MDMG CEO Mark Kurtser said:

“We are thrilled by the remarkable revenue and operational performance achieved in the reporting quarter, fuelled by the resurgence of robust purchasing power, reproductive behaviour, and patient demand. Our revenue added over 20% y-o-y in Q4 2023 and 10% y-o-y in 12M 2023.

Women's and children's health services demonstrated consistently strong revenue growth. In 2023, the number of deliveries surged by 15% y-o-y, nearly reaching the milestone of 10,000, with a growth rate of 26% seen in Q4. These results were primarily driven by our Moscow hospitals, which enjoyed a capacity utilisation rate of over 70%.

The number of IVF cycles expanded by 18% and 15% in Q4 2023 and 12M 2023 respectively. I am delighted to acknowledge the remarkable IVF performance of our regional facilities, including a major contribution to the increase in deliveries by our recently launched hospital in St Petersburg and the impressive IVF results of regional clinics.

The patients’ care for their health is a driving force behind the growth in our out-patient treatments both in Moscow and other regions. Their total number across the Group increased by 19% and 11% in Q4 2023 and 12M 2023 respectively.

The opening of a new large hospital in Moscow’s Michurinsky Avenue in November 2023 and the launch of the new MD Group Zilart multifunctional family clinic in early 2024 is set to contribute to the Company’s growth and advancement in 2024. Our plans to further expand operations in Moscow and other regions are supported by a net cash year-end position of RUB 9 billion.

We are nearing the completion of the Company's redomiciliation to Russia and anticipate finalising it early in Q2 2024. This will enable us to resume dividend payments in line with the new dividend policy, which provides for dividends of up to 100% of the Company's net profit, including accrued profit from previous reporting periods.

I am grateful to our patients – for entrusting us with their health, to our shareholders and investors – for their strong support of our investment case, and to our management and medical staff – for their great teamwork and dedication. The accomplishments of MD Medical Group are the result of our shared commitment.”
