Dear shareholders, customers and partners!
We are pleased to present you the Annual Report on CHELINDBANK performance in 2005.
The last year was the year of the Bank anniversary. CHELINDBANK celebrated 15 years of
its performance in the financial and credit market on October, 16.
During these 15 years CHELINDBANK became a large regional bank that is proved by its
daily activity. CHELINDBANK was one of the leading banks in Russia in many segments of
the banking system. The Bank achievements are acknowledged and confirmed by a number
of analytical agencies including foreign companies.
It was for the first time ever when in April 2006 an overview of the banking market of Russia
and a group portrait of 100 top banks as of January 1, 2006 were published by The Forbes
Magazine. CHELINDBANK is included in the list and is ranked as 100th by assets, as 46th by
individual deposits, as 87th by profit and as 117th by equity.
2005 became another year of the Bank’s dynamic and intensive development.
The Bank’s assets increased by 40% and amounted to RR 11.7 billion. The customers’
equity exceeded RR 8.5 billion including individual equity that grew by 42% and was equal to
5.3 by the end of the year. It should be mentioned that individual deposits structure was
characterized by considerable increase of deposits with the term of more than 1 year which
growth rate comprised more than 70%.
The expansion of resource base and improvement of its quality led to increase of credit
investment volumes. The Bank loan portfolio totaled about RR 7.8 billion by the end of 2005
that was a result of a 40% increase. According to RosBusinessConsulting’s rating as of
January 1, 2006 CHELINDBANK holds the 77th position among the top banks of Russia by
the loan portfolio volumes, and the 43rd position by consumer loans.
A shortage of equity is the main problem of the rapidly developing loan market. That is why
the Bank considers increasing of its own capital to be the matter of primary importance.
CHELINDBANK made an additional emission of shares and registered its share capital in
amount of RR 400 million. The Bank reevaluated its main funds as of January 1, 2006 that
led to a 1 million growth of the ownership capital. Thus, the Bank equity exceeded RR 2.3
billion that gives the Bank an opportunity to expand the volumes of operations and increase
its competitive abilities.
“Tested by time, confident in future!” This motto became the key note in celebrating the 15th
anniversary since the start of the Bank operation. CHELINDBANK has all reasons to face the
future with optimism – there is a good customer base, a wide range of competitive products,
modern technologies for their presentation, and professional employees.
It is obvious that the results achieved by the Bank would be impossible without functional and
creative relations with our Customers. It often happens so that human factor plays a more
important role than technical and financial aspects. And finally, this very factor leads to
On behalf of the Bank Council and the Board,

The Chelyabinsk region is a region of stable development. It plays a leading part in the
Russian economic environment. 2005 was also rather successful for the Chelyabinsk region.
The gross regional product (GRP) increased by 7.7% and amounted to RR 370 billion. The

Conception will be implemented till 2010, and its main trends have been already approved.
The program for governmental support of small businesses is in action, the program for
support of women and family business has been accepted. The small business support was
done in the way of preparing and teaching personnel, compensating a part of commercial
banks credit rates and leasing payments, and paying back the expenses for participation in
the trade-economic missions, exhibitions and expositions. There are special grants for
implementation of projects in the field of women and family business.
The number of people working for small business companies reached 530 thousand by the
end of 2005 that comprises the third part of all employees in the economic sector. The
volume of goods and services in this segment has exceeded RR 40 billion and the small
business share in GRP increased from 12.2% in 2002 to 16.5% - in 2005. During the same
period the small business share in tax revenue volumes grew from 3.8 to 10%

who live in the South Urals. The personal money incomes increased by 33.7%. One million
square meters of housing was built in 2005 – the growth since 2004 amounted to 24.2%
whereas in Russia in general this figure was equal to 6.5%.

Banking Sector of Russia and Chelyabinsk Region

The increasing trust of creditors and people to banks was one of the main developing factors
for the banking sector during the last years.
The funds raised from corporate customers increased from RR 903 bln in 2001 to RR 2 953
bln in 2005. Personal deposits increased more than by 400% and reached RR 2 755 bln for
the same period. Borrowings from international financial institutes and foreign banks play
more and more important role in the enlargement of the long-term resource base. However
the problem of limited sources for this long-term resource base is still very urgent.
The tendency for the credit investment growth remains on the stable level. Volumes of non-
financial and personal lending increased by 412% since 2001 and amounted to RR 5 454 bln
as of January 1, 2006, including personal lending – RR 1 179 bln. Despite the considerable
growth of consumer lending, this market obtains good prospects for further development.

