N.D.), that he needs to deliver to CJSC "AMI-Bank" by the chairman of the board of his


person. He (Egorov N.D.) told him that the current chairman of the board


copes well with his duties and you can leave him in this position.


Chuyan I.P. insisted that the chairman of the bank’s board should be his


person, because he owns a controlling stake in the bank. He (Egorov N.D.) is not


began to object to Chuyan I.P., but they agreed with him to achieve parity that


the chairman of the board of directors of the bank will be his (N.D. Yegorova) person. Chuyan I.P.


said that he has an acquaintance Gordeev N.N., whom he sees at the post


chairman of the board. He (Egorova N.D.) had doubts about the candidacy,


in this connection, he clarified with Chuyan I.P., whether he is sure of the reliability and


professionalism Gordeeva N.N. Chuyan I.P. assured him that he had already worked with Gordeev


N.N. knows him well both from a personal and professional point of view. After


this, Chuyan I.P. insisted on bringing N.N. Gordeeva. to his house so that they


met in person. He (Egorov N.D.) did not insist on this, but Chuyan I.P. does not matter


after a while Gordeeva N.N. brought him to his home. Their first meeting with N.N. Gordeev. took place at his (Egorova N.D.) home in the presence of I.P. Chuyan. Chuyan I.P.


introduced him to N.N. Gordeeva. as your confidant, a high-class specialist,


which will be able to make the Bank one of the market leaders. At the meeting Gordeev N.N. assured him of


that he has sufficient experience and professional qualities to develop


bank. Gordeev N.N. brought and showed him (Egorov N.D.) the bank development schemes. IN


As a result, he (Egorov N.D.) agreed with I.P. Chuyan. and the candidacy of N.N. Gordeev. on the


the position of the chairman of the board of CJSC AMI-Bank. First, Gordeev N.N. by


at the insistence of Chuyan I.P. was appointed First Deputy Chairman of the Management Board


CJSC "AMI-Bank", and then in January 2012 took the position of chairman of the board


of this bank Since the end of 2011 and during 2012, a number of transactions related to


exit Kharebov S.A. and Karaya Z.B. from the shareholders of CJSC "AMI-Bank" and


purchase of a block of shares in the amount of 75% by I.P. Chuyan. Package purchase scheme


He (N.D. Yegorov) does not remember the bank’s shares, but in the end Chuyan I.P. acquired LLC


Exttech, LADIUS LLC, OXIRIA LLC, Tandem-Standard LLC,


who own 75% of the bank’s shares, that is, became the owner of this block of shares


minus 1 share. He (Egorov N.D.) continued to own blocks of shares in the amount of 25% plus


1 share. In 2012, at one of the meetings, Chuyan I.P. and Gordeev N.N. offered him


enlarge CJSC AMI-Bank by joining CJSC Barentsbank,


explaining that the consolidation of the bank will only benefit its development. He (Egorov


N.D.) did not object, because he was interested in preserving and developing


their assets. After that, during 2012, CJSC "AMI-Bank" joined


Barentsbank CJSC, the merged bank, was renamed into OFK Bank OJSC. IN


his joint bank with Chuyan I.P. shares remained the same: 25% plus 1 share


belonged to him (Egorov N.D.) and 75% minus 1 share belonged to I.P. Chuyan. through


legal entities controlled by him. This ownership structure existed


unchanged until about 2013-2014. In 2013-2014, when meeting with him


(Egorova N.D.) at the house of Chuyan I.P. told him that he intends to sell his stake in


in the amount of 25% plus 1 share to Gordeev N.N. The cost of the package under the transaction was


about 240 million rubles. Then he (Egorov N.D.) took this news positively,


as he believed that the ownership of the bank’s shares would be an additional


motivation for Gordeev N.N., but with him (Egorov N.D.) no one


agreed, Chuyan I.P. presented with a fact. Sometime after


purchases Gordeev N.N. reissued about 10% of shares to his subordinates Ablogin


AL. and Fokina R.S. Gordeev N.N. explained this by the fact that he could not confirm


To the Central Bank of Russia the level of income required to acquire all


package of shares. As far as he knows from N.N. Gordeev, A.L. Ablogin. and Fokin R.S.


were nominee shareholders and owned shares in it, N.N. Gordeeva


interests. At first he was surprised where Gordeev N.N. found such a large


the amount for the purchase of shares, but then he (Egorov N.D.) did not give this a serious


significance, since these were the cases of Chuyan I.P. and Gordeeva N.N. However, later, during


inspections carried out by Alvarez & Marsal CIES LLP and LLC


"KPMG Taxes and Consulting", it turned out that for the purchase of shares N.N.


used the bank’s money, that is, in fact, illegally seized, stole the bank’s money and


bought shares on them. In 2012, he (Egorov N.D.) took the position


Chairman of the Board of Directors of the bank. He did not have a suitable candidate for this


position in the bank, so he decided to take it himself. He counted on that in this


positions will control the financial and economic activities of the bank. It held the specified position before the suspension of the powers of the governing bodies


Bank on March 21, 2018. He (Egorov N.D.) never dealt with operational


management of financial and economic activities of the bank. Its powers and scope


the information provided to him was limited by legislation on


joint stock companies, the Charter and the Regulation on the Board of Directors of the bank. Interests


Chuyana I.P. represented by G.A. Sokolovskaya, A.A. Prokofiev. and Gordeev N.N. So


Thus, Chuyan I.P. there was an absolute majority as at general meetings


shareholders of the bank and the Board of Directors. Until 2015, the Board of Directors also


included V.V. Kurilov, K.V. Korelin. (represented the interests of V.V. Korelin, who


through a legal entity owned 2% of the bank’s shares), Fokin R.S. The bank acted


collegial executive body — the Management Board, which, in addition to Gordeev


N.N. included Ablogin A.L., Zharkov D.L., Bolotov L.A., Fokin R.S. At the moment


acquisition by Chuyan I.P. the block of shares in the bank and the appointment of N.N. Gordeev


President and Chairman of the Management Board of PJSC OFK Bank, he (Egorov ND) placed


in this bank deposits in the amount of about 150 million US dollars, they were issued


to the offshore "Fabel", then re-registered to the Russian legal entity "Apex


South ”,“ Axis Investments ”. He (Egorov ND) periodically replenished these deposits. Before


In 2016, he was fully confident that the bank was successfully growing and developing.


