Energy segment operations update
In 2017, En+ Group power plants generated 68.4 TWh of electric energy (almost flat y-o-y).

Green hydro power output in 2017 was 54.9 TWh (down 2.5% y-o-y).

In 2017, Krasnoyarsk HPP»s total power generation grew 4.1% to 20.1 TWh (up approximately 9.2% compared to long term annual value) on the back of more favourable hydrological conditions (especially in 1H 2017; at the beginning of the year, water levels at the head race of the dam were 2.5 metres higher than at the start of 2016).

However, water inflows to Lake Baikal remained substantially below normal levels (59.6% of normal levels in 2017, compared to 79.4% of normal levels in 2016). In response, the Federal Agency for Water Resources maintained dam water flow levels for the Irkutsk HPP close to the minimal level during 4Q 2017. This resulted in the Group«s Angara cascade HPPs (Irkutsk, Bratsk and Ust-Ilimsk HPPs) reducing their combined power generation in 2017 by 2.2 TWh y-o-y to 34.8 TWh (a decrease of 23% compared to long term average annual output).

In 2017, the Abakan Solar Power Plant generated 6 million kWh (flat y-o-y).

In 2017 in order to partially compensate for lower HPP output, power generation at the Group»s combined heat and power plants («CHPs») increased 6.3% y-o-y to 13.6 TWh.

In 2017, heat generation amounted to 26.7 million Gcal (down 2.6% y-o-y).

Russian energy market update
? According to the System Operator of the United Power System, in FY 2017 power production in Russia was almost flat y-o-y at 1,053.9 TWh (compared to 1048,5 TWh in 2016[9]). Consumption grew 1% to 1,039.9 TWh[10];
? Power production in the first price zone[11] increased by 0.8% to 814.2 TWh. Consumption was up by 0.9% to 800.5 TWh;
? The Siberian integrated energy system (the Company«s key region of operations) produced 202.7 TWh of electricity (down 2.0% y-o-y). Output from HPPs in Siberia decreased by 5.9% y-o-y to 93.9 TWh (thus, the Group»s share in power generation in the Siberian integrated energy system in 2017 increased by 2 pp y-o-y to 58.4%), while thermal power plants and captive power stations increased electricity production by 1.6% y-o-y to 108.7 TWh;
? Electricity consumption in the Siberian integrated energy system reduced 0.6% to 205.9 TWh. This decrease was driven both by higher seasonal temperatures and a high prior year comparator (2016 was a leap year). Thus the average monthly air temperature in 2017 was 6.6 oC higher in January, 2.0 oC higher in May, 4.4 oC higher in October, and 4.8 oC higher in November;
? Water inflows to the Krasnoyarsk Reservoir were above the normal level in FY 2017. The Angara cascade, as in the previous year, underwent a period of low water levels. As a result, the Group«s Angara cascade HPPs operated in line with the instructions from the Yenisei Basin Directorate to provide sufficient levels of water for navigation;
? The Hydrometeorological Centre of Russia forecasts water inflows into the main reservoirs of En+ Group»s Angara cascade generating assets in 1Q 2018 as follows:
o Water inflows into Lake Baikal are expected to amount to 200 — 300 cubic metres per second (54 — 108% of normal, in 1Q 2017 water inflows were 250 cubic metres per second). In 4Q 2017, the useful water inflow was 37.5 cubic metres per second (a 72% decrease compared to 4Q 2016);
o Inflows into the Bratsk Reservoir are expected to reach 170 — 200 cubic metres per second (85% — 112% of normal, in 1Q 2017 water inflows were 197 cubic metres per second). In 4Q 2017, the average monthly inflows were 460 cubic metres per second (almost flat y-o-y).

Metals segment operations update
Aluminium
? In FY 2017, aluminium production[13] totalled 3,707 thousand tonnes, with Siberian smelters representing 94% of total output. Total production dynamics remained largely stable with capacity utilisation reaching 96%;
? In FY 2017, aluminium sales increased 3.6% y-o-y totalling 3,955 thousand tonnes. This increase was achieved largely due to greater third party aluminium products sales (+91.3% y-o-y to 169 thousand tonnes);
? VAP sales reached 1,869 thousand tonnes an increase of 11.4% y-o-y. VAPs accounted for 47% of total sales, up from 44% in FY 2016. The Company expects that the sales mix will trend towards the production mix and targets 50-52% share of VAPs through 2018 on the back of a solid backlog of end-customer product orders for 2018 and the launch of new VAP capacities;
? In FY 2017 the average realised aluminium price[14] increased by 21.5% y-o-y to USD 2,105 per tonne. The increase was due to positive dynamics on the London Metal Exchange («LME») QP[15] component (+23.5% y-o-y to USD 1,942 per tonne). The average realised premium component increased by 2.3% to USD 163 per tonne;
Alumina
? In FY 2017, total alumina production increased by 3.3% y-o-y, totalling 7,773 thousand tonnes mainly due to the ongoing capacity ramp up at Russian (Urals Alumina Refinery) and Ukrainian (Nikolaev) refineries following upgrades completed earlier in 2017. Russian operations accounted for 36% of the Group«s total alumina output.

Bauxite and nepheline ore
? In FY 2017, bauxite output totalled 11,645 thousand tonnes ( — 4.4% y-o-y). The decrease of bauxite production is primarily due to a decline in output in 3Q 2017, as a result of abnormal weather conditions that affected the operational performance of the Bauxite Company of Guyana and Windalco as well as scheduled operational equipment care and maintenance works at mines in Kindia and Timan. Nepheline ore output decreased by 2.3% y-o-y to 4,332 thousand tonnes.

Aluminium market overview[16]
? The LME aluminium price increased 30.8% y-o-y in 2017, reaching USD 2,256 per tonne on January 2, 2018, close to a six-year high, consolidating later at USD 2,200 per tonne as a result of widespread capacity cuts in China and a steady reduction of LME stocks — further evidence of a global market deficit. Rising cost inflation in China resulted in a significant proportion of Chinese aluminium operating capacity barely breaking even by the end of 2017;
? The reported aluminium inventories in the world ex-China fell further to ~ 2.9 million tonnes at the end of 2017, down by approximately 1.0 million tonnes y-o-y;
? The Metal segment»s preliminary estimates show that global aluminium demand grew by 6% y-o-y in 2017 to 64 million tonnes as a result of strong demand across all geographies. Robust demand growth left the global aluminum market balance in a deficit of around 1 million tonnes. The estimated demand for aluminum in China in 2017 grew by 7.8% to 34.9 million tonnes compared to 32.4 million tonnes in 2016. Ex-China demand grew by 3.7% to 29.2 million tonnes for the same period;
? There is strong evidence of the implementation of Supply Side reforms in the Chinese aluminum industry in 2017, with more than 10 million tonnes of illegal operating capacity cuts. As a result, according to Aladdiny data, annualised Chinese aluminum production in November has dropped to 35.4 million tonnes from its peak of 38.6 million tonnes in July 2017. In addition, the announcement by the Chinese
regulator regarding winter capacity cuts, which have now been implemented, will result in annualised production losses of approximately 1 million tonnes of metal, and 4.4 million tonnes of alumina, according to the Company«s estimates.
