Translated version of this PSD: Slovenian
An additional equity investment of EUR 9.6 million for the purchase of existing shares of Nova Ljubljanska banka d.d. ("NLB") in Slovenia, increasing the total EBRD investment in the Project to up to EUR 74 million. The original EBRD investment of EUR 64.4 million was made on 9 November 2018.
The Project supports an important privatisation in Slovenia, in response to the commitment of the Republic of Slovenia undertaken as part of the restructuring plan of NLB agreed with the European Commission in 2013 when the state aid contribution was approved, as later amended.
The proposal is expected to contribute to Resilient and Competitive qualities through the reduction of the state ownership in total banking assets and the development of alternative sources of financing through the capital market and unlocking NLB's value potential via private ownership that will permit NLB to exit the restructuring plan, enabling further balance sheet optimisation and operational efficiency improvement.

Text of the PIP
Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)
If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).
IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.
Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
