Cash payments are not envisaged.

3. Procedure for determining the number of the Shares that may be purchased by each person having the pre-emption right

The maximum number of Shares that may be purchased by any person by way of exercising their pre-emption right to purchase the Shares shall be determined pro rata to the number of the Issuer's ordinary shares owned by them as of the date of the preparation of the list of persons entitled to participate in the general meeting of shareholders at which the resolution, under which the Shares are being placed by way of closed subscription (6 September 2019), was adopted and shall be determined according to the following formula:

X = A / 133,561,119 × 700,000, where

X is the maximum number of Shares that may be purchased by any person having the pre-emption right to purchase them;

A is the number of the Issuer's ordinary registered shares owned by the Applicant as of the date of the preparation of the list of persons entitled to participate in the general meeting of shareholders at which the resolution, under which the Shares are being placed by way of closed subscription, was adopted;

One hundred thirty-three million five hundred sixty-one thousand one hundred nineteen (133,561,119) is the total number of the Issuer's ordinary registered uncertificated shares placed earlier, as of the date of the preparation of the list of persons entitled to participate in the general meeting of shareholders at which the resolution, under which the Shares are being placed by way of closed subscription, was adopted;

Seven hundred thousand (700,000) is the number of Shares being placed by the Issuer in accordance with the Decision on Additional Shares Issue.

If as a result of determination of the number of additional ordinary registered uncertificated shares being placed, within which the person having the pre-emption right to purchase the specified shares may exercise the pre-emption right, a fractional number is generated, such person shall be entitled to purchase a part of an additional ordinary registered uncertificated share being placed (a fractional share) corresponding to the fractional part of the resulting number.

A fractional share gives the shareholder holding it the rights granted by the share of the corresponding category within the scope corresponding to the part of the whole share it makes up.

Fractional shares shall be traded pari passu with the whole shares. Title to fractional shares shall be registered in the shareholder register system on personal accounts of registered persons without rounding.

Please note that the Russian legislation implies that you may purchase fractional shares while exercising your pre-emption right, although a fractional share does not considerably affect the number of votes you hold at the general meeting of shareholders and does not significantly increase the amount of due dividends (if any dividends are payable to shareholders), whereas the alienation of such a fractional share may result in additional expenses or efforts on your part that are usually not compatible with the benefits associated with such fractional share ownership. For this reason, it may be preferable for you to purchase a whole number of shares.

4. Procedure for submission of the applications to purchase the Shares by the persons having the pre-emption right to purchase the Shares to the Issuer
