Safe Harbor Statement This presentation contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the anticipated benefits and synergies of our acquisition of the global phosphate and potash operations of Vale S.A. previously conducted through Vale Fertilizantes S.A. (which, when combined with our legacy distribution business in Brazil, is now known as Mosaic Fertilizantes) (the “Transaction”), other proposed or pending future transactions or strategic plans and other statements about future financial and operating results. Such statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of The Mosaic Company’s management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: difficulties with realization of the benefits and synergies of the Transaction, including the risks that the acquired business may not be integrated successfully or that the anticipated synergies or cost or capital expenditure savings from the Transaction may not be fully realized or may take longer to realize than expected, including because of political and economic instability in Brazil or changes in government policy in Brazil; the predictability and volatility of, and customer expectations about, agriculture, fertilizer, raw material, energy and transportation markets that are subject to competitive and other pressures and economic and credit market conditions; the level of inventories in the distribution channels for crop nutrients; the effect of future product innovations or development of new technologies on demand for our products; changes in foreign currency and exchange rates; international trade risks and other risks associated with Mosaic’s international operations and those of joint ventures in which Mosaic participates, including the performance of the Wa’ad Al Shamal Phosphate Company (also known as MWSPC), the ability of MWSPC to obtain additional planned funding in acceptable amounts and upon acceptable terms, the timely development and commencement of operations of production facilities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the future success of current plans for MWSPC and any future changes in those plans; the risk that protests against natural resource companies in Peru extend to or impact the Miski Mayo mine, which is operated by an entity in which we are the majority owner; difficulties with realization of the benefits of our long term natural gas based pricing ammonia supply agreement with CF Industries, Inc., including the risk that the cost savings initially anticipated from the agreement may not be fully realized over its term or that the price of natural gas or ammonia during the term are atlevelsatwhich the pricing is disadvantageous to Mosaic; customer defaults; the effects of Mosaic’s decisions to exit business operations or locations; changes in government policy; changes in environmental and other governmental regulation, including expansion of the types and extent of water resources regulated under federal law, carbon taxes or other greenhouse gas regulation, implementation of numeric water quality standards for the discharge of nutrients into Florida waterways or efforts to reduce the flow of excess nutrients into the Mississippi River basin, the Gulf of Mexico or elsewhere; further developments in judicial or administrative proceedings, or complaints that Mosaic’s operations are adversely impacting nearby farms, business operations or properties; difficulties or delays in receiving, increased costs of or challenges to necessary governmental permits or approvals or increased financial assurance requirements; resolution of global tax audit activity; the effectiveness of Mosaic’s processes for managing its strategic priorities; adverse weather conditions affecting operations in Central Florida, the Mississippi River basin, the Gulf Coast of the United States, Canada or Brazil, and including potential hurricanes, excess heat, cold, snow, rainfall or drought; actual costs of various items differing from management’s current estimates, including, among others, asset retirement, environmental remediation, reclamation or other environmental regulation, Canadian resources taxes and royalties, or the costs of the MWSPC, its existing or future funding and Mosaic’s commitments in support of such funding; reduction of Mosaic’s available cash and liquidity, and increased leverage, due to its use of cash and/or available debt capacity to fund financial assurance requirements and strategic investments; brine inflows at Mosaic’s Esterhazy, Saskatchewan, potash mine or other potash shaft mines; other accidents and disruptions involving Mosaic’s operations, including potential mine fires, floods, explosions, seismic events, sinkholes or releases of hazardous or volatile chemicals; and risks associated with cyber security, including reputational loss; as well as other risks and uncertainties reported from time to time in The Mosaic Company’s reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Actual results may differ from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. 2

