  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 25% to RUB 1,669 million ($26.4 million)

“Although in the third quarter we continued to face challenges across most market verticals in our core business that were triggered among other factors by the macroeconomic slowdown in Russia, I’m happy to provide some important updates on our strategy and development,” said Sergey Solonin, QIWI’s chief executive officer. “Notwithstanding the challenging market, we managed to increase our payment adjusted net revenue as well as adjusted net profit. Further, I’m glad to introduce our new project SOVEST – an incredibly convenient and beneficial financial instrument targeted at a wide range of customers. I believe that although current environment pressures our core growth, we are firmly positioned to execute our strategy, widen our scope of services and enrich current payment landscape with new innovative solutions.”

Third Quarter 2016 Results

Revenues: Total Adjusted Net Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 was RUB 2,662 million ($42.1 million), an increase of 5% compared with RUB 2,529 million in the prior year.

Payment Adjusted Net Revenue was RUB 2,105 million ($33.3 million), an increase of 15% compared with RUB 1,836 million in the prior year. Payment Adjusted Net Revenue growth was predominantly driven by an improvement in yields across all market verticals resulting from pricing optimization and shift in product mix as well as volume growth in the E-commerce market vertical partially offset by a decrease in payment volumes in the Telecom, Money Remittances, Financial Services and Other market verticals.

Other Adjusted Net Revenue, which is principally composed of revenue from inactivity fees, interest revenue including revenue on overdrafts provided to agents, revenue from rent of space for kiosks, cash and settlement services and advertising, was RUB 557 million ($8.8 million), a decrease of 20% compared with RUB 693 million in the prior year. The decline in the third quarter was mainly due to decrease in cash and settlement services. Inactivity fees for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 were RUB 348 million ($5.5 million) compared with RUB 321 million in the prior year as a result of changes to the write-off policy. Other Adjusted Net Revenue excluding revenue from fees for inactive accounts decreased 44% compared with the same period in the prior year.

Total Adjusted Net Revenue excluding revenue from fees for inactive accounts increased 5% compared with the same period in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA: For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, Adjusted EBITDA was RUB 1,669 million ($26.4 million), an increase of 25% compared with RUB 1,340 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA increase was largely due to the increase in Adjusted Net Revenue as well as the immaterial bad debt expense in the third quarter 2016 as opposed to the bad debt expense of RUB 90 million in the third quarter of 2015 and lower personnel (excluding the effect of share-based payments) and office maintenance expenses as compared to the same period in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Total Adjusted Net Revenue) was 62.7% compared with 53.0% in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA excluding inactivity fees was RUB 1,321 million ($20.9 million), an increase of 30% compared with RUB 1,019 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin excluding inactivity fees was 57.1% compared with 46.2% in the prior year.

Adjusted Net Profit: For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, Adjusted Net Profit was RUB 1,271 million ($20.1 million), an increase of 12% compared with RUB 1,133 million in the prior year. The increase in Adjusted Net Profit was primarily driven by the same factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA offset by a decrease of foreign exchange gain1 generated in the third quarter 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted Net Profit excluding inactivity fees (net of tax) increased 13% compared with the same period in the prior year.

Other Operating Data: For the quarter ended September 30, 2016, total payment volume was RUB 214.5 billion ($3.4 billion), a decrease of 19% compared with RUB 265.1 billion in the prior year. Dynamics of payment volume was driven by mixed trends across market verticals with growth in E-commerce offset by declining volumes across all other market verticals. Payment average net revenue yield was 0.98%, an increase of 29 bps compared with 0.69% in the prior year primarily due to the optimization of pricing and shift of the revenue mix towards higher yielding services.

Total average Net Revenue Yield was 1.24%, an increase of 29 bps as compared with 0.95% in the prior year. Total average Net Revenue Yield excluding the effect of inactivity fees was 1.08%, an increase of 25 bps as compared with the same period in the prior year.

