The transaction structure combines features of both project finance and corporate finance, and is designed so that the structure can be used in all of the different jurisdictions and at a relatively low cost. Significantly, the strength of the portfolio, and the resultant blended credit profile, allows for long-term financings to occur in emerging markets that have had only minimal exposure to project finance transactions. The financing was solely underwritten by OPIC.

OPIC was established as an agency of the U.S. government in 1971. It helps U.S. businesses invest overseas, fosters economic development in new and emerging markets, complements the private sector in managing risks associated with foreign direct investment, and supports U.S. foreign policy. Because OPIC charges market-based fees for its products, it operates on a self-sustaining basis at no net cost to taxpayers.
