Magnit Plans to Open Official Office in Uzbekistan 
 
Krasnodar, Russia (April 6, 2021): Magnit PJSC (MOEX and LSE: MGNT; the Company, Magnit), one of Russia's leading 
retailers, plans to open an official office in the Republic of Uzbekistan. The move was announced at the International 
Industrial Trade Fair "Innoprom. Big Industrial Week in Uzbekistan", held on April 5-7 in Tashkent, in which the 
Company also participated. By opening such an office, Magnit will be able to ramp up its exports as well as drive 
development of imports from countries of Central Asia and the Middle East. The Company is currently working over the 
format and conditions for opening the office. 
At the trade fair, the Company presented its export potential along with goods produced at its own facilities and 
arranged for a number of negotiation sessions with potential partners in the top-priority areas of export-import 
operations. 
Magnit is the only Russian retailer having its own foods production facilities. The Company owns 17 plants in various 
regions of the country, which manufacture around 500 food articles. In 2020, these facilities put out 310,000 tons of 
products in total. 
These facilities are not focused on only satisfying domestic demand and covering the Company's own needs in 
high-quality private label products-Magnit is actively developing its export as well. For example, in 2020, the Company 
shipped around 500 tons of in-house produced pasta, confections, dry foods, snacks, tea, and coffee to Republic of 
Armenia, Kyrgyz Republic, Republic of Belarus, and other countries. 
In addition to this, Magnit works to build long-term partnerships with external suppliers and is looking for, among 
other things, opportunities to directly import exclusive goods and raw materials for development of its unique private 
label ranges. 
In 2021, the Company plans to increase the shipment volumes and be more active in developing its imports. In this 
regard, Magnit considers the Republic of Uzbekistan as a key partner for direct import of food products, primarily 
fruits, and light industry goods. These product categories are in great demand in Russia and will allow the Company to 
create a unique offering for the customers. 
 
"Our current production capacities, namely in Krasnodar region, allow us to significantly increase our export volumes. 
These facilities comply with the international standards of production safety and quality, and we want to utilize their 
potential in full. The opening of our office in Uzbekistan will ensure proper cooperation with foreign partners and 
enable us to develop our export and import operations, which we are very interested in. We do not rule out that in the 
future this office may become a hub for our operations with countries of Central Asia and the Middle East," - commented 
Ekaterina Lobanova, Director for Commercial Purchases and Category Management Support at Magnit.
