Aluminum giant Rusal share price halved after United States sanctions
Apr 10, 2018, 18:59
Worldwide trading houses have stopped buying aluminum from Rusal because of the sanctions, according to executives at five companies that regularly buy from the company, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the discussions. This reportedly cost its largest shareholder Vladimir Potanin around $1.3 billion, even though he was not among the 26 people and 15 companies blacklisted on April 6 by the US authorities in response to the diplomatic fallout of the Sergei Skripal poisoning.

It said Deripaska was sanctioned "for having acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, a senior official of the Government of the Russian Federation".

The company which supplies seven percent of the world's aluminum supply, is now at risk of defaulting on part of its debt, the AFP reported. The state-controlled bank is seen as a barometer for the wider Russian economy. Polymetal, a Russian miner listed in London, was the biggest FTSE 250 faller, down 18%. As Bloomberg points out, the move also raises questions for Glencore and its billionaire chief Ivan Glasenberg, the commodity giant who is one of Rusal's top shareholders, owning an 8.75 percent stake and also the biggest buyer of its metal, having bought $2.4 billion of metal from it a year ago. "This is an outrageous business from the point of view of illegality, from the point of view of flouting all the norms, and of course careful analysis is needed here", said spokesman Dmitry Peskov. It was mentioned that the USA sanctions are highly likely to will have a negative impact on the business of the company and its development.
EN+, which only listed in London in November having raised $1 billion from City investors despite fears over the potential of further sanctions being imposed on Russian Federation, said it would focus on maintaining its operations and ensuring it "abides by all applicable laws and regulations".
However, the bank did not say anything with regard to review of insolvency cases which was part of board meeting agenda for today. Approximately 5,108,606 shares were traded during trading, a decline of 36% from the average daily volume of 7,936,838 shares.
