Fourth quarter 2018 highlights:

Chicken: Sales volume growth in 4Q18 was supported by the consolidation of Altai Broiler results, which added 5 thousand tonnes in December. Average sales price increased by 32% y-o-y and 13% q-o-q on the back of better sales mix with more products under Petelinka and Chicken Kingdom brand, as well as the further shift to the deboned and high value-added products, as well as supply cuts by other chicken producers.

Turkey: JV Tambov Turkey sales volume of 9.6 thousand tonnes remained unchanged compared to 4Q17 and was up 3% compared to the previous quarter. Average sales price improved by 46% y-o-y and 21% q-o-q due to the ongoing expansion of Pava-Pava branded offering and supported by supply dislocations on the market.

Pork: Production and sales volume were higher, compared to both 4Q17 results and the previous quarter as we ramped up output at newly built facilities. Prices gained 19% compared to 4Q18, but declined 9% compared to the previous quarter, on seasonally rising supply and in anticipation of the Brazilian pork imports ban lift.

Meat Processing: Sales volume remained in line with 4Q17 and previous quarter, with cuts declining further, offset by growth of carcass. In sausages category, a shift towards dry, semi-smoked sausages and hams in the sales mix contributed to a higher average sales price.

Grain (2018 results): Sales volume of 696 thousand tonnes was up 54% mainly due to the sales of grains inventory accumulated from 2017 harvest. The total harvest of 2018 amounted to 480 thousand tonnes, down 24% compared to 2017, as we scaled down corn and wheat acreage. The average sales price was driven by higher amounts of wheat and sunflower, as well as average market prices for wheat and corn rising by 56% and 17% respectively.
