5 November, 2020 Ameriabank has entered into long-term subordinated loan agreement with Symbiotics SA for USD 15 million, with possible increase up to USD 25 million.

The new funds will help us to not only sustain loan book growth but also provide much needed support to the Armenian businesses in these challenging times. The Facility arrives just in time, when the regulator encouraged the banks to attract capital by means of Tier 2 instruments, and we plan to raise more Tier 2 Capital still this year. This is also an important milestone en route to our IPO and I thank again our partners for their continuous support and trust in Ameriabank”.

“Together with our anchor investor in this deal, C-Quadrat, we are glad to support our long-standing partner Ameriabank with Tier II capital alongside the global pandemic and look forward to jointly ensuring uninterrupted access to finance for the local micro – small and medium sized enterprises in this economically challenging period”, noted Sofia Tulupova, Symbiotics Co- regional Manager for ECA and MENAP.
