of February 1, 2021, prior to the realignment. Subsequent to the realignment the Company realigned intangible assets with indefinite lives as applicable to align the intangible assets with indefinite lives with the new segment structure. Impairment analyses were then performed for the intangible assets with indefinite lives carried by the Electronics & Industrial and Mobility & Materials segments. No impairments were identified as a result of the analyses described above.

During the first quarter of 2020, the Company recorded non-cash impairment charges related to definite-lived intangible assets impacting Corporate. See Note 4 for further discussion.

On April 15, 2021, the Company entered into an updated $1 billion 364-day revolving credit facility (the “2021 $1B Revolving Credit Facility") as the $1 billion 364-day revolving credit facility entered in April 2020 (the “2020 $1B Revolving Credit Facility") expired mid-April. As of the effectiveness of the 2021 $1B Revolving Credit Facility, the 2020 $1B Revolving Credit Facility was terminated. The $1B Revolving Credit facility may be used for general corporate purposes.

N&B Transaction
As part of the N&B Transaction, the Company received a Special Cash Payment of approximately $7.3 billion. The Special Cash Payment was partially funded by the N&B Notes Offering, which was completed on September 16, 2020. In order to fund
25


the remainder of the Special Cash Payment, immediately prior to the consummation of the N&B Transaction, N&B borrowed $1.25 billion under the N&B Term Loan on February 1, 2021. The obligations and liabilities associated with the N&B Notes Offering and the N&B Term Loan were separated from the Company on February 1, 2021 upon consummation of the N&B Transaction. See Note 2 for more information.

May Debt Offering
On May 1, 2020, the Company completed an underwritten public offering of senior unsecured notes (the “May 2020 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 consummation of the N&B Transaction triggered the special mandatory redemption feature of the May Debt Offering and on May 3, 2021, the Company provided notice that it will redeem the May 2020 Notes on May 13, 2021. The Company will use proceeds from the Special Cash Payment to redeem the May 2020 Notes in full together with accrued and unpaid interest.

Term Loan Facilities
On February 1, 2021, the Company terminated its fully drawn term loan facilities in the aggregate principle amount of $3 billion (the "Term Loan Facilities"). The termination triggered the repayment of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of $3 billion, plus accrued and unpaid interest through and including January 31, 2021. The Company funded the repayment with proceeds from the Special Cash Payment.

Uncommitted Credit Facilities and Outstanding Letters of Credit
Unused bank credit lines on uncommitted credit facilities were $749 million at March 31, 2021. These lines are available to support short-term liquidity needs and general corporate purposes including letters of credit. Outstanding letters of credit were $138 million at March 31, 2021. These letters of credit support commitments made in the ordinary course of business.

Debt Covenants and Default Provisions
The Company's indenture covenants include customary limitations on liens, sale and leaseback transactions, and mergers and consolidations, subject to certain limitations. The 2018 Senior Notes and May 2020 Notes also contain customary default provisions. The Five-Year Revolving Credit Facility and the 2020 $1B Revolving Credit Facility contain a financial covenant requiring that the ratio of Total Indebtedness to Total Capitalization for the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries not exceed 0.60. At March 31, 2021, the Company was in compliance with this financial covenant. There were no material changes to the debt covenants and default provisions at March 31, 2021.

NOTE 14 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES
Litigation and Environmental Matters
As of March 31, 2021, the Company has liabilities of $18 million associated with litigation matters including non-PFAS liabilities retained, assumed or indemnified under the DWDP Separation and Distribution Agreement discussed below.

In addition, DuPont has liabilities of $11 million related to the remaining settlement of the Ohio MDL, discussed below, and of $62 million in connection with the cost sharing arrangement related to future eligible PFAS costs, discussed below, between The Chemours Company (“Chemours”), Corteva, EID and the Company. Management believes that it is reasonably possible the Company could incur eligible PFAS costs in excess of the amounts accrued, but any such losses are not estimable at this time due to various reasons, including, among others, that the underlying matters are in their early stages and have significant factual issues to be resolved. Eligible PFAS costs are included in PFAS Stray Liabilities discussed below.

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

Generally, indemnifiable losses as defined in the DWDP 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 DWDP 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. While DuPont believes it is probable that it will incur a liability related to Non-PFAS Stray Liabilities discussed below, such liability is not reasonably estimable at March 31, 2021. Therefore, at March 31, 2021, DuPont has not recorded an accrual related to Non-PFAS Liabilities.
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 perfluorooctanoic acids and its ammonium salts (“PFOA”) (all such substances, “PFAS” and such Stray Liabilities referred to as “PFAS Stray Liabilities”), unless either Corteva or DuPont has met its $200 million threshold described above. 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 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.
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 DWDP 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 and/or qualified spend (as defined below), 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.

