Balanced Capital Allocation

Balanced capital allocation – We have consistently deployed a balanced capital allocation strategy that includes investing in our business, selective and strategic M&A, share repurchases and paying an increased annual dividend for the past 26 consecutive years.

We are good stewards of capital with compelling performance targets – We are investing in the right projects. Our ROIC(3) has averaged over 13% per year for the past 5 years. We are selective in our acquisitions and equity investments typically investing in unique technology that we can leverage across our business and global commercial network. We believe in creating value for all stakeholders. Our short-term incentive plans are based on core sales growth and EBITDA growth and our long-term incentive plans, which grant restricted performance shares based on TSR and ROIC ensure our decisions are aligned with shareholders’ interests.
