Yara International ASA: Yara approves dividend and share buy-back program and re-elects Board members

Oslo, 11 May 2016:
The Yara International ASA Annual General Meeting yesterday approved a
dividend of NOK 15.00 per share and a new Power of attorney to the Board
regarding acquisition of own shares. All shareholder-elected Board members
and all Nomination Committee members were re-elected.

The dividend of NOK 15.00 per share will be paid on 24 May 2016 to
shareholders as of 10 May 2016, and the Yara share will be traded ex-dividend
from 11 May 2016. American Depository Receipts (ADRs) will also be traded
ex-dividend from 11 May 2016, with a dividend payment date of 1 June 2016.

The General Meeting approved the re-election for a period of two years of Leif
Teksum, Maria Moræus Hansen, Hilde Bakken, John Thuestad and Geir Isaksen as
Board members, and of Tom Knoff, Thorunn Kathrine Bakke, Ann Kristin
Brautaset and Anne Carine Tanum as Nomination Committee members.

The Annual General Meeting approved the cancellation of 1,190,000 of the
Company's own shares and the redemption of 675,539 shares owned by the
Norwegian State. The number of shares in the company will consequently be
reduced to 273,217,830.

The Annual General Meeting approved a new Power of attorney to the Board
regarding acquisition of own shares. The Board is thereby given authorization
to acquire up to 5 percent of Yara's shares before the next Annual General
Meeting. Yara has renewed its agreement with the Norwegian State according to
which the State's shares will be redeemed on a pro-rata basis to ensure that
the State's ownership is unchanged in the event repurchased shares are
cancelled.

The full minutes of the Annual General Meeting will be made available by the
end of the day on Yara's website:
