Moscow, 25 June 2019 – The Supervisory Board of ALROSA, a global leader in diamond mining, approved a new version of the Company’s Dividend Policy at its meeting held on 24 June 2019.

The amendments include adjustments to the methodology for determining the amount of dividends based on the free cash flow1 (FCF).

Depending on the Net Debt 2/ EBITDA3 ratio, the semi-annual dividend payout ratio is determined based on the FCF for the respective period:


For reference:

On 23 April 2019, ALROSA’s Supervisory Board recommended that the General Shareholders’ Meeting distribute 100% of the free cash flow, or RUB 30.3 bn, in 2H 2018 dividends. Therefore, total dividends for 2018, including those paid for 1H 2018, will amount to RUB 73.9 bn, or RUB 10.04 per share, resulting in all-time high dividends in ALROSA’s history.

1Free cash flow is the operating cash flow calculated in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) net of capital expenditure (posted as Purchase of Property, Plant and Equipment on the consolidated IFRS statement of cash flows).

2Net debt is calculated on an IFRS basis as the amount of debt less cash and cash equivalents as well as bank deposits at each reporting date.

3EBITDA stands for earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation calculated for the past twelve months on an IFRS basis.
