On 21 August 2018 Polymetal announced its financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2018.

·     Revenue in 1H 2018 increased by 16%, to US$ 789 million compared to 1H 2017 primarily driven by gold equivalent (GE) production growth of 11%.

·     All-in sustaining cash costs amounted to US$893/GE oz, decreased 1% year-on-year and well within Polymetal's guidance of US$875-925/GE oz.
