Resolution from the International Trade Commission (ITC) on the Methionine case Alpharetta, GA / June 10, 2021

19

On June 10th, 2021, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) made an affirmative vote  in connection with the antidumping investigation of imports of Methionine from
France. Notwithstanding this outcome, Adisseo remains committed to the U.S. market as a
consistent and reliable supplier of Methionine hydroxy-analogue. Unfortunately, the extremely  restrictive nature of the tariffs on DL Methionine have forced Adisseo to exit this market segment,  further limiting choice of suppliers.

Adisseo is very disappointed with this decision, as it reduces the options available to U.S. purchasers  for methionine. The preliminary duties imposed by this investigation have already driven up cost  substantially, cutting into margins for domestic animal protein producers, adding cost to the grocery  bill for U.S. customers, and impacting the competitiveness of U.S. meat producers in export markets.

Globally, Adisseo has proven to be a leader in Methionine production, and continues to invest in  new capacity & technology, to feed a growing planet.
