Ricard from their current positions of Senior Vice President - Mosaic Fertilizantes and Senior Vice President - Commercial, respectively, and elected Mr. McLellan to the position of Senior Vice President - Commercial and Ms. Ricard to the position of Senior Vice President - Mosaic Fertilizantes.
On November 1, 2019, Mosaic entered into a letter of understanding (the "Expatriate Agreement") with Ms. Ricard in connection with her agreement to relocate to Mosaic's Sao Paulo, Brazil office, where she will lead the Mosaic Fertilizantes operations. Under the Expatriate Agreement, it is anticipated that Ms. Ricard's international assignment will begin on November 15, 2019 and continue until November 14, 2022. During her assignment, Ms. Ricard will receive an annual base salary of $550,000, subject to annual review and adjustment in the ordinary course, and will continue to be eligible to participate in Mosaic's annual incentive plan with a target bonus percentage of 75% of base salary for 2019.

Among the benefits offered are tax equalization payments, tax consultation and preparation assistance, participation in an international health plan for Ms. Ricard and her eligible dependents, housing assistance, travel allowances, relocation assistance, automobile assistance and transition assistance. Mosaic is also obligated to provide Ms. Ricard with relocation assistance for her move back to the United States upon completion of her assignment.

The Retention Award will vest in three equal installments on the first, second and third anniversaries of the grant date provided that Ms. Ricard is employed by us on those dates, and will be payable in cash equal to the fair market value of the number of vested shares on each date of vesting. The Retention Award will not vest in the event of a change in control or for any other reason unless Ms. Ricard is employed by us on the vesting date.

Letter of Understanding: Long Term International Assignment to Sao Paulo, Brazil


Dear Corrine,

On behalf of The Mosaic Company (hereafter referred to as “the Company”), it is my pleasure to confirm the terms of your compensation and international assignment package for the role of Senior Vice President, Mosaic Fertilizantes. This Letter of Understanding outlines the terms and conditions that will govern your international assignment.
Assignment Details
For the purpose of the international assignment, your home country place of origin will be Tampa, FL, United States and your host country location will be considered Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The anticipated start date of your international project assignment is November 15, 2019. Your international assignment will continue for a period of approximately 36 months after which a review to extend it will occur. Any time spent in Sao Paulo prior to the assignment start date will be considered a business trip.

Your anticipated repatriation date is November 14, 2022 and is based upon the Company’s reasonable expectations at this time. This date is subject to change as determined by the Company’s business needs and is conditioned upon your agreement to the terms of this Letter of Understanding. Upon completion of your international assignment, it is expected that you will repatriate to your home country location, in accordance with the terms and conditions that govern your international assignment. However, if, after 24 months on assignment, it is mutually agreed that you will remain in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for a longer period of time, discussions regarding your extension will occur.

The Company has engaged Plus Relocation Services, Inc. (hereafter referred to as “PLUS”), a global relocation service provider, to administer your benefits. Your PLUS Relocation Counselor will be available for questions and counselling throughout your international assignment.

Your Role While on Assignment
Throughout the international assignment period you will be considered an employee of the Company’s U.S. entity, and your payroll will be administered by your home and host country payroll departments.

You will assume the titles of Senior Vice President, Mosaic Fertilizantes and President Brazil based in Sao Paulo, and will be reporting to Joc O’Rourke, CEO. While residing in Sao Paulo, your role will be to lead the existing Mosaic Fertilizantes business.
Compensation and Incentives
As an employee of the Company’s home country, your base pay structure will remain the same as when you were working in your home country location. As such, your annual base salary will be $550,000 USD and will be subject to the annual focal review and adjustment process, which is based on performance goals and objectives as defined by the Company. You will participate in your home country bonus plan and will be subject to required deductions as determined by the home country’s governing tax criteria for economic and social tax collection.

