JANA Partners Notifies Shareholders Of Agrium Vote Buying Strategy

"The disdain for the voice of shareholders and willingness to squander millions of dollars of shareholder capital for board self-preservation that this demonstrates is stunning," said JANA Managing Partner Barry Rosenstein.  "Equally stunning is Agrium's hypocrisy, given their claims of supposed broad shareholder support.  We think Agrium's board should speak up and tell shareholders why spending their capital to try to buy an election is good governance or in the long-term best interests of shareholders."

JANA urged all Agrium shareholders who receive voting advice from, or have given voting authority to, their broker or investment adviser to contact them immediately and ask if they are being financially compensated by Agrium for their votes.  JANA also called upon brokers and financial advisers who have entered into such arrangements to immediately terminate such arrangements and to inform any client who has already voted or had their shares voted for them that Agrium has agreed to compensate such broker or financial adviser for securing their vote.

More information, including full biographies of JANA's independent nominees, can be found at www.JanaAGUAnalysis.com.

VOTE THE BLUE PROXY OR VIF "FOR" UNLOCKING AGRIUM'S SUBSTANTIAL VALUE CREATION POTENTIAL

Even if you have previously submitted a white proxy or given voting instructions in support of the incumbent management nominees, you may still change your vote and support JANA's recommendations by completing and submitting a BLUE form of proxy or giving voting instructions in accordance with the BLUE voting instruction form.
