Pioneer Transaction on the Romanian Syndication Market: Syndicated Loan of EUR 60 Million For Hidroconstructia SA, Granted by BRD Led Consortium, Including an Insurance Company
 
Hidroconstructia SA appointed BRD Groupe Societe Generale, its banking partner for over 50 years, to arrange in its favor a new syndicated revolving facility for EUR 60 million. The recently signed facilties will assure working capital financing needs and permit issuance of bank letters of guarantee related to construction contracts awarded to the company.
 
The consortium providing these new facilities is represented by BRD-Groupe Societe Generale, acting as mandated lead arranger, issuing bank, facility and security agent and by Allianz-Tiriac Asigurari. BRD- Groupe Societe Generale and Allianz-Tiriac Asigurari are acting together as Guarantor-Creditors for the letters of guarantee section. The implication of an insurance company within a syndicated facility is a pioneering event on the Romanian syndication market. The transaction is also among the few similar transactions in Europe which involved among the lenders a general insurance company acting in surety business. This new syndicated facility fits perfectly into shared values of both financial institutions of promoting innovative solutions to meet their clients’ needs and being the first movers on the financial markets they operate on.
 
The consortium was advised in concluding the transaction by law firms Clifford Chance Badea and Voicu & Filipescu.
