Project Description

NBD Bank (NBD) is planning to raise a senior A/B loan of up to USD 20 million, of which USD 5 million (A loan) will be the EBRD portion and up to USD 15 million (B loan) will be syndicated to commercial banks. This is expected to take place over the coming months and is subject to market conditions.

The project is aimed to assist NBD in raising its first international syndicated loan and increasing the number of its partners in the international capital market, which will contribute to develop and diversify NBD’s funding base going forward, as the bank has so far been largely reliant on IFI funding. The proceeds will be used for the purpose of on-lending to micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises.

Transition Impact

This project will further enhance the transition impact made by EBRD to date by facilitating the development of the strong regional MSME bank in the Volga district and hence - increase of the financial intermediation in the MSME sector in this economically important district of Russia. The proposed project will assist NBD to: a) diversify its funding base by attracting a first international syndicated loan; b) reduce refinancing risk by securing a longer term amortising facility; c) further enhance its competitive position in the local market by increasing availability of longer-term funding to MSMEs.
