Oslo, 12 January 2018: Yara International ASA has completed its acquisition of Tata Chemicals' urea business in India, marking a significant step forward for its growth ambitions in India.

"I am pleased to announce the completion of the acquisition of Tata Chemicals' urea business, which is a major step forward for Yara as we broaden our footprint in the world's second-largest fertilizer market. The inclusion of these assets in our global business will enable us to accelerate our growth in India," said Svein Tore Holsether, President and Chief Executive Officer of Yara.
