Agrium’s 2014 Annual Report – Delivering on our Vision

Our vision is to be the world’s leading provider of agricultural inputs and services. We do this by leveraging our leading position in the agricultural retail distribution market and through our low-cost nutrient production capability in complementary end-markets.

Together these strengths allow us to deliver what our customers need – when and where they need it. True to our mission of helping to feed a growing world, our products and services are critical to ensuring that farmers can continue to expand global food production in a sustainable manner.

Our strategy to deliver on this vision is straightforward: to continually improve the efficiency across our business, focus on achieving best-in-class operational performance, and grow both organically and through strategic high-return investments. This provides Agrium with the ability to continue to increase our return of capital to shareholders. The success of our Company is built on our outstanding people, and we have a highly engaged workforce. We are executing focused growth plans across our business and these, combined with our Operational Excellence program, will generate significant free cash flow and support higher future total shareholder returns.

 

“The strength of our competitive position combined with the actions we have taken in 2014 will ensure Agrium can generate significant cash flow under almost any market conditions. Looking ahead to the immediate future, we will complete our portfolio review and divest identified assets, and we will complete our current expansion projects while ensuring that our capital is put to the highest return for our shareholders. The longer-term market fundamentals for our business remain as strong as ever. The global population continues to grow at a rapid pace, and developing countries want to improve their nutritional intake, all on a finite amount of arable land. In this regard, Agrium’s products and services through our Retail and Wholesale business units play a critical role in helping to feed a growing world in a sustainable manner.” - Chuck Magro, President & CEO
