The upper end of German potash miner K+Ss profit forecast range has become very ambitious, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (FAS) quoted Chief Executive Norbert Steiner as saying, according to Reuters.

K+S has so far said it anticipates its 2015 operating profit to rise to a range of 780 million to 860 million euros ($886-977 million), from 641 million last year, counting costs related to a since-withdrawn takeover offer by Potash Corp of Saskatchewan .

The upper end is by now very ambitious, but there is nothing to quibble about when it comes to range itself. We feel very comfortable with the forecast, the paper quoted Steiner as saying.

Potash Corp dropped its offer for K+S on Monday citing a decline in global commodity and equity markets and a lack of engagement by K+S administration. Reuters Reports
