As of the effective day of Article 6 of the Law, any placement, organization of circulation and, unless permitted by respective Russian Government authority (please see the next paragraph), circulation of the Company's ADRs is prohibited, no new deposits of ordinary shares into the ADR facility would be possible and the ADRs would not have voting rights and dividends would not be paid on such ADRs until they are converted into ordinary shares as per the terms of the Deposit Agreement. The rights of holders to respective ADRs would be determined as of the effective day of Article 6 the Law.


The Law provides for a possibility to obtain a permission to continue the ADR program and respective trading in the ADRs outside Russia pursuant to a procedure set by the Government of Russia in Regulation No. 672 published on 18 April 2022. The Company currently evaluates available options including whether to apply for such permission.
