Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, thank you for waiting. And welcome to Yandex Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results Call.

Now, I'll turn the call over to Arkady who'll give you an update of our Q3 operation activities.

Arkady Volozh

Thank you, Greg. And thank you, all for joining us today for Q3 conference call. We delivered another set of strong finance and operational results. Let me highlight some of the most important developments in our business over the last 3 months. One, we saw excellent paid clicks growth both on our properties and overall as we increased their evidencing of our ads and drove higher ROI's for our advertisers. Two, we grew our market share on mobile, both on iOS and Android. Three, we unveiled new cost per action model on Yandex.Market, including the ability to complete the process directly on our site. And, four, we announced the acquisition of KinoPoisk movie search, which will serve as a new search vertical at the Yandex. Now, let's get into some of the details. Let me begin by mentioning our search share. According to LiveInternet, our share of searches on all platforms including mobile, was 62% in Q3 of 2013, compared to 60.5% the same quarter last year, an increase of 1.5 percentage points year-over-year, an increase of 0.3 percentage points sequentially. Share gains were driven by a combination of the quality of our search technology, gains seen by Yandex.Browser, and gains on mobile. We launched our Yandex.Browser just over a year ago, currently Yandex.Browser has approximately 6% of market share in Russia. Next month, we're going to introduce Yandex.Browser for iPhones and for other tablets, and fills [ph] based cross platforms synchronization[ph].

Overall, we think that Yandex.Browser is an excellent product and we will continue to invest in it's development. Let me now turn to the growth in paid clicks. The way of improvements to the click prediction Fcoverage and SERP layout, that we have been making since the beginning of the year continued to bear fruit. Paid clicks growth accelerated to 50% this quarter compared to 29% growth we saw in Q2. Importantly, paid clicks growth on our own and affiliated sites excluding the effect of Mail.ru and the rest of order our advertising network was comparable to the overall level of paid clicks growth. And obviously, all things being equal, so we're planning a greater volume of paid clicks at lower CPCs leads to better ROIs for our own advertisers. Our advertiser count grew 24% year-over-year to a record of 261,000 advertisers. A healthy pace comparable to the rate of growth as we saw in the previous quarter. Turning to mobile, I'm happy to report that we have been gaining share both on iOS and on Android. On iOS, we currently estimate that our market share is approximately 40%, and it is compared to 30% to 35% that I was quoting previously. And our iOS market share is still increasing as a result of iOS 7 upgrade, which is obviously been terrific. On Android, we estimate that we have at least 61% market share, which compares to the 47% to 48% figure that we gave you last quarter. Our growth on Android is driven by 2 main factors, one is the wide availability of our browser and our social application, and second, we believe that a number of loyal Yandex users are upgrading from legacy smartphone platforms and choosing Yandex as a search engine. Let me now turn to Yandex.Market. At the beginning of the year, we told you that Yandex.Market is one of our top priorities for 2013. We have been working hard to transform Yandex.Market from a price comparison site with enhanced functionality into a marketplace platform. That includes introducing a cost bear action pricing for promotions, rather than and more traditional cost technique. And we are now also giving our users an ability to complete their purchase directly on the Yandex.Market without the need to leave our site. There are a number of benefits of this approach. One, user's information is stored in their Yandex password, eliminated the need to reenter the name, phone number and address every time, further card abandonment is a big problem for e-commerce and this simple step should increase ease of use and elevate conversions. And two, the cost per action model closely aligns our interest to with e-commerce participants on our platform. We only make money when they make money. We are pricing this platform aggressively to make it extremely attractive to our merchant partners. Merchants can begin with test and development work using our open APIs, as we are planning to give consumers an ability to buy directly on the Yandex.Market in November. Early in October, we announced the acquisition of KinoPoisk movie search in Russian. The largest and most comprehensive rational english website dedicated to movies, TV shows and celebrities. KinoPoisk is really 2 sites rolled into 1. On one hand, it is a large repository of factual information about movies, such as actors directors, quotes, summaries and so on. On the other hand, KinoPoisk is Russia's most influential and trusted brand in movie reviews. It is Russia's 16th largest web property overall. It had a worldwide audience of 18.6 million users according to comScore, with 100 million users ratings and 3 million viewer ratings added every month. With the addition of KinoPoisk, Yandex will be able to provide more comprehensive replies to users queries, and will be able to build a robust recommendation system using this machinery in technology in the vast database of users reviews found on on KinoPoisk site.

