DuPont Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results

Reading time ( words)

DuPont announced financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

"We delivered second quarter financial results ahead of expectations by maintaining a disciplined focus on pricing actions and operational excellence in the face of continued global supply chain and logistics challenges and ongoing inflationary pressure," said Ed Breen, DuPont Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Underlying demand during the quarter in our key end-markets remained strong. Year-over-year and sequential sales and earnings growth in a volatile macro environment demonstrated the strength of our portfolio, our deep customer relationships and the leading market positions we hold globally."

"We continue to advance our previously announced portfolio actions of acquiring Rogers Corporation and divesting a substantial portion of the former Mobility & Materials segment," Breen continued. "Regarding Rogers, we expect to close the acquisition during the third quarter of 2022, with China being the last remaining jurisdiction requiring regulatory approval. For the M&M transactions, we continue to expect the completion of the sale of portions of this business to Celanese to close around year-end."

"As DuPont drives innovation investment to support long-term growth, we continue to introduce new products across our key growth pillars," Breen said. "We are excited to have won four 2022 Edison Awards highlighting innovative technologies, while also progressing well with our broader new product pipeline to support growth over the coming years."

Catching Up with Prototron’s Lee Salazar: Sales in the New Frontier

07/12/2022 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
In the business world, salespeople arguably were the most affected by the pandemic. These professionals had to be the most creative when trying to ply their trade. They had to work from home, make phone calls in lieu of face to face, and learn how to use social media networks and newsletters. This was all to reach their customers—who also were working from home. Even when they got vaccinated and managed to hit the road, they often found that their customers’ doors were closed and they were not allowed inside, if their particular contact was there at all. Many times, they had to resort to meeting their customers in parking lots or restaurants with outdoor dining. And guess what? It’s not even over yet. So, how does a salesperson create success when so much seems to have changed? I reached out to Lee Salazar of Prototron to learn how he met the challenges, and his tips for others who are moving forward.
