I am glad to say that the performance of our payment services business continues to be driven predominantly by the expansion and enhancement of the product proposition we offer to our users, merchants and partners including solutions for digital entertainment merchants, self-employed and sharing economy partners. Our growth is simultaneously underpinned by the secular trends in our key markets. Our results clearly emphasize the value and relevance of the payment ecosystem we have developed so far and aim to develop further,” said Sergey Solonin, QIWI’s chief executive officer. “As we continue to benefit from the strong performance and substantial cash flows generated by the Payment Services segment, which remains a core part of our business, we proceed with pursuing our strategy, building up our payment and financial services ecosystem and investing in the development of the new products and projects. We see many opportunities both in the payment space and in the adjacent markets and I believe we are well positioned to continue strengthening our ecosystem and increasing the life cycle of our clients with an ultimate goal of securing the long-term growth prospects of our Company.”

Second Quarter 2019 Results

Adjusted and Segment Net Revenues: Total Adjusted Net Revenue (Total Segment Net Revenue) for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was RUB 5,563 million ($88.2 million), an increase of 23% compared with RUB 4,510 million in the prior year. The increase was mainly driven by Payment Services and CFS Segments Net Revenue growth, which was partially offset by the decline in the SME Segment Net Revenue as well as negative Net Revenue contribution of Rocketbank Segment.

Payment Services Segment Net Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was RUB 5,158 million ($81.8 million), an increase of 35% compared with RUB 3,832 million in the prior year.

PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue was RUB 4,412 million ($70.0 million), an increase of 31% compared with RUB 3,362 million in the prior year. PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue growth was predominantly driven by a volume growth in the E-commerce, Financial Services and Money Remittance market verticals partially offset by the decline of the Payment Average Adjusted Net Revenue Yield.

PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue, which is principally composed of revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments, interest revenue, revenue from overdrafts provided to agents, and advertising, was RUB 746 million ($11.8 million), an increase of 59% compared with RUB 470 million in the prior year. Fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 were RUB 471 million ($7.5 million) compared with RUB 326 million for the corresponding period in the prior year, the increase was driven primarily by growth of payment volume and a number of users in the payment services business. PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue excluding revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments increased 91% compared with the same period in the prior year to RUB 275 million predominantly as a result of growth of interest revenue.

Small and Medium Enterprises Segment Net Revenue which is composed of revenue from cash and settlement services related to the operations of the Tochka project for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was RUB 185 million ($2.9 million) compared with RUB 597 million in the second quarter of the prior year. Segment Net Revenue dynamics were primarily due to the transfer of Tochka multi-bank project to JSC Tochka starting from February 1, 2019. As a result of this transition we no longer recognize a certain portion of Tochka project revenues associated with the information and technology service agreements with Otkritie Bank.

Adjusted EBITDA: For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Adjusted EBITDA was RUB 2,639 million ($41.8 million), an increase of 90% compared with RUB 1,392 million in the prior year. The adjusted EBITDA increase was driven by Total Adjusted Net Revenue growth as well as a decline in payroll and related taxes (related to the cost of revenue) (excluding effect of share based payments) to RUB 674 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 as compared to RUB 914 million for same period in the prior year and advertising, client acquisition and related expenses driven mostly by the transfer of Tochka multi-bank project. The growth was partially offset by an increase of compensation to employees and related taxes (related to the SG&A expenses)(excluding effect of share-based payments) to RUB 869 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 as compared to RUB 777 million for same period in the prior year resulting from a personnel expense growth in payment services segment and corporate and other category as well as transfer of Rocketbank personnel to QIWI and an increase of other expenses also related the transfer and operations of Tochka multi-bank project. Adjusted EBITDA margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Total Adjusted Net Revenue) was 47.4% for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 compared with 30.9% for the same period in the prior year.

