According to the bank's website, "Through Bangladesh Managed Account CV, FMO will invest in ACI Motors, a market leader in the distribution of agricultural machinery in Bangladesh, and the sole distributor/manufacturer of Yamaha motorbikes in the country. The Company was formed in 2007 with a vision to increase farm mechanization, and is a subsidiary of ACI Limited, a larger conglomerate with interests in pharmaceuticals, consumer goods and agribusiness.
FMO's investment will be used to replace bridge financing raised to build a local manufacturing/assembly plant and to provide working capital for the Company's financing scheme for agricultural equipment. FMO will thus support access to mechanization for farmers and help ACI Motors increase local value creation in the motorbike segment."
