The EBRD is considering a Senior Syndicated Loan to Promsvyazbank (PSB) in the aggregate amount of approximately USD 250 million under an A/B loan structure for general corporate purposes (incl. trade finance transactions) (“the Project”).
The transition impact of the Project is expected to be achieved in the following main areas:
Financial intermediation and support of real economy via a systemic national bank. The project is aimed at strengthening PSB’s lending capacity in the current environment and diversifying its funding base.
- Supporting the recovery of the Russian syndicated loan market which was affected by the financial crisis. The proposed syndicated loan would be one of the first such transactions for a private Russian bank since the beginning of the crisis, sending an important positive signal to the markets and contributing to their recovery.
Promsvyazbank is the 10th largest bank in Russia and the second largest locally owned private universal bank with a network covering over 90 Russian cities. The bank is owned by local shareholders Messrs. Alexey and Dmitry Ananiev owning PromsvyazCapital B.V. (72.93% in total), Commerzbank Auslandsbanken Holding AG, Germany (15.32%) and EBRD (11.75%).

- A portion for the account of EBRD of up to USD 100 million and
