The project envisages that the EBRD will acquire a shareholding stake in Orgresbank of up to 15% through the acquisition of the newly issued shares of Orgresbank in the third quarter of 2006. The EBRD’s equity investment will help Orgresbank to implement its development strategy which includes regional expansion and the development of small and medium enterprise lending.

The transaction will therefore promote the availability of financial services to small- and medium-enterprises in Moscow and in the regions where Orgresbank operates and will operate in the near future. The EBRD will also seek to support Orgresbank in strengthening its institutional capacity and enhancing its corporate governance.
