On August 1 and August 2, 2017, Bank Otkritie purchased 5,500,000 QIWI ADSs in three privately negotiated transactions. On August 25 and August 29, 2017, Bank Otkritie acquired 5,282,378 QIWI ADSs from Otkritie Holding JSC (“Otkritie Holding”) as a part of an internal transfer.

Item 2.
Identity and background

This statement is filed by Bank Otkritie, a company incorporated under the laws of the Russian Federation, whose principle business is banking and business address and registered address are at 2/4 Letnikovskaya street, 115114, Moscow, Russia.

To the knowledge of Bank Otkritie, the name, business address, citizenship, and principal occupation or employment of (i) each director and executive officer of Bank Otkritie, (ii) each person controlling such corporation and (iii) each executive officer and director of any corporation or other person ultimately in control of such corporation, are set forth in Schedule A and incorporated herein by reference.

During the past five years, Bank Otkritie has not, nor, to the knowledge of  Bank Otkritie, have any of the persons listed on Schedule A hereto (i) been convicted in any criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) was a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

Item 3.
Source and Amount of Funds or Other

The consideration paid for the QIWI ADSs acquired by Bank Otkritie from Otkritie Holding was obtained from Bank Otkritie’s cash on hand.

Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.

On August 1 and August 2, 2017, Bank Otkritie purchased 5,500,000 QIWI ADSs in three privately negotiated transactions. On August 4, 2017 Bank Otkritie reported its acquisition of QIWI ADSs in these transactions in a joint 13D/A filing with Otkritie Holding JSC with whom it shared voting and dispositive power over the QIWI ADSs.

According to the 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 Bank of Russia’s officers, Banking Sector Consolidation Fund Management Company’s and the State Corporation Deposit Insurance Agency’s employees. Following the Stability Measures, while Otkritie Holding JSC owns (directly and indirectly) more than 50% of the outstanding shares of Bank Otkritie, Bank Otkritie’s provisional administration has sole voting and dispositive power over all QIWI ADSs held by Bank Otkritie and Otkritie Holding does not beneficially own or have control over QIWI ADSs held by Bank Otkritie.

The acquisition of beneficial ownership of the QIWI ADSs reported in this Schedule 13D by Bank Otkritie was the result of Bank Otkritie’s acquisition of 5,282,378 QIWI ADSs from Otkritie Holding as part of an internal restructuring.
