CHICAGO, June 13, 2013

CHICAGO, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Deutsche Bank Global Industrial
and Basic Materials conference today, DuPont (NYSE: DD) Executive Vice
President and Chief Financial Officer Nicholas C. Fanandakis reported that
DuPont's goal is to generate superior shareholder returns and increase the
value of the company by aggressively advancing its three strategic priorities:

  oExtending its leadership in high-value, science-driven segments of the
    agriculture-to-food value chains;
  oStrengthening and growing DuPont's leading position as a provider of
    differentiated, high-value advanced materials, and;
  oDeveloping world-leading industrial biotechnology capabilities that create
    transformational, new bio-based businesses.

"Our strategic priorities are clear and we are aggressively advancing them to
continue delivering shareholder value," Fanandakis said. "We are on track
with our three operational priorities: increasing return on innovation,
expanding our global reach and continuing to deliver significant productivity
gains.

"We are leveraging our science capabilities across businesses and markets to
address some of the world's most pressing challenges. Science is the growth
engine of DuPont. Our integrated science gives us an advantage unlike any
other company to deliver value to customers and shareholders," Fanandakis
said.

Fanandakis also addressed current business conditions. "Unseasonably cool,
wet weather across North America and Europe is impacting our Agriculture and
Nutrition & Health segments' second-quarter revenues and costs. March to May
2013 has been the wettest spring in nearly 120 years across the farm belt
states of Iowa, Illinois and Indiana," Fanandakis said.

As a result, the company expects its first half operating EPS to be about 10
percent below last year versus the 7-9 percent lower year-over-year outlook
communicated April 23. For the full-year 2013, DuPont expects operating EPS
to be at the low end of its previously issued guidance range of $3.85 - $4.05
per share, based on anticipated improvement in global industrial market
demand. DuPont will report its second-quarter financial results on July 23.

Fanandakis presents today at the Deutsche Bank Global Industrial and Basic
