Profile
(all figures in US$, except where noted)

Agrium is a major retail supplier of agricultural products and services in North and South America and a leading global producer and marketer of agricultural nutrients and industrial products. We produce and market three primary groups of nutrients: nitrogen, phosphate and potash as well as controlled-release fertilizers and micronutrients. A key differentiator of Agrium is that we are the only publicly traded company that crosses the entire agricultural value chain. This means that our focus on growth begins in our manufacturing facilities and extends to the fields where our customers use our products. Sales from our diverse portfolio of products and services generated $10.5 billion in revenues in 2010. Agrium has 157 million shares outstanding and a market capitalization of nearly $14.5-billion (as of December 31, 2010). Agrium employs over 14,000 people globally who are dedicated to the ongoing transformation of the Company to achieve our vision of being one of the worlds leading providers of inputs for plant growth by creating value for each of our stakeholders. Agrium divides the Company into three strategic business units: Our agricultural Retail division is the largest direct-to-grower agricultural retail operation in the Americas, and generated nearly $7.0-billion in net sales in 2010, primarily from seed, crop protection and crop nutrient products. We have raised the scale and size of our North American and South American retail operations by adding retail centers in Texas and New Mexico in late 2009, Western Canada throughout 2009, Argentina in July 2010 and Australia in 2010. As of June 2011, Agrium has a total of 970 retail locations in North America and South America. Our Wholesale division generated $3.7-billion in net sales in 2010. Wholesale manufactures, markets and distributes approximately 10.5 million tonnes of nitrogen, potash, phosphates, and other products annually. We service our customers through a network of close to 100 distribution warehouses, supplied by 14 major production facilities in addition to a number of smaller processing and specialty facilities. Our strengths include a low cost in-market position, the ability to leverage distribution, focus on continued incremental expansion at key facilities and growth in new product sales and product offerings. Agrium Advanced Technologies (AAT) offers premium environmentally beneficial controlled-release fertilizer and related products to the agriculture industry as well as professional turf, horticulture and consumer lawn and garden markets. AAT generated $390-million in net sales in 2010. AAT has a strong focus on product innovation.

2011-2012 FACT BOOK

History

Agrium was formed to facilitate the reorganization of the fertilizer division of Cominco Ltd. and the acquisition of the fertilizer assets of Alberta Energy Company in 1993. Agriums shares were first publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange on October 4th, 1996. Agrium established its Retail division through the acquisitions of Crop Production Services (CPS) in September 1994 and Western Farm Service (WFS) in January 1995. Also in 1995, Agrium established an international presence in Argentina under the trade name Agroservicios Pampeanos S.A. (ASP). In 2006, Agrium continued to build its Retail franchise through the acquisition of Royster-Clarks retail operations. Retail expansion continued in 2007 with the acquisition of ADMs 18 retail centers and 14 satellites in Kansas and Oklahoma. In 2008, Agrium completed the acquisition of United Agri Products (UAP), the Companys largest acquisition to date. This was a transforming transaction for Agrium, as the acquisition further expanded our retail presence in the United States, improved our earnings diversification by increasing the profit contribution from our Retail business unit and diversified Agriums product mix by increasing our weight in chemicals. Upon completion of the acquisition of UAP, Agriums retail branches in the United States increased from 489 locations to 826. Agrium continued its Retail division growth with the establishment of 65 retail outlets in Western Canada through a number of transactions in 2009 and 2010, and the acquisition of 24 retail outlets in Argentina in July 2010. Additionally, in December 2010, Agrium acquired AWB Limited (AWB). The AWB Landmark business is a leading agricultural retailer in Australia, with over 200 company operated retail locations, over 140 additional retail franchise and wholesale customer locations in Australia and investments in various joint venture companies. The growth of Agriums Wholesale business was initiated with the acquisition of Nu-West Industries, a phosphate producer in Idaho in 1995. Agrium subsequently merged with Viridian in December 1996, substantially increasing the size of the company. In 1997, Agrium announced the development of the phosphate rock reserve at Kapuskasing, Ontario to obtain a domestic rock supply for the Redwater facility. Production at the mine began in July 1999. In 1998, Agrium also acquired a phosphate rock mine located close to our Conda facility in Idaho to establish security of supply. Agrium acquired UNOCALs (Union Oil of California) agricultural products division in September of 2000. In 2000, Agrium expanded into the Argentina market with a 50 percent ownership in Profertil S.A. with production in Bahia Blanca, Argentina. In 2005, Agrium acquired the Western Canadian fertilizer distribution assets from Imperial Oil. In 2008, Agrium acquired a 70 percent equity position in Common Market Fertilizers S.A. (CMF), one of Western Europes largest fertilizer distribution companies; in April 2010 the remaining 30 percent was also acquired and CMF became Agrium Europe.

