Second Quarter 2018 Results

Adjusted and Segment Net Revenues: Total Adjusted Net Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 was RUB 4,510 million ($71.9 million), an increase of 54% compared with RUB 2,934 million in the prior year. The increase was mainly driven by Payment Services and SME Segments Net Revenue growth.

Payment Services Segment Net Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 was RUB 3,832 million ($61.1 million), an increase of 28% compared with RUB 2,993 million in the prior year.

PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue was RUB 3,362 million ($53.6 million), an increase of 36% compared with RUB 2,471 million in the prior year. PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue growth was predominantly driven by a volume growth in the E-commerce and Money Remittance market verticals as well as by an improvement in Payment Average Adjusted Net Revenue Yield.

PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue1, which is principally composed of revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments and interest revenue, revenue from overdrafts provided to agents, and advertising, was RUB 470 million ($7.5 million), a decrease of 10% compared with RUB 521 million in the prior year. PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue decrease in the second quarter was mostly due to the decrease of revenue from advertising and revenue from overdrafts provided to agents.

Fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018 were RUB 326 million ($5.2 million) compared with RUB 328 million for the corresponding period in the prior year. PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue excluding revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments decreased 25% compared with the same period in the prior year.

Payment Services Segment Net Revenue excluding revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments increased 32% compared with the same period in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA: For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, Adjusted EBITDA was RUB 1,392 million ($22.2 million), an increase of 1% compared with RUB 1,376 million in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA increase was driven by Total Adjusted Net Revenue growth offset by an increase in compensation to employees and related taxes (excluding effect of share based payments) to RUB 914 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 as compared to RUB 339 million for same period in the prior year resulting from a significant personnel increase in connection with the launch of the Tochka project as well as continues hiring for SOVEST to as well as by an increase of SG&A expense as follows. SG&A expense increased due to an increase in: (i) compensation to employees (excluding effect of share based payments) to RUB 777 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 as compared to RUB 417 million for same period in the prior year as a result of significant personnel increase in connection with the launch of the Tochka project as well as continues hiring for SOVEST; (ii) advertising, client acquisition and related expenses to RUB 578 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 as compared to RUB 335 million for same period in the prior year mostly related to SOVEST and Tochka projects; other administrative as well as advisory and audit expenses in the amount of RUB 226 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Total Adjusted Net Revenue) was 30.9% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 compared with 46.9% for the same period in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA excluding fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments was RUB 1,066 million ($17.0 million), an increase of 2% compared with RUB 1,048 million for the corresponding period in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin excluding fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments was 25.5% compared with 40.2% for the corresponding period in the prior year.

Adjusted and Segment Net Profit: For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, Adjusted Net Profit was RUB 872 million ($13.9 million), a decrease of 19% compared with RUB 1,082 million in the prior year. The decrease of Adjusted Net Profit was primarily driven by a net foreign exchange loss2 as compared to the net foreign exchange gain in the same period in the prior year as well as increase in income tax expenses. Adjusted Net Profit excluding fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments (net of tax) decreased 25% compared with the prior year.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, Payment Services Segment Net Profit was RUB 2,251 million ($35.9 million), an increase of 22% compared with RUB 1,843 million in the prior year driven by Payment Services Segment Net Revenue growth and slightly offset by a net foreign exchange loss3 discussed above.

The Consumer Financial Services Segment Net Loss in the second quarter 2018 was RUB 702 million ($11.2 million) as compared to a Net Loss of RUB 576 million in the same period of prior year resulting from the expansion of operations of the SOVEST project and associated costs mostly related to consumer acquisition.

The Small and Medium Enterprises Net Loss was RUB 263 million ($4.2 million) compared to nil in the prior year primarily driven by expenses incurred in connection with the development of the Tochka project.

Corporate and Other Category Net Loss was RUB 413 million ($6.6 million), an increase of 124% compared with the net loss of RUB 185 million in the prior year primarily driven by expenses incurred in connection with the acquisition and integration of assets of Rocketbank as well as several individually insignificant projects.

Payment Services Other Operating Data: For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, Payment Services Segment payment volume was RUB 262.8 billion ($4.2 billion), an increase of 21% compared with RUB 216.5 billion in the prior year. The increase in payment volume was driven by growth in E-commerce and Money Remittances market verticals resulting largely from the development of several products for merchants and projects targeting the self-employed market as well as secular growth in our core markets. Payment average adjusted net revenue yield was 1.28%, an increase of 14 bps compared with 1.14% in the prior year primarily due to the higher average net revenue yield in the E-commerce market vertical as well as shift of product mix towards higher yielding E-commerce volumes offset by lower yields in Money Remittances and Financial Services category.

