ROUGH DIAMOND SALES

Cycle 8 2017

US$370 million (PROVISIONAL)

Bruce Cleaver, CEO, De Beers Group, said: “De Beers offered fewer rough diamonds for sale in Cycle 8, reflecting the concurrent timing this year of the Sight sale with the closure of polishing factories in India and Israel for the observance of religious holidays. Sales were in line with expectations, at what is a seasonally slower time for rough diamond demand."

NOTES

Cycle 8 2017 provisional sales value represents sales as at 16 October 2017.

Cycle 7 2017 actual sales value is restated following the earlier publication of a provisional figure for the seventh sales cycle of 2017.

Sales values are quoted on a consolidated accounting basis and are before capitalisation of pre-commercial production revenues at Gahcho Kué. Auction Sales included in a given cycle are the sum of all sales between the end of the preceding cycle and the end of the noted cycle.
