Tinkoff announces start of trading of its Global Depositary Receipts on Moscow Exchange
 

Limassol, Cyprus - 28 October 2019. TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS LI) ("Tinkoff", the "Company"), Russia's leading provider of online financial and lifestyle services via its Tinkoff ecosystem, announces the start of trading of its Global Depositary Receipts ("GDRs", ticker: TCSG) on Moscow Exchange today.

 

Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Tinkoff Oliver Hughes and Moscow Exchange Chairman of the Supervisory Board Oleg Viyugin participated in an official ceremony at Moscow Exchange to mark the start of trading of Tinkoff's GDRs.

 

Oleg Tinkov, the Founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tinkoff, commented: "This listing of Tinkoff GDRs on Moscow Exchange is a huge milestone for our company. For several years now, Tinkoff has been a major driving force in the development of Russia's retail investor market, contributing significantly to its explosive growth. We are thrilled that, starting today, investors can now also trade Tinkoff GDRs on Moscow Exchange."

 

Oleg Vyugin added: "Tinkoff's listing on Moscow Exchange is a significant event for the Russian stock market. Institutional and retail investors will be able to buy GDRs in one of Russia's most innovative companies within the domestic legal framework and on a trading platform they are familiar with. We are seeing a trend for Russian companies listed abroad to come to Moscow Exchange and thus expand their investor base, increase the liquidity of their shares and support growth of their market capitalisation. Moscow Exchange is the primary platform for pricing Russian assets, and is equally convenient for international and Russian investment funds, as well as more than three million Russian individual investors. I wish Tinkoff every success on the Russian stock market."

 

Oliver Hughes said: "Tinkoff has transformed the way that Russians think about banking and secured its place as Russia's fintech leader. Tinkoff is also a key driver behind a rapid inflow of retail investors on to the Russian stock market. Tinkoff Investments app accounts for over 30% of retail investment accounts registered on the Moscow Exchange. Our listing on Moscow Exchange should expand the Company's investor base to include Russian investors who are not present in London and will support liquidity. We are excited to welcome our new investors via Moscow Exchange and we are confident that this move will support the liquidity and market capitalisation growth of Tinkoff going forward."

 

Earlier, the Company announced that Moscow Exchange had approved the listing of the Company's Global Depositary Receipts (ISIN US87238U2033). The Company's GDRs have been included in the Level 1 List.

 

Renaissance Capital has acted as the Company's adviser in connection with the secondary listing of global depositary receipts on Moscow Exchange.