Eligibility and participation with respect to incentive schemes will continue to be administered in accordance with the home country criteria for each fiscal year. For the remainder of 2019, your incentive plan will be based on the Corporate Management Incentive Plan. Your incentive target will be 75% of base salary. Upon return, your compensation structure will return to current US market norms for your new role.

Expatriate Family Eligibility
Accompanying Dependents
Dependents are members of your immediate family sharing the residence with you in a bona fide dependency status (e.g. legal spouse, children, or other relatives). Dependents must fall into the following categories and may accompany you:

A person who is a dependent on the home country tax return, or
A person who is a dependent on your health insurance plan through the Company.

Children
Dependent children may accompany you only if there is no conflict with immigration or other laws or regulations in the host country.

Dependents
The members of an Expatriate's immediate family sharing the residence with the Expatriate in a bona fide dependency status (e.g., legal status, children or other relatives whose status qualifies as dependency under tax/legal status in the employee's home country and the Company's entity). A legal spouse is one who has legal spouse recognition/rights from the Expatriate's home country government. This does not include common-law marriage unless the home country recognizes it (usually with a certificate) as a legal marriage.

Benefit Plans
During your international assignment, your health coverage will be provided by the Company's preferred provider that covers employees who are working away from home. You are responsible for scheduling a meeting with your benefits administrator prior to your departure date to ensure that no lapse in health coverage occurs. While on expatriate assignment you and your eligible dependents will be covered by an international expatriate plan offered by Cigna that includes medical, dental and vision. Details will be provided to you upon your acceptance of the assignment.

Physical Examinations, Inoculations, Vaccinations and Documentation
It will be your responsibility to ensure that you and any approved accompanying family members undertake necessary physical examinations, inoculations and vaccinations. Prior to commencement of the international assignment, you must also obtain any necessary medical records and documents that are required by both the home and host country laws. The Company will reimburse the expenses incurred in complying with such requirements if not covered by your health plan.

Holiday, Vacation and External Board Membership Travel
Your vacation plan will continue to be administered by the Company's home country location. It is expected that you will coordinate planned time off in advance with your manager as you do today.

Your holiday entitlement will be based on your host country location. You are expected to adopt the local working hours and employment practices in accordance with the laws and customs of the host country.

In addition, you will be allowed time and travel for up to four (4) trips annually for external board meetings.
Immigration Services
Your international assignment is dependent upon the successful processing of your relevant entry, travel and work permit requirements, in accordance with the International Assignment Policy. The Company's immigration service provider will manage your home and host country immigration and relevant work permit obligations.

All immigration aspects of the international assignment, including work permits and visa applications, will be coordinated through the immigration services contact listed below.

Host Country Allowances and Benefits
The Companies approach for facilitating international assignments maintains both a standard of living that is appropriate for the host country location and ensures a personal tax liability roughly equivalent to your peers in your home country location. The primary objective is to ensure that you experience neither negative nor significant positive financial variances.

The table below details certain key elements of your allowances and benefits and the location where each component will be paid/received. The allowance and benefit adjustments indicated below will become effective upon commencement of the international assignment and receipt of your work permit. It is imperative that you notify PLUS of your departure and arrival dates to ensure you are paid in a timely manner.

Tax Equalization
In accordance with the Company’s International Assignment Tax Policy, you will be neither advantaged nor disadvantaged during your international assignment as a result of the differences in the income taxes and social security costs in the home and/or host country locations.

To achieve this balance your current tax withholdings may cease and a hypothetical rate of tax may be calculated and withheld from your wages. This ‘hypo tax’ may be retained by the Company to off-set the cost of home and host tax payments made on your behalf during your international assignment. The ‘hypo tax” may be adjusted either up or down during your international assignment.

Signing the Tax Equalization Policy Agreement acknowledging that you accept the terms and conditions of this Policy, is a pre-requisite to accepting the offer for a long-term international assignment. Under the terms of the Tax Equalization Policy Agreement, you agree to be considered tax equalized to your home state and country, which is effective from the start date of your international assignment through any subsequent years while on the international assignment.

