NICOSIA, Cyprus, Nov. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QIWI plc, (NASDAQ:QIWI) ("QIWI" or the "Company") today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Third-Quarter 2015 Operating and Financial Highlights

  • Total Adjusted Net Revenue increased 6% to RUB 2,529 million ($38.2 million)
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 12% to RUB 1,340 million ($20.2 million)
  • Adjusted Net Profit decreased 3% to RUB 1,133 million ($17.1 million), or RUB 18.74 per diluted share
  • Total payment volume increased 65% to RUB 270.5 billion ($4.1 billion)
  • Active kiosks and terminals decreased 15% to 149,553 units
  • Active Qiwi Wallet accounts increased 1% to 16.7 millions

"We are continuing to confront the pressure from both the macroeconomic slowdown in Russia and stricter regulation of the agent network," said Sergey Solonin, QIWI's chief executive officer. "Despite the abovementioned factors, we undertook actions necessary to maintain the agents' economics and do not expect any further substantial deterioration of the agent network. Contact and Rapida are bringing synergies to the group and strengthening our positions in the payments market in Russia. We continue to see plenty of opportunities ahead, especially in gaining market share in the key verticals, which will be the main focus for the company in the near term."

Third Quarter 2015 Results

Revenues: Total Adjusted Net Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was RUB 2,529 million ($38.2 million), an increase of 6% compared with RUB 2,379 million in the prior year.

Payment Adjusted Net Revenue was RUB 1,836 million ($27.7 million), an increase of 5% compared with RUB 1,753 million in the prior year. Payment Adjusted Net Revenue growth was predominantly driven by an increase in payment volume across all verticals, especially the E-commerce and Money Remittances market verticals, that was in turn partially offset by the declining net revenue yields primarily as a result of the acquisition and consolidation of Contact and Rapida which operate on significantly lower net revenue yields than legacy QIWI business.

Other Adjusted Net Revenue, which is principally composed of revenue from inactivity fees, interest revenue and gain from currency swaps and overdrafts provided to agents, revenue from rent of space for kiosks and sale of kiosks, cash and settlement services and advertising, was RUB 693 million ($10.5 million), an increase of 11% compared with RUB 626 million in the prior year. The growth in the third-quarter was mainly due to the increase in inactivity fees, interest revenue from deposits, gain from currency swaps and overdrafts provided to agents, slightly offset by our continuing investment in improving clients' service, such as call center costs, decreasing revenue from rent of space of kiosks and cash and settlement services.

Adjusted EBITDA: For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, Adjusted EBITDA was RUB 1,340 million ($20.2 million), a decrease of 12% compared with RUB 1,520 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA decline was mainly driven by 44% growth of SG&A cost including: bad debt expense, payroll, rent and office maintenance costs as well as professional fees resulting from the ongoing M&A activities. Adjusted EBITDA margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Total Adjusted Net Revenue) was 53.0% compared with 63.9% in the prior year.

Adjusted Net Profit: For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, Adjusted Net Profit was RUB 1,133 million ($17.1 million), a decrease of 3% compared with RUB 1,163 million in the prior year. The decrease in Adjusted Net Profit was primarily driven by the same factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA, though significantly mitigated by operational ForEx gains.

Other Operating Data: For the quarter ended September 30, 2015, total payment volume was RUB 270.5 billion ($4.1 billion), an increase of 65% compared with RUB 164.4 billion in the prior year. Payment volume increased across all verticals driven largely by Contact and Rapida businesses as well as organic growth in E-commerce and Money Remittances market verticals. Average payment net revenue yield was 0.68%, a decrease of 39 bps compared with 1.07% in the prior period primarily due to the consolidation of lower yielding Contact and Rapida businesses.

The total average Net Revenue Yield was 0.93%, a decrease of 52 bps as compared with 1.45% in the prior year.

The number of active kiosks and terminals was 149,553, a decrease of 15% compared with the prior year, driven by the stricter regulation of the kiosk market by Central Bank of Russia. The number of active Visa Qiwi Wallet accounts was 16.7 million in the third quarter 2015, an increase of 0.2 million, or 1%, as compared with 16.5 million in the third quarter 2014.

Recent Developments

Dividend: QIWI continues to pursue different M&A opportunities and considers the timing and current market conditions to favor this strategy. We are focusing on business with a long-term growth potential in the areas complementary to our core business. Our current view is to refrain from paying dividends for the next few quarters.

Impact of Contact and Rapida: Starting June 1st 2015 we consolidate financial results of Contact and Rapida in our financial statements which are presented in the Annex below. Contact and Rapida have become a strong addition to the core business of QIWI contributing to Money Remittances, Financial Services and E-commerce market verticals as well as significantly increasing our share of the Russian money remittance market, broadening our merchant relationships and consumer base and strengthening our team. The integration is going in accordance with the plan.

Regulation by the Central Bank of Russia: Our kiosk network in Russia was affected by the enhanced controls that the Central Bank of Russia has implemented to ensure compliance by the agents with legislation that requires them to remit their proceeds to special accounts, as disclosed in our Form 6-K filed on November 2, 2015.

Although this decrease negatively affects the size of our physical distribution network in the short-term, we continue to believe that increased transparency in the kiosk market will ultimately allow us to improve our market share and strengthen our competitive advantages.

2015 Guidance1

QIWI reiterates its guidance in respect of 2015 outlook:

  • Total Adjusted Net Revenue is expected to increase by 18% to 22% over 2014
  • Adjusted Net Profit is expected to increase by 18% to 22% over 2014

The overall macroeconomic conditions continue to adversely affect the purchasing power of Russian population as high inflation combined with decreasing real wages put pressure on the disposable income. This in turn leads to the overall decrease in consumer spending and consequently our payment volumes, especially in Financial Services market vertical, which is impacted by several factors including lack of refinancing options for the consumers, and aforementioned decrease in real disposable income.

(2) Payment volume by market verticals and consolidated payment volume consist of the amounts paid by our customers to merchants included in each of those market verticals less intra-group eliminations. The methodology of payment volumes allocation between different market verticals in QIWI's international operations (including Kazakhstan) may differ from the methodology used by QIWI's Russian operations. We therefore retain the right to restate the presented volumes, net revenues and net revenue yields data in case the methodology of QIWI's international operations will be brought in conformity with the methodology of QIWI's Russian operations.
(3) Payment volume by market verticals and consolidated payment volume consist of the amounts paid by our customers to merchants included in each of those market verticals less intra-group eliminations. The methodology of payment volumes allocation between different market verticals in Contact and Rapida may differ from the methodology used by QIWI. We therefore retain the right to restate the presented volumes, net revenues and net revenue yields data in case the methodology of Contact and Rapida will be brought in conformity with the methodology used by QIWI.
(4) Payment Adjusted Net Revenue is calculated as the difference between Payment Gross Revenue and Payment Costs. Payment Gross Revenue primarily consists of merchant and consumer fees. Payment Costs primarily consist of commission to agents.
(5) We measure the numbers of our kiosks and terminals on a daily basis, with only those kiosks and terminals being taken into calculation through which at least one payment has been processed during the day, which we refer to as active kiosks and terminals. The period end numbers of our kiosks and terminals are calculated as an average of the amount of active kiosks and terminals for the last 30 days of the respective reporting period.
(6) Active Visa Qiwi Wallet accounts calculated on a yearly basis, i.e. an active account is an account that had at least one transaction within the last 12 months from the reporting date.
