TCS Group Holding PLC / Miscellaneous - Medium Priority TCS Group Holding PLC: Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January - April 2017 19-May-2017 / 15:43 CET/CEST Dissemination of a Regulatory Announcement, transmitted by EquityStory.RS, LLC - a company of EQS Group AG. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. Statement on Tinkoff Bank's RAS Financial Highlights for January - April 2017 *Moscow, Russia - 19 May 2017. *TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS LI) (the 'Group'), Russia's leading provider of online retail financial services, including Tinkoff Bank and Tinkoff Insurance, today announces Tinkoff Bank's unaudited RAS financial highlights for January - April 2017. For the first four months of 2017, net income stood at RUB 6.3bn versus RUB 2.4bn in January-April 2016 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 130.8bn representing an increase of 22% y-o-y. The net loan portfolio amounted to RUB 108.6bn having increased by 28% y-o-y and constituted 59% of total assets (57% at year-end 2016). Retail customer accounts stood at RUB 117.4bn. Tinkoff Bank continued to retain substantial liquidity: the CBR N2 ratio stood at 51% (minimum requirement: 15%), and the CBR N3 ratio was 150% (minimum requirement: 50%). Retail customer accounts constituted 76% of total liabilities. Total assets increased by 25% y-o-y to RUB 185.1bn. As of 1 May 2017, total capital including retained profits (based on Form 123) amounted to RUB 33.4bn. The CBR N1 capital adequacy ratio was 12.55%. Both Core Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.1) and Main Capital Adequacy Ratio (N1.2) were 8.85%. Our strong April 2017 RAS results are driven by two major continuing trends: a) an ongoing quality growth of our consumer finance business, carrying on from 2016; b) a growing contribution from our non-credit fees-and-commission business lines. 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. *For enquiries:* Tinkoff Bank Tinkoff Bank *Darya Ermolina* *Larisa Chernysheva* Head of PR IR Department + 7 495 648-10-00 (ext. 2009) + 7 495 648-10-00 (ext. 2312) email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org  *About the Group* TCS Group Holding PLC is an innovative provider of online retail financial services operating in Russia through a high-tech branchless platform.