PFAS Stray Liabilities: Future Eligible PFAS Costs
On July 1, 2015, EID completed the separation of EID’s Performance Chemicals segment through the spin-off of Chemours to holders of EID common stock (the “Chemours Separation”). In connection with the spin-off, EID and Chemours entered into a Separation Agreement. In 2017, EID and Chemours amended the Chemours Separation Agreement (as amended, the “Chemours Separation Agreement”) to provide for a limited sharing of potential future liabilities related to alleged historical releases of PFOA for a five-year period that began on July 6, 2017.

On January 22, 2021, the Company, Corteva, EID and Chemours entered into a binding Memorandum of Understanding (the “MOU”), pursuant to which the parties have agreed to release certain claims that had been raised by Chemours including any claims arising out of or resulting from the process and manner in which EID structured or conducted the Chemours Separation, and any other claims that challenge the Chemours Separation or the assumption of Chemours Liabilities (as defined in the Chemours Separation Agreement) by Chemours and the allocation thereof, subject in each case to certain exceptions set forth in the MOU. In connection with the MOU, the confidential arbitration process regarding certain claims by Chemours was terminated in February 2021. The parties have further agreed not to bring any future, additional claims regarding the Chemours Separation Agreement or the MOU outside of arbitration.

Pursuant to the MOU, the parties have agreed to share certain costs associated with potential future liabilities related to alleged historical releases of certain PFAS, including PFOA, out of pre-July 1, 2015 conduct (“eligible PFAS costs”) until the earlier to occur of (i) December 31, 2040, (ii) the day on which the aggregate amount of qualified spend (as defined in the MOU) is equal to $4 billion or (iii) a termination in accordance with the terms of the MOU. This sharing arrangement replaces the cost sharing arrangement between EID and Chemours established pursuant to the Chemours Separation Agreement.

The parties have agreed that, during the term of this sharing arrangement, Chemours will bear 50 percent of any qualified spend and the Company and Corteva shall bear 50 percent of any qualified spend. The Company’s and Corteva’s share of qualified spend shall not exceed $2 billion in the aggregate. After the term of this arrangement, Chemours’ indemnification obligations under the Chemours Separation Agreement would continue unchanged, subject in each case to certain exceptions set forth in the MOU.

In order to support and manage any potential future eligible PFAS costs, the parties have also agreed to establish an escrow account. The MOU provides that (1) no later than each of September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2022, Chemours shall deposit $100 million into an escrow account and DuPont and Corteva shall together deposit $100 million in the aggregate into an escrow account and (2) no later than September 30 of each subsequent year through and including 2028, Chemours shall deposit $50 million into an escrow account and DuPont and Corteva shall together deposit $50 million in the aggregate into an escrow account. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the MOU, each party may be permitted to defer funding in any year (excluding 2021). Additionally, if on December 31, 2028, the balance of the escrow account (including interest) is less than $700 million, Chemours will make 50 percent of the deposits and DuPont and Corteva together will make 50 percent of the deposits necessary to restore the balance of the escrow account to $700 million. Such payments will be made in a series of consecutive annual equal installments commencing on September 30, 2029 pursuant to the escrow account replenishment terms as set forth in the MOU.

All funding obligations of the Company and Corteva under this sharing arrangement, whether in respect of escrow funding or in respect of qualified spend, will be allocated between the Company and Corteva in accordance with the terms of the DWDP Separation and Distribution Agreement and the terms of the Letter Agreement.

Future charges, if any, associated with the MOU would be recognized over the term of the agreement as a component of income from discontinued operations to the extent liabilities become probable and estimable.

The parties have agreed to cooperate in good faith to enter into additional agreements reflecting the terms set forth in the MOU in the second quarter of 2021.

Ohio MDL Personal Injury Cases
DuPont, which was formed after the spin-off of Chemours by EID, is not named in the personal injury and other PFAS actions discussed below.

In 2004, EID settled a West Virginia state court class action, Leach v. DuPont, which alleged that PFOA from EID’s former Washington Works facility had contaminated area drinking water supplies and affected the health of area residents. 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
28


diagnosed high cholesterol. In 2017, Chemours and 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. Since the 2017 settlement about 100 additional cases alleging personal injury, including kidney and testicular cancer claims, have been filed or noticed and are pending in the Ohio MDL.

