Commenting on the 2Q and 1H 2017 operating results, Etalon Group President and CEO Viacheslav Zarenkov said:

 

"I am pleased with the results that Etalon Group delivered in the first half of 2017. Our year-on-year sales performance in 1H 2017 was supported by a very strong second quarter, which helped bring the half-year results on par with the record-setting numbers we saw in the first half of 2016. Based on the month-on-month sales dynamics Etalon Group delivered in April-June 2017, I can confirm we are on a positive course towards achieving our full-year guidance.

 

"With transfers to customers up 48% year-on-year to 191 ths sqm in 1H 2017, we have a solid base for revenue recognition during the period, which should have a positive effect on our year-on-year financial performance and dividends for the period.

 

"Average down payment increased to 79% for 2Q 2017, helped by a significant increase in mortgage-financed sales, which reached 33% during the quarter. The growing share of mortgages is an early sign of demand from new customers, for whom mortgage lending has become accessible as a result of falling borrowing rates in Russia, which are now at record low levels.

 

"The launch of new projects in Moscow and St Petersburg supported strong quarter-on-quarter growth for 2Q 2017, and we expect a further acceleration in sales, with the majority of our 2017 launches due to take place in the second half of the year, including  Silver Fountain, our first business-class project in Moscow."
