11:42 EDTCF, MOSCF Industries completes sale of phosphate business to Mosaic
CF Industries (CF) announced that it has completed the sale of its phosphate business to Mosaic (MOS) for $1.4B or approximately $1B net of taxes and other adjustments. The sale follows the terms of the definitive agreement announced on October 28, 2013. The company said, "The net proceeds from the sale will be redeployed to execute the strategic initiatives we already have in progress, namely our nitrogen capacity expansions and completing our share repurchase authorization. Additionally, the supply agreements we have put in place with Mosaic will provide us a steady base of ammonia demand with attractive economics.” In conjunction with the close of the sale transaction, CF Industries will begin to supply Mosaic with its share of the ammonia produced by the company’s 50% owned production facility in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Additionally, the company has a long-term supply agreement with Mosaic to supply between 600K-800K tons of ammonia per year for up to 15 years from its Donaldsonville nitrogen complex. Deliveries of ammonia will begin no later than January 1, 2017 and will be priced at a defined margin over the cost of natural gas at Donaldsonville.

08:34 EDTMOSMosaic to permanently discontinue production of MOP at Carlsbad facility
Mosaic said in a filing that on July 21 it decided to permanently discontinue production of muriate of potash at its Carlsbad, New Mexico facility. The final date for production is expected to be December 31. The decision is based on the quality of the ore in the Carlsbad basin and the age of the facility's infrastructure. These combined factors make it difficult for the operations to remain competitive in an already challenging global market. The discontinuation of this product at Carlsbad is a further step in our previously announced ongoing asset optimization initiatives. Its larger potash production facilities at Esterhazy, Belle Plaine and Colonsay in Saskatchewan, Canada will continue to produce MOP.Mosaic’s plan for the immediate future is to transition the Carlsbad facility to the exclusive production of its highly valued K-Mag product line. K-Mag is a premium potash product that currently represents approximately 70% of production at the Carlsbad facility and is a long-term strategic asset for us.We currently estimate that the discontinued production will result in total pre-tax charges in the range of $135M-$160M. The third quarter pre-tax charges are estimated to be in the range of $55M-$77M with the majority of the remainder expected to be recorded in the fourth quarter.
