Agrium Reports Third Quarter Results

Agrium Reports Third Quarter Results 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/05/13 --  
ALL AMOUNTS ARE STATED IN U.S.$ 
Agrium Inc. (TSX:AGU) (NYSE:AGU) announced today consolidated net
earnings ("net earnings") of $76-million ($0.52 diluted earnings per
share) for the third quarter of 2013, compared with net earnings of
$129-million in the third quarter of 2012 ($0.80 diluted earnings per
share).  
The 2013 third quarter results included a pre-tax share based
payments recovery of $21-million ($0.11 diluted earnings per share),
a write-down on our Hanfeng Evergreen Inc. investment of $12-million
($0.08 diluted earnings per share) and a loss of $2-million ($0.01
diluted earnings per share) on natural gas and other hedge positions.
Excluding these items, net earnings would have been $73-million
($0.50 diluted earnings per share).(1) 
(1) Third quarter effective tax rate of 25 percent was used for
adjusted diluted earnings per share calculation, excluding the
write-down on Hanfeng Evergreen Inc. as there was no tax impact. 
"Agrium's Retail business unit had one of its strongest third
quarters on record, with EBITDA(2) of $147-million. This was driven
largely by high usage of crop protection products and related
application services in our North American market. The late growing
season in North America, combined with uncertainty in the fertilizer
markets caused many customers to delay crop nutrient purchases,"
commented Mike Wilson, Agrium's President and CEO. 
(2) See "Additional and Non-IFRS Measures" in our 2013 third quarter
Management's Discussion and Analysis.  
"Additionally, unplanned lost production due to outages at our
Redwater and Carseland facilities reduced product availability in the
third quarter and will impact fourth quarter sales volumes. This is
expected to impact fourth quarter earnings by approximately $0.20 per
share," added Mr. Wilson. 
"Despite any short term factors or market fluctuations, we continued
to demonstrate our confidence in the ability of the business to
generate excess cash flow through the commodity cycle by
substantially increasing the dividend in the third quarter and
continuing to execute on our share buy-back program," concluded Mr.
Wilson. 
Agrium is providing guidance for the fourth quarter of 2013 of $0.80
to $1.25 diluted earnings per share. This excludes gains or losses on
foreign exchange and derivative hedge positions, Retail operating
results for acquired Viterra assets and related integration costs and
purchase price adjustments, and share-based payments expense in our
estimated fourth quarter results.(3)

Uncertainties" in our 2013 third quarter Management's Discussion and
Analysis and additional assumptions outlined on the following page.

Sales 
Sales increased by $37-million to $2.9-billion for the third quarter
of 2013 and decreased $66-million to $13.1-billion for the first nine
months of 2013 compared to the third quarter and first nine months of
2012, respectively. Factors that affected our performance during the
third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012 include
the following: 


 
--  Retail sales increased by 15 percent to $2.1-billion as there was a
    return to a more regular seasonal crop input demand for the current
    quarter compared to the 2012 earlier spring season which shifted sales
    typically earned from the third quarter into the first half for crop
    nutrients and crop protection products. The increase was complemented by
    incremental sales from recently acquired Retail locations; 
--  Wholesale sales decreased by 24 percent to $752-million due to lower
    realized sales prices across all products, lower urea sales volumes
    resulting from plant outages at our nitrogen facilities which lowered
    product available for sale and lower phosphate sales volumes; and 
--  Advanced Technologies ("AAT") sales decreased by 14 percent to $108-
    million largely due to lower Environmentally Smart Nitrogen ("ESN")
    volumes and sales prices as a result of the soft urea market. 

 
Gross Profit 
Our gross profit for the third quarter of 2013 was $641-million, a
decrease of $98-million compared to the third quarter of 2012. The
main drivers of this variance consist of: 


 
--  Wholesale's gross profit decreased by $176-million to $123-million for
    the third quarter of 2013, compared to the third quarter of 2012
    primarily as a result of weaker sales prices for urea, phosphate and
    potash coupled with lower sales volumes of urea and phosphate due to
    production outages and weaker market conditions; and 
--  Retail's gross profit increased by $73-million to $511-million for the
    third quarter of 2013, compared to the third quarter of 2012 as a result
    of increased crop protection sales volumes due to a return to regular
    seasonal demand compared to last year's early spring season which
    shifted sales traditionally earned in the third quarter into the second
    quarter of 2012. In addition, there was an increase in gross profit on
    application services which is consistent with increased volumes in crop
    nutrients and crop protection products. 

