Mechel Reports Court Decisions Entry into Force

Moscow, Russia September 14, 2017 Mechel PAO (MOEX: MTLR; NYSE: MTL), a leading Russian mining and metals company, reports a court decision that may have an impact on the value of Mechel PAOs shares.

According to court information, the Fifteenth Arbitration Court of Appeal left unchanged the decision to charge Mechel PAO jointly with other respondent parties a sum of 12.7 billion rubles to recover Rostov Electrometallurgical Plant OOO’s damages.

The lawsuit was based on the claim that Mechel jointly with other respondent parties caused damages to the enterprise by their actions in 2009-2013. The company does not admit these allegations and insists that all deals made within the framework of its cooperation with Rostov Electrometallurgical Plant were transacted based on market economy conditions and so could not damage the enterprise’s operations.

Mechel PAO does not agree with the court’s decision and will appeal it in a court of cassation.
