However, the factors affecting the company's activities negatively, such as the war, rising prices of energy resources, inflation, and recession in Europe, have remained.
According to AB SNAIGĖ CEO, Mindaugas Sologubas, the company is currently continuing to operate, producing refrigerators, developing its new line of industrial refrigeration products and has no intention of stopping yet. "We are trying to get out of this unfavourable situation for the company on our own," says M. Sologubas. "The biggest internal obstacle to our activity is the lack of working capital. We have many more orders than we can produce. We cannot borrow; for the time being, we pay for raw materials in advance, which negatively affects the company's result".
In the third quarter, AB SNAIGĖ implemented an impressive and honourable order. Refrigerators of the Retro line in various colours produced by the company will be sold in Lidl stores in Germany.

A change in the shareholder's country of origin alone would solve many problems that M. Sologubas believes the company is undeservedly facing.
