Israel Chemicals Group Plans 600 Layoffs Within 2 Years

135 employees of Dead Sea Works, of the Israel Chemicals group, who were summoned to pre-dismissal hearings, are just the start: at the same time as the layoffs at Dead Sea Works, the management of Israel Chemicals, which is controlled by Idan Ofer's Israel Corporation, continues in its attempts to terminate the employment of 144 employees at Bromine Compounds at Neot Hovav. With the completion of the downsizing at these sites, the company plans to consolidate head offices in the group and carry out a restructuring, in the course of which 30 more employees will be laid off. Israel Chemicals explained the decision to hold pre-dismissal hearings at Dead Sea Works by the need to adjust the group's activity to the world potash market and to the implementation of the recommendations of the Sheshinski 2 committee, which recommended that from January 2017 Israel Chemicals should pay the state a 54% surtax. Israel Chemicals announced its intention of cutting its workforce and freezing investment plans amounting to billions of shekels in Israel some time ago, and invited the Dead Sea Works workers committee to enter negotiations on implementation of some of its plans.

ICL to Invest $500 Million in JV with Yunnan Yuntianhua Group

Israel Chemicals Ltd. is to invest $500 million to form a joint venture (JV) with Yunnan Yuntianhua Group. ICL will have 50% ownership of the JV, which will operate an integrated phosphate platform across the value chain, as well as having a strategic holding in Yunnan Yuntianhua. The JV will include a phosphate rock mine, currently operated by Yunnan Yuntianhua, that produces approximately 2.5m tonnes/year and an integrated phosphate operation with annual capacity of approximately 1.85m tonnes of sulphuric acid, 700,000 tonnes of phosphoric acid, 850,000 tonnes of fertilizers, 60,000 tonnes of purified phosphoric acid, 120,000 tonnes of specialty fertilizers and 65,000 tonnes of specialty phosphates for the food and engineered materials markets, ICL said in a statement. ICL will appoint the JV's CEO, chief operating officer and a vice president for sales and marketing. Yunnan Yuntianhua will nominate, on the other hand, the JV's CFO and a vice president for human resources. ICL will lead the operations of the business and merge ICL's existing businesses in China into this entity, which will be fully integrated into the producer's global businesses. The JV will be transformed into a fully operating business unit, including product development, production and sales and marketing. The transaction is expected to close in first quarter of 2016, subject to closing conditions which include government approvals. The transaction will strengthen the cost competitiveness of ICL's phosphate operations with access to a low-cost phosphate rock operation with vast reserves, as well as with low-cost phosphoric acid. The company also said the JV will help it offer higher value added products such as specialty water soluble monoammonium phosphate (MAP), specialty phosphate salts for food and engineered materials, as well as formulations in the specialty non-agricultural market. Moreover, it will be able to expand bulk fertilizers production (GMAP, granular triple superphosphate [GTSP]) via debottlenecking and improving utilisation and processes. The partners will establish a joint phosphate research and development (R&D) platform in Kunming (in the Chinese province of Yunnan) which will focus on product development for the Asian markets, as well as on process technologies for the phosphate operations.