According to the bank’s financial statements, ready-made reports and other documents,


which Gordeev N.N. provided to the Board of Directors, the bank was profitable and


had good financial performance. This was also evidenced by the positive


the auditor’s reports, which confirmed the compliance with the presented


Gordeev N.N. accounting (financial) statements to the actual state


bank. From Gordeev M.M. he (Egorov N.D.) learned that a significant


some of the bank’s clients are producers and sellers of alcoholic beverages.


However, he was not interested, since it was not within his competence, he


completely trusted N.N. Gordeev. and the bank management subordinate to him. In the end


2015 — the first half of 2016 appeared in the media publications that the bank is actively buying up fish enterprises in the territory Leningrad, Kaluga and Kaliningrad regions of Russia at the expense of attracted at the financing bank. He (Egorov N.D.) asked Gordeev N.N. comment on publication data, but he stated that the information in the media incorrect and that the fish farms belong to one of the bank’s clients. In May 2016, information appeared in the media that the Federal Tax Service Russia filed claims against PJSC OFK Bank in the amount of about 7 billion rubles in connection with bank guarantees issued to a number of alcoholic beverage producers products on the territory of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic and the Republic of North Ossetia — Alania.



At the meeting of the Bank’s Board of Directors held on May 26, 2016


years in St. Petersburg, N.N. Gordeev reported on the situation with banking


guarantees issued to producers of alcoholic beverages. According to him in


During 2015, in order to develop the operational activities of Status Group LLC, the bank issued bank guarantees for exemption from the advance payment of excise tax to alcohol producers.


products located on the territory of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic and


Republic of North Ossetia — Alania: LLC "ALKO-Light", LLC "Antares", LLC


Atlantis, Hermes-Nika LLC, Pravoberezhny Distillery LLC, Mineral LLC


plus ", LLC" Onyx ", LLC" Orion ", LLC" Rakurs ", LLC" Chegemsky


Vinpisheprom ”, LLC“ Everest ”, LLC“ Distillery Maisky ”and LLC“ Distillery Rus-Alka ”. By


the terms of the bank guarantees, the principals were exempted from paying the advance


payment of excise tax, the guarantor for these guarantees was LLC "Status-Group". IN


during 2015 tax audits were carried out in respect of the principals and


decisions were made on bringing to tax liability and additional charges were made


arrears on excise taxes for the sale of vodka products. Due to the fact that


the principals did not pay the tax on time, in March-May 2016 the tax authority


filed a claim to the bank for the payment of funds under bank guarantees for


the amount of 7.3 billion rubles. Received information about bank guarantees, along with


previously published information about the fishing business, lack of intelligible


explanations from the side of N.N. Gordeev caused him (Egorov N.D.) a serious


concern. In order to obtain objective information about the real


the state of affairs in the bank, on his initiative, an external financial


consultant company "Alvarez & Marsal CIES DLNP". In connection with


by the above, he (Egorov N.D.) demanded from Gordeev N.G. provide the Council


directors for more complete information about the company LLC "Status-Group". Gordeev N.N.


at first he only said that Status-Group LLC is one of the major clients


bank. However, he later admitted that the beneficial owner of Status Group LLC is I am Chuyan I.P. He (Egorov N.D.) met with Chuyan I.P. and demanded


explanations from him. Chuyan I.P. admitted that Status-Group LLC and a number of other


alcohol companies — the bank’s clients belong to him, and he (Chuyan I.P.) is their


beneficial owner. At the same time, he replaced the LLC that previously belonged to him.


"Golden Manufactory" at Status-Group LLC. Chuyan I.P. assured him (Egorova N.D.),


that OOO "Status-Group" and other alcohol companies belonging to it


work legally, and that he himself does not violate the legislation on state


service, since it is not engaged in the operational management of the business, that is


entrepreneurial activity. Also Chuyan I.P. explained that he was working on


attracting additional investments to the bank. After that, he began to find out


why transactions with Status-Group LLC and other alcoholic companies in Chuyan


I.P. were not submitted for approval as an interested party transaction. It turned out that in


due to the fact that the shares of the bank and shares in the authorized capital of LLC "Status-Group" and


other companies Chuyana I.P. owns indirectly, through third parties, in connection with which


on the formal grounds of the bank’s transaction with Status-Group LLC and others


companies Chuyana I.P. did not require approval as an interested party transaction.


Then for him (Egorova N.D.) it became obvious that Chuyan I.P. actually uses


Bank to finance its alcohol business. And he does it at the expense of him


deposits, without investing in the bank and its development, and without developing it,


despite our agreements with him. The revealed situation caused him


serious concern, since he (Egorov N.D.) was not only a shareholder, but also


one of the largest depositors of the Bank, the total amount of the deposit was about 150


million US dollars ".
