In Q3 2019, the Company continued to demonstrate gradual recovery in operating performance, posting a 2.0% YoY growth in net retail revenue. Business efficiency initiatives launched towards the end of 2018 were focused on an overall improvement in fresh and ultra-fresh offer, service level, and logistics operations. Implemented with the ultimate goal of improving shopping frequency, the initiatives continued to deliver impact throughout the quarter while partially offsetting the macroeconomic headwinds.

To enhance our assortment management and improve the customer shopping experience, we initiated an in-store rezoning programme in Q3 2019. The programme will help harmonise and standardise the assortment within our available trading space in accordance with approved clustering. The rezoning initiative was successfully piloted in the O'KEY hypermarket located in the Columbus shopping centre in Moscow during the third quarter.

During the quarter, we continued to work on our customer value proposition by expanding the assortment range of 'O'KEY's selection' private label brand to target middle-class customers, modernizing promo areas in hypermarkets, and improving our promo offers. Successful marketing campaigns for the non-food category during the reported quarter helped sustain the average ticket growth. As continuous improvement of our assortment mix and higher quality of fruit and vegetables remain our top priority we continue to grow own imports and focus more on capturing the synergies with our discounter business.

To improve on-shelf availability to better meet the daily needs of modern customers, we implemented a series of logistics initiatives in Q3 2019, aimed at more efficient palletising processes at distribution centres and faster pallet unloading at hypermarkets.

In the third quarter, we strengthened our top-management team with the addition of Olga Surnina, Marketing Director, and Tatyana Bukanova, Real Estate Director.

In the third quarter of 2019, the Company continued to demonstrate solid LFL growth, with net retail revenue up by 12.1% YoY and the discounter value proposition continuing to gain traction with customers. The average LFL ticket increased by 8.0% YoY, supported by an improving basket mix and continued food CPI growth. LFL traffic went up by 3.8% YoY, driven by better pricing and a more attractive assortment. Prices for essential goods at the Group's discounters remained among the most competitive in the industry in Q3 2019.

During the third quarter, the Company continued to refine and enhance its customer value proposition by improving the assortment mix. Paying high attention to the quality and appeal of our private label (PL) products, we rebrand them on an ongoing basis as well as continuously enhance their recipes. In the third quarter, the Company rebranded several existing private label brands and introduced new private label SKUs, bringing the total number of SKUs to 2,500. The share of private labels as a percentage of revenue was 49% as at the end of the quarter. To enhance the appeal and user-friendly style of our store interiors, we also redesigned the in-store bakery area during the quarter.
