Moscow, Russia - 28 November 2019 - Metalloinvest ('the Company'), a leading global iron ore and HBI producer, and one of the regional producers of high-quality steel, publishes its IFRS interim financial statement (unaudited) for the third quarter and nine months ended 30 September 2019.

Management comments

Alexey Voronov, Finance Director of Management Company Metalloinvest, commented:

"In the third quarter of 2019 steel prices continued to demonstrate weak dynamics, which was partially offset by the outperformance of average iron ore prices.  As a result, the Company's consolidated EBITDA for nine months of 2019 amounted to USD 2.1 bn, largely due to a 25% increase in the mining segment EBITDA. Due to the deep processing of iron ore products and competitive cash costs, business profitability remains strong. The Company's leverage remains at a comfortable level, with a Net Debt / EBITDA LTM of 1.29x at the end of the reporting period."
