Explanatory Note:

This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (the “Amendment”) is filed by Public Joint Stock Company “Bank Otkritie Financial Corporation” (“Bank Otkritie”) to amend the Schedule 13D related to the Class B ordinary shares (“Class B Shares”) of QIWI plc (“QIWI”) previously filed by Bank Otkritie with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 19, 2017 (as so amended, the “Schedule 13D”). This Amendment is filed to disclose the items contained herein.

Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

Bank Otkritie expects to enter into repurchase, buy and sell back and other similar transactions with third parties from time to time covering QIWI ADSs it beneficially owns, and also may loan, pledge, hypothecate or sell QIWI ADSs to third parties. Bank Otkritie intends to continually review its investment in QIWI on the basis of various factors, including QIWI’s business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects, general economic and industry conditions, the securities markets in general and those for QIWI’s securities in general, as well as other developments and other investment opportunities.  Based upon such review, Bank Otkritie may, at any time, acquire additional Class B Shares of QIWI in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, with or without prior notice.  In addition, Bank Otkritie may engage in discussions with management, the board of directors or shareholders of QIWI, including discussions regarding QIWI’s strategic direction, corporate governance, named executive officer compensation, board of directors representation, extraordinary corporate transactions or other material changes to QIWI’s business or corporate structure.  Bank Otkritie reserves its right, based on all relevant factors and subject to applicable law, at any time to review or reconsider its position, change its purpose, take other actions or formulate and implement plans or proposals with respect to any of the foregoing.

According to Order No. OD-2469 dated August 29, 2017, the Bank of Russia (the Central Bank of the Russian Federation) (the “Bank of Russia”) appointed from August 30, 2017 a provisional administration to manage Bank Otkritie to improve the financial stability of the Bank (the “Stability Measures”). The executive bodies of Bank Otkritie were replaced with a provisional administration composed of the Bank of Russia’s officers, Banking Sector Consolidation Fund Management Company’s and the State Corporation Deposit Insurance Agency’s employees (the “Provisional Administration”).

On December 12, 2017, in connection with the Stability Measures, the Bank of Russia acquired control of over 99.9% of the outstanding ordinary shares of Bank Otkritie. According to Order No. OD-3603 dated December 21, 2017, the Bank of Russia discharged the Provisional Administration. On December 21, 2017, the existing members of the Board of Directors of Bank Otkritie were replaced with new members elected by Bank Otkritie’s shareholders. The Board of Directors of Bank Otkritie then appointed a new Management Board of Bank Otkritie.

(a)
See Exhibit A hereto, which is incorporated herein by reference.

 
(b)
See Exhibit A hereto, which is incorporated herein by reference.

 
(c)
On December 19, 2017, Bank Otkritie purchased a total of 992,058 QIWI ADSs on the Moscow Exchange at a price of 823 roubles per QIWI ADS.
 
    On December 20, 2017, Bank Otkritie acquired 9,652,297 QIWI ADSs at a price of 799.53 roubles pursuant to an over-the-counter equity repurchase transaction.

Not applicable.
