Agrium’s 2013 Annual Report

Every day, the world faces a growing challenge: producing enough food to sustain a rapidly increasing population who also wants to improve its diet, and doing so on the planet’s limited amount of arable land.

Every day, we are focused on executing our strategy: to become the global leader across the agricultural product and service value chain.

Every day, 15,800 Agrium employees meet this challenge head-on, drawing on over 80 years of ingenuity and know-how, to produce and distribute crop inputs in a safe and responsible manner.

2013 was an exciting and challenging year for Agrium: We achieved net earnings from continuing operations of $7.31 per share, generated $2.2-billion in Adjusted EBITDA1 and $1.8-billion of cash flow from operations. We achieved these results in the face of crop nutrient prices falling 20-30 percent throughout the year. We also closed a major acquisition and raised                                                      our dividend substantially.
