06:56 EDTMOSMosaic sees Q1 Phosphates segment sales volumes of 1.8M-2.2M tonnes
Mosaic said total sales volumes for the Phosphates segment are expected to range from 1.8 to 2.2 million tonnes for the first quarter of 2016, compared to 2.3 million tonnes last year. Mosaic's realized DAP price, FOB plant, is estimated to range from $350 to $370 per tonne for the first quarter of 2016. As Mosaic works through higher cost inventory, the segment gross margin rate in the first quarter is estimated to be around 10%, and the operating rate is expected to be in the 70 to 80 percent range, reflecting the Company's decision to curtail production in this period. Total sales volumes for the Potash segment are expected to range from 1.5 to 1.9 million tonnes for the first quarter of 2016, compared to 2.0 million tonnes last year. Mosaic's realized MOP price, FOB plant, is estimated to range from $200 to $230 per tonne. Mosaic's gross margin rate in the segment is expected to be in the low to mid 20 percent range. The operating rate is expected to be in the 70 to 80 percent range. Total sales volumes for the International Distribution segment are expected to range from 1.0 to 1.2 million tonnes for the first quarter of 2016, compared to 1.0 million tonnes last year.

06:53 EDTMOSMosaic reports Q4 Phosphates segment sales of $1B
Net sales in the Phosphates segment were $1.0B for the fourth quarter, down from $1.2B last year, driven by lower sales volumes and lower finished product prices. Gross margin was $121 million, or 12 percent of net sales, compared to $231 million, or 19% of net sales, for the same period a year ago. The year-over-year change in gross margin rate primarily reflects lower finished product selling prices and a lower operating rate, partially offset by lower realized ammonia and sulfur costs. The fourth quarter average DAP selling price, FOB plant, was $410 per tonne, compared to $447 per tonne a year ago. Phosphates segment total sales volumes were 2.2 million tonnes, down from 2.4 million tonnes last year.

18:33 EDTDEDeere urges ratification of Trans-Pacific Partnership
Deere & Company urged the U.S. Congress to ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership, saying the trade agreement signed by 12 countries today is a much-needed step to boost the global economy. Samuel Allen, Deere & Company chairman and CEO said the global marketplace is important to Deere's employees as nearly 40% of the company's revenues already come from sales outside the U.S. and Canada. Exports at Deere's larger agricultural and construction equipment factories in Iowa and Illinois account for between one-third and one-fourth of all units manufactured at those facilities. Deere serves customers in the TPP participating countries and has facilities in seven of them. The agreement is expected to boost trade flows among all participants and strengthen global food security by improving efficiency in meeting food and feed needs as well as improving infrastructure across the Asia-Pacific region.
