Yara International ASA : Yara AGM and new buy-back program

          Yara International ASA : Yara AGM and new buy-back program

Oslo (2013-04-18): Yara International ASA will hold its Annual General Meeting
on Monday 13 May at 18:00 CEST at Bygdøy allé 2, Oslo. The Nomination
Committee proposes Geir Isaksen as a new Board member, and the Board asks the
General Meeting to authorize a new share buy-back program.

The Nomination Committee proposes the election of Geir Isaksen as a new Board
member. Isaksen is a Norwegian citizen and CEO of NSB (Norwegian State
Railways) since 2011, prior to which he was CEO of Cermaq ASA.

The Board proposes that the existing buy-back program is replaced by a new
program, authorizing the Board to acquire up to 5% of Yara's shares before the
next Annual General Meeting. Shares may be purchased within a price range of
NOK 10 to NOK 1,000. The shares may either be used for cancellation or as
payment in commercial transactions. The company has entered into a new
agreement with the Norwegian State to redeem shares on a pro-rata basis so
that the State's ownership is unchanged in the event of a cancellation of the
shares bought back.

The complete notice of the Annual General Meeting will be distributed to
Yara's registered shareholders and is also available on Yara's website
