PROPOSED ADOPTION OF A CHINESE NAME AND AMENDMENTS TO THE MEMORANDUM AND ARTICLES

The board of directors (the “Board”) of United Company RUSAL Plc (the “Company”) announces that the Company proposes to adopt and register the Chinese name “ 俄 鋁 ” as the Chinese version of the Company’s name (the “Proposed Adoption of Chinese Name”). The Board is of the opinion that the Chinese version of the Company’s name (the “Chinese name”) will allow for better identification of the Company’s name and easier access to the Company’s corporate communication documents for Chinese speaking investors, therefore potentially contributing to improvements in trading liquidity of the Company’s securities. The adoption of the Chinese name is also expected to allow unification of the Company’s name in Chinese (currently the Company is generally known by multiple unofficial Chinese names by the market) and is in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders of the Company (the “Shareholders”) as a whole.

The Proposed Adoption of Chinese Name is subject to (i) the passing of a special resolution by the Shareholders at an extraordinary general meeting of the Company (the “EGM”) to approve the Proposed Adoption of Chinese Name; and (ii) the approval by the Registrar of Companies in Jersey.

Subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set out above, the Proposed Adoption of Chinese Name will take effect from the date of entry of the Chinese name on the register of companies maintained by the Registrar of Companies in Jersey (the “Jersey Register”) and the issuance by the Registrar of Companies in Jersey of a certificate in connection with the entry of the Chinese name on the Jersey Register. The Company will then carry out all necessary filing procedures with the Companies Registry in Hong Kong.
