Commenting these results, the President of DIXY Group, Ilya Yakubson said:
The main priorities of the Company during the first half of 2009 were optimization of the logistics function and the rollout of the GOLD system at the level of operating companies in the Central Federal district. These undertakings were executed according to schedule within a larger framework of centralization of the Company’s business processes at the HQ level. Today, the main part of these undertakings is successfully completed. During the next months, there remains a rollout of the GOLD IT system in stores, offices and distribution centers operating in the Moscow region, in Yaroslavl, and in Chelyabinsk. At the same time, we continue to work on increasing the level of centralization of deliveries throughout the Company. All of these actions, coupled with the optimization of the assortment mix and a heavier engagement in marketing activities, are the necessary elements for achieving a reversal in sales growth trend, which we will demonstrate in the second half of 2009.
