Project Description

On 28 July 2016 EBRD and JSC State Export-Import Bank of Ukraine (Ukreximbank) completed conversion of the existing US$ 250 million subordinated debt provided by the Bank to Ukreximbank into a US$ 200 million senior loan following a partial prepayment.

Transition Impact

The original subordinated debt was provided in 2009 to support the bank’s capitalisation and promote lending to the real economy. Having fulfilled its purpose in the first years, EBRD’s loan has largely exhausted its Tier II capital boosting capacity due to regulatory amortisation and reduced size of Ukreximbank’s Tier I capital. The conversion will improve(i) medium-term liquidity by evenly spreading the repayment profile and (ii) capital strength by reducing interest expense on the changed maturity and status of the exposure.  The EBRD’s continuing financial commitment to Ukrexim is demonstrated by ensuring a sustainable funding structure for an important systemic bank in Ukraine.
