Yara delivers strong cash flow in lower margin environment
Oslo, 20 October 2023: Third-quarter EBITDA excl. special items1 was USD 396 million, compared with USD 1,001 million a year earlier. Net income was USD 2 million (USD 0 per share) compared with USD 402 million (USD 1.57 per share) in third quarter 2022.
The main elements of the third-quarter results are:
- EBITDA down 62% due to reduced margins
- Operating cash flow of 1 BUSD primarily due to operating capital release
- European nitrate price negatively impacted by long order book at start of 3Q
- Supportive fundamentals for full season but uncertain phasing of deliveries
“Third-quarter results are impacted by strong price declines compared to last year, as the nitrogen industry continues to operate in a lower margin environment. Although agricultural fundamentals are supportive, nitrogen markets remain sensitive to geopolitical and commodity market volatility,” said Svein Tore Holsether, President and Chief Executive Officer at Yara.
“War, geopolitical instability, and the climate crisis are having major impacts on food security. It is therefore even more important to safeguard Europe’s strategic autonomy in within food and fertilizer, and to accelerate the green transition of European agriculture and industry,” said Holsether.
Nitrogen markets saw significant volatility in the third quarter, with the start of the new northern hemisphere season. The quarter began with swift nitrogen price responses to positive market news, with both improved demand and tighter supply. Demand softened in the mid-quarter as urea prices declined and European customers were reluctant to take further positions early in the new season.
Although the season for the European nitrogen industry is off to a slower start than in previous years, fundamentals for the full season are supportive. Agricultural conditions are favourable, and industry consultants forecast increased cereal production in 2023/24, despite drought in several regions earlier this year. Although fertilizer affordability reduced during the quarter, it is still above historical averages, and optimal application rates are up compared to the 22/23 season. However, as normal at this stage of the season, phasing of deliveries is uncertain and there is risk of new nitrogen curtailments if slow European demand continues. The energy transition, climate crisis and food security are top priorities globally. With its leading food solutions and ammonia positions, Yara is uniquely positioned to drive these transformations.