In the event of voluntary or involuntary separation from the Company, a preliminary tax equalization settlement may be prepared, resulting in additional terms of payment to or from the Company at time of separation.

Before your international assignment begins, you should contact the Company’s Worldwide Tax Service Representative to schedule a home and host country tax consultation.

In the event that a reasonably appropriate position is not available to you, and in the event your re-employment is, therefore, involuntarily terminated by the Company during or within 30 days of the conclusion of your assignment for reasons other than for “Cause” (as defined below), and subject to your execution of a separation agreement and release of claims reasonably acceptable to the Company, the Company will provide you with such severance benefits as may be available under the Company’s Severance and Change in Control Agreement at the time your international assignment ends. If there is not an appropriate level position available upon return to your home country, you will be treated as a Senior Advisor until age 60 and then severed according to your then active Severance and Change in Control agreement.

For purposes of this Agreement, “Cause” means: (a) malfeasance which has an adverse impact upon the Company; (b) refusal to perform duties ordinarily performed by an employee in the same or similar position; (c) conviction of a crime which has an

Corrine Ricard    Page 7 of 9    




adverse impact on the Company or your ability to successfully perform job duties; (d) failure to comply with the written or known policies of the Company or directions of your superiors; (e) failure to fulfill your employment responsibilities in a competent and professional manner; or (f) a material breach of this Agreement or the Employee Confidential Information, Inventions, and Original Works of Authorship Agreement previously signed by you at your hire.

(ii)    50% or more of the voting power of all of the outstanding shares of all classes and series of capital stock of the Company entitled to vote in the general election of directors of the Company, voting together as a single class (the “Voting Stock”), of the Company is acquired or beneficially owned by any person, entity or group (within the meaning of Section 13d(3) or 14(d)(2) of the Exchange Act other than (A) an entity in connection with a Business Combination in which clauses (A) and (B) of subparagraph (iii) apply or (B) a licensed broker/dealer or licensed underwriter who purchases shares of Voting Stock pursuant to an underwritten public offering solely for the purpose of resale to the public,
(iii)    the consummation of a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another entity, a sale or other disposition (in one transaction or a series of transactions) of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets or a similar business combination (each, a “Business Combination”), in each case unless, immediately following such Business Combination, (A) all or substantially all of the beneficial owners of the Company’s Voting Stock immediately prior to such Business Combination beneficially own, directly or indirectly, more than 50% of the voting power of the then outstanding shares of Voting Stock (or comparable voting equity interests) of the surviving or acquiring entity resulting from such Business Combination (including such beneficial ownership of an entity that, as a result of such transaction, owns the Company or all or substantially all of the Company’s assets either directly or through one of more subsidiaries), in substantially the same proportions (as compared to the other beneficial owners of the Company’s Voting Stock immediately prior to such Business Combination) as their beneficial ownership of the Company’s Voting Stock immediately prior to such Business Combination, and (B) no person, entity or group beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, 50% or more of the voting power of the outstanding voting stock (or comparable equity interests) of the surviving or acquiring entity (other than a direct or indirect parent entity of the surviving or acquiring entity, that, after giving effect to the Business Combination, beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, 100% of the outstanding Voting Stock (or comparable equity interests) of the surviving or acquiring entity), or
(iv)    approval by the Company’s stockholders of a definitive agreement or plan to liquidate or dissolve the Company.






Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Change in Control shall not have occurred unless the event satisfies the definition of “change in control” under section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and any regulations, rules, or guidance thereunder (the “Code”).

(b)        “Qualified CIC Termination” shall mean (i) the Company’s termination of Participant’s employment without Cause (or Employee’s termination of employment for Good Reason), and (ii) such termination occurs either (A) upon, or within two years after, the occurrence of a Change in Control of the Company, or (B) at the time of, or following, the entry by the Company into a definitive agreement or plan for a Change in Control of the nature set forth in Section 3(a)(ii), (iii), or (iv) (so long as such Change in Control occurs within six months after the effective date of such termination).

