It should be noted that at the end of April it became known that Agrocomplex became the fourth largest owner of agricultural land in Russia. His land bank is 640 thousand hectares at the end of 2016. The Agrocomplex rose to two positions due to major acquisitions last year, a review of the audit and consulting company BEFL stated.

Family members, according to SPARK-Interfax, remained shareholders of the company until March 2002: Alexander Tkachev's brother Alexey had 1%, and their father - 0.67%. Nikolay Tkachev was chairman of the Board of Directors of Agrocomplex JSC until his death in August 2014. The company's ownership structure is not disclosed.
