Stability of Mechel is greater than it seems
Alexey Lebedev, General Director of Mechel-Trans Management Company, told In an interview with EastRussia about how the company plans to overcome the financial crisis.
“It sounds pompous, but we, as true patriots of our company, are confident that a bright future will come. Such confidence is not based on sheer enthusiasm,” noted Aleksey Lebedev. “The vector of decisions made by the management of the group of companies is correct. We believe that the assets in which Mechel has invested over the past years will bring the group money in the near future. "
First of all, we have in mind the main investment projects: the rail-mill at the Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Combine; development of the Elginsky deposit, including the construction of a railroad to it; as well as the technical re-equipment of the commercial port of Posiet in Primorye.
“Yes, the situation is tense. However, the point is not even in relations with creditors, but in the general crisis - both in Russia and around the world. It is with creditors that we are conducting a rather constructive dialogue. And I think there is a very real opportunity to reach compromises. We are under pressure, but the company is working. As always and no matter what, ”he explains to EastRassia.
“Mechel does not abandon its goals, although, of course, we have to take into account the crisis in the economy. We have more resilience than it seems. Instead of pessimistic forecasts, it is better to look at things realistically and think strategically, ”stressed Mechel-Trans Management Company General Director.
