How do we calculate our costs?
Site Costs (EXW) = Raw material cost (phosphate rock, sulphur and ammonia) Conversion cost (energy, labour, consumables, sustaining capital).
Business Cost = Site Cost Realization (adjustment to site cost to reflect ex-works value of MOP relative to the DAP fob Morocco price).
Both costs are calculated against Actual and Capacity operating rates.
Actual Operating Rate: Uses actual production rates achieved in the cost calculations.
Capacity Operating Rate: Uses capacity production rates in the cost calculations.
