Project Description
The EBRD is considering a financing package of up to USD 125 million to Emirates NBD's Egyptian subsidiary. The facility will comprise a subordinated loan to support the planned growth of the bank and the financing of SMEs in the local market. The loan will be disbursed in two tranches of USD 50 million and USD 75 million respectively. The second tranche is uncommitted. The subordinated debt will strengthen the capital base of Emirates NBD Egypt, a medium-sized, international commercial bank in a sector that remains dominated by state-owned banks (approximately 40% market share). The financing will also increase the availability of bank finance to private SMEs, an underserved market segment The project will be the first example of a subordinated loan provided by a third party on the Egyptian market and as such will introduce a new asset-class which has been supported by policy dialogue with the Central Bank of Egypt.
