    TCS Group Holding PLC: Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January - June 2019

    TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS) 26-Jul-2019 / 18:02 MSK Dissemination of a Regulatory Announcement, transmitted by EQS Group. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. * * *Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January - June 2019Moscow, Russia - 26 July 2019. TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS LI) (the "Group"), Russia's leading provider of online financial and lifestyle services via its Tinkoff.ru ecosystem, today announces Tinkoff Bank's unaudited RAS financial highlights for January - June 2019. For the six months of 2019, net income stood at RUB 11.5bn, which is attributed to growth of net interest income, stable cost of funding, good quality of the loan portfolio and growth of revenue from new business lines. It should be noted that the RAS net income figure is not a reliable indicator of IFRS net income for the same period. There is a very low correlation between financial results under the two reporting standards as a result of significant accounting differences. Therefore, RAS figures should not be used as the basis for conclusions on forthcoming IFRS results. The gross loan portfolio amounted to RUB 339bn representing an increase of 75% y-o-y. The net loan portfolio amounted to RUB 292bn having increased by 79% y-o-y and constituted 66% of total assets (53% at year-end 2018). Retail customer accounts stood at RUB 274bn. Tinkoff Bank continued to retain substantial liquidity: the CBR N2 ratio stood at 38% (minimum requirement: 15%), and the CBR N3 ratio was 106% (minimum requirement: 50%). Retail customer accounts constituted 72% of total liabilities. Total assets increased by 51% y-o-y to RUB 440bn. As of 1 July 2019, total capital including retained profits (based on Form 123) amounted to RUB 78.2bn. The CBR N1 capital adequacy ratio was 11.15%. Core Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.1) was 7.72% and Main Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.2) was 10.42%. Note on RAS results Please note that the figures in this press release are calculated in accordance with Tinkoff Bank's internal methodology which is available at: http://static.tinkoff.ru/documents/eng/investor-relations/ras-methodology.pdf RAS results are not a reliable indicator of IFRS results due to significant accounting differences that make a direct read-across from RAS to IFRS results impossible. The main differences between RAS and IFRS are: * Consolidated results under IFRS include a number of additional items and results of its subsidiaries * Accrual of expenses under IFRS * Timing differences in accounting for restructured loans ('instalments') and loans going through courts * The effect from the revaluation of currency derivative instruments * The effect of deferred income tax.

These loans already comprised 32% of our loan book at the end of 1Q19. Many of these loans are cross-sold to existing customers whom we have brought into our ecosystem through current accounts and lifestyle services; they are also sold to new-to-bank mass-affluent and affluent customers. The initial results of new loan product pilots are positive and we are therefore planning to scale up these business-lines thereby continuing our loans growth. This loan growth is happening against a backdrop of four RWA uplifts in the period from March 2017 to April 2019. We have been weighing the various alternatives to ensure we have an adequate capital position to support this growth, including an up to $300m primary capital raise which would ensure that we have the necessary capital to seize the current profitable growth opportunity and to maintain ample capital buffers in the future.'To participate in the conference call, please use the following access details:Conference ID 3031348 Russian Federation+7 495 646 9190 United Kingdom+44 (0)330 336 9411 United States of America+1 646-828-8193 Please register approximately 10 minutes prior to the start of the call.

    Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January - April 2019

    TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS) 31-May-2019 / 17:40 MSK Dissemination of a Regulatory Announcement, transmitted by EQS Group. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. * * *Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January - April 2019Moscow, Russia - 31 May 2019. TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS LI) (the "Group"), Russia's leading provider of online financial and lifestyle services via its Tinkoff.ru ecosystem, today announces Tinkoff Bank's unaudited RAS financial highlights for January - April 2019. For the four months of 2019, net income stood at RUB 9.5bn, which is attributed to the growth of net interest income, lower cost of funding, improved quality of the loan portfolio and growth of revenue from new business lines. It should be noted that the RAS net income figure is not a reliable indicator of IFRS net income for the same period. There is a very low correlation between financial results under the two reporting standards as a result of significant accounting differences. Therefore, RAS figures should not be used as the basis for conclusions on forthcoming IFRS results. The gross loan portfolio amounted to RUB 303bn representing an increase of 67% y-o-y. The net loan portfolio amounted to RUB 260bn having increased by 70% y-o-y and constituted 62% of total assets (53% at year-end 2018). Retail customer accounts stood at RUB 252bn. Tinkoff Bank continued to retain substantial liquidity: the CBR N2 ratio stood at 41% (minimum requirement: 15%), and the CBR N3 ratio was 118% (minimum requirement: 50%). Retail customer accounts constituted 72% of total liabilities. Total assets increased by 45% y-o-y to RUB 420bn. In April 2019, Tinkoff Bank paid dividends to its shareholder (TCSGH) in the amount of RUB 3.2 bn. As a result, total capital including retained profits (based on Form 123) amounted to RUB 75.6bn. as of 1 May 2019. The CBR N1 capital adequacy ratio was 11.44%. Core Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.1) was 8.21% and Main Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.2) was 11.15%. Note on RAS results Please note that the figures in this press release are calculated in accordance with Tinkoff Bank's internal methodology which is available at: http://static.tinkoff.ru/documents/eng/investor-relations/ras-methodology.pdf RAS results are not a reliable indicator of IFRS results due to significant accounting differences that make a direct read-across from RAS to IFRS results impossible. The main differences between RAS and IFRS are: * Consolidated results under IFRS include a number of additional items and results of its subsidiaries * Accrual of expenses under IFRS * Timing differences in accounting for restructured loans ('instalments') and loans going through courts * The effect from the revaluation of currency derivative instruments * The effect of deferred income tax.

TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS LI) (the "Group") Russia's leading provider of online financial and lifestyle services via its Tinkoff.ru ecosystem, announces a further expansion and deepening of its long-term management incentive and retention plan (MLTIP). The Board in Q1 2019 approved an increase in the number of participants, making awards to 10 new participants.The Group had previously announced that the target total size of the MLTIP pool would be nearly 5.6% of the Group's current share capital.Each MLTIP wave is awarded over six years, materially subject to the fulfilment of annual KPIs. All participants are employees of the Group, working full time in the Russian Federation. The aim of this initiative, is to ensure that the interests of the broader management team are closely aligned with the interests of shareholders to grow the Group's value, as it continues to grow the scale and scope of its operations.Oleg Tinkov, the founder of Tinkoff Bank, said: "Not so many companies in Russia have similar long-term incentive plans, and in the conservative financial industry our reward system is truly one of a kind. Our LTIP scheme covers some 100 people - my partners and business co-owners \- and we are planning to add more participants to this program in the future. I am particularly proud that most of the LTIP participants started their careers at Tinkoff from entry-level positions, with approximately 10% of them joining the Company as call centre operators. Newly eligible participants are an integral part of the team that commits every effort to making Tinkoff one of the most innovative financial companies globally. I invite my teammates to share our success and I am confident that our long-term incentive plan will keep them motivated to drive further business growth, seek best innovative solutions and make everything possible for our new achievements."For enquiries: Tinkoff BankDarya Ermolina Head of PR \+ 7 495 648-10-00 (ext. 2009)d.ermolina@tinkoff.ruTinkoff BankLarisa Chernysheva IR Department+ 7 495 648-10-00 (ext. 2312)ir@tinkoff.ru About the GroupTCS Group Holding PLC is an innovative provider of online retail financial services.