On January 21, 2021, EID and Chemours entered into settlement agreements with plaintiffs’ counsel representing the Ohio MDL plaintiffs providing for a settlement of cases and claims in the Ohio MDL, except as noted below (the “Settlement”). The total settlement amount is $83 million in cash with each of the Company and EID contributing $27 million and Chemours contributing $29 million. At March 31, 2021 the Company had paid $16 million of its $27 million contribution; the remainder was paid in April 2021. The Settlement was entered into solely by way of compromise and settlement and is not in any way an admission of liability or fault by the Company, Corteva, EID or Chemours. In connection with the Settlement, in April 2021 the plaintiffs filed a motion to terminate the Ohio MDL. The case captioned “Abbott v E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company” is not included in the Settlement and is presently pending appeal.

In the Abbott case, the jury returned a verdict in March 2020 against 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. In March 2021, the trial judge entered an order denying EID’s post-trial motions for a reduction in the verdict amount for Mr. Abbott but reduced Mrs. Abbott’s verdict for loss of consortium from $10 million to $250,000, reducing the total verdict to $40.25 million. EID has appealed the verdict. The plaintiffs also sought but were not awarded punitive damages.

In addition to the actions described above, there are several cases alleging damages to natural resources, the environment, water, and/or property as well as various other allegations. DuPont and Corteva are named in most of the actions discussed below. Such actions include additional claims based on allegations that the transfer by EID of certain PFAS liabilities to Chemours prior to the Chemours Separation resulted in a fraudulent conveyance or voidable transaction. With the exception of the fraudulent conveyance claims, which are excluded from the MOU, legal fees, expenses, costs, and any potential liabilities for eligible PFAS costs presented by the following matters will be shared as defined in the MOU between Chemours, EID, Corteva and DuPont.

Natural Resource Damage Matters
Since May 2017, a number of state attorneys general have filed lawsuits against DuPont, Corteva, EID, Chemours, and others, claiming environmental contamination by certain PFAS compounds. Such actions are currently pending in Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio and Vermont. Generally, the states raise common law tort claims and seek economic impact damages for alleged harm to natural resources, punitive damages, present and future costs to cleanup contamination from certain PFAS compounds, and to abate the alleged nuisance. Most of these actions include fraudulent transfer claims related to the Chemours Separation and the DowDuPont separations.

Additionally, DuPont has engaged with the State of Delaware regarding potential similar causes of action for PFAS and other contaminants.

Other PFAS Environmental Matters
Several additional lawsuits have been filed by residents, local water districts, and private water companies against EID, Chemours, Corteva, DuPont and others in New York, New Jersey, and California generally alleging contamination of water systems due to the release of PFAS compounds. These suits seek compensatory and punitive damages, as well as present and future costs to clean up the alleged contamination. This includes a putative class action filed in the Northern District of New York on behalf of all individuals who, as of December 1, 2015, are or were owners of real property located in the Village of Hoosick Falls, New York and who obtain their drinking water from a privately owned well which has allegedly been contaminated by PFAS. The plaintiffs seek compensatory and punitive damages as well as medical monitoring. The certification of the class is currently pending before the court.

Additionally, there are several actions that have been filed in New Jersey and New York on behalf of residents who allege personal injuries due to exposure to PFAS in their drinking water. These lawsuits generally seek compensatory and punitive damages stemming from those alleged injuries and medical monitoring.

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 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
29


“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. The first 10 bellwether cases have been selected by the court, all of which are water district contamination cases.

As of March 31, 2021, approximately 1,020 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. EID and the Company have never made or sold AFFF, perfluorooctanesulfonic acid ("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 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. The decision of whether to certify the class is currently pending before the court.

North Carolina PFAS Actions
There are several actions pending in federal court against 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 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 200 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.

In the third quarter 2020, 3 lawsuits were filed in North Carolina state court against Chemours, EID, Corteva and DuPont. The lawsuits seek damages for alleged personal injuries to more than 100 individuals due to alleged exposure to PFOA and GenX originating from the Fayetteville Works plant. These lawsuits also include fraudulent transfer allegations related to the Chemours Separation.

