Order intake grew by 33% to Rub 24.5 billion based on growth in all business segments. In terms of contracts type, both recurring business and large contracts contributed to this growth.

Backlog of HMS Group grew to Rub 43.4 billion by 35% compared with Rub 32.2 billion last year, driven by all business segments except construction.  In terms of contracts type, the growth was based on the recurring business and large integrated contracts also.

Revenue grew to Rub 23.4 billion, up by 15%, compared with Rub 20.3 billion for 6m 2018.  Compressors and pumps contributed to this growth. EBITDA was down by 41% yoy to Rub 1.9 billion mainly due to negative results of oil & gas equipment segment.  

Revenue from recurring business was up by 45% yoy.  Large projects' revenue decreased by 17% yoy.  EBITDA from recurring business declined 6% yoy and large projects contracted by 54% yoy.

EBITDA margin equaled 8.3%.

Depreciation & amortization was Rub 1.1 billion, up 28% yoy, compared with Rub 866 million for 6m 2018 due to acquired assets in 2018-2019.

Free cash flow decreased to Rub (1.9) billion from Rub (1.5) billion for 6m 2018 because of Rub 700 million acquisition made in Feb 2019.

ROCE decreased because of lower operating profit for the last twelve months and higher average capital employed.

Cost of sales was Rub 19.0 billion, up 29% yoy, compared with Rub 14.7 billion for 6m 2018, because, on the one hand, HMS portfolio consists of less profitable contracts than last year, and on the other hand, large contracts under execution have higher share of outsourced components in cost of sales (compressor contracts).  Materials and components (+48% yoy), required for manufacturing, almost fully attributed to this growth.
