Small Business Initiative: Investment Preparation for EU4Business - Financial Services

The Procurement Notice has been modified on 7 September 2016 - the changes are recorded in bold text.

Programme Description:

Small and medium-sized enterprises ("SMEs") constitute a significant share in the total legal entities in Ukraine. They make a considerable contribution to job creation and of a value added to the GDP. However, the SME segment in Ukraine has been facing structural problems. Since 2014 local banks have substantially reduced their lending appetite, as a result of which availability of debt and equity financing for SMEs has become extremely limited. At the same time Ukrainian SMEs lack understanding of the standards and procedures they would need to comply with the EU standards, and need to modernise their production processes and adopt new technologies and international best practice in order to compete successfully.

In light of the challenges facing Ukrainian SMEs, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD" or the "Bank") seeks to enhance their competitiveness by providing access to advisory services covering a wide range of areas, by increasing their access to finance through improved bankability and by financing directly those SMEs that have the greatest growth potential (the "Programme").

The expected outcome of the Programme is that up to 50 SMEs in Ukraine will benefit from the EBRD's direct financing. Direct financing means loans and equity by EBRD to creditworthy company, ca. 10 SMEs/year to benefit from that, ca. 50 SMEs during duration of the whole Programme, ca. EUR 100 mln total financing to be provided to these 50 SMEs subject to acceptable financial due diligence and /or IFRS restatement, among others.

The EBRD now wishes to engage consultants to assist with the pipeline preparation, project origination and implementation activities as well as post-investment monitoring and assistance.

Framework Agreements for the Programme

The EBRD intends to enter into Framework Agreements with at least three consultants (the "Framework Consultants" or the "Consultants") to enable the Bank to call upon a shortlist of pre-qualified firms, from which it can quickly and efficiently obtain reliable services. The Framework Agreements will establish, in advance, fee rates for experts, contract terms and procedures that will govern individual assignments (the "Assignments" or "Call-offs") to be required to implement the Programme. Under these Framework Agreements, the Bank will have the option, but not the obligation, to place individual Assignments with the selected Framework Consultants.

The Framework Consultants will be selected for individual Assignments in accordance with EBRD's Procurement Policies and Rules (PPR). The Bank may send to the Framework Consultant(s) specific Terms of Reference for the Assignment (the "Specific ToR"). The Specific ToR will include a description of the tasks to be performed, time-schedules and reporting instructions. The Framework Consultant(s) should respond by sending to the Bank a technical and financial proposal for the Assignment together with details of the expert(s) proposed to carry out the work. The Bank will then assess the response(s) and – subject to successful negotiations - issue a call-off notice (the "Call-Off Notice") for the individual Assignment to the selected Framework Consultant.

Description of Individual Assignments (Call-offs)

Consultancy services for individual Assignments are expected to include but not be limited to the following:

1. Financial analysis of management accounts and financial management system, which would include among other tasks:

Support for the Restructuring of Financial Sector of Ukraine

 | Published July 20, 2016  -  Deadline August 3, 2016
cpvs

Project Description:

A new Law on Financial Restructuring (LFR) was adopted by the Ukrainian Parliament (Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine”) on 14 June 2016 aimed at facilitating the systemic restructuring of non-performing loans (NPL) within the banking sector.

Under the LFR, the voluntary restructuring process will be administered by a technical secretariat (Secretariat), managed by the Independent Association of Banks of Ukraine (NABU) and tasked with processing and coordination of cases. The work of the Secretariat will be subject to the supervision of an oversight board (the Oversight Board), a coordination body tasked with organisation and conduct of the Kiev Approach. The Oversight Board will supervise the work of an arbitration committee (the Arbitration Committee), a body responsible for appointing arbitrators to assist with the resolution of specific disputes among debtors and creditors arising under the LFR.

Secretariat

The Secretariat will assist with administration of LFR cases and will be run by the NABU. It will be responsible for a number of tasks including:

management of all administrative and procedural issues related to the LFR procedure, including registering applications for LFR and supporting the work of the Arbitration Committee in respect of any arbitral proceedings;

preparation and submission of progress and performance reports to the Oversight Board regarding conduct of LFR cases;

organisation and dissemination of information to parties participating in LFR proceedings; and

development of recommendations concerning the LFR proceedings for participating parties.

