Annual General Meeting on 14 May 2013
Supervisory Board will propose new shareholder representatives for election

The Supervisory Board of K+S Aktiengesellschaft will propose to the Annual General Meeting on 14 May 2013 that Dr. Annette Messemer and Wesley Clark be newly elected to the Supervisory Board of the Company. Today's resolution pursues the goal of having two female members on the body in the future and taking greater account of the increasing international nature of K+S.

Dr. Annette Messemer, divisional board member for Corporates & Markets of Commerzbank AG, would complement the Supervisory Board by a new independent financial expert. As a former CEO of the K+S subsidiary Morton Salt, one of the largest salt producers in North America, US-American Wesley Clark, operating partner of the Advent International Global Private Equity Group, has many years of experience in the salt business.

Furthermore, the Supervisory Board will propose to the Annual General Meeting that, in order to ensure appropriate continuity, Jella S. Benner-Heinacher, Dr. Eckart Sünner, Dr. Rudolf Müller and Dr. Bernd Malmström be re-elected to the Supervisory Board. The mandates of Rainer Grohe and Dr. Karl Heidenreich will end with the close of the Annual General Meeting 2013; both Gentlemen were, for reasons of age, no longer available for re-election. The Supervisory Board expresses its gratitude to the two members of the body for their many years of committed work.

The election of the employee representatives will take place at the beginning of April 2013.
