“Today I’m glad to share our third quarter 2020 financial results. This quarter we continued to demonstrate strong performance in our Payment Services segment and Other projects. Our Payment Services segment showed solid dynamics and delivered 11% segment net revenue growth supported by several factors including high density of sport events as well as growth of our strategic self-employed stream. This quarter we also successfully closed the Sovest sale transaction and concluded the wind down of Rocketbank which has reshaped our focus on core operations as well as projects that can be synergetic with our key products, consumer niches and competences,” said Boris Kim, QIWI’s chief executive officer. “Today we see increasing uncertainty related to among other things the spread of coronavirus and we closely monitor the situation as it evolves. This being said we continue to focus on optimizing and improving efficiency of our operations across all projects. Despite uncertainty and challenging economic and operational environment, we see diverse opportunities for growth in mid and long term and we believe that we are well positioned to continue expanding our business with the ultimate goal of securing our long-term growth prospects.”

Third Quarter 2020 Results

Total and Segment Net Revenues: Total Net Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was RUB 6,637 million ($83.3 million), an increase of 11% compared with RUB 5,993 million in the prior year. The increase mainly resulted from Payment Services (PS) Segment Net Revenue growth and positive contribution of Rocketbank (RB) Segment as opposed to negative effect on Total Net Revenue for the same period of the previous year offset by Consumer Financial Services (CFS) Segment Net Revenue decline due to the sale of the SOVEST project.

Payment Services Segment Net Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was RUB 6,108 million ($76.7 million), an increase of 11% compared with RUB 5,484 million in the prior year.

PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue was RUB 5,303 million ($66.6 million), an increase of 13% compared with RUB 4,676 million in the prior year. PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue growth was predominantly driven by volume growth.

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 806 million ($10.1 million) compared with RUB 808 million in the prior year. Fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 were RUB 506 million ($6.4 million) compared with RUB 484 million for the corresponding period in the prior year. PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue excluding revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments decreased 7% compared with the same period in the prior year to RUB 300 million mainly due to lower interest revenue resulting primarily from lower CBR rate.

Corporate and Other Category (CO) Net Revenue includes: (i) net revenue from cash and settlement services related to the operations of the Tochka project1; (ii) net revenue from account receivable financing and digital bank guarantees products of Factoring PLUS project; (iii) net revenue from marketing solution products of Flocktory; and (iv) net revenue from other start-up projects. For the quarter ended September 30, 2020 Corporate and Other Category Net Revenue was RUB 449 million ($5.6 million) compared with RUB 268 million in the third quarter of the prior year. Category Net Revenue dynamics was driven primarily by the following factors:

  • Tochka Net Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was RUB 126 million ($1.6 million) compared with RUB 199 million in the third quarter of the prior year. Tochka Net Revenue decline primarily resulted from a decrease in revenue generated from cash and settlement services due to lower number of active clients in QIWI Bank.
  • Factoring Net Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was RUB 182 million ($2.3 million) compared with RUB 55 million in the third quarter of the prior year. Factoring Net Revenue growth resulted predominantly from the scaling of the project including expansion of bank guarantees and factoring portfolios.
  • Flocktory Net Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was RUB 135 million. Flocktory was considered as an associate before it was consolidated as a part of the QIWI Group in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA: For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, Adjusted EBITDA was RUB 4,020 million ($50.4 million), an increase of 60% compared with RUB 2,516 million in the prior year. The adjusted EBITDA increase was driven primarily by Total Net Revenue growth as well as a decline in selling, general and administrative expenses to RUB 711 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to RUB 1,510 million for same period in the prior year resulting primarily from a decrease in advertising, client acquisition and related expenses driven by the divestiture of SOVEST and Rocketbank projects. Adjusted EBITDA growth was offset by an increase in personnel expenses (excluding effect of share-based payments) to RUB 1,946 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to RUB 1,788 million for same period in the prior year mainly as a result of an increase of Payment Services segment personnel expenses as well as consolidation of Flocktory offset by a decline in personnel expenses of CFS and RB segments. Adjusted EBITDA margin (Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Total Net Revenue) was 60.6% for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared with 42.0% for the same period in the prior year.

