Corporate and Other (CO)   762    1,049    37.7%   1,261    1,916    51.9%   12.1    22.0 

 

Total Net Revenue decreased by 9.9% YoY to RUB 9,194 million ($105.6 million) driven by high base and adverse mix effects in operations of Payment Services (PS) segment partially offset by Corporate and Other (CO) segment results, as well as the strong performance of Flocktory and the consolidated results of the RealWeb business acquired by the Company in December 20228 and accounted for in the Digital Marketing (DM) segment.

 

Payment Services

 

PS Net Revenue decreased by 22.6% YoY to RUB 7,215 million ($82.9 million).

 

PS Payment Net Revenue was 33.5% lower YoY and amounted to RUB 5,042 million ($57.9 million) driven by PS Payment Net Revenue Yield decrease from 1.52% to 1.00% and generally stable PS Payment Volume despite high base of last year.

 

PS Payment Net Revenue Yield was 52 bps lower YoY due to the adverse mix effect resulting from lower share of operations with higher margins, such as currency conversion.

 

PS Payment Volume was 1% higher YoY and reached RUB 504.6 billion driven by the onboarding of new merchants and aggregators and the growing payment volume from our product offering for digital entertainment and self-employed.

 

PS Other Net Revenue primarily comprises interest income, revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments, cash and settlement services and related conversion income, income from intercompany and third-party funding, and advertising fees. In 2Q 2023 PS Other Net Revenue increased by 25.0% YoY to RUB 2,173 million ($25.0 million) as a result of higher net revenue derived from cash and settlement services partially offset by lower interest income due to lower interest rates.

 

Digital Marketing (DM)

 

DM Net Revenue increased by 627.6% YoY to RUB 930 million ($10.7 million) driven by the RealWeb acquisition in December 2022 and the increase of the number of Flocktory clients and traffic-providers.

ROWI Net Revenue decreased by 7.2% YoY to RUB 658 million ($7.6 million) mainly due to a decline of net portfolio yield compared to 2Q2022:

Operating expenses increased by 23.1% YoY to RUB 4,452 million ($51.2 million) mainly driven by the increase of expenses to secure growth of the business and the acquisition of RealWeb in December 2022 partially offset by credit loss reversal. Operating expenses as a percentage of Total Net Revenue deteriorated by 13.0 ppts to 48.4% mainly due to the high base of last year for the PS segment and the consolidation of the new RealWeb business (with historically higher operating expenses to Net Revenue ratio), partially offset by a positive credit loss dynamic.

 

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 53.2% YoY to RUB 1,184 million ($13.6 million) and as a percentage of Total Net Revenue by 5.3 ppt YoY to 12.9% mainly driven by the high base effect of last year and the acquisition of RealWeb.

 

Personnel expenses surged by 51.5% YoY to RUB 3,034 million ($34.9 million) driven by the hiring of new staff for development of new products and strong financial performance resulting in higher bonuses to employees in PS segment as well as the consolidation of the new RealWeb business. Personnel expenses as a percentage of Total Net Revenue increased by 13.4 ppts to 33.0% mainly driven by the high base effect of last year and acquisition of RealWeb.

 

Depreciation, amortization and impairment stood at RUB 315 million ($3.6 million) or 3.4% as percent of Total Net Revenue – 0.3 ppt higher YoY due to the high base effect of last year.

 

 

 

 

Credit loss reversal amounted to RUB 81 million ($0.9 million) compared to a credit loss of RUB 520 million in 2Q 2022 due to release of allowance for ECL on restricted cash accounts partially offset by an increase of provisions due to the growth of bank guarantees portfolio.

 

Other non-operating income increased to RUB 1,029 million ($11.8 million) compared to RUB 2,347 million of loss last year primarily due to (i) the foreign exchange gain resulting from the depreciation of the Russian ruble vs. USD, AED and Euro in 2Q 2023, and (ii) a decrease in fair value of option to invest in an associate.