Agrium

History

In 2008, Agrium entered into an agreement with MISR Oil Processing Company, S.A.E. (MOPCO) of Egypt, whereby MOPCO acquired the previous EAgrium project, and EAgrium shareholders obtained an equity interest in the combined entity. Agrium owns a 26 percent interest in the combined entity, which includes a 675,000 tonne urea MOPCO facility. In late 2009, MOPCO secured financing for tripling the production of the existing nitrogen facility. In December 2010, Agrium acquired AWB Limited (AWB). With this addition, Agrium strengthened its international crop input sourcing capabilities through the Landmark business. In continuing this effort, in May, 2011 Agrium divested the AWB commodity management business to Cargill, Incorporated. Agriums Advanced Technologies business unit was established with the acquisition of Nu-Gros fertilizer technology and professional businesses and Pursell Technologies in 2006. In 2007, Agrium acquired a 19.5 percent equity interest in Hanfeng Evergreen, a Chinese specialty fertilizer company. With this addition, Agrium reaffirmed its leading position to provide environmentally friendly, controlledrelease crop input products to a broad range of customers and segments. Further expansion occurred in 2008 with the acquisition of the Agronomics Division of Turf Care Products Canada Limited. In 2010, AAT completed their construction of ESN coating fertilizer facility located in New Madrid, Missouri. In 2011 Agrium acquired Evergro Canada (Evergro) a leading manufacturer and distributor of horticultural and professional turf products in Western Canada. The acquisition will enable Agrium to expand its footprint within Canada, while enhancing its expertise in providing controlled release fertilizers, pest control and soil amendment products to the North American specialty marketplace. Additionally, Agrium acquired International Mineral Technologies (Tetra Micronutrients). Tetra Micronutrients is located in Fairbury, Nebraska and specializes in the production, marketing and distribution of custom liquid plant nutrition and dry micro nutrient products, predominantly zinc sulphate. In 2011 Agrium acquired a 100% equity position in CerealToscana S.A. gaining 90,000 tonnes of storage and key distribution assets in Europe. CerealToscana is an Italian based company with a subsidiary in Romania, Agroport, with an average EBITDA of $8-million over the past three years. This purchase increased Agriums dry and liquid storage capacity in Europe to 400,000 tonnes. Today, Agrium is a major retailer, a leading wholesale producer, and an innovator through our Advanced Technologies business unit fully diversifying ourselves across the value chain. As we enter 2012, Agrium will continue to focus on achieving our mission and vision by continuing to execute against our strategic goals of investing through the value chain, establishing and maintaining the lowest cost to serve wholesale position, diversifying geographically, and investing counter-cyclically.

South America Markets

Investing in South America provides an opportunity to grow where agriculture is growing. Our current operations, Profertil and Agroservicios Pampeanos (ASP), will allow us to leverage our strengths as we enter new markets. Brazil, Uruguay and Chile are key markets for expansion in South America beyond our Argentinian base. In 2009, we continued to grow by opening two retail farm branches in Uruguay. In 2010, ASP acquired 24 retail outlets and a formulation plant from DuPont in Argentina.

