The EBRD is providing an equity commitment of up to EUR 40 million to Resource Eastern European Equity Partners II LP (the "Fund"). The Fund will be the successor fund to Resource Eastern European Equity Partners I LP, to which the Bank committed to in 2009.
The Fund will seek to generate long-term capital appreciation through equity and equity-related investments in lower mid-market companies operating in Poland and other central and southeast European countries with a particular focus on those operating in the consumer goods sector (including the food and agribusiness sectors).
The transition impact of the proposed project will come from:
(i) demonstrating the attractiveness of private equity to investors
(ii) promoting best practices of corporate governance and business conduct in the Fund's portfolio companies.
