Magnit Sales Rise Slowly

Fast-growing food retailer Magnit reported a 37.5 percent year-on-year increase in February sales compared with a rise of 32.4 percent in January.

Net sales totaled 33.3 billion rubles ($1.1 billion), Magnit said in a statement, adding that it increased selling space by 35.7 percent year on year. Magnit expects sales to rise 25 percent to 30 percent in ruble terms this year, a slowdown from a 42 percent growth rate in 2011.


… 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.
