Sberbank in Warehouse Partnership

The corporate and investment banking division of Sberbank signed a strategic partnership with MLP to finance the warehouse developer's debt by using three of the company's facilities as collateral.

The bank's merchant banking department has also acquired a convertible preferred stock amounting to a 33 percent stake in the group, which manages 1.33 million square meters of industrial space including four warehouse complexes in the Moscow region, St. Petersburg, Podolsk and Kiev.

A statement from the companies said that they would cooperate on "financing the developer's projects, hedging interest rate and foreign exchange risks and providing mezzanine financing."

MLP's properties also include Severnoye Domodedovo Industrial and Logistics Complex and Tomilino Logistics Complex.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
