FMC Agricultural Solutions reported revenue of approximately $924 million in the third quarter of 2018, an increase of 67 percent year-over-year due to the strength of the DuPont acquisition.  On a pro forma basis, revenue increased 5 percent, with particularly strong demand and higher prices in Brazil. 

Segment earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $216 million increased 57 percent year-over-year and were $11 million above the midpoint of the prior guidance range.  In the important Brazil market, higher prices and hedging were able to offset 100 percent of the FX impact on earnings in the quarter. 

Full-year 2018 revenue for Agricultural Solutions is still forecasted to be in the range of $4.2 billion to $4.26 billion.  At the midpoint, this implies 10 percent year-over-year growth on a pro forma basis.  Full-year segment EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $1.195 billion to $1.215 billion, which is an increase of $5 million at the midpoint versus prior guidance.  In the fourth quarter, the company is expecting 12 percent year-over-year growth on a pro forma basis, driven by Brazil and Europe; segment revenue is forecasted to be in the range of $1.015 billion to $1.075 billion, and segment EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $280 million to $300 million.
