Background Formerly CF Industries, Inc.

CF Industries, Inc., a subsidiary of CF Industries Holdings, Inc., is one of North America’s largest manufacturers and distributors of nitrogen and phosphate fertilizer products.
Founded in 1946 as a fertilizer brokerage operation by a group of regional agricultural cooperatives, CF Industries grew by expanding its distribution capabilities and diversifying into fertilizer manufacturing. Through 2002, the company operated as a typical supply cooperative. However, in 2003, in response to changing market conditions, it adopted a new business model that established financial performance, rather than the traditional cooperative charge of providing an assured supply of product to its owners, as its principal objective.
In 2005, an Initial Public Offering completed the company’s transition and established CF Industries Holdings, Inc. as a public company. Its common stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “CF.”

News March 17, 2014 - The Mosaic Company has completed its acquisition of the phosphate business of CF Industries, Inc. for $1.2 billion in cash plus $200 million to fund the company's asset retirement obligation escrow.  Mosaic has acquired a 25,000-acre phosphate mine and beneficiation plant, a phosphate manufacturing facility and an ammonia terminal and finished product warehouse facilities in the Tampa area. The facilities currently produce approximately 1.8 million tonnes of phosphate fertilizer per year, which will bring Mosaic's annual phosphates capacity to over 11 million tonnes.  Mosaic funded the acquisition with cash, a portion of which Mosaic plans to replace with pre-payable intermediate term debt financing. The company intends to repay this debt financing as it generates excess free cash flows.  "This acquisition provides opportunities for enhanced operating efficiencies, lower production costs and reduced capital investment—creating value for our shareholders, customers and employees," said Mosaic President and Chief Executive Officer James T. Prokopanko. "The addition of these new phosphate assets further solidifies Mosaic's position among the largest, most efficient and lowest cost phosphate producers in the world."  The acquisition is additive to Mosaic's existing Florida operations, and complements the company's plans to mine phosphate rock reserves in Hardee and Desoto counties and extensions of the existing Wingate mine. The former CF mine's proximity to Mosaic's planned Ona mine creates substantial opportunities for operational synergies.  "We are thrilled to welcome CF's Florida phosphate employees to Mosaic," said Gary N. "Bo" Davis, Mosaic Senior Vice President - Phosphate Operations. "This addition will strengthen our operations and our deep commitments to the Central Florida communities where our employees live and work."
