Andrey Kostin emphasized that “the last year performance proves the efficiency of the ongoing strategy of sustainable growth and enhanced business structure, which has been gradually promoting the Group’s market capitalization and its financial stability. As a result, our net profit in 2010, under IFRS, has hit a record of RUB 54.8 bln. Net commission income has doubled, while the operating costs have decreased. Our assets and capital efficiency have grown due to consolidation of TransCreditBank. In 2011, we are also expecting the Group’s net profit to reach no less than RUB 80 bln.”
The results of voting under the AGM agenda will be published within the time frames set by the legislation.
