According to Denis Kuskov, the CEO of Telecom Daily, Radario occupied 3-4% share of the market, or $4-5.4 million (300-400 million rubles). The last major deals in the market took place in 2018, when telecoms operator MTS bought 100% of Ticketland for $43.3 million (3.19 billion rubles) and 78.2% Ponominalu.ru for $4.3 million (321 million rubles), becoming one of the market leaders. Kassir.ru’s deal reflects the company’s willingness to sidestep MTS, Kuskov said.
According to forecasts of Evgeny Finkelstein, the CEO of Kassir.ru, the deal will increase the company’s sales by 30–35%, considering that Kassir.ru’s pre-crisis turnover was around $176.6 million (13 billion rubles). Finkelstein estimates the entire market for ticket sales to theaters and concerts at $1 billion (80 billion rubles). Thus, as a result of the takeover, the market share of Kassir.ru will grow from 16% to 22.5%.
In July 2021, Kassir.ru bought back its share from TCS Group (the parent company of Tinkoff Bank), which acquired its stake in Kassir.ru in 2018.
