12:41 EDTMONMonsanto announces agreement with Brazilian grower organizations
Monsanto Company and leading grower organizations in Brazil announced that they have reached an agreement that will support the introduction of next-generation products like INTACTA RR2 PRO soybeans. Under the agreement, participating Brazilian farmers will secure a new license that will allow them to purchase soybeans containing the new INTACTA RR2 PRO technology, expected to be available in the 2013-2014 growing season. The agreement also provides clarity on first-generation Roundup Ready soybeans for participating farmers. Those farmers will be released from payment of technology royalty fees for first-generation Roundup Ready soybeans for this and next season, while waiving all potential legal claims for payments previously made for this first-generation technology. Farmers who elect to not participate will continue to pay royalties on that technology through the term of Monsanto's intellectual property rights in Brazil that cover the first-generation Roundup Ready soybeans. Monsanto had previously excluded the contribution related to the company's first-generation Roundup Ready soybean business in Brazil from its EPS and free cash flow guidance, reflecting an estimated historical annual range of 20c to 25c.

08:08 EDTMONMonsanto sees Q1 earnings roughly half last year, FY15 growth concentrated in Q3
Monsanto said, "As its business has expanded globally over the past several years, the company has seen its earnings flow evolve between quarters. This trend continues in FY15 as the company anticipates an overall shift in its full-year earnings pattern, as several structural factors result in a full-year earnings flow with a smaller first quarter and a concentration of growth in the third quarter. With macro conditions resulting in lower planted acres for key regions in both corn and cotton in the quarter, combined with a timing shift as the company moves more of its Agricultural Productivity business to branded-product sales, Monsanto expects its first quarter will be roughly half of the total earnings from the first quarter of 2014. Beyond the first quarter, the biggest first half timing effect relates to the evolution in its Channel seed brand business model that is expected to shift business timing from the first and second quarters to the third quarter. The company expects second quarter earnings to be relatively flat year-over-year with a significant uptick in third quarter earnings reflecting the timing shifts and business growth in its largest markets. The earnings flow is punctuated by a fourth quarter that is expected to be break-even to positive year-over-year on an absolute basis."
