DONETSK, Ukraine, April 26, 2011 - SCM decided to enter the real estate sector in 2006. In 2006-2007 we were
building our real estate portfolio in Ukraine and internationally following a
set of fundamental criteria:

- singularity of the property (including its location)

- the potential to grow in value.

SCM bought the property in London at the One Hyde Park residential
development in 2007 as a portfolio investment. Over the past four years the
asset showed a steady annual 5% rise in the value even during the global
financial crisis when the real estate was losing value everywhere in the
world including Ukraine. Experts suggest that the asset will increase in
value over the next few years. SCM believes that the investment in the London
property has been very successful and views the policy of diversifying the
real estate portfolio as effective.
