"The second quarter and the first half of the year were not easy, but we are pleased to note that revenue continued to grow and exceeded 6.2 billion rubles. Gross profit increased compared to the same period last year. I can't help but note the positive result - 158 million net profit in the reporting period. Unfortunately, it is lower than the result of last year," - says Alexander Mikhailov, President of FES-Agro LLC.
"The crisis in which the whole world found itself has also affected our Company. I want to mention the following reasons. First of all, there was an increase in prices from our suppliers because of the stronger dollar. The highly competitive environment did not allow the Company to increase price proportionally to end-users. The change in price and the need to save money reoriented our customers towards lower-price products, which was the main factor in reducing the margin.
Against the background of the situation with the coronavirus, our expenses have also increased. Due to the pandemic, we had difficulties with the delivery, increased transportation tariffs, and unforeseen fees for providing necessary working conditions. In several regions, unstable weather conditions are observed. It leads to a decrease in the yield. It already forces farmers to save heavily on everything, including plant protection products.
Despite all the difficulties, we managed to maintain our team, good financial stability, and we are ready to withstand possible further market changes."
We also inform you that we will fulfill all obligations to our investors on time. On July 16, 2020, the first repayment of part of the exchange-traded bonds' nominal value took place. The next payment of coupon income to the holders of FES-Agro bonds. The following bonds will take place on October 15, 2020.