CY 2017 shipments were revised down to 4.4 mmt based on the final import statistics. 2018 shipments are forecast to increase to 4.6 mmt due to higher minimum support prices for key crops, moderate K prices, a India 4.1 3.9 4.4 4.5 4.7 stable rupee, workable import economics, and initial forecasts of a normal monsoon this year. 2017 shipments were revised up again based on final import statistics. Shipments are expected to increase in Indonesia+Malaysia 4.6 4.7 5.1 5.0 5.2 2018 due to still favorable palm oil and rice prices and the expectation of normal rainfall this year. Shipments to this region jumped in 2017 led by big gains in Thailand, and Vietnam. Demand continues Other Asia 4.4 4.8 5.0 5.2 5.3 buoyed by good weather, favorable policies, OK crop prices and moderate K prices. We estimate that shipments dropped in 2017 as a result of elevated channel inventories and the aftermath of W. Europe 4.8 5.0 4.8 4.7 4.9 the drought in southern Europe last year. Shipments are forecast to stay in the 4.8 mmt range this year. Shipments here are following the increase in agricultural output. Demand is underpinned by mostly favorable E. Europe+FSU 4.7 4.6 5.2 5.3 5.5 weather, strong local-currency crop prices (bolstered by still weak currencies) and moderate K prices. Based on 2017 ANDA statistics, shipments were revised up to a record 9.7 mmt last year (.49 mmt production plus 9.20 mmt net imports). 2018 shipments are expected to breach the 10.0 mmt mark due to Brazil 8.8 9.3 9.7 10.0 10.2 continued good weather and positive agronomic and economic demand drivers. 2017 shipments were revised up as a result of broad-based gains in Central and other South America Other L. America 2.6 2.8 3.0 2.9 3.1 countries. Shipments this year are forecast to stay flat due to continued positive farm economics. 2017 shipments were revised up slightly due to another strong fall application season and early positioning of 2018 needs ahead of announced price increases. In 2018, on-farm use is expected to stay flat at higher new N. America 8.8 9.4 10.5 9.6 9.8 normal levels, but shipments are projected to drop to 9.8 mmt as some tonnage shipped late last year.

Supply Adjustments are Taking Hold . Mosaic’s idling of its Plant City facility in December 2017 impacts both fundamentals and sentiment. . Later start-up and slower ramp-up of new capacity with commissioning of OCP JPH 4 now delayed until late Q2 2018, but still a significant but needed increase in Moroccan and Saudi exports this year. . Chinese phosphate exports during the last six months (17Q4 - 18Q1) declined 24% or 1.2 million tonnes from the same period a year earlier. The decline is the result of both a strong domestic pull as well as more stringent environmental regulations.

We project that global phosphoric acid capacity will increase less than a million tonnes P2O5 from 2017 to 2022, with Morocco and Saudi Arabia accounting for all of the net increase, but largely offset by the idling of Plant City. Nearly all of the projected increase is on line by 2019. This analysis incorporates just a nominal 300,000t P2O5 net change in Chinese capacity, although we expect a restructuring of the industry with the permanent closure of less efficient plants and higher and more consistent operating rates at cost competitive facilities. . Production required to meet projected phosphate demand is forecast to increase 5.1 million tonnes P2O5 during this same period. As a result, the global effective capacity operating rate is projected to move up from 83% in 2017 to 91% by the end of the forecast period. The projected rate increases in 2018 due to the combination of moderate demand growth and the closure of our Plant City facility that offsets much of the expected ramp-up of new capacity next year. . There are no world-scale projects in the pipeline behind the first four OCP Jorf Phosphate Hubs (JPH 1-4) in Morocco and the Ma’aden Wa’ad al Shamal Phosphate Company (MWSPC) JV in Saudi Arabia. We do not expect additional capacity from either debottlenecking in Morocco or the next round of expansions in Saudi Arabia and Morocco until after the forecast period. This is a primary difference between our forecast and CRU’s, which includes both a new line and debottlenecking at Jorf, as well as the commissioning of a first phosphoric acid complex at Laayoune within the forecast period. 43

CRU projects that global phosphoric acid capacity will increase 2.8 million tonnes P2O5 from 58.6 million in 2017 to 61.5 million in 2022. Morocco and Saudi Arabia account for all of the net increase, and little new capacity is expected online after 2019. Estimates include the temporary idling of our Plant City facility at the end of 2017 as well as a net reduction of 500,000 tonnes of Chinese capacity during this period. . Production required to meet projected phosphate demand is forecast to increase 2.6 million tonnes P2O5 during this period. The global operating rate dips with the expected ramp up of new capacity in Morocco and Saudi Arabia during the next year but then trends upward during the rest of the forecast period. The projected rate in 2022 is equal to the rate at the start of the forecast period. In other words, CRU sees no deep or prolonged cyclical downturn, and with a bit more optimistic demand forecasts and a more significant restructuring of the Chinese industry the projected operating rate would trend even higher. . There are no world-scale projects in the pipeline behind the first four OCP Jorf Phosphate Hubs (JPH 1-4) in Morocco and the Ma’aden Wa’ad al Shamal Phosphate Company (MWSPC) JV in Saudi Arabia. CRU factors in capacity growth from the debottlenecking existing plants in Morocco, but the next wave of expansions in both Morocco and Saudi Arabia are not expected on line until after the forecast period. 44
