“The financial results for the full year 2021 that we present here to you today reflect a very different time, in a period that pre-dates the invasion. We make no fanfare in presenting these results, but stand united with the people of Ukraine. In 2021, despite the lingering impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic and significant volatility in the iron ore markets, we maintained our focus on safety, growth in producing high quality iron ore pellets and reduction of carbon emissions,” said Lucio Genovese, Non-executive Chair of Ferrexpo.
At the same time, since Russia invaded Ukraine, the Board of Directors decided to defer any decisions on interim dividend. The Board “will consider, as appropriate, whether or not to propose a further interim dividend in respect of 2021.”

In Q1 2022, company produced 2.7 million tons of pellets, which is the same as in Q1 2021, and 11% less than in Q4 2022.
