FMC Corp. Analyst Notes

On March 10, 2014, FMC Corp. (FMC) reported that it plans to separate into two
independent public companies - "New FMC," which will be made up of FMC's
Agricultural Solutions and Health and Nutrition segments, and "FMC Minerals,"
which will be made up of FMC's current Minerals segment. FMC anticipates that
the separation will be finalized in early 2015, and each company is expected
to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Pierre Brondeau, FMC President,
CEO and Chairman, commented, "Our decision to separate into two independent
companies is a natural progression of our strategy. We believe that creating
two companies, each with its own publicly-listed equity, will enable the
management of each company to pursue its own strategy. This will give each
company greater focus on the success factors that are most important to its
business and allow the adoption of a capital structure that is appropriate to
its business profile." The full analyst notes on FMC Corp. are available to
