On February 17, 2017 Otkritie Holding disposed 1,907,305 ADSs representing Class B ordinary shares pursuant to an over-the-counter equity repurchase transaction.

On May 25, Otkritie Holding terminated over-the-counter equity repurchase transaction and entered into new over-the-counter equity repurchase transactions, which resulted in an acquisition by Otkritie Holding of 472,996 ADSs representing Class B ordinary shares.
