1 RUSAL’S GROWTH STRATEGY: FROM RUSSIAN TO GLOBAL ALUMINIUM BUSINESS Pavel Ulianov, Managing Director Corporate Strategy and Development 10th CRU World Aluminium Conference June 13, 2005

2 2 A global leader, from Russia  Formed in 2000: just five years ago!  Top 3 producer of aluminium and alloys globally  9.9% of global aluminium production  2.7 million tonnes of aluminium produced in 2004  Over US$5.4 billion in annual sales in 2004  Today, 63% of products sold directly to end-users (in 2000, 80% via middlemen traders)  Production development and expansion investments exceeded US$534 million in 2004  Over 50,000 employees

We operate in 7 Russian regions and 11 other countries, plus we sell to customers throughout the world From Siberia to the World

4 4 Competing in global markets Advantages  Dynamic company with strong management, focused on growth  Access to Siberian hydro power plants (low-cost energy supplied at average price)  Enormous productivity gains run counter to rising industry costs  A loyal and expanding client base  Strong technological R&D base (ETC and VAMI) Challenges  Dependence on purchased alumina to supplement internal production  Remoteness of smelters from customers and raw materials  Soderberg technology limits performance of some smelters  Improving environmental performance

5 5 Building and sustaining truly global competitiveness 1. Technological edge  Proprietary aluminium smelting technology RA-300 (300 kA)  R&D centre currently testing more advanced cell with 400 kA (RA-400)  Few competitors have such technological capability: Alcan, Alcoa, Norsk Hydro, China 2. Productivity surge  Reduced workforce from 73,000 in 2000 to approximately 47,000 today has dramatically increased labour efficiency and narrowed the gap with competitors  From 77 tonnes per employee in 2000 to 137 tonnes per employee in 2004

6 6 Building and sustaining truly global competitiveness 3. Adding value  Value added product sales (alloys, billets etc) grown from around 15% in 2000 to roughly 40% today  Ambitious but realistic target to raise this share to 50% by 2013  Agreement with Alcoa allows RUSAL to focus on key businesses 4. Customer focus  Sales to global traders dropped from 80% to just 15% of total volume  Since 2000 new sales offices established in US, Germany, Japan and Singapore  Smelter distance not a barrier to improved customer service

7 7 Dynamic growth in aluminium smelting Production grown by 49% (from 1.8 to 2.7 million tonnes) Of which Creep/efficiency: ~200 kt M&A: ~700 kt Bratsk:~150 kt Krasnoyarsk~240 kt Novokuznetsk~310 kt

8 8 Dynamic growth in alumina refining  Increased by 2.6 million tonnes or 217% to 3.8 million tonnes  From 7th to 5th position in global league table  Self sufficiency grown from 35% to over 70% Of which Creep/efficiency: 200 kt M&A: 2,400 kt Nikolaev 460 kt Achinsk 350 kt Friguia 770 kt Boxitogorsk 50 kt 20% of QAL 770 kt

9 9 Achieving our vision To become the world’s largest and most profitable aluminium producer by 2013, RUSAL will:  Grow aluminium production to 5 million tonnes per year  Grow alumina production to 8 million tonnes per year  Raise alloy production to 50% of overall out-put  Position RUSAL as one of the world’s lowest-cost capex-per-tonne producers  Double current labour productivity  Enhance our employer of choice status (quality work environment and competitive salary)

10 10 A clear strategy for delivery: alumina Development plan for alumina capacity to 2013

11 11 Attaining growth through 80% alumina self-sufficiency 4.8mt of alumina capacity added by 2013 Territories for growth

12 12 A clear strategy for delivery: aluminium Development plan for aluminium capacity to 2013

13 13 Attaining aluminium growth  Greenfield projects should account for 81% of the growth  Khakassky shown as the only brownfield – 13% of growth  All smelters should add 4% to capacity through creep  Current plan assumes only 9% of growth outside Russian Federation 2.3 mt of aluminium capacity added by 2013

14 14 Power projects to bolster growth  Security of power supply and pricing is an issue for the industry  Rusal’s power advantage lies in Russia and former republics  Rusal is involved in power projects for 44% of its greenfield smelter capacity Smelter fuel sources

15 15 Leveraging opportunities in Russia: Komi Project Highlights  Komi region start-up planned by 2008  Bauxite reserves JORC 190 mt. Annual volume 1,400 kt  RUSAL equity share 700kt  RUSAL acquired 50% in the project from its current promoter, SUAL  SUAL and RUSAL will jointly manage the construction and the new assets under a shareholder agreement  SUAL will also sell 500 to 700 kt of alumina to RUSAL Rationale  Reduces alumina transport cost for RUSAL  Reduces dependence on the spot alumina market for RUSAL  IFC/EBRD involvement – provides international recognition  Government support – positive for both companies

16 16 Investing in World Class assets  largest alumina refinery in the world  producing 3.85 million tonnes p.a.  a joint venture between RUSAL (20%), Comalco (38.6%) and Alcan (41.4%)  largest ever Russian investment into Australia On 1 April 2005, RUSAL acquired 20% shareholding in Queensland Alumina Limited (QAL)

17 17 QAL: a bridge to the future Increases RUSAL’s alumina supply:  RUSAL’s equity alumina production increases from 3.3 Mt to approximately 4.1Mt (+24%)  RUSAL’s share of QAL production (770Kt) currently meets 15% of RUSAL’s Siberian smelter needs QAL has significant expansion potential to over 5Mt p.a.  QAL owners will continue to evaluate expansion options for the refinery

18 18 Priority issues for next 10 years  Efficient greenfield construction lower capex, capital control, deliver on time and to budget  Development of improved (operationally and capex wise) technologies, for example RA 400  Raise capacity creep increase current efficiency at current smelters  Active value adding M&A activity with prudent assumptions  Continue to monitor and control costs (especially in alumina)  Improve internal processes and risk management procedures to enable controlled and orderly growth
