Effect of sale of NLMK Belgium Holdings’ shares on NLMK Group's consolidated financial statements

Moscow, 29 October 2013. On 30 September 2013 NLMK (LSE: NLMK) reported that Belgian state-owned company SOGEPA (Société Wallonne de Gestion et de Participations S.A.) had acquired a 20.5% interest in NLMK Belgium Holdings S.A. (NBH) for EUR 91.1m. NBH comprises the production and trading companies of NLMK Europe, other than NLMK Dansteel.

Following a review of the accounting treatment of the transaction, NLMK confirms that in light of the corporate governance rights afforded to SOGEPA the NLMK Group’s investment in NBH will be accounted for in the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP under the equity method starting from 30 September 2013.

NLMK Group brought in SOGEPA as a strategic investor in the context of the continuing restructuring of its European assets aimed at further enhancing efficiency and optimizing costs.
