DeloPorts CEO Igor Yakovenko commented on the reporting results:
“The Company’s financial indicators decreased due to a drop in grain transshipment, caused by the overall decrease in Russian grain export in 2019. The high prices in the domestic market and relatively low prices in the international market lead to the Russian agricultural producers lowering interest for the grain export, which had an impact on the Group’s results.
At the same time, DeloPorts completely fulfilled all its strategic development tasks in 2019: the Group's share in the transshipment of dry cargo in Novorossiysk increased from 17 to 20 percent, the investment program was successfully introduced and allowed us to increase the throughput capacity of NUTEP and KSK, so that container transshipment reached 13%”.
