"Russian home appliance and electronics market was showing some recovery in the second quarter of 2017 after the negative dynamics in the beginning of the year. Price deflation in the main product categories has finally resulted in the traffic growth only by summer. Loans and promo-offers remain the key drivers for big purchases, such as large household appliances, televisions, and smartphones. M.video, on the flat market in the first half of the year, managed to not only increase revenue, but also improve the profitability on the back of the growing share of high-margin services and accessories in the sales mix, and the implementation of innovative projects, for example, consumer credits. The strong business model supplemented by the continuous improvement of customer services, and the search for new, more efficient, work formats ensures the company’s steady growth even in a mature market," – commented M.video President, Alexander Tynkovan.
“A sound investment in IT combined with a constant search for new approaches to our sales and services allows M.video to keep the leadership and expand its presence even in the market that lacks active dynamics. For instance, in the partnership with the leading banks, we have launched a completely new “credit broker” program in the stores and on-line. M.Credit allowed us to improve substantially credit conditions for our clients, and double the number of our partner banks. We also see the great growth potential in services and accessories categories, as well as in on-line based sales which continue to grow at double-digit pace”, - M.video Chief Executive Officer, Enrique Fernandez, added.
