Group`s results for 9 months of 2016 were defined by continued challenges in economies of its major sales markets – Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. Previously undermined by devaluations and high inflation rates purchasing power in region`s countries remains low, future expectations are still more on a negative or neutral side, therefore it is hard to see some kind of relatively fast recovery in growth rates of economies under discussion.

Russian statistics are somewhat improving compared to 2015, inflation rate is currently 6.9% in y-o-y basis and 3.9% from the beginning of the year. GDP declined by 0.7% during 8 months of 2016. Russian economy is starting to adapt to new reality, but purchasing power of population in real terms is still falling and in August decreased by 1,1%.  Retail sales in Russian market has been stable in last months and decreased in August only by 0.1% compared last year. Group`s sales on Russian market totalled 25 170 thousand EUR, decline is 7.1% compared to 9 months of 2015. In local currency sales grew by 7.1% during 9 months. Group`s Russian subsidiary opened 12 more stores in Q3 of 2016, 2 more stores were opened in October 2016. The Group will continue opening own stores.

Belarusian economy at the moment isn`t demonstrating signs of stabilisation yet, GDP decreased by 3.1% in Q1 and 1.4% in Q2 2016 y-o-y basis. Annual average inflation rate is 12% and in September was reported 11.1%, slowing down a bit from August`s 11.8%. During 7 months 2016, real household income fell by 7% y-o-y basis. International financial institutions predict that in 2016 Belarusian GDP will fall by around 2%, inflation rate will be 11.5-12.5%. Retail turnover in comparable prices in Belorussia declined during 9 months by 3.1%. Major factors behind this are believed to be unreformed economy, particularly public sector and state-controlled entities, impact of recession in main trading partner – Russia, continued pressure on Belarusian rouble, low demand for consumption, high level of debts in economy. Group`s sales in Belarus in 9 months of 2016 were 13 885 thousand EUR and diminishing by 18.3% compared to 9 months of 2015. Sales in local currency increased by 7.5% at the same period. In Belarus the Group will focus on improving profitability of its retail business and will also continue to expand our store chain there depending on availability of reasonably priced selling areas.

Ukraine economy is expected to return to positive growth in 2016, supported by improving consumer and investor confidence, gradually rising real incomes easing of credit conditions, however the recovery is expected to be slow and fragile. Group`s sales in Ukraine in 9 months of 2016 reached the level of 1332 thousand EUR, which is 3.7% less than previous year. Sales in local currency increased by 14.3% during same period.
