No consideration is payable for the making or vesting of the awards by the beneficiaries. No PSP awards were vested or exercised up to the date of this announcement.

Under the PSP, options are exercisable following a four-year vesting period (with an additional mandatory holding period of one year following vesting), subject to performance measures determined by Polymetal. For this award, vesting is based on relative TSR, measured against the constituents of the FTSE Gold Mines Index, as well as the Company’s absolute TSR. Peers are ranked and the Company’s position determines vesting (0% vests for below median performance; 20% vests at median performance; 100% vests at top decile performance and above). No award will vest if absolute TSR is negative, regardless of relative performance. For more details on the PSP, please refer to the 2017 Polymetal Annual Report and Accounts available on the Company’s website at www.polymetalinternational.com.

This notification is made in accordance with Article 19 of the Market Abuse Regulation.
