The analyst of the Finams Group Leonid Delitsyn explains that the company did that in the conditions of stagnation of the Internet advertising market, but the prospects for reducing the breakdown from Yandex are not visible. The revenue overtook our forecast by 1% – the revenue of 106 billion rubles was predicted in our note, but it turned out 107 billion rubles – but it is clear that this was not what could be counted on if the company had actually strengthened In the electronic commerce market. After all, there the growth rate reaches 30% per year, and market leaders double revenue, ”Leonid Delitsyn reports. According to him, the player of growth throughout the year was the game direction. Diversification of business, for which analysts praised the holding for many years, finally played a stabilizing role.

With growth drivers, the picture has become less clear, although it is obvious that the company is looking for and actively investing in new directions. But two but. But the strategy was clear – to build an ecosystem around e -commerce. Probably with partners, the composition of which could be possible Therefore, the words of the report on the construction of the ecosystem, in the center of which will be VK – which increased the revenue by 14%, pay attention to the words. Previously, the company's general director spoke about the construction strategy of ecosystems ecosystems, in the nucleus of which there will be e -commerce – these words are still these words There is on the site in the Strategy section. Changing accents may be significant, especially due to the fact that new areas, such as mobili, foodteh, etc., are not reflected in the report, since they are implemented in the form of joint projects.However, if they were reflected now, they would still reduce profits – since they should be unprofitable – but the question is whether they can be reflected in the future in case of success. And do the holding partners take into the future, built on the basis of e -commerce? Or new directions will remain independent companies, and the holding will be a major shareholder in them? – thinks Leonid Delitsyn.

According to the analyst, all this makes it difficult to understand what the holding is now and what is its strategy. And during the Pandemia, the stock market appreciates clear prospects than current indicators. For example, Salesfoce (CRM) indicators significantly overtook analysts, but the company reduced forecasts for 2022, and its shares have subched to 4%. Group shares. Today, they also lost 2%, and this is already very inexpensive compared to analogues. Obviously, the stock market also wants to see growth drivers and only attempts of third -party analysts to find them not enough for players. It is necessary that management draws clear prospects Future, ”says Leonid Delitsyn.

Analyst of the Department of Trade operations in the Russian Fride Finance Fride Market Alexander Osin notes that in 2020, the company's revenue according to IFRS standards increased by 4.5% to 100.5 billion rubles. At the same time, the net loss amounted to 21.2 billion rubles. Against 18.9 billion rubles. Pure profit according to the results of 2019. In the IV quarter, there was a tendency to restore the key, with a share of 48% in revenue, for the business of the company Social Networks and Communication Services . Its revenue in October-November increased by 9.6% of the year to year, up to 16.2 billion rubles, while in the III quarter the growth was 1.5%. The positive dynamics of the company's revenue in the IV quarter was significantly determined by the statistics of the MMO-IGR segment, where the growth of 23.1% of the year to A year, up to 9.8 billion rubles. Other revenue in the IV quarter of 2020 increased by 121.7% a year by the year and amounted to 5.4 billion rubles, ”says Alexander Osin.

According to him, the company's loss is in a decisive extent – according to the results of the first three quarters by 80% – this is a one -time revaluation with a decrease in the balance value of associated companies and joint ventures, which is partially compensated by the profit from financial investments. Given the long -term statistics of the company, we believe that in the context of restoring the economy and financial markets – as part of the base scenario for 2021, the company, as in periods of recovery cycles of 2009-2012 and 2016-2017, will demonstrate in 2021 . Positive statistics of profit from shared participation in dependent companies.
