Dow Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results
Jim Fitterling, CEO, commented on the quarter: “Our results this quarter demonstrated the Dow team’s focus on managing operational levers in response to a difficult business environment. We grew volume in our packaging, polyurethanes and silicones businesses, and once again successfully leveraged our industry-leading feedstock flexibility in the U.S. and Europe. Our team also took actions to improve pricing – with notable improvements in the Packaging and Specialty Plastics business toward the end of the quarter. Further, we continued to drive down our cost structure, completing the $1.365 billion cost synergy program and removing $40 million of stranded costs. Together, these factors delivered sequential earnings, margins and free cash flow improvements. Overall, our results showcased the strengths of the Dow portfolio and team.”