 

Income tax expense

 

Income tax expense decreased by 33.4% YoY to RUB 954 million ($11.0 million) as a substantial part of the profit relates to exchange gain for 2Q 2023 which is tax neutral within the Group perimeter. As a result, the effective tax rate decreased from 33.8% in 2Q 2022 to 16.5% in 2Q 2023.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 27.5% YoY to RUB 5,057 million ($58.1 million) mainly due to (i) the high base effect of last year resulting in Total Net Revenue decline by 9.9% YoY, and (ii) an increase of operating expenses to secure growth of the business, which were (iii) partially offset by the release of allowance for ECL on restricted cash accounts. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased by 13.3 ppts YoY to 55.0% driven by the factors described above and the consolidation of the new RealWeb business operating with lower margin than the PS segment.

 

Adjusted Net Profit increased by 76.6% YoY to RUB 5,234 million ($60.0 million). Adjusted Net Profit margin increased by 27.9 ppts YoY to 56.9% primarily driven by the foreign exchange gain partially offset by the consolidation of the RealWeb business operating with a lower margin than the PS segment.

 

PS Adjusted Net Profit decreased by 47.5% YoY to RUB 2,926 million ($33.6 million) mainly due to (i) the high base effect of last year resulting in PS Net Revenue decline by 22.6% YoY, and (ii) an increase of operating expenses to secure growth of the business. As a result, PS Adjusted Net Profit margin deteriorated by 19.2 ppts to 40.6% mainly due to a combination of (i) negative operating leverage effect, (ii) increased personnel expenses (described earlier), and (iii) higher expenses related to multi-bank platform services in QIWI Bank.

 

Digital Marketing (DM) Adjusted Net Profit for 2Q 2023 increased to RUB 213 million ($2.4 million) due to Flocktory Net Revenue growth and the consolidation of new RealWeb business. DM Adjusted Net Profit margin stood at 22.9%.

 

 

 

 

CO Adjusted Net Profit increased to RUB 2,095 million ($24.1 million) compared to CO Net loss of RUB 2,552 million driven by:

 

CO Net Profit of RUB 2,023 million ($23.2 million) resulting primarily from the CO Net Revenue YoY growth by 37.7% described above, the foreign exchange gain, and the release of allowance for ECL on restricted cash accounts.

ROWI Net Profit of RUB 72 million ($0.8 million) as a result of its Net Revenue decline by 7.2% YoY and an increase of provisions related to ROWI bank guarantees portfolio.

 

Update on the CBR restrictions

 

On July 25, 2023, during a routine audit of Qiwi Bank, the CBR issued an order to introduce temporary and partial limitations for individuals to withdraw funds from QIWI wallets to bank accounts or make cash withdrawals. As of the date of this press release, Qiwi Bank has already fixed the identified deficiencies and provided results to the regulator. We are working closely with the CBR to lift the limitations fully or at least partially.

 

For indicative purposes only, the Company performed a worst-case stress test based on 1H 2023 actual results and estimated that if the full scope of restrictions were in place since the beginning of 1H 2023, it would have affected (i) Payment Volume by up to 20%, (ii) Group Net Revenue by up to 25%, and (iii) Group Adjusted Net Profit by up to 40%. The stress test did not include any cost optimization measures or gradual restrictions relief. The Company also aims to further develop its services and launch new products, in order to mitigate the negative implications of the imposed restrictions on the financial results of the Company.

 

The Company remains financially stable and profitable despite the imposed restrictions. Qiwi Bank has substantial liquidity reserves and maintains the required capital adequacy ratios.

 

Dividends

 

Due to the lingering stock market infrastructure issues, the Company does not see the opportunity to arrange the distribution of dividends or repurchase shares with the equal treatment of all existing shareholders. Therefore, the Board decided to keep the distribution of dividends under review until changes of the sanction regime or other developments enable the Company to distribute dividends to all of its shareholders.

 

Update on corporate restructuring

 

Since the beginning of the Ukrainian conflict, the geopolitical situation has been deteriorating, sanctions expanded and extended, and the world stock market infrastructure continued to isolate from Russia. The Company has been searching for a viable solution to address the many shareholders’ concerns, as well as to define an optimal way for further development.

