Despite external challenges, the Company has shown good financial results. The main event of the past year was the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Company took a number of measures aimed at ensuring the safety of not only its employees, but also all residents of the regions where it operates. Extensive programs of assistance to medical institutions were promptly deployed, and employee salaries were indexed twice.

The Company's efforts were largely aimed at optimizing costs, which ensured an increase in EBITDA margin to 38.5% from 36.1% a year earlier. Separately, it is worth noting the contribution of the fourth quarter to the results of the year - EBITDA amounted to $ 838 million, which became the best quarterly indicator of the Company over the past 8 years. We expect the favorable market conditions to continue into early 2021. Considerable work has been done in terms of reducing the debt burden, optimizing the parameters of the Company's loan portfolio and expanding sources of liquidity. Thus, in 2020, about $ 260 million was spent on debt repayment, several refinancing transactions were completed, including through successful public borrowings in the local market at record low rates, and new credit lines were opened. As a result, the total debt of the Company decreased by 9.5% to $ 3.7 billion, and the maturities in 2021–2022. are 0.5 billion dollars, which is fully secured by the available volume of liquidity. The Net debt /EBITDA indicator at the end of 2020 was 1.3x, which is a comfortable level for the implementation of the investment program in full. ”
