ZAO Raiffeisenbank has teamed up with Raiffeisen Bank International AG as one of mandated lead arrangers and bookrunners of a syndicated bi-currency loan to MDM-Bank equivalent to USD300 mn. Despite oversubscription MDM Bank decided against increase of the amount.

The facility is issued in two tranches: one equal to USD150 mn maturing in one year after the deal was signed, and a three-year amortised tranche in the same amount. The loan will finance trading operations of MDM-Bank’s customers. LIBOR/EURIBOR margin of the first tranche is 2.2 per cent p.a., and for the 3-year tranche it is 3.5 per cent p.a.
