EBRD provides EUR60 million guarantee to support lending by Ukraines PrivatBank

14.08.2023 13:22 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) Unfunded guarantee with EU green component will support EUR240 million of financing

EBRD guarantees EUR60 million to support lending to Ukraines agribusiness, critical industries

EBRD starts cooperation with state-owned PrivatBank via unfunded risk-sharing facility

Technical assistance and investment incentives funded by the European Union

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) starts a strategic cooperation with PrivatBank, Ukraine’s largest systemically important (nationalised in 2016), by issuing EUR60 million of risk-sharing instrument to support EUR240 million of newly originated loans to agribusiness and other critical industries in Ukraine.

Food security and the private sector are two of five areas of focus for EBRD support for wartime Ukraines real economy.

PrivatBank is fully state-owned and specialises in servicing retail and micro- small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). The EBRDs unfunded risk-sharing facility will help the bank to support more private companies operating in agri-related and other industries. It will also increase financial support to private businesses affected by the war, contributing to preserving their human capital, and stimulate the uptake of greener technologies.

The facility, composed of two elements, will back up to 50 per cent of the credit risk in PrivatBanks newly originated loans, subject to a portfolio cap of 50 per cent. The risk sharing project brings the total volume of the EBRDs enabled financing in Ukraine to EUR708 million since the start of the war.

At least 80 per cent of the facility falls under the EBRDs Resilience and Livelihoods Framework for Ukraine and neighbouring states, created as a response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine last year and designed to mitigate its economic impact by protecting the countrys resilience and preserving livelihoods.

Up to 20 per cent (EUR48 million) of risk-shared loans will support private MSMEs long-term investments in EU compliant and green technologies. Eligible sub-borrowers will also receive EU-funded technical assistance and investment incentives upon completion of their investment projects.

The EBRD, which has committed to raise its investment in Ukraine to EUR3 billion in 2022–23 in response to Russias war on the country, shares risk on its own investments there with donors and partners. In this case half of its risk from the new exposure will be mitigated by First Loss Risk Cover from the EBRD Crisis Response Special Fund.

As well as food security and the private sector, the EBRDs investment focus in wartime Ukraine is on energy security, vital infrastructure and trade. In addition to a resilience package for Ukraine and neighbouring countries affected by the war, the EBRD has pledged to help finance Ukraines reconstruction once conditions permit.

PrivatBank is fully owned by the state and is the largest systemically important bank in Ukraine with 23 per cent of market share by assets (US$ 15 billion) at the end of 2022. It specialises in servicing retail and MSME clients through a country-wide network of 1,100 branches and 5,000 ATMs.
