Yara reports improved results reflecting higher margins

Oslo, 8 February 2018: Yara today meets with investors and analysts for its Capital Markets Day presentation.

"We will present Yara's industry backdrop and strategy, focusing on our improvement and growth programs. We will also present financial scenarios", says Svein Tore Holsether, President and Chief Executive Officer of Yara.

Yara scenarios are not a prediction of future results, but are "what if" examples based on selected fertilizer and energy price scenarios and Yara's current business.

A run rate scenario reflecting current market prices translates into an estimated Earnings Per Share (EPS) of USD 2.7. A scenario using average 2015 prices translates into an estimated Earnings Per Share (EPS) of USD 4.4. Adding Yara's committed growth and improvement pipeline adds an additional estimated USD 1.4 per share by 2020.

"We remain focused on strengthening our own operations, by delivering the improvement and growth programs, and by growing knowledge through technology and innovation", says
Svein Tore Holsether, President and Chief Executive Officer of Yara.