Financial activities of credit institutes are also increasing. The profit of the banking sector in
2005 comprised RR 262.1 bln, in 2004 and 2003 – RR 177.9 and 128.4 bln correspondingly.
There is a growing competition in the banking sector not only among Russian credit
companies, but also between foreign banks.
The banking developing Strategy till 2008 was accepted in April, 2005. The role of banking in
the Russian economy, the growth of financial stability and transparency will be the key trends
in banking development. They suppose that the real growth rate of the main banking
activities (assets, capital, loans and deposits) will be still ahead of the GDP growth, though
the difference will be shortening. Banks will keep and improve their role as the leading
financial mediators. Taking into account the expected increase of real personal incomes, and
creating conditions necessary for economic and banking growth, the small business lending
volumes will be significantly expanded. The implementation of actions aimed at
reconstructing segments of financial sectors including pension and medical insurance
reformations will contribute much to increase in activity of credit companies’ performance.
There are 12 regional commercial banks in the Chelyabinsk region at present moment. All
banks became the members of Deposit Insurance System. The regional banking system also
includes 108 branches: 41 of which are regional banks branches, 35 branches of credit
companies from other regions, mostly from Moscow, and 32 branches represent the Bank of
CHELINDBANK is a leading credit company of the Chelyabinsk region judging by the main
areas of banking performance. The Bank’s share in the market of raising personal funds is
growing constantly and comprises 12% already, in the entrepreneurs lending market – 20%.
The Bank holds a stable position in the market of corporate funds and in the corporate lending
market – more than 10%.
According to the forecasts made by the Bank of Russia for 2006 the banking sector will
continue its gradual developing. The growth of demand for banking products and services
combined with strengthening banking competition will lead to acceleration of processes in the
banking sector of Russia:

1. major universal banks that have already taken significant market positions will continue
   faster growing and developing branch networks;
2. many of stable medium and small banks will stick to the strategy of voluntary

Vladimir Dyatlov

Vice-Governor of the Chelyabinsk Region

I rather often contact with CHELINDBANK, both as a member of the regional
administration and as a customer. It is one of the first commercial banks in the
Chelyabinsk region. During 15 years the bank’s performance is stable and it
contributes much to the development of the regional economical environment. People
who work for CHELINDBANK deserve the highest appreciation and appraisal.

CHELINDBANK is a universal bank and grant financial services to major enterprises, small
and medium business representatives, and individuals. The main trends of Customer service
set by the Bank in 2005 were efficiency and complexity of services.

Corporate Customers

The corporate business is one of the main lines of the Bank activity. The Bank corporate
customers are enterprises and companies of different range and from different branches of
economy. These are atomic enterprises – FGUP PO Mayak, FGUP “Russian Federal
Nuclear Center”, non-ferrous metallurgical companies – Chelyabinsk Zinc Plant, Kyshtym
Copper Electrolytic Plant, Ufaleynickel, ferrous metallurgical companies – Asha Metallurgical
Plant, Chelyabinsk Electrometallurgical Plant, energy enterprises – Chelyabenergo; food
industry – Bread-baking plant named after Grigorovich, telecommunication companies -
Uralsvyazinform (Utel), trade companies – Pokrovsky Passage, small and medium
businesses, and many others.
CHELINDBANK corporate Customer service is customer-oriented; its main goal consists in
matching services with the needs of the Clients.
The result of this approach is that the Bank keeps its market positions. Despite increasing
competition in the banking market caused by performance of both regional banks, non-
resident banks and foreign banks CHELINDBANK remains to be one of the leaders of the
region by the number of corporate Customers. As of January 1, 2006 the total number of
corporate deposits in the Chelyabinsk region amounted to 109 thousand, and more than 20
thousand deposits was opened at CHELINDBANK.

Tatyana Skurlatova, Director of Treasury
“We want to be a reliable partner and source of information. The more customers ask
us to assist them in those financial aspects they are interested in, the more
opportunities we have to offer them the optimal solution. That is why relations but not
transactions are the starting point in the Treasury. Relations are our main product in
many ways”.