And finally, let me tell you about the previously announced agreements with Mail.ru. We began powering their paid search results only on July 1st, and I believe we are off to an excellent start here. Alex Shulgin will provide you slightly more details on his remarks.

Turning to guidance, in terms of revenue outlook for this year, we are currently expecting to come near the high-end of the previously announced range of 34% to 38%. And with this, let me pass the mic to Alex Shulgin, our CFO.

Alexander Shulgin

Thank you, Arkady and thank you all for joining us today. In the third quarter of 2013, Yandex's consolidated revenues increased 40% year-on-year to RUB 10.2 billion. On the like for like basis, our total revenues grew 43%. Contextual or text-based advertising accounted for 92% of total revenues in Q3 and demonstrated a healthy growth of 43% year-on-year. Yandex owned and operated websites constituted 69% of total revenue, and grew 33% year-on-year. Our advertising network demonstrated year-on-year gross of 82%. As you would recall, starting July 1, 2013, we began to follow base search results on Mail.ru properties. This partnership increased contribution of ad network revenues to 22%, of the total revenues in Q3, compared to 16% in Q2 2013, again on the like for like basis. Display advertising accounted for 8% of our revenues in Q3 and grew 35% year-on-year. On July 4, we announced the completion of our joint venture with Sberbank. In Q3, our online payment commission revenue includes just 4 days of Yandex money operations. And going forward, the comings of our 25% stake in the Yandex Money JV, will flow through the other income line. Our advertising network tax will run 120%, faster than our network revenues overall as we added Mail.ru. Distribution tax grew 46%, also faster than our own and direct revenue. The increase in distribution tax as percentage of O&O revenue was approximately 75 basis points year-on-year, while mobile tax was roughly flat year-on-year. On a sequential basis, however, distribution tax was up only about 10 basis points. Total tax increased 83% year-on-year. Tax-based revenue growth was driven by increase in the the number of paid clicks, both on the own and direct website and on the network front. Paid clicks grow on owned and direct websites was driven by increase in ad coverage, CTR improvements and changes in ad layout implemented earlier this year. Growth in the number of paid clicks on the network front was in large parts driven by Mail.ru. Cost per click decreased 5% year-on-year. Now, turning to our cost structure. Our total operating and cost and expenses excluding traffic pollution cost and depreciation and amortization expense grew 38% in Q3. Excluding stock-based compensation and other non-cash items, our costs grew 37%. As you know, but somehow cost remained our largest cost item. In Q3, we added 393 employees, of which 269 were in product development. Our total personnel cost increased 38% year-on-year in Q3 and was 18% of revenue. And our depreciation and amortization expense for the quarter increased 25%. Our adjusted EBITDA grew at 28% year-on-year and our adjusted EBITDA margin was 43%. The decline in margins on year-over-year basis was a result of inclusion of Mail.ru, and more linear advertising spend for 2013 compared to 2012 levels. As you recall, in 2012 much more of our advertising budget was spent in the first quarter. This quarter, the intake from foreign exchange effect on our net margins was negligible, only RUB 2 million loss related to the ability top eliminate assets and liabilities in our balance sheet. As rubles transferred from 32.7, as of June 30, 2013 to 32.3 on September 30, 2013. Our effective income tax rate was 13.5% on a GAAP basis. The decrease was mainly due to one of nontaxable gain from the 75% stake of the Yandex.Money, that added to RUB $2 billion net income. Adjusted for this one off item, our effective tax rate would have been 21.3%. Adjusted net income grew 41%, and adjusted fixed income margin was 31%. Our Q3 CapEx was RUB 1.7 billion or 17% of revenue. Year-to-date, or CapEx represents 12% of revenue. As we mentioned on our previous calls, CapEx is usually not spread evenly across quarters, and we expect our CapEx an annual basis to be at the lower end of our previous guidance of 15% to 18% of total revenue. Turning to the balance sheet, we ended the quarter with $982 million in cash and equivalents. To update you on the previously announced share buyback program, inception to date, we purchased 6.6 million shares. Turning to the guidance, we expect revenue growth to be at the high-end of the previously announced 34% to 38% range. And we currently expect the amount of our new deal, to have a negative 100 basis points impact on EBITDA margins on the full-year basis. And now, I will turn call over to the operator for the Q&A session.

