Yara International ASA: Yara well positioned for further value creation

Oslo, 1 March 2016:
Yara International ASA today meets with investors and analysts for Yara's
Capital Markets Day to present market prospects, segment strategies,
improvement activities and financial scenarios.

"Yara's return on investment demonstrates the value creation and robustness of
its business model. But although we have delivered strong results, we cannot
rest on our laurels", says Svein Tore Holsether, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Yara.

Yara presents new scenarios for future earnings at the Capital Markets Day.
The scenarios are not a prediction of future results, but are "what if"
examples based on selected fertilizer and energy price scenarios and Yara's
current business.

A run rate scenario reflecting current market prices translates into an
estimated Earnings Per Share (EPS) of NOK 35. A full-cost scenario reflecting
recently observable plant construction and production costs indicates a urea
price around 300 USD/t which translates into an estimated Earnings Per Share
(EPS) of NOK 57. Adding Yara's committed growth adds an additional estimated
6 NOK per share by 2018, or 7 NOK per share under the full-cost urea
scenario.

"We believe growth is key to creating further shareholder value, and sustain
and grow our competitive edge. Also, improving our relative cost position and
productivity is a key priority. During the next six months we will establish
a Corporate Improvement Program, consisting of several initiatives aimed at
reducing cost and increasing efficiency", says Svein Tore Holsether,
President and Chief Executive Officer of Yara.