 
Expenses 
Expenses decreased $38-million for the third quarter of 2013 compared
to the third quarter of 2012. This difference is primarily a result
of the following items: 


 
--  A $74-million favorable change in share-based payments, with a $21-
    million share-based payments recovery in the current quarter compared to
    a $53-million charge in the same period last year (see section "Other"
    for further discussion); and 
--  A $30-million decrease in other expenses included a favorable change
    related to environmental remediation and asset retirement obligation
    expenses incurred in the third quarter of 2012 of $49-million with no
    corresponding charge in the third quarter of 2013. This was partially
    reduced by a $12-million unfavorable change in other expenses caused by
    the recognition of an impairment in our investment in Hanfeng Evergreen
    Inc. ("Hanfeng"). 

 
The above decreases were partially offset by: 


 
--  An increase in Retail selling expenses of $48-million which was driven
    by increased sales activity this quarter and costs associated with
    Retail locations acquired in 2012 (see section "Retail" for further
    discussion); and 
--  Decreased earnings of $32-million from Wholesale's equity accounted
    investment in Argentina (see section "Wholesale" for further
    discussion). 

 
The following table is a summary of our other expenses (income) for
the third quarter and first nine months of 2013 and 2012,
respectively.

Effective Tax Rate 
The effective tax rate was 25 percent for the third quarter compared
to 22 percent for the same period last year due to an increase in
income earned in higher taxed jurisdictions. The effective tax rate
was 27 percent for the first nine months of 2013 and remained
unchanged as compared to the same period last year. 
Retail  
Retail reported third quarter sales of $2.1-billion, an increase of
15 percent compared to sales of $1.8-billion reported in the same
quarter last year. Gross profit was $511-million in the third quarter
of 2013, a $73-million increase from last year's third quarter.
Similarly, Retail reported EBITDA of $147-million, up from
$121-million reported in the third quarter of last year. Stronger
year-over-year sales and gross profit results were evident across all
products and services, despite lower average nutrient prices and
margins this year. This was due to a more normal summer growing
season in the U.S. relative to the drought conditions experienced in
the same period last year and incremental sales from recently
acquired Retail locations. 
Crop nutrient sales were $654-million this quarter, compared to
$634-million in the third quarter of 2012. A 14 percent increase in
nutrient sales volumes in the quarter were largely offset by lower
nutrient prices. Gross profit for crop nutrients was $116-million
this quarter, an increase of $5-million compared to the $111-million
reported in the third quarter of 2012. Total crop nutrient margins as
a percentage of sales were 17.7 percent in the third quarter of 2013,
just slightly higher than the 17.5 percent reported in the same
quarter last year. However, per tonne nutrient margins were down 9
percent from the third quarter of 2012. 
Crop protection sales were $1.1-billion in the third quarter of 2013,
compared to $872-million in sales in the same period last year. The
increase was driven primarily by greater sales volumes of fungicides
and herbicides. Gross profit this quarter was $248-million, an
increase of $46-million over the $202-million reported in the third
quarter of 2012. This is attributable to increased volumes and a
favorable product mix. Total crop protection margins as a percentage
of sales were 23 percent this quarter, up slightly from the same
period last year. 2013 year-to-date crop protection margins as a
percentage of sales were 21 percent, on par with the same period last
year. 
Seed sales were $69-million in the third quarter of 2013, up 23
percent from the $56-million reported in the third quarter of last
year. In North America, higher seed sales were partly due to the
later spring planting season, which shifted some sales volumes into
the third quarter. This particularly affected soybean sales volumes,
as the delayed spring wheat harvest subsequently delayed the double
crop planting of soybeans. Gross profit was $30-million this quarter,
up from the $28-million reported last year. Seed margins as a
percentage of sales were 43 percent in the third quarter of 2013,
marginally lower from the same period for 2012. Year-to-date in 2013,
seed sales are up 7 percent and margins are slightly higher at 18
percent than the same period last year. 
Sales of merchandise in the third quarter of 2013 were $122-million,
compared to $105-million in the same period last year. Gross profit
for this product line was $19-million this quarter, compared to
$17-million reported in the third quarter of 2012. The improvement is
related to additional sales volumes in animal health and other
livestock-related products in Australia. 
Services and other sales were $205-million this quarter, compared to
the $167-million reported in the third quarter of 2012. Gross profit
was $98-million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $80-million
for the same period last year. These increases relate to a shift in
earnings from the second quarter to the third quarter in North
America and are consistent with the higher North American nutrient
and crop protection sales volumes.  
Selling expenses as a percentage of sales was 19.7 percent in the
third quarter of 2013 which is down marginally from the 20 percent
reported in the same period last year. Retail selling expenses were
$416-million for the third quarter, compared to $368-million in the
same period last year. The majority of this variance was due to
increased costs resulting from recent acquisitions as well as an
increase in variable people costs consistent with the higher sales
and earnings in the third quarter.  
Wholesale  
Wholesale's 2013 third quarter sales were $752-million, down
$234-million from the same quarter last year. Gross profit was
$123-million this quarter, compared to $299-million in the third
quarter of 2012. Wholesale reported EBITDA of $130-million in the
third quarter of 2013, down from the $348-million reported in the
same period last year. Wholesale's Adjusted EBITDA(1) was
$143-million this quarter, compared to $376-million reported in the
same period last year. Wholesale EBIT this quarter was $198-million
lower than in the third quarter of last year. Wholesale's results
this quarter were impacted by lower realized sales prices across all
products, as well as lower phosphate and nitrogen sales volumes due
to outages at our Carseland and Redwater nitrogen facilities in
addition to slow market demand.  
(1)Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings (loss) before finance
costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and before finance
costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization of joint ventures. 
Nitrogen gross profit in the third quarter of 2013 was $76-million,
compared to $215-million in the same quarter last year. Nitrogen
sales volumes were 636,000 tonnes in the third quarter of 2013, down
183,000 tonnes from the same period last year, partly due to outages
at our Carseland and Redwater nitrogen facilities. Realized sales
prices for all nitrogen products were lower than the third quarter of
last year, with urea realized sales prices down 23 percent, or $133
per tonne year-over-year. Nitrogen cost of product sold was $331 per
tonne this quarter, compared to $255 per tonne reported in the third
quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily due to expenses
associated with the outages at our Carseland and Redwater facilities,
which equated to approximately $35-million, and higher natural gas
costs. Our average nitrogen gross margins were $119 per tonne this
quarter, compared to $262 per tonne in the same period last year.  
Agrium's average natural gas cost in cost of product sold was
$2.78/MMBtu this quarter ($3.16/MMBtu including the impact of
realized losses on natural gas derivatives), compared to $2.46/MMBtu
for the same period in 2012 ($2.72/MMBtu including the impact of
realized losses on natural g
as derivatives). Hedging gains or losses
are included in other expenses and not cost of product sold, thus are
not part of the calculation of gross profit. The U.S. benchmark
(NYMEX) natural gas price for the third quarter of 2013 was
$3.60/MMBtu, compared to $2.81/MMBtu in the same quarter last year.
The AECO (Alberta) basis differential was a $0.91/MMBtu discount to
NYMEX in the third quarter of 2013, compared to the $0.62/MMBtu
discount in the third quarter of 2012.  
Potash gross profit for the third quarter of 2013 was $27-million,
compared to $23-million reported in the same quarter last year. The
increase was primarily driven by higher sales volumes and lower cost
of production, partly offset by significantly lower sales prices. The
increase in volumes and lower cost of production was a result of a
return to a traditional two week turnaround at our Vanscoy facility
in the third quarter, compared to last year's eight week planned
turnaround associated with our brownfield expansion project.
International sales volumes were 84,000 tonnes this quarter, up from
the 43,000 tonnes reported in the third quarter of last year, but
below the previous three year average of 174,000 tonnes (2009-2011
period). Domestic sales volumes were 181,000 tonnes this quarter,
compared to 117,000 tonnes in the third quarter of 2012 and above the
previous three year average of 160,000 tonnes (2009-2011 period). The
higher sales volumes were largely offset by a 31 percent reduction in
realized sales prices compared to the prior year. Potash cost of
product sold was $246 per tonne this quarter compared to $363 per
tonne reported in the third quarter of 2012, due to the shorter
turnaround this year. Gross margin was $103 per tonne in the third
quarter of 2013, compared to the $140 per tonne in the same quarter
of 2012. 
Phosphate gross profit was $7-million in the third quarter of 2013,
compared to $47-million in the same quarter last year. The decrease
resulted from a combination of lower realized sales prices, higher
cost of production and lower sales volumes due to weaker market
conditions. Phosphate sales volumes this quarter were 192,000 tonnes,
a 26 percent decline from the third quarter of last year, due to a
slow start to the fall season. Realized phosphate sales prices were
$633 per tonne this quarter, a $70 per tonne decrease from the $703
per tonne realized in the same quarter last year. Phosphate cost of
product sold was $595 per tonne in the third quarter of 2013, an
increase from $519 per tonne in the same period last year. The
increase was primarily a result of higher rock costs associated with
the switch to imported rock, as well as higher ammonia costs. Gross
margin was $38 per tonne in the third quarter of 2013, compared to
$184 per tonne in the same period last year. 
Gross profit from ammonium sulfate and other was $12-million this
quarter, a reduction of $5-million from the same period last year as
a result of lower realized sales prices. 
Product purchased for resale gross profit was $1-million this
quarter, compared to a loss of $3-million in the third quarter of
2012.  
Wholesale expenses in the third quarter of 2013 were $32-million,
compared to $10-million in the third quarter of 2012. The higher net
expense was primarily due to lower earnings from our equity
investment in Argentina, as the Profertil S.A. ("Profertil") facility
faced lower global urea prices and an increase in gas supply
interruptions this year. The facility experienced 57 days of downtime
this quarter compared to 24 days in the third quarter of last year,
which reduced production and tonnes available for sale as well as
increased costs per tonne. 
Advanced Technologies 
AAT reported a quarterly gross profit of $12-million in the third
quarter of 2013, a decrease of $16-million from the $28-million
reported in the same period last year. EBITDA was a loss of
$5-million in the third quarter, a $9-million decrease from the same
period last year, including Courtright coating facility closure costs
amounting to $5-million recorded in the third quarter of 2012. The
lower year-over-year results were primarily due to weak ESN demand as
a result of weak grower demand related to volatility in the
agricultural and crop input markets and a later fall application
season than last year.  
Other 
EBITDA for our Other non-operating business unit for the third
quarter of 2013 was a loss of $28-million, compared to a loss of
$157-million for the third quarter of 2012. The favorable change was
primarily driven by: 


