n the segment of high-yield securities with partially Russian risk, let us pay attention to the GeoProMining Eurobonds posted last month. The issuer is a mining company specializing in the extraction and processing of gold, silver, antimony and copper in Russia and Armenia. Last week, the company presented 6M2019 results, showing improved credit metrics. Thus, the metric "Net debt / EBITDA" amounted to 1.7 (at the end of 2018 - 2.0). Interest coverage ratio reaches 5.4. S&P and Fitch agencies hold a B + rating for GeoProMining obligations.
