Impairment Tests for Goodwill

For the purposes of impairment testing, goodwill is allocated to the whole Moscow Exchange Group, which represents the lowest level at which the goodwill is monitored for internal management purposes.

As at December 31, 2014 the recoverable amount for the Group has been determined based on calculations of fair value less cost of disposal. Fair value is determined based on market capitalisation of the Group using quoted price on shares of the Group.

The resulted fair value less cost of disposal of the Group in amount of RUB 131 522 566 thousand exceeds the net carrying amount of its assets and liabilities.
