SASKATOON, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. 
(PotashCorp) today announced earnings for third-quarter 2013 are expected to 
approximate $0.41 per share(1). 
The change primarily reflects lower than forecasted potash sales volumes late 
in the quarter as buyers continued to defer significant purchases amidst 
near-term market uncertainty. 
Additional discussion around third-quarter results, as well as full-year 
guidance will be addressed in our third-quarter news release and conference 
call on October 24, 2013. 
1. All references to per-share amounts pertain to diluted net income 
per share.
