DuPont Chief Financial Officer Reviews Company's Accelerated Growth Plan

NEW YORK, March 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At a conference with security analysts today, DuPont (NYSE: DD) Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer Jeffrey L. Keefer reviewed the company's accelerated growth plan, designed to nearly double DuPont's earnings growth rate over the next three years.

"As a market-driven science company, DuPont's competitive advantage is new product innovation," Keefer said. "Our rising return from innovation and rapid growth in emerging markets are key growth drivers for us. We will continue to execute our growth strategies while maintaining financial discipline and increasing productivity gains across the company."

The actions DuPont is taking are expected to increase the company's revenue growth rate from 5 percent to about 7-9 percent per year, including 1- 2 percent from bolt-on acquisitions, Keefer said.

Based on current plans, DuPont projects it can achieve earnings per share growth of 10 percent or more, on average, between 2008 and 2010, despite anticipated declines in pharmaceutical royalties after patents expire in 2010. Keefer said the company's goal is to achieve 2010 earnings per share within a range of $4.05 to $4.30. In 2007, the company earned $3.28 per share, excluding net significant item charges of $.06 per share.

The company intends to capitalize on rising global demand for its science- based products in agriculture and safety and protection; further penetrate key markets in the world's rapidly growing geographies; and extend its productivity improvement programs. DuPont expects to generate $1.7 billion in productivity gains over the next three years by continuing efforts already under way to streamline and simplify its supply chains and business support operations.

DuPont is a science-based products and services company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture and food; building and construction; communications; and transportation.
