“We’ve never hidden our strategic interest in the market in the capital, and that Varus will be in Kyiv – it’s only an issue of time. At present, work on financing the project is being done, a concept for a high-quality remote management system is being drawn up, operation and commercial business processes are being optimized and locations are being actively analyzed. According to our optimistic forecasts, the launch of the chain in Kyiv will be possible in the second half of 2013,” Bril said.
He said that the development strategy of the Varus chain foresees continual expansion in the regions in which it is already present, and into new regions.
“At present, the company is mulling several proposals, and their financial attractiveness is being assessed. Next year we’re planning to realize our ambitious development plans in full, with the expansion of [the chain’s] coverage by at least two regions,” he said.
