In December 2011, following the binding agreement signed in May 2011, the Group obtained the power to govern financial and operating policies of Troika Dialog Group Ltd. (the Company or Troika Dialog). At 31 December 2011 the Company was consolidated into the Bank’s financial statements as a 100% subsidiary. The documentation on the acquisition of the Company assumes two tranches for the deal settlement: (a) the first payment of USD 1 000 mln for 100% of the shares of Troika Dialog and (b) subsequent payment which is dependent upon the net earnings of the Company for 2011 — 2013.

The Bank determined that the second part of the payment includes two components. The first component represents consideration for business combination, which is recognised as liability at 31 December 2011 in the amount of RR 3 937 mln.