According to the number of corporate accounts opened in 2005 the Bank’s share among the
credit companies (and their branches) totaled 18% that was 1% higher than the similar figure
of the last year.
Today the Bank offers to its Customers a high-quality service and a variety of products:
beginning from the standard and traditional banking services and finishing with individual
kinds of service developed for some particular enterprises or groups of Customers. Most of
the Customers of the Bank chose the complex service including cash and settlement
services, encashment services, salary projects, lending, depositing and currency operations.
The Bank fulfills cash and settlement servicing for corporate Customers both in Russian and
foreign currency. The high quality of settlement operations is secured by the presence of the
Bank’s Settlement Center that sufficiently increases the speed of Customers’ payments and
transactions by implementation of distant service systems and by existence of the Bank’s
own encashment service.
In 2005, the funds on corporate accounts totaled RR 3.3 bln, and its growth comprised 33%
whereas the same growth in the whole banking sector of the Chelyabinsk region amounted
to 31.5%.
Lending is still the most popular service in the variety of the Bank’s services. The corporate
loan portfolio grew more than by 32% in 2005 and was equal to RR 5.6 bln by the end of the

Andrey Tarasov, Head of Credit Division
“Life proves that business is successful when partners understand and appreciate
each other. This is the most efficient way. Only being in permanent contact with the
customer the Bank can expect long-term and creative relations. We always try to
understand our clients, show them how we treat the situation and find some mutual
solution. If we manage to do this than very interesting projects usually appear. The
bank and the customers have a common credit history. We make it together.
CHELINDBANK provides corporate loans in rubles and foreign currency. The Bank grants
short-term, medium-term and long-term loans for a single contract, fulfills lending in the form
of overdraft, in the form of “debt limited” credit line, and in the form of “drawdown limited”
CHELINDBANK offers a wide range of lending types including leasing. ChelIndLeasing
Company was established in 2003 to make agreements for a purchase of trucks and cars,
industrial equipment, entertainment equipment, office appliances and others. In 2005, the
Expert-Urals magazine ranked ChelIndLeasing as 24th by the amounts of leasing payments
among 44 leasing companies of the Urals Region. Besides, ChelIndLeasing was ranked as
number 1 among the most dynamically developing leasing companies of the region and was
in top 5 leaders in “the Industrial Complexes” sector.
The main currency customers of the Bank are defense enterprises, non-ferrous and ferrous
metallurgical companies, chemical plants, machine building factories, food industry, travel
and trade agencies, and educational institutes. An individual approach is the basis for
currency service of the Bank.
The Bank offers such types of services as cash and settlement service, currency control,
transfers and documentary operations.
A growing correspondent network allows the Bank to transfer Customers’ money to different
countries. At present the Bank correspondent network consists of 202 correspondent banks
from more than 30 countries. In 2005, a special attention was paid to developing relations
with such countries as Italy, Kazakhstan and Turkey. Basing on the Customers’ demand the
Bank was given credit lines by such banks as: Nationale Del Lavoro (Italy), Turan Alem
(Kazakhstan) and Yapi Kredi Bank Moscow (the Turkish bank’s subsidiary). Development of
foreign correspondent network is done according to the annual approved “Marketing Plan for
Working with Correspondent Banks” that is based on the data received from monitoring
currency transactions made by Customers.
The Bank started operating 500 transaction passports in 2005. To bring this kind of service
closer to Customers six leading branches of the Bank got the right to act as currency control
agents. “Procedures for Signing Transaction Passports through “Client+Bank” System” were
implemented in 2005.
The Bank offers a wide range of trade financing services to its Customers:
   Direct lending with export/import contracts;
   Confirmed letter of credit with delay of payment;
   Documentary letter of credit with post-financing.
These financial instruments help our Customers to reduce foreign trade expenses by 30-40%
in comparison with classic loans. The volumes of trade financing credit lines set to
CHELINDBANK by foreign banks and financial institutes comprise $33 mln as of January 1,
2006. This illustrates the growth of trust from foreign banks and international recognition of
the Bank’s performance, and gives opportunities for improving Customer service possibilities
by using efficient methods of international settlement.
Consultancy and workshops are very important parts of Customer service, and they deal with
peculiarities of definite services, technologies, economic and legal problems.
CHELINDBANK started several workshops in 2005. Specifically, the meetings with the Bank
Customers – managers of different enterprises and companies were held last year. Their
topics were – “Practical Solutions for International Currency Transactions within Existing
Currency Legislation of the Russian Federation”, and “Additional Services of CHELINDBANK
Contributing to Promotion and Development of Customers’ Business”.
Taking into account diversity of the Customer base and growing competition in this sector,
modification of classic bank services regarding to the requests of different groups of
corporate Customers became the main goal of corporate business development. The Bank
specialists improve existing and create new technologies of services, develop individual
packages of services that consider, inter alia, Customer’s industry classification.

