Alexander Popov, the Chair of Acron’s Board of Directors commented on the Group’s performance:
“Dorogobuzh was able to sustain its financial results at the level of Q1 2008. Stable demand for its key products (mineral fertilisers) enabled the company to generate sufficient cash flow and partially offset lower prices. Last year we completed in-depth revamping of the ammonia unit, which boosted its capacity and efficiency and had a positive impact on Dorogobuzh’s operating performance.”
