PhosAgro Prices Seven-Year USD 500 Million Eurobond Issue with a Coupon of 2.6%, Setting new Benchmark for Russian Non-State Corporate Borrowers With Same Tenor

Moscow - PhosAgro (the "Company"; Moscow Exchange, LSE: PHOR), one of the world's leading vertically integrated producers of phosphate-based fertilizers, has successfully priced a USD 500 million seven-year (the longest-tenor issue by the Company) Eurobond issue with a coupon of 2.6% to be listed on Euronext Dublin.

The Company priced the issue on 9 September 2021 and the settlement is expected to take place on 16 September 2021.

PhosAgro CEO Andrey Guryev said: "We are delighted that the market has once again shown interest in PhosAgro's bond issue. The pricing process was a success and we closed the order book at a record low coupon rate for a seven-year Eurobond by a non-state Russian issuer. Significant demand from investors from all over the world indicates that there is strong interest in PhosAgro's corporate debt and that the Company is viewed as reliable. Our efficient and flexible business model, ambitious development strategy and established history with the capital markets were all important factors in attracting this financing. We plan to use the funds raised from the bond placement for general corporate purposes, as well as loan portfolio refinancing to maintain PhosAgro's net debt/EBITDA ratio at a comfortable level."

PhosAgro Board of Directors Chairman Xavier Rolet, who served as CEO of the London Stock Exchange from 2009 to 2017, said: "We are very pleased to report that the Company's track record of earnings growth and financial stability powered by strong demand for its sustainable, eco-efficient fertilizers that are free from harmful concentrations of cadmium and other heavy metals hazardous to human health and soils, elicited strong demand for its Eurobond issue from a wide range of Russian and international investors."

During the book building process, demand for PhosAgro's new Eurobond issue significantly outstripped the planned offering size.

The contemplated Eurobond issue is expected to be rated BBB- by Standard & Poor's, Baa3 by Moody's and a BBB-(EXP) by Fitch Ratings, which is consistent with the Company's corporate credit ratings.

BofA Securities, Citi, Gazprombank, J.P. Morgan, RBI, Renaissance Capital, SberCIB, UniCredit and VTB Capital acted as joint bookrunners for the transaction.