(c)        “Cause” shall mean (i) the willful and continued failure by Participant substantially to perform his or her duties and obligations (other than any such failure resulting from his or her incapacity due to physical or mental illness), (ii) Participant’s conviction or plea bargain of any felony or gross misdemeanor involving moral turpitude, fraud or misappropriation of funds or (iii) the willful engaging by Participant in misconduct which causes substantial injury to the Company or its Affiliates, its other employees or the employees of its Affiliates or its clients or the clients of its Affiliates, whether monetarily or otherwise. For purposes of this paragraph, no action or failure to act on Participant’s part shall be considered “willful” unless done or omitted to be done, by Participant in bad faith and without reasonable belief that his or her action or omission was in the best interests of the Company.
(d)        “Good Reason” shall mean: (i) a material diminution in authority, duties, or responsibilities; (ii) a material change in geographic location where services are provided (the Company has determined this is any requirement by the Company that Participant move to a location more than fifty (50) miles away from Participant’s regular office location); or (iii) a material diminution in base salary. Good Reason shall not exist if (i) Participant expressly consents to such event in writing, (ii) Participant fails to object in writing to such event within sixty (60) days of its effective date, or (iii) Participant objects in writing to such event within sixty (60) days of its effective date but the Company cures such event within thirty (30) days after written notice from Participant. The written notice must describe the basis for Participant’s claim of Good Reason and identify what reasonable actions would be required to cure such Good Reason.
4.    Restrictions on Transfer. The RSUs shall not be transferable other than by will or by the laws of descent and distribution. Each right under this Award Agreement shall be exercisable during Participant’s lifetime only by Participant or, if permissible under applicable law, by Participant’s legal representative. No attempt to transfer the RSUs, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, shall vest the purported transferee with any interest or right in or with respect to the RSUs or the Shares. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Participant may, in the manner established pursuant to the Plan, designate a beneficiary or beneficiaries to exercise the rights of Participant and receive any property distributable with respect to the RSUs upon the death of Participant.
5.    Adjustments. If any RSUs vest subsequent to any change in the number or character of the Common Stock of the Company (through any stock dividend or other distribution, recapitalization, stock split, reverse stock split, reorganization, merger, consolidation, split-up, spin-off, combination, repurchase or exchange of shares, or otherwise), Participant shall then receive upon such vesting the cash value of the number and type of securities or other consideration which Participant would have received if such RSUs had vested prior to the event changing the number or character of the outstanding Common Stock. In the event of a Change in Control in connection with which the holders of Common Stock receive consideration consisting solely of shares of common stock that are registered under Section 12 of the Exchange Act there shall be substituted for each share of Common Stock convertible to cash upon vesting of the RSUs granted





under this Award Agreement the number and class of shares into which each outstanding share of Common Stock shall be converted pursuant to such Change in Control.

6.    Payment. The Company shall cause to be paid the cash value of vested whole and fractional RSUs during the Performance Period (less any amounts withheld to pay withholding taxes).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if there is a Change in Control as described under Section 2(d), then Participant shall receive, within ten (10) days of the occurrence of such Change in Control, a cash payment from the Company in an amount based on the number of RSUs vested under Section 2(d) multiplied by the highest per share price offered to stockholders of the Company in any transaction whereby the Change in Control takes place.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if there is a Change in Control as described under Section 2(e), then, within ten (10) days of Participant’s Qualified CIC Termination, the Company shall promptly cause to be issued the number and class of whole shares determined under Section 5 hereof registered in the name of Participant or in the name of Participant’s legal representatives, beneficiaries or heirs, as the case may be, subject to Section 8(a). The value of any fractional Shares shall be paid in cash at the same time. To the extent that Section 409A of the Code applies and Participant is a specified employee for purposes of section 409A of the Code, payment shall occur the first day of the seventh month following the date of the Participant’s termination of employment (rather than within ten (10) days of Participant’s Qualified CIC Termination).

