Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January-September 2016

Moscow, Russia - 18 October 2016. TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS LI) (the "Group"), including Tinkoff Bank, Russia's leading provider of online retail financial services, today announces Tinkoff Bank's unaudited RAS financial highlights for January-September 2016.


For the first nine months of 2016, net income stood at RUB 6.4bn versus RUB 1.7bn in January-September 2015 which is attributed to the growth of net interest income and better quality of the loan portfolio.


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 115.9bn representing an increase of 16% y-o-y. The net loan portfolio amounted to RUB 94.5bn having increased by 28% y-o-y and constituted 58% of total assets (64% at year-end 2015). 


Retail customer accounts increased by 47% y-o-y to RUB 107.7bn. Tinkoff Bank continued to retain substantial liquidity: the CBR N2 ratio stood at 49.9% (minimum requirement: 15%), and the CBR N3 ratio was 179% (minimum requirement: 50%). Retail customer accounts constituted 78% of total liabilities.


Total assets increased by 40% y-o-y to RUB 162.5bn.


As of 1 October 2016, total capital including retained profits (based on Form 123) amounted to RUB 28.3 bn. The CBR N1 capital adequacy ratio was 11.58%. Both Core Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.1) and Main Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.2) were 7.26%.



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:


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.
