Participation in depository receipts programme

American and Global Depository Receipt programmes continued throughout 2017 for the Company’s shares trading on the OTC market of the U.S., UK, Germany, and other countries. One ADR is equal to five common shares of Gazprom Neft PJSC. The depository bank for the Company’s depository receipt programme is The Bank of New York Mellon.

As of the end of 2017, the total number of ADR issued for common shares was equal to 101 million shares (2.1% of the Company’s charter capital). The decrease in the total number of ADR issued for common shares is due to the current redemption of ADR over the course of the year amidst restrictions on the issue of new ADR.