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 March 31, 2021, the Company had accrued obligations of $82 million for probable environmental remediation and restoration costs, inclusive of $37 million retained and assumed following the DWDP Distributions and $45 million of indemnified liabilities. These obligations are included in "Accrued and other current liabilities" and "Other noncurrent obligations" in the 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 $172 million above the amount accrued at March 31, 2021. 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, 2020 the Company had accrued obligations of $80 million for probable environmental remediation and restoration costs.

Pursuant to the DWDP Separation and Distribution Agreement, the Company is required to indemnify certain clean-up responsibilities and associated remediation costs. The accrued environmental obligations of $45 million as of March 31, 2021 includes amount for which the Company indemnifies Dow and Corteva. At March 31, 2021, the Company has indemnified Dow and Corteva $8 million and $37 million, respectively.
30


Indemnifications
In connection with the ongoing divestitures and transactions, the Company has indemnified and has been indemnified by respective parties against certain liabilities that may arise in connection with these transactions and business activities prior to the completion of the respective transactions. The term of these indemnifications, which typically pertain to environmental, tax and product liabilities, is generally indefinite. At March 31, 2021, the indemnification assets were $80 million within "Accounts and notes receivable - net" and $228 million within "Deferred charges and other assets" and the indemnification liabilities were $160 million within "Accrued and other current liabilities" and $140 million within "Other noncurrent obligations" within the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

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 March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had directly guaranteed $180 million and $189 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.

In certain cases, the Company has recourse to assets held as collateral, as well as personal guarantees from customers. At March 31, 2021, no collateral was held by the Company.

The following table provides a summary of the final expiration year and maximum future payments for each type of guarantee:

NOTE 15 - OPERATING LEASES
Operating lease costs for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were $29 million and $31 million, respectively. Operating cash flows from operating leases were $29 million and $31 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Operating lease right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. New operating lease assets and liabilities entered into during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 were $22 million and $53 million, respectively. Supplemental balance sheet information related to leases was as follows:

Operating lease right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. As most of the Company’s leases do not provide the lessor’s implicit rate, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate at the commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments.

In connection with the N&B Distribution, DuPont entered into leasing agreements with IFF, whereby DuPont is leasing certain properties, including office spaces and R&D laboratories to IFF. These leases are classified as operating leases and lessor income and related expenses are not significant to the Company's interim Consolidated Balance Sheet or interim Consolidated Statement of Operations.

NOTE 16 - STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY
As part of the Exchange Offer from the N&B Transaction, the Company accepted and retired approximately 197.4 million shares of its common stock in exchange for about 141.7 million shares of N&B Common Stock. As a result, the Company reduced its common stock outstanding by 197.4 million shares of DuPont Common Stock as of February 1, 2021.

Share Repurchase Program
On June 1, 2019, the Company's Board of Directors approved a $2 billion share buyback program ("2019 Share Buyback Program"), which expires on June 1, 2021.

NOTE 19 - STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
A summary of the Company's stock-based compensation plans can be found in Note 20 to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

In the second quarter of 2020, the stockholders of DuPont approved the 2020 Equity and Incentive Plan (the "2020 Plan") which allows the Company to grant options, share appreciation rights, restricted shares, restricted stock units ("RSUs"), share bonuses, other share-based awards, cash awards, or a combination of the foregoing. Under the 2020 Plan, a maximum of 18 million shares of common stock are available for award as of March 31, 2021. In June of 2019, 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, RSUs and performance-based restricted stock units ("PSUs"). Under the DuPont OIP, a maximum of 2 million shares of common stock are available for award as of March 31, 2021.

DuPont recognized share-based compensation expense in continuing operations of $17 million and $38 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The income tax benefits related to stock-based compensation arrangements were $3 million and $8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

In the first quarter of 2021, the Company granted 0.6 million RSUs, 0.6 million stock options and 0.4 million PSUs. The weighted-average fair values per share associated with the grants were $72.88 per RSU, $16.92 per stock option and $78.23 per PSU. The stock options had a weighted-average exercise price per share of $72.98.

Effect of the N&B Distributions on Equity Awards
At the time of the N&B Distribution, outstanding, unvested share-based compensation awards that were denominated in DuPont common stock and held by N&B Employees were terminated and reissued as equity awards issued under the IFF stock plan.

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, and interest rate 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.

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 first quarter of 2021, the Company has not designated any derivatives or non-derivatives as hedging instruments.

35


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.

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 a loss of $20 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 ($4 million gain for the month ended March 31, 2020). 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 22 - SEGMENTS AND GEOGRAPHIC REGIONS
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.

