External Auditor rotation policy

According to our corporate policy we conduct tenders to choose an external auditor for both RAS and IFRS financial statements at least once every five years. To ensure a high quality of audit services, we select one of the ‘big four’ audit firms. To ensure the independence of the external audit process, our Audit Committee oversees the provision of non-audit services by the external auditor. 

The Company’s Audit Committee evaluates the quality of the external auditor’s service and its independence on an annual basis.

For the year of 2010 Deloitte and Touche CIS was approved as the company’s auditor.
Since 2011 AO PricewaterhouseCoopers Audit has been the company’s auditor for both IFRS and RAS financial statements. The Latest approval of the company’s auditor was made by Company’s Annual General Meeting  held on 24 June 2015.
