NRLN INFORMATION

NRLN information particularly relevant to DuPont Retirees Chapter; Action Alerts; Enrollment instructions

Welcome to our webpage, DuPont current and future retirees.

The NRLN (National Retirees Legislative Network) is a nationwide organization that advocates for Federal Legislation to protect all retiree benefits including pensions, company provided healthcare, Social Security, Medicare, and lower prescription drug costs. We started this DuPont Retirees Chapter (DRC) because of concerns about the long-term security of our underfunded pension plan. As a chapter of the NRLN we benefit from education on retiree issues (such as how ERISA law and the PBGC helps to protect our pensions) and knowledge of what other corporations and retiree groups are doing about retiree benefits. With this webpage and our email utility, delivering key documents to our members directly, we strive to be a key communication mechanism on retiree issues, as DuPont and Dow carry out their plan to merge and then split into smaller companies.

Please look at the middle column of this page to read our communications on pension and other retiree issues. The most current notes are always visible, while scrolling down to the Archive, you can see older communications, in reverse chronological order. The right-most column is a repository of pertinent media articles about the merger and pension issues. We hope that you will review the wealth of information on our DRC page, as well as the NRLN homepage, for a good understanding of our efforts.

We also hope that you will decide to enroll as a member of the DuPont Retirees Chapter by using the sign up link above. When you select the Association/Chapter from the drop down list, we are located near the bottom as "NRLN DuPont Retirees Chapter". It does not cost anything to be a member but the NRLN does accept contributions of any amount (there is a link below for this also).

COMMUNICATIONS & ACTIONS RELATED TO DUPONT

Chapter history and activities; current and archived communications with DuPont management, concerning retiree benefit issues, are just the opinions of the writers.

To: NRLN DuPont Retirees Chapter Members – May 19, 2016
From: Paul Kende

I attended the DuPont Retired Managers Society (DRMS) annual luncheon, where Ed Breen, CEO and Nick Fanandakis, CFO spoke about company business, the merger and the status of the pension plan. The Wilmington News Journal published an article on management’s comments, which you can read here. Beyond the points covered in the WNJ article, I highlight comments made by Ed and Nick in their presentation, or answering questions from the audience of about 200 DRMS members. (My own personal comments are all in parentheses).

Business

  • DuPont’s safety performance is excellent, with 60% reduction of lost workday cases and 28% reduction of employee recordable injury rate.
  • Business results are very good. After three years of negative top line growth, 1Q17 has seen 5% positive growth and the 2nd quarter also looks promising. Earnings/share has grown for 6 consecutive quarters, consistently beating Wall Street expectations. Operating earnings are up, costs are down. Free cash flow has also increased.

Merger

  • Many foreign regulatory approvals have been received; approvals are still needed from Canada, India and U.S. The European Commission’s global assessment and conditional approval is the key. Full approval is expected and the merger closing is now forecast for August 1st. The three-way business separation is now projected within 18 months from the time of the merger closing.
  • The asset swap of some of DuPont’s crop protection business, for FMC’s nutrition and health business, and $1.6B cash, is a mutually beneficial deal.
  • After the merger, no further regulatory approvals will be required and DowDuPont will be free to execute the spinoffs as they deem appropriate.
  • The Dow, DuPont and Pioneer names have great “brand value” and will probably be used in some manner.

Pension

  • Nick Fanandakis acknowledged the confusion that the various ways of calculating pension obligations and funding levels can cause. (Nick’s comments were consistent with my note to you on May 4, indicating funding levels of 66%, 77%, or 91%, depending on the calculations used in the Annual Funding Notice, the Form 5500, or the 10 K Consolidated Financial Satement, as of January 1, 2016).
  • The$ 2.9 B contribution to the pension plan is a big move, which strengthens the plan and reduces risk for retirees. Anticipating corporate tax rate reductions and taking advantage of low interest rates on borrowing, DuPont decided to make his contribution now, rather than spread it out over 5 or 6 years, some of which the three SpinCos would have to contribute. This contribution is roughly half of the current funding shortfall at year-end 2016, on the basis of the 10K report. (I am trying to find out DuPont’s revised contribution plan).
  • The present value of pension obligation is a sensitive function of the assumed interest/discount rate; a 0.5% rate change causes approximately $1B change in the liability’s present value.
  • DuPont’s non-qualified pension obligations will be covered by a trust, set up several years ago, to become fully funded when the merger takes effect.
  • Allocation of assets and liabilities, among the 3 SpinCo businesses, has not yet been decided. But the $2.9B contribution provides for more flexibility and options. All 3 businesses will be strong, leading performers in their fields, and no-one will be disadvantaged by their assignment to any of the spinoffs. (I am seeking to learn how this will be ensured).
  • There are no current plans for conversion of the pensions to annuities, through an insurance company. While this may have some pros and cons, it would require a lot of more cash to boost funding levels, than is available.