Adjusted and Segment Net Profit: For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, Adjusted Net Profit (Total Segment Net Profit) was RUB 3,275 million ($41.1 million), an increase of 73% compared with RUB 1,893 million in the prior year. The growth of Adjusted Net Profit was primarily driven by the same factors impacting Adjusted EBITDA increase as well as by higher foreign exchange gain2 offset by higher income tax expenses.

For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, Payment Services Segment Net Profit was RUB 3,633 million ($45.6 million), an increase of 11% compared with RUB 3,259 million in the prior year driven by Payment Services Segment Net Revenue growth as well as by a decline of travelling expenses and marketing and advertising expenses offset by an increase in personnel expenses (excluding effect of share-based payments).

The Consumer Financial Services Segment Net Loss for the third quarter 2020 was RUB 137 million ($1.7 million) as compared to a Net Loss of RUB 424 million for the same period of the prior year resulting primarily from a decrease in personnel expenses (excluding effect of share-based payments),selling, general and administrative expenses due to the project sale as well as credit loss recovery compared to credit loss expenses in the prior year.

Rocketbank Segment Net Loss was RUB 165 million ($2.1 million), as compared to the Net Loss of RUB 632 million in the prior year resulting mainly from a decrease in personnel expenses (excluding effect of share-based payments) and selling, general and administrative expense due to the project winding-down.

Corporate and Other Category Net Loss includes: (i) net profit from the Tochka JV operations; (ii) net profit/loss of Factoring PLUS project; (iii) net profit/loss of the Flocktory project; (iv) net profit/loss from other start-up projects, and (v) Corporate expenses. Corporate and Other Category Net Loss for the third quarter 2020 was RUB 56 million compared to a Net Loss of RUB 310 million for the same period of the previous year. The dynamic of CO category Net Loss was driven primarily by the following factors:

  • Corporate Net Loss for the third quarter of 2020 was RUB 408 million ($5.1 million) compared with RUB 353 million for the same period of the previous year;
  • Tochka Net Profit for the third quarter of 2020 was RUB 281 million ($3.5 million) compared with RUB 156 million in the same quarter of the previous year. Tochka Net Profit increase resulted from higher equity pick-up primarily driven by the growth and development of the Tochka business despite challenging operating environment.
  • Factoring Plus Net Profit for the third quarter of 2020 was RUB 72 million ($0.9 million) compared with Net Loss of RUB 14 million for the same period of the previous year. Factoring Plus Net Profit growth was mainly driven by project Net Revenue increase.

Payment Services Other Operating Data: For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, Payment Services Segment payment volume was RUB 435.4 billion ($5.5 billion), an increase of 11% compared with RUB 391.3 billion in the prior year. The increase in payment volume was primarily driven by growth in E-commerce and Money Remittances market verticals offset by decline in Financial Services and Telecom market verticals. Payment Average Adjusted Net Revenue Yield was 1.22%, increase of 2 bps as compared with 1.20% in the prior year primarily driven by volumes shift towards higher yielding verticals.

Payment Services Segment Net Revenue Yield was 1.40%, flat as compared with the prior year.

The number of active kiosks and terminals was 117,137 including Contact and Rapida physical points of service and decreased by 14% compared with the prior year. The number of kiosks and terminals is generally decreasing as market evolves towards higher share of digital payments, moreover our physical distribution network was and to a certain extend continues to be negatively affected by the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, corresponding lockdown measures and other restrictions that limited users’ access to certain retail locations as well as the overall activity of the population. Nevertheless, we believe that our physical distribution network remains an important part of our infrastructure.

The number of active Qiwi Wallet accounts was 19.7 million as of September 30, 2020, a decrease of 2.6 million, or 12%, as compared with 22.3 million as of September 30, 2019 primarily resulting from the introduction of new limitations on the anonymous wallets and consequent optimization of certain transaction processes, change of inactivity term from 6 to 12 months and enhancement of certain KYC, identification and compliance procedures. Such decline did not substantially impact our financial or operating performance due to increasing diversification of our product proposition and operating models.