Payment Services Segment Net Revenue Yield was 1.46%, an increase of 8 bps as compared with 1.38% in the prior year. Payment Services Segment Net Revenue Yield excluding the effect of fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments was 1.33%, an increase of 10 bps as compared with the same period in the prior year.

The number of active kiosks and terminals was 152,055 including Contact and Rapida physical points of service, a decrease of 2% compared with the prior year.
The number of active Qiwi Wallet accounts was 20.5 million as of June 30, 2018, an increase of 2.0 million, or 11%, as compared with 18.5 million in the second quarter 2017. The increase was driven mainly by development of consumer and merchant use cases in the core market verticals, network effects as well as increasing convenience and usability of our services.

Consumer Financial Services Other Operating Data: For the quarter ended June 30, 2018, Consumer Financial Services Segment payment volume was RUB 3.2 billion ($50.6 million).

Recent Developments

Acquisition of assets of Tochka and Rocketbank: In August 2017, we have executed a series of transactions to acquire the brands, software and hardware of Tochka, a digital banking service focused on offering a broad range of services to small and medium businesses and Rocketbank, a digital banking service offering debit cards and deposits to retail customers, from Otkritie Bank.

After the prolonged negotiations with the management of the Otkritie Bank on June 7 2018, QIWI, Otkritie Bank and Tochka management team have signed a partnership and agreed to establish a new entity to develop Tochka business together as a multi-banking platform. Consequently, on July 4 2018, JCS Tochka was established. We believe that the establishment and launch of JCS Tochka will be concluded in the next few months and the joint venture will consequently commence its business operations.

Further, in July 2018 we have reached the final agreements on the Rocketbank transaction. In accordance with these agreements, we have started the process of transferring Rocketbank customers to QIWI bank on July 25, 2018. We aim to conclude the transfer of Rocketbank customers, personnel and business processes to QIWI by the end of 2018 and expect to fully consolidate Rocketbank business as part of QIWI Group thereof.

Dividend: Throughout 2017, we have been heavily investing in our new project SOVEST and we anticipate that we will continue to bear significant costs related to the SOVEST project and certain other projects including Tochka and Rocketbank projects that we are developing now or plan to develop in the future. Thus, starting from the third quarter 2017 our Board of Directors have taken a decision to refrain from paying dividends. While long-term we remain committed to distributing all excess cash to our shareholders, the commencement of dividend distribution within the period of twelve months since the decision has been taken is unlikely.

2018 Guidance3

QIWI upgrades its Total Adjusted Net Revenue, Payment Services Segment Net Revenue and Payment Services Segment Net Profit guidance in respect of 2018 outlook:

  • Total Adjusted Net Revenue is expected to increase by 26% to 32% over 2017;
  • Payment Services Segment Net Revenue is expected to increase by 18% to 22% over 2017;
  • Payment Services Segment Net Profit is expected to increase by 12% to 17% over 2017;

While guidance in respect to Adjusted Net Profit is downgraded:

  • Adjusted Net Profit is expected to decline by 25% to 15% over 2017.

Given that during the first half of 2018 we have reached the final agreements with Otkritie Bank regarding the Tochka and Rocketbank transactions, we include in our guidance for 2018 the anticipated effect of these projects on our financial results for full year 2018.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Supplemental Financial Information

This release presents Total Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Profit and Adjusted Net Profit per share, which are non-IFRS financial measures. You should not consider these non-IFRS financial measures as substitutes for or superior to revenue, in the case of Total Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue and PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue; Net Profit, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA; and Adjusted Net Profit, or earnings per share, in the case of Adjusted Net Profit per share, each prepared in accordance with IFRS. Furthermore, because these non-IFRS financial measures are not determined in accordance with IFRS, they are susceptible to varying calculations and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other companies. QIWI encourages investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. For more information regarding Total Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Profit, and Adjusted Net Profit per share, including a quantitative reconciliation of Total Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Profit to the most directly comparable IFRS financial performance measure, which is revenue in the case of Total Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue and PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue and Net Profit in the case of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Profit, see Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Operating Results in this earnings release.
