MAXIMA GRUPĖ, UAB, consolidated turnover for 2011, compared to 2010, increased by 6.5 per cent and reached EUR 2.250 billion, excluding VAT.

During the reporting period, the companies of MAXIMA GRUPĖ invested EUR 63 million in business support and development.
"Last year, the turnover of MAXIMA GRUPĖ companies increased and was bigger than in 2010. However, it would be premature to say that consumption has been recovering. The growth of turnover in 2011 was determined by undergoing shopping network development and increasing inflation, but not by growth in quantity of product sales. Consumers still remain rational; they save, buy sale products and actively use discounts", says Mindaugas Bagdonavičius, MAXIMA GRUPĖ, UAB, General Manager.
According to the General Manager of MAXIMA GRUPĖ, it is not expected that 2012 will show sharp recovery of consumption; consequently, the economic situation in foreign and domestic markets is being closely monitored. The Group is planning sustainable development abroad. It will try to offer wide range of products and beneficial sales to our customers. A special focus will be placed on preparation and sales of fresh food.
