Depreciation expenses according to the MSBU 17 standard ('IAS 17') were cut down to 7,047 million rubles in 2019 from 7,862 million rubles in 2018 in connection with single non-monetary write-offs of assets and charge of additional depreciation at asset revaluation of Eldorado in 2018. Without this charge, depreciation expenses according to the MSBU 17 standard ('IAS 17') increased up to 7,047 million rubles in 2019 from 5,833 million rubles in 2018 and as percent from revenue increased by 0.3 items year-on-year to 1.9% in 2019.

For 2019 the total debt of Group was reduced by 17.0%, and the coefficient made a total debt / EBITDA 1.8x as of December 31, 2019, having shown decrease from mark 2.6x for December 31, 2018. The ratio a net debt of EBITDA for December 31, 2019 remains at the comfortable level 1.7x.
According to "M. of Video Eldorado", implementation of the IFRS 16 standard ('IFRS 16') which became effective since January 1, 2019 had an impact on an indicator of EBITDA, operating profit and the net profit of Group.
So, the indicator of EBITDA of Group is much higher according to the IFRS 16 standard ('IFRS 16') as the main part of the expenses on lease which are earlier recognized as a part of business, general running and administrative expenses is recognized according to "IFRS 16" ('IFRS 16') as debt on balance of the company and also in expenses on percent on the credits in the profit and loss statement.
Rent expenses and utilities were lower according to the IFRS 16 standard ('IFRS 16') for 17,190 million rubles, and expenses on maintenance and other operating expenses before depreciation – are 2,681 million rubles lower in 2019.
Thus, EBITDA of Group on "IFRS 16" ('IFRS 16') grew to 46,617 million rubles in comparison with 26,746 million rubles according to the MSBU 17 standard ('IAS 17') in 2019. Profitability on EBITDA according to "IFRS 16" ('IFRS 16') made 12.8% or that is 5.5 items higher in comparison with profitability on EBITDA equal than 7.3% on MSBU 17 ('IAS 17') in 2019.
Additional expenses in the amount of 15,456 million rubles of depreciation of leasing assets according to the IFRS 16 standard ('IFRS 16') had an impact on the net profit of Group in 2019.
Influence of these additional depreciation expenses was completely compensated by a deduction of expenses on long-term lease from structure of operating expenses as it was mentioned above.
Thus, the net positive effect from operating expenses on net profit according to "IFRS 16" ('IFRS 16') was 4,414 million rubles in 2019. At the same time finance costs increased by 7,214 million rubles according to "IFRS 16" ('IFRS 16') at the expense of additional interest expenses according to leasing obligations in 2019. Implementation of the IFRS 16 standard ('IFRS 16') also led to expense reduction on income tax because of decrease in profit to taxation in 2019.
As a result the corrected net profit of Group on the standard according to "IFRS 16" ('IFRS 16') reached 9,089 million rubles in comparison with 11,178 million rubles of the corrected net profit on MSBU 17 ('IAS 17') in 2019. The corrected net margin according to "IFRS 16" ('IFRS 16') made 2.5% in comparison with 3.1% according to the MSBU 17 standard ('IAS 17') in 2019.
Implementation of the IFRS 16 standard ('IFRS 16') has no impact on pure change of money in the cash flow statement. However the IFRS 16 standard ('IFRS 16') influences submission of the cash flow statement as principal payments are classified by lease as financial activities, prepayment – as investment activities, and interest payments – as the interests paid in operating activities.

Project startup on permanent collecting and utilization of the old equipment in Moscow and the Moscow region
On September 26, 2019 the M.Video — Eldorado Group reported that together with SKO Electronics Utilization Association and JSC Corporation Ecopolice started the project on permanent collecting and utilization of home appliances and electronics.
More than 200 retail stores "M.Video", Eldorado and also digital salons m_mobile in Moscow and the Moscow region already began to take the equipment for recycling. Consumers can free of charge and in any time, convenient for themselves to hand over any unnecessary devices: from the refrigerator and the washer to the smartphone, the iron or the TV. For this purpose it is enough to address on a service zone of shop and to sign consent to utilization. The service of export of major appliances with the subsequent utilization on delivery of again purchased goods is also available to clients. In the future export on utilization can be ordered as separate service. Brought together in Moscow within the project of the technician will go to a hi-tech complex on deep processing of electronic waste under control of EKOPOLIS Corporation. In the medium term project participants are aimed at collecting and processing about 4,000 tons of electronic garbage in Moscow and area annually.
