To achieve the strategic goals set to SCM Group - growing the business value, securing leadership in the markets of our presence and increasing SCM's contribution to development of Ukraine's economy, we apply the following mechanisms:
- Reasonable diversification
The share of industrial businesses (firstly, in mining and metals and power enterprises) makes 90% in the overall structure of SCM Group today. To ensure a sustainable growth of the shareholder value in the long term, the company decided to continue with diversification of the Group's investment portfolio and develop SCM"s business in new modern industries. The share of non-industrial - finance, telecommunications, media and others – businesses within the Group is expected to go up to 30%. To meet this objective SCM will improve its position in the existing promising sectors and invest in acquisition of new companies. We do not plan to curtail our operations in the mining and metals in power industry, however. On the contrary, we will encourage further development of industrial assets within the Group.
- Continued improvements in corporate structure and corporate governance system
SCM’s system of corporate governance is in line with the highest international standards and is based on world best practice. It allows the company to quickly and effectively make the decisions necessary to ensure the dynamic growth of all the Group's sectoral holdings and business areas. Being the majority shareholder and the main investor, SCM governs its holdings by delegating representatives to sit on the Supervisory Boards of its holdings. The participation of minority shareholders in the governance of these holdings is also executed through their representatives on the Supervisory Boards. In the course of several years, this corporate governance structure has demonstrated its effectiveness and is being constantly improved.
- Continuous improvement of operating efficiency of every Group's business.
- Conservative approach to borrowings
SCM regularly invests in organic growth of its business areas. At the same time we are ready to invest in acquisition of new businesses that will meet the approved strategy of the Group's development.
