TBC and EIB sign a GEL 90 million equivalent loan agreement

TBC Bank Group PLC ("TBC PLC") announces that its subsidiary, JSC TBC Bank ("TBC Bank"), has signed a loan agreement in the amount of GEL 90 million equivalent with the European Investment Bank (EIB). The funds are available to draw either in EUR, USD or GEL. The five year loan facility will be used primarily to finance micro, small and medium size businesses in Georgia and support the development of private enterprise.

Vakhtang Butskhrikidze, CEO, TBC Bank, commented:

"I am very pleased that over time we have built such a successful partnership with the European Investment Bank. This is TBC's first transaction in Georgian Lari with EIB, and is a testament to the truly close working relationship we have formed since the launch of our partnership in 2012. Local currency funding is of great importance for the Georgian financial sector as it allows to reduce dependence upon borrowing in foreign currencies. Local currency funding will protect business owners and households from direct exposure to exchange rate risk while it helps to de-dollarise TBC Bank's portfolio."
