16-10-2017, Magnitogorsk

The Board of Directors of PJSC Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works ("MMK" or "the Company", ticker: MMK: LI) on 16 October 2017 approved a resolution to convene an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders (EGM) with absentee voting, and approved the agenda for the EGM as follows:

In taking the decision regarding the recommended size of the dividend, the Board of Directors will be guided by the Company's financial standing and profitability, the dividend yield and forecast free cash flow.

-          cut-off date for receipt of voting forms - 8 December 2017;

-          postal address to which completed voting forms should be sent - Status Registrar Agency, Magnitogorsk branch, 212 Karl Marx street, 455008 Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk Region, Russia;
