"Our fourth quarter results underpin the quality of our portfolio and our ability to offset a continued challenging global macro environment by focusing on the levers within our control," said Ed Breen, DuPont Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "In the face of weak conditions in certain end-markets, namely electronics and construction, we delivered revenue and operating EBITDA results in line with our expectations."

"Our leading global market positions, disciplined pricing actions and focus on execution drove sales and earnings growth for the year and these factors will be critical as we navigate continued global macro challenges in 2023," Breen continued.

"The steps completed in 2022 to further transform our portfolio advance our strategy as a premier multi-industrial company and enable us to move forward with a stronger balance sheet and increased financial flexibility," Breen said. "For the year, we deployed more than $5.0 billion of capital through share repurchase programs and dividends and retired $2.5 billion in long-term debt which highlights our ongoing commitment to a balanced capital allocation approach. We also remain focused on value creation by strengthening our position within key growth pillars through continued investment and innovation."

IPC reports that North American PCB sales up 26.1% in November YOY, and the book-to-bill is dead-on at 1.00. Cybord CEO Zeev Efrat explains how his company can provide 100% component inspection. And I have an interview with a student I ran into at PCB Carolina who is working toward his “dream job” on being a technician. As Alex Barile says, he’d hate to work at a desk all day; he likes to install equipment.
