QIWI plc (“QIWI” or the “Company”) hereby furnishes to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, the following information concerning the matters voted upon at the Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) of the Company held on March 6, 2018.

The matters to be voted upon were notified to the shareholders of record on the record date and to all registered holders of QIWI’s American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) in accordance with the Deposit Agreement.

Each Class A share carries ten votes and each Class B share carries one vote.

The following is a brief description of the matters voted upon at the EGM of the Company held on March 6, 2018:

 

    Approval of the disapplication of shareholders pre-emption rights in relation to a maximum of 8,500,000 class B shares for the purpose of issuance and allotment of new shares under the employee incentive programs.