Small business

CHELINDBANK is treated by many local small business representatives not only as a
service Bank, but as a real business partner. The banking system plays a leading role in the
investment-lacking environment of small enterprises. That is why CHELINDBANK evaluated
market tendencies and defined small business as a leading trend of its activity.
Alexander Yaschenko, Manager of Korkinsky Branch of CHELINDBANK
“The branch has achieved a considerable profit growth and increase of local financial
share in the beginning of 2005. But we consider improvement of our relations with
customers to be our main achievement. It can be demonstrated by mutually beneficial
cooperation with local businessmen as far as the loan portfolio of the branch is
constantly increasing due to the dynamic development of our Customers’ business.
Thus, the Bank and its Clients develop together and become strategic partners for
many years.”
Small business lending is realized by the Bank for several years. The $5 mln agreement with
the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development was signed in September, 2002
within “the Program of Small Business Lending”, and enforced the development of this
segment. This program obtained a great demand since the first days of its operation. 140
loans were granted during the first 3 months, and by the end of 2005 small business loans
amounted to 12% of the Bank credit portfolio. In December 2004, the Bank signed the next
agreement with the EBRD under this program. The total amount of new agreement
comprised $15 mln.
The small business loan portfolio increased by RR 417 mln or by 82% and totaled more than
RR 924 mln at the beginning of 2006. The total number of loans exceeded 6.5 thousand.

Not only geographical covering, but also varieties of credit products are competitive
advantages of the Bank. Small business loans granted by the Bank have the following
advantages: long terms, fast decision-making, convenient repayment schedule with respect
to the Customer’s business, the existence of settlement account in CHELINDBANK is not
Besides collateral loans with the maximum term of three years, CHELINDBANK has been
dealing with non-collateral loans since August, 2004. The loan is disbursed the next day after
application, and the Customers do not have to prove their incomes or pledges. Also, the loan
can be repaid in advance and the next loan can be granted simultaneously,
The amount of non-collateral loans doubled in 2005 from RR 150 to 200 thousand, the term
of repayment increased from 12 to 18 months.
The bank is looking forward to a long-term prospective cooperation with entrepreneurs and
creates favorable conditions for the Customers. If a person is dealing with several business
activities than the EBRD lending procedure suggests consolidated revising of the whole
business of the borrower. It helps the expert to get a more thorough impression about the
Customer’s performance and provide him with the amount comparable to the real profits of
the business. The careful financial analysis of the businessman’s performance during last
three months will serve as the main guarantee for the loan repayment.
Taking into account needs of small business the Bank started to develop special mortgage
programs for individual entrepreneurs. These programs will be implemented in 2006.

Deputy, State Duma of the Russian Federation

I have stable and time-tested relations with CHELINDBANK. Fifteen years has passed
since we became friends and started our developing together. CHELINDBANK was the
first bank that trusted me and my partner Yuri Antipov in the period of our business
formation. The bank has overcome all defaults and failures that it had been facing
during 15 years and managed to prove its reliability. I wish good luck, happiness and
further growth to CHELINDBANK staff,

Retail Market Division was established for working out efficient tools that will give an
opportunity to implement retail development policy. Development and implementation of new
retail products, marketing researches, search for new retail service approaches are the
priorities of this division. The bank was actively perfecting all trends of retail business paying
great attention to expanding the service range, improving quality and optimizing conditions of

“As far as the bank is a company that deals with different kinds of audience with
different values and goals, and as far as the bank directly depends on its
representatives, it is very important to win trust and respect from all of them. We try to
make our performance in accordance with the requirements of different categories of
people. By developing new products and services, arranging various promo actions,
we want our customers to feel that they are parts of the bank’s life. The title of “The
People’s Bank” that we got for 15 years of work in the Chelyabinsk region lays great
obligations on us.

The main gain of funds on individual accounts was achieved by increase of time deposit
volumes, especially volumes of deposits with a term of 1 year and more. The share of

deposits with a term of 1 year and more comprises almost 49% of all time deposits, whereas
this kind of deposits totaled 40% in 2004. This change of individual deposit structure is an
evidence for high level of Customers’ trust and loyalty, and efficient marketing strategy of the
bank in this retail segment.
The Bank is constantly perfecting its deposit line. On the one hand, the Bank makes it

variety of all-prize lotteries and creative contests.
The Bank informs its Customers about goals and principles of Deposit Insurance System.

