“Today, I am delighted to present another set of excellent results,” said Mikhail Zhukov, Chief Executive Officer of HeadHunter Group PLC. Against the backdrop of a challenging macro environment, we continued to deliver strong revenue growth in key market segments as a result of balanced monetization and customer acquisition strategies. Also this quarter, we continued demonstrating our ability to increase revenue whilst improving profitability. We continued to deliver on our mobile-first strategy and in the third quarter of 2019 over 80% of total traffic came from mobile devices. We deem this especially important in the light of our increasingly high focus on blue collar professionals. Recently, as a testimony of our relentless product focus, we were granted a patent for a comprehensive machine learning powered candidate recommendation system that is embedded into various HeadHunter user interfaces. This technology provides our clients with an opportunity to increase the efficiency of their recruitment process by automatically matching candidates with relevant vacancies. We believe such recommendation and curation systems will continue to play an integral part in our product proposition going forward. We continue to explore opportunities in both market penetration and monetization enhancement as we implement our long-term growth strategy.”
