/KASE, July 7, 2020/ – NAC Kazatomprom (Nur-Sultan), whose bonds are
officially listed on Kazakhstan Stock Exchange (KASE), has provided KASE with
the following press release of July 6, 2020:
JSC National Atomic Company "Kazatomprom" ("Kazatomprom" or "the Company")
announces the following update related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic
on the Company’s business and operations.
"Kazatomprom's main priority is the health and wellbeing of our staff and their
families, our partners, and the communities where we operate," said Galymzhan
Pirmatov, chief executive officer of Kazatomprom. "In April, we announced
measures to protect our people by reducing the number of employees on sites to
minimum possible levels, for a period of three months. Throughout that time, we
have followed government restrictions and health advice, however, we believe
that the pandemic-related risks still remain too high for a full return of
production employees to our sites. We are therefore extending the period of
reduced operational activity for an additional month, with the intention of
gradually increasing mine site staff levels at the beginning of August, if it
is deemed safe to do so".