Effective February 1, 2021, in conjunction with the closing of the N&B Transaction, the Company completed the 2021 Segment Realignment resulting in a change to its management and reporting structure. These changes resulted in the following:
Realignment of certain businesses from Transportation & Industrial to Electronics & Imaging
Dissolution of the Non-Core segment with the businesses to be divested and previously divested reflected in Corporate
Realignment of the remaining Non-Core businesses to Transportation & Industrial

In addition, the following name changes occurred:
Electronics & Imaging was renamed Electronics & Industrial
Transportation & Industrial was renamed Mobility & Materials

Changes in Financial Condition

Overview
As of March 31, 2021, the Company has $6.9 billion of working capital and approximately $6.4 billion in cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities. The Company expects its cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities, cash generated from operations, and ability to access the debt capital markets to provide sufficient liquidity and financial flexibility to meet the liquidity requirements associated with its continued operations. The Company continually assesses its liquidity position, including possible sources of incremental liquidity, in light of the current economic environment, capital market conditions and Company performance.

On February 1, 2021, DuPont completed the separation and distribution of the Nutrition & Biosciences business segment (the "N&B Business"), and merger of Nutrition & Biosciences, Inc. (“N&B”), a DuPont subsidiary formed to hold the N&B Business, with a subsidiary of International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. ("IFF"). The distribution was effected through an exchange offer (the “Exchange Offer”) where, on the terms and subject to the conditions of the Exchange Offer, eligible participating DuPont stockholders had the option to tender all, some or none of their shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of DuPont (the “DuPont Common Stock”) for a number of shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of N&B (the “N&B Common Stock”) and which resulted in all shares of N&B Common Stock being distributed to DuPont stockholders that participated in the Exchange Offer. The consummation of the Exchange Offer was followed by the merger of N&B with a wholly owned subsidiary of IFF, with N&B surviving the merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of IFF (the “N&B Merger” and, together with the Exchange Offer, the “N&B Transaction”). In connection with and in accordance with the terms of the N&B Transaction, prior to consummation of the Exchange Offer and the N&B Merger, DuPont received a one-time cash payment of approximately $7.3 billion, (the "Special Cash Payment"), which is subject to post-closing adjustment pursuant to the terms of the N&B Separation and Distribution Agreement. The company used a portion of the proceeds to retire its $3 billion term loan facilities on February 1, 2021 and will use the proceeds to fund the redemption, in accordance with their terms, of the $2 billion May 2020 Notes issuance. See discussion below and within “Liquidity and Capital Resources” for more information.

DWDP Merger and DWDP Distributions
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 ("TDCC") and E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company ("EID") each merged with subsidiaries of DowDuPont Inc. ("DowDuPont") and, as a result, TDCC and EID became subsidiaries of DowDuPont (the "DWDP 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.

On April 1, 2019, the Company completed the separation of the materials science business through the spin-off of Dow Inc., including Dow’s subsidiary TDCC (the “Dow Distribution”). On June 1, 2019, the Company completed the separation of the agriculture business through the spin-off of Corteva including Corteva’s subsidiary EID, (the “Corteva Distribution and together with the Dow Distribution, the “DWDP Distributions”).

Following the Corteva Distribution, the Company holds the specialty products business as continuing operations. 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."

N&B Transaction
The financial position of DuPont as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 and the results of operations of DuPont for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 present the historical financial results of N&B as discontinued operations. The cash flows and comprehensive income related to N&B have not been segregated and are included in the interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows and interim Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income, respectively, for all periods presented. 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 N&B. See Note 2 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information on the N&B Transaction.

2021 Segment Realignment
Immediately following the separation and distribution of the N&B Business, the Company made changes to its management and reporting structure (the “2021 Segment Realignment”) (see Note 22 for additional details). The reporting changes have been retrospectively reflected for all periods presented.

The Company reported net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 of $4.0 billion, up 8 percent from $3.7 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2020, due to a 7 percent increase in volume and a 3 percent favorable currency impact offset by a 2 percent decline in portfolio actions. Local price and product mix remained flat. The volume growth was focused in Asia Pacific offset by declines in U.S. & Canada. Volume grew across all segments, with the exception of the held for sale businesses in Corporate (down 4 percent). The most notable volume increase was in Electronics & Industrial (up 15 percent). Currency was up 3 percent compared with the same period last year, driven primarily by EMEA (up 7 percent) and Asia Pacific currencies (up 3 percent). Portfolio and other changes offset sales growth with a 2 percent decrease which impacted Corporate (down 27 percent). Local price was flat compared with the same period last year. Local price increased in Latin America (up 6 percent) and Asia Pacific (up 1 percent).

