Mr. Tilk, age 50, was the president, chief executive officer and member of the board of directors of Inmet Mining Corporation from 2009 until Inmet was acquired by another company earlier this year. He held various other executive positions with Inmet since 1999. A copy of PotashCorp's April 6, 2014 press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 this report.

Mr. Tilk will also participate in the PotashCorp's retirement plan, a new supplemental defined contribution plan intended to be competitive with the retirement benefits provided to executives in Canada at the median level and other benefit arrangements generally available to PotashCorp executives. The documentation providing for these arrangements is expected to be finalized by June 30, 2014.

Mr. Doyle will continue to receive his current compensation and benefits, except that his performance goals will be modified to include CEO transition matters.
