LIMASSOL, CYPRUS — 24 August 2022.
TCS Group Holding PLC (LI: TCS, MOEX: TCSG) («Tinkoff», «We», the «Group», the «Company»), a leading provider of online financial and
lifestyle services via its Tinkoff ecosystem, today announces key performance metrics and trading update for the three months and six months ended
30 June 2022.
The entire Tinkoff team continues to work hard while keeping our customers' needs at the center of everything we do.
We closely watch any changes in the external environment and react appropriately, supported by our vast sector expertise and our
ability to quickly adapt to any new challenges and opportunities. Our total assets and total liabilities have remained stable with
up to 1% growth in 1H’22 relative to the beginning of the year, while the company continued to be profitable
in both quarters of 2022, albeit half-yearly net profit reached its lowest level over the last five years. The Group
continues to maintain a significant liquidity cushion and ample capital buffers (almost twice above required minimums), which will enable
it to adapt further to the changing environment in 2022.

In 2Q’22, the Group’s total revenue grew materially showing strong double-digit percentage growth year-on-year,
supported by continuous customer base expansion.
Interest income increased by 31% year-on-year to RUB 52.2 bn in 2Q’22 (2Q’21: RUB 39.9 bn), driven by the
continued growth of our loan portfolio mainly in 2H’21, increase of the customer base and expansion of the credit product range.
Gross loan interest yield decreased slightly year-on-year following trend of the previous years. The interest yield on the
Group’s securities portfolio slightly increased due to higher rates in bond and money markets.
In 2Q’22, interest expense rose by 245% year-on-year to RUB 21.5 bn (2Q’21: RUB 6.2 bn), driven
by a marked increase in our cost of borrowing, owing to the monetary policy environment.
Fee and commission income increased by 64% year-on-year in 2Q’22 to RUB 32.2 bn (2Q’21: RUB 19.6 bn), supported
mainly by the continued growth of our retail and SME banking businesses. At the same time, fee and commission expense declined
by 5% year-on-year in 2Q’22 to RUB 8.7 bn (2Q’21: RUB 9.1 bn) due to lower payment systems costs.
In 2Q’22, net interest margin experienced a single-digit decline in percentage points terms year-on-year,
primarily driven by rising funding costs.
Cost of risk increased materially year-on-year in 1H’22 owing to conservative macro-related provisioning,
with the relative size of the increase comparable to the increase experienced in 1H’20.
Our non-credit business lines continue to deliver an increasing share of our revenue and bottom line thanks
to growth of the customer base, our widened range of product offerings and continued monetisation efforts.
oup remains profitable. In 1H’22, net profit decreased substantially year-on-year, implying single digit ROE (return
on equity), primarily impacted by growth in funding costs and conservative provisioning.
In 2Q’22, the Group maintained a healthy balance sheet with total assets slightly growing compared to the end of 2021.
In 1H’22, the net loan book decreased by 4% YTD to RUB 584 bn (31 Dec’21: RUB 606 bn). NPL ratio increased by low single
digit percentage points compared to the end of 2021.
The Group’s customer accounts increased by 4% YTD to RUB 983 bn (31 Dec’21: RUB 946 bn).
Tinkoff’s total equity grew by 9% compared to the end of 2021. In 1H’22, all statutory capital ratios significantly
improved. Group’s Basel III CET1 ratio remained strong, being stable year-on-year.
The Group continues to honor its obligations to bondholders and aims to make the coupon payments under its two outstanding Eurobonds
in due course in September subject to regulatory environment. Given current limitations in the operation of the capital
markets infrastructure, the Group will not be able to execute a call option for its 9.25% perpetual Eurobond in September 2022.
To ensure coupon delivery to all bondholders, settlement to Russian residents will be made in Rubles via local settlement