Cost of Sales
Cost of sales was $2.5 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2021, up from $2.3 billion for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Cost of sales increased for the three months ended March 31, 2021 primarily due to increased sales volume and currency impacts.

Cost of Sales as a percentage of net sales was 63 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020.

Research and Development Expenses ("R&D")
R&D expenses totaled $156 million in the first quarter of 2021, down from $173 million in the first quarter of 2020. R&D as a percentage of net sales was 4 percent and 5 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The decrease for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared with the same period of the prior year was primarily due to productivity actions and temporary cost reductions related to COVID-19.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses ("SG&A")
SG&A expenses were $456 million in the first quarter of 2021, down from $482 million in the first quarter of 2020. SG&A as a percentage of net sales was 11 percent and 13 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The decrease for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as compared with the same period of the prior year was primarily due to productivity actions and reduced spending.

Amortization of Intangibles
Amortization of intangibles was $167 million in the first quarter of 2021, down from $178 million in the first quarter of 2020. See Note 12 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information on intangible assets.

Restructuring and Asset Related Charges - Net
Restructuring and asset related charges - net were $2 million in the first quarter of 2021, down from $398 million in the first quarter of 2020. The activity in the first quarter of 2021 is due to a $2 million charge related to the 2020 Restructuring Program. The activity in the first quarter of 2020 included a $270 million impairment charge related to long-lived assets in Corporate, a $105 million charge related to the 2020 Restructuring Program, $18 million charge related to the 2019 Restructuring Program and a $5 million charge related to the DowDuPont Cost Synergy Program. See Note 4 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

Goodwill Impairment Charge
There were no goodwill related impairments for the three months ended March 31, 2021. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, goodwill impairment charge was $533 million. The goodwill impairment charge relates to businesses to be divested in 2021 which are included in Corporate. See Note 12 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

Integration and Separation Costs
Integration and separation costs, primarily consist of financial advisory, information technology, legal, accounting, consulting, and other professional advisory fees. In the first quarter of 2021, these costs were primarily associated with the execution of activities related to strategic initiatives including the divestiture of the Held for Sale Disposal Group. In the first quarter of 2020, these costs were primarily associated with the execution of activities related to the post-DWDP Merger integration and the DWDP Distributions. These costs were $6 million in the first quarter of 2021, down from $123 million in the first quarter of 2020. The decline was primarily related to the timing of the post-DWDP Merger integration activities and the DWDP Distributions.

Equity in Earnings of Nonconsolidated Affiliates
The Company's share of the earnings of nonconsolidated affiliates was $26 million in the first quarter of 2021, down from $39 million in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease is primarily due to the sale of the HSC Group in the third 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 first quarter of 2021 was income of $16 million compared with income of $212 million in the first quarter of 2020. The first quarter of 2021 included benefits related to the sale of assets within the Electronics & Industrial segment of $24 million and income related to non-operating pension and other post-employment benefit credits of $12 million, partially offset by an impairment charge related to the held for sale classification of Chestnut Run labs of $15 million and foreign currency exchange losses of $9 million. The first quarter of 2020 included benefits related to sales of the Compound Semiconductor Solutions business unit of $197 million and income related to non-operating pension and other post-employment benefit credits of $11 million.

Interest Expense
Interest expense was $146 million and $171 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The decrease primarily relates to the maturity of the November 2020 Notes, the early repayment of the $3.0 billion Term Loan Facilities, and absence of commercial paper borrowings, partially offset by financing costs related to the May Debt Offering. Refer to Note 13 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

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 first quarter of 2021 was 5.6 percent, compared with an effective tax rate of (20.6) percent for the first quarter of 2020. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2021 was principally the result of a $59 million tax benefit related to the step-up in tax basis in the goodwill of the Company’s European regional headquarters legal entity. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2020 was principally the result of the non-tax-deductible goodwill impairment charge impacting Corporate.

SEGMENT RESULTS
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") assessed 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 22 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements.

