Canpotex Shareholder Update


Following the Agrium and PotashCorp merger of equals, Canpotex’s shareholders now consist of Mosaic and Nutrien.  These two shareholders each have an equal ownership in Canpotex and equal representation on the Canpotex Board of Directors.

This change will have no impact on Canpotex’s business or operations.  Canpotex’s experienced management team will continue, as it always has, to sell and deliver potash to customers in overseas markets with its world-class marketing and logistics expertise.  Potash marketed and delivered overseas by Canpotex will continue to be sourced from potash-producing mines in Saskatchewan, Canada owned and operated by Mosaic and Nutrien.