Since the LFR procedure is entirely new and there is a lack of out-of-court restructuring culture in Ukraine, the Secretariat would benefit from external expert guidance from the outset on the new procedure and capacity-building for its members.

Arbitration Committee

The LFR provides for creation of the Arbitration Committee and relies on the use of binding arbitration under The Law of Ukraine "On International Commercial Arbitration". This law is well-established in Ukraine and arbitral awards are recognized by Ukrainian courts. The debtor consents to arbitration of any disputes in its restructuring application and the banks may submit to arbitration where they sign a ‘Framework Agreement’ or ‘Restructuring Plan’ (each as defined in the LFR). The Arbitration Committee manages the dispute resolution process and is supported by qualified arbitrators.

The purpose of this Project is to assist with the establishment of the Secretariat and the Arbitration Committee and capacity building.

This will involve:

1) providing guidance on all matters related to the establishment of the Secretariat and the Arbitration Committee at the outset of the project;

2) Assistance with drafting an operation plan for both organisations and any template documents required to initiate a procedure before the Secretariat or the Arbitration Committee;

3) providing assistance to both organisations on a regular basis. This assistance shall include but it is not limited to guidance for the NABU on an effective financing structure for the Secretariat and the Arbitration Committee to be implemented following completion of the EBRD project;

4) Drafting of restructuring principles in line with international standards and best practices;

5) Developing and implementing training for representatives of the Secretariat and, if needed, the Arbitration Committee to ensure effective implementation of the framework.


Assignment Description

The Bank now intends to engage an individual expert (the Consultant) to conduct the above activities aiming at supporting the NABU to implement the LFR (the Assignment).

The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:

Activity 1: Operation plan and templates for the Secretariat and Arbitration Committee

Work closely with the NABU and provide guidance on all matters related to the establishment of the Secretariat and the Arbitration Committee at the outset of the project. The Consultant shall be required to draft an operation plan for both organisations and any template documents required to initiate a procedure before the Secretariat or the Arbitration Committee. After an initial period (of two to four weeks), the Consultant shall be required to provide assistance to both organisations on a regular basis for a period of at least one year. This assistance shall include guidance for the NABU on an effective financing structure for the Secretariat and the Arbitration Committee to be implemented following completion of the EBRD project.

Activity 2: Drafting restructuring guidelines

The Consultant shall be required to draft restructuring guidelines for management of financial restructuring cases by the Secretariat in line with international standards and best practices as instructed by the EBRD operation leader.

Activity 3: Development of training programme

Activity 4: Delivery of training

The Consultant shall deliver training to Secretariat members in accordance with the training programme developed by the Consultant under Activity 3. The Consultant shall also contribute, as requested, to any training of the Arbitration Committee members in restructuring-related matters.

Activity 5: Participation in stakeholder meetings

Activity 6: Participation in public events

The Consultant shall participate in the organisation and delivery of any public events (in collaboration with other experts where necessary) organised by the EBRD and the NABU to raise awareness of the LFR.

Kyiv City Public Transport Project – PasTrans Loan - Financial And Operational Performance Improvement Programme

 | Published May 29, 2015  -  Deadline June 26, 2015
cpvs

CLARIFICATIONS ISSUED ON 5 JUNE 2015: (i) the Terms of Reference are available through the link provided below (ii) interested consultants are invited to propose their approach and methodology to the assignment; (iii) shortlisting criteria and respective weightings are revised (see Important Note 2)
 
Executing Agency (Client): Kyiv PasTrans
 
Project Description: 
 
The City of Kyiv (the “City” or “Kyiv”) with the population of 2.8 million people is the capital of Ukraine and is a financial, commercial, political, scientific and cultural centre. The City is currently receiving financing from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“EBRD” or the “Bank”) for the Kyiv City Public Transport project (the “Project”). The Project includes loans to three municipal public transport companies in aggregate amount of EUR 115 million, secured by the guarantee from the City: (i) EUR 60 million loan to KyivPastrans to procure new buses and trolleybuses; (ii) EUR 40 million loan to KyivMetro to procure new metro wagons and (iii) EUR 15 million loan to KyivDorservice to finance traffic management solutions in the City. KyivMetro project is completed while KyivPastrans and KyivDorservice are in implementation stage.
 
