Unique financing model to build landmark social infrastructure in Turkey

Siemens? EUR 30.3mn financing contribution to enable construction and completion of Elaz?? Integrated Health Campus by 2018
First greenfield social infrastructure bond in Turkey
First project including credit enhancements following COP21 global commitment to support emerging countries
Public Private Partership (PPP) project forms part of Turkey?s long-term Health Transformation Program
By demonstrating new ways to finance social infrastructure projects in the form of social project bonds, Siemens has contributed to financial close for a state-of-the art health campus in the Turkish city of Elaz??, in Eastern Anatolia. The project forms part of Turkey?s Health Transformation Program covering 35 health campuses in 22 provinces. Financing is based on the first long-term project bond in the Turkish PPP market. It is also the first project to feature credit enhancement provided by the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) following the COP21 global commitment to support emerging countries Sustainable Development Goals ? backed up by political risk insurance of the World Bank?s Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA). The project bond is set up in three tranches over 18 and 20 years. By contributing EUR 30.3mn to the overall EUR 288.5mn bond over a 20 years financing period, Siemens broadens its financing capabilities to enable infrastructure investment ? a business case that can be applied across the Siemens infrastructure portfolio and in other emerging markets.
?This is another milestone in enhancing Siemens? financing capabilities into the growing market of project bonds while also creating opportunities for Siemens to bid for healthcare and building technologies equipment and services?, says Anthony Casciano, CEO of the Industry and Healthcare business unit of Siemens Financial Services. The investment in the project bond was put in place by Siemens Bank and is the fifth hospital project under this program that has closed with Siemens? support, which shows the Group?s commitment to the transformation process of the healthcare service quality in Turkey.
Siemens Turkey President and CEO Hüseyin Gelis said: ?As an industry that has direct impact on human life, healthcare is a priority in development plans of all countries. Launched in 2003, Health Transformation Program founded the basis of the infrastructure improvements much needed in the Turkish healthcare industry. City hospitals built within the scope of the Public Private Partnership model play an important role in achieving the 2023 targets set for our country.?
The Project is located in the east of Turkey, in Elaz?? city. It comprises the construction and operation of an integrated health campus with a total capacity of 1,038 beds, comprising a general hospital, women–s and children–s hospital, psychiatric hospital, mouth and dental health Centre, as well as additional support buildings and facilities, in total 355,752 sqm of healthcare accommodation. Meridiam, Rönesans, Sila and Sam are shareholders of ELZ Saglik Yatirim A.S., the project company formed to implement the Project under a 28 years concession including a 23 month construction period. The contractors have extensive relevant experience in Turkish construction and real estate facilities management and strong expertise in the Turkish healthcare market. The project also benefits from a well-established ongoing relationship with the Turkish Ministry of Health as awarding authority.
The financing model has been certified as ?green and social bond? by Virgeo EIRIS, a leading global provider of environmental, social and governance research, indicating the environmental and social benefits of the project.
