PIK Expects Rise In 2012 Revenue

PIK Group, one of Russia's largest homebuilders, expects revenue to rise 19 percent to 29 percent this year, as the market continues to recover.

"Q4 sales figures showed a 30 percent year-on-year increase, reinforcing management's confidence that growth in PIK's segment of the market is intact and based upon solid and sustainable fundamentals," PIK said Monday.

PIK, which specializes in the construction of affordable housing, said it sees total gross cash collections at 62 billion rubles to 67 billion rubles ($1.98 billion to $2.14 billion) this year, up from 52.1 billion rubles in 2011.

Revenue from apartment sales rose 49.5 percent in the whole of 2011 to 35 billion rubles and by 40.2 percent in the fourth quarter alone.

Last year, it sold homes totaling 510,000 square meters, slightly below a 520,000 target.

The company also said it expects new sales to total 600,000 to 650,000 square meters this year.

PIK is 38 percent owned by billionaire Suleiman Kerimov, who also controls the potash miner Uralkali and funds the Russian Premier League football club Anzhi Makhachkala.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
