Commenting on today’s announcement, Lev Leviev, Executive Chairman of AFI Development, said:

“Amidst a challenging operating environment and in the face of continued macroeconomic uncertainty, our focus during the first half of the year was firmly on managing factors under our control. At AFIMALL City, we supported our tenants through a number of marketing initiatives which resulted in strong growth in footfall to the Mall, against a market-wide decline. At the same time, we reinforced our efforts aimed at reducing our operating costs, which led to a significant reduction in all of our expenses. Finally, development and marketing of non-yielding properties continues with steady progress across all projects.”
