____________________ 
(1)
Income taxes are not provided on the equity in undistributed earnings of our foreign subsidiaries or affiliates since it is our intention that such earnings will remain invested in those affiliates indefinitely, however, see Note 15 regarding the impact from the sale of our discontinued FMC Health and Nutrition segment on certain of these foreign subsidiaries. The amount for 2017 includes reclassification to net income due to the divestiture of our Omega-3 business. See Note 10 for more information. In accordance with accounting guidance, this amount was previously factored into the lower of cost or fair value test associated with the 2017 Omega-3 asset held for sale write-down charges.
(2)
At December 31 of each year, we remeasure our pension and postretirement plan obligations at which time we record any actuarial gains (losses) and prior service (costs) credits to other comprehensive income. The interim adjustments noted above typically reflect the foreign currency translation impacts from the unrealized actuarial gains (losses) and prior service (costs) credits related to our foreign pension and postretirement plans. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017 due to the announced plans to divest of FMC Health and Nutrition business, we triggered a curtailment of our U.S. pension plans. As a result, we revalued our pension plans which resulted in adjustments to comprehensive income. See Note 14 for more information.
(3)
For more detail on the components of these reclassifications and the affected line item in the condensed consolidated statements of income (loss) see Note 13.

FMC CORPORATION
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)

Note 1: Financial Information and Accounting Policies
In our opinion the condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) applicable to interim period financial statements and reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, and our financial positions as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016. All such adjustments included herein are of a normal, recurring nature unless otherwise disclosed in the Notes. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for the full year. The condensed consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, and the related condensed consolidated statements of income (loss) and condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, have been reviewed by our independent registered public accountants. The review is described more fully in their report included herein. Our accounting policies are set forth in detail in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included with our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2016 (the “2016 10-K”).

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to current year's presentation.

FMC Health and Nutrition:
In March 2017, our FMC Health and Nutrition segment was classified as a discontinued operation. For more information on our discontinued operations see Note 10. We have recast all the data within this filing to present FMC Health and Nutrition as a discontinued operation retrospectively for all periods presented.

In August 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815). This ASU amends and simplifies existing hedge accounting guidance and allows for more hedging strategies to be eligible for hedge accounting. In addition, the ASU amends disclosure requirements and how hedge effectiveness is assessed. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 (i.e. a January 1, 2019 effective date), with early adoption permitted in any interim period after issuance of this ASU. We are evaluating the effect the guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements.

In May 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-09, Stock Compensation - Scope of Modification Accounting. This ASU provides guidance on which changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award require an entity to apply modification accounting in Topic 718. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 (i.e. a January 1, 2018 effective date). We believe the adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In March 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-07, Compensation - Retirement Benefits (Topic 715): Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost. This ASU provides requirements for presentation and disclosure of service and other components of net benefit cost on the financial statements. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 (i.e. a January 1, 2018 effective date). We believe the adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements other than potential changes to the presentation of net periodic pension and postretirement benefit costs on our consolidated financial statements.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. This ASU changes the subsequent measurement of goodwill impairment by eliminating Step 2 from the impairment test. Under the new guidance, an entity will measure impairment using the difference between the carrying amount and the fair value of the reporting unit. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 (i.e. a January 1, 2020 effective date), with early adoption permitted for goodwill impairment tests with measurement dates after January 1, 2017. We believe the adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-01, Business Combinations. This new ASU clarified the definition of a business with the objective of adding guidance to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 (i.e. a

January 1, 2018 effective date) and will be applied prospectively. We will continue to assess the effects the amendments in this ASU will have on future transactions of acquisitions or disposals.

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-16, Income Taxes (Topic 740), Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory. Under the new guidance, an entity will recognize the income tax consequences of an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017 (i.e. a January 1, 2018 effective date), with early adoption permitted only in the first quarter of a fiscal year. Based on an initial assessment, we believe the adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statements of Cash Flows (Topic 230), Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. This ASU addresses eight specific cash flow issues with the goal of reducing the existing diversity in practice in how certain cash receipts and cash payments are both presented and classified in the statement of cash flows. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years (i.e. a January 1, 2018 effective date), with early adoption permitted. We have reviewed the eight cash flow issues and do not believe there will be any significant changes to FMC and our presentation of certain cash receipts and payments within our consolidated cash flow statement.

In June 2016, the FASB issued No. ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. ASU 2016-13 replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses. The update is intended to provide financial statement users with more decision-useful information about the expected credit losses on financial instruments and other commitments to extend credit held by a reporting entity at each reporting date. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 (i.e. a January 1, 2020 effective date), with early adoption permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. We are evaluating the effect the guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements.

