1 Investment Research General Market Conditions 20 May 2015 Research Commodities El Niño returns grains and soft commodities at risk Meteorologists now agree that El Niño has arrived and project that it will last throughout the year and be of similar strength to the El Niño of This will create abnormal weather conditions, which may affect production of a wide range of grains and soft commodities, including in particular corn, wheat, cocoa, coffee, palm oil and sugar, and to a lesser extent rapeseed and soybean. Current high stock levels, which cover around 20-30% of annual consumption of corn, wheat, soybean, sugar and coffee, may soften the impact of El Niño. We expect grain prices to edge higher in the coming years with cost inflation and have further revised up our forecasts for corn and wheat prices, reflecting the firmer outlook for El Niño weather. In our view, prices in the forward market do not reflect the upside risk from El Niño, and we therefore recommend that clients on the consumer side hedge H and 2016 exposure at current levels. El Niño weather has arrived Meteorologists have called for El Niño weather to arrive for over a year, but now they agree that the weather phenomenon has returned. In recent released reports, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are operating with base scenarios under which El Niño weather will be present throughout 2015 and they further put a high probability that it will persist during the Northern Hemisphere summer this year, see here and here. It has been five years since the last period of El Niño weather. Although there is high uncertainty over how strong the weather phenomenon will be, current forecasts suggest it could develop into similar strength as the El Niño of , i.e. the world could be headed for a period of significant abnormal weather patterns. Forecasters agree on El Niño weather Source: Macrobond Financial, NOAA and Australian Bureau of Meteorology Effect of El Niño during Northern Hemisphere summer Source: NOAA Senior Analyst Jens Nærvig Pedersen Important disclosures and certifications are contained from page 6 of this report.

2 During the Northern Hemisphere summer, El Niño weather normally results in weather which is dryer than normal for the season in Southeast Asia and Australia, warmer and dryer weather in South America and more rain in the western part of North America. Such adverse weather poses a risk to wheat, sugar, coffee and palm oil production in Southeast Asia and Australia, a risk to cocoa, coffee and sugar supplies from South America and to corn and wheat production taking place in the US. During the Northern Hemisphere winter, Central and East Asia tend to experience warmer and rainier weather, South Asia and Australia dryer weather, East Africa tends to get more rain and Southeast Africa dryer weather. The winter in North America tends to be warmer and include more rain, while weather in the Northern part of South America tends to be dryer than normal for the season, while in the Eastern part of South America it tends to be warmer and in the Southern and Western part more wet than normal for the season. The adverse weather puts production of most major soft commodities including corn, wheat, soy, rapeseed, cocoa, coffee, sugar and palm oil at risk. Effect of El Niño during Northern Hemisphere winter Source: NOAA High stocks may soften impact of El Niño One important factor, which may soften a hit to production of the various grains and soft commodities listed above, is the current relatively high stock levels. It means that a draw on inventories could replace production affected by adverse weather, which in the end may dampen the effect on prices. This is particularly the case for soybean, wheat, coffee and sugar, where current stocks can cover around 25-30% of annual consumption. Following a couple of years of surging production, corn stocks have reached the highest level in years and may cover around 20% of annual consumption at the present time. The rapeseed and palm oil markets are more tight with stocks only able to cover around 10-12% of annual consumption. Most rapeseed production takes place in Europe and Canada, two regions which are normally not affected directly by El Niño weather, which means that the rapeseed market is less at risk of being hit by disruptive El Niño weather. The palm oil market, on the other hand, will be more alert as production in Southeast Asia could be plagued by dry weather during the rest of the year May 2015

3 Relatively high stocks of soft commodities Source: Macrobond Financial El Niño to push grain prices higher Overall, we still expect cost inflation to push prices on CBOT corn, CBOT soybean and CBOT wheat higher over the coming 18M. Following the new, firmer outlook for El Niño weather this year, we have further revised our price forecasts for CBOT wheat and CBOT corn higher from our recent forecast report see Research Commodities: Grain and oilseed prices to trend higher this year and next, 4 March This reflects our expectation that wheat and corn production is more at risk of being affected negatively by the projected adverse weather. This holds for milling wheat prices as well, however, we have revised our 2016 forecast slightly down reflecting our revised view on EUR/USD. We see less of an upside risk to CBOT soybean prices from El Niño weather. Furthermore, we expect the rapeseed price to rise short-term, as we forecast EUR/USD to drop back following the recent rebound higher, while European rapeseed and wheat production should be less affected by El Niño weather. We now forecast the price on CBOT wheat to average USD603/bu next year, revised up from USD578/bu, and the price on CBOT corn to average USD435/bu, revised up from USD428/bu, reflecting the new outlook for El Niño. We forecast CBOT soybean to average USD1,031/bu, revised down from USD1,115/bu the revision being mainly due to the decline in prices at the beginning of the year. Finally, we have kept our 2016 forecast for the price on milling wheat unchanged at EUR205/MT, while we have revised our price forecast on rapeseed down to EUR352/MT from EUR395/MT.

This premium has not changed significantly following the recent firmer outlook for El Niño weather and more or less reflects historic price volatility. Furthermore, prices in the forward market are 3 20 May 2015

Hence, in our view, the current pricing in the forward market does not reflect the rising upside risk, and we therefore recommend clients on the consumer side to hedge exposure in H and 2016 at present levels.
