Ad hoc disclosure of K+S Aktiengesellschaft
Examination of the consolidated financial statements of K+S Aktiengesellschaft as of December 31, 2019, as well as June 30, 2020, by the German Audit Office for Accounting at the occasion-related request of the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority

At the occasion-related request of the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority ("Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht - BaFin"), the German Audit Office for Accounting ("Deutsche Prüfstelle für Rechnungslegungsaufsicht - DPR") examines the consolidated financial statements of K+S Aktiengesellschaft ("K+S") as of December 31, 2019, together with the related interim group management report and the abbreviated financial statements as of June 30, 2020.

Examination of the German Audit Office for Accounting
Maximum transparency

At the beginning of November last year, K+S announced to the public that the Board of Executive Directors had adjusted its long-term assumptions for the potash business. Essentially, this related to the long-term development of potash prices. Furthermore, an adjustment of the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) became mandatory. Overall, this resulted in a non-cash, one-off impairment loss of around €2 billion on assets in the Europe+ operating unit.

Conclusion of agreement between Belarus and India
Supply price does not reflect current market conditions

K+S has noted that the price agreed for potash supplies is significantly below the level currently prevailing on important export markets. Therefore, the continuing positive fundamental situation of the agricultural markets as well as the associated increasing demand for potash fertilizers is not reflected in any way.