January 1, 2006. The number of existing loan agreements grew by more than 13 000 and
comprised 56 500 agreements.
The growth of individual lending volumes and various needs of the Bank Customers led to
necessity for developing different lending programs. At the moment individual lending is
being developed in the following ways: consumer lending, car lending, salary projects,
lending for buying residential property and improving residential conditions, credit cards.
The volumes of car loans sharply increased 2.9 times. The main principle of car lending
program in CHELINDBANK is that conditions of the loan are defined by the Customer. The
interest rate is calculated depending on the security, amount of the first payment and type of
insurance. To increase a number of potential clients the Bank works with any car dealers and
provides loans for any car models. Besides, there are no restrictions in the choice of an
insurance company, and the Bank can include the amount of insurance to the total amount of
the loan. All these conditions, individual payment schedule and possibility for advance
repayment make this CHELINDBANK service competitive and attractive for the Clients.
CHELINDBANK provides consumer loans to individuals for urgent needs: purchase of
consumer goods, tuition fees, holidays, repair works and many others. The total amount of
consumer loans granted by CHELINDBANK in 2005 was equal to RR 2.3 bln that one and a
half time exceeded the similar figure of 2004.

The total number of loans granted under salary projects in 2005 increased by more than 11
thousand and comprised 26.8 thousand with a total amount of RR 298.9 mln as of January 1,
2006. The annual growth amounted to RR 64 mln. The plastic card lending under salary
projects is represented by the following types: overdraft, credit line “with a debt limit”. The
issue of VISA credit cards was also started in 2005.
There is still high demand for loans for improving residential conditions and purchasing
residential property. The loans provided for purchasing residential property not only in the
secondary market, but also in the houses under construction became a completely new kind
of service. Mortgage Lending Department was established in the Bank for developing and
promoting different kinds of mortgage and residential loans.
CHELINDBANK has been taking part in regional mortgage programs since 2000. There are
local mortgage programs in such cities of the region as Snezhinsk, Yuzhnouralsk and
Troitsk. Federal “Agency for Mortgage Lending” (Moscow) and regional “South Urals Agency
for Mortgage Lending” (Chelyabinsk) became external investors of this project. The Bank
entered into agreements with regional agency and municipal authorities within the Regional
Residential Program for 2002-2010 that includes subprogram – “Implementation of Mortgage
Lending System in the Chelyabinsk Region”. The Bank branches grant mortgage loans in
Snezhinsk, Yuzhnouralsk and Troitsk within these programs.
Valentina Kuzmina, Manager of “Istok” Branch
Our branch works in Snezhinsk since the foundation of CHELINDBANK. During all
these years our branch takes an active part in the life of the city. We are especially
proud that our branch was the beginner of the mortgage lending history in the
Chelyabinsk region. In December 2000 two first mortgage loans in the history of the
region were provided by “Istok”. These mortgage certificates were the first in Russia
and were registered in the South Urals Registration Office.

In 2006, the Bank is planning to develop and offer to its Customers a variety of credit
programs, increase emission of credit cards, make agreements with car dealers for the
purpose of improving car lending sector.
Payment for goods and services is one of the most widely spread kind of banking products
for private customers. This kind of service has been developed by the Bank since 2001.
During this period a number of companies who made agreements with the Bank for payment
reception increased greatly.
For the purpose of simplifying technologies of this service and improving transaction system
for community and other charges a new kind of system was implemented in 2005 – “System
of Personal Payment Reception” (SPPR). This system is created on the basis of program
module and works in all branches of the Bank.
The technologies of informational exchange between the Bank and the companies in
accordance with the requirements of Customers were developed within this program, and the
united database was created and is renewed and perfected up-to-date. To make this system
closer to the Customers the technology of payment reception through ATMs, on-line and cell
phones was introduced. At present moment Clients can pay to companies situated both in

Chelyabinsk and in the region where the Bank branches work for more than 200 kinds of
goods and services.
The Bank is going to continue entering into agreements with companies and enterprises in
2006, and mainly with community suppliers and telecommunication providers, as far as these
services are mostly demanded by people. The bank will actively work for increasing the
number of payment reception points and attract other companies (banks, markets, etc.) to be
the agents of this system. It is foreseen to make SPPR available for CHELINDBANK loan
Plastic cards
Technological effectiveness and universality remain to be the main criteria for
Plastic card services play the key role in CHELINDBANK performance. CHELINDBANK is a
principal member of the VISA International payment system. The Bank has issued more than
239 thousand cards of this system as of the beginning of 2006. The emission of
microprocessor VISA cards was started in 2004. Since that time the Bank has been issuing
cards of this type only. Besides, when the term of old magnetic cards expires the Bank
replaces them with microprocessor ones.

