FMC CORPORATION (NYSE:FMC) Files An 8-K Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets
ITEM 2.01. COMPLETION OF ACQUISITION OR DISPOSITION OF ASSETS.

Story continues below

In March 2017, FMC Corporation (“FMC” or “we”) announced its intention to separate the FMC Lithium segment (subsequently renamed Livent Corporation, or “Livent”) into a publicly traded company. The initial step of the separation, the initial public offering (“IPO”) of Livent, closed on October15, 2018. In connection with the IPO, Livent had granted the underwriters an option to purchase additional shares of common stock to cover over-allotments at the IPO price, less the underwriting discount. On November 8, 2018, the underwriters exercised in full their option to purchase additional shares. After completion of the IPO and the underwriters’ exercise to purchase additional shares of common stock, FMC owned 123 million shares of Livent’s common stock, representing approximately 84 percent of the total outstanding shares of Livent’s common stock. On March 1, 2019, we completed the previously announced distribution of 123 million shares of common stock of Livent as a pro rata dividend on shares of FMC common stock outstanding at the close of business on the record date of February 25, 2019. In March 2019, as a result of the completed separation of Livent from FMC, our FMC Lithium segment was classified as a discontinued operation.
