Further, the Board notes that since the publication of the Announcements, there has been certain press speculation regarding the dividend policy of Norilsk Nickel as a result of the proposed settlement between the Company and Interros. The Board wishes to clarify that, pursuant to the Agreement, Norilsk Nickel is expected to declare dividends in respect of 2012, 2013 and 2014 (to be paid in 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively) in the amount of US$2 billion, US$3 billion and US$3 billion, respectively, and such dividends shall be increased by US$1 billion payable in connection with Norilsk Nickel´s proposed disposal of foreign or non-core energy assets. Moreover, pursuant to the Agreement, the dividends of Norilsk Nickel in respect of 2015 and subsequent years (which shall be payable from 2016) shall be equal to 50% EBITDA of Norilsk Nickel calculated based on the audited consolidated financial statements of Norilsk Nickel according to IFRS for the year in respect of which the dividend is paid. Payment of any such proposed dividends shall be subject to, among other things, applicable law, downward adjustments and other prevailing conditions such as the right of the General Director of Norilsk Nickel to defer in certain cases a portion of the dividends to subsequent periods, or as otherwise agreed by the Company and Millhouse.
Shareholders and investors should note that the transactions contemplated by the Agreement may require the satisfaction of certain conditions and therefore may or may not proceed.
