In 4Q'20, operating expenses increased 65.9% year-on-year to RUB 19.4 bn (4Q'19: RUB 11.7 bn) driven by resumed growth of our loan portfolio, and investments into our fast growing new business lines.

The Group's customer accounts increased by 52.3% since the end of 2019 to RUB 626.8 bn (31 Dec'19: RUB 411.6 bn).

Tinkoff's total equity over 2020 rose by 32.2% to RUB 127.0 bn at the end of FY'20 (31 Dec'19: RUB 96.1 bn) even after the payment in 2020 of four interim dividends (total of USD0.80/GDR), on the back of solid net profit.

2021 Interim Dividend Announcement

In line with the Group's dividend policy, the Group's Board of Directors has approved a first 2021 interim gross cash dividend of USD 0.24 per share/per GDR (with each GDR representing one Ordinary share) with a total amount allocated for dividend payment in relation to 4Q of around USD 48 mn. Subject to London Stock Exchange regulations, indicatively the dividend will be payable on 29 March 2021 to those shareholders on the register as at the record date of 26 March 2021. The ex-dividend date will be 25 March 2021. According to the terms of the GDR deposit agreement, holders of the Group's GDRs should receive their dividends approximately 5 business days after the payment date.

GUIDANCE FOR 2021

With the gradual recovery in economic activity on top of strong performance in 2020, the Group is pleased to announce the following performance guidance for 2021: ? We expect our net loan portfolio growth to be more than 30% ? We expect cost of risk to be 7-8% ? We expect cost of borrowing to be in the 3-4% range ? We expect the share of non-credit revenues to be more than 40% of total revenues ? We expect net profit to be at least RUB 55 bn

The Group also plans to temporarily suspend dividends for the remainder of 2021 as it further assesses both organic and inorganic growth opportunities. It is management's belief that allocating capital to additional growth now is the best way of guaranteeing a sustainable and profitable business into the future. Growth opportunities will be discussed in more detail at the Strategy Day to be held on April 7 2021.

Some of the accumulated capital might also be used to buy back up to 1 mn GDRs to fund commitments to MLTIP, as previously communicated to the market.
