In 2014 the revenue of group of companies Gars Telecom increased by 17,45% and amounted to 1341,8 million roubles.
During the last 5+ years Gars Telecom has invested intensively into the equipment modernization and improving the reliability of the provision of services. The results are already in the income of the 2014. The structure of the revenue – which only some time ago consisted primarily of revenues from provision of telephony, Internet and intellectual-intensive services – was supplemented by two new blocks.
Thus, in the structure of voice services the income from provision of high-quality VoIP services is increasingly significant. The share of this block in the income from voice services in the reporting period amounted to 29,6% or 140,8 million roubles. All in all the voice services – fixed, mobile and IP-telephony – brought the company 476,4 million roubles or 35,5% of all the revenue from the last year.
The second new block is composed by revenues from providing telematics services – for both inter-operators purposes and interests of end customers. By the end of 2014 the operator Gars Telecom earned in this sector 331,8 million roubles or 24,7% of revenue. The aggressive growth of the dimension has become possible thanks to the long-term investments in the network and equipment, which led to the empowerment and the attainment of the status of the last-mile carrier #1 in Moscow.
The income from the provision of Internet access amounted to 487,0 million roubles (36,3% of the revenue) by the end of the 2014; 46,5 million roubles brought integration and other services.
Within the ranking of “Expert RA” Gars Telecom is #5 in provision of telecommunications services. Also the operator is in the TOP 5 among the most strategic Russian telecommunication companies according to the Institute of Economic Strategies of the RAS. And the corporate B2B edition gained gold in the international competition The Spotlight Awards 2014 in the category “Print: Magazine/Newsletter”.
In the reporting period we saved the dynamics of connection to service network new real estate objects, growing the space bank up to almost 9 million square meters, - says the Development director of Gars Telecom Evgeniy Oleynik. – And since the end of 2014 revived the migration of tenants. Gars Telecom clients as always are more fortunate than anybody else, because dozens of offers on special conditions from partner landlords are available for them, as well as support of the operator in moving the customers’ telecommunications. In fact, in 2015 we are planning to increase the share of presence in business-centres.
According to CEO of Gars Telecom Pavel Gorenkov, the strategies of our major competitors in the B2B segment are redirected to the sales of the simcards, which added the uniqueness to us as a fixed-line operator for large and medium-size business and helped to achieve easily the targets set by the shareholders. On the other hand, already since the mid 2014 the macroeconomic problems of the country began to influence on the telecommunications market. So the success of the 2015 largely depends on how finely we configured the business processes.