Circa 1.078 million passengers per annum are carried by the public transport systems in the City. Metro services are the backbone of the public transport system carrying about 47 per cent of all public transport demand. Trams and trolleybuses carry 390 million passengers, while buses carry 179 million passengers. The public transportation network was planned with the objective of finding a balance between available budgets for essential mobility needs, and ensuring high capacity service on the core corridors. The system includes 3 metro lines, 20 tram routes, 38 trolleybus routes, and 140 bus and minibus routes. Most of the minibus routes are operated by private operators. There is currently no functional integrated electronic ticketing system in place.
 
The City coordinates transport service supply through licensing and tariff setting and monitors the provision of services through a Central Dispatching Service. Urban transportation services are the responsibility of the City’s Transport Department for Public Services. 
 
The Metro as well as tram and trolleybus services will remain an essential service for inhabitants with lower income and those eligible for concessionary fares. Kyiv Metro and Kyiv Pastrans are expected to retain their market share and the role as the backbone of the transport system, providing frequent and relatively higher capacity services at more affordable prices.
 
Kyiv PasTrans (the “Company”), a public transport company wholly-owned by the City, responsible for the provision of ground services (bus, trolleybus, tram and light rail). The Company operates 20 tram routes using 436 trams, 38 trolley routes using 546 trolleybuses, 140 bus routes using 1,645 buses, plus one funicular railway. The Company employs approximately 9,419 staff.
 
The Kyiv City Council sets tariffs for public transport services (until last year with approval at the Ministry of Infrastructure level, a practice that has now been discontinued). The tariffs were increased 2 times per cent starting from February 2015. A single flat-rate metro ticket costs UAH 4 (EUR 0.16) significantly below prices of either Warsaw (EUR 1.05) or Sofia (EUR 0.51). A single flat-rate tariff for public on the ground transportation has also been increased 2 times to UAH 3 (EUR 0.13) which is also significantly below the European levels. The privileged/concessionary passenger fares are funded from the State budget (with delays and insufficiently) apart from students and pupils who are co-funded by the municipal budget covering 50 per cent of the full price.
 
The Company is currently developing a reorganisation plan focused on key service delivery indictors and efficiencies.  The Bank’s financing is focusing on renewal of the rolling stock but is conditioned upon the reorganisation plan being timely implemented and as part of the project, the Company will have to improve its corporate governance, maintain financial ratios and other covenants of the legal agreements.
 
Assignment Description: 
 
The Company wishes to engage a Consultant (the “Consultant”) to help develop and implement the Reorganisation aimed at improving efficiency and financial sustainability of its operations.
 
The Consultant shall assist the Company in improving its commercial standing, service and environmental performance by helping to identify and implement the necessary corporate, financial and operational improvements required to meet the related covenants included in the EBRD finance documents and to implement the Reorganisation. This will be achieved via the development and implementation of the FOPIP and of a detailed strategy to roll out the Reorganisation. The Consultant shall also assist the Company in implementing the Reorganisation and to develop short and medium-term focused corporate development plans and to improve their corporate planning capacity to assist their ongoing transition towards becoming self-sustaining entities and commercial operations.
 
The selected Consultant is expected to:
  • assist the Company in identifying and implementing the necessary corporate, financial and operational improvements, including the Reorganisation, to meet the related covenants included in the EBRD finance documents. This will be achieved via the development and implementation of a Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme (“FOPIP”);
  • assist the Company in developing and implementing a short to medium term focused Corporate Development Plan (“CDP”) and corporate planning process, so it may continue its transition towards an entirely commercial operation;
  • propose amendments to the existing Public Service Contract (“PSC”) and assist the Company with negotiations and signing of the amended PSC with the City.
