Recent Developments

Dividend: QIWI announces that following the determination of third-quarter 2014 financial results its Board of Directors recommended a dividend of USD 38 cents per share. The dividend record date is 24 November 2014, and the Company intends to pay the dividend on 26 November, 2014. The holders of ADSs will receive the dividend shortly thereafter.

2014 Guidance

QIWI is raising its 2014 outlook as compared to its previously announced outlook:

  • Total Adjusted Net Revenue is expected to increase by 32% to 40% over 2013
  • Adjusted Net Profit is expected to increase by 60% to 70% over 2013

We have noted the effects of the macroeconomic slowdown in Russia in Q2 and especially in Q3, which we believe can be long lasting and could have a significant negative effect on consumer spending in Russia and, accordingly, on our business. The extent of the slowdown, and if that were to result in a full scale banking crisis, is yet to be assessed. Moreover, we have recently introduced several limitations on the payment volumes and account balances in QIWI Wallet as a result of our ongoing compliance process. The effect of these limitations is not clear at this stage but could potentially negatively affect the number of our consumers and, consequently, our volumes and revenues. We, therefore, do not currently have enough visibility on our Total Adjusted Net Revenue and Adjusted Net Profit in Q4 2014 and 2015. We provide the 2014 guidance with broader than usual intervals between low and high ends of the range to accommodate for any uncertainty in respect of the matters discussed above. We reserve the right to revisit our guidance in case we see the situation changing and we will report our 2015 guidance as soon as we have any visibility upon 2015 results.

(3) Cost of payment revenue (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) primarily consists of transaction costs to acquire payments from our customers payable to agents, mobile operators, international payment systems and other parties.
(4) The Company does not record the compensation to employees and related taxes within cost of revenue separately for payment revenue and other revenue, therefore it has been allocated between payment revenue and other revenue in proportion to the relevant revenue amounts for the purposes of the reconciliation presented above.
(5) Other revenue primarily consists of revenue from inactivity fees, interest on deposits and on overdrafts provided to agents, cash and settlement services and advertising.
(6) Cost of other revenue (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) primarily consists of direct costs associated with other revenue and other costs, including but not limited to: compensation to employees and related taxes allocated to other revenue, costs of call-centers and advertising commissions.
(7) Income from depositary is presented in the separate line in reconciliation tables for convenience purposes, while it is included in other income in financial statements.
(8) The Forex gain on SPO funds as presented in the reconciliation of Net Profit to Adjusted Net Profit differs from the Foreign exchange loss/(gain), net in the reconciliation of Net Profit to Adjusted EBITDA as the latter includes all the foreign exchange losses/(gains) for the period, while the former only include the foreign exchange gain on the US dollar amount, which we received at SPO.