Question-and-Answer Session

Operator

[Operator Instructions] The first question comes from the line of Lloyd Walmsley.

Lloyd Walmsley - Deutsche Bank AG, Research Division

Was just wondering the high-end of the guidance range for the full year would imply a 4Q deceleration to about 38% ex-payments by my math from the 43% you just delivered. So just wondering if there is any reason to expect a deceleration like that or if it's just conservatism? And then as a follow-up, it looked like you were able to fulfill or sell, but increased inventory from Mail without any issue at all, and continue to grow O&O pretty strongly? Do you feel like there is a lot of comp demand as you add more inventory whether that's through network partners or paid click growth that you can continue to just see strong growth on the top line as that inventory comes online?

Alexander Shulgin

Lloyd, this is Alexander. I'll take your question. So with what I said, we expect the full year revenue to be close to the higher, and along guidance, we want to be realistic and prudent about when providing the guidance so that we can deliver on it. We also see the relative growth of production due to decline in Q2, it was only about 1.2% and we've also heard from some source that the accretive and [indiscernible] environment becomes tougher for some customers or some industries like for example, B2B industries or automobile. So, given our strong position in Internet advertising market and robust macro trends that drive growth of the Internet and Internet spent, we do not feel anything negative yet, in our business however, Yandex is multi-related from the Russian economy. And if the negative trends continue, our gross rates will be impacted as well, but as I said, we should keep deliver the strong set of results and the business remains strong. So, it's combination of some concerns about macro and intention to provide realistic prudent guidance.

Operator

The next question comes from Alex Balakhnin.

Alexander Balakhnin - Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Research Division

Good afternoon from Goldman Sachs. I have 2 questions. The first is on Yandex.Market. The change of former, can you please update us on how many merchants you were able to sign off for the experiment, and specifically what categories are they working, is it like any skewed team sheet of the categories or you have a more or less even categories distribution of the merchants? And, my second question is I just want to get clarification on the paid clicks you mentioned that for all know, it's comparable to the average paid click growth for the group. And I just wanted to check if I understood this correctly? So I would say that O&O paid clicks growth was around 50% year-on-year? Just doesn’t add up with addition of Mail. If you can clarify here, this will be helpful?

Arkady Volozh

This is Arkady Volozh Yandex.Market. So far we have over a 100 shops, which have already claims during the new format. And we have over a 1000 other shops interested in joining.

Alexander Balakhnin - Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Research Division

And categories?

Arkady Volozh

Actually, I don't know exactly we were selecting the best quality shops for this program first. Only those who have feature highest rating. And, I think it's mostly consumer electronics and that stuff.

Alexander Shulgin

Alex, this Alexander. I will take your second question about paid clicks. So we disclosed the gross rate of the total paid clicks for the business, but this time we also wanted to particularly highlight that there was also strong growth in clicks on home integrated websites, close to the 50% figure. And, we're very happy about that because it helps us to rely on interest of Yandex and our advertisers by providing more quality traffic to our customers, we improve their ROI's and therefore, eventually they would be more interested to spend their budgets on social advertising on Yandex.

