Moscow, 15 April 2013. The Board of Directors of OAO NOVATEK (“NOVATEK” or the “Company”) has approved to amend the registration documents for the previously approved interest-bearing, non-convertible Russian rouble bonds (“RR bond”).
The Board resolved to amend the Prospectus for the previously approved placement of BO-05, BO-06, BO-07 and BO-08 bond series due to recent changes in the Russian legislation on securities market, which became effective in January 2013.

NOVATEK will issue the RR bond series as necessary for general corporate purposes.
On 16 November 2012, NOVATEK’s Board of Directors approved the regulatory filing and registration of interest-bearing, non-convertible, Russian rouble bonds for the total maximum nominal value of RR 45 billion.
