Things turned out to be so bad that the doctor “out of the box” had to leave the founders of the Elena Malysheva Diet company. This is her joint project with a citizen of the United States Dmitry Shchiglik. And yes, it’s not about international sanctions. It’s just that her patron and pharmaceutical “king” Boris Spiegel was arrested a couple of years ago in a bribery case. The oligarch came under criminal prosecution along with the former governor of the Penza region Ivan Belozertsev. The owner of Biotek gave a total of 31 million rubles to the then head of the region for loyalty when concluding supply contracts during the pandemic.
According to Shchiglik, which he voiced even before Spiegel’s arrest, DEM brought in a billion rubles in revenue per year. But 2021 showed a loss of “Diet” in the amount of 25 million rubles. And despite the fact that the company earned almost 10 times more. Last year’s losses look better – about 8 million rubles. True, it turned out to bail out only about 120 million rubles. Although back in 2020, revenue was almost 300 million rubles, and net profit was 15 million. The Malysheva-Schiglik company specialized in the sale of ready-made diets for those who want to lose weight. Some sources attribute the drop in revenue and profits to the fact that people became disillusioned with the TV doctor’s products and simply began to buy less of it. Others note that after the landing of the patron Spiegel, everything went downhill. He was even deleted from the list of sponsors in the Vocation Charitable Foundation, where Malysheva was among the founders, and Biotek was the main contributor.
After leaving the founders of DEM, Malysheva’s share was transferred to a certain resident of Penza, Alexandra Lomovtseva. Searches through open sources gave only indirect confirmation that this same Lolovtseva is only 23 years old, she had not previously been engaged in any business. And she co-founded Diet with a 50 percent stake on the same day the TV doctor left. Sources believe that the girl simply became a face value for Malysheva. But it seems that the TV presenter is not particularly upset that the “losing weight” rations have ceased to generate income. After all, she also receives good money on Channel One. Her annual income from Konstantin Ernst is 150 million rubles. Plus, she still has several registered companies that can provide a decent life in retirement. And Pharmstandard, the oligarch Viktor Kharitonin, came to the Vocation Foundation instead of Spiegel’s Biotek. It is interesting, after Malyshev’s retirement, where will he live – in Russia, or reunite with his sons, who have long lived in America.