DuPont intends to Contribute $2.9 billion to the Pension Fund in 2017

To: NRLN DuPont Retirees Chapter Members – May 4, 2017
Subject: DuPont’s plan to contribute $2.9B to its US Pension Plan in 2017

Several Chapter members have asked if we have any thoughts on the views expressed in the Wilmington News Journal article posted online over last weekend and published in the print edition on Monday, May 1. The article reports that DuPont will borrow $2 billion dollars to be used for making contributions to the U.S. DuPont Pension Plan.

In a May 2 SEC filing, DuPont indicated it will make a total of $2.9 billion contribution to the U.S. Pension Plan in 2017. DuPont has NOT indicated their purpose for this financial move. To read the article, click here.

The article quotes some DuPont retirees and a Professor of Pension Benefits, speculating about DuPont’s intentions, and expressing their concerns. There is little value in commenting on speculations, and it is not our purpose to either refute or endorse the WNJ article and the comments in it about DuPont’s announcement. However, in the paragraphs below, we offer some clarifications of pension funding issues and try to define the potential uses of the $2.9B contribution and their ramifications, as we understand them:

  1. Pension Plan funding level is the assets of the Fund expressed as a % of its obligations. Because pension obligations are paid out over many years, they are represented by their Present Value, which in turn, depends on the assumed interest/discount rates. The just issued Annual Funding Notice (AFN) provides asset, obligation and funding level values, calculated on both the “traditional” (2-year average U.S. Treasury Bond interest), as well as the “adjusted” (25-year average corporate bond interest) basis, permitted by the MAP-21 corporate pension contribution relief legislation.
    In pension fund valuations, different interest rate assumptions are made for different purposes (such as minimum contribution requirements, investment management, de-risking, PBGC evaluations, etc.), which result in different calculated funding levels for the same pension plan. In addition to the AFN, the DuPont Annual Report, the Form 5500 Report and the 10K Consolidated Financial Report, issued at different times, all provide different pension plan valuations, and the U.S. Plan is not always fully separated out from the Global DuPont Pension Plan financial summary – all of which can create confusion. For example, depending on the source, the definitions used and the assumptions made, the DuPont U.S. Pension Plan funding level is stated as 68%, 77% or 91% (as of 1/1/2016). We are attempting to review, understand and reconcile the definitions and differences among all these documents and plan to provide you with a fuller report.
    In any case, Pensions & Investments magazine’s Special 2017 Report on Corporate Pension Funds, ranks the 100 largest funds by funding ratio (as of 12/31, 2016) – presumably evaluating them all on the same basis. DuPont’s Plan is 91st, at a low funding level of 67.1%, probably based on the unadjusted, pre-MAP-21 interest rates. Dow is 82nd, at 70%. However calculated, the fact that DuPont is now planning to infuse $2.9B into the U.S. Pension Fund, recognizes its underfunded current status.

  2. IF some or all of the $2.9B were to be used to boost the funding level of the Plan, this would increase retirees’ financial security to some degree. The Pension Benefit Corporation (PBGC) generally considers plans below 80% funding ratio “at risk”. It is unclear whether the planned $2.9B cash contribution would bring the funding level above 80%, and out of the “at risk” zone.
  3. IF some or all of the $2.9B were to be used to fully fund a segment of the Plan, for a selected population of Plan Participants, it could position that segment for potential transfer to an insurance company. Retirees allocated into that segment would presumably receive annuities equal to their pension. However, should the insurance company fail, the PBGC would not guarantee coverage under federal law. There are insurance guaranty funds in every state, in case of insurance company bankruptcy, but the maximum total payouts, ranging from $100K to $500K, are much smaller than the PBGC guaranteed levels; this would represent increased risk for those who are annuitized in this manner. Secondary, “re-insurance” could potentially compensate for this increased risk. And the funding level of the remaining DuPont Pension Plan would also have to be protected, to avoid increased risk for those participants not annuitized. And of course, the remaining part of the DuPont Pension Plan would still be under PGBC’s guarantee (subject to maximum payment limits, set by federal law).
  4. IF some or all of the $2.9B were to be used for Lump Sum offers to a selected segment of the Plan Participant population (people already drawing their pension would not be eligible by law) this would reduce overall Pension Plan obligations, raising the funding level and reducing risk correspondingly.

Recognizing that DuPont has not indicated its specific plans for deploying the $2.9B contribution to the Pension Plan, any of the options described in 2, 3 and 4 above seem possible, either separately, or in some combination. There may even be other options we have not considered here. We cannot predict what DuPont will do, nor evaluate the exact financial impact of its possible actions on our pension security. But we want to ensure you are aware of these announcements by the Company, and give you a few thoughts to consider, relative to our pension security. As we learn more, we will try to keep you informed.

Regards to all.......Jim Odle and Paul Kende
