Immediately following the distribution of Corteva common stock on June 1, 2019, DuPont completed a 1-for-3 reverse stock split and as a result, DuPont common stockholders now hold one share of common stock of DuPont for every three shares of DowDuPont common stock held prior to the reverse stock split.
