DuPont to Acquire Danisco for $6.3 Billion
Date:1/9/2011

WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPont (NYSE: DD) has entered into a definitive agreement for the acquisition of Danisco, a global enzyme and specialty food ingredients company, for $5.8 billion in cash and assumption of $500 million of Danisco net debt.  Upon closing, this transaction would establish DuPont as a clear leader in industrial biotechnology with science-intensive innovations that address global challenges in food production and reduced fossil fuel consumption.  

"Danisco is a premier company, a long-time successful partner of DuPont and a proven innovator committed to sustainable growth," said DuPont Chair and CEO Ellen Kullman.  "Danisco has attractive, market-driven science businesses that offer clear synergies with DuPont Nutrition & Health and Applied BioSciences."

"This transaction is a perfect strategic fit with our growth opportunities and will help us solve global challenges presented by dramatic population growth in the decades to come, specifically related to food and energy.  In addition, biotechnology and specialty food ingredients have the potential to change the landscape of industries, such as substituting renewable materials for fossil fuel processes and addressing food needs in developing economies, that will generate more sustainable solutions and create growth for the company," Kullman said.  

The acquisition is expected to be financed with about $3 billion in existing cash and the remainder in debt.  The transaction is expected to close early in the second quarter and be cash and earnings accretive in 2012, the first full year of the combined entity.

DuPont has set its 2011 earnings per share outlook at a range of $3.30 to $3.60 per share. The anticipated impact of this transaction would reduce that outlook by $.30 to $.45 per share on a reported basis.