Alexander Balakhnin - Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Research Division

Thanks, so much that's very clear. And just a follow-up on my first question. Was this 100 merchant signed up and 1000 interested, do you see that they are capable to provide a sufficient user experience in terms of deliverability and availability of goods. So you think that with 100, already signed up, you will be able to secure and improve user experience?

Arkady Volozh

Well, it is a multistage rollout of the product. And, we actually hope to have it fully ready for operations by next spring. And, this is just the first stage, and the first 100 is enough to test the model that's all we need. Of course, we need all the Yandex.Market is still there, it's still on, and nothing changes from that side.

Operator

Your next question comes from the line of Anna Lepetukhina.

Anna Lepetukhina - Sberbank Investment Research

My first question is kind of can you share please what are your plans in online video services? I mean, you acquired KinoPoisk, but then there were also reports that you're looking to expand and to start offering video services? I know that it's all rumors and probably you don't call on speculations, but maybe you can provide some color? And my second also question is on expenses. As a result of the launch of Yandex.Market in November, do you plan some aggressive advertising campaign, and should we expect increase -- additional increase in marketing expenses as a result of this launch?

Arkady Volozh

I will try to pick up the first question about video on KinoPoisk. So Russia is one of the most active, Russian audience is the most active in Europe in video consumption as you know. The KinoPoisk position is just -- for now is just the vertical, which helps us to better answer the queries in this area. KinoPoisk is the best positioned resource to have the all the answers in everything around movies and video. So, we acquired it first of all just to provide best information in this sector. We cannot comment on other speculations on video, but we're looking into the area there actually.

Alexander Shulgin

This is Alex. You'd like me to take the second question. So on the advertising spend, we will, of course, support all our good new product launches with appropriate marketing and advertising support. However, as I said, advertising spend this year is more evenly allocated between quarters, and we think we have appropriate funds like we did before. Without any substantial increase spends compared to last year. So, the growth rate will be more and more direct in central marketing before compared to Q3.

Anna Lepetukhina - Sberbank Investment Research

Can I just, then ask a follow-up. As a result of these, previously you didn’t give guidance kind of you indicated that we can expect margins to be somewhat flat, is it something that we still can expect or kind of it has somehow changed the following the addition of Mail.ru [indiscernible] advertising?

Alexander Shulgin

Mail.ru deal will certainly have an impact on our adjusted EBITDA margins. For the full year, we expect about 100 basis points negative impact because we generate lots of incremental revenue, yet, we have to pay the TAC for this year. On a quarterly perspective, in Q3 and going forward in Q4 as well, the impact would be as we estimated currently about 200 basis points. So, barring the Mail.ru deal our intention for Q3 adjust EBITDA margins on the same level as last year remains unchanged. As always said, but again as always said, given that it is strategically important project that requires one off the incremental investment, it could have an impact in any given quarter. Yet, we just to give you some data points, we said that we expect the full year revenue gross to be a bit higher and allow guidance range closer to 58%. We also had the strong search results in Q3. And there is some negative impact from the Mail.ru deal.

Operator

The next question comes from the line of Boris Vilidnitsky.

Boris Vilidnitsky - Barclays Capital, Research Division

Two questions from me. First, are you guys already making plans for 2014, and if so I'd love to hear some initial thoughts there? And second, something we ask every quarter, the cash on the balance sheet, if you guys have any updates there?

Alexander Shulgin

Boris, thanks for the question. Yes, as I said, we have close to $1 billion of cash and equivalents in our balance sheet. We run the share buyback program and we already purchased 6.6 million shares. So, the shareholder return was about $200 million. We expect to fulfill this program by the end of March next year. According to our [indiscernible] plan. Beyond that, it's up to the board to decide on the appropriate news and if to return cash to shareholders.

Boris Vilidnitsky - Barclays Capital, Research Division

Thank you. And anything for 2014?

