Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE:FCX) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Story continues below

On January 24, 2019, Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FCX) issued a press release announcing its fourth-quarter and year ended 2018 financial and operating results, referencing supplementary schedules, a copy of which was furnished with FCX’s Current Report on Form 8-K (Item 2.02) filed on January 24, 2019. This amendment is being filed solely for the purpose of revising certain information as described herein.

Subsequent to issuing its January 24, 2019, press release and prior to filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, FCX determined that an adjustment is required related to the application of relevant accounting rules to reflect the impact on deferred tax liabilities of the change in PT Freeport Indonesia’s (PT-FI’s) statutory tax rates associated with its special mining license granted on December 21, 2018.

The adjustment to PT-FI’s deferred tax liability increased fourth-quarter net income by $345 million and resulted in net income attributable to common stock totaling $485 million ($0.33 per share) in fourth-quarter 2018 and $2.6 billion ($1.78 per share) for the year 2018. The adjustment had no effect on net operating cash flows or fourth-quarter adjusted net income attributable to common stock of $161 million ($0.11 per share), as reported in FCX’s January 24, 2019, press release.

The impact of the adjustment is shown in the table below and is reflected in the revised supplemental schedules pages IV through VIII, which supersede and replace supplemental schedules pages IV through VIII of FCX’s January 24, 2019, press release. The revised pages of the supplemental schedules are included in Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
