How to find out the market price of shares of IDGC of Centre and determine the cost of the registrar’s services to transfer the rights to securities owned?

In accordance with Order of the Federal Financial Markets Service of Russia from 09.11.2010 N 10-65/pz-n "On approval of the Procedure for determining the market price of securities, the settlement price of securities, as well as the margin of fluctuation of the market price of the securities for the purpose of Chapter 23 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation", the market value of securities circulating on the established securities market is defined as the weighted average price calculated by the Russian trading authority in the securities market (stock exchange) at the end of each trading day, taking into account the margin of fluctuation of the market price of the securities:

1) upward - from the market price of a security to a maximum price of transactions with the security, made in the trades of the given trading authority in the securities market;

2) downward - from the market price of a security to a minimum price of transactions with the security, made in the trades of the given trading authority in the securities market.

The margin of fluctuation of the market price is determined by the securities transactions made in the trades of the trading authority in the securities market, on the day for which the weighted average price of the security was calculated, used to determine the market price of the security.

If the market value of securities is determined based on the weighted average price calculated on transactions in a separate trading mode (section), the margin of fluctuation of the market price of a security is also calculated for the transactions performed in this trading mode (section).

According to the price-list for the registrar’s services the market price of the securities to determine the cost of the registrar’s services to transfer ownership for the shares is determined on the day preceding the date of submission of documents to the registrar to transfer ownership rights.

Information on the market (average) price of shares of the Company, as well as the maximum and minimum price of transactions with shares of the Company is available on the website of Moscow Stock Exchange at:

http://moex.com/ru/marketdata/#/secid=MRKC&boardgroupid=57&mode_type=current&mode=instrument .

Information on the maximum and minimum price of transactions with shares of the Company is available on the Company's website at: https://www.mrsk-1.ru/investors/securities/ .

The price-list for the registrar’s services is available on the website of JSC VTB Registrar at: http://www.vtbreg.ru/shareholder/registrar/ , as well as on the Company’s website at: https://www.mrsk-1.ru/investors/registrar/ .

Thus, to determine the cost of the registrar’s services to transfer ownership for the shares it is necessary to compare the price of the transaction as specified in the order to make a transaction (or another document serving as the basis for the transaction) with a market value of transferred securities, obtained by multiplying the number of securities by the market price of shares of the Company according to Moscow Exchange on the day preceding the date of submission of documents to the registrar.

If the transaction price is higher than the market value of the transferred securities, the value of the registrar’s services on the transition of ownership for the shares needs to be determined based on the transaction price according to the price-list of the registrar.

If the transaction price is lower than the market value of the transferred securities, then it is necessary to determine whether it is within the lowest limit of the market price fluctuations, obtained by multiplying the number of transferred securities by the minimum price of the transaction according to Moscow Exchange on the day preceding the date of submission of documents to the registrar. If the transaction price is higher than the lower limit of the marginal market price fluctuations, the cost of the registrar’s services to transfer ownership for shares needs to be determined based on the transaction price according to the price-list of the registrar. If the transaction price is below the lower limit of fluctuation of the market price, the value of the registrar's services on the transition of ownership of the shares would have to be determined on the basis of the lower limit of the marginal market price fluctuations.

The cost of the registrar’s services for entering a record in the register for crediting / debiting securities from the account of the nominee holder or a beneficial owner, not related to the transfer of ownership of securities, is determined according to the price-list of the registrar at the market value of the shares obtained by multiplying the number of transferred securities by the market price of shares of the Company according to Moscow Exchange on the day preceding the date of submission of documents to the registrar (without taking into account the margin of fluctuation of the market price of securities).