 
--  A $74-million favorable change in share-based payments, where there was
    a $21-million recovery in the third quarter of 2013 compared to a $53-
    million charge in the third quarter of 2012. This was largely caused by
    a depreciation of our share price during the third quarter of 2013
    compared to an appreciation of our share price during the third quarter
    of 2012; 
--  A $49-million favorable change in environmental remediation and asset
    retirement obligation expenses incurred in the third quarter of 2012
    with no corresponding charge in the third quarter of 2013; and 
--  A $21-million increase in gross profit for the three months at September
    30, 2013 compared to the three months at September 30, 2012 which
    reflected less inter-segment inventory held in our Retail business unit
    not yet sold to external customers. 

 
The above factors were partially offset by a $12-million impairment
of our investment in Hanfeng.

The sources and uses of cash for the nine months ended September 30,
2013 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2012 are
summarized below: 


 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cash provided by operating activities - Drivers behind the $554-million     
 source of cash decrease                                                    
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Use of cash    $180-million decrease in consolidated net earnings.          
                                                                            
               $181-million decrease in non-cash items, resulting primarily 
               from a change of $161-million in share-based payments coupled
               with an increase in deferred income taxes recovery of $40-   
               million. This was offset by an increase in depreciation and  
               amortization of $33-million and a decrease in earnings from  
               associates and joint ventures of $30-million during the first
               nine months of 2013.                                         
                                                                            
               $217-million increase in non-cash working capital. The       
               increase was primarily driven by a greater decrease in       
               accounts payable offset by a lower increase in accounts      
               receivable and greater decrease in prepaid expenses and      
               deposits during the first nine months of 2013 versus the     
               first nine months of 2012. The large decrease in payables for

