The Company’s Board of Directors has approved a further USD 125 million to be paid in December 2017 to holders of the Company’s shares and global depositary receipts as at 30 November 2017.

Earlier this year, En+ Group already declared and paid interim dividends in respect of 2017 totalling USD 201 million, of which USD 144 million are pass-through dividends paid by UC RUSAL.

In 2017, the Company adopted a dividend policy to pay, on at least a semi-annual basis, dividends which will be equal to the sum of:

  • 75% of Free Cash Flow of En+ Power, subject to a minimum of USD 250 million per year and
  • 100% of dividends received from UC RUSAL.

Any future decision to declare and pay dividends will be subject to applicable law and commercial considerations.

Andrey Yashchenko, CFO, En+ Group, commented: “We are fully committed to our dividend policy, which underlines the strength of our business and further reinforces our compelling investment case.”

En+ Group announced its intention to float on the London Stock Exchange in October 2017 and expects to list in November 2017.
