07:04 EDTFMCFMC Corporation cuts Q2 EPS to 95c-$1.05 from $1.05-$1.15, consensus $1.11
Cuts FY14 EPS $4.10-$4.30 from $4.35-$4.55, consensus $4.44. The company said weather conditions persisted later into the second quarter than expected leading to reduced application of pre-emergent products. Although sales of Authority brand soybean pre-emergent herbicides increased as expected, the increase was not enough to offset lower than expected sales of other products, particularly Capture LFR corn insecticide. In addition, the company reported that drought conditions in the Sao Paulo state of Brazil were delaying sales into the sugarcane segment. The company did not expect this drought to continue through the second quarter. These extended poor growing conditions have resulted in growers reducing their use of crop protection products. Furthermore, growers have significantly reduced the rate at which they are replanting, which has reduced the use of herbicides and insecticides in the sugarcane segment. The company does not expect conditions to improve in sugarcane during the remainder of 2014. As a result of these factors, the company expects second quarter segment earnings for Agricultural Solutions to be up mid-single digits percent compared to the second quarter of 2013. For the full year 2014, revenues and operating earnings for the Agricultural Solutions segment are expected to increase by a mid-single digits percentage over 2013.

05:40 EDTFMCFMC Corporation to acquire Cheminova for $1.8B
FMC Corporation announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Cheminova A/S, a wholly owned subsidiary of Auriga Industries A/S. Cheminova is a multinational crop protection company based in Denmark. FMC will fund the all-cash acquisition through a mixture of debt and existing cash reserves. The transaction is expected to close in early 2015 and will be accretive to adjusted earnings in the first full year following the acquisition. FMC will modify its previously announced separation plans by pursuing a sale of Alkali Chemicals. Commenting on this decision, Brondeau said, "FMC is committed to its strong balance sheet and a sale of Alkali Chemicals will allow us to de-lever to a point that is appropriate for our business profile. Alkali Chemicals is a well-run, highly profitable and cash generative business, and we are confident it will attract many interested buyers. We expect to complete this sale by mid-2015."
