ALROSA Emerges at No. 4 Globally in 2019 Value Creators Report

ALROSA has attained the fourth rank globally, and emerged as No. 1 in Russia,  in a ranking  of  mining companies by total shareholder return (TSR), in the 2019 Value Creators report     compiled by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG).

“TSR is a key metric that shows the return to a company's shareholder, combining share price movements and dividends paid,” ALROSA explained.

Companies with a capitalisation exceeding US$ 3.5 billion were considered for the 2019 Value Creators rankings. “According to the BCG analysts, ALROSA delivered an average TSR of 29.9% over the five years from 2014 through 2018, well above the industry’s median of 3.1%,” ALROSA revealed.

The Value Creators Rankings, which have been published annually since 1999, this year  covered around 2,250 companies that trade at least 20% of their shares in public capital markets and have been listed on a world stock exchange for the last five years. The companies are organised into 33 industry groups and ranked based on the average annual TSR performance.

“In 2018, ALROSA’s TSR amounted to 46%, while its market cap as at the end of the year grew almost by a third, surpassing RUB 726 billion,” the Company stated. “In April, ALROSA’s Supervisory Board recommended to distribute RUB 30.3 billion as dividends for 2H 2018. Together with the dividends for the first half of the year, the total dividend payout for 2018 amounted to RUB 73.9 billion, which is an all-time high for the Company.”

It will be recalled as reported earlier, that in early June 2019, ALROSA scored among the best companies globally as part of the international Extel Survey of analysts and investors held in 2019.