Cash transactions made through ATMs or cash offices of the Bank dominate non-cash
plastic card transactions. This tendency is typical for Russian market of plastic cards in
general. The Bank is constantly expanding infrastructure of plastic cards. In 2005, the
number of ATMs settled by the Bank increased by 16 and totaled 91 at the end of the year.
Cash funds can be also withdrawn at 139 cash offices.
Non-cash transactions with plastic cards are the tasks of higher priority for the Bank. In this
respect terminals are installed in the market points, discounts for the cardholders are

negotiated, terminal and cash machines functions have been expanded, and additional
services for plastic cards are being developed.
The number of companies accepting CHELINDBANK VISA card payments for goods and
services increased by 137 in 2005 and amounted to 315 as of January 1, 2006. The volume
of operations in trade and service segment increased by 35.8% in 2005, the quality of service
also increased. The wireless GSM terminals were implemented in 2005 and helped to
increase the number of enterprises entering into acquiring agreements with the Bank.
In 2005, CHELINDBANK launched an SMS-service to inform the Customers about plastic
card transactions. The Customer receives all information about receipts, transactions and
account balance on his mobile phone. Mobile payments made directly from mobile phones
are very popular among the cardholders. The Bank also started accepting community and
other payments through ATM and terminal network in 2005.
Besides internal strategy of developing non-cash transactions, the Bank takes an active part
in different promotional actions arranged by VISA International aimed at stimulating usage of
plastic cards as payment means. In 2005, the Bank participated in such promo actions as
“VISA – New Year Carnival”, “Celebrating New Year with VISA card”, “VISA opens a holiday
season”, “Buy and win”. The winners of these actions got expensive prizes.
The Bank is going to implement several new plastic card products in 2006. These are co-
branding cards, instant issue cards, prepaid cards, loyalty applications on chip-cards, VISA
business services development and many other perspective directions.
Other Services
The bank is increasing volumes of such operations as money transfers, currency exchange,
and depositing of Customers’ valuables in individual safety boxes. These types of services
have already become traditional both for the Bank and the Customers, though the Bank
continues to develop their technologies, offers new possibilities within these services and
arrange promo actions.
CHELINDBANK provides money transfer both through its own correspondent network and
Western Union, an international money transfer system. During 2005, the Bank opened 16
new Western Union points in the city and regional branches. In cooperation with the Western
Union representative office in Chelyabinsk the Bank arranged the promo action “Transfer
with surprise”. Those Customers who transferred or received money through Western Union
during this period were given Western Union souvenirs. The Bank also took part in the
Western Union promo action for discount transfers to China, Mongolia, Hong-Kong and
Under the deposit safety box program a new product was developed – deposit box renting
within a trilateral rent agreement for individual deals that suppose simultaneous or separate
(after fulfillment of some conditions) access to the deposits. This service is demanded mainly
by car and real estate sellers and buyers.
The Bank pays great attention to improving quality of individual Customer service. The Bank
specialists regularly control conditions of individual Customer service in different branches
and subsidiaries of the Bank. They make questionnaires to learn public opinion about the
quality of service and demand for new products. The results of control and questionnaires
lead to modifications and changes in service technologies, time-table of branches and
subsidiaries, development of new kinds of services and products.

Vsevolod Geikhman

General Director, Chelyabinsk Zink Plant

CHELINDBANK is like a big white bird flying high in the sky. The eastern people and
Japanese in particular believe that a crane is a symbol of honesty, purity and
helpfulness. I want to wish CHELINDBANK that the flight of this big white bird will be
high, long and happy.

CHELINDBANK has the most extended branch network among the regional banks. There
are 28 branches of the Bank working in the Chelyabinsk region. The total number of
structural subsidiaries opened by the Bank including subsidiary offices, operating desks,
exchange offices and representative offices in Zlatoust and Moscow exceeds 60. In 2005,
CHELINDBANK went out of the borders of the Chelyabinsk region and opened “Chkalovsky”
branch in Ekaterinburg.
CHELINDBANK continues to develop Customer service infrastructure. In 2005, the Bank
opened six subsidiary offices in 5 cities of the region and in Chelyabinsk. CHELINDBANK

