Total assets amounted to RUR 243.370 bn, which is 16% higher compared to Dec 31, 2008. The increase is accounted for by non-current assets growth.
Non-current assets grew by RUR 41.532 bn as the result of:

• increase of long-term investments by RUR 17.306 bn – positive revaluation of the stake in the Australian mining company Fortescue and participation in the equity of Belon coal company.
Current assets value went down mainly due to decrease of current accounts receivable by 24% from RUR 34.687 to RUR 26.490.
Long-term liabilities grew to RUR 42.186 bn as the result of investment programme implementation in order to widen the product portfolio and to increase the share of HVA products.
Short-term liabilities went down by 38% to RUR 27.279 bn because of decreased short-term borrowings by 21% to RUR 8.660 bn and payables to RUR 16.610 bn.
