17 June 2021 – The Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting of ALROSA elected a new Supervisory Board. The number of independent directors grew from three to five as compared to the previous year. Independent directors will thus make a third of the Supervisory Board in the 2021/2022 corporate year.

The meeting held in absentia on 16 June 2021 elected 15 members of the Supervisory Board of PJSC ALROSA:

As compared to the previous composition of the Supervisory Board, the new members are Igor Danilenko, Vasily Efimov, and Alexander Cherepanov.

In accordance with corporate governance best practices and recommendations of the Russian Code of Corporate Governance, the company shareholders are consistent in increasing the number of independent directors on the Supervisory Board. The number of independent board members nominated by the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) grew from one to two.

The next meeting of the Supervisory Board will appoint its chair and members of committees.

The shareholders also approved the Annual Report and annual accounting (financial) statements of PJSC ALROSA for 2020, distribution of net profit for 2020 and retained earnings from previous years and dividend payout, resolved to pay remuneration to the members of the Supervisory Board and the Auditing Committee, who are not government officials, and elected the Auditing Committee.

The annual general meeting approved amendments to some internal regulations, including the Regulations on Remuneration to Members of the Supervisory Board of PJSC ALROSA, in line with the recommendations of the ALROSA Corporate Governance Code on remuneration to members of the Supervisory Board. The said amendments de-link the remuneration from annual revenue and establish a flat amount of its basic component.
