Ferrexpo AG Court Appeal Ruling

Ferrexpo plc

("Ferrexpo" or the "Company")

 Ferrexpo AG Court Appeal Ruling


On 19 June 2020, the Company announced that a district court in Kyiv placed a restriction covering 50.3% of the shares in Ferrexpo Poltava Mining (FPM) held by Ferrexpo AG Switzerland, the sole shareholder in FPM. The Company understands that the Kyiv Court of Appeal has now dismissed Ferrexpo AG's appeal against the above court order.


This announcement means that the restriction covering 50.3% of the shares in FPM remains effective. The restriction does not affect ownership of the shares in FPM, but prohibits their transfer. Furthermore, Ferrexpo AG has no intention, and never has had any intention, to transfer its shareholding in FPM. Ferrexpo's operations remain unaffected and continue as normal.


This restriction is similar to the restriction that the Company announced on 31 January 2020 and that was subsequently cancelled by the Kyiv Court of Appeal on 2 June 2020.


Ferrexpo is considering its options regarding further legal action against the restriction with its advisers.
