The move demonstrates the Group’s diligence in debt servicing and also releases Metinvest from scheduled principal repayments for the next few months, providing greater financial flexibility during a steel price down cycle. The payment is a planned use of part of the net proceeds from Metinvest Group’s recent dual currency bond transaction, which was aimed at extending the maturity profile of its outstanding Eurobonds and received strong support from the global investor community, as well as top European financial institutions.
