Nutrien Announces Intention to Renew Share Repurchase Program

Share:

Nutrien Ltd. (Nutrien) today announced that its Board of Directors
approved the purchase of up to five percent of Nutrien's outstanding
common shares over a one-year period through a normal course issuer bid
(NCIB). Any purchases will commence following the expiration of our
current NCIB on February 22, 2019, and will be subject to acceptance by
the Toronto Stock Exchange of our notice to renew our NCIB.

"Nutrien's strong balance sheet and cash flow provide a significant
opportunity to enhance shareholder value. We repurchased seven percent
of our outstanding shares over the past twelve months and today's
announcement reflects our ability to continue to return meaningful cash
to shareholders," commented Chuck Magro, Nutrien's President and CEO.
