07 июля 2017 Земельный банк Кернела превысил 600 тыс. га

С поглощением «Украинских Аграрных Инвестиций» (УАИ) и «Агро Инвест Украина» Кернел завершил реализацию стратегии по увеличению земельного банка, о которой сообщалось в прошлом году. В июне компания стала собственником холдинга УАИ, который управляет более чем 190 тыс. га земли и мощностями единовременного хранения на 200 тыс. тон, а в начале июля в состав Кернел вошли активы «Агро Инвест Украина»: элеваторные мощности на более чем 170 тыс. тон и более 27.5 тыс. га земли.

 

«Покупка этих активов завершает реализацию нашей стратегии по увеличению земельного банка», - прокомментировал Евгений Осипов, Директор Агробизнеса Кернел. «УАИ управляет одним из крупнейших и высококачественных земельных банков страны, который находится в близости к регионам нашего текущего присутствия. Что касается покупки «Агро Инвест Украина», то основной интерес для нас – первоклассные мощности по хранению зерна, которые обеспечат оптимальную работу логистики Агробизнеса Кернел в регионах недавнего расширения нашего земельного банка. Мы приобрели современные элеваторы мощностью 170 тыс. тон, сэкономив тем самым два года, необходимые для строительства аналогичной инфраструктуры с нуля. Сейчас мы сфокусируемся на интеграции приобретенных активов в нашу бизнес-модель для приведения их операционной эффективности и уровня продуктивности в соответствие с высокими стандартами работы Кернел», - добавил Осипов.
