International vertically integrated group of metallurgical and mining companies Metinvest B.V. (Metinvest) disbursed US $ 150 million ahead of schedule in pre-export financing (PXF).
After this repayment, the PXF credit line has a balance of USD 78 million.
At the same time, Metinvest capitalized on its strong financial results and strong liquidity position amid favorable prices for steel and iron ore.
"This step reduces the dependence on debt capital and thereby gives more flexibility in managing the debt portfolio," the press service of the company noted.

The main shareholders of Metinvest are Rinat Akhmetov's SCM group (71.25%) and Vadim Novinsky's Smart Holding (23.75%), jointly managing the company.
