Proposed Final Dividend for 2021

In light of the strong performance in 2021, continued market demand for forms of high grade iron ores and the resilience the Group has shown during Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the Board of Directors ("Board") of Ferrexpo propose a final dividend for the 2021 financial year end of 6.6 US cents per share (final dividend for 2020: 13.2 US cents per share), for approval by shareholders at the AGM on 15 June 2022.

The proposed final dividend reflects the Board's confidence in the Group, the current situation in Ukraine, and Ferrexpo's ability to continue to operate while supporting the Ukrainian economy, through providing employment, generating revenues for the government of Ukraine and supporting communities through the Ferrexpo Humanitarian Fund.

If approved by shareholders at the AGM, total dividends paid in respect of 2021 will be 52.8 US cents per share (2020: 85.8 US cents per share), and payment of the final dividend would be made on 4 July 2022 to those shareholders on the register at the close of business on 17 June 2022. Dividends will be paid in UK pounds sterling, with an election to receive in US dollars.
