This strategy was based on works and projects aimed at improving customer experience in shopping malls, innovative ideas and implemented information technologies.
Arricano’s team actively participated in profile conferences in Ukraine and abroad, including ICSC European Conference, shared experience and implemented the best business practices.
Arricano’s own media project Retail Consultant on Arricano Live YouTube channel has got more than 100,000 views related to legal, marketing, commercial and other aspects of cooperation with the company.
Arricano has won three of the twelve nominations of Shopping Centers Awards - 2018, organized by Ukrainian Real Estate Club, Europa Property and CEE Retail Awards. Arricano is “The Best Managing Company”, “The Best Shopping Mall. The choice of retail” and “The best marketing of a shopping mall”.
The company supports the concept of business integrity of the All-Ukrainian Network of Integrity and Compliance of UNIC, considering that B2B, B2C and B2G trends lead to Business 2 Government trend on the level of “honest business stories” that will create a guaranteed sustainable economic platform for Ukraine in order to attract international investors.
The company has declared 2017 as the year of customer experience. For Arricano team, it is very important not only to develop the facilities on a high-quality level, to cooperate with the best partners, improving the tenant mix, but also to work on improving the services' quality at all levels: in the store, cafe, restaurant, and at all points of the services provided by the shopping mall. Arricano continues the B2B Upgrade by Arricano program, launched in 2016, a series of educational projects for employees of the company's tenants. The results of regular marketing research conducted by the company indicate the need for the development of a project to train staff and the importance of using other tools to improve customer experience.
Arricano company is an active participant in business events in Ukraine and abroad, whose main goal is to improve the investment climate in the country and the reputation of «Ukraine» brand. The CEO and top management of the company openly advocate that transparent business conditions become the standard, and protection of foreign and local investments was a priority for the government of Ukraine.
The CSR initiative of Arricano within the Business 2 Students (B2S) project, launched in 2016, was supported by tenants, and in March 2017 the company has launched the third wave of the project, according to the results of which the KNUTE students are able to undergo internships in companies of leading retailers in Ukraine, and also in media companies developing the retail and development sector.
2016 was a service year for Arricano. The importance of the service business model for the company is determined not only by new projects aimed at improving services in all areas of the company, but also at the implementation of the new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. So, in 2016 Arricano launched a corporate social responsibility project B2S (Business to Students) by Arricano, in which top managers share practical knowledge and experience with students. Maintaining the value of the service business model, Arricano also initiated a CSR project for tenants - a course of lectures and practical training for the staff of the tenants of all shopping centers by the best trainers and practitioners.
In April Arricano published the results of the company for 2015. With a significant drop in the overall market, the decline in revenue in dollar equivalent amounted to only 10% in the reporting currency. The growth of operating profit amounted to 80%.
The company continues to fight for its illegally deprived asset - Sky Mall shopping center. On May 5, 2016 the London Court of International Arbitration has adopted a decision in the arbitration between Arricano Real Estate Plc and Stockman Interhold S.A. in respect of the ownership of shares of Assofit Holdings Limited, the holding company, which previously wholly owned Sky Mall shopping center, located in Kyiv, Ukraine. According to this decision, all the shares of Assofit Holdings Limited, which were previously owned by Stockman Interhold S.A., should be transferred to the ownership of Arricano Real Estate Plc. not later than June 5, 2016 for $ 0.
Arricano is strengthening its competitive position in the commercial property market: despite the economic downturn and decline in household income, Arricano’s shopping centres demonstrate stable retail footfall and increased interest from potential tenants. Thus, in the course of 2015 over 150 new lease agreements have been signed. As of 31 October 2015, the Gross Leasable Area of the 5 shopping centres under Arricano’s management reached 147,800 sqm.
The ambitious construction of the Lukianivka Mall (provisional title) in Kyiv is well underway. Lukianivka Mall will become the first shopping and entertainment complex in Ukraine to incorporate two local architectural heritage sites; namely the Lukianivka depot of the city railway and the power plant which serves it. To restore these architectural monuments to its original state, Arricano will make use of the best industry practice in the field of building restoration and the functional integration of heritage sites into the shopping complex.
The Odessa Mall project (provisional title) has also gained new momentum. In 2015 the Odessa Public Prosecution office retracted its claim to declare the previous court ruling on approval of the detailed site plan by the Odessa municipal authorities illegal. The site plan had been developed and financed by Arricano, and the project was supported by the local authorities and the Head of Odessa regional administration.
The Prospekt shopping and entertainment complex emerged as the winner of the State Architecture and Building Inspectorate competition in August 2015, having been declared the best communal venue of the year. It has also been listed in the “Project of the Year” category by two international organisations: Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE, London) and EEA Forum and Project Awards in Kyiv.
