The Mosaic Company operates as a producer and marketer of concentrated phosphate and potash crop nutrients worldwide. The company also produces and markets phosphate-based animal feed ingredients in the United States. The company serves customers in approximately 40 countries. The company mines phosphate rock in Florida and processes rock into finished phosphate products at facilities in Florida and Louisiana. The company mines potash in Saskatchewan and New Mexico. Segments The company has three business segments: Phosphates, Potash, and International Distribution. Phosphates segment This segment sells phosphate-based crop nutrients and animal feed ingredients throughout North America and internationally. This segment owns and operates mines and production facilities in Florida, which produce concentrated phosphate crop nutrients and phosphate-based animal feed ingredients; and processing plants in Louisiana, which produce concentrated phosphate crop nutrients. The company’s phosphate crop nutrient products are marketed worldwide to crop nutrient manufacturers, distributors, retailers and farmers. The company’s principal phosphate crop nutrient products are: Diammonium Phosphate (DAP) (18-46-0): DAP is a high-analysis phosphate crop nutrient worldwide. DAP is produced by first combining phosphoric acid with anhydrous ammonia in a reaction vessel. DAP is a solid granular product that is applied directly or blended with other solid plant nutrient products, such as urea and potash. Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) (11-52-0): MAP is a high-analysis phosphate crop nutrient and phosphate product worldwide. MAP is also produced by first combining phosphoric acid with anhydrous ammonia in a reaction vessel. MAP is a solid granular product that is applied directly or blended with other solid plant nutrient products. MicroEssentials: MicroEssentials is a value-added ammoniated phosphate product that is improved through a patented process that creates thin platelets of sulfur and other micronutrients, such as zinc, on the granulated product. The patented process incorporates both the sulfate and elemental forms of sulfur, providing season long availability to crops. The company markets its feed phosphate primarily under the major brand names of Biofos and Nexfos. Phosphate Rock The company is a miner of phosphate rock and operates four mines with a combined annual capacity of approximately 17.2 million tonnes. All of the company’s wholly owned phosphate mines and related mining operations are located in central Florida.

Investments in Joint Ventures The company has a 35% economic interest in a joint venture, which owns the Miski Mayo phosphate rock mine in the Bayovar region of Peru. The company’s investment in the Miski Mayo Mine and related commercial offtake supply agreement to purchase a share of the phosphate rock from the Miski Mayo Mine allows the company to supplement its internally produced rock to meet its overall fertilizer production needs. The Miski Mayo Mine’s annual production capacity is 3.9 million tonnes. The company owns a 25% interest in Ma'aden Wa'ad Al Shamal Phosphate Company and in connection with its equity share, the company would market approximately 25% of the downstream products of the joint venture.