Upon the issuance of Shares or payments under this Section, Participant’s RSUs shall be cancelled.

7.    Dividend Equivalents. Notwithstanding Section 6 hereof, for record dates that occur before a payment would have been made in accordance with Section 6 hereof, Participant shall be entitled to receive, with respect to each RSU that is converted to cash, dividend equivalent amounts if dividends are declared by the Board of Directors on the Company’s Common Stock. The dividend equivalent amounts shall be an amount of cash per share of Common stock that is converted to cash pursuant to this Award Agreement equal to the dividends per share paid to common stockholders of the Company on a share of the Company’s Common Stock during the Performance Period. The dividend equivalent amounts shall be accrued (without interest and earnings) rather than paid when a dividend is paid on a share of the Company’s Common Stock. If a RSU is forfeited, the dividend equivalents on the RSU are forfeited.
8.    Miscellaneous.
(a)    Income Tax Matters.
(i)    In order to comply with all applicable federal or state income tax laws or regulations, the Company may take such action as it deems appropriate to ensure that all applicable federal or state payroll, withholding, income or other taxes, which are the sole and absolute responsibility of Participant, are withheld or collected from Participant.
(ii)    In accordance with the terms of the Plan, and such rules as may be adopted under the Plan, Participant may elect to satisfy Participant’s federal and state income tax withholding obligations arising from the receipt of, or the lapse of restrictions relating to, the RSUs (including but not limited to the payment of dividend equivalents) by having the Company withhold a portion of the cash otherwise to be paid equal to the amount of such taxes. The Participant’s election must be made on or before the date that the amount of tax to be withheld is determined.





(iii)    To the extent a payment is not paid within the short-term deferral period and is not exempt from Section 409A of the Code (such as the rule exempting payments made following an involuntary termination of up to two times pay) then Section 409A of the Code shall apply. The Company intends this Award Agreement to comply with Section 409A of the Code and will interpret this Award Agreement in a manner that complies with Section 409A of the Code. For example, the term “termination” shall be interpreted to mean a separation from service under section 409A of the Code and the six-month delay rule shall apply if applicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, although the intent is to comply with section 409A of the Code, Participant shall be responsible for all taxes and penalties under this Award Agreement (the Company and its employees shall not be responsible for such taxes and penalties).

(b)    Clawback. This Award Agreement, and any amounts received hereunder, shall be subject to recovery or other penalties pursuant to (i) any Company clawback policy, as may be adopted or amended from time to time, or (ii) any applicable law, rule or regulation or applicable stock exchange rule, including, without limitation, Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, Section 954 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and any NYSE Listing Rule adopted pursuant thereto.
(c)    Plan Provisions Control. In the event that any provision of the Award Agreement conflicts with or is inconsistent in any respect with the terms of the Plan, the terms of the Plan shall control. Any term not otherwise defined in this Award Agreement shall have the meaning ascribed to it in the Plan.
(d)    Rationale for Grant. The RSUs granted pursuant to this Award Agreement is intended to offer Participant an incentive to put forth maximum efforts in future services for the success of the Company’s business. The RSUs are not intended to compensate Participant for past services.
(e)    No Rights of Stockholders. Neither Participant, Participant’s legal representative nor a permissible assignee of this award shall have any of the rights and privileges of a stockholder of the Company.
(f)    No Right to Employment. The issuance of the RSUs shall not be construed as giving Participant the right to be retained in the employ of the Company or an Affiliate, nor will it affect in any way the right of the Company or an Affiliate to terminate such employment at any time, with or without Cause. In addition, the Company or an Affiliate may at any time dismiss Participant from employment free from any liability or any claim under the Plan or the Award Agreement. Nothing in the Award Agreement shall confer on any person any legal or equitable right against the Company or any Affiliate, directly or indirectly, or give rise to any cause of action at law or in equity against the Company or an Affiliate. The award granted hereunder shall not form any part of the wages or salary of Participant for purposes of severance pay or termination indemnities, irrespective of the reason for termination of employment. Under no circumstances shall any person ceasing to be an employee of the Company or any Affiliate be entitled to any compensation for any loss of any right or benefit under the Award Agreement or Plan which such employee might otherwise have enjoyed but for termination of employment, whether such compensation is claimed by way of damages for wrongful or unfair dismissal, breach of contract or otherwise. By participating in the Plan, Participant shall be deemed to have accepted all the conditions of the Plan and the Award Agreement and the terms and conditions of any rules and regulations adopted by the Committee and shall be fully bound thereby.
(g)    Governing Law. The validity, construction and effect of the Plan and the Award Agreement, and any rules and regulations relating to the Plan and the Award Agreement, shall be determined in accordance with the internal laws, and not the law of conflicts, of the State of Delaware. Participant hereby submits to the nonexclusive jurisdiction and venue of the federal or state courts of Delaware to resolve any and all issues that may arise out of or relate to the Plan or the Award Agreement.