subsidiary offices are mini-banks that make corporate and personal banking service. Cash
and settlement services, deposits, money transfer, plastic card transactions and currency
exchange are available for the Customers in subsidiary offices.
The Bank branches achieved considerable results in 2005. The organization of performance
of the branches as independent business units contributes to growing sales of products and
services, developing range of products, increasing profitability. In 2005, the total balance of
the branches increased by more than 42% in comparison to 2004. The balance profit earned
by the branches grew by 48% during 2005. The growth of loan receivables for the same
period was equal to 44%. The Head office makes quarterly ratings of the branches on the
basis of their balance highlights and financial activities. These ratings are sent to all
branches, and this fact stimulates improving financial results.
Albina Ryabtseva, Manager, Magnitogorsky Branch
“Banking is a system that provides no time for relax. It is very important to observe
the balance in developing different trends: continuous personnel education, constant
consumer demand analysis, studying competitors’ activity and planning our own
performance. During 15 years of operating the Magnitogorsky Branch has turned into
a tried and tested instrument possessing high potential for further growth. It is
obvious that the results we achieved would have been impossible without functional
relations with our customers, because our clients represent that very power that does
not allow us to stay at one place and makes us developing and perfecting our work”.
Last year the Bank paid significant attention to improving service facilities of the Branches.
The Bank purchased the buildings for Transportny, Chkalovsky, Trekhgorny, Chebarkulsky,
Korkinsky branches and subsidiary offices in Magnitogorsk, Kasli, Plast and Katav-Ivanovsk.
The Bank sticks to the common standards of quality and technology of Customer service. For
that purpose the Head Office specialists train the staff of the Branches that take part in
different practical courses, seminars and workshops.
In 2005, specialists from the Head Office arranged seminars devoted to plastic card service,
currency service, work of System of Personal Payment Reception, Western Union transfers,
Customer service including promo actions, cash operations, questions of accounting and
automatization of banking processes and some others.
The product line of the branches is constantly expanding. At the moment the Customers can
get almost the same range of services in the branches as they do in the Head Office.
Increasing level of competitiveness in the field of currency service was paid significant
attention in 2004-2005. In 2005, the work for increasing the number of branches authorized
for currency operations was done. At the moment all 29 branches have the right for
independent work with individual and corporate customers, documentary operations, six of
the branches were entitled to act as currency control agents.
As of January 1, 2006, all 29 branches can issue VISA Electron cards, 22 branches can
grant “overdraft” loans, 19 branches provide acquiring services. During 2005, there was a
positive dynamic growth of trade and service turnover. The volumes of turnovers in 2005
amounted to RR 21.7 mln, 2004 – RR 6.2 mln. The considerable growth of turnover is shown
by the Head Office Operational Department – 14.5 times, Magnitogorsky branch - 2.6 times,
“Synegorye” – 34.3 times.

In spite of standardized service technologies the Bank takes into account economic, social
and competitive peculiarities in the region of presence of the Bank. Thus, taking into
consideration requests made by some Customers of the branches, the Bank developed
several special plastic card products. These are “VISA Electron – Mayak”, “VISA Electron –
Snezhinsk”, “VISA Electron – “interest-free”.
All Bank branches are connected to SPPR and actively participate in promoting payment
receipt services.
The branches also played a significant role in arranging promo actions for depositors and
cardholders in accordance with the technologies developed by the Bank. Participation in
such actions gave the branches an opportunity to increase their Customer base, attract
additional resources and implement new technologies. Since 2001, the Bank branches and
subsidiaries have been taking part in the contest for attraction of individual deposits. The
results and winners are defined quarterly.
In 2006, the Bank is going to hold tendencies for expanding range of services granted by the
branches and increasing quality standards of banking service.

Risk Management
Risk management is done in respect of financial (credit, market, geographical, foreign
exchange, liquidity and interest rate), operational and legal risks. The main goal of the
financial risk management is a limit definition and assurance of its further observing. The
operational and legal risk management shall ensure proper fulfillment of internal rules and
procedures for the purpose of minimizing these kinds of risks.

Credit Risk. The Bank takes a risk and particularly the risk that counteragent will fail to pay
the debt in time. The Bank controls the credit risk setting the limits per one borrower or a
group of related borrowers, and also setting limits in accordance with geographical and
industrial segments. The Bank regularly monitors such risks and reviews the limits at least
once a year. The credit risk limit by products, borrowers and industries is approved by the
Board of the Bank.
Credit risk for non-balance financial instruments is defined as the possibility for losses
caused by another user’s failure while fulfilling contractual obligations. The Bank follows the
same policy in respect to conditional obligations that is done in respect of balance financial
instruments based on deal approving procedures, risk limiting quotes and monitoring.

Market Risk. The Bank takes the market risk connected with the open positions in the field
of pricing, foreign exchange and share instruments that is explained that they are influenced
by the market changes. The Board settles the risk limits and follows its observance on a daily

Geographical risk. The Bank’s assets, liabilities and loan commitments are usually
classified by the country of the location of counterparty. Cash, precious metals and fixed
assets are classified by the country of their physical presence.
Currency risk. The Bank defines its currency risk as the risk of loss arising from adverse
changes in foreign currency exchange rates. The Bank Board establishes risk limits for
foreign currencies in general, by the end of a day, during a day and ensures their day-to-day
Liquidity risk. Liquidity risk is the risk that the Bank will not be able to have sufficient funds
readily available to repay liabilities as they mature. The Bank established a sound liquidity
management in order to satisfy liquidity needs for daily settlements on the clients’ accounts,
repayment of deposits, allowance of credits, settlements on guarantees and derivative
instruments. Liquidity risk is managed by the Asset and Liability Management Committee.
Interest rate risk. The Bank defines its interest rate risk as the risk of loss arising from
adverse changes in market interest rates. The Bank assumes this risk primarily through its
lending activities relating to fixed-rate loans for amounts and periods different from those
applied to fixed-rate attraction of funds.

