Prices for rough and polished diamonds will grow

23 march 2012

Prices for rough and polished diamonds will grow. This forecast was made by Ilya Yuzhanov, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of ALROSA, the world's largest diamond mining company. He also commented on demand and prices and spoke about the company’s plans to go public in an interview to the Russia 24 TV Channel later cited by
Ilya Yuzhanov specified that currently the company is not so much discussing plans to enter the stock market as is focused on a free float of the company’s shares owned by the Russian Federation and the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). According to the Chairman of the Supervisory Board, there are several points of view on the extent to which and how to privatize the shares. One option is to float a 14% stake including 7% owned by the Russian Federation and 7% owned by the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). "This option is supported by the Board of Directors of the company. For them, this is the most viable option. But this does not mean that it will ultimately be approved," Ilya Yuzhanov concluded.
As for the overall state of the diamond market, the diamond mining companies do not feel the waves of the crisis affecting their business. "The number of large new deposits is not growing. Older deposits are gradually worked out, so there is no reason to wait for some great amount of diamond supplies suddenly thrown into the market. Demand is increasing; hence, there is no reason to reduce prices. They are to grow constantly and consistently. Therefore, we are optimistic about market trends," Ilya Yuzhanov summarized.
