Q3 2021 vs. Q2 2021 ANALYSIS:

Consolidated operational results

-- Production: Hot metal output grew by 4% qoq to 2.73 mln tonnes due to end of scheduled BF repairs. Crudesteel production raised to 2.88 mln tonnes (+4% qoq), as a result of completed BOF shop and casting machinesupgrade. The upgrade will allow us to increase crude BOF steel output by 0.5 mln tonnes per annum.

-- Steel sales were up by 1% qoq to 2.69 mln tonnes, due to strong sales of pig iron and slabs. Sales of HVAdecreased by 12% qoq to 1.15 mln tonnes on the back of customer's expectations of further price decline. Sales ofhot-rolled steel and plate increased by 1% qoq to 1.12 mln tonnes. The total share of export sales volume,including sales of pig iron increased by 6 ppts qoq to 51% due to a softening of the demand in Russia.

-- Total share of high value-added (HVA) products amounted to 43% (-6 ppts qoq) due to softening demand andincrease of pig iron sales. If we don't take into account the increase in pig iron shipments, the HVA share in theproduct portfolio has not changed almost qoq.

-- Raw materials sales: Sales of coal decreased by 55% qoq to 0.13 mln tonnes, driven mainly by a decline insteam coal sales due lower output qoq because of long wall repositioning. Iron ore sales were down by 17% qoq to1.09 mln tonnes, driven by a redistribution of sales to Cherepovets steel mill, coupled with lower pelletproduction on the back of repairs.

Consolidated financial results

-- Revenue increased by 9% qoq to USD3,206 mln due to higher sales volumes and increase in weighted averagesteel prices. Sales growth was primarily driven by export markets with an increase of revenue from the NorthAmerica region (4x growth qoq) as well as from the Middle East region (2x growth qoq).

-- EBITDA increased to USD1,723 mln (+5% qoq), higher revenue was partially impacted by the additional exportduties imposed by the Russian government. EBITDA margin was 54% (-2 ppts qoq).

-- Free Cash Flow increased to USD992 mln (+6% qoq), driven by higher EBITDA and lower build-up of workingcapital(-USD58 mln). The build-up of inventories associated with the growth of export sales share was partially compensatedby an increase of accounts payable and advances received. CAPEX amounted to USD284 mln (+4% qoq).
