Mosaic was formed in October, 2004 from a combination of IMC Global Inc. and the fertilizer businesses of Cargill,
Incorporated. Prior to this combination, IMC Global was a publicly held company with the ticker symbol IGL which
was based in Lake Forest, IL. IMC Global had previously merged with Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FTX) in December
1997, when holders of Freeport McMoRan (FTX) received 0.9 shares of IMC Global for each share of FTX they
owned. They also received 1/3 of a warrant (IGLWS / CUSIP #449669118) and approximately 0.2 share of Freeport-
McMoRan Sulfur Inc., which is now known as McMoRan Exploration Co. (MMR). The warrants expired in December
2000 with no value. Mosaic has no relationship with MMR, or with Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, Inc.
This partnership was originally known as Freeport-McMoRan Resource Partners Limited Partnership. Limited
partnership units in FRP were publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. When FTX merged into IMC Global,
the name was changed to Phosphate Resource Partners Limited Partnership (NYSE: PLP). PLP was merged into
a wholly-owned subsidiary of IMC Global shortly before the combination of IMC Global and Cargill's fertilizer
businesses. In the merger PLP unit holders received one share of IMC Global for each five PLP units they held. Like
other IMC Global shares, these shares then converted to shares of Mosaic. There is no longer a market for the PLP
units. For further questions about past stock ownership or certificates, please contact our stock transfer agent:
American Stock Transfer and Trust, 59 Maiden Lane, New York, NY 10036. Their toll free number is 877.248.6417.
K-1 tax statements are no longer issued as PLP no longer exists. The last K-1 statements issued were for the period
of July 1, 2004 – October 19, 2004 which was the merger date.
Cargill does not own any shares of Mosaic. Mosaic maintains several commercial agreements with Cargill and its affiliates. We negotiated each of these agreements on the basis of what we believe to be competitive market practices.
