Fitch upgrades Metalloinvest rating to Investment Grade

29 June 2021

Metalloinvest (the Company), a leading global iron ore and HBI producer and supplier, and one of the regional producers of high-quality steel, today announces that Fitch Ratings (Fitch) has upgraded the Companys corporate rating to BBB- with a stable outlook from BB+/stable.

According to Fitchs statement, the rating upgrade reflects the Companys robust financial results, underpinned by its commitment to a more conservative financial policy, namely systematic debt reduction and a strong operational profile with competitive cost positioning.

Alexey Voronov, Deputy CEO Chief Financial Officer of Metalloinvest, commented:

We are delighted that Fitch recognises the Companys track record of corporate governance improvements, prudent financial policy and overall strong credit metrics. Investment grade is a great achievement that the Company was able to deliver after 10 years of presence in international capital markets, following its debut Eurobond issue in 2011.