Effective February 1, 2021, DuPont changed its management and reporting structure. The reporting changes have been retrospectively reflected in the following discussion of segment results for all periods presented. See Note 22 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

Electronics & Industrial net sales were $1,300 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, up 17 percent from $1,115 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Net sales increased due to a 15 percent increase in volume and a 3 percent favorable currency impact partially offset by a 1 percent decline in price. Volume growth was driven by Semiconductor Technologies new technology ramps at advanced nodes within the logic and foundry segment and increased memory demand in servers and data centers. Volume growth within Interconnect Solutions was driven by higher material content in next-generation smartphones. Within Industrial Solutions, volume gains in display materials and healthcare more than offset weakness in aerospace and flexographic printing.  
Operating EBITDA was $436 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, up 33 percent compared with $327 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 driven by strong volume growth and a gain on the sale of assets.

Mobility & Materials net sales were $1,215 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, up from $1,091 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Net sales increased due to a 7 percent increase in volume, a 3 percent favorable currency impact and a 1 percent increase in local price. Volume growth was driven by gains in Performance Resins and Advanced Solutions attributable to the continued recovery of the global automotive market as well as strong demand for microcircuit materials. Engineering Polymers volume declined due to global supply constraints on key raw materials.
Operating EBITDA was $278 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, up 29 percent compared with $215 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 driven by volume gains and cost savings from productivity actions.

CHANGES IN FINANCIAL CONDITION
Liquidity & Capital Resources
Information related to the Company's liquidity and capital resources can be found in the Company's 2020 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 three months ended March 31, 2021.

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. 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.

In millionsMarch 31, 2021December 31, 2020
Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities$6,385 $2,544 
Total debt$12,622 $15,612 

The Company's cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 were $6.4 billion and $2.5 billion, respectively, of which $1.9 billion at March 31, 2021 and $1.8 billion at December 31, 2020 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.

Total debt at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 was $12.6 billion and $15.6 billion, respectively. The decrease was primarily due to the termination and repayment of the Company's $3 billion Term Loan Facilities in the first quarter of 2021.

As of March 31, 2021, the Company is contractually obligated to make future cash payments of $12,702 million and $6,457 million associated with principal and interest, respectively, on debt obligations. Related to the principal balance, $2,000 million, which relates to the May 2020 Notes, will be redeemed on May 13, 2021 and the remainder will be due subsequent to March 31, 2022. Related to interest, $525 million will be due in the next twelve months and the remainder will be due subsequent to March 31, 2022. The decrease in debt and interest obligations since December 31, 2020 is due to the release of obligations associated with the N&B Notes Offering that were separated from the Company on February 1, 2021, upon consummation of the N&B Transaction. This resulted in $6,250 million of principal, mostly due subsequent to 2025, and related $2,637 million of future interest obligations being separated from the Company.

Special Cash Payment
In connection with and in accordance with the terms of the N&B Transaction, prior to consummation of the Exchange Offer and the N&B Merger, DuPont received a one-time cash payment of approximately $7.3 billion, (the "Special Cash Payment"), which is subject to post-closing adjustment pursuant to the terms of the N&B Separation and Distribution Agreement. The Company utilized the Special Cash Payment to repay the $3 billion Term Loan Facilities and will use a portion of the Special Cash Payment to redeem the May 2020 Notes, as discussed below.

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.

On February 1, 2021, the Company terminated its fully drawn $3 billion Term Loan Facilities. The termination triggered the repayment of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of $3 billion, plus accrued and unpaid interest through and including January 31, 2021. The Company funded the repayment with proceeds from the Special Cash Payment.

On April 15, 2021, the Company entered into an updated $1.0 billion 364-day revolving credit facility (the “2021 $1B Revolving Credit Facility") as the $1.0 billion 364-day revolving credit facility entered in April 2020 (the “2020 $1B
48


Revolving Credit Facility") expired mid-April. As of the effectiveness of the 2021 $1B Revolving Credit Facility, the 2020 $1B Revolving Credit Facility was terminated. The $1B Revolving Credit facility may be used for general corporate purposes.

May Debt Offering
On May 1, 2020, the Company completed an underwritten public offering of senior unsecured notes (the “May 2020 Notes”) in the aggregate principal amount of $2 billion of 2.169 percent fixed rate Notes due May 1, 2023 (the “May Debt Offering”). Upon consummation of the N&B Transaction, the special mandatory redemption feature of the May Debt Offering was triggered, requiring the Company to redeem all of the May 2020 Notes at a redemption price equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of the May 2020 Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest. On May 3, 2021, the Company provided notice that it will redeem the May 2020 Notes on May 13, 2021. The Company will fund the redemption with proceeds from the Special Cash Payment.

