PLACING OF 335,229,900 EXISTING ORDINARY SHARES IN MAGNITOGORSK IRON & STEEL WORKS (MMK)

 

Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) ("MMK" or the "Company", Moscow Exchange ticker: MAGN) announces that Mintha Holding Limited ("Mintha"), whose ultimate beneficiary is Mr. V. Rashnikov has sold 335,229,900 ordinary shares (the "Placement Shares") in the Company, representing 3% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company. The Placement Shares were sold to Goldman Sachs International for resale to investors (the "Placing").

 

Following the sale, the ownership interest of Mintha in the Company's issued ordinary share capital is 84.3% and the free float of the Company is 15.7%. The increase of the level of free float is expected to lead to increased liquidity in the Company's shares.

 

Under the terms of the Placing, Mintha has agreed to not dispose of further shares in MMK for a period of 90 days from today's date without the consent of Goldman Sachs International, save for customary exceptions.

 

Goldman Sachs International acted as sole bookrunner on the Placing.

 

The Company will not receive any proceeds from the Placing.

The Placing Shares, in all respects, rank pari passu with the Company's ordinary shares.
