Most of these 577 billion rubles (or 546 billion, if you count on the effective shares of businessmen in each company) are the contracts of Stroygazmontazh by Arkady Rotenberg, the general contractor for the construction of the Kerch bridge. In 2016, the amount of contracts awarded or competitions won by him amounted to 416.5 billion rubles.

"Stroygazmontazh" was formed from the five Gazprom subsidiaries bought by Rothenberg in 2008. He united them into a single holding, which is now considered one of the main beneficiaries of Gazprom's construction projects. The proceeds of "Stroygazmontazh" since 2009 have grown almost threefold - from 100 to 276.4 billion rubles in 2016.

However, in 2012 the Federal Antimonopoly Service published a message that was allowed by OOO Development-Stroy, already owning 25% of Proffinans' shares, to acquire the remaining 75% and become the sole owner of the company.

At that time, the owners of "Development-Story" were "CC Development" and Artem Obolensky - a member of the board of directors of the SMP Bank Rothenberg, he had 67.5% of the company. However, in December 2015, the share Obolensky almost completely passed to Boris Rothenberg, Obolensky remained 0.3%. Soon Boris Rotenberg became chairman of the board of directors of GVSU.

In 2016, the GVSU Center won contracts and concluded contracts for 51 billion rubles. Recently GVSU became a participant in the Moscow demolition program of five-story buildings and will build houses for immigrants.