(h)    Severability. If any provision of the Award Agreement is or becomes or is deemed to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction or would disqualify the Award Agreement under any law deemed applicable by the Committee, such provision shall be construed or deemed amended to conform to applicable laws, or if it cannot be so construed or deemed amended without, in the determination of the Committee, materially altering the purpose or intent of the Plan or the Award Agreement, such provision shall be stricken as to such jurisdiction or the Award Agreement, and the remainder of the Award Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
(i)    No Trust or Fund Created. Participant shall have no right, title, or interest whatsoever in or to any investments that the Company, its Subsidiaries, and/or its Affiliates may make to aid it in meeting its obligations under the Plan. Neither the Plan nor the Award Agreement shall create or be construed to create a trust or separate fund of any kind or a fiduciary relationship between the Company or any Affiliate and Participant or any other person.
(j)    Headings. Headings are given to the Sections and subsections of the Award Agreement solely as a convenience to facilitate reference. Such headings shall not be deemed in any way material or relevant to the construction or interpretation of the Award Agreement or any provision thereof.

THE MOSAIC COMPANY REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2019 RESULTS
ESTERHAZY K3 POTASH MINE ACCELERATED ANOTHER FULL YEAR
MOSAIC FERTILIZANTES 2019 EXPECTED SYNERGIES RAISED
COMPLETED $150 MILLION IN SHARE REPURCHASES YEAR TO DATE
TAMPA, FL, November 4, 2019 - The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS) today announced that its third quarter financial results reflect the expected strong performance of Potash and Mosaic Fertilizantes, but were negatively impacted by lower than expected Phosphates segment gross margins. The company has announced a series of actions to temporarily lower production in both phosphates and potash to match demand in 2019 and expects those efforts will position the company to capitalize on opportunities in 2020.
Mosaic reported a net loss of $44 million for the third quarter of 2019, and adjusted net earnings(1), after notable items, of $29 million. The company reported diluted earnings per share (EPS) of negative $0.11, and adjusted EPS(1) of $0.08. Adjusted EPS(1) was negatively impacted by certain tax accruals and other operating expenses totaling $0.12 per share, indicating run-rate earnings of $0.20 per share. The current period net loss includes a negative $81 million, $0.19 per share, impact from notable items, primarily from a loss on foreign currency. For the period, adjusted EBITDA(1) was $366 million.
Highlights:
The company accelerated development of the Esterhazy K3 potash mine by an additional year, allowing the closure of the K1 and K2 shafts and elimination of brine management costs by mid-2022, as well as lower cost of production.
The company expects to exceed its previously announced synergy target for Mosaic Fertilizantes of $275 million in 2019, by up to $50 million. In addition, the company announced a new target of $200 million in incremental annual EBITDA growth through ongoing business transformation efforts beginning in 2020 and ending by 2022.

