On June 25, 2010 the ALROSA Executive Committee held its regular meeting under the chairmanship of the Company’s President (CEO) Fyodor Andreev in Mirny, Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).
The Executive Committee discussed proposed adjustments to the Company’s plan and budget for 2010. Adjustments are required to be made due to a number of factors: growing core product (i.e. rough and polished diamonds) sales, anticipated indexation of employee wages and salaries, a necessary increase in expenses on repair and maintenance of core production facilities, lower interest rates and borrowed funds servicing costs, and some other factors.
Therefore the following adjustments were endorsed and submitted for approval to the Company’s Supervisory Board:
- larger volume of rough diamond sales for the ALROSA Group by USD 105.4 million, this including an increase by USD 40.0 million for ALROSA Co. Ltd., an increase by USD 13.0 million for OJSC ALROSA-Nyurba, an increase by USD 45.9 million for OJSC Almazy Anabara (Diamonds of Anabar), and an increase by USD 6.5 million for OJSC Severalmaz. Thus, in 2010 the adjusted aggregate volume of rough diamond sales is expected at USD 3,282.2 million, and the adjusted aggregate volume of polished diamond sales at USD 124.9 million;
