Cautionary Statement about Forward-Looking Statements

Overview: On May 22, 2024, DuPont announced a plan to separate the company into three distinct, publicly traded companies. Under the plan, DuPont would execute the proposed separations of its Electronics and Water businesses in a tax-free manner to its shareholders leaving DuPont to continue as a diversified industrial company following completion of the separations.  DuPont expects to complete the separations within 18 to 24 months of the announcement date. The separation transactions will not require a shareholder vote and are subject to satisfaction of customary conditions, including final approval by DuPont's Board of Directors, receipt of tax opinion from counsel, the filing and effectiveness of Form 10 registration statements with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, applicable regulatory approvals and satisfactory completion of financing. Please refer to the announcement and presentation materials from May 22, 2024, posted to the Investor section of for more information.

Effective as of January 1, 2024, Electronics & Industrial realigned certain product lines that comprise its business units (Industrial Solutions, Interconnect Solutions and Semiconductor Technologies) that are intended to optimize business operations across the segment leading to enhanced value for customers and cost savings. The Net Trade Revenue by Segment and Business or Major Product Line has been recast for all periods presented to reflect the new structure. The realignment did not result in changes to total Electronics and Industrial segment net sales.