In February 2016, the FASB issued its new lease accounting guidance in ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842).  Under the new guidance, lessees will be required to recognize for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) a lease liability, which is a lessee's obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis and a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee's right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years (i.e. a January 1, 2019 effective date). We are in the process of determining the transition plan and evaluating the effect the guidance will have on our consolidated financial statements.

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, which amends the guidance in U.S. GAAP on the classification and measurement of financial instruments. Changes to the current guidance primarily affect the accounting for equity investments, financial liabilities under the fair value option, and the presentation and disclosure requirements for financial instruments. The new standard is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017 (i.e. a January 1, 2018 effective date), and upon adoption, an entity should apply the amendments by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet at the beginning of the first reporting period in which the guidance is effective. Early adoption is not permitted except for the provision to record fair value changes for financial liabilities under the fair value option resulting from instrument-specific credit risk in other comprehensive income. Based on an initial assessment, we believe the adoption will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which requires an entity to recognize the amount of revenue to which it expects to be entitled for the transfer of promised goods or services to customers. This guidance will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance in U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective. We intend to adopt this standard for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017 (i.e. a January 1, 2018 effective date). The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. We expect to apply the modified retrospective adoption method. While we are still evaluating the effect that ASU 2014-09 will have on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures, we have performed an impact assessment by analyzing certain of our existing material revenue transactions and arrangements, and do not expect material changes to our current policies related to the timing of revenue recognition and the accounting for costs. However, the standard will impact our disclosures by requiring further disaggregation of revenue. We are in the process of developing our new footnote disclosures required under the new standard. Due to the transaction with E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, we will perform further impact assessments and assess the impact of this standard related to the acquired

business. Additionally, we are in the process of assessing any potential impacts on our internal controls and processes related to both the implementation and ongoing compliance of the new guidance.

Recently adopted accounting guidance
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718) ("ASU 2016-09"). ASU 2016-09 identifies areas for simplification involving several aspects of accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as equity or liabilities, an option to recognize gross stock compensation expense with actual forfeitures recognized as they occur, as well as certain classifications on the statement of cash flows. The new standard was effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those years (i.e. a January 1, 2017 effective date). We adopted this standard prospectively beginning in 2017. The adoption impacted our recognition of excess tax benefit, which is recorded within provision for income taxes on the condensed consolidated statements of income. Additionally, the presentation of excess tax benefit on our condensed consolidated statements of cash flows was impacted as it is now shown within cash flows from operating activities. The excess tax benefit recognized within provision for income taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 was approximately $1.0 million and $2.3 million, respectively.

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory. This standard changes the criteria by which to measure inventory. Prior to the issuance of this new standard, inventory was measured at the lower of cost or market value. This required three separate data points in order to measure inventory. The three data points were cost, market with a ceiling of net realizable value and market with a floor of net realizable value less a normal profit margin. This amendment eliminates the two data points defining "market" and replaces them with one, net realizable value. Net realizable value is the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation. This amendment does not impact inventory measured using last-in, first-out. This standard was effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, (i.e. a January 1, 2017 effective date). We adopted this standard beginning in 2017. The adoption did not have an impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Note 3: Acquisitions
DuPont Crop Protection
On March 31, 2017, we entered into a definitive Transaction Agreement (the “Transaction Agreement”) with E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (“DuPont"). On November 1, 2017, pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in the Transaction Agreement, we completed the acquisition of certain assets relating to DuPont's Crop Protection business and research and development ("R&D") organization ("DuPont Crop Protection Business") (collectively, the "Acquisition"). In connection with this transaction, we sold to DuPont our FMC Health and Nutrition segment and paid DuPont $1.2 billion in cash. The Transaction Agreement also contained a provision for working capital adjustments. Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2017, the DuPont Crop Protection Business will be integrated into our FMC Agricultural Solutions segment and included within our results of operations. The Acquisition was partially funded with the 2017 Term Loan Facility which was secured for the purposes of the Acquisition. See Note 9 for more details.
In connection with the Acquisition, we entered into a customary transitional services agreement with DuPont to provide for the orderly separation and transition of various functions and processes. These services will be provided by DuPont to us for up to 24 months after closing, with an optional six months extension. These services include information technology services, accounting, human resource and facility services among other services, while we assume the operations of the DuPont Crop Protection Business.