Adjusted and Segment Net Profit: For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Adjusted Net Profit (Total Segment Net Profit) was RUB 1,965 million ($31.2 million), an increase of 125% compared with RUB 872 million in the prior year. The growth of Adjusted Net Profit was primarily driven by the same factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA as well as by a significantly smaller net foreign exchange loss1 as compared to the same period in the prior year.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Payment Services Segment Net Profit was RUB 3,206 million ($50.8 million), an increase of 42% compared with RUB 2,250 million in the prior year driven by Payment Services Segment Net Revenue growth. Certain expenses that were postponed this quarter will be incurred in the second half of the year.

The Consumer Financial Services Segment Net Loss for the second quarter 2019 was RUB 435 million ($6.9 million) as compared to a Net Loss of RUB 702 million for the same period of the prior year resulting from Segment Net Revenue growth driven by the improving monetization and expansion of the operations of the SOVEST project as well as decrease in payroll and related taxes (excluding effect of share based payments) and advertising, client acquisition and related expenses.

The Small and Medium Enterprises Net Profit was RUB 16 million ($0.3 million) as compared to a Net Loss of RUB 263 million in the prior year. The significant reduction of net loss was primarily driven by the development and scaling of the Tochka business.

Rocketbank Segment Net Loss was RUB 511 million ($8.1 million), an increase of 425% compared with the net loss of RUB 97 million in the prior year primarily driven by expenses incurred in connection with the transfer and roll out of the operations of Rocketbank in QIWI.

Payment Services Other Operating Data: For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Payment Services Segment payment volume was RUB 370.8 billion ($5.9 billion), an increase of 41% compared with RUB 262.8 billion in the prior year. The increase in payment volume was driven by growth in E-commerce, Financial Services and Money Remittances market verticals resulting largely from the development of certain payment solutions for merchants including betting merchants, new contracts and new projects targeting the self-employed market as well as secular growth in some of our key categories. Payment Average Adjusted Net Revenue Yield  was 1.19%, a decrease of 9 bps compared with 1.28% in the prior year primarily driven by a decrease of average net revenue yields across key market verticals including E-commerce and Financial Services driven by the diversification of the suite of services offered to merchants and partners partially offset by the increase in Money Remittance average net revenue yield.

Payment Services Segment Net Revenue Yield was 1.39%, a decrease of 7 bps as compared with 1.46% in the prior year. Payment Services Segment Net Revenue Yield excluding the effect of fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments was 1.26%, a decrease of 7 bps as compared with 1.33% in the prior year.

Consumer Financial Services Other Operating Data: For the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Consumer Financial Services Segment payment volume was RUB 5.8 billion ($0.1 billion). CFS payment volume increased by 82% as compared to the RUB 3.2 billion for the second quarter of 2018, while CFS Segment Net Revenue Yield increased to 4.88% driven primarily by the introduction of the customer paid value added options.

Recent Developments

Rocketbank Strategy Update: In August 2017, we have executed a series of transactions to acquire the brands, software and hardware of Tochka and Rocketbank from Otkritie Bank. In July 2018, QIWI finalized the acquisition of the Rocketbank business and, by the end of 2018, had transferred Rocketbank customers, personnel and business processes to QIWI. Further to this acquisition, QIWI began developing a new strategy for Rocketbank. Throughout the first half of 2019, QIWI reviewed a number of strategic opportunities for the development of the Rocketbank business as either a part of the broader QIWI ecosystem or as a standalone project. A final strategic plan for Rocketbank was presented to and reviewed by the Board of Directors of QIWI during its meeting in August 2019. Having duly considered the proposed strategy and required financing, the Board of the Directors of the Company concluded that Rocketbank’s business plan has an investment profile that isn’t compatible with QIWI’s risk appetite and that the business has insufficient potential synergies with the core business of the Company. As a result, the Board of Directors has determined and instructed the management of the Company to explore opportunities of a partial or complete sale of Rocketbank.

Dividend: Considering our expectations about the performance of the Group as well as our anticipated level of investments in 2019 and aiming to provide more transparency and predictability in respect of our dividend distribution practices, the Board of Directors approved a target dividend payout ratio for 2019. In accordance with the decision of the Board of Directors, the Company aims to distribute between 65% to 85% of its adjusted net profit for 2019 starting from the first quarter 2019.

