Release date- 21092017 - Volcan Investments Ltd ('Volcan'), the majority shareholder of Vedanta Resources Plc (the 'Company'), has today announced that it intends to make an additional investment in Anglo American Plc shares of GBP1.25 billion to GBP1.5 billion.

The Company confirms that the proposed investment is being made by Volcan alone, and that the Company is not participating in this investment.

Volcan had made an investment of GBP2.0 billion in Anglo American Plc in March 2017.

This press release contains 'forward-looking statements' - that is, statements related to future, not past, events. In this context, forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance, and often contain words such as 'expects,' 'anticipates,' 'intends,' 'plans,' 'believes,' 'seeks,' 'should' or 'will.' Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. For us, uncertainties arise from the behaviour of financial and metals markets including the London Metal Exchange, fluctuations in interest and/or exchange rates and metal prices; from future integration of acquired businesses; and from numerous other matters of national, regional and global scale, including those of a political, economic, business, competitive or regulatory nature. These uncertainties may cause our actual future results to be materially different that those expressed in our forward-looking statements. We do not undertake to update our forward-looking statements.
