Abstract

Few events have been as transformational to the chemical industry in the last century as the merger of Dow and DuPont.

This talk will cover how DowDuPont combined highly complementary portfolios to create three stronger global growth businesses – in Agriculture, Materials Science, and Specialty Products – each with the right strategic focus and capital structure necessary to meet the specific demands of its end markets.

The merger, completed in August 2017, brought together two leading companies with more than 320 combined years of history in science and innovation. Through successful integration and value capture initiatives, as well as by aligning 20 different end markets in the right way with the power of the R&D and innovation capabilities spanning both Dow and DuPont, the combined company is now in the final stages of its historic transaction – about to separate into three and unlock significant value for customers, shareholders, employees, and communities.

The new DuPont will emerge as a global innovation leader that provides value-added solutions in key specialty markets, building on an industrial evolution spanning more than two centuries. Each period of change has been driven by the company’s science core and its ability to adapt to market opportunities at every phase of its history. With a strong portfolio of businesses, more focused R&D, and an intense focus on returns, the company will be poised to succeed over the long-term and drive sustainable value for its stakeholders.

This discussion focuses on the insights of a most influential figure in the industry and his views on the opportunity ahead.
