With combined resources, opportunities and potentials, we created a strong company renowned both nationally and abroad. In the last five years, we have added over 720 new telephone lines, increased our mobile subscriber base more than 10 times to exceed five million. One of the most prominent results is probably the growth of market capitalization, which has now exceeded US$ 2 billion.
In terms of 2007 results, the company has fulfilled all the objectives assigned to us by the shareholders. In particular, the introduction of tariffs in local services was one of the most important reforms of the year. Sustained growth in broadband was another major business objective. In 2007, we increased our subscriber numbers 2.5 times and reached 295,000 mark, while our market share of data transmission services exceeded 55%.
We also continued to prioritize on mobile business, which has been the company’s main growth driver together with broadband services for the last few years. In general, our mobile business proved its high efficiency in a competitive environment. In 2007, revenue generation in mobile services and new services increased by 22% and 49% on 2006, respectively. Thus, unregulated services now deliver 42% of the company’s overall sales”.
The first session of newly elected Board of Directors has nominated Evgeny Chechelnitsky, Deputy General Director of OAO ‘Svyazinvest’, the Board’s Chairman.
