In H1 2019, the consolidated revenue of Avangardco IPL increased by 25% YoY to USD 84.8 mln. The increase was supported by a 92% YoY improvement in sales of shell eggs.
In H1 2019, the company’s export revenues increased by 57% YoY to USD 44.8 mln, driven by the increased export sales of shell eggs. The share of export revenue in the consolidated revenue reached the target of 53%.
The cost of sales rose 51% YoY to USD 105.8 mln due to the increase in the volume of shell egg sales.
