Anatoly Ufimkin, CEO commented the results of nine months: ‘It is the first time when our Company reports its financial results under Russian Accounting Standards (RAS) which include figures of the consolidated mobile and Internet subsidiaries. This made reporting under RAS more adequate to real results of the Companys activity; it increased efficiency of data presentation on mobile and Internet business development. The logical end for the subsidiary consolidation is introduction of a united trademark for mobile and value-added services — Utel presented by our Company in August. Generally, we are satisfied by the development dynamics of the current year driven traditionally by mobile and value-added services. To the end of the year the Company aims to liven up its efforts in value-added services segment, particularly, to widely promote ADSL-access for private users’.
