Project scope and objective
The objective of the project is to increase access to finance, and in particular to mezzanine products, for medium-sized Mexican companies with growth potential. To that end, Mezzanine Mexico Uno, S.A.P.I. de C.V. SOFOM, ENR (“MMU”) will provide mezzanine finance to companies that are seeking new or different financing options from those traditionally offered in the local financial market, to support medium and long-term growth opportunities and improve productivity.
Through this project the Inter-American Investment Corporation (“IIC”) will provide a senior loan (revolving credit line) to MMU for up to MXN 420 million (approximately US$23 million). The expected size of MMU is of MXN 2,100 million (approx. US$115 million), estimated to be reached through loans to be provided by the IIC, the International Finance Corporation (“IFC”) and other senior lenders. The IIC will participate in a co-financing agreement with IFC and other senior lenders to provide funding to MMU, which in turn will offer mezzanine financing to medium-sized Mexican companies. Vector Partners, S.C. will serve as the manager of MMU. It is expected that MMU will have a life of 8 years including a 3 year investment period, both of which will have two 1-year extension option.
The project is aligned with the IDB Country Strategy with Mexico as it seeks to increase the financing level available for medium-sized companies through the support of financing alternatives to expand their access to credit. Moreover, the project is consistent with IIC’s business plan which establishes that the IIC will selectively promote projects related with investment funds that contribute to development, for instance, by supporting funds that provide long-term financing to medium-sized companies with growth potential.
