FREEPORT-McMoRan INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

NOTE 1. GENERAL INFORMATION

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and do not include all information and disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States (U.S.). Therefore, this information should be read in conjunction with Freeport-McMoRan Inc.’s (FCX) consolidated financial statements and notes contained in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 (2018 Form 10-K). The information furnished herein reflects all adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods reported. All such adjustments are, in the opinion of management, of a normal recurring nature. Operating results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019.

Attribution of PT Freeport Indonesia (PT-FI) Net Income. FCX has concluded that the attribution of PT-FI’s net income or loss from the date of the divestment transaction (i.e., December 21, 2018) through December 31, 2022 (the Initial Period), should be based on the economics replacement agreement, which provides for FCX and the other pre-transaction PT-FI shareholders (i.e., PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Persero) (PT Inalum) and PT Indonesia Papua Metal Dan Mineral (PTI)) to retain the economics of the revenue and cost sharing arrangements under PT-FI’s joint venture formerly with Rio Tinto plc (refer to Note 2 of FCX’s 2018 Form 10-K). The economics replacement agreement entitles FCX to approximately 81 percent of PT-FI dividends paid during the Initial Period, with the remaining 19 percent paid to the noncontrolling interests. For first-quarter 2019, PT-FI’s net income totaled $52 million, of which $43 million was attributed to FCX. PT-FI’s cumulative net loss since the December 21, 2018, transaction date through March 31, 2019, totaled $(84) million, of which $(68) million was attributed to FCX.

The above-described attribution of PT-FI’s net income or loss applies only through the Initial Period. Beginning January 1, 2023, the attribution of PT-FI’s net income or loss will be based on equity ownership percentages (48.76 percent for FCX, 26.24 percent for PT Inalum and 25.00 percent for PTI). For all of its other partially owned consolidated subsidiaries, FCX attributes net income or loss based on equity ownership percentages.

NOTE 2. EARNINGS PER SHARE

FCX calculates its basic net income per share of common stock under the two-class method and calculates its diluted net income per share of common stock using the more dilutive of the two-class method or the treasury-stock method. Basic net income per share of common stock was computed by dividing net income attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share of common stock was calculated by including the basic weighted-average shares of common stock outstanding adjusted for the effects of all potential dilutive shares of common stock, unless their effect would be anti-dilutive.

Reconciliations of net income and weighted-average shares of common stock outstanding for purposes of calculating basic and diluted net income per share follow (in millions, except per share amounts):

FCX recorded charges for adjustments to cobalt metals inventory carrying values of $57 million in first-quarter 2019 because of lower cobalt prices.

NOTE 4. INCOME TAXES

Variations in the relative proportions of jurisdictional income result in fluctuations to FCX’s consolidated effective income tax rate. FCX’s consolidated effective income tax rate was 57 percent for first-quarter 2019 and 38 percent for first-quarter 2018. Geographic sources of FCX’s benefit from (provision for) income taxes follow (in millions):

FCX's first-quarter 2019 consolidated effective income tax rate is a function of the combined effective tax rates for the jurisdictions in which FCX operates, excluding the U.S. jurisdiction. Because FCX's U.S. jurisdiction generated net losses in first-quarter 2019 that will not result in a realized tax benefit, applicable accounting rules require FCX to adjust its estimated annual effective tax rate to exclude the impact of U.S. net losses.

Revolving Credit Facility. At March 31, 2019, there were no borrowings outstanding and $13 million in letters of credit issued under FCX’s revolving credit facility, resulting in availability of approximately $3.5 billion, of which approximately $1.5 billion could be used for additional letters of credit.
 
On May 2, 2019, FCX’s $3.5 billion revolving credit facility was amended to extend $3.26 billion of the facility by one year to April 20, 2024. The remaining $240 million matures on April 20, 2023 (the scheduled maturity date). In addition, the revolving credit facility was amended to modify the calculation of the total debt component used to determine the total leverage ratio by increasing the amount of unrestricted cash that may be applied to reduce the amount of total debt. There were no other substantive modifications to the revolving credit facility.

Senior Notes.  On March 27, 2019, FCX redeemed all of its outstanding $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 3.100% Senior Notes due 2020. Holders of these senior notes received the principal amount together with the redemption premium and accrued and unpaid interest up to the redemption date. As a result of this redemption, FCX recorded a loss on early extinguishment of debt totaling $5 million in first-quarter 2019.