 

The Company has been facing extraordinary challenges to the operations of the business and needs to navigate in a rapidly changing business environment. Under current circumstances, QIWI’s intentions to develop its business within the Russian perimeter and overseas require different strategies. Management and the Board of Directors of QIWI PLC have concluded that the best option to preserve liquidity and shareholder value would be to restructure its business and to exit the Russian market.

 

The Company has completed internal restructuring and consolidated practically all Russian assets under JSC QIWI. The Company also completed a valuation of the Russian assets. The valuation report has been prepared by an independent appraiser and received the required approval by a self-regulatory organization.

 

Further, the Board established a Special Committee comprised of Independent Directors of the Company to review available divestment options. Currently, the Special Committee and management, assisted by reputable advisors, are conducting a disciplined process intended to ensure the best outcome for the Company and the different groups of shareholders using three major criteria: 1) liquidity, 2) ability to receive cash, and 3) ability to exercise voting rights.

 

 

 

 

The Company will duly inform the market on further developments as regards the restructuring process.

We welcome all our stakeholders to send any questions related to our business using the contact details available on our investor’s website. We remain available for individual incoming call requests.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Supplemental Financial Information

 

This release presents Total Net Revenue, Payment Services (PS) Net Revenue, PS Payment Net Revenue, PS Other Net Revenue, Digital Marketing (DM) Net Revenue, Corporate and Other (CO) Net Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Profit, PS Adjusted Net Profit, DM Adjusted Net Profit, CO Adjusted Net Profit, and Adjusted Net Profit per share, which are non-IFRS financial measures. You should not consider these non-IFRS financial measures as substitutes for or superior to revenue, in the case of Total Net Revenue, PS Net Revenue, PS Payment Net Revenue, PS Other Net Revenue, DM Net Revenue, CO Net Revenue; Net Profit, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Profit, PS Adjusted Net Profit, DM Adjusted Net Profit, CO Adjusted Net Profit, and earnings per share, in the case of Adjusted Net Profit per share, each prepared in accordance with IFRS.

 

Furthermore, because these non-IFRS financial measures are not determined in accordance with IFRS, they are susceptible to varying calculations and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other companies. QIWI encourages investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. For more information regarding Total Net Revenue, PS Net Revenue, PS Payment Net Revenue, PS Other Net Revenue, DM Net Revenue, CO Net Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Profit and Adjusted Net Profit per share, including a quantitative reconciliation of Total Net Revenue and its breakdown by segments, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Profit to the most directly comparable IFRS financial performance measures, which is revenue in the case of Total Net Revenue, PS Payment Net Revenue and PS Other Net Revenue, and Net Profit in the case of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Profit, see Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Operating Results in this earnings release.

 

We define non-IFRS financial measures as follows:

 

“Total Net Revenue” is calculated by subtracting cost of revenue from revenue.

“Adjusted EBITDA” as Net profit plus/(less): (1) depreciation and amortization, (2) other expenses/(income), (3) foreign exchange loss/(gain), (4) share of loss/(gain) of associates and joint ventures, (5) interest expenses/ (income), (6) income tax expenses, (7) share-based payment expenses, (8) impairment of non-current assets, (9) loss/(gain) on disposal of subsidiary.

“Adjusted Net profit” as Net profit plus/(less): (1) fair value adjustments recorded on business combinations and their amortization, (2) impairment of non-current assets, (3) share-based payment expenses, (4) loss/(gain) on disposal of subsidiary, (5) effect of taxation of the above items.

“Adjusted EBITDA Margin” as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Total Net Revenue.

“Adjusted Net profit Margin” as Adjusted Net profit divided by Total Net Revenue.

 

Total Net Revenue is a key measure used by management to observe our operational profitability since it reflects our portion of the revenue net of fees that we pass through, primarily to our agents and other reload channels providers. In addition, under IFRS, most types of fees are presented on a gross basis whereas certain types of fees are presented on a net basis. Therefore, in order to analyze our two sources of payment processing fees on a comparative basis, management reviews Total Net Revenue.

