JSC National Atomic Company “Kazatomprom” (“Kazatomprom” or “the Company”) announces that its reviewed, unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements and notes for the first three months ended 31 March 2023, prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), are now available on the Company’s website at: www.kazatomprom.kz.
Interim three-month and nine-month financial reporting is not a London Stock Exchange (“LSE”) or Astana International Exchange (“AIX”) listing requirement for Kazatomprom. However, the Company must prepare financial statements each quarter to fulfil certain obligations for its debt securities listed on the Kazakhstan Stock Exchange (“KASE”), under existing loan covenants, and to meet regulatory requirements under local laws in Kazakhstan. Once the financial statements are filed with the local regulatory bodies, they become publicly available and are therefore part of the Company’s disclosure record. Fulfillment of the abovementioned covenants does not require the preparation of an accompanying Operating and Financial Review (“OFR”) to the interim reporting obligations.
With respect to formal periodic disclosures to the investment community in 2023, Kazatomprom expects to:
- provide stakeholders with a quarterly operations and trading update approximately one month after the end of each reporting period, in which annual operational and sales guidance metrics will be disclosed and/or updated; and
- release a full financial report biannually, including audited full-year financial statements with an OFR, and unaudited, reviewed, half-year financial statements with an OFR, both within the timelines prescribed by AIX and LSE regulations.
The Company expects to release in August 2023 its 2Q23 Operations and Trading Update results and the condensed interim consolidated financial statements with an independent auditor's review for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 with an accompanying OFR for the six months ended 30 June 2023.
