FMC Corp.’s stock FMC rose 1.4% premarket Thursday, after the agricultural science company set guidance for 2024. The Philadelphia-based company said it expects revenue of $4.65 billion to $4.85 billion, or up 3% midpoint to midpoint from its latest guidance for 2023. The FactSet consensus is for 2024 revenue of $4.79 billion. It expects adjusted Ebitda of $1.025 billion to $1.125 billion, or up 8% from guidance for 2023, while adjusted per-share earnings are expected to grow faster than that metric. The company is targeting return on invested capital of more 10%. For 2026, the company is reaching for revenue of $5.5 billion to $6.0 billion. FMC will hold an investor day later Thursday to further outline its restructuring plan. The company cut its guidance in October to reflect weakness in Latin America.
