Moscow City Telephone Network (MGTS) is planning to increase its net income by one third to 1.42bn rubles (about $44.6m) in 2003, the company's authorities said at a news conference today. The expected growth in the amount of sales proceeds is 21 percent this year. The net cash flow is to surge by 460m rubles ($14.45m) to 4.47bn rubles ($140.4m).

MGTS is planning to direct major investments to the repair of its network and the development of new technologies this year.

The company is planning to cut by 10 percent the amount of resources spent on servicing and paying off debts to 4.52bn rubles ($142m).
