Project Description

The proposed project consists of Senior loan of up to RUB 5 billion to leasing company OOO Inpromleasing to expand its operations by providing leasing services to major Russian private rail operators.

The proposed project will finance the purchase of rolling stock to be leased under finance leasing contracts.

Transition Impact

In this context, the transition impact potential of this project is expected to derive from:

(i) Increased Transparency/corporate standards: Company would publish the annual financial results, its detailed management structure and statement of its corporate goals on the Company’s website, which would represent an increased level of transparency compared to other players in the industry and is expected to have demonstration effects in the medium term;

(ii) Increased competition: rolling stock leasing is a relatively new and dynamically developing segment in Russia, dominated by leasing companies affiliated to financial institutions or industrial groups. The Project will allow an independent company in this sector to expand its business and increase competition in the rolling stock leasing market;

(iii) Promoting private entrepreneurship and reforms in the Russian railway sector: the Bank’s funding will result in the increase of the privately owned rolling stock in Russia and the expansion of the operations of the private rail operators; by supporting these developments the Bank plays a visible role in the actual implementation of the Russian railway sector reforms a central objective of which is substantially increasing private sector participation in the operation of the Russian railways.
