Jim Fitterling, chairman and chief executive officer, commented on the quarter:
“Our second quarter results reflected strong demand in all our value chains and regions as we achieved substantial growth in sales and earnings both sequentially and year-over-year. Team Dow maintained its focus on execution and cost discipline, resulting in continued margin expansion. With our deliberate approach to capital allocation, we reduced gross debt by more than $1 billion; advanced our incremental, high-growth investments; returned cash to shareholders through our industry-leading dividend; and resumed our share repurchase program. And, we released our consolidated ESG report, “INtersections”, which provides enhanced transparency on our environmental, social and governance priorities and performance.”
