Independent Review

Ferrexpo's auditors, Deloitte LLP, has received copies of bank statements directly from a charitable foundation called Blooming Land, as part of its process to verify Blooming Land's use of contributions made by Ferrexpo. Blooming Land is a Ukrainian charity which was established with the primary function of co-ordinating the Group's CSR programme and provides medical and social services to local, regional and national communities throughout Ukraine. As noted in the 1H 2018 results, Blooming Land and its sub-funds are separately managed.

The copy bank statements from Blooming Land contained as yet unexplained discrepancies. This has caused the Board of Ferrexpo to decide to conduct a comprehensive independent review and is in the process of scoping the work.

As reported in the 1H 2018 results, Ferrexpo donated US$9.5 million to Blooming Land in 1H 2018. Ferrexpo has not made any further donations to Blooming Land since May 2018.

The Group intends to announce its FY 2018 results as planned on 20 March 2019. At the current time, the Board cannot guarantee that the review will be complete by then, or complete favourably. Deloitte has indicated that it may qualify or otherwise modify its audit opinion relating to the FY 2018 accounts if this is the case.

Following the Group's 4Q 2018 trading update, as announced on 8 January 2019, Ferrexpo expects full year 2018 EBITDA to be approximately US$500 million (subject to audit).

This announcement contains inside information in relation to the Company. The person responsible for making this notification is Brian McLelland, Interim Company Secretary.