Year-to-date, Mosaic has repurchased 7.1 million shares of its common stock for $150 million. During the third quarter, the company repurchased 5.8 million shares for $125 million. The company previously announced plans to repurchase up to $250 million of its common stock under an existing share repurchase authorization.
Mosaic Fertilizantes completed tailings dam remediation activities and returned the Tapira and Araxá phosphate mines in Brazil to full production in September, a month ahead of the original schedule announced in March. All necessary activities to comply with the new tailings dam requirements in Brazil are now complete and the company received new required safety certifications as of September 2019 to continue full operations.
The company revised its full-year adjusted EBITDA(1) guidance to $1.4 to $1.5 billion and adjusted EPS(1) guidance to $0.50 to $0.60, primarily reflecting the impact of historically low potash sales volumes due to delays in Canpotex shipments to India and China, and expectations that phosphates margins and pricing remain consistent with September 2019 levels, $10 to $15 per tonne lower than the third quarter 2019 average.
Temporarily idled capacity:
The Colonsay, Saskatchewan potash mine was temporarily idled in August. In the fourth quarter of 2019, the Esterhazy, Saskatchewan potash mine will be temporarily idled, bringing the company’s total 2019 potash curtailment to 600,000 tonnes. The curtailment is not expected to impact the pace of development at the Esterhazy K3 mine project.
On October 1, the company announced that it would reduce phosphates production by approximately 500,000 tonnes in 2019 by temporarily idling its operations in Louisiana.
These actions are expected to accelerate the reduction of fertilizer inventories remaining after a weak spring application season in the U.S. All three facilities are available to resume production when demand improves.
“While the challenging market environment has persisted longer than we had anticipated, the actions we are taking give us an improved platform to deliver value and shareholder returns,” said Mosaic President and CEO Joc O’Rourke. “We are seeing volumes move in North America and believe that strong volumes will lead to improved pricing. We believe that the bottom of the market is in and that 2020 will be a much stronger year for Mosaic and the customers we serve.”
Cash flow from operating activities in the third quarter of 2019 was $486 million. Capital expenditures totaled $322 million in the quarter. The company generated over $160 million in allocable cash, after capital

Net sales in the Potash segment totaled $616 million for the third quarter, up from $609 million last year, driven by higher average sales prices partially offset by lower volumes. Gross margin was $158 million for the third quarter and includes the negative impact of a notable item of $12 million for accelerated depreciation related to the planned idling of Esterhazy K1 and K2. Gross margin per tonne was $68 for the period compared with $66 for the same period a year ago, and adjusted gross margin per tonne was $73 in the period. Strong execution, including the announced production curtailment, and higher prices are driving the year over year improvement.

Net sales in the Mosaic Fertilizantes segment were $1.4 billion, which is nearly flat with the same period a year ago. Gross margin was $132 million, compared to $152 million for the same period a year ago. The year-over-year decrease in gross margin was primarily due to higher costs of purchased rock associated with idling of the Araxá, Catalão, and Tapira mining complexes as the company took actions to comply with the new tailings dam regulations in Brazil. These actions negatively impacted the quarter’s results by $29 million, bringing the total year-to-date cost of complying with the new regulations to $65 million. Mosaic continues to expect the full year 2019 costs to be approximately $80 million.
Despite the tailings dam related challenges, Mosaic Fertilizantes delivered $230 million in net realized synergies year to date. This represents a run rate in excess of previously stated targets. For the full year 2019, Mosaic believes it could exceed its $275 million target by up to $50 million.