Argentina

Argentina is the second largest producer of crops in South America. Argentina has approximately 31 million hectares of arable land. The three major crops produced in Argentina are corn, wheat and soybeans. Nutrient consumption in 2010 was 350, 600 and 45 thousand metric tonnes of nitrogen, phosphate and potash, respectively. From 2010 to 2015, Argentinas annual growth rate for total nitrogen, phosphate and potash consumption is forecast to be approximately 3 percent. Agrium entered Argentina in 1995 as ASP fully owned, and in 2000 as a joint venture project with Repsol YPF SA.

Brazil

Brazil is one of the largest fertilizer import markets in the world. It is also one of the fastest growing markets in the world, with projected 4.5 percent compound annual growth rate between 2010 and 2015. Brazil has the fourth highest consumption of crop nutrients in the world and is the worlds third largest import market. Nutrient consumption in 2010 was 2.9mmt, 3.2mmt and 3.9mmt for nitrogen, potash and phosphate respectively. Looking forward, Brazil is one of the few countries in the world with an under-utilized land base and favourable climate to facilitate continued expansion of a cultivated land. Growth in seeded areas and yields is expected to increase Brazils agricultural production steadily for the foreseeable future. Brazil is expected to build on and enhance its production and export leadership of several agricultural products including sugarcane, corn, soybeans, beef, oranges, coffee and poultry.

Asia and Parts of the Pacific Rim Markets

China

China has the largest population in the world, with over 1.3 billion residents representing 20 percent of the global population. China has 8% of the worlds arable land at approximately 109 million hectares. China has the largest agricultural production in the world by volume. China is the worlds largest fertilizer market, accounting for nearly 30 percent of the worlds demand. Rising annual incomes of Chinas population are driving an improvement in diets and increasing the amount of grain, dairy, fruits and vegetables and meat consumed in China. Over the next ten to fifteen years we expect there will be an increased demand both on Chinas arable land and global crop nutrients as industrialization accelerates Chinas cropland loss. Our 19.5 percent investment in Hanfeng Evergreen Inc. allows Agrium to leverage off our expertise in the specialty fertilizer business and provides a platform for future growth in the important Chinese fertilizer and agriculture market.

India

Forecasts indicate that by 2025 India will become the 5th largest consumer economy in the world. While urbanization is not occurring as fast as some parts of Asia, urban population is expected to grow significantly. With this, comes a rising middle-class which is expected to surpass that of China over the next 10 years. Indias food consumption will increase with an increase in population and income, that will require an increase in agricultural production. This increase in agricultural production will increase demand for crop nutrients. India has approximately 158 million hectares of arable land. The major crops in India are rice paddy, wheat and sugar cane. Fertilizer consumption in 2010 was 16 mmt, 7 mmt and 4 mmt for nitrogen, phosphate and potash, respectively. From 2010 to 2015, Indias annual growth rate for total nitrogen, phosphate and potash consumption is estimated to be 2 percent, 2 percent and 5 percent respectively.

Australia

The $40-billion farm sector in Australia produces a variety of crops including grains, vegetables, sugar cane and pasture land for livestock. With a relatively small population of 22 million, Australia is a key exporter of wheat and barley into Asia and the Middle East. The three basic categories of fertilizers (nitrogen, phosphate and potash) are all used as crop inputs in Australia. Demand for specialty products has increased in recent years and many suppliers now offer such products to suit the specific purposes of individual end users. Australian fertilizer demand growth is expected to be similar to other mature markets such as North America, and relatively flat compared to historic trends. Fertilizer consumption in recent years has been below historical trend levels due to drought conditions, allowing for a potential bounce back through higher short-term growth rates.

AWB Acquisition

On December 3, 2010 Agrium successfully completed the acquisition of all of the shares of AWB Limited (AWB) for a value of AUD $1.50 per share, for a total price of approximately AUD $1.2 billion. AWB was Australias leading agribusiness company and employs over 2,200 people. AWB had two primary business streams: Rural Services and Commodity Management. Rural Services consisted of Landmark, one of Australias largest distributors of fertilizer and agricultural products. On May 11, 2011 Agrium sold the Commodity Management business of AWB. It was sold for $677-million including repayment of $363-million of working capital funding Agrium provided. This lowered the estimated net purchase price for Landmark retail operations to $0.8-billion after adjusting for the sale. This acquisition will allow Agrium to continue our strategy of growing our retail business. The acquisition of AWB provides Agrium with significant potential to enhance product and services to growers in Australia, through the Landmark division, by utilizing our international and fertilizing crop protection sourcing capabilities. There is also the potential to expand Agriums products and service offerings in North and South America. Landmarks longstanding reputation amongst Australian farmers complements Agriums global business and provides a stronger platform for Agriums growth, particularly in the South East Asian region.