The M of Video Eldorado group and SKO-utilization Association already started the pilot program of permanent utilization of the equipment in St. Petersburg, in only two complete months it was succeeded to collect more than 2,000 pieces of equipment. Until the end of the year, in addition to Moscow and the Moscow region, the project will earn in five cities: Kazan, Novokuznetsk, Samara, Yaroslavl, Ulyanovsk. Within two years partners expect to start acceptance of the equipment on utilization in all 220 cities of Group.
All assembled equipment is considered in the IT system of the retailer and transferred to association which is engaged in selection and accreditation of the plants utilizers and also control at a transportation stage from shop to the plant of the utilizer and the subsequent utilization. The economic and legal model of interaction of partners was developed by Deloitte company.
| ||For the first time in Russia we start permanent process of collecting of the old equipment within which we can precisely guarantee that each handed-over device will be effectively utilized without harm to an ecosystem of the city. Hand over the equipment there where you purchased it, very logically, and the developed infrastructure of M.Video and Eldorado, our IT solutions will allow to implement this project in the majority of the cities. More and more people pays attention to how the goods and services consumed by them influence the planet, and it is possible to assume that eventually responsible consumption will become not a fashionable trend, but the standard, regulation, and secondary processing – actively growing economy segment which is closely connected with retail retail|
speaks the president of the M of Video Eldorado Group Tynkovan Alexander
The overworking EKOPOLIS Corporations complex consists of three plants which form a full stroke of ecological utilization with efficiency of processing to 95% of the entering volume of electronic waste. Originally the equipment gets on the Ekotekhprom plant where understands on components and is sorted. At the enterprise the unique line of processing of refrigerating appliances equipped with the automatic hermetic system of a closed loop for removal of freon excluding its hit in the atmosphere functions. The line of utilization of monitors and TVs with the cathode ray tube allows to perform neutralization of flasks and to eco-friendly collect a phosphor in sealed containers for the subsequent processing at the enterprises utilizing mercury-containing materials. The case plastics sorted and crushed at the Ekotekhprom plant is transferred for the subsequent ecoprocessing to the Ekoplast plant, and printed circuit boards and non-ferrous metals – to the Aurus plant. Products of a full range of ecological processing of three plants are high-quality secondary plastic granules of ABS, PS, PP, the copper cathode, scrap of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
| ||In an issue of utilization of electronic waste quality control and depths of processing is extremely important. For September, 2019 in Russia more than 3000 licenses for processing of electronic waste are granted, at the same time the quality of work of the companies utilizers actually is not checked. It leads to the fact that unfair processors take from the equipment only the most valuable components, and all the rest is burned, buried or dumped, doing essential harm to city ecology. Also the issue of the centralized collecting of waste of electronics at the population is not handled. People do not know where to hand over the collected electronic garbage that it was ecologically processed. Production capacities of a complex of the plants "EKOPOLIS Corporations" will allow to close the complete amount of processing of electronic waste on the city of Moscow, and in the long term – and the Moscow region. In Russia there are no similar complex enterprises for processing of electronic waste, and we will do everything possible for fight against electronic garbage. Cooperation with the M of Video Eldorado Group in a question of creation of a complete chain of second-hand utilization of the electronic equipment from a stage of its collecting at the population before deep processing at our plants – the first big step to it. It is sure that this project will become a leader on the way of creation of a system of ecological utilization of an electronic equipment in Russia,|
notes the chairman of the board of directors of JSC Corporation EKOPOLIS Vladislav Vladimirovich Sviblov
All equipment assembled in shops by the piece is considered before sending for processing. The utilizer, having received a batch, weighs it and also enters data in the general IT system. Retailers, SKO Electronics Utilization Association and the enterprises for utilization are connected to it that allows to trace a way of each goods. Experts of Association check all cycle of processing for compliance to the Russian and international environmental standards. In addition to the EKOPOLIS Corporations complex the association already cooperates with 10 utilizers in different regions of Russia. These companies underwent input audit according to high to requirements of Association and quarterly confirm accreditation.
Expenses on collecting of the equipment — personnel training, document creation, storage in shops — are undertaken by the M of Video Eldorado Group. Transportation of the equipment to the enterprises utilizers is paid by association.
| ||This large-scale project is a response of responsible business to a request of society and the state regarding formation of economy of a closed loop and increase in level of environmental friendliness in general. The important stimulating factor of this work was an opportunity independent implementation of the expanded responsibility of producers and importers for the fate of the goods which lost the consumer properties, provided in the Federal law of 6/24/1998 No. 89-FZ "About industrial and consumption waste". The Association pays special attention to control of all the partners and their business processes concerning collecting and utilization on compliance to the current legislation and even more deeply, on compliance to the internal regulations, sometimes to more strict, than the law,|
