Mark Kurtser, CEO at MDMG, said:

“In 2022, the Group delivered solid operating and financial performance, adapting to the new business environment, with revenue flat year-on-year despite the last year’s strong base.
“We continue to capitalise on our diversification strategy in terms of pricing, service range and geography. In 2022, we strengthened our market position in Moscow and the Moscow Region by opening two new medical centres with a focus on antenatal care in Butovo and Mytishchi. The Group continues to diversify its geographical footprint: during the year, we launched two clinical hospitals in St Petersburg and Tyumen, and also tapped into the Sverdlovsk Region, where we plan to expand our operations going forward.

“During the reporting period, we saw an increase in demand in segments not related to women’s and children’s healthcare, including traumatology, cardiology and oncology. As an example, in just two years after launch, our Lapino-2 surgical unit with a focus on oncology generated as much as RUB 2,182 million in revenue and achieved a 50% utilisation rate while maintaining potential for further growth. Based on expected demand and expertise we have built in oncology, we will continue to expand the Lapino medical cluster in 2023 and are now commencing the construction of a 11,700 sq m Lapino-3 nuclear medical centre, which will support a full cycle of medical care in oncology.

“Throughout the Group's history, we have been focusing on providing high-quality and efficient medical services to our patients while safeguarding the interests of our shareholders. To this end, we have been paying steady dividends. Despite the persistent external headwinds, we distributed more than 50% of our net profit in dividends for H1 2022.

“In conclusion, I would like to thank the entire MD Medical Group team for their contribution to our results and the Group's ability to provide top-notch medical care and deliver stable performance."