Following the determination of the second quarter 2019 financial results, our Board of Directors approved a dividend of USD 28 cents per share. The dividend record date is August 30, 2019, and the Company intends to pay the dividend on September 3, 2019. The holders of ADSs will receive the dividend shortly thereafter.

The Board of Directors reserves the right to distribute the dividends on a quarterly basis, as it deems necessary so that the total annual payout is in accordance with the target range provided, though the payout ratios for each of the quarters may vary and be outside of this range. It remains the long-term intention of the Company to distribute all excess cash to the shareholders.

2019 Guidance2

QIWI upgrades its Total Adjusted Net Revenue, Payment Services Segment Net Revenue and Payment Services Segment Net Profit guidance in respect of 2019 outlook:

  • Total Adjusted Net Revenue is expected to increase by 11% to 16% over 2018;
  • Payment Services Segment Net Revenue is expected to increase by 23% to 27% over 2018;
  • Payment Services Segment Net Profit is expected to increase by 25% to 29% over 2018.

QIWI reiterates its Adjusted Net Profit guidance in respect of 2019 outlook:

  • Adjusted Net Profit is expected to increase by 40% to 50% over 2018;

For the purpose of the guidance in respect of 2019 outlook we would like to outline the following considerations:
We have ceased to recognize the portion of Tochka revenues associated with information and technology service agreements with Otkritie Bank for providing services to Tochka clients that have their accounts with Otkritie Bank starting from February 1, 2019 following the transfer of the Tochka operations to JSC Tochka. Such revenues were recognized in full for the full year 2018; however, they will only be recognized for one month in 2019. For the avoidance of doubt, only the revenues related to Tochka clients that have their accounts with QIWI bank will be recognized as QIWI group revenues in 2019. We will correspondingly account JCS Tochka as an associate going further.

The Company reserves the right to revise guidance in the course of the year.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Supplemental Financial Information

This release presents Total Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, 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 Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue and PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue; Net Profit, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA; and Adjusted Net Profit, or 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.

(1) Calculated using a ruble to U.S. dollar exchange rate of RUB 63.0756 to U.S. $1.00, which was the official exchange rate quoted by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation as of June 30, 2019.
(2) Payment Services Segment payment volume by market verticals and consolidated payment volume consist of the amounts paid by our customers to merchants or other customers included in each of those market verticals less intra-group eliminations. The methodology of payment volumes allocation between different market verticals in Contact and Rapida may differ from the methodology used by QIWI. We therefore retain the right to restate the presented volumes, net revenues and net revenue yields data in case the methodology of Contact and Rapida will be brought in conformity with the methodology used by QIWI.
(3)  PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue is calculated as the difference between PS Payment Revenue and PS Cost of Payment Revenue (excluding D&A) plus compensation to employees and related taxes allocated to PS Payment Revenue. PS Payment Revenue primarily consists of merchant and consumer fees. Cost of PS Payment Revenue primarily consists of commission to agents.
(4)  Payment Average Adjusted Net Revenue Yield is defined as PS Payment adjusted net revenue divided by Payment Services payment segment volume.
(5)  We measure the numbers of our kiosks and terminals on a daily basis, with only those kiosks and terminals being taken into calculation through which at least one payment has been processed during the day, which we refer to as active kiosks and terminals. The period end numbers of our kiosks and terminals are calculated as an average of the amount of active kiosks and terminals for the last 30 days of the respective reporting period.
(6) Active Qiwi Wallet accounts calculated on a yearly basis, i.e. an active account is an account that had at least one transaction within the last 12 months from the reporting date.
(7) Consumer Financial Services segment payment volume consists of the transaction amounts paid by SOVEST card customers to merchants offline and online (including, but not limited to the partner-merchants) or withdrawn through ATMs less the amount returned for corresponding reimbursements.
