“We are pleased to note that, as in previous years, we continued to persistently increase our market share, which reached 9.9% in 2013, up from 9.4% in 2012.
2013 saw Russia enter the final and decisive phase of preparation for the XXII Winter Olympics in Sochi. Mostotrest has, in recent years, been involved in the construction of several major transport infrastructure projects in Sochi. The construction of the Kurortny Avenue Relief Road was one of the most challenging large-scale projects the Company has ever undertaken. We are proud that the road was opened for traffic in line with the target schedule.
Mostotrest won all major tenders in 2013. Additions to the backlog included: construction of the Volga Bridge in Nizhny Novgorod and the Voroshilovsky Bridge in Rostov-on-Don; additional construction work on the M-9 “Baltic“ Highway and a section of the Vladivostok-Nakhodka-Vostochny Port Highway, as well as construction of sections of the M-4 “Don“ Highway and M-11 “Moscow-St. Petersburg” Highway. As a result, our backlog has increased by 26% or more than RUB190 billion, ensuring the Company’s strong position for future operations.
The Company has strong competitive advantages which will enable Mostotrest to further strengthen its position across all market segments and successfully participate in tenders for priority government infrastructure projects.”
