OJSC MAGNIT: Clarification to the February 2013 Results Press-Release Press-release Krasnodar March 11, 2013 OJSC "Magnit" Provides Clarification to February 2013 Results Krasnodar, March 11, 2013: OJSC "Magnit" (the "Company"; MICEX and LSE: MGNT) provides further clarification to the February 2013 results press-release After the publication of Magnit's 2013 February results, we received some calls from analysts and investors and therefore, we would like to provide some further clarification. It should be noted that the month of February 2012 was in a leap year and thus, had 29 days (i.e. an extra day). February 2013 was a normal year and thus, there were 28 days. Therefore, the 37.48% sales growth in February 2012 was based on a month with 29 days and in order to fairly compare it with February 2011 (a normal month with 28 days) an amount of 3.6% should be subtracted from 2012, which would equal 33.88%. To compare the results of February 2013 with February 2012 correctly, an amount of 3.6% should be added to February 2013, which would equal 29.5% For further information, please contact: Timothy Post Director, Investor Relations e-mail: Post@gw.tander.ru Tel. in Krasnodar +7 (861) 277-45-54, 210-98-10 ext. 7600 Mob.: +7 (961) 511-76-78 Direct line for investors only: +7 (861) 277-45-62 Dina Svishcheva Deputy Director, Investor Relations e-mail: Chistyak@gw.tander.ru Tel. in Krasnodar +7 (861) 277-45-54, 210-98-10 ext. 5101 Mob.: +7-961-511-02-02 Direct line for investors only: +7 (861) 277-45-62 Company description: Headquartered in the southern Russia city of Krasnodar, Magnit (LSE and MICEX: MGNT) is the holding company for a group of entities that operate in the retail trade under the "Magnit" brand.
