VTB announces pricing of Chinese Yuan 1 billion issue of Eurobonds

17 October 2012

On October 17, 2012, JSC VTB Bank ("VTB") priced a Eurobond offering of
Chinese Yuan (CNY) 1 billion 4.5% Notes due 2015 (the "Notes") to be issued
under its Programme No.2 for the Issuance of Loan Participation Notes for the
sole purpose of funding a loan to VTB ("the Offering"). This was a second
transaction for VTB in this local market, and received a strong reception from
Asian investors, who accounted for approximately 85% of the issuance with the
order book oversubscribed by 1.5 times. 

BNP Paribas and VTB Capital plc are the Joint Lead Managers for the issue.
The Notes will be addmitted to trading on the Irish Stock Exchange.

Deputy Chairman and CFO of JSC VTB Bank Herbert Moos said:

"This transaction underpins the availability of the CNY market and positive
perception that VTB has generated across local Asian currency markets
consistent with our debt diversification strategy. The transaction has been
priced through our USD secondary curve which comes in line with our plans to
optimize the costs of liabilities."
