January 30, 2013 11:19 AM EST Send to a Friend
Agrium Inc. (NYSE: AGU) today announced that it has tentatively settled all claims brought by a purported class of direct and indirect purchaser plaintiffs who alleged that Agrium's and other defendants' pricing of potash violated United States antitrust laws. The settlement is subject to court approval.

Agrium and the other defendants deny all allegations of wrongdoing, liability, or damage to any of the plaintiffs or putative classes in the action, deny that they engaged in any violation of law or breach of duty, and believe they acted properly at all times. This settlement avoids legal costs and the distractions associated with protracted litigation. Agrium will pay a total of USD$10-million to settle the claims and will thereby be released from any liability in connection with those claims.
