Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Alfa Bank, Russia’s largest private lender, signed a $250 million loan for trade finance and general corporate purposes.
The one-year deal will pay initial interest at 175 basis points more than the London interbank offered rate, Alfa Bank said in an e-mailed statement today. The bank originally sought financing of $160 million, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Wells Fargo & Co. and WestLB AG coordinated the financing and also served as mandated lead arrangers and bookrunners along with Citigroup Inc. and HSBC Holdings Plc.
