Reference is made to the interim report of United Company RUSAL Plc
(Paris:RUSAL) (Paris:RUAL) (the “Company”) published on 27 August 2012

(as defined in the Interim Report) was unable to obtain consolidated interim
financial information of OJSC MMC Norilsk Nickel (“Norilsk Nickel”) as at and
for the three- and six-month periods ended 30 June 2012. Consequently the
Group estimated its share in the profits of Norilsk Nickel for the period
ended 30 June 2012 based on publicly available information reported by Norilsk

The Company noted that on 12 October 2012, Norilsk Nickel published a press
release (“Press Release”) headed “OJSC MMC Norilsk Nickel announces unaudited
interim financial results under IFRS for six months ended 30 June 2012” on its
website http://www.nornik.ru/en/press/news/3642/.

The Company is assessing the impact of the financial information set out in
the Press Release (which, if any, may have a material adverse effect) on the
relevant information set out in its Interim Report. The Company shall (if
appropriate) update investors of such impact in details in its third quarter
results announcement which would also include adjusted figures and related
discussion and assumptions (where appropriate).
