Dixy Sales Up

Food retailer Dixy said Thursday that its consolidated revenues in the first 11 months of 2012 rose 47.4 percent year on year to 130.1 billion rubles ($4.2 billion).

The figure was a slowdown from the 50.2 percent recorded for the first 10 months of the year.

Sales have been helped by its merger with smaller rival Victoria in mid-2011. Revenues were up 21.1 percent on a pro-forma basis, including Victoria results from the beginning of 2011, Dixy said in a statement.

Dixy, Russia's third-biggest homegrown food retailer, said earlier it expects pro-forma sales to grow by 20 to 25 percent in ruble terms this year, as it plans to open about 350 new stores. (Reuters)

… 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.
