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, we 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.

Attached as Exhibit 99.1 are schedules presenting certain financial information of FMC after reclassifying our FMC Lithium segment to a discontinued operation for each quarterly period within our fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 as well as the full year fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.
