Deerfield, IL - CF Industries Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CF), a leading global manufacturer of hydrogen and nitrogen products, today announced results for its fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2020.

"Our team's outstanding execution in 2020 produced multiple records for safety, production and sales volume, and delivered strong results in a challenging environment," said Tony Will, president and chief executive officer, CF Industries Holdings, Inc. "Nitrogen industry dynamics entering 2021 are the most favorable we've seen in nearly a decade, as rising grain values and higher global energy prices are driving significant price appreciation for nitrogen products. We expect that these conditions will provide a very positive backdrop for the year.

"Longer term, we are focused on our clean energy strategy as a growth platform and continue to make progress on our initiatives. We see significant and growing interest from potential partners and customers in clean hydrogen and ammonia as a way to make real progress decarbonizing key industries. We believe we are uniquely positioned with our unparalleled asset base and technical knowledge to serve this developing demand."

Operations Overview
CF Industries' operations are designated as part of the "critical infrastructure" in each country in which it operates and the Company continues to manage and respond actively to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the onset of the pandemic, CF Industries has relied on its safety culture and a wide range of measures put in place across its network to limit potential exposure to the virus at its locations and enable continued safe production and distribution of products.

As a result, there has been no known spread of the virus at the Company's locations, positive COVID-19 tests among its employee population have not affected the Company's ability to maintain safe staffing levels and operations have not been disrupted.

The Company continues to operate safely and efficiently. As of December 31, 2020, the 12-month rolling average recordable incident rate was 0.14 incidents per 200,000 work hours, the lowest level ever recorded by the Company and significantly better than industry benchmarks.

Gross ammonia production for the full year of 2020 was 10.4 million tons, and for the fourth quarter of 2020 was 2.7 million tons, both company records. CF Industries expects gross ammonia production in 2021 to be in a range of 9.5-10.0 million tons due to a higher number of planned maintenance activities than in 2020.
