Other things being equal, we give preference to active buyers who have purchased natural rough diamonds from ALROSA, especially during slow periods on the global diamond market. Buyers are assessed using our Methodology, a
strictly formalized algorithm agreed with the FAS of Russia.
The most important factors we look at in a company applying for a long-term agreement are:
- Sum cost of rough diamond purchases in total, with weighting given to purchases made in weak markets (in USD)
- The share of selected (purchased) natural rough diamonds in the total volume of rough diamonds offered for sale in the trading sessions, % by value
The company with the highest rank through this analysis is given priority to establish a long-term agreement with ALROSA.
