2018 Calculations

1 Retention rate = (Net income attributable to DuPont – Dividends declared on common stock – Preferred stock dividends) ÷ (Net income attributable to DuPont – Preferred stock dividends)
= (3,8443,4910) ÷ (3,8440) = 0.09

2 Profit margin = 100 × (Net income attributable to DuPont – Preferred stock dividends) ÷ Net sales
= 100 × (3,8440) ÷ 85,977 = 4.47%

3 Asset turnover = Net sales ÷ Total assets
= 85,977 ÷ 188,030 = 0.46

4 Financial leverage = Total assets ÷ Total DuPont’s stockholders’ equity
= 188,030 ÷ 94,571 = 1.99

5 g = Retention rate × Profit margin × Asset turnover × Financial leverage
= 0.21 × 7.21% × 0.59 × 2.54 = 2.26%

#### FCFE growth rate (g) implied by single-stage model

g = 100 × (Equity market value0 × r – FCFE0) ÷ (Equity market value0 + FCFE0)
= 100 × (47,293 × 15.48%7,423) ÷ (47,293 + 7,423) = -0.19%

where:
Equity market value0 = current market value of DuPont de Nemours Inc.’s common stock (US\$ in millions)
FCFE0 = the last year DuPont de Nemours Inc.’s free cash flow to equity (US\$ in millions)
r = required rate of return on DuPont de Nemours Inc.’s common stock

1 g1 2.26%
2 g2 1.65%

4 g4 0.42%
5 and thereafter g5 -0.19%

where:
g1 is implied by PRAT model
g5 is implied by single-stage model
g2, g3 and g4 are calculated using linear interpoltion between g1 and g5

Calculations

g2 = g1 + (g5g1) × (2 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 2.26% + (-0.19%2.26%) × (2 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1) = 1.65%

g3 = g1 + (g5g1) × (3 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 2.26% + (-0.19%2.26%) × (3 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1) = 1.04%

g4 = g1 + (g5g1) × (4 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1)
= 2.26% + (-0.19%2.26%) × (4 – 1) ÷ (5 – 1) = 0.42%