Net sales in the Phosphates segment were $820 million for the third quarter, down from $1.0 billion last year, primarily driven by lower sales prices. Sales prices and margins have declined throughout 2019, primarily attributable to a weather-related demand decline in North America. Gross margin per tonne was negative $10 in the third quarter, and adjusted gross margin per tonne was negative $6, as lower selling prices more than offset the realized decline in raw material costs.
Other
The Corporate and Other segment gross margin for the third quarter was $9 million and adjusted gross margin was $16 million, primarily driven by realizing profit in inventory.
Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses were $78 million for the third quarter, essentially flat with the third quarter of 2018.
During the third quarter of 2019, we recorded tax expense of $69 million on pretax earnings of $52 million for a tax rate of 133 percent. Included in tax expense were discrete items that, if excluded, would result in a 38 percent tax rate year to date. The quarters tax expenses included a $39 million tax expense catch-up accrual. This accrual negatively impacted adjusted EPS by $0.10. The full year 2019 effective tax rate is now expected to be in the mid 30 percent range, as our mix of earnings shifts to higher marginal tax districts.  Net cash income tax payments in 2019 are expected to be approximately $50 million.
The equity earnings loss of $23 million primarily reflects Mosaic’s interest in the Ma’aden Wa’ad Al Shamal Phosphate Company (MWSPC) phosphate project in Saudi Arabia.


Financial Guidance
Mosaic expects that the North American 2019 fall application season will be strong, but given distributors’ high inventories, strong applications may not result in strong near-term revenue recognition. Both Phosphates and Mosaic Fertilizantes are expected to see full year volumes at the low end of the original guidance ranges. Potash sales volumes are expected to reflect the full 600,000 tonne curtailment announced in the quarter, primarily reflecting the delayed China contract, but including a modest, negative impact of fall weather on North American sales.
Prices assumed for the midpoint of fourth quarter gross margin guidance reflect October 24, 2019 pricing. Mosaic Fertilizantes gross margins also include costs related to the Brazilian dam regulatory change. Risks and factors




that could impact fourth quarter expectations are primarily related to weather and the potential for a shortened North American fall application window.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes the presentation and discussion of non-GAAP diluted net earnings per share guidance, or adjusted EPS, non-GAAP gross margin per tonne, or adjusted gross margin per tonne, and adjusted EBITDA, referred to as non-GAAP financial measures.  Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a supplemental numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as substitutes for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because non-GAAP measures are not determined in accordance with GAAP, they are thus susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted metrics, including adjusted EPS, adjusted gross margin, and adjusted EBITDA are calculated by excluding the impact of notable items from the GAAP measure. Notable items impact on gross margin and EBITDA is pretax.  Notable items impact on diluted net earnings per share is calculated as the notable item amount plus income tax effect, based on expected annual effective tax rate, divided by diluted weighted average shares. Management believes that these adjusted measures provide securities analysts, investors, management and others with useful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, our core operating results. Management utilizes these adjusted measures in analyzing and assessing Mosaic’s overall performance and financial trends, for financial and operating decision-making, and to forecast and plan for future periods. These adjusted measures also assist our management in comparing our and our competitors' operating results. We are not providing forward looking guidance for U.S. GAAP reported diluted net earnings per share, gross margin per tonne, or a quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EPS, adjusted gross margin and adjusted EBITDA because we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty our notable items without unreasonable effort. Historically, our notable items have included, but are not limited to, foreign currency transaction gain or loss, unrealized gain or loss on derivatives, acquisition-related fees, discrete tax items, contingencies and certain other gains or losses. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could have a material impact on U.S. GAAP reported results for the guidance period.  Reconciliations for current and historical periods beginning with the quarter ended June 30, 2017 for consolidated adjusted EPS and adjusted EBITDA, as well as segment adjusted EBITDA and adjusted gross margin per tonne are provided in the Selected Calendar Quarter Financial Information performance data for the related periods.  This information is being furnished under Exhibit 99.2 of the Form 8-K and available on our website at www.mosaicco.com in the “Financial Information - Quarterly Earnings” section under the “Investors” tab.
