Yara International ASA: Yara AGM and new buy-back program

Oslo, 17 April 2015: Yara International ASA will hold its Annual General
Meeting on Monday 11 May at 17:00 CEST at Drammensveien 131, Oslo. The
Nomination Committee proposes Maria Moræus Hansen as a new Board member, and
the Board asks the General Meeting to authorize a new share buy-back program.

The Nomination Committee proposes election for a period of one year of Maria
Moræus Hansen as new Board member. Moræus Hansen will replace Hilde Merete
Aasheim who has decided to resign from the Board. Moræus Hansen is a
Norwegian citizen and Managing Director of the Norwegian affiliate of GDF
SUEZ E&P since 2014, prior to which she held the position as Investment
Director in Aker ASA.

The Board proposes that the existing buy-back program is replaced by a new
program, authorizing the Board to acquire up to 5% of Yara's shares before
the next Annual General Meeting. Shares may be purchased within a price range
of NOK 10 to NOK 1,000. The shares may either be used for cancellation or as
payment in commercial transactions. The company has entered into a new
agreement with the Norwegian State to redeem shares on a pro-rata basis so
that the State's ownership is unchanged in the event of a cancellation of the
shares bought back.

The complete notice of the Annual General Meeting will be distributed to
Yara's registered shareholders and is also available on Yara's website:

The Yara International ASA share will be traded ex dividend from Tuesday 12
May 2015.
