   PROPOSED PLACING OF  APPROXIMATELY 12 MILLION  GLOBAL DEPOSITARY  RECEIPTS
   REPRESENTING INTERESTS IN  CLASS A SHARES  OF TCS GROUP  HOLDING PLC  (THE
   "COMPANY") BY TADEK HOLDING & FINANCE S.A.

   20 November 2017

   Tadek Holding & Finance S.A. ("Tadek"), a company connected with  Mr. Oleg
   Tinkov (the  "Selling  Shareholder"),  announces  its  intention  to  sell
   approximately 12 million Global Depositary Receipts representing interests
   in Class A  Shares of  the Company  (the "Placing  Securities") (1  Global
   Depository Receipt = 1  Class A Share).  The Placing Securities  represent
   approximately 6.6 per cent of the Company's issued share capital.

   The Placing  Securities  are  being  offered  by  way  of  an  accelerated
   bookbuild (the "Placing"),  which will be  launched immediately  following
   this announcement. The offering is  being made to institutional  investors
   outside the US in accordance with Regulation S of the US Securities Act of
   1933, as amended (the "US Securities Act") and to qualified  institutional
   buyers in the US in accordance with Rule 144A of the US Securities Act.

   Any of the  Company's shares and  Global Depositary Receipts  held by  the
   Selling Shareholder (through Tadek and other entities) which are not  sold
   in the Placing will be subject to a 180-day lock-up, subject to  customary
   exceptions. Assuming all of the  Placing Securities are sold, the  Selling
   Shareholder (through  Tadek  and other  entities)  will continue  to  hold
   approximately 48 per cent of the issued share capital of the Company.

   Morgan Stanley  &  Co.  International  plc  is  acting  as  bookrunner  in
   connection with the Placing (the "Bookrunner").

   The final number of Placing Securities to be placed and the placing  price
   will be agreed by the Bookrunner and  Tadek at the close of the  bookbuild
   process, and  the results  of the  Placing will  be announced  as soon  as
   practicable thereafter.  The  timings  for  the  close  of  the  bookbuild
   process, pricing and  allocations are  at the absolute  discretion of  the
   Bookrunner and Tadek.

   The Company will not receive any proceeds from the Placing.

    

   Important Notice:

   Members of  the  general public  are  not eligible  to  take part  in  the
   Placing. This announcement and any offer of securities to which it relates
   are only addressed  to and  directed at  (1) in  any Member  State of  the
   European Economic Area, persons who  are "qualified investors" within  the
   meaning of  article 2(1)(e)  of  EU Directive  2003/71/EC (as  amended  by
   directive 2010/73/EU  to the  extent implemented  in the  relevant  Member
   State)  and   any   relevant  implementing   measures   (the   "Prospectus
   Directive");  and  (2)  in  the  United  Kingdom,  persons  who  (i)  have
   professional experience in matters relating to investments who fall within
   article 19(5) of the  Financial Services and  Markets Act 2000  (Financial
   Promotion) Order 2005 (as amended) (the "Order"); (ii) fall within Article
   49(2)(a) to (d) of the Order; or (iii) are persons to whom an offer of the
   Placing Securities  may  otherwise  lawfully be  made  (all  such  persons
   referred to  in  (1) and  (2)  together  being referred  to  as  "relevant
   persons").  The  information  regarding  the  placing  set  out  in   this
   announcement must not  be acted on  or relied  on by persons  who are  not
   relevant persons.  Any investment  or investment  activity to  which  this
   announcement relates is  available only  to relevant persons  and will  be
   engaged in only with relevant persons.

   This announcement does not, and shall not, in any circumstances constitute
   a public  offering, nor  an  offer to  sell or  to  subscribe for,  nor  a
   solicitation to offer to  purchase or to subscribe  for securities in  any
   jurisdiction. The distribution  of this announcement  and the offering  or
   sale of the Placing Securities in certain jurisdictions may be  restricted
   by law. No action has been taken  by Tadek (or any affiliates thereof)  or
   the Bookrunner or any of its  affiliates that would, or which is  intended
   to, permit a public offer of the Placing Securities in any jurisdiction or
   possession or distribution of this  announcement or any other offering  or
   publicity material relating to the Placing Securities in any  jurisdiction
   where action for that purpose  is required. Persons into whose  possession
   this announcement comes are required by Tadek and the Bookrunner to inform
   themselves about and to observe any applicable restrictions.

   With respect to the member states of the European Economic Area which have
   implemented the Prospectus Directive (each, a "Relevant Member State"), no
   action has been undertaken or will be  undertaken to make an offer to  the
   public of the Placing Securities sold by Tadek requiring a publication  of
   a prospectus in any Relevant Member  State. As a consequence, the  Placing
   Securities may  only be  offered  or sold  in  any Relevant  Member  State
   pursuant to an exemption under the Prospectus Directive.

   This announcement and the information contained herein is for  information
   purposes only and does not constitute or form part of any offer of, or the

   States, Canada, Australia or Japan or  in any other jurisdiction in  which
   such an offer or solicitation is unlawful.

   the US Securities  Act, or  under the  applicable securities  laws of  any
   state or other  jurisdiction of  the United States,  Canada, Australia  or
   Japan. The Placing  Securities may not  be offered or  sold in the  United
   States unless  registered under  the US  Securities Act  or offered  in  a
   transaction exempt from, or not subject to, the registration  requirements
   of the US Securities Act and the securities laws of any relevant state  or
   other jurisdiction of the United States. There will be no public  offering
   of the Placing Securities in the United States or elsewhere.

   The Placing Securities  have not been  approved or disapproved  by the  US
   Securities and  Exchange Commission,  any state  securities commission  or
   other regulatory  authority in  the United  States, nor  have any  of  the
   foregoing authorities passed upon or endorsed the merits of the placing or
   the accuracy or adequacy of  this announcement. Any representation to  the
   contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.

   No prospectus  or  offering document  has  been  or will  be  prepared  in
   connection with the Placing. Any investment decision to buy securities  in
   the Placing  must  be made  solely  on  the basis  of  publicly  available
   information. Such information  is not  the responsibility of  and has  not
   been independently verified  by Tadek  (or any affiliate  thereof) or  the
