- Itafos today announced that it has signed a definitive arm’s length purchase agreement with Agrium Inc. (TSX:AGU) (NYSE:AGU) to acquire Agrium’s Conda Phosphate Operations, an integrated producer of phosphate fertilizers and specialty products, for total cash consideration of approximately US$100 million (which includes inventory) on a cash and debt free basis.  Conda Phosphate Operations, located in Conda, Idaho, which include phosphate production facilities and adjacent phosphate mineral rights, produces approximately 540,000 metric tons per year of mono-ammonium phosphate (“MAP”), super phosphoric acid (“SPA”), merchant grade phosphoric acid (“MGA”) and specialty products (“phosphate solutions”) and serves the North American fertilizer market.  The transaction includes long-term strategic supply and off-take agreements.  Under the terms of the supply and off-take agreements, Agrium will supply 100% of the ammonia requirements of Conda Phosphate Operations and purchase 100% of MAP product produced, with pricing formulas for both tied to benchmark phosphate fertilizer prices.  “This transaction is transformative for Itafos and vastly accelerates our strategic objective of becoming a leading global player in the phosphate fertilizer industry,” said Brian Zatarain, Chief Executive Officer of Itafos.  “Conda Phosphate Operations further diversifies our global position of long-term strategic phosphate assets with an operating business in North America that has a long and successful track record of safe, responsible, reliable, continuous and financially stable operations.”  The transaction is expected to close by year end 2017, subject to customary closing conditions, including approval of the Federal Trade Commission and approval of the TSXV.