 

We provide a breakdown of Total Net Revenue by segments - PS Net Revenue, including PS Payment Net Revenue and PS Other Net Revenue, DM Net Revenue, CO Net Revenue. We define the above measures as follows:

 

PS Payment Net Revenue is the Net Revenue comprising the merchant and consumer fees collected for the payment transactions.

PS Other Net Revenue primarily comprises revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments, interest revenue, cash and settlement services and related conversion income, fees for intercompany and third-party funding, and advertising fees.

DM Net Revenue includes revenue generated with services provided for context and media advertising management services, including platform services under subscription, social network presence, programmatic, CPA and mobile marketing type of services. The segment includes results of full-cycle digital marketing service provider RealWeb and Flocktory services in marketing automation and advertising technologies.

CO Net Revenue comprises from results of ROWI business, Tochka project (before 2Q2022) and Corporate and Other projects, including interest income.

 

 

 

 

Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by management as a supplemental performance measure that facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period and company to company by backing out potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expenses, net), changes in foreign exchange rates that impact financial assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than our functional currency (affecting foreign exchange (loss)/gain, net), tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates), the age and book depreciation of fixed assets (affecting relative depreciation expense), non-cash charges (affecting share-based payments expenses and impairment of non-current assets), and certain one-time income and expenses (affecting other income, offering and related expenses, etc.). Adjusted EBITDA also excludes other expenses, share in losses of associates and impairment of investment in associates because we believe it is helpful to view the performance of our business excluding the impact of entities that we do not control, and because our share of the net income (loss) of associates and other expenses includes items that have been excluded from Adjusted EBITDA (such as finance expenses, net, income tax, and depreciation and amortization). Because Adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of operating performance on a more consistent basis, we also use Adjusted EBITDA in measuring our performance relative to that of our competitors.

 

Adjusted Net Profit is a key measure used by management to observe the operational profitability of the company. We believe Adjusted Net Profit is useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because it measures a company’s operating performance without the effect of non-recurring items or items that are not core to our operations. For example, loss on disposals of subsidiaries and the effects of deferred taxation on excluded items do not represent the core operations of the business, and fair value adjustments recorded on business combinations and their amortization, impairment of non-current assets and share-based payments expenses do not have a substantial cash effect. Nevertheless, such gains and losses can affect our financial performance.

 

In order to reflect the operational profitability of each segment, we provide a following breakdown of Adjusted Net Profit: Payment Services Adjusted Net Profit, Digital Marketing Adjusted Net Profit, Corporate and Other Adjusted Net Profit.

 

Payment Services segment payment volume provides a measure of the overall size and growth of the business, and increasing our payment volumes is essential to growing our profitability.

 

Payment Services segment net revenue yield. We calculate Payment Services segment net revenue yield by dividing Payment Services segment net revenue by Payment Services segment payment volume. Payment Services segment net revenue yield provides a measure of our ability to generate net revenue per unit of volume we process.

Results of Review of Interim Financial Information

 

We have reviewed the interim condensed consolidated statement of financial position of QIWI plc and subsidiaries (the “Group”) as of June 30, 2023, the related interim condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, interim condensed consolidated statements of cash flows and changes in equity for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “interim condensed consolidated financial information”). Based on our reviews, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the interim condensed consolidated financial information for it to be in conformity with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting.

 

We have previously audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB), the consolidated statement of financial position of the Group as of December 31, 2022, the related consolidated statements of comprehensive income, cash flows and changes in equity for the year then ended, and the related notes (not presented herein); and in our report dated March 31, 2023, we expressed an unqualified audit opinion on those consolidated financial statements. In our opinion, the information set forth in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of financial position as of December 31, 2022, is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the consolidated statement of financial position from which it has been derived.

 

Basis for Review Results

 

This interim condensed consolidated financial information is the responsibility of the Group’s management. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Group in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our reviews in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. A review of interim consolidated condensed financial information consists principally of applying analytical procedures and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB, the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.
