agrium inc (AGU) Key Developments

Agrium Inc. Provides Earnings Guidance for the First Quarter of 2014

Agrium Inc. provided earnings guidance for the first quarter of 2014. The company announced that the late spring season this year is expected to result in first quarter earnings per share just above breakeven. The slow start to the spring season is expected to impact the timing of wholesale, and to a lesser extent retail, earnings. First quarter wholesale results were also impacted by reduced rail availability and the usual lag in realized wholesale nutrient prices.

Agrium Inc. Proposes Amendments to its By-Law

Agrium Inc. at its e Annual and Special Meeting of shareholders to be held on May 7, 2014, to consider amendments to general by-law.

Agrium Seeks Sale Of Phosphate Production Operation

Agrium Inc. (TSX:AGU) may sell its phosphate production operation. In his first months on the job, Chuck Magro, the new Chief Executive Officer of Agrium has made a point of saying his main priority is to “optimize” the businesses that his very acquisitive predecessor, Mike Wilson, made in his 10 years in the role. Chuck Magro said "We have to decide whether we invest fresh capital from a rock position or do we do something with that business, and we're doing that review right now." The decisions will be made later this year, likely after Agrium's September strategy session.
