EBRD provides 307 million aid for SEE food company
LONDON: The EBRD is arranging a €307 million financing package for one of the biggest regional food producers in South East Europe, Atlantic Grupa. The package - the biggest syndicated deal in the region in corporate sector in 2012 – will support a strong regional corporation at times when the region is still recovering from crisis. Atlantic Grupa, which became a regional group with ERBD support, leads the way in energy management, corporate responsibility and governance. Atlantic Grupa is an existing client of the EBRD. The cooperation started in 2010 with the landmark acquisition of Droga Kolinska, one of the leading regional food and beverage producers in ex-Yugoslavia. The Bank supported acquisition with equity and mezzanine financing.
