ADGM acts as gateway to benefit African businesses

DUBAI - July 13, 2020: Tata International Limited (TIL) has completed the first tranche of a receivables securitization transaction for USD 48 million in order to support their business growth in Africa. TIL packaged their receivables from eight African countries and successfully raised funding against them. The countries include Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Ivory Coast and Zambia.

In addition to the trading business, TIL is also a distributor for Tata Motors and Daewoo commercial vehicles, Jaguar Land Rover automobiles and John Deere construction and agricultural equipment across the African continent.   

“Africa is a key market for TIL’s commercial vehicles business. TIL provides support to local entrepreneurs, farmers and SMEs to grow their business. This transaction allows TIL to increase their market share in Africa while supporting economic development at a local level. I would like to thank Alpen Capital for conceptualizing, structuring and concluding this sophisticated transaction.” said Noel Tata, Managing Director, Tata International Limited.