(i) 2012 results have been restated to reflect the adoption of IFRS
11 Joint Arrangements requiring equity accounting for joint ventures.
2011 results have not been restated. 
The agricultural products business is seasonal in nature.
Consequently, comparisons made on a year-over-year basis are more
appropriate than quarter-over-quarter. Crop input sales are primarily
concentrated in the spring and fall crop input application seasons,
which are in the second quarter and fourth quarter. Crop nutrient
inventories are normally accumulated leading up to each application
season. Our cash collections generally occur after the application
season is complete. 
BUSINESS ACQUISITION 
We acquired certain agri-products assets of Viterra from Glencore on
October 1, 2013. The acquired assets include over 200 retail farm
centers in Canada and Australia. We have engaged an independent
valuation firm to assist us in determining the fair value of the
assets acquired, liabilities assumed, including contingent
liabilities and provisions, and related deferred income tax impacts.
The valuation is in progress; however a provisional purchase price
allocation is not yet available due to the inherent complexity of the
valuations and the short time frame following the closing date. We
expect the excess of the estimated fair value of the net assets
acquired over the purchase price will result in a purchase gain in
the three months ended December 31, 2013. Refer to note 4 of the
Summarized Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for further
information. 
NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID 
On May 14, 2013, the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") accepted Agrium's
notice of intention to make a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB")
whereby Agrium may purchase up to 7,472,587 common shares on the TSX
and New York Stock Exchange during the period from May 21, 2013 to
May 20, 2014 with a daily purchase limit of 133,301 common shares on
the TSX. During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we
purchased approximately 2.7 million shares at an average share price
of $87 for total consideration of approximately $233-million under
our NCIB. From October 1, 2013 to October 31, 2013, we purchased
approximately 2.2 million shares at an average share price of $85 for
total consideration of approximately $191-million. Refer to note 10
of the Summarized Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for
further information. 
ADDITIONAL AND NON-IFRS FINANCIAL MEASURES 
In the discussion of our performance for the quarter, in addition to
the primary measures of earnings and earnings per share reported in
accordance with IFRS, we make reference to EBITDA (earnings (loss)
before finance costs, income taxes, depreciation and amortization)
and Adjusted EBITDA (earnings (loss) before finance costs, income
taxes, depreciation and amortization and before finance costs, income
taxes, depreciation and amortization of joint ventures). We consider
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be useful measures of performance
because income tax jurisdictions and business segments are not
synonymous and we believe that allocation of income tax charges
distorts the comparability of historical performance for the
different business segments. Similarly, financing and related
interest charges cannot be allocated to all business units on a basis
that is meaningful for comparison with other companies. 
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized measures under IFRS,
and our method of calculation may not be comparable to other
companies. In addition, these measures should not be used as
alternatives to earnings before finance costs and income taxes
("EBIT") as determined in accordance with IFRS. 
The following table is a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
to EBIT:

