“The past year has been different in many ways,” said Siarhei Kostevitch, CEO and Chairman of ASBISc Enterprises Plc. “It was also a year in which we were all forced to move most of our activities online, which initially resulted in increased expenses for equipment intended not only for work, but also for study and entertainment. It also released a large demand for IT equipment related to the expansion of communication networks, but also investments in the IT infrastructure itself. ASBIS, as usual, did not disappoint its customers and was able to fulfil orders within a specified period. Once again, we have proved that we can operate efficiently and flexibly, adjusting to the prevailing market circumstances.” 

Siarhei Kostevitch added: “2020 was a record year for us. And not only in terms of revenues, but also profits. We met our financial forecast, which was set at a high level. We are not slowing down at the moment. We are already working for another good year.”



The Former Soviet Union and Central & Eastern Europe regions traditionally have the largest share in the Group’s revenues. This has not changed either in the fourth quarter of 2020 or throughout 2020. The FSU region's share of ASBIS's total revenues increased to 54.5% in 2020 from 53.5% in 2019.


Country-by-country analysis confirms the excellent growth rates the Group was able to achieve in all major countries of operation. 

The highest sales growth in 2020 was achieved by Poland, and the greatest growth factors were processors, SSDs and memory modules (RAM). 

The countries with the highest sales growth in Q1-Q4 2020 were:·      

  • Poland – growth by 42.9%·
  • Kazakhstan – growth by 41.9%
  • United Arab Emirates – growth by 26.2%·
  • Russia – growth by 23.4%·
  • Belarus – growth by 18.3%
  • Ukraine – growth by 13.4%
  • Czech – growth by 10.5%. 

The increase in FSU sales was mainly generated by sales of new Apple products and business projects.