The Bank Management establishes limits for a possible difference in interest rates which are
monitored daily. For lack of hedging instruments, the Bank seeks to manage this risk through
matching of the interest rates positions.

Legal risks. Changes in currency regulations, tax legislation, requirements to bank licenses
and modifications in judicial practice in respect of banking performance can influence the
amount of net profit received by a credit company
In spite of liberalization of currency laws the risk for changing to less number and lower
volumes of obligatory currency transactions is estimated as moderate. The risk for changing
tax legislation to increase of tax volumes for banking sector is insufficient – last years were
marked by decreasing profit tax rate, VAT rate, tax for operations with securities and the
Consolidated social tax. The risk connected with changes in banking licensing is also
evaluated as not significant, All licenses obtained by the Bank are termless: General license,
license for attraction of deposits and distribution of precious metals, license of professional
market maker.

To protect the Bank interests, shareholders and Customers the Internal Control System was
created in CHELINDBANK. Internal Control System is a complex control for quality of
financial and economic activity, reliability of financial and managerial information, observance
of legal norms and internal rules (policy) of the Bank.

To make the Bank resistant to economic and banking crises the Council and the Board of the
Bank are gradually increasing the Risk Management System. The risks taken by the Bank
are reasonable, controlled and correspond to the Bank’s financial ability and competence.
The Risk Management System is aimed at complex risk evaluation affecting achievement of
goals, and at measures ensuring proper reaction to changing circumstances and conditions.
The Risk Management Division was established in the Bank.

The Risk Management System is based on the following principles::
   full correspondence of working technologies and internal banking instructions to
    requirements of the Bank of Russia;
   collective decision-making;
   permanent revelation and evaluation of risk level by divisions providing operations
    (transactions) with risks of losses
   existence of divisions responsible for revelation and evaluation of risk level and
    independent from divisions providing operations (transactions) with risks of losses;
   regular monitoring and control of risks;
   existence of specifically developed normative base for systematization, evaluation,
    measurement and control of risks;
   existence of reliable automated informational systems securing risks evaluation,
    measurement, control and informing;

   existence of action plans in case of emergency;

Department for Financial Monitoring is responsible for counteracting legalization of proceeds
from crime and terrorism financing. Measures taken in accordance with internal control
procedures provide efficient daily control for revelation and delivery of corresponding
information to the Financial Monitoring Committee of the Russian Federation.

The Bank and Society
Nothing and nobody can exist in isolation. The stable business development is impossible
without integrating into society and social environment.

CHELINDBANK expresses its attitude to the society in accordance with its mission: “We pay
careful attention to the social demands and in cooperation with local authorities participate in
promoting social programs for the sake of society, economic development and growth of the
Chelyabinsk region”
During 15 years of its performance CHELINDBANK contributes to keeping social values and
increasing life quality by transferring part of its profit to charity and development of social
environment in which the Bank is functioning. The charity activity of the Bank is mainly aimed
at supporting those in need: children, disabled people and veterans.
In 2005, the Bank continued to help such organizations as independent noncommercial
organization “Detstvo” (“Childhood”), regional charity fund “Tepliy Dom” (“Warm Home”);
financed children’s homes No. 2 and 7 in Chelyabinsk, Chelyabinsk noncommercial
association of disabled people “Jupiter”; Chelyabinsk city noncommercial organization of
people disabled in the Great Patriotic War “Zaschita” (“Protection”); Miass city
noncommercial association of disabled people “Diabetic Society”; Chelyabinsk regional
association of veterans of war, labor, Armed Forces and security authorities; the Bank took
part in financing the “Stella” monument dedicated to labor veterans of Chelyabinsk.
The Bank provided a sponsorship for horse racing competitions in Troitsk, Chelyabinsk
region, and for traditional Russian Militiamen Memorial named after Maslennikov..
In 2005, our employees initiated collection of clothes, toys and other things for orphans from
children’s home No. 13 in Chelyabinsk. When the action was over and collected things were
given to kids, people working for CHELINDBANK were still bringing clothes, books, toys, and
everybody suggested announcing this action termless. And that was the decision, because
there is no such notion as “grief of others”.
