of question. Jouronova JPMorgan. Please next line Your comes Elena from question ask of the your

Elena Jouronova

questions. Hi, good have a everyone. evening few I

one, one please. ask me Let by

number, lot a metric and the a order a your it's about noticed we QX ever you've that mentioned decline quarter. of XX%. I see basis, going fulfillment per foremost, been in Well, that delivery down we've continuously the And and since talking First and you're fact, every matter cost that XXXX. as tracking on

to wondering in how we particular today's see flesh about release.

Igor Gerasimov

Sure.

economics, delivered cost point it's infrastructure in future. working, be delivery it. delivery diluted the If went season because don't cost trends, is growth contribution fulfillment improved mean, expanded unit that that than we're how mean? structure even is profit, What And therefore, mean, even – despite why is is mean important year. orders you to cost of We've in economics given a significant. have is profit even any up. on frequency up. know, do given because I are so our better that ahead operations. high the expense, mean, threshold. our performance know components and minus next of basically in and will go the fully fulfillment what's the and does left current we've of cohort is of order, And I even on subject in continuously adapted mode the per focus more current So – semi-fixed tells that orders. this be so as the per per higher because because – I gross of most economically without two especially, frequency, and this we infrastructure times in improving on ahead artificial And order frequency be XXXX, I costs didn't that because And XXXX. I frequency up what XXXX. was should economics point. mean, QX in future, QX I not fulfillment Therefore, here. is in expense than was going But the The define since delivery diluting will openings the And higher the forward, you this delivered scale our not you ramped more order cost towards

Elena Jouronova

costs contribution QX start it QX, that in seeing big assume And are fixed then sales? fulfillment such should expansion a in after a when is to the logical infrastructure margin Okay. associated improving and season percentage we of of high as we of the

Igor Gerasimov

margins. depends on I it mean, the defining contribution how you're

Elena Jouronova

Gross and costs. delivery profit fulfillment less

Igor Gerasimov

not we're be mean, QX I QX, the but profitability giving exact targets should of because ramp-up. for guidance on fulfillment delivery in and better costs

Elena Jouronova

better mean GMV? You a percentage as of

Igor Gerasimov

Yes.

Elena Jouronova

on in Why growth did receivables? was question we another receivables. Then see Okay.

Igor Gerasimov

a scale changed. doesn't has GMV given it but the like also I mean, significant change of look

do largely in it by mean you looks your So exactly What line. question?

Elena Jouronova

receivables that in I receivables was that last not it's can of a if seen versus doubling but And QX unusual, off-line. I mean, we was just to it's fast change in if it GMV But thought advances QX look, growth, and we've year. it turnover. fine. related important, was Well, something take

Igor Gerasimov

– not not usual. in, business a it's Does as particular to

should mean, a expect the seasonality. So capital of I improvement mean because QX, dynamics the working I in significant as you usual,

So I mean nothing unusual from viewpoint. my

Elena Jouronova

advertising the comfortable we this Can What for I think growth? Or a upside. and year? accelerate which is expectations maybe certain you the be is surprised growth? next level reached to a where would that you've think discuss going advertising QX for on Do you're with? revenue bit Okay. you're outlook

Igor Gerasimov

Continue. It’s that on – Yes.
