Facilitated by Finacity, Coltejer Carries Out the First Trade Receivable Securitization in Colombia

Stamford, CT – October 12, 2012 – Finacity Corporation structured the first trade receivable securitization in the Colombian market. The COP 22 Billion public placement exceeded the pre-agreed minimum amount of COP 20 Billion for the first tranche of an issue for an aggregate amount of COP 35 Billion, which obtained a “AAA” rating, the highest rating given by BRC Investor Services S.A. – Sociedad Calificadora de Valores (Ticker “FIDCOLTEJE” on the Colombian Stock Exchange). The revolving program, which has a five-year term, includes risk mitigants such as: (a) an overcollateralization with respect to the size of the deal, (b) a trust managed by Alianza Fiduciaria and (c) daily reporting of Coltejer’s commercial invoice portfolio as part of Finacity’s role as Master Servicer.

Adrian Katz, CEO of Finacity, said that “this new structure now offers an innovative financing alternative to companies in the commercial and industrial sectors of Colombia, taking advantage of techniques which have so far been successful in Europe, the USA and Mexico.”

The issue was placed in the Colombian capital markets on October 10th through a public offering brought by Alianza Valores.
