OAO Severstal ("Severstal", the “Company”) (LSE: SVST; MICEX-RTS: CHMF), one of the world's leading vertically integrated steel and steel-related mining companies, is today hosting its annual Capital Markets Day in London to update investors and analysts on progress in executing its stated strategy.

Presentations will be given by the senior management team led by Christopher Clark (Chairman) and Alexey Mordashov (Chief Executive Officer).  The team will demonstrate that Severstal is well positioned to continue its outperformance helped by further internal efficiencies and organic growth.  This includes an asset structure aligned with strategic priorities, further progress in implementing the Business System of Severstal and continued targeted investment.

Alexey Mordashov, Chief Executive Officer, said: “While the global economic picture remains a challenging one, we will show today why Severstal is able to outperform during difficult as well as good times. Last year we set out the fundamental strengths of the business which include a strong exposure to emerging markets, a high level of vertical integration, well-invested and highly efficient assets and the strength-in-depth of our management team. These qualities underpin our resilience in more turbulent markets and enable us to continue with the execution of our strategy as a focused steel and steel-related mining business operating globally with the objective of achieving industry leading financial targets.”
