---------------------------------------------------------------------   Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc.   The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. ---------------------------------------------------------------------

In 2003, revenues increased by 1.3% to EUR 2,287.8 million. EBIT totalled EUR 115.7 million (-12.9%). At EUR 101.3 million, net income almost matched the figure of a year ago (-2.4%). Earnings per share amounted to EUR 2.42 (2002: EUR 2.43 per share). Given the rising trend in global fertilizer demand as well as extensive cost-cutting measures, K+S takes a confident view of 2004 and about 2005 in particular. The Board of Executive Directors and the Supervisory Board intend to propose once again a dividend of EUR 1.00 per share to the Annual General Meeting.
