Transformation

THE COMPANY SUCCESSFULLY UNDERWENT THE TRANSFORMATION

The Group historically focused on the products’ volume expansion and aimed to become the “Number One Producer” in Zaporizhia region by market share. However, despite the growing revenue and the leading regional position, the Group demonstrated the dropping EBITDA, mainly due to the external factors: inflation, devaluation of Hryvnia and rise in the grain prices, which together increased the costs for population, as well as dropping of the disposal income of Ukrainians, which, n turn, included us to cut down the bread prices. In 2917 the shareholders launches the Transformation project to make the Group more flexible and adaptive to the external challenges. Another aim was to change the strategic and management approaches to improve the effectiveness.