The number of active kiosks and terminals was 163,049 including Contact and Rapida physical points of service, a decrease of 6% compared with the prior year, primarily resulting from enhanced controls that the Central Bank of Russia has implemented over the agents. The number of active Visa Qiwi Wallet accounts was 16.5 million as of the end third quarter of 2016, a decrease of 0.2 million, or 1%, as compared with 16.7 million in the third quarter of 2015. The decrease was driven mainly by the lower marketing expenses aimed at the acquisition of new consumers at the end of 2015 and first half of 2016 as compared to a prior year, as well as the decrease in the kiosk network in Russia in the second half of 2015 and overall economic downturn affecting consumer activity.

Recent Developments

Dividend: Following the determination of third quarter 2016 financial results our Board of Directors approved a dividend of USD 22 cents per share. The dividend record date is December 5, 2016, and the Company intends to pay the dividend on December 6, 2016. The holders of ADSs will receive the dividend shortly thereafter.

Dividend distributions for the remainder of 2016 are subject to our future cash flow needs, including our cash requirements in connection with our new projects or otherwise.

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 adversely affects the availability and convenience of our services to consumers in the short-term through the reduction of the size of our network, we continue to believe that increased transparency in the kiosk market has already improved our market share and will allow us to improve our market share in the future and strengthen our competitive advantages.

SOVEST: today QIWI announced its new project SOVEST. SOVEST is a new consumer oriented payment-by installments card product developed to help customers get easy, convenient and transparent access to funds and purchase goods and services from partner merchants in the most beneficial way.

2016 Guidance2

QIWI reiterates its guidance in respect of 2016 Adjusted Net Revenue and Adjusted Net Profit outlook:

  • Total Adjusted Net Revenue is expected to increase by 2% to 5% over 2015
  • Adjusted Net Profit is expected to increase by 5% to 10% over 2015

The overall macroeconomic conditions continue to adversely affect the purchasing power of Russian population as 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.

We have also noted negative trends in Money Remittance market due to shifting migration trends. We anticipate that downward trends and weaker demand for money remittance services can negatively affect our volumes and revenues in this category.

(1) Calculated using a ruble to U.S. dollar exchange rate of RUB 63.158 to U.S. $1.00, which was the official exchange rate quoted by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation as of September 30, 2016.
(2) Payment revenue primarily consists of the merchant and consumer fees charged for the payment transactions.
(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 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.
(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) Amortization of fair value adjustments primarily includes the effect of the acquisition of control in Contact and Rapida.
(8) The Forex loss on SPO funds as presented in the reconciliation of Net Profit to Adjusted Net Profit differs from the Foreign exchange loss and Foreign exchange gain 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 loss/(gain) on the US dollar amount, which we received at SPO.

___________

(1) Payment volumes and payment average net revenue yields presented for the respective period in 2015 differ from the data previously published, including as presented in our 20-F and our quarterly earnings releases, and reflect adjustments made to the methodology of payment volumes recognition and allocation between different market verticals in Contact and Rapida starting June 2015 as a result of our ongoing effort to bring Contact and Rapida methodology in line with QIWI’s processes and procedures (see also Note (4) below). The adjustments made reduce total volumes for the period starting June 2, 2015 to December 31, 2015 and January 1, 2016 to March 31, 2016 by approximately RUB 13.8 billion and RUB 6.5 billion, respectively. Besides, certain reallocation of volumes between different market verticals shall be reflected in future earnings releases.
(2) Calculated using a ruble to U.S. dollar exchange rate of RUB 63.158 to U.S. $1.00, which was the official exchange rate quoted by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation as of September 30, 2016.
(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 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 used in QIWI’s Russian operations.
(4) 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.
(5) Payment Adjusted Net Revenue is calculated as the difference between Payment Revenue and Cost of payment revenue (excluding D&A) plus compensation to employees and related taxes allocated to payment revenue. Payment Revenue primarily consists of merchant and consumer fees. Cost of payment revenue primarily consists of commission to agents.
(6) 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.
(7) The number of active kiosk and terminals for 3 months ended September 30, 2015 shown here differs from the financial statements for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and reflect adjustments made to include Contact and Rapida physical points of service.
(8) 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.
