Polyus signed a new credit line with Sberbank

Polyus Finance plc (the "Issuer") notes the announcement made earlier today by PJSC Polyus (LSE, MOEX - PLZL) ("Polyus", the "Company") about signing an agreement to provide a credit line facility with Sberbank in a total amount of RUB 65 billion due in 2024 (the "New Facility") to refinance existing Sberbank credit line facility due in 2019 (the "Existing Facility").

In 2014, Polyus utilised the Existing Facility in the amount of RUB 33 billion and subsequently swapped it into US dollars. The Company plans to repay the principal amount and liabilities under cross-currency swaps in the amount of approximately US$ 1 billion in 2019, in line with the current maturity schedule.

The funds under the New Facility will become available for drawdown by maturity of the Existing Facility in April 2019.


The Polyus group is the largest gold producer in Russia and one of the top 10 gold miners globally with the lowest cost position. Based on its 2016 Ore Reserves and Mineral Resources, the Polyus group ranks second by attributable gold reserves and third by attributable gold resources among the world's largest gold mining companies.

The Polyus group's principal operations are located in Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk and Magadan
regions and the Sakha Republic (Yakutia).