Supplemental Information 5, Selected Financial Measures, also
provides certain ratios that are not recognized measures under IFRS
and our method of calculation may not be comparable to that of other
companies. Ratio definitions are provided in Supplemental Information
6, Accompanying Notes to Supplemental Information. Return on
operating capital employed and return on capital employed presented
in Supplemental Information 5 are measures classified as additional
IFRS financial measure
s, where they reflect Consolidated Agrium. We
consider these measures to provide useful information to both
management and investors in measuring our financial performance and
financial condition. 
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING JUDGMENTS AND ESTIMATES 
We prepare our financial statements in accordance with IFRS, which
requires us to make assumptions and estimates about future events and
apply significant judgments. We base our assumptions, estimates and
judgments on our historical experience, current trends and all
available information that we believe is relevant at the time we
prepare the financial statements. However, future events and their
effects cannot be determined with certainty. Accordingly, as
confirming events occur, actual results could ultimately differ from
our assumptions and estimates. Such differences could be material.
For further information on the Company's critical accounting
judgments and estimates, refer to the section "Critical Accounting
Judgments and Estimates" of our 2012 annual Management's Discussion
and Analysis, which is contained in our 2012 Annual Report. Since the
date of our 2012 annual Management's Discussion and Analysis, there
have not been any significant changes to our critical accounting
judgments and estimates. 
CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES 
Effective January 1, 2013, Agrium adopted IFRS 11 Joint Arrangements
whereby the classification and accounting of our investment in
Profertil and other joint arrangements previously accounted for using
the proportionate consolidation method are accounted for using the
equity method. 2012 figures have been restated and additional
information has been provided in the Supplemental Information tables
to display the results of our joint ventures. Adjusted EBITDA has
been added to show our results before finance costs, income taxes,
depreciation and amortization of our joint ventures. Refer to note 3
of the Summarized Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for
further information. 
For information regarding changes in accounting policies, refer to
the section "Accounting Standards and Policy Changes Not Yet
Implemented" of our 2012 annual Management's Discussion and Analysis,
which is contained in our 2012 Annual Report. 
BUSINESS RISKS 
The information presented on Enterprise Risk Management and Key
Business Risks on pages 74 - 77 in our 2012 Annual Report has not
changed materially since December 31, 2012. 
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES 
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial
reporting during the quarter ended September 30, 2013 that have
materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect,
our internal control over financial reporting. 
PUBLIC SECURITIES FILINGS 
Additional information about our company, including our 2012 Annual
Information Form is filed with the Canadian securities regulatory
authorities through SEDAR at www.sedar.com and with the U.S.
securities regulatory authorities through EDGAR at www.sec.gov. 
OUTLOOK, KEY RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES 
Global production of almost all major field crops is expected to
increase in 2013/14, driven primarily by improved growing conditions
in the U.S. and former Soviet Union. While official revisions to U.S.
corn and soybean yields were not made in October due to the U.S.
government shut-down, reports from the field indicate that yields are
at or above expectations. In Western Canada, yields of almost all of
the major crops are expected to break records this year. Stronger
yields help offset the financial impact from lower crop prices and
also increased nutrient removal, which are expected to support strong
North American application rates in the 2013/14 fertilizer year. Crop
nutrient costs are also more affordable than they have been over the
recent past.  
Strength in demand for crop protection products is expected to
continue to be strong in the fourth quarter and into next spring.
Growth in demand for crop protection products continues to be
supported by increased use of alternative active ingredients to
glyphosate in order to counter increased weed resistance to
glyphosate, as well as the continued trend toward greater use of
fungicides. As harvest wraps up, growers are evaluating 2013 yield
results in order to make decisions on 2014 seed varieties. 
Nitrogen prices have been relatively steady over the past couple of
months at levels close to Chinese production costs. Nitrogen prices
receive support given the Chinese urea low tax export season ended
October 31, 2013 and Chinese export volumes in November and December
are expected to be lower than they were in 2012. Indian urea import
demand has been significantly higher than 2012 levels, driven by a
favorable monsoon season. U.S. offshore urea imports were
approximately 40 percent behind 2012 levels in the third quarter of
2013 while U.S. corn area is expected to decline in 2014, which may
result in a 2 percent to 4 percent reduction in nitrogen demand this
year. The net impact of these factors is an expectation for a higher
pace of U.S. urea imports in the coming months to meet short-term
demand. 
The potash market has been impacted by significant market uncertainty
throughout the third quarter, leading to reduced prices and cautious
