LOLC Group subsidiary, LOLC Finance PLC (LOFC) has signed a loan agreement with Swedfund, the Swedish Government’s Development Finance Institution (DFI) to receive a total of $ 10 m in a deal facilitated by UK and US based Emerging Markets Global Advisory Ltd. (EMGA). 

As a front-runner in the Sri Lankan financial landscape, this deal represents another milestone for LOFC in taking the initiative to further expand on strategic international alliances with innovative financing solutions.

Commenting on the transaction, LOLC Group Treasurer Rohan Perera said, “LOLC Group has fostered longstanding partnerships with many DFIs for whom we are considered the preferred conduit in achieving their development goals, so we are pleased to further reinforce this commitment by partnering with Swedfund, the renowned development finance arm of the Swedish Government. Our foreign partners have offered us invaluable assistance ranging from capacity building to exposure to global standards over the years, which has allowed us to set the industry standard, particularly in light of the Group’s growing footprint. 

“We would also like to convey our appreciation to EMGA as we continue our relationship, for successfully structuring a new foreign financing opportunity that will complement our expansion plans and enable us to harness our strengths and deliver on our vision for inclusive, sustainable growth in the Micro and SME sector.”

The Swedfund loan amount matches the funds needed for the delisting. If you divide the loan amount of USD 10Bn (Rs.1.8Bn) by the number of public holding shares, it comes to approx Rs.6.40 per share. Around Rs.6.00 per share was the theoratical delisting price
