         one of the country's largest poultry producers


    Cherkizovo Group (LSE: CHE), Russia's largest meat and fodder producer,
announces the acquisition of LISKO Broiler, a poultry producer in the
Voronezh
Region in Southern Russia. The acquisition will make Cherkizovo Group the
country's largest poultry producer, with production capacity exceeding half
a
million tonnes live weight per year*. APK Mikhailovsky LLC, which is a part
of
the Cherkizovo Group, acted as a buyer. The deal was approved by the
Federal
Antimonopoly Service.

    LISKO Broiler is the largest poultry producer in the Voronezh Region
and one of the market leaders in the Central and Southern Federal
Districts. Based on Russian Poultry Union data, LISKO ranks seventh
among top poultry producers with a 2% nationwide market share. Its
production capacity is approximately 95,000 tonnes (live weight) per
year.

    LISKO's full-cycle production assets that will be integrated to
Cherkizovo Group include:

     - 7 poultry production facilities;

     - 4 parent flock sites with a slaughtering facility of 4000 heads
per hour;

     - 2 reproduction flock sites;

     - Slaughtering complex with capacity of 9000 heads per hour;

     It is worth mentioning that all LISKO production facilities are
built in accordance with modern standards and are highly efficient."We have
made a major step towards market leadership, which is in
line with our long-term strategy combining organic growth and M&A.
Acquisition of LISKO not only gives us strategic advantages, such as
increasing the scale of our business and access to Southern Russian
markets, including a synergy effect that we will feel even in the first
year of integration. LISKO's facilities are located in Voronezh Region,
where Cherkizovo has a land bank, and this gives us an opportunity to
build a vertical integration chain. Leveraging on Cherkizovo's
distribution capabilities will help to increase market access for
LISKO's products and save on logistics. We have acquired a quality
asset at a price below the replacement value, and I am sure this deal
will be beneficial for both our shareholders and customers", Cherkizovo
CEO Sergei Mikhailov said in commenting on the deal.