We will apply acquisition accounting under the U.S. GAAP business combinations guidance. Acquisition accounting requires, among other things, that assets acquired and liabilities assumed be recognized at their fair values as of the acquisition date. The net assets of the Acquisition will be recorded at the estimated fair values using primarily Level 2 and Level 3 inputs (see Note 16 for an explanation of Level 2 and Level 3 inputs). In valuing acquired assets and assumed liabilities, valuation inputs include an estimate of future cash flows and discount rates based on the internal rate of return and the weighted average rate of return.

We have not completed the detailed valuation work necessary to determine the estimates of the fair value of the acquired assets and assumed liabilities. As a result, we have not determined the preliminary allocation of the purchase price. We also have not completed the detailed analysis to present the pro forma financial information for the combined businesses. As such, both the preliminary allocation of the purchase price as well as the pro forma financial information will be included in our future filings. Certain manufacturing sites and a R&D site will be transferred to us at a later date due to various local timing constraints; however,

10


FMC CORPORATION
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited) — (Continued)

we will still obtain the economic benefit from these sites during the period from November 1, 2017 to when the sites legally transfer. No additional consideration will be paid at the date of transfer.
In the third quarter, both the European Commission and Competition Commission of India had conditionally approved our acquisition of certain assets of DuPont’s Crop Protection business. The Acquisition was conditioned upon us divesting the portfolio of products required by the respective remedies. These remedies are expected to impact FMC Agricultural Solutions’ annual 2018 operating profit by approximately $15 million. We are in active negotiations to divest the portfolio of products required by the European Commission within the required timeframe.

We perform our goodwill and indefinite life intangible asset impairment tests at least annually. Our fiscal year 2017 annual goodwill and indefinite life intangible asset impairment test was performed during the three months ended September 30, 2017. As a result, we determined no goodwill impairment existed and that the fair value was substantially in excess of the carrying value for each of our goodwill reporting units.

The company has non-current receivables that represent long-term customer receivable balances related to past due accounts which are not expected to be collected within the current year. The net long-term customer receivables were $99.1 million as of September 30, 2017. These long-term customer receivable balances and the corresponding allowance are included in "Other assets" on the condensed consolidated balance sheet.

A portion of these long-term receivables have payment contracts. We have no reason to believe payments will not be made based upon the credit quality of these customers. Additionally, we also hold significant collateral against these customers including rights to property or other assets as a form of credit guarantee. If the customer does not pay or gives indication that they will not pay, these guarantees allow us to start legal action to block the sale of the customer’s harvest. On an ongoing basis, we continue to evaluate the credit quality of our non-current receivables using aging of receivables, collection experience and write-offs, as well as evaluating existing economic conditions, to determine if an additional allowance is necessary.

Argentina Devaluation
On December 17, 2015, the Argentina government initiated actions to significantly devalue its currency. These actions continued into a portion of the first quarter of 2016. These actions created an immediate loss associated with the impacts of the remeasurement of our local balance sheet. The loss was attributable to our FMC Lithium and FMC Agricultural Solutions operations. Due to the severity of the event and its immediate impact to our operations in the country, the charge associated with the remeasurement was included within "Restructuring and other charges (income)" in our condensed consolidated income statement during the period.  We believe these actions have ended and do not expect further charges for remeasurement to be included within restructuring and other charges. 

Other items, Net
Other items, net for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 primarily relate to exit costs resulting from the termination and de-consolidation of our interest in a variable interest entity that was previously consolidated and was part of our FMC Agricultural Solutions segment.

Letters of credit outstanding under our Revolving Credit Facility totaled $136.1 million and available funds under this facility were $1,355.5 million at September 30, 2017.

Term Loan Facility
On November 1, 2017, we borrowed $1.5 billion under our previously announced senior unsecured term loan facility ("2017 Term Loan Facility"). The proceeds of the borrowing were used to finance the Acquisition and will also be used to pay anticipated taxes associated with the gain on the sale of FMC Health and Nutrition.
The scheduled maturity of the 2017 Term Loan Facility is on the fifth anniversary of this closing date. The 2017 Term Loan Facility will bear interest at a floating rate, which will be a base rate or a Eurocurrency rate equal to the London interbank offered rate for the relevant interest period, plus in each case an applicable margin, as determined in accordance with the provisions of the related agreement to the 2017 Term Loan Facility. The base rate will be the highest of: the rate of interest announced publicly by Citibank, N.A. in New York, New York from time to time as its “base rate”; the federal funds effective rate plus 1/2 of one percent; and the Eurocurrency rate for a one-month period plus one percent.
The 2017 Term Loan Facility contains financial and other covenants, including a maximum leverage ratio of 4.75 and minimum interest coverage ratio of 3.5 immediately following the Acquisition. The 2017 Term Loan Facility also contains a cross-default provision whereby a default under our other indebtedness in excess of $50 million, after grace periods and absent a waiver from the lenders, would be an event of default under the agreement of the 2017 Term Loan Facility and could result in a demand for payment of all amounts outstanding under this facility.

