[In this Report I have explained about Engro Fertilizer limited and its next year forecasted financial
statements about their Balance sheet, Profit and Loss Account, Ratios and last Summary.]
Engro Fertilizers Limited Pakistan
Our story begins with one company’s enterprising decision to strive ahead and invest when another had
bowed out. In 1957, Pak Stanvac –an Esso/Mobil joint venture –stumbled upon vast deposits rich in natural
gas in Mari while pursuing viable oil exploration in Sind. With Pak Stanvac focused exclusively on oil
exploration, the discovery shifted the impetus to Esso which decided to invest on the massive industrial
potential of Mari gas field. Esso proposed establishment of a giant urea plant in Daharki, about ten miles
from the Mari gas fields, which would use natural gas produced as its primary raw material to turn out urea
Talks with the Government of Pakistan bore fruit in 1964, and an agreement was signed allowing Esso to set
up a urea plant with an annual capacity of 173,000 tons. Esso brought in state-of-the-art design;
commercially tried facilities; and a highly distinguished pool of technical expertise to ensure a smooth start
up. Total investment made was US$ 46M –the single largest foreign investment in Pakistan to date then. The
plant started production on 4 December 1968 –a few months late and with less than 10 % over run on the
To boost sales, a full-fledged marketing organization was established which undertook agronomic programs
to educate farmers of Pakistan. As the nation’s first branded fertilizer manufacturer, the Company helped
modernize traditional farming practices and boost farm yields, directly impacting the quality of life for
farmers and their families, and for the nation at large. Farmer education programs increased consumption of
fertilizers Pakistan, paving way for Company’s branded urea called “Engro” –an acronym for “Energy for
In 1978, Esso became Exxon as part of an international name change. The Company was therefore renamed
Exxon Chemical Pakistan Limited.
In 1991, Exxon decided to divest its fertilizer business on a global basis. The employees of Exxon Chemical
Pakistan Limited –in partnership with leading international and local financial institutions –bought out
Exxon’s 75% equity. This was, and perhaps still is, the most successful employee buy-out in Pakistan’s
corporate history. Renamed Engro Chemical Pakistan Limited, the Company went from strength to strength
with its consistent financial performance; growth of its core fertilizer business; and diversification into other
A major plant capacity upgrade at Daharki coincided with the employee led buy-out in 1991. Engro also
relocated fertilizer manufacturing plants from the UK and US to its Daharki plant site –an international first.
Beginning in 1994, Engro Chemical Pakistan Limited moreover started venturing into other sectors: foods,
energy, industrial control and automation, PVC resin manufacturing and marketing, and chemical terminal
By 2009, Engro was fast growing and had already diversified its business portfolio is as many as seven
different industries. The continual expansions and diversifications in Company’s enterprises necessitated a
broad restructuring in Engro Chemical operations and management. To facilitate better oversight, Engro
Chemical Pakistan was converted into a holding company named Engro Corporation, and its fertilizer
business was subsequently demerged to a newly formed Engro subsidiary –Engro Fertilizers Limited.
The demerger acquired the approval of High Court of Sind on December 9, 2009 after obtaining the requisite
approvals from creditors and shareholders of the Company. The demerger became effective from January 1,
2010. Subsequently, all fertilizer business assets and liabilities have been transferred to Engro Fertilizers
Limited against the issue of shares to the Company.
Future prospects for Engro Fertilizers look bright as the Company recently undertook its biggest urea
expansion project to date. Its newly constructed Prill Tower stands tall at 125 meters –dubbed the tallest
structure in Pakistan. The total cost of this expansion is approximately US$ 1.05 Billion, with the expanded
facility looking set to make Engro the biggest urea manufacturer in Pakistan, besides substantially cutting
the cost of urea imports to national exchequer.
Engro Fertilizers Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Engro Corporation and a renowned name in
Pakistan’s fertilizer industry. Engro holds a vast, nationwide production and marketing infrastructure and
produces leading fertilizer brands optimized for local cultivation needs and demand. Engro is also a leading
importer and seller of Phosphate products, which are marketed extensively across Pakistan as phospatic

Engro Fertilizers Limited was incorporated in June 2009, following a decision to demerge fertilizer concern
from its parent company Engro Chemical Pakistan Limited. The continual expansions and diversifications in
its enterprises necessitated a broad restructuring in Engro Chemical operations and management. To
facilitate better oversight, Engro Chemical Pakistan was converted into a holding company named Engro
Corporation, and its fertilizer business was subsequently demerged to a newly formed Engro subsidiary –
Engro Fertilizers Limited.
Engro’s fertilizer manufacturing facility at Daharki has been experiencing ongoing expansion. This, coupled
with distinct dynamics of highly nuanced fertilizer industry warranted an independent and dedicated
business entity and approach. The demerger of fertilizer concern was approved by High Court of Sind on
, 2009, making it effective as of January 1st
Engro Fertilizers is poised to become the leading urea manufacturer in the country following major
upgrading of its manufacturing capabilities. ENVEN 1.3–a tremendous expansion in Engro’s urea
manufacturing facility went into production in November 2010 and looks set to end Pakistan’s near-term urea
imports, leading to benefits of an expanded local urea base and savings in national exchequer.
Engro is a dynamic company driven by a vision to improve productivity and lifestyle for thousands of
farmers across Pakistan. Engro Fertilizers Limited has earned itself a distinguished name by continually
striving to uphold its tradition and trust of its loyal consumer base.