Alexander Shulgin

And 2014, we have a policy. We provide guidance on 2014, on each fiscal year at the Q4 conference call, so you guys will have to wait until that point in time.

Operator

The next question comes from the line of Betty Martine.

Unknown Analyst

2 questions. One, the first one is just more of a clarification question on Yandex.Money. We do have this adjustment number just target of 552 million from 2012, just wondering, if you can give a number from January to July for 2013 to adjust, to figure out exactly what this 38% guidance is. That's the first question, the second question is really a follow-up to earlier question on this Yandex.Market's cost-per-action model, and really about what -- can you give any color about what types of merchants are these 100 merchants that have already signed up, are they the specialist retailers, are they local retailers. I mean if I just think about you mentioned something about consumer electronics, we also look at consumer electronics sector in Russia, and the only trading company there, I mean operating margins are very low. If you're talking about 1% payment for company like INvideo that's like 25% of their operating profit last year? That would be just quite significant. I'm just wondering, is there some kind of character of the merchants that you're dealing with, that we should be aware of?

G. Gregory Abovsky

This is Greg. Thank you very much for your questions. The first one is easier to answer which is year-to-date. Yandex.Money looks like it generated about RUB 394 million from revenue. And our guidance of 34% to 38% -- to be at the higher end of 34% to 38% as in a like for like basis. So, it excludes any impact from the addition of or removal of Yandex.Money from our results. So, this is the perimeter of Yandex as it is today compared to the perimeter of Yandex as it was a year ago. So, it's completely like for like. And the question of Yandex.Market, and why does it -- why is it an attractive value proposition. First of all, in the context of global marketplaces, 1% is actually an extremely attractive price point. And it was chosen specifically to draw a large number of potential merchants to the site, to embrace the platform. While, obviously each company keep its take rates under wraps, it's sort of well known that eBay's take rates are in the 8% to 10% range and, people estimate that other players are in that neighborhood so 1% by comparison is very low. Furthermore, like we said, it alligns our interests much better with the interest of the merchants because they only pay us if they have made a sale. Does that answer your question?

Unknown Analyst

Yes. It does. But that I just want a follow-up on there. Is your expectation, and the way look at this, is this a real incremental revenue opportunity or how much of this is just kind of a channel shift from what it was previously, the same merchants would have been advertising on your site and now are talking about revenue sharing? Or is this a true incremental revenue stream?

G. Gregory Abovsky

Yes, very good question. Look, obviously we will have to wait and see to see how successful this product is before we can answer that question fully. The intention is that it increases the velocity of transactions on Yandex.Market's site. As Arkady mentioned, the shopping cart abandonment and ease of use, is the primary targets here, and then secondly, it's alignment of interest between us and the merchants. We believe both of those factors should contribute to higher velocity of goods sold.

Operator

The next question comes from the line of Ulyana Lenvalskaya.

Ulyana Lenvalskaya - UBS Investment Bank, Research Division

Thank you very much for the presentation. Could you please update us on the Turkish project. Would you expect this to continue next year, and what is the current status there?

Arkady Volozh

Well, my question, my favorite. We continue operating in Turkey. Since last call, our market share increased a little bit despite the fact that we stopped all the advertising activities and didn't increase any distribution channels there. The audience is still with us. We are still their largest domestic site in terms of audience there. And, now, we started actually our tactic there is to start or launching the first serious products which are really unique for the markets, not just [indiscernible] products as was a launched previously. The last launch was the Yandex.Navigator, which we launched couple of weeks ago. And since that time, it has become a still is the number 1 by downloading all the app stores, Android and Apple App Store. And we actually doubled the number of TACs and so on. And it was extremely well accepted by the market. We're also continue improving our search quality and we will be launching several more products this year. We launched a shopping vertical there in September, which differentiates our search. So, we continue pushing there. I will say that we'd plan to continue investments in Turkey during 2014. And we have pretty good results for that.

Ulyana Lenvalskaya - UBS Investment Bank, Research Division

And we should not expect you to give up. My second question, is about.