Revolving Credit Facility
On May 2, 2017, we entered into an amended and restated credit agreement (the "Revolving Credit Agreement"). The unsecured Revolving Credit Agreement provides for a $1.5 billion revolving credit facility, with an option, subject to certain conditions and limitations, to increase the aggregate amount of the revolving credit commitments to $2.25 billion (the "Revolving Credit Facility"). The current termination date of the Revolving Credit Facility is May 2, 2022.
Revolving loans under the Revolving Credit Facility will bear interest at a floating rate, which will be a base rate or a Eurocurrency rate equal to the London interbank offered rate for the relevant interest period, plus, in each case, an applicable margin, as determined in accordance with the provisions of the Revolving Credit Agreement. The base rate will be the highest of: the rate of interest announced publicly by Citibank, N.A. in New York, New York from time to time as its “base rate”; the federal funds effective rate plus 1/2 of 1 percent; and the Eurocurrency rate for a one-month period plus 1 percent. We are also required to pay a facility fee on the average daily amount (whether used or unused) at a rate per annum equal to an applicable percentage in effect from time to time for the facility fee, as determined in accordance with the provisions of the Revolving Credit Agreement. The initial facility fee is 0.15 percent per annum. The applicable margin and the facility fee are subject to adjustment as provided in the Revolving Credit Agreement.

FMC CORPORATION
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited) — (Continued)

The Revolving Credit Agreement contains customary financial and other covenants, including a maximum leverage ratio and minimum interest coverage ratio. The financial covenant levels have been amended in order to permit the debt incurred under the 2017 Term Loan Facility discussed above along with certain other changes to permit the expected transaction.
Fees incurred to secure the Revolving Credit Facility have been deferred and will be amortized over the term of the arrangement.

Covenants
Among other restrictions, our Revolving Credit Facility and both 2014 and 2017 Term Loan Facilities contain financial covenants applicable to FMC and its consolidated subsidiaries related to leverage (measured as the ratio of debt to adjusted earnings) and interest coverage (measured as the ratio of adjusted earnings to interest expense). Our actual leverage for the four consecutive quarters ended September 30, 2017 was 2.6, which is below the maximum leverage of 3.5 at September 30, 2017. Our actual interest coverage for the four consecutive quarters ended September 30, 2017 was 8.2, which is above the minimum interest coverage of 3.5. We were in compliance with all covenants at September 30, 2017.

Note 10: Discontinued Operations
FMC Health and Nutrition:
On August 1, 2017, we completed the sale of the Omega-3 business to Pelagia AS for $38 million.
On November 1, 2017, we completed the previously disclosed sale of our FMC Health and Nutrition business to DuPont. In connection with the sale, we entered into a customary transitional services agreement with DuPont to provide for the orderly separation and transition of various functions and processes. These services will be provided by us to DuPont for up to 24 months after closing, with an optional six months extension. These services include information technology services, accounting, human resource and facility services among other services, while DuPont assumes the operations of FMC Health and Nutrition.
Assets held for sale under U.S. GAAP are required to be reported at the lower of carrying value or fair value, less costs to sell.  We expected a significant gain on the FMC Health and Nutrition assets sold to DuPont and therefore these assets held for sale were reported at their carrying value. However, the fair value of the Omega-3 business, which was previously part of the broader FMC Health and Nutrition reporting unit, was significantly less than its carrying value, which included accumulated foreign currency translation adjustments that were subsequently reclassified to earnings after completion of the sale. As a result, we recorded an impairment charge of approximately $171 million ($151 million, net of tax) during the six months ended June 30, 2017 to reflect the definitive agreement. As the sale occurred August 1, 2017, the charge was revised to reflect the sales price less the carrying value at the sale date. The impairment charge for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was approximately $168 million ($148 million, net of tax).

These recorded recoveries represent probable realization of claims against U.S. government agencies and are recorded as an offset to our environmental reserves in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

The estimated reasonably possible environmental loss contingencies, net of expected recoveries, exceed amounts accrued by approximately $240 million at September 30, 2017. This reasonably possible estimate is based upon information available as of the date of the filing but the actual future losses may be higher given the uncertainties regarding the status of laws, regulations, enforcement policies, the impact of potentially responsible parties, technology and information related to individual sites. Potential environmental obligations that have not been reserved may be material to any one quarter's or year's results of operations in the future. However, we believe any such liability arising from such potential environmental obligations is not likely to have a material adverse effect on our liquidity or financial condition as it may be satisfied over many years.

