In response to the letter from Trian Fund Management sent earlier this morning, DuPont issued the following statement: "Our board of directors and management team have taken firm action over several years that has delivered 220 percent total shareholder return since year-end 2008, compared to 144 percent for the S&P 500 during the same period, by aggressively deploying our leading science across the company, strengthening and fine-tuning our portfolio, and through disciplined capital allocation. The board and management team remain committed to executing on our strategic plan to drive growth and profitability. The recently announced first phase of our redesign initiative to drive down costs by $1 billion and embed greater efficiencies, together with the separation of Performance Chemicals and our $5 billion share repurchase program, reflect our board and management's commitment to enhance value for all DuPont shareholders. DuPont welcomes open communications with shareholders and values input toward our common goal of enhancing shareholder value. We speak and meet with shareholders frequently, and while it is our policy not to comment on discussions with specific shareholders, we have had a constructive dialogue with Trian."

06:53 EDTDD, HONWhite House says companies taking steps to reduce HFCs emissions
The Obama Administration yesterday announced new private sector commitments and executive actions to reduce emissions of hydroflourocarbons, or HFCs, powerful greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change, the Shite House stated. Coca-Cola (KO) has set a goal for 100 percent of its newly purchased cold drink equipment to be HFC-free, .while DuPont (DD),, announced that its new products are anticipated to reduce greenhouse gas content of refrigerants by some 90M tons carbon dioxide equivalent in the U.S., and 245M tons worldwide by 2025, the White House noted. Honeywell (HON) plans to transition the majority of its high-GWP HFC production to new low-GWP production, while Johnson Controls (JCI) committed to using the lowest GWP option for each application that best fits the needs of its customers from the standpoint of safety, efficiency, reliability, availability, and economy, according to the White House Johnson Controls also commits to spend $50M over the next three years to develop new products and improve and expand its existing low-GWP portfolio.

06:06 EDTDDTrian Partners says DuPont's structure 'destroying shareholder value'
Trian Fund Management, L.P., whose investment funds beneficially own approximately $1.6B of the outstanding shares of DuPont, said it has sent a letter to the bomard analyzing how DuPontís conglomerate structure is destroying shareholder value. The letter and accompanying White Paper Summary also detail initiatives DuPont should take that Trian believes could significantly improve DuPontís financial performance and double the value of its common stock within three years. Trian plans to meet with DuPont shareholders to present its analysis and strongly recommends that the DuPont Board meet shareholders without management present to hear their views. In the letter, Trian said, "While we applaud the announced spin-off of Performance Chemicals, the Fresh Start initiative and the $5 billion share buyback authorization, we believe strongly that, by themselves, these moves are not enough to optimize shareholder value. We would have preferred to continue working privately with management and the Board, but it is now clear that the Board is not willing to hold management accountable for continuing underperformance and repeated failures to deliver promised revenue and earnings targets. Therefore, we can no longer be silent as DuPont continues to struggle to execute what we are convinced is a flawed business plan, especially as we have a solution that we believe could double the value of DuPontís shares over the next three years."

11:03 EDTHONHoneywell ups production of low-global-warming materials
Honeywell announced that it will increase production of its low-global-warming-potential refrigerants, insulation materials, aerosols and solvents, and, prior to 2020, will drive a 50% reduction in its annual production of high-GWP hydrofluorocarbons on a CO2 equivalent basis. The company projects that use of its low-GWP Solstice HFC replacements will eliminate more than 350 million metric tons in CO2 equivalents by 2025. The company and its suppliers anticipate spending nearly $900M in R&D and new capacity, mainly in the U.S., in the coming years to produce next-generation refrigerants, insulation materials, aerosols and solvents, which have global warming potentials equal to or better than carbon dioxide and at least 99% lower than most technologies used today. Honeywell has invested nearly $350M to date and today announced that it and its suppliers plan to spend approximately $550M more to support the new products.

12:03 EDTDDUSDA raises U.S. corn yield forecast to record
In its monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's corn yield forecast is raised 4.3 bushels per acre to a record 171.7 bushels. Corn production for 2014/15 is forecast 363 million bushels higher at a record 14,395 million bushels. Total 2014/15 corn usage is projected at 13,605 million bushels, up 170 million from last month. Although a record, usage is expected up just 5 million bushels from 2013/14 as export prospects remain constrained by large foreign carryin stocks, the USDA wrote. Publicly traded companies in the agriculture space include Agrium (AGU), Andersons (ANDE), Archer Daniels (ADM), Bunge (BG), CF Industries (CF), Compass Minerals (CMP), DuPont (DD), Intrepid Potash (IPI), Monsanto (MON), Mosaic (MOS), Potash (POT) and Syngenta (SYT).
