Trigon Agri’s Founder and Chairman of the Board, Joakim Helenius, Comments:
Trigon Agri has continued to show good progress in its results in Q3, despite the low international and regional soft commodity prices, as a result of a good overall harvest and the successful implementation of our cost cutting program.
The political and military situation in Ukraine, and by extension in Russia, remains unclear and the likelihood that the current uncertainty will continue is high. Whilst we have not experienced any physical disruptions to our activities we are inevitably impacted by the indirect effects of the sanctions. Most specifically this has made it harder for us to dispose of our Russian non-core assets. Although international demand for Russian farming assets has evaporated, interest from potential Russian investors for prime agricultural assets is still to be found. We remain in active discussions on the disposal of our Russian assets with Russian potential buyers.
We are actively involved in constructive discussions with our bondholders who are supportive of our strategy and understanding of the circumstances currently prevailing in our regions of operations. We hope to finalise these discussions in the relatively near future whereupon we will make the relevant announcements.
Our medium-term aim remains to use the proceeds of divestments to pay off the outstanding debt and focus our operations on their profitable core in Ukraine.
