TCS Group Holding PLC: appointment of new directors and committee change

Limassol, Cyprus - 09 September 2021. TCS Group Holding PLC (TCS LI) (the "Group"), Russia's leading provider of online financial and lifestyle services via its Tinkoff ecosystem, is pleased to announce further changes to its Board of Directors.

The Group now announces that Pavel Fedorov and Marilou Pavlou have agreed to join the Board of Directors of the Company. Pavel will join as a non-executive Director (NED) and Marilou as an executive Director (ED). These appointments enhance the Board of TCSGH with market-leading expertise in business development, international markets, legal and compliance, acquisitions and partnerships - all key aspects of Tinkoff's growth strategy.

Pavel and Marilou will join the Board on 10 September 2021.

Pavel will become a member of the Strategy Committee of the Board while also advising the Group on strategic development issues, including some of the international expansion projects.

Initially both these appointments are made by vote of the Board. GDR holders will be invited to cast their vote on the proposed line up of the Board at the next AGM to be held later in 2021.

These changes complement Board appointments made in March and May 2021 and together with other changes push forward our initiative to enhance TCSGH's corporate governance. The Board appointments made in 2021 align the composition and competences of our Board with the status of Tinkoff as one of the leading global fintech companies, as well with the strategy of our rapidly evolving business.

Pavel received his Diploma in Economics/Operations Research from Novosibirsk State University and graduated as Edmund Muskie Fellow from the University of Washington with MBA in Finance.
