Israel Chemicals Ltd. operates as a fertilizer and specialty chemicals company worldwide. The company operates as a subsidiary of Israel Corporation Ltd. Strategy The key elements of the company’s strategy include expanding its production capabilities and reserves base; expanding market demand for its products; and growing its value-added downstream products. Segments The company operates in three segments, including Fertilizers, Industrial Products, and Performance Products. Fertilizers This segment develops, manufactures, markets, and sells fertilizers that are based primarily on potash (potassium chloride) and phosphate. The main products of the company’s Fertilizers segment are potash, fertilizers and phosphates, including specialty fertilizers. Potash: The company’s Fertilizers segment sells potash for direct application as a fertilizer and to compound fertilizer manufacturers. Its Fertilizers segment also uses potash for its own production of compound fertilizers, based mainly on phosphate and potash. The company’s Fertilizers segment produces potash from the Dead Sea and from underground mines in Spain and the United Kingdom. The company also produces polysulphate (also known as polyhalite), which is a mineral used in its natural form as fertilizer for agriculture, fertilizer for organic agriculture and a raw material for production of specialty fertilizers. Polysulphate consists of potash, sulfur, calcium, and magnesium. Fertilizers and Phosphates: The company’s Fertilizers segment produces fertilizer grade phosphoric acid, phosphate fertilizers, compound fertilizers and specialty fertilizers at its facilities in Israel. Its Fertilizers segment also has facilities for the production of phosphate fertilizers and specialty compound fertilizers in the Netherlands, Germany, the United States, Spain, India and Belgium, as well as animal feed additives facilities in Turkey and in Israel. In addition to phosphate rock, phosphoric acid production also requires significant quantities of sulfur, which the company’s Fertilizers segment purchases from third parties. Most of the compound fertilizers manufactured by the company’s Fertilizers segment are based on the elements phosphorus and potassium. Some of the compound fertilizers also contain nitrogen, which its Fertilizers segment acquires from third parties and incorporates with the phosphorus and potassium. The company’s Fertilizers segment is active in developing downstream products based on phosphate rock, including phosphate fertilizers and compound and specialty fertilizers. The company’s annual potential potash production capacity is approximately 6.5 million tons of potash, 4.5 million tons of phosphate rock, 1.9 million tons of phosphate fertilizers and compound fertilizers, 220 thousand tons of soluble fertilizers, 450 thousand tons of liquid fertilizers, 110 thousand tons of controlled release fertilizers and 300 thousand tons of peat. Sales, Marketing and Distribution: The primary markets of the company’s Fertilizers segment are Brazil, Europe, China and India. Its Fertilizers segment sells its fertilizer products primarily via a network of its own sales offices as well as sales agents throughout the world. Competition: The significant competitors of the company’s Fertilizers segment in international trade in the potash sector are Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (Canada), Belaruskali (Belarus), Mosaic (Canada and the United States), Uralkali (Russia), K+S (Germany), Agrium (Canada), APC (Jordan) and SQM (Chile). The main phosphate producers who compete with the comapny are Mosaic (United States), Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (Canada), OCP (Morocco), Group Chimique Tunisienne (Tunisia), Vale (Brazil), the Roullier Group (Europe) and various Russian and Chinese producers. Seasonality: The seasonal nature of demand for the company’s Fertilizers segment’s products gives rise generally to quarterly (December 31, 2014) sales fluctuations, as sales levels in the second and third quarters are generally higher than sales in the first and fourth quarters.
