The main factors which the Group takes into account when considering the issue on impairment of receivables are their past due status and collectability.  As a result, the Group presented the above aging analysis of receivables. Impairment of receivables was assessed based on past due status of such receivables.

Neither past due nor impaired receivables represent receivables from companies and subscribers with no credit ratings assigned but their reliability is determined by the Company on the basis of long-term cooperation representing those companies which have a good credit history.  The Company’s management believes that neither past due nor impaired receivables in the amount of Tenge 10,110,622 thousand will be fully repaid in 2013.