A more complete description of our environmental contingencies and the nature of our potential obligations are included in Notes 1 and 10 to our consolidated financial statements in our 2016 Form 10-K. See Note 10 to our consolidated financial statements in our 2016 Form 10-K for a description of significant updates to material environmental sites.  There have been no significant updates since the information included in our 2016 Form 10-K other than the update provided below.

Middleport
As disclosed in our 2016 Form 10-K, our reserve continues to include the estimated liability for clean-up to reflect the costs associated with our recommended Corrective Measure Alternatives for the Operable Units for which FMC has completed Corrective Measures Studies, including estimates for the proposed remedy for the southern portion of the tributary, which is one of the discrete contaminated areas of the site. In the third quarter of 2017, we increased the reserve by $25.0 million, which reflects our best estimate for remediation costs associated with the southern portion of the tributary. The increased costs were based on estimates for proposed remediation alternatives developed through a work study requested by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ("NYSDEC") that was completed in the third quarter of 2017. This increase has been reflected within the environmental reserves balance above.
Middleport Litigation
In the federal court action before the United States District Court for the Western District of New York, FMC responded to the Court’s dismissal of FMC’s action by filing a Motion to Vacate Judgment and For Leave to Amend Complaint on March 2, 2017. The purpose of this motion is to allow FMC to amend its Complaint to add a citizen’s suit under RCRA against the United States for the Environmental Protection Agency's ("EPA") failure to perform its non-discretionary duties under the 1991 Administrative Order on Consent ("AOC"). Simultaneously, FMC served the EPA with a 60-day notice letter, which is a procedural precursor to filing the citizen’s suit complaint.
In the NYSDEC appeal, the Court denied FMC’s motion to strike portions of NYSDEC's brief that were items outside the record on appeal. Both FMC and NYSDEC have submitted their briefs on the appeal and oral argument is anticipated to occur in early 2018.

Pocatello Tribal Litigation
As discussed in our 2016 Form 10-K, FMC owns the Pocatello property on the Shoshone-Bannock Tribal Reservation. For the past 12 years, we have litigated in the Shoshone-Bannock Tribal Court system and the United States District Court for the District of Idaho concerning the Tribes’ attempts to regulate our activities within the Reservation. Refer to the 2016 Form 10-K for more information on the history of this matter. We have continued to include the costs related to an adverse decision in this matter within our reasonably possible estimates.

On September 28, 2017, the District Court issued a decision finding that the Tribal Court has jurisdiction over FMC to require FMC to pay a $1.5 million per year fee to the Tribes for hazardous wastes “stored” on the Reservation. We do not believe it is probable that we will incur a loss for this matter due to legal principles established by the United States Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that we believe were not followed by the District Court. Our reasonably possible estimate continues to include the estimated costs of an adverse decision and does not need to be adjusted as a result of the District Court's decision. On October 12, 2017, we filed a notice of appeal to the Ninth Circuit. The District Court Judgment has been stayed pending the outcome of the appeal to the Ninth Circuit.

Note 12: Earnings Per Share
Earnings per common share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period on a basic and diluted basis.
Our potentially dilutive securities include potential common shares related to our stock options, restricted stock and restricted stock units. Diluted earnings per share (“Diluted EPS”) considers the impact of potentially dilutive securities except in periods in which there is a loss from continuing operations because the inclusion of the potential common shares would have an antidilutive effect. Diluted EPS excludes the impact of potential common shares related to our stock options in periods in which the option

21


FMC CORPORATION
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited) — (Continued)

exercise price is greater than the average market price of our common stock for the period. There were no potential common shares excluded from Diluted EPS for the three months ended September 30, 2017. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, there were 0.2 million potential common shares excluded from Diluted EPS. There were 1.2 million and 1.9 million potential common shares excluded from Diluted EPS for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively.
Our non-vested restricted stock awards contain rights to receive non-forfeitable dividends, and thus, are participating securities requiring the two-class method of computing EPS. The two-class method determines EPS by dividing the sum of distributed earnings to common stockholders and undistributed earnings allocated to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period. In calculating the two-class method, undistributed earnings are allocated to both common shares and participating securities based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period.
Earnings applicable to common stock and common stock shares used in the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share are as follows:
