ACRA assigns BB+(RU) to XS1631338495 bond issued by Tinkoff Bank

Credit rating rationale. TCS Finance D.A.C., an Irish designated activity company, issued the USD 300 million perpetual bonds and transferred all issue proceeds to Tinkoff Bank in the form of a subordinated loan. The loan terms comply with the Bank of Russia Regulation No. 395-P (Basel III), so that the loan may be included in the paid-in capital in excess of par. Tinkoff Bank acts as a guarantor for any liabilities of TCS Finance D.A.C. in the issue.

The issue implies a significant subordination to priority unsecured creditors and the right of Tinkoff Bank to cancel, at its discretion, coupon payments with the creditors having no right to claim unpaid interest. The issue terms and conditions provide for a full write-off of the loan in the event the Common Equity Tier 1 Ratio N1.1 goes down below 5.125% or if the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA) institutes a bankruptcy prevention procedure. In accordance with the relevant ACRA methodology, the final credit rating for the issue of this type is set five notches below the Tinkoff Bank's standalone creditworthiness assessment (a).

The credit rating of Tinkoff Bank is determined by its adequate business profile, strong capital adequacy, satisfactory risk profile, and adequate funding and liquidity position. The Bank has a moderately high creditworthiness compared to other credit institutions in the Russian Federation.
