Further to the Group’s recent operational updates in relation to the ongoing situation in Ukraine, Ferrexpo plc (LSE: FXPO), the world's 3rd largest exporter of high grade iron ore pellets to the global steel industry, hereby provides the following updates.

Corporate Update

Given the ongoing incursion by Russian armed forces into the territory of Ukraine, the Group’s Board of Directors has decided to delay the publication date of its full year results, which were previously scheduled for publication on 16 March 2022. This decision has been made due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, which is requiring significant management attention and therefore impacting on the usual internal processes for preparing the Group’s full year results. The additional time provided by this delay will allow the Group to consider the full impact of these events on the accounts, and will provide more time for the Group's independent auditor to carry out its own audit procedures, some of which will be impacted by the current situation in Ukraine.

At the present time, given the uncertainties surrounding the situation in Ukraine, the Group is not in the position to provide a date as to when the Company’s full year financial accounts for 2021 will be published.

Logistics Update

The situation in Ukraine remains complex and changeable. The Group is aware of reports of the Ukrainian railway network providing limited capacity to its freight customers, and the Group can confirm that it has dispatched a proportion of its production to the western border of Ukraine to customers in Europe. It remains unclear as to the ongoing availability of railing capacity and, if available, the quantity of pellets that the Group may be able to deliver to its European customers.

The Group’s continued primary focus remains the safety of its workforce in Ukraine. Further updates will be made as and when appropriate.
