As mentioned in the Annual Results Announcement, as of 27 March 2014, being the date of approval of UC RUSAL’s consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2013, the Company was unable to obtain the consolidated financial statements of OJSC MMC Norilsk Nickel (“Norilsk Nickel”) as at and for the year ended 31 December 2013. Consequently, the Group has estimated its share of profit and other comprehensive income of its associate, Norilsk Nickel, for the year ended 31 December 2013 based on the then latest publicly available information reported by Norilsk Nickel adjusted by the Group to account for Norilsk Nickel’s performance in the remaining part of the relevant reporting period.  On 7 April 2014, Norilsk Nickel published its audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2013, prepared in accordance with IFRS (“Norilsk Nickel Financial Statements”) on its own website. The management of the Company is reviewing the Norilsk Nickel Financial Statements and is of the preliminary view that they may possibly have material adverse impact on the Company’s published consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2013 (as stated in the Annual Results Announcement).  As soon as the Company has updated its consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2013 and the auditors have performed the relevant audit procedures with respect to the Norilsk Nickel Financial Statements, the Company will make further announcement containing the Company´s updated consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2013.
