The company’s core activity is financing lease transactions involving railcars, port equipment, water vessels, and various types of special-purpose machinery for the mining and metallurgical industry, as well as operating rolling stock and special-purpose machinery through subsidiaries. We decided to focus on the areas in which the Company is most competent. Now we are actively developing financial leasing programs for commercial real estate, sea- and riverboats, aircraft and special equipment, and we have significantly improved our results in the operating activities. We have expanded our geography in the mining sector and offer contracting services at major fields of the Kuznetsk Coal Basin, Republic of Buryatia, Sakhalin and Novosibirsk region. We are successfully intensifying our activities in the railway sector through Atlant, our subsidiary. In 2021, the company’s railcar fleet reached 61,600 units.
We are pleased that the Russian Government realizes the importance of TFM Group’s activities for uninterrupted operation of the transport and mining industries and has included TransFin-M in the list of backbone companies for the country’s transport infrastructure. Our success has been confirmed by rating agencies. ACRA confirmed the company’s credit rating in December 2021 to BBB+ (RU).
TransFin-M has ambitious development goals, and it is a great pleasure to see our work results testifying to the efficiency of our efforts. I am convinced that thanks to the cooperation between the TransFin-M team, our partners, clients and investors, we will achieve all our targets, and the operating results will be solid as ever.
