Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev commented: “We are pleased to once again report positive yearend results. We have seen significant growth in the key indicators of revenue and EBITDA – 23% and 79% respectively, despite the slight decline in the number of helicopters delivered. Russian Helicopters achieved a record EBITDA margin of 27.7%. The changing rouble rate and a more diversified supply portfolio, half of which is export contracts denominated in foreign currency, helped achieve these results. However, even leaving these external economic factors aside, we anticipated growth.”
Alexander Mikheev said that, this year, Russian Helicopters will continue to focus on achieving its strategic goals, and under the priority goals set by State Corporation Rostec, will focus on improving operational efficiency in production, expanding both the range of models offered and our presence on the global market, and also on developing our network for the provision of high-quality after-sales service and maintenance.
Russian Helicopters will continue to strengthen its position as a leading global aerospace and defence enterprise, recognised for its high degree of efficiency and competitive production.
