Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2015 -- Most food & drink companies will suffer from an uncertain political and economic environment in the coming months in Russia. We are quite cautious about the outlook for private consumption in the country on the back of the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine over the former Soviet power's influence on its neighbour. The recent sanctions adopted by the US and EU will only exaggerate already harsh credit conditions, which will potentially limit consumer purchasing power further . As a result, we have lowered our growth forecast for real private consumption to 0.8 % in 2014 from 2.8% previously and to -5.0 % in 2015. This follows average growth of more than 6% between 2010 and 2013.

This trend has been further stocked by the restrictions imposed on food imports from the West since August. Discount store leader Magnit is flourishing in this environment and will continue to report strong same-store growth numbers over the coming months.

The discount leader's share price increased by nearly 30% in three months after Russia began banning food imports from Western countries in the second week of August 2014. Same-store sales grew at an average rate of nearly 13% over the first three quarters of 2014; in Q3 ended September 2014, the company had outstanding growth of 17.2% year-on-year (y-o-y).
