EFG Hermes Concludes Advisory on valU's First Securitized Bond Offering worth EGP 322.550 Million

Cairo, 13 September 2021

EFG Hermes, the leading financial services corporation in Frontier Emerging Markets (FEM), announced today that it successfully closed valU's first securitization issuance worth EGP 322.550 million as part of a wider EGP 2 billion securitization program approved by the FRA on 25 July 2021.

The bond is backed by a receivables portfolio of EGP 369 million assigned to EFG Hermes as the issuance's special purpose vehicle (SPV). The issuance received a Prime-1 rating, the highest among other Egyptian bond issuances according to Middle East Rating Services (MERIS).

Commenting on the issuance, Mostafa Gad, Co-Head of Investment Banking at EFG Hermes said: 'We are proud to be embarking on this first-of-its-kind securitization program for a Buy-Now, Pay-Later (BNPL) fintech platform such as valU - a cornerstone of the EFG Hermes NBFI platform. Having garnered significant interest from financial providers, the transaction's success also highlights our team's dedication to diversify our service offering in the debt space and to continue to drive growth for the Firm and the clients we serve.'

'The transaction comes at a key juncture for the company, where value-added services such as installment programs and fintech-enabled consumer finance facilities are in high demand. As Egypt's leading Buy-Now, Pay-Later (BNPL) fintech platform, valU has made tremendous strides in the years since inception, and we are thrilled to see it taking these kinds of strategic steps forward in its growth story,' said EFG Hermes' Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFI) platform CEO Walid Hassouna.

EFG Hermes acted as the sole financial advisor, sole transaction manager and book-runner, underwriter, and arranger on the issuance. Meanwhile, Suez Canal Bank acted as underwriter, AAIB acted as underwriter and custodian, Dreny & Partners legal advisor, and KPMG as auditor of the transaction.
