Purchase of minority shareholder stake

Zug, Switzerland, August 21, 2019 – EuroChem Group AG (“EuroChem” or the “Group”), a leading global fertilizer company, today announces the buy-back of a 10% stake in the Group from former Chief Executive Officer Dmitry Strezhnev.

The stake was sold by Midstream Group Limited, a holding company whose sole beneficiary is Mr Strezhnev, for the value of US$785 million. Mr Strezhnev, who served as CEO and Board Member for more than 15 years, stepped down from the Board back in May after deciding to focus instead on other business ventures outside EuroChem.

“I am grateful to Dmitry for his long service to EuroChem. He has been instrumental in the successful development of the company into a global force in the fertilizer industry and we wish him every success in the future,” said Alexander Landia, Chairman of the Board of EuroChem.
