- This transaction is unprecedented in its terms of the lending period. At a time when one of the serious challenges for the Belarusian banking system is raising foreign funding for a short term, as was mentioned by The National Bank of the Republic of Belarus previously, Belagroprombank during the implementation of the transaction focused on the term of the Syndicated Facility. The intention to attract long-term funding was successfully achieved. Long-standing partnership with the leading financial institutions of the region allowed Belagroprombank to be the first among the Belarusian banks to raise the Syndicated Facility 90% of which was granted for a period of 1.5 year with an option of extension for a subsequent similar term. – Belagroprombank’s press secretary comments. - The bank’s excellent reputation among foreign partners and steady financial indicators provided strong demand for participation in the transaction. The book was oversubscribed over three times compared to the initially announced amount of the facility. It is gratifying to emphasize that along with long-standing partners of Belagroprombank new financial institutions participated in the deal, which never had an experience of cooperation with Belarusian borrowers before. It is also revealing that such new participants have decided to stake in the debut deal with the 1.5-year tranche.
JSC "Belagroprombank" expresses its gratitude to all participants of the Syndicated Facility, congratulates with the successful closing of the deal and looks forward to the joint implementation of other significant projects in the future.
