Bank TuranAlem gets two awards from the leading international magazines: "The deal of the year - 2006" from the TRADE FINANCE magazine and "The best deals - 2006" from the GLOBAL TRADE REVIEW magazine12.04.2007 / Press-service
The awards are given for a unique financing structure of the Silicium Kazakhstan Company’s project which is aimed at construction of metallurgic works to produce metal silicon in Karaganda region.
The loan for BTA was organized by Deutsche Bank. The total value of the loan which was given in two tranches comprised €65.000.000. The first tranche as an advance payment given for seven years was €8.000.800, the second €56.200.000 tranche for 10 years was given under guarantee of Export Credit Agency (ECA) Euler Hermes.
The project was recognized unprecedented for the Kazakh banking sector on several reasons: to implement this project Euler Hermes increased credit limit for Kazakhstan from €70.000.000 to €150.000.000 and the amount of the "buyer’s loan" which was €56.200.000 exceeded Euler Hermes’ limit for one Kazakh transaction.
"The €65.000.000 loan organized by Deutsche Bank for BTA in November 2006 is a remarkable event for Kazakhstan – said Ruper Saier, the editor of the Global Trade Review. – This deal means extension of loan periods for Kazakh banks with BTA as a leader and increase of investors’ goodwill to the economic and political stability of Kazakhstan. BTA gave opportunity for many other Kazakh and Central Asian banks to follow its way".
"The loan terms are adjusted to the peculiarities and the project business plan and let us provide the customer with a long grace period and a possibility to capitalize interest rate for the work’s construction period. The project is innovative, up-to-date, strategically and socially important for Kazakhstan economy", said Timur Sabirbayev, head of International and Trade Finance Division of the Bank.
