Mosaic To Curtail Production Temporarily At Esterhazy Mine - Quick Facts

Fertilizer company Mosaic Co. (MOS) announced Thursday it will temporarily curtail production at its Esterhazy mine, which when combined with a previously announced potash curtailment, brings total curtailments to up to 600,000 tonnes.

The curtailment is not expected to impact the pace of development at the Esterhazy mine K3 project.

The increased curtailment is based on increasing inventories as a result of a short-term slowdown in global potash markets and increased risks of a delay in Chinese contract settlement.

If the full amount of the curtailment is realized in lower fourth quarter 2019 sales, it would result in a negative impact of approximately $150 million in adjusted EBITDA.

However, the company said it continues to expect a very strong application season in Brazil and North America, and a better supply and demand balance in 2020, despite the near-term fertilizer markets remaining challenging.