purchasing behavior that has extended into the fourth quarter in most
international markets. Several factors contributed to the
uncertainty, including the dissolution of the Belarusian Potash
Company, the delay in second half Chinese supply agreements, and the
timing of deliveries on Indian contract purchases. Global potash
fundamentals remain challenging entering the fourth quarter of 2013
on continued elevated inventories and the expectation that the pace
of Brazilian potash imports may decline given an expected reduction
in the size of the second corn crop which is planted in January. The
outlook for U.S. demand in the fourth quarter of 2013 is more
positive as fall potash application rates are expected to be solid.  
Phosphate prices declined throughout the third quarter of 2013, as
buyers purchased product on a just-in-time basis and global market
conditions are likely to remain under pressure in the fourth quarter.
Indian demand has been a major source of uncertainty, as the
devaluation of the Indian rupee and delayed government subsidy
payments have been barriers to imports. While Brazilian DAP/MAP
imports set a full-year record by the end of September, the pace of
imports is expected to slow in the fourth quarter. However, U.S.
phosphate application rates are expected to be supported by high crop
yields and affordable nutrient prices.  
Forward-Looking Statements 
Certain statements and other information included in this MD&A
constitute "forward-looking information" and "financial outlook"
within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation or
constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of
applicable U.S. securities legislation (collectively, the
"forward-looking statements"). All statements in this MD&A, other
than those relating to historical information or current conditions,
are forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to,
statements as to management's expectations with respect to: future
crop and crop input volumes, demand, margins, prices and sales;
business and financial prospects; dividends and other plans,
strategies, objectives and expectations, including with respect to
future operations of Agrium and proposed acquisitions and
divestitures and the growth and stability of our earnings. These
forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and
uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which could
cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking
statements.  
All of the forward-looking statements are qualified by the
assumptions that are stated or inherent in such forward-looking
statements, including the assumptions listed below. Although Agrium
believes that these assumptions are reasonable, this list is not
exhaustive of the factors that may a
ffect any of the forward-looking
statements and the reader should not place an undue reliance on these
assumptions and such forward-looking statements. The key assumptions
that have been made in connection with the forward-looking statements
include Agrium's ability to successfully integrate and realize the
anticipated benefits of its already completed and future
acquisitions, including the recently completed acquisition of the
Agri-products business of Viterra.  
Events or circumstances that could cause actual results to differ
materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but
are not limited to: general economic, market and business conditions,
weather conditions including impacts from regional flooding and/or
drought conditions; crop prices; the supply and demand and price
levels for our major products; governmental and regulatory
requirements and actions by governmental authorities, including
changes in government policy, government ownership requirements,
changes in environmental, tax and other laws or regulations and the
interpretation thereof, and political risks, including civil unrest,
actions by armed groups or conflict, as well as counterparty and
sovereign risk; and other risk factors detailed from time to time in
Agrium reports filed with the Canadian securities regulators and the
Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States. There is a
risk that the Egyptian Misr Fertilizer Production Company nitrogen
facility in Egypt may not be allowed to proceed with the completion
of the two new facilities. Additionally, there are risks associated
with Agrium's acquisition of AWB, including litigation risk resulting
from AWB having been named in litigation commenced by the Iraqi
Government relating to the United Nations Oil-For-Food Programme.
Furthermore, there are risks associated with our acquisition of the
Agri-products business of Viterra, including: timing and costs of the
associated integration of the retained Viterra business, the size and
timing of expected synergies could be less favorable than
anticipated; disruption from the acquisition making it more difficult
to maintain relationships with customers, employees and suppliers;
our efforts to integrate Viterra's business into our existing
business could result in the disruption of our ongoing business and
other risk factors detailed from time to time in Agrium reports filed
with the Canadian securities regulators and the Securities and
Exchange Commission in the United States. 
The purpose of our guidance for the fourth quarter of 2013 included
herein is to assist readers in understanding our expected and
targeted financial results and this information may not be
appropriate for other purposes. 
Agrium disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any
forward-looking statements in this MD&A as a result of new
information or future events, except as may be required under
applicable U.S. federal securities laws or applicable Canadian
securities legislation.