Recent Developments

Rocketbank Winding down: As of September 30, 2020, we have substantially completed the process of Rocketbank B2C operations wind down. We continue to pilot certain projects that were developed earlier this year in Rocketbank in our Payment Services Segment particularly as part of our self employed stream product pipeline. The expenses associated with such pilots including predominantly personnel expenses are attributed to the Payment Services Segment starting August 1, 2020.

Dividend: In March 2020, the Board of Directors has approved a target dividend payout ratio for 2020. In accordance with the decision of the Board of Directors, the Company aims to distribute at least 50% of Group Adjusted Net Profit for 2020.

Following the determination of the third quarter 2020 financial results and taking into consideration our current operating environment, our Board of Directors approved a dividend of USD 34 cents per share. The dividend record date is December 1, 2020, and the Company intends to pay the dividend on December 3, 2020. 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.

2020 Guidance3

QIWI reiterates its guidance in respect of 2020 outlook:

  • Total Net Revenue is expected to increase by 7% to 15% over 2019;
  • Payment Services Segment Net Revenue is expected to increase by 3% to 10% over 2019;
  • Adjusted Net Profit is expected to increase by 35% to 50% over 2019.

For the purpose of the guidance in respect of 2020 outlook we would like to outline the following considerations:
The outbreak of the COVID-19 strain of coronavirus and associated responses from various countries around the world is likely to negatively affect consumer demand across the globe and across industries, and there is the potential for COVID-19 and responses to it to cause a global recession. At this moment we are not able to accurately estimate the potential impact of COVID-19 on our business. In addition, it is currently unclear how much consumer demand will be negatively affected by the outbreak of COVID-19 and what effect the outbreak of COVID-19 will have on the macroeconomic environment, as a whole. The full impact remains uncertain and will depend on the length and severity of the effect of the coronavirus on economic activity in our markets. Our outlook reflects our current views and expectations only and is based on the trends we see as of the day of this report. If such trends were to deteriorate further the impact on our business and operations could be more severe than currently expected. We continue to monitor the situation closely.

The Company reserves the right to revise guidance in the course of the year or when additional information regarding the effect of the ongoing events becomes available.

1 Starting from the first quarter 2020 we present Tochka JV results as part of the Corporate and Other Category
2 Foreign exchange gain/loss is calculated as total foreign exchange gain/loss, net recognized in the statement of comprehensive income excluding the effect of foreign exchange gain/loss on June 2014 offering proceeds

Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Supplemental Financial Information

This release presents 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 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. 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 PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Profit, and Adjusted Net Profit per share, including a quantitative reconciliation of Total Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue, PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Profit to the most directly comparable IFRS financial performance measure, which is revenue in the case of Total Net Revenue, PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue and PS Other Adjusted 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.

PS Payment Adjusted Net Revenue is the Adjusted Net Revenue consisting of the merchant and consumer fees collected for the payment transactions. E-commerce payment adjusted net revenue consists of fees charged to customers and merchants that buy and sell products and services online, including online games, social networks, betting, online stores, game developers, software producers, coupon websites, tickets and numerous other merchants. Financial Services payment adjusted net revenue primarily consists of fees charged for payments accepted on behalf of our bank partners and microfinance companies. Money Remittances payment adjusted net revenue primarily consists of fees charged for transferring funds via money remittance companies, card-to-card transfers and certain wallet-to-wallet transfers. Telecom payment adjusted net revenue primarily consists of fees charged for payments to MNOs, internet services providers and pay television providers. Other payment adjusted net revenue consists of consumer and merchant fees charged for a variety of payments including multi-level-marketing, utility bills, government payments, education services and many others. PS Other Adjusted Net Revenue primarily consists of revenue from fees for inactive accounts and unclaimed payments, interest revenue, revenue from overdrafts provided to agents, rent of space for kiosks, cash and settlement services and advertising.