Arkady Volozh

We're not planning to spend much more than we do. So.

Ulyana Lenvalskaya - UBS Investment Bank, Research Division

Can I have another question? What is current share of mobile searches in your revenue and the number of searches for it?

Alexander Shulgin

Ulyana. This is Alexander, let me take this question, so in our total [indiscernible] about 15% from apps and mobile devices include on, traditional phones, smartphones and tablets and the revenue contribution is about 11%, a bit lower.

Ulyana Lenvalskaya - UBS Investment Bank, Research Division

And there's a number for third quarter, right?

Alexander Shulgin

Yes, this is related to the third quarter.

Operator

The next question comes from line of Alexander Vengranovich.

Alexander Vengranovich - OTKRITIE Securities Ltd., Research Division

Actually, 1 question on KinoPoisk, as far as I understand, so you've already acquired the company, and that will be impacting your financials in the fourth quarter. So I was just wondering, whether the FX of KinoPoisk position is already included in your financial projection for this year, this is because of as far as I understand, it is quite a significant category with a quietly significant average number from monthly users, we should be sure drive your revenues significantly, and that would your [indiscernible] not sure with the partners? So, can you please give us some update on this? And with regards to [indiscernible] ,your partner TAC so as we've seen in the third quarter on the back of Mail contract the share of partner TAC in partner raising has increased substantial. So, I'm I getting it right that this 70% share of TAC in the revenues is sustainable going forward and you will really have that contract with Neil?

Alexander Shulgin

Alexander, thanks for the question. This is Alexander speaking. So on KinoPoisk, this website has a very big audience, that's correct. But, from the course or revenue perspective, compared to Yandex, the impact would be minimal in Q4. We acquired this website primarily as important search category and search vertical to provide better quality answers for these type of queries. The revenue share that you see now is obviously I think it's sustainable going forward. Increase was attributable to Mail.ru, revenue sharing turns result, other partners remain unchanged.

Alexander Vengranovich - OTKRITIE Securities Ltd., Research Division

On KinoPoisk just a follow-up. Are you planning to sell contract season pricing on this using KinoPosk kind of platform for this?

Alexander Shulgin

Yes, absolutely. KinoPoisk, as we discussed, has big audience and therefore where we use it as a platform, publisher for text business.

Alexander Vengranovich - OTKRITIE Securities Ltd., Research Division

So you expect that most of the effect will come in next year and effect for this quarter will be not very big?

Arkady Volozh

Yes. Exactly implementation of all advertising technology plus some other things we plan to implement on this website will have more visible impact going next year, not in Q4.

Operator

There is a follow-up question from Alexander Balakhnin.

Alexander Balakhnin - Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Research Division

I wanted to ask you on the accelerated [indiscernible] search engine results pay just to 26% in the quarter, apart from the mobile traffic, coming from a higher market share, is there anything else contributing to the acceleration of the SERPs? And my second question little bit of follow-up to the KinoPoisk questions, the fastest-growing advertising segment online as, is online video. And, could you just share a little bit, what is your strategy to deal with on your presence there and how KinoPoisk or Yandex video or anything fits your strategy to build the presence in online video advertising?

G. Gregory Abovsky

This is Greg. On the question of SERPs. Obviously, there is a multiple things that went into that number. It reflects both obviously rapid growth of mobile SERPs as well as good growth on the stop queries as well. In terms of our plans for online video, as you've seen currently we've decided to purchase KinoPoisk to really strengthen our vertical search there. Obviously, there will be some component of video ads on KinoPoisk for pre-rolling things like that. But beyond that, we have no -- nothing to comment on in terms of other plans for video advertising and video sites.

Operator

There are no further questions at this time, sir. Now I'll turn the conference back to you.

G. Gregory Abovsky

All right, thank you, everyone for joining us on our Q3 earnings call, and we look to forward to speaking with you at our Q4 call, later -- actually in 2014. Thank you so much.
