OMZ (Uralmash-Izhora Group) (RTS: OMZZ; LSE: OMZD) has announced its audited consolidated financial results for 2008 prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). 

In 2008 the Company's revenues from continuing operations rose 22% to US$ 1,174.6 million.  Gross and operating profit for the year reached US$ 252.2 million and US$ 107.4 million, respectively.

Throughout 2008 OMZ experienced stable growth in its main business segments.  The Company's Nuclear Equipment business grew 24% y-o-y to reach US$ 318.3 million.

Commenting on OMZ's 2008 financial results, OMZ's CEO, Mr. Victor Danilenko, said: 'We achieved very good results in 2008 in spite of the slow down in the global economy that began in the 3rd quarter. We believe this is due to the initiatives we launched several years ago in cost cutting, optimization of the product line and improvement in the corporate governance structure.'

The 2008 consolidated financial results of the Company were audited to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) by KPMG.  The complete set of accounts can be viewed on the Company's website and will be available at the Document Viewing Facility of the UKLA at The Financial Services Authority, 25 The North Colonnade, Canary WharfLondon E14 5HSUK.
