Certain information in this press release is "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation and is prospective in nature, including the anticipated closing date. Forward-looking information is not based on historical facts, but rather on current expectations and projections about future events, and is therefore subject to risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from the future results expressed or implied by the forward-looking information.

Forward-looking information is also necessarily based upon a number of assumptions that, while considered reasonable by management, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, including the successful implementation of closing. Viterra cautions the reader that such forward-looking information involves known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that could cause actual results, performance or achievements of Viterra to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. In addition to general economic conditions, there are specific risks including, but not limited to, the risk of not successfully implementing the closing as anticipated and the risks described in Viterra's most recent Annual Information Form and those factors discussed in Viterra's Management's Discussion and Analysis for the year ending October 31, 2012 under the heading "Risks and Risk Management". Viterra can give no assurance that such forward-looking information will prove to have been correct.

The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on this forward-looking information, which speaks only as of the date of this press release.

Viterra disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information whether as a result of new information, further events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.
