MYTILINEOS HOLDINGS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT
2015
Economic performance
In 2015, MYTILINEOS Group remained on a steady course of
growth and continued to consolidate its position in all its three
business activity areas, focusing on newmarkets’ 13 entry in the
EPC Projects Sector, on further improving the competitiveness
of the Metallurgy Sector and on strengthening the presence of
Protergia in the electricity market. In particular, the Group’s con-
solidated turnover for 2015 stood at €1,383 million from €1,233
million for 2014 (up 12.2%). Earnings before interest, tax, depre-
ciation and amortisation (EBITDA) stood at €234.4 million, down
7.7% from €253.9 million for 2014, with net profit after tax and
minority rights standing at €47.6 million from €64.9 million the
previous year (down 26.7%). While this performance affirms the
Group’s resilience, it also reflects the pressure from a number of
negative factors, such as the weak domestic economic environ-
ment, the delays in the process for the completion of the energy
and industrial policy, the negative developments in the global
commodities markets and the slowing down of investments in
new energy projects as a result of geopolitical changes in vari-
ous markets.

Metallurgy & Mining Sector
In the Metallurgy sector, the growth rate of global aluminium
demand is expected to remain strong during 2016, thus help-
ing support aluminium prices. After the record-high levels at-
tained at the end of 2014 and their rapid decline fall during 2015,
Premia appear to be stabilised. On the contrary, the significant
decrease in energy prices, raw materials and transportation,
drives production costs to lower levels. Accordingly, low Al-
uminium prices, prevailed also at the beginning of 2016, pose
significant challenges for less competitive, marginal producers,
who are expected to continue curtailing their production levels
in the upcoming months. The developments regarding the mar-
ket’s fundamentals, the performance of emerging economies
and especially the Chinese, the energy costs and the evolution of

the Euro/USD parity, along with the monetary policy by the Cen-
tral Banks, are expected to be the catalysts for the sector in the
months to come. Within this international landscape, the Group
is focusing on further strengthening its competitiveness and is
expecting a satisfactory financial performance from its Metallurgy
Sector in 2016.
EPC Sector
Implementation of the signed backlog, currently standing at €1.2
billion, is expected to continue during 2016. METKA has laid the
foundations for yet another year of satisfactory results, driven
mainly by the projects it has been awarded in the markets of
Ghana, Algeria and Iraq. For the immediate future, METKA will
focus on ensuring the successful implementation of its contracts
abroad and on securing new projects in existing and/or in new
markets, in order to expand its share of the market for energy
infrastructure projects in Europe, Turkey, N. Africa and the Middle
East. In parallel, the company continues to diversify its activities
by expanding to new products, with the establishment of MET-
KA-EGN, active in the fast-growing global solar energy market,
being a recent such example.
Energy Sector
2016 is expected to be a turning point for the Energy Sector, as
the reduction of natural gas prices favours the competitiveness
of the Group’s thermal plants, especially regarding the merit to
order compared to the Lignite fired plants. In addition, PROTER-
GIA is expected to continue increasing its share in the retail elec-
tricity market, while it also keeps up with the implementation of
its investment plan in new RES projects. In this context, the En-
ergy Sector is expected to have an increased contribution in the
Group’s consolidated financial results for 2016.
