Project Description
The full amount of USD 13 million (USD 3 million equity and USD 10 million Mezzanine loan) will be used for a combination of working capital financing, warehouses/servicing facilities and for the engine rebuild faciliity. 50% of the mezzanine loan will be used to purchase equipment for rental and leasing purposes. This transaction is a co-investment with The Mongolia Opportunities Fund (MOF), which is being managed by Mongolia Opportunities Partners. This co-investment provides an opportunity for FMO to participate in an attractive company with significant growth potential. Mining development has boosted the demand for heavy machinery and mining equipment. The development impact is excellent, given the provision of long-term risk-bearing capital by DFIs in challenging times and circumstances. The transaction is the first co-investment opportunity with MOF which has a perfect fit with FMO's strategy to provide direct investments alongside the PE Funds we have already invested in.
