Against the general downtrend Enterprise Group Company UNAKO completed 2014 stably, creating a platform for future development.
- We have a certain margin of safety, because UNAKO is a big industrial group of two dozen companies – as Supervisory Board Chairman Andrey Ryzhikov has rated the past period. - Through our interaction volume of total revenues for the Group increased in 2014 by 15% despite the fact that in general, energy and mechanical engineering are dependent on government orders. In addition, in 2014, we have confirmed the reputation of honest borrowers in our banks, although the situation, I admit, was extremely difficult.
The list of important events in 2014 includes a demonstration of the possibilities of the Group in addressing the issue of import nationwide.
