Project Description

MDM-bank (MDM) is planning to raise a senior A/B loan of USD 225 million, of which USD 75 million (A loan) will be the EBRD portion and USD 150 million (B loan) will be syndicated to commercial banks.

The project aims to support the bank in refocusing its business towards retail banking and private sector Micro, Small and Medium Size Enterprises (MSME). It will assist MDM in raising a syndicated loan of longer maturity than achieved to date by the bank.

Transition Impact

  • The proposed project will promote financial intermediation in Russia by using the broad regional network of MDM to reach Russian MSME and retail customers with longer tenor funding.
  • The proposed project is expected to foster competition in the banking sector by giving borrowers in different regions across Russia greater choice in accessing banking products which best fit their needs.
  • EBRD’s involvement in the syndicated loan transaction will further enhance the bank’s image with its potential lenders and facilitate MDM’s access to longer-term commercial funding.
