In the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022, the Company announced its plans to divest its interests in its Russian securities brokerage and complementary banking operations in Russia ("Russian Segment"). On October 17, 2022, the Company entered into an agreement with Maxim Povalishin for the sale of 100% of the share capital of its Russian segment. Maxim Povalishin, the purchaser, is currently the Deputy General Director and a member of the Board of Directors of Freedom RU. The transaction is subject to the approval of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation and is expected to be completed within the next fiscal quarter.
The consideration for the purchase of the Russian Subsidiaries consists of the following:
•Mr. Povalishin will be assigned the Company’s obligation to Freedom RU under an outstanding deferred payment in the amount of approximately RUB 6.6 billion (at foreign exchange rate on the reporting date approximately $115 million) (the “Deferred Payment Obligation”) which resulted from the purchase by the Company of 90.43% of the share capital of Freedom RU’s Kazakhstan subsidiary Freedom Finance JSC (“Freedom KZ”) (with its subsidiaries) from Freedom RU as part of a corporate restructuring, as a result of which the Company will become the 100% direct owner of Freedom KZ. The agreement for the purchase of Freedom KZ was entered on September 13, 2022. The transaction was approved by regulatory body and is expected to be finalized during November 2022; and
•Mr. Povalishin will pay cash in an amount equal to (x) $140 million less (y) the amount of the Deferred Payment Obligation as translated into U.S. dollars at the official exchange rate on the closing date.
The Company has classified the Russia Segment as discontinued operations as of September 30, 2022 and for the three and six months ended September 30, 2022, because the subsidiaries to be disposed of in this transaction met the held for sale criteria as of September 30, 2022.
