IDH plans to finance the transaction through a combination of existing cash and committed debt facilities. The debt package includes the $45m facility secured from IFC in May 2021, and an additional $15m IFC syndicated facility from Mashreq Bank.

The transaction is subject to regulatory approval.

Ali Khalpey, CEO of EFG Hermes Frontier, said: “This marks EFG Hermes’ first inbound transaction into Pakistan, and showcases our ability to connect our clients across our markets.”
