This job is no longer available.


On December 11, 2015, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (“DuPont”) and The Dow Chemical

Company (“Dow”) announced that their boards of directors unanimously approved a definitive

agreement under which the companies would combine in an all-stock merger of equals with the

combined company to be named DowDuPont™. On September 1, 2017, DowDuPont announced

the successful completion of the merger effective August 31, 2017. Shares of DuPont and Dow

ceased trading at the close of the New York Stock Exchange, and DowDuPont started trading

under the ticker symbol “DWDP.” The combined entity is operating as a holding company with

three leading, global divisions – Agriculture, Materials Science and Specialty Products.

DowDuPont brings together the complementary portfolios of Dow and DuPont, two innovative,

science-based companies. Each of the divisions has a clear focus, an appropriate capital

structure, a distinct and compelling investment thesis, scale advantages, and focused

investments in innovation to better deliver superior solutions and choices for customers. The new

combined company will pursue splitting into three industry-leading, publicly traded companies,

with the separations expected to occur within 18months. It is anticipated that these three strong,

independent companies will be more competitive than either predecessor company could be on

its own, and well equipped for science-driven and profitable, long-term growth.

The “DowDuPont Agriculture Company” (“AgCo”) will be the leading global pure-play agriculture

company that unites DuPont’s and Dow’s seed and crop protection businesses. The combined

entity will have the most comprehensive and diverse portfolio and robust pipeline with exceptional

growth opportunities in the near-, mid- and long-term. The complementary offerings of the two

legacy companies will combine to provide growers across geographies with a broad portfolio of

solutions and greater choice. Combined pro forma revenue for the DowDuPont Agriculture

business is approximately $14 billion with approximately 25,000 employees worldwide.
