SASKATOON, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc.

The commencement of the share repurchase program is subject to regulatory approval.

Purchases under the program may be made through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX"), the New York Stock Exchange or other published markets by means of open market transactions or by such other means as may be permitted by the TSX and applicable U.S. securities laws.
