Management comments

Nazim Efendiev, CEO of Metalloinvest Management Company, commented:

“For 9 months of 2021, the Company's production indicators remain at a high level. During the reporting period, we increased supplies to our key sales markets - Russia and Europe. The significant growth in demand from our European partners focused on the high quality of both iron ore and metallurgical products is a reflection of the global agenda for the decarbonization of the industry. In October, an agreement was signed on the construction of HBI-4 at Lebedinsky GOK with a capacity of 2.08 million tons - this project will consolidate the Company's leadership in the marketable HBI market and strengthen our position as a leading supplier of a key product for the transition to green metallurgy.
