The EBRD is considering making an equity commitment of up to €17m to EuVECA Livonia Partners Fund I (the “Fund”), a closed end fund established as the first pan-Baltic fund domiciled in Latvia. The Fund targets €85m of total capital commitments and will be Livonia’s first institutional quality fund. It will provide growth and acquisition capital to small and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”) in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania (the “Baltics”) with a focus on operational value creation.
The transition impact of the proposed project will come in particular from the following areas:
Supporting the entrance of a new, independent fund manager and thereby supporting the market expansion of the private equity asset class in the Baltics
Facilitating improved access of SMEs in the Baltics to equity capital.
