HMS Group Managing Director, Artem Molchanov, highlighted the year as transformational for the company and laying the basis for long term growth.
“2010 has been a transformational period for the Group with major corporate activity and the delivery of high growth across our businesses.
In 2010, the Company has transformed itself, so HMS Group is now well placed to provide the high-end technologies which our customers demand for the design and for the production of modern equipment and integrated solutions. It is for this reason that we were chosen by major Russian companies, including Transneft, Rosneft, TNK-BP, LUKOIL, Surgutneftegaz, Gazprom, Rosatom, Inter RAO UES, Power Machines and Mosvodokanal. We have made substantial investments into production technologies and testing facilities thus securing our strong market position for years to come.”
Molchanov also highlighted the early 2011 equity listing in London which has helped reduce debt and provide funding for expansion.
“Since the year end, we have raised funds in an initial public offering on the London Stock Exchange and paid down debt so that the Company is now in a good financial position and well placed to grow in a strong market for our products, as well as ready to explore further new M&A opportunities. The outlook for our core markets is promising and we see prospects for greater investments across the sector.”
