Jun 23, 2006
Yara International ASA announced on April 27 2006 that it had entered into a Heads of Agreement with BW Gas under which Yara would divest most of its ammonia shipping assets to BW Gas. Yara expected that the deal would be closed by second quarter 2006.
Due to practical issues, the closing of the deal has now been postponed to early third quarter 2006, and the net income for Yara of more than NOK 800 million will be booked in third quarter.
