3M Co., St. Paul, Minn., expects to contribute between $100 million and $200 million to its global defined benefit plans in 2019, the company disclosed in a 10-K filing with the SEC on Friday.
In 2018, 3M contributed $254 million to its U.S. pension plans and $112 million to its non-U.S. pension plans.
3M did not break the expected 2019 contributions down by region. It said in the filing that it "does not have a required minimum cash pension contribution obligation for its U.S. plans in 2019" and that "future contributions will depend on market conditions, interest rates and other factors."
3M has more than 70 defined benefit plans in 26 countries, the company noted in the filing.
