Magnit continues Q1 expansion despite LFL decline



Russian retailer Magnit has recorded a sales increase of 8.08% to RUB 288.56 billion in its unaudited results for the first quarter of 2018, although like-for-like numbers show declines. During the period, the retailer expanded its network by adding 275 stores, reaching a total of 16,625 stores, while its selling space increased 13.24% to 5.83 million square metres. It now operates 12,283 convenience stores, 242 hypermarkets, 210 ’Magnit Family’ outlets and 3,890 drogerie stores.

Sales performed strongly at its drogerie stores (+13.10%), Magnit Family (+6.04%) and its convenience stores (+6.04%), while declining slightly at its hypermarkets (-2.70%). Meanwhile, Magnit’s wholesale sales grew by 50.69% to RUB3.63 million. However, like-for-like figures saw decreases on almost all fronts, with the average basket size down marginally (0.01%), traffic down 3.64% and sales down 3.65%. The retailer’s drogerie format was the only one to experience like-for-like growth, with a 4.53% increase of average basket size and a 0.1% sales increase, albeit with a 4.24% decrease in traffic. Gross profit increased 3% to RUB71.90 billion, while gross margin was 24.92%. The retailer’s EBITDA was down 2.36% to RUB20.50 billion, while its EBITDA margin was 7.10%. Net income during the period was also down 1.83% to RUB7.41 billion, while its net income margin was 2.57%.

Last February, Magnit’s CEO Sergey Galitskiy confirmed that he intended to step down as director general of the business and as a member of its board of directors. He sold 29.1% of his shares in the company to a subsidiary of VTB Bank in a deal valued at RUB 138 billion (euro1.95 billion). (esmmagazine.com)
