Annual meeting with analysts takeaways

Briefing
On 21-Jan-2014 we had the opportunity to attend Mytilineos Group presentation regarding
the evaluation of 2013 and the prospects of 2014. During the annual presentation the CEO
and chairman of the Group Mr. Mytilineos referred to various issues covering all segments of
interest of the group activities: In specifics:

EPC Sector (METKA)
METKA is seeking new projects in Northern Africa while Syria 700m budgeted project is
highly likely very possible to restart in 2014. Recall that the recently awarded project of
226m in Greece regarding Ergose is funded by "ESPA EU subsidised thus effectively
reducing receivables risk. The devaluation of the Turkish lira is a not considered as a major
threat for the Group since it has completed the projects in Turkey while any other project
that may be awarded in the future will be US dollar denominated. Management expects a
strong year across all lines while METKA remains the cash cow of the Group with an
estimated Net Cash position of 200mn at the end of 2013, which could lead to generous
dividends or capital returns.. We expect positive developments in the near term regarding
new projects in Libya, Algeria and Iraq.

Energy Division
Energy segment will post satisfactory results as during the 9M13 period electricity demand
was strong in Greece while in Q4 the group will receive higher capacity certificates. Energy
demand in 2014 should be slightly increased in the 0-2% range with better outlook for SMP
(system marginal prices) while lower cost of natural gas should benefit energy production. A
reduction in supply prices from Gazprom will have a positive effect on EBITDA by c. EUR20m
while a retroactive application of the reduced price could generate significant one-off gains
between 15m - 60m subject to the retroactive period taken into account (6,12 or 18
months). In the investment front the Group plans to install another 70MW of wind capacity
during the next two years.

Aluminium of Greece (AoG)
Aluminium of Greece has completed c. 90% of the mellon project lowering operating cost
by $125m setting a new cost production equilibrium at 1,800 1,850 $/tn. New tariff
agreement with PPC remains a key issue as management seems quite sceptical to continue
its smelting business if significant higher tariffs will be applied by PPC. Low prices in LME are
offset by higher premiums (currently at 300 400 $/tn). Optimism regarding LME prices is
justified by increased global demand due to developments related to new applications in the
auto industry, which will involve the use of more Aluminium in the construction process. We
consider increased capacity to 185,000 tons (plus10,000 tons) in 2014 as a positive catalyst,
which along with serious cost cutting efforts could increase divisional EBITDA to 90m from
20m in 2013. Finally, AoG has extended Glencore contract thus securing a significant
amount of dry alumina and aluminium production (~30%) at a10% premium vs. LME spot
prices.

Debt Bond Issuance
. Following the sale of a 5% stake that was classified as treasury stock and a 6% stake of
Metka to Fairfax Groups Net Debt was effectively reduced at 500m. Management targets a
Net Debt/EBITDA ratio of 1-2x for 2014.. A floated bond issue is in the cards this year only if
it makes financial sense as average interest for the Group stands at 6.5%. A lower six in
our opinion could trigger a bond issuance that would be used for the refinancing of 250-
300m of existing debt.

View
Management stated that 2013 annual results will be broadly in line with consensus
(Turnover: 1.54bn, EBITDA 250m, Net 77.7m). Going forward we see lower
risks ahead as METKA is being awarded new projects with high margins while
Metallurgy has strong potential to take advantage of lower operational costs.
Strong international presence (85% of AoG sales and 80% of METKA projects)
offer geographical diversification while the recent arbitration ruling with PPC
provides a good base for a new tariff agreement. We are buyers at current levels
and we like both listed entities as they provide better visibility and improved
environment for 2014.
