In order to further facilitate improvements in the access to finance for SMEs, the EIF is to implement further changes to the terms and conditions set in the Call for Expression of Interest JER-004/4 (“Call”).

The maximum amount of the Revolving Credit Transaction to an individual Eligible SME shall be set by EIF and in such a manner as to allow the Portfolio to be sufficiently diversified. The maximum obligor concentration will be set in no case greater than “de minimis” amount equal to EUR 1,875 million (i.e. EUR 1,5 million divided by the Guarantee Rate).

This product feature was neither a selection nor evaluation criteria impacting the selection process of the Financial Intermediaries. Should you decide that you would like to participate in the Financial Instrument due to the above mentioned changes, please inform EIF by no later than 10/12/2012 by letter. In the event that you had decided not to apply earlier, any letter should provide justification of why this change would have changed your decision in relation to submitting an Expression of Interest for the Call.