European Markets

Europe produces a diversity of crops and engages in differing agricultural practices due to variety in climate and fertilization patterns across the continent. Europe consumed approximately 55 million tonnes of fertilizer and $10.6 bn in crop protection chemicals in 2010(1). In the EU-27(2)(3), there are approximately 82 million hectares of arable land, of which approximately 50 percent is cereals and 9.4 percent is oilseeds. The EU-15(3) is a growth market for environmentally friendly crop nutrient and crop protection products. In contrast, the countries in the EU-12(2) and Eastern Europe(3) are less mature in terms of application rates of nitrogen, phosphate and potash, meaning fertilizer consumption growth in these markets will stay relative to Western Europe. Fertilizer consumption in the EU-12 and Eastern Europe is expected grow in the range of products and consumption. Agrium entered Europe in 2008 with the purchase of a 70% interest in a diverse distribution network, Common Market Fertilizers, (CMF). In 2010 the remaining 30% of CMF was purchased by Agrium and became Agrium Europe. In May of 2011, Agrium Europes footprint was again enlarged with the purchase of Cereal Toscana in Northern Italy and Agroport in Romania. Headquartered in Brussels, Belgium, Agrium Europe employs approximately 120 people and has 9 sales offices in seven different countries. Agrium Europe purchases, distributes and sells 2.8 million metric tonnes of nitrogen, phosphate and potash fertilizers in France, Germany, Benelux, United Kingdom/Ireland, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, Romania and Africa. Agrium has access to 465 thousand metric tonnes of dry and liquid storage in Europe.

Africa and Middle Eastern Markets

Africa and the Middle East are markets with significant future growth potential. Our ownership interest in the MOPCO nitrogen facility in Egypt provides us with a strong presence in the region. In 2010, Africa and the Middle East consumed 5 mmt of Nitrogen, 2.2 mmt of Potash and 0.7 mmt of Phosphate. Egypt and Iran are the largest nutrient consumers in Africa and the Middle East. This region is especially important in production and exports, particularity nitrogen and phosphates. The top five producing countries (based on NPK nutrient tonnes) in the region are Egypt, Syria, Morocco, Iran and Saudi Arabia. Qatar and Egypt rank among the top 20 countries in the world in production of natural gas. Access to low-cost natural gas is expected to support the continued growth of nitrogen production in the Middle East. Agriculture contributes significantly to the GDP of Africa and the Middle East. Available arable land in Africa and the Middle East is approximately 223 million hectares and 40 million hectares respectively. The major crops of this region are corn, sorghum, wheat and millet. Corn is a major crop produced in both Africa and the Middle east, with 62.9 million tonnes produced in 2009 and approximately 30.6 million hectares harvested.

One bushel of corn yields approximately 2.8 gallons of ethanol. The key variables in determining ethanol plant profitability include ethanol and dried distillers grains and solubles (DDGS) prices for revenue corn; and natural gas prices for costs. As of September 2011, there were 209 ethanol plants operating in the United States, another 6 are currently under construction or are undergoing an expansion. Ethanol represents the second largest and fastest growing market for domestically produced corn, coming after livestock feed.

United States Biodiesel Facts


n n n n n

Approximately 18 percent of all soybean oil produced in the United States is projected to be used as biodiesel in 2011/2012. An acre of soybeans can produce about 63 gallons of biodiesel. An acre of canola can produced about 80 gallons. An acre of palm oil can produce about 8-9 times more biodiesel than an acre of soybeans. It takes 7.35 pounds of soyoil to make a gallon of biodiesel. One bushel of soybean yields approximately 11.5 pounds of soyoil.
