Georgia Capital : ADB to Invest up to $40 Million in GGU Green Bonds to Upgrade Water, Sanitation in Georgia

07/27/2020 | 08:03am EST

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) announced an investment of up to $20 million in green bonds to be issued by Georgia Global Utilities JSC (GGU), with proceeds to upgrade water supply and sanitation in Tbilisi and nearby municipalities, and to refinance debt of renewable energy and water operations.

ADB will also administer a further investment of up to $20 million in the bonds by Leading Asia's Private Infrastructure Fund (LEAP).

The investments form part of a $250 million issue by GGU of 5-year green bonds-Georgia's first green bond issuance-that will be listed on the Global Exchange Market of the Irish Stock Exchange. GGU is a holding company with two major business lines involving renewable energy and water supply and sanitation, the latter operated primarily through its subsidiary Georgian Water and Power LLC-the largest privately-owned utility company in Georgia, serving around 1.4 million customers.

'ADB's assistance will help ensure that communities in and around Tbilisi are supplied with water 24 hours per day, and that water supply and sanitation systems in those urban centers function properly,' said Director of Infrastructure Finance, South Asia, Central Asia, and West Asia at ADB's Private Sector Operations Department Shantanu Chakraborty. 'ADB's anchor investment will demonstrate to potential investors the compelling investment opportunities in financing water and clean energy initiatives in Georgia's private sector.'

Georgia Capital Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Irakli Gilauri said: 'I am delighted to announce that GGU has issued the first-ever green notes from Georgia. The transaction was met with considerable interest from investors, being able to access capital even during the current unprecedented times. We are thankful to ADB for playing a key role by acting as one of the anchor investors for the notes.'

GGU is a wholly owned subsidiary of JSC Georgia Capital, which is 100%-owned by Georgia Capital PLC, a London Stock Exchange listed entity.

A substantial part of ADB's subscription will be earmarked for capital expenditure in connection with GGU 's water supply and sanition business in Georgia, providing the company with short and medium-term capital to upgrade the water and sanitation network and supply sustainable and affordable water to consumers.

LEAP was established in 2016 with a $1.5 billion capital commitment from the Japan International Cooperation Agency. It is focused on delivering high quality and sustainable private sector infrastructure projects that reduce carbon emissions, improve energy efficiency, and offer accessible and affordable health care, education, and communication services to ADB's developing member countries.

ADB is committed to achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty. Established in 1966, it is owned by 68 members-49 from the region.
