CEO QUOTE

Jim Fitterling, chairman and chief executive officer, commented on the quarter:

"Team Dow once again delivered net sales growth both year-over-year and sequentially with price increases across all operating segments and regions. Our competitive advantages and relentless focus on disciplined execution enabled us to navigate the impacts of pandemic-related lockdowns in China, continued logistics constraints, and higher energy and raw material costs. As a result, we increased our cash flow and our share buybacks sequentially.

"We continued to progress our strategy to grow our underlying earnings over the economic cycle by investing in higher-return, faster-payback projects while capitalizing on long-term growth opportunities. As part of these efforts, today we announced a series of circularity projects that will enable us to achieve approximately two thirds of our 2030 'Stop the Waste' target as we capture growth for the sustainable and circular solutions our customers are increasingly demanding."

Packaging & Specialty Plastics segment net sales in the quarter were $8.2 billion, up 16% versus the year-ago period. Local price increased 14% year-over-year due to tight supply and demand balances, with gains in both businesses and in all regions. Continued strong end-market demand drove a 5% year-over-year volume increase, with gains in energy, infrastructure, and packaging applications. Currency decreased net sales by 3%. On a sequential basis, the segment delivered an 8% net sales increase, driven primarily by local price gains in both businesses and in all regions.

Equity earnings were $138 million, up $8 million compared to the year-ago period primarily due to the Sadara joint venture. On a sequential basis, equity earnings increased by $28 million on gains at Sadara and the Kuwait joint ventures.

Operating EBIT was $1.4 billion, compared to $2 billion in the year-ago period, as price increases were more than offset by rapidly rising raw material and energy costs. Sequentially, Op. EBIT was up $202 million and Op. EBIT margins increased by 120 basis points due to improved product mix and integrated margins which offset higher raw material and energy costs, primarily in the U.S. & Canada.

Packaging and Specialty Plastics business delivered a net sales increase versus the year-ago period due to both local price and volume gains. Prices increased across all key product chains, led by gains in functional polymers and volumes increased on strong demand growth in packaging end-markets and materials for renewable energy applications. Sequentially, the business increased revenue on price gains in all regions, primarily in industrial, consumer, and food packaging applications.

Hydrocarbons & Energy business delivered a net sales increase compared to the year-ago period, driven primarily by higher local prices for olefins and aromatics. Sequentially, sales increased due to higher olefin prices with gains in Europe and the U.S. & Canada.

Currency decreased net sales by 4%. Volume was down 6% year-over-year, as declines in Polyurethanes & Construction Chemicals were partly offset by gains in Industrial Solutions.

Polyurethanes & Construction Chemicals business net sales decreased compared to the year-ago period, as local price gains were more than offset by local currency and lower volume due to planned maintenance turnaround activity, third-party outages, and inflationary impacts on demand for consumer durables. Sequentially, net sales declined as lower volumes from planned maintenance turnaround activity and third-party outages were partly offset by higher local price.

Industrial Solutions business delivered a net sales increase compared to the year-ago period, with local price and volume gains in all regions.

Local price increased 28% year-over-year, with gains in both businesses and all regions. Currency decreased net sales by 3%. Volume declined 3% year-over-year, primarily due to the impact of pandemic-related lockdowns in China, which were partly offset by stronger demand for silicones and coatings applications in the U.S. & Canada. On a sequential basis, net sales were down 2%, as local currency impacts and lower volume in Europe and China were partly offset by strong consumer demand in the U.S. & Canada as well as higher seasonal demand for coatings applications.

Operating EBIT was $561 million, compared to $225 million in the year-ago period, as Op. EBIT margins expanded by 960 basis points primarily due to pricing gains for both silicones and coatings applications. Sequentially, Op. EBIT declined $34 million as lower siloxane prices in Europe and China were partly offset by margin expansion in Coatings & Performance Monomers.

Consumer Solutions business delivered higher net sales versus the year-ago period, with local price gains in all regions and end-market applications. Volume declined year-over-year as strong consumer demand in the U.S. & Canada was more than offset by the impact of pandemic-related lockdowns in China. Sequentially, net sales declined as volume gains from strong demand for building and construction, infrastructure, and mobility end markets were more than offset by lower siloxane volumes and prices in Europe and China.

Coatings & Performance Monomers business delivered increased net sales compared to the year-ago period, with local price gains in all regions. Despite increased supply availability in the U.S. & Canada, volume overall declined year-over-year primarily due to pandemic-related lockdowns in China. Sequentially, net sales increased with local price gains in all regions and increased volumes driven by strong seasonal demand in the U.S. & Canada.

OUTLOOK

Management uses these measures internally for planning, forecasting and evaluating the performance of the Company's segments, including allocating resources. Dow's management believes that these non-GAAP measures best reflect the ongoing performance of the Company during the periods presented and provide more relevant and meaningful information to investors as they provide insight with respect to ongoing operating results of the Company and a more useful comparison of year-over-year results. These non-GAAP measures supplement the Company's U.S. GAAP disclosures and should not be viewed as alternatives to U.S. GAAP measures of performance. Furthermore, such non-GAAP measures may not be consistent with similar measures provided or used by other companies. Non-GAAP measures included in this release are defined below. Reconciliations for these non-GAAP measures to U.S. GAAP are provided in the Selected Financial Information and Non-GAAP Measures section starting on page 11. Dow does not provide forward-looking U.S. GAAP financial measures or a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome of pending litigation, unusual gains and losses, foreign currency exchange gains or losses and potential future asset impairments, as well as discrete taxable events, without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could have a material impact on U.S. GAAP results for the guidance period.

Operating Earnings Per Share is defined as "Earnings per common share - diluted" excluding the after-tax impact of significant items.

Operating EBIT is defined as earnings (i.e., "Income before income taxes") before interest, excluding the impact of significant items.

Free Cash Flow is an integral financial measure used in the Company's financial planning process.
