2010: Terra agreement terminated

Yara signed a cash-merger agreement with Terra Industries Inc. in February 2010.

Although Terra would have been a perfect fit for Yara in the North American market, Yara chose to not match a superior acquisition bid that Terra received. Consequently, Terra terminated the agreement and paid Yara a break-up fee of NOK 666 million.
