Magnit Ups Sales to $1.4Bln

Food retailer Magnit said Wednesday that its sales rose by 30 percent in June, year on year, to stand at 47.5 billion rubles ($1.4 billion), after a rise of 34.5 percent in May.

Magnit, which recently overtook rival X5 as the country's biggest grocery chain by revenue, said the June result brought sales for the first six months of the year to 273 billion rubles, an increase of 31.5 percent.

The company, also Russia's biggest food retailer by store count, opened 170 stores in June, bringing its total to 7,416.

Magnit has said it planned to grow revenue by between 27 and 29 percent in ruble terms this year, compared with about 34 percent last year, backed by a $1.8 billion capital spending program.

… 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.
