Moscow, 1

Russia's largest consumer electronics retailer, ("the Company") and his
partners Pavel Breev and Mikhail Tynkovan, today announce the signing of an
agreement to sell their entire interest in PJSC M.video to Safmar Group.
Under the agreement, Safmar Group will acquire 100% of shares in an
investment company owned by Alexander Tynkovan and his business partners. The
investment company in turn owns 57.7% of M.video.

The agreement ensures fair and equal treatment of all M.video shareholders, as
it includes as a mandatory condition to completion of the transaction a
voluntary tender offer to be made by Safmar Group to all minority
shareholders of M.video to acquire their shares (the "Voluntary Tender
Offer") at the same acquisition price as that paid to Alexander Tynkovan and
his business partners. The Voluntary Tender Offer will be secured by a bank
guarantee, in compliance with applicable legislation.

Completion of the transaction is subject to all necessary regulatory approvals
being obtained.

The M.video management team will remain fully engaged in the operational
management of the Company both before and after the transaction closes.
Alexander Tynkovan and Pavel Breev will also provide all necessary support
following completion of the transaction, in order to ensure a seamless
transition and continued growth to benefit shareholders, partners, employees
and customers alike.

M.video has built one of the best corporate governance systems in Russia, and
has an experienced and strong management team led by Enrique Fernandez, CEO
of M.video Management LLC, which will ensure operational continuity
throughout the transition period and thereafter.

Alexander Tynkovan said: "In the more than 20 years since I founded M.video,
our Company has transformed from a small shop into the largest company in its
sector. But what is more important is that we have created a highly efficient
management system that will drive M.video's sustainable growth in future. The
Company is ready to achieve new and ambitious goals, and fresh investment
from the new shareholder will help take it to the next level. I am a strong
believer in the future of the new Company and will be pleased to support the
management and new shareholders after the transaction completes."

BIN Group (Safmar) founder Mikhail Gutseriev said: "M.video is one of the
outstanding companies in its field, and we see it as the base for Safmar
Group to expand its business in the non-food retail sector. We look forward
to working with M.video's professional management team, and to benefiting
from its experience and expertise. I would also like to express my
appreciation to Alexander Tynkovan and Pavel Breev for their support and
readiness to work with us after the transaction closes."
