DuPont to Brief Investors on Performance of their Materials Business Segment

Published on December 6, 2007 at 11:30 AM

At a briefing today with security analysts, Diane H. Gulyas, group vice president -- DuPont Performance Materials, discussed the segment's growth and productivity strategies.  With more than $6 billion in annual sales, the DuPont Performance Materials platform is delivering customer-driven product innovation and value-added applications development for the global packaging, transportation, electrical and construction markets.

"We have delivered strong revenue and earnings growth by introducing innovative new products and end-use applications, while driving cost productivity," Gulyas said.  "Our product innovations have supported price gains and our cost focus has been especially important in light of the significant increase in raw material costs over the past three years.  We also have increased our global presence with strong growth in emerging markets.

"We see exciting new growth opportunities that we will pursue by leveraging DuPont polymer, nanotechnology and biotechnology science in photovoltaics, advanced metals replacement and renewable polymers.  At the same time, we will continue to deliver valuable, high-performance polymer materials and solutions to our customers at attractive returns on capital," Gulyas said.

Today's presentation can be found at the Investor Center of the company's website at www.dupont.com.
