Uralkali Announcement


Uralkali (the Company; Moscow Exchange: URKA), one of the world’s leading potash producers, provides the following comment on the conclusion of a long-term contract between Belarusian Potash Company (BPC) and IPL, India’s largest importer of mineral fertilizers.

Alexander Terletskiy, Uralkali Trading CEO, commented

Considering the positive market conditions demonstrated in the second half of 2020 and early 2021, as well as the continuous growth in demand for potassium chloride in the main consumer markets this year, Uralkali believes that the price of the contract signed with India is not in line with the current market trends, and does not meet the interests of leading producers of potash fertilizers.

Uralkali (www.uralkali.com) is one of the world’s largest potash producers and exporters. The Company’s assets consist of 5 mines and 7 ore treatment plants in the towns of Berezniki and Solikamsk (Perm Region, Russia). Uralkali employs more than 12,000 people in the main production unit.
