* Result of poll of independent shareholders only.

Notes:

1. Any proxy arrangement which gave discretion to the Chairman has been included in the "for" totals.

2. A "vote withheld" is not a vote under English law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes "for" or "against" a resolution.

3. The issued share capital of EVRAZ plc as at 15 June 2021 is 1,506,527,294 ordinary shares. The Company holds 47,837,582 ordinary shares in treasury. The total number of voting rights attaching to the ordinary shares of the Company is therefore 1,458,689,712.

   4.     The scrutineer of the poll was Computershare Investor Services PLC. 
   5.     All percentages are rounded to two decimal points. 

As advised on 11 May 2021, following the successful outcome of the Annual General Meeting poll, Mr. Stephen Odell, Mr. James Rutherford and Ms. Sandra Stash have been appointed as non-executive directors of the Company with effect from 15 June 2021.

The Board notes the outcome of the poll results for resolution 9, where Mr. Izosimov secured 61.92% of the independent shareholders votes for his re-election. The Board understands that some shareholders are expressing their concerns over the Board's gender diversity level which is presently below the Hampton-Alexander review recommendation, with only two of the Board's eleven members being female. It is the Company's intention to comply with the Hampton-Alexander recommendations as directors retire and suitable candidates can be identified. As Chairman of the Nominations Committee, Mr. Izosimov will consult with shareholders and take their views into account during future recruitment searches.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, a copy of the resolutions passed at the Meeting will shortly be available for inspection on the National Storage Mechanism which can be accessed at:
