SASKATOON, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - 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.

Notes:

1. All references to per-share amounts pertain to diluted net income per
   share.
