Wall Street analysts forecast DuPont would deliver earnings per share of 10 cents on $5.31 billion in revenue, according to a Thomson Reuters.

Earlier this month, DuPont announced Edward Breen would take over as interim chairman and CEO after Ellen Kullman retired from the company effective Oct. 16.
