TCS Group Holding PLC: Total conversion of Class B shares and 
reclassification and redesignation of all issued shares as 'ordinary shares' 
07-Jan-2021 / 10:22 MSK 
Dissemination of a Regulatory Announcement that contains inside information 
according to REGULATION (EU) No 596/2014 (MAR), transmitted by EQS Group. 
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. 
                OF REGULATION (EU) NO 596/2014 
                FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
               TCS Group Holding PLC: Total conversion of Class B shares and 
reclassification and redesignation of all issued shares as 'ordinary shares' 
      Limassol, Cyprus - 7 January 2021. TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS LI) (the 
    "Group"), Russia's leading provider of online retail financial services, 
        today announces that it has received an instruction to implement the 
conversion of all outstanding 69,914,043 Class B shares in the Group held by 
         The Rigi Trust and the Bernina Trust, British Virgin Islands trusts 
     connected with Oleg Tinkov. It is anticipated that these Class B shares 
   shall be converted to Class A shares with effect from 7 January 2021. The 
        converted Class B shares rank pari passu in all respects and for all 
                purposes with each pre existing Class A share. 
     Following the conversion, each share shall carry a single vote, and the 
total number of votes capable of being exercised shall be equal to the total 
 number of issued shares (currently 199,305,492 shares following the Class B 
    share conversion). The number of GDRs in issue shall remain unchanged at 
                129, 391,443. 
     As a result of the conversion, Oleg Tinkov's voting rights in the Group 
 shall decrease from 84% to 35%. All issued shares shall be reclassified and 
redesignated as 'ordinary shares' and regulation 6 (previously incorporating 
  the special share rights) under the Articles of Association of the Company 
  shall be deemed deleted with effect from conversion. The Company will file 
      the updated Articles of Association with the Registrar of Companies in 
                Cyprus as soon as practicable. 
                Oleg Tinkov, Founder, commented: 
  "The share conversion decision announced today by the Tinkov family trusts 
  is a landmark in the history of the Group, reflecting the growing maturity 
  of the Company and its continuing evolution as a public company. I believe 
     that this is good for everyone! Every share now has equal weight on all 
    shareholder votes, and all shareholders' interests are aligned even more 
          closely. The Company has recently introduced a number of corporate 
      governance enhancements and I fully understand and share stakeholders' 
      expectations that this process will go further. The announcement today 
    therefore paves the way for further, wider-ranging governance changes in 
2021 and beyond. The Tinkoff Team is now actively working on the next phases 
 of our "corporate governance roadmap" which will be announced in the coming
