Project Description

The EBRD is considering granting a Subordinated Loan of RUB 572 million for inclusion into the capital base of TCB for regulatory CAR.

TCB has successfully grown its loan portfolio to the real economy in 2011 and therefore requires additional capital ahead of the original schedule. The Subordinated Loan is an efficient way to support TCB’s business development and achievement of transition benchmarks. This tier-2 capital will be included in the total capital of the bank allowing it to comply with the imperative Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) requirements under Russian Accounting Standards (RAS) while continuing granting loans to its real economy clients.

Transition Impact

The provision of a subordinated loan for inclusion into the capital of TCB strengthens TCB’s capital base and helps if to realize its expansion in the regions ahead of the original business plan, including in the MSME segment. TCB’s good regional coverage, wide client base and commitment to developing MSME lending will facilitate successful expansion of its MSME lending in its regions of operation.

The provision of the subordinated loan, together with continued EBRD’s equity participation in the bank, will also facilitate further improvements in the bank’s corporate governance, setting an example in this field to other banks active in the regions where TCB operates.

The Client

TCB is the 46th largest bank in Russia by total assets, with a traditional focus on mid-sized corporate clients and MSME, operating through 18 branches and 55 outlets covering 18 regions of Russia, serving around 25,000 corporate and more than 200,000 individual customers. TCB is to a large degree (42 %) owned by its management team. TCB has been an EBRD Partner Bank since 2003.