Laird Performance Materials
On March 8, 2021, the Company announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement with Advent International to acquire Laird Performance Materials for $2.3 billion. The acquisition is expected to close in the third quarter of 2021, subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, and will be part of the Electronic & Industrials segment. The Company intends to pay for the acquisition from existing cash balances.

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 April 30, 2021, DuPont's credit ratings were as follows:
Credit RatingsLong-Term RatingShort-Term RatingOutlook
Standard & Poor’sBBB+A-2Stable
Moody’s Investors ServiceBaa1P-2Stable
Fitch RatingsBBB+F-2Stable

The Company's indenture covenants related to its 2018 Senior Notes and May 2020 Notes 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 Five-Year Revolving Credit Facility and the 2020 and 2021 $1B Revolving Credit Facilities 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 March 31, 2021, 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 N&B have not been segregated and are included in the interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

Cash Flows from Operating Activities
In the first three months of 2021, cash provided by operating activities was $378 million, compared with $718 million in the same period last year. The decrease in cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to an increase in the use of cash for net working capital, as well as a decrease in net income after adjustment for non-cash items such as net gain on sales of businesses and investments, restructuring and asset related charges, goodwill impairment charges, and depreciation and amortization. Activity related to the N&B business is included in all three months of the comparative period and the first month of 2021.

Cash Flows from Investing Activities
In the first three months of 2021, cash used for investing activities was $2,260 million, compared with $124 million in the first three months of 2020. The increase in cash used was primarily attributable to an increase in purchases of investments and a decrease in proceeds from sales of property and businesses (net of cash dividend), partially offset by a decrease in capital expenditures. Activity related to the N&B business is included in all three months of the comparative period and the first month of 2021.

Cash Flows from Financing Activities
In the first three months of 2021, cash used for financing activities was $2,458 million compared with $344 million in the same period last year. The primary driver of the increase in cash used was an increase in payments on long-term debt and an increase in share purchases of common stock, partially offset by proceeds from issuance of long-term debt transferred to IFF at split-off. Activity related to the N&B business is included in all three months of the comparative period and the first month of 2021.

Dividends
On February 18, 2021, the Board of Directors declared a first quarter dividend of $0.30 per share, paid on March 15, 2021, to shareholders of record on March 1, 2021.

As of March 31, 2021, the Company repurchased 23.7 million shares under this program since inception at a total cost of $1.5 billion. See Part II, Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds, for additional information.

In the first quarter of 2021, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a new $1.5 billion share buyback program, which expires on June 30, 2022 ("2021 Share Buyback Program"). The Company expects to repurchase shares under the 2021 Share Buyback Program after the completion of the 2019 Share Buyback Program.

Pension and Other Post-Employment Plans
DuPont expects to make additional contributions in the aggregate of approximately $75 million by year-end 2021 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.

Restructuring
In March 2020, the Company approved restructuring actions designed to capture near-term cost reductions and to further simplify certain organizational structures in anticipation of the N&B Transaction (the "2020 Restructuring Program"). As a result of these actions, the Company recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $170 million inception-to-date, consisting of severance and related benefit costs of $118 million and asset related charges of $52 million. Actions associated with the 2020 Restructuring Program are considered substantially complete. Future cash payments related to the 2020 Restructuring Program are anticipated to be $36 million primarily related to the payment of severance and related benefits.

Actions associated with the 2019 Restructuring Program are considered substantially complete. Future cash payments related to the 2019 Restructuring Program are anticipated to be $6 million and relate 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 (the "Synergy Program"), adopted by the DowDuPont Board of Directors. The Synergy Program was designed to integrate and optimize the organization following the DWDP Merger and in preparation for the DWDP Distributions whereby the Company has recorded pre-tax restructuring charges attributable to the continuing operations of DuPont of $346 million inception-to-date, consisting of severance and related benefit costs of $138 million, asset related charges of $159 million and contract termination charges of $49 million. Actions associated with the Synergy Program, including employee separations, are considered substantially complete. Future cash payments related to the Synergy Program are anticipated to be $13 million and relate to the payment of severance and related benefits.

See Note 4 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements for more information on the Company's restructuring programs.

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 March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had directly guaranteed $180 million and $189 million, respectively, of such obligations. Additional information related to the guarantees of the Subsidiaries can be found in the “Guarantees” section of Note 14 to the interim Consolidated Financial Statements.
