Being fully committed to perform its obligations
towards all noteholders, the Issuer is currently considering ways to
address uncertainties that some holders of, and persons involved in,
servicing the Notes (the “Servicing Parties”) may be facing as a
result of sanctions targeting Russia which have been imposed by a
number of countries, including the U.S., the EU, the UK, and as a
result of certain measures taken by Russian authorities to stabilize
and support Russian financial and currency markets. The Issuer,
therefore, intends to have discussions with both the noteholders and
the Servicing Parties.
In order to facilitate the above discussions and
the implementation of solutions that may be based on them (which may
include, among others, amendments to the Note documentation), the
Issuer kindly requests noteholders to identify themselves by
providing their and their broker’s contact details, the Note
issuance and the principal amount of the Notes currently held by them
to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions in connection with the above should be
directed to Corporate finance and IR department of NLMK