AGRIUM INC. 
Summarized Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements 
For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 
(Millions of U.S. dollars, except per share amounts) 
(Unaudited) 
1. Corporate Information 
Corporate information 
Agrium Inc. ("Agrium") is incorporated under the laws of Canada with
common shares listed under the symbol "AGU" on the New York Stock
Exchange (NYSE) and the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). Our Corporate
head office is located at 13131 Lake Fraser Drive S.E. Calgary,
Canada. We conduct operations globally from our Wholesale head office
in Calgary, and our Retail and Advanced Technologies head offices in
Loveland, Colorado, United States. 
Agrium (with its subsidiaries) operates three strategic business
units: 


 
--  Retail operates in North and South America and Australia, and sells crop
    nutrients, crop protection products, seed and services directly to
    growers. 
--  Wholesale operates in North and South America and Europe, and produces,
    markets and distributes three primary groups of crop nutrients:
    nitrogen, potash and phosphate for agricultural and industrial customers
    around the world. 
--  Advanced Technologies ("AAT") produces and markets controlled-release
    crop nutrients and micronutrients in the broad-based agriculture,
    specialty agriculture, professional turf, horticulture, and consumer
    lawn and garden markets. 

 
Basis of preparation and statement of compliance 
These consolidated interim financial statements ("interim financial
statements") were approved for issuance by the Audit Committee on
November 5, 2013. We prepared these interim financial statements in
accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards
applicable to the preparation of interim financial statements as
issued by the International Accounting Standards Board, including
International Accounting Standard 34 Interim Financial Reporting.
They do not include all information and disclosures normally provided
in annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with
our audited annual financial statements and related notes contained
in our 2012 Annual Report, available at www.agrium.com.  
Seasonality in our business results from increased demand for our
products during planting seasons. Sales are generally higher in
spring and fall. 
2. Significant Accounting Policies 
Except as described below, the accounting policies applied in this
consolidated interim financial report are the same as those applied
by Agrium in our 2012 Annual Report. The following changes in
accounting policies will be reflected in our 2013 Annual Report.

3. Impact of Application of IFRS 11 
Upon the application of IFRS 11, effective January 1, 2013 and with
retrospective application to January 1, 2012, we reviewed and
assessed the legal form and terms of contracts of our investments in
joint arrangements. The application of IFRS 11 has changed the
classification and subsequent accounting of our investment in
Profertil S.A. and other joint arrangements, previously accounted for
using the proportionate consolidation method. Under IFRS 11,
Profertil S.A. and other joint arrangements are classified as joint
ventures and our interest is accounted for using the equity method.

4. Business Acquisition 
We acquired certain agri-products assets of Viterra Inc. ("Viterra")
from Glencore International plc ("Glencore") on October 1, 2013. The
acquired assets include over 200 retail farm centers in Canada and
Australia. 
We will allocate the majority of assets acquired and liabilities
assumed to the Retail business unit. Benefits of the acquisition
include expansion of geographical coverage for the sale of crop
inputs in Canada, acquisition of a significant customer base and
talented workforce, the value of synergies between Agrium and
Viterra, and cost savings opportunities. 
We have engaged an independent valuation firm to assist us in
determining the fair value of the assets acquired, liabilities
assumed, including contingent liabilities and provisions, and related
deferred income tax impacts. The valuation is in progress; however a
provisional purchase price allocation is not yet available due to the
inherent complexity of the valuations and the short time frame
following the closing date. 
We expect the excess of the estimated fair value of the net assets
acquired over the purchase price will result in a bargain purchase
gain in the three months ending December 31, 2013. We believe that a
bargain purchase gain is likely considering the circumstances
surrounding the acquisition, including: the motivation of other
parties to the transaction to announce the agreement without delay;
and Glencore's intention to divest of assets that were not strategic
to its operations with a "made in Canada" solution that included
favorable terms to us because of our immediate and direct ability to
integrate, control, manage and obtain synergies from the acquired
assets compared to other bidders due to our unique vertically
integrated operating strategy. Before finalizing our estimates of
fair values and concluding that a bargain purchase gain is
appropriate, we will complete a rigorous review of the assets
acquired and liabilities assumed to determine if we should recognize
any additional assets or liabilities. We will also review IFRS 3
Business Combinations when determining the measurement of
identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the
acquisition date. 
Acquisition-related costs of $9-million were recorded in other
expenses during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 (2012 -
$4-million). 
The purchase price and other adjustments will be recorded as a
reduction of the advance on acquisition of Viterra Inc.

We determine fair value for financial instruments classified as Level
1 using independent quoted market prices for identical instruments in
active markets. Fair value for financial instruments classified as
Level 2 is estimated using quoted prices for similar instruments in
active markets or prices for identical or similar instruments in
markets that are not active, or using valuation techniques that are
based on industry-accepted third-party models, which make maximum use
of market-based inputs. 
We determine the fair value of foreign exchange derivative contracts
using the income approach. We determine the fair value of gas and
power derivative contracts using the market approach. Inputs to fair
value determinations include, but are not limited to, current spot
prices and forward pricing curves for natural gas and power, current
published interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates, market
volatility, our own credit risk and counterparty credit risk. 
We monitor the availability of observable market data to assess the
appropriate classification of financial instruments within the fair
value hierarchy. Changes in economic conditions or market liquidity
generally drive changes in availability of observable market data.
Changes in availability of observable market data, which also may
result in changing the valuation technique used, are generally the
cause of transfers between Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. There have
been no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements
in the reporting period ended September 30, 2013 (September 30, 2012
- no transfers). We do not measure any of our financial instruments
using Level 3 inputs.

Fair value of long-term debt is determined based on comparable debt
instruments. Carrying value of floating rate debt and all other
financial instruments approximates fair value due to the short-term
nature of the instruments.
