Presentation of the Investment Project Recently, agricultural projects have been actively developing in the Russian Far East, mainly within the framework of special economic regimes. The implementation of such projects is aimed at improving the food security of the macroregion, eliminating the deficit of local food products, as well as reducing the cost of food products. Gradually the situation in agriculture in the Far Eastern Federal District is equalizing, but so far the macroregion remains the least developed of all federal districts of the country in this sector. That is why regional and federal authorities are paying much attention to support measures for both farmers and businesses.
The main difficulties in the development of agriculture in the Russian Far East are connected with the climatic features of the macroregion. Most of the territories are of little use for agriculture (a total of 8 million hectares of agricultural land). Accordingly, there is a problem of the region's self-sufficiency in food, higher dependence on external supplies from other regions of Russia, as well as on the import of products. Nevertheless, the southern part of the macroregion is quite promising in terms of the development of the industry, where in fact the entire volume of agricultural products of the Russian Far East is produced. At the same time, the Russian Far East has its own specialization, growing soybeans. The main agricultural areas are still the cultivation of corn, wheat, rice, barley, rapeseed, the development of meat and dairy cattle, and the establishment of processing enterprises. One of the most promising agricultural projects of Khabarovsk Krai is the project
for the construction of the wholesale distribution center ORAP AgroHab (Amurzerno LLC). The investor is a resident of the "Khabarovsk" ASEZ. The project involves receiving, storing, and processing farming agricultural products. The implementation of the project will reduce logistics costs and retail prices by 10%.
DESCRIPTION AND STAGES OF THE PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION The AgroHab wholesale distribution agro-industrial park is a part of Amurzerno group of companies (the Group also includes Amurzerno LLC – grain wholesale in the domestic market of the Far Eastern Federal District and for export to Japan as well as Ptitsefabrika "Komsomolskaya" JSC – the production of chicken eggs). After the AgroHab agro-industrial park is completed, the capacity of one-time storage will be 63,000 tons (potatoes, vegetables, fish, meat, grain), and the processing capacity will be 94.5 thousand tons. The objects planned for construction as part of the project 1. The wholesale distribution center, including • Vegetable storage for 25.3 thousand tons, for storage, conditioning, and deep processing of vegetable products and potatoes
KEY FINANCIAL INDICATORS The total amount of investments is 3,270.0 million rubles Own funds – 817.5 million rubles Borrowings – 2,452.5 million rubles Payback period: 7 years IRR: 26% NPV: 295 million rubles
The project will be implemented in three stages. In 2018–2019, it is planned to build capacities for storage of vegetable products, in 2019–2021, expansion of capacity for storage of vegetable products, construction of a plant for post-harvesting crop products, shops for the production of fish products, construction of grain storage facilities, construction of flour and feed productions, a milk processing shop. At the final stage, in 2022–2023, it is planned to bring the capacity of the storage of vegetable products to the project aims, install a technological line for deep processing of vegetable products, build a workshop for the production of meat semi-finished products, and build a social food factory. At the moment the project is at a high stage of readiness. Namely, ORAP Agrohab LLC received the status of a ASEZ resident ("Rakitnoye" site), the investor concluded a lease agreement with the management company for the period until December 30, 2065, exploration works and geological works were completed, the draft design and the master plan for the site of the resident were received. The Japanese company Sojitz Machinery completed the engineering works of the first stage of the vegetable store; a contract with the Dutch company Tolsma-Grisnich for the supply of equipment was signed; technical expertise (non-governmental) was obtained; the Ministry for Development of the Russian Far East issued a construction permit.
PLAN FOR FIRST-STAGE IMPLEMENTATION AND PROPOSAL FOR INVESTORS In order to successfully implement the first stage of the project in 2018, it is necessary to raise 200 million rubles for the capital of
ORAP Agrohab LLC and 582 million rubles for debt financing at the expense of Rosselkhozbank JSC.