Cerro Verde Credit Facility.  In March 2019, Cerro Verde prepaid $200 million of its credit facility, which resulted in a $1 million loss recorded to early extinguishment of debt.

Interest Expense, Net. Consolidated interest costs totaled $178 million in first-quarter 2019 and $176 million in first-quarter 2018. Capitalized interest added to property, plant, equipment and mine development costs, net, totaled $32 million in first-quarter 2019 and $25 million in first-quarter 2018.

Common Stock.  On March 27, 2019, FCX declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share on its common stock, which was paid on May 1, 2019, to common stockholders of record as of April 15, 2019.

NOTE 6. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

FCX does not purchase, hold or sell derivative financial instruments unless there is an existing asset or obligation, or it anticipates a future activity that is likely to occur and will result in exposure to market risks, which FCX intends to offset or mitigate. FCX does not enter into any derivative financial instruments for speculative purposes, but has entered into derivative financial instruments in limited instances to achieve specific objectives. These objectives principally relate to managing risks associated with commodity price changes, foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates.

Commodity Contracts.  From time to time, FCX has entered into derivative contracts to hedge the market risk associated with fluctuations in the prices of commodities it purchases and sells. Derivative financial instruments used by FCX to manage its risks do not contain credit risk-related contingent provisions. As of March 31, 2019, and December 31, 2018, FCX had no price protection contracts relating to its mine production. A discussion of FCX’s derivative contracts and programs follows.

Derivatives Designated as Hedging Instruments – Fair Value Hedges
Copper Futures and Swap Contracts. Some of FCX’s U.S. copper rod customers request a fixed market price instead of the Commodity Exchange Inc. (COMEX) average copper price in the month of shipment. FCX hedges this price exposure in a manner that allows it to receive the COMEX average price in the month of shipment while the customers pay the fixed price they requested. FCX accomplishes this by entering into copper futures or swap contracts. Hedging gains or losses from these copper futures and swap contracts are recorded in revenues. FCX did not have any significant gains or losses resulting from hedge ineffectiveness during the three-month periods ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. At March 31, 2019, FCX held copper futures and swap contracts that qualified for hedge accounting for 66 million pounds at an average contract price of $2.81 per pound, with maturities through November 2020.

A summary of gains (losses) recognized in revenues for derivative financial instruments related to commodity contracts that are designated and qualify as fair value hedge transactions, including the unrealized (losses) gains on the related hedged item follows (in millions):

Derivatives Not Designated as Hedging Instruments
Embedded Derivatives. Certain FCX concentrate, copper cathode and gold sales contracts provide for provisional pricing primarily based on the London Metal Exchange (LME) copper price or the COMEX copper price and the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) gold price at the time of shipment as specified in the contract. FCX receives market prices based on prices in the specified future month, which results in price fluctuations recorded in revenues until the date of settlement. FCX records revenues and invoices customers at the time of shipment based on then-current LME or COMEX copper prices and the LBMA gold prices as specified in the contracts, which results in an embedded derivative (i.e., a pricing mechanism that is finalized after the time of delivery) that is required to be bifurcated from the host contract. The host contract is the sale of the metals contained in the concentrate or cathode at the then-current LME or COMEX copper price, and the LBMA gold price. FCX applies the normal purchases and normal sales scope exception in accordance with derivatives and hedge accounting guidance to the host contract in its concentrate or cathode sales agreements since these contracts do not allow for net settlement and always result in physical delivery. The embedded derivative does not qualify for hedge accounting and is adjusted to fair value through earnings each period, using the period-end LME or COMEX copper forward prices and the adjusted LBMA gold prices, until the date of final pricing. Similarly, FCX purchases copper and cobalt under contracts that provide for provisional pricing. Mark-to-market price fluctuations from these embedded derivatives are recorded through the settlement date and are reflected in revenues for sales contracts and in inventory for purchase contracts.

Copper Forward Contracts. Atlantic Copper, FCX’s wholly owned smelting and refining unit in Spain, enters into copper forward contracts designed to hedge its copper price risk whenever its physical purchases and sales pricing periods do not match. These economic hedge transactions are intended to hedge against changes in copper prices, with the mark-to-market hedging gains or losses recorded in cost of sales. At March 31, 2019, Atlantic Copper held net copper forward purchase contracts for 11 million pounds at an average contract price of $2.92 per pound, with maturities through June 2019.
