Dmitry Osipov, Uralkali CEO, commented:

Despite an element of price certainty appeared at the major markets, and potash demand stabilising in 3Q 2016, key financial and operational indicators of Uralkali decreased in January-September 2016. The main reasons for that was y-o-y reduction in prices along with difficult market conditions in 1H 2016.

Financial and operational review

In 3Q 2016 the market situation stabilised due to execution of long-term contracts between potash suppliers and Chinese and Indian importers. Despite the Company’s 3Q 2016 increase in export sales, the 9M 2016 revenue decreased by 29% to US$ 1,684 million. Cash COGS amounted to US$ 34 per tonne.

The Company’s net debt amounted to US$ 5,705 million.
