About Yara

2014

An exciting year of growth: We completed the acquisition of OFD Holding Inc. in Latin America; decided on investments in our production facilities in Nordic countries, and acquired three industrial technology companies, becoming a leading total solution provider for cleansing harmful emissions to air.

Growing in Latin America

Production site in Cartagena, Colombia

In Colombia, we completed the acquisition of OFD Holding Inc., with its fertilizer production facility in Cartagena and a regional distribution network in eight countries in Latin America.

We also acquired a 60 percent stake in the independent Brazilian fertilizer company Galvani Indústria, Comércio e Serviços S/A to secure phosphate fertilizer capacity in the northeast of the country.

Lastly, the integration of Bunge’s fertilizer division is ahead of schedule, with realized synergies of USD 55 million.

Building capacity in Europe

Uusinkaupunki, Finland

We announced investments into our production facilities in Köping, Sweden; Porsgrunn, Norway, and Uusikaupunki, Finland – expanding capacities of TAN, NPK and calcium nitrate in the Nordic region.

In France, we attained full control of the Le Havre urea plant.

Expanding emission abatement business

Scrubber, NCL-Escape

The acquisition of a majority stake in Green Tech Marine, renamed Yara Marine Technologies, in Norway added sulfur oxide (SOx) scrubber technology to our portfolio of emission abatement solutions for the maritime segment.

The nitrogen oxides (NOx) side of the portfolio was significantly strengthened through the acquisition of H+H Umwelt- und Industrietechnik GmbH, Germany.

Finally, we acquired the flue gas cleaning division of STRABAG SE, Austria, consolidating our position as a leading global, full-service emissions-to-air control company.
