Emirates NBD PJSC (EMIRATES) and Mashreqbank PSC (MASQ), two Dubai-based lenders, are among bidders for Citigroup Inc.’s (C) consumer-banking business in Egypt, according to four people with knowledge of the matter. The two submitted offers in the first round of bidding, the people said, asking not to be identified because the process is private. The value of the bank’s portfolio in the Arab world’s most populous economy may be about $500 million, with a second round of bids to begin shortly, one of the people said. Citigroup, based in New York, is exiting its consumer banking business in 11 countries to focus on markets where it has the greatest scale and growth potential. The bank has said it expects to complete most of those sales this year. Competitors including BNP Paribas SA (BNP) and Societe Generale SA also sold consumer businesses in Egypt to boost returns. Emirates NBD, Dubai’s biggest bank, bought BNP Paribas’ Egypt unit in a $500 million deal in 2013, while Qatar National Bank SAQ acquired SocGen Egypt for $1.97 billion the same year. A spokesman for Citigroup in Dubai declined to comment as did spokesmen for Emirates NBD and Mashreqbank. Egypt’s economic growth is expected to accelerate as political stability returns following the military’s ousting of the Islamists from power almost two years ago and the election of Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as president. North Africa’s biggest economy will grow 3.4 percent this year, according to the average of 10 economist estimates compiled by Bloomberg, compared with 2.2 percent last year. More»

Egypt’s Social Fund for Development (SFD) secures 40.2 million Egyptian pounds (around US$ 5.6 million) in favour of sub-projects aiming to protect the country’s River Nile. Egyptian Minister of Irrigation Hossam Al Mogazy and Soha Soliman- Secretary General of SFD – have signed Monday an agreement to finance four sub-projects as pursuant to the World Bank-funded Emergency Labor Intensive Investment Project (ELIIP) and the third German debt swap agreement. The four sub-projects are for the River Nile side protection in addition to another project for the canal cleaning and weeds reduction, which will be implemented in five governorates; Giza, Luxor, Beheira, Qalyubia, and Assyout. In this respect, minister Al Moghazy stated that protection of Nile sides sub-projects would be implemented in about 17 km of the river banks, with a total cost of about 37.7 million pounds (around US$5.2 million). Those projects aim to create around 2179 job opportunities, he added. From her part, SFD’s Soha Soliman pointed out that those projects come within the framework of the third German debt swap agreement and World Bank-EU-funded ELIIP. The objectives of the project are to create short-term employment opportunities for unemployed unskilled and semi-skilled workers and to provide access to basic infrastructure services to the target population in poor areas. The Egyptian Social Fund for Development (SFD) was established in 1991 to effectively participate in poverty alleviation and job creation and to ensure development of integrated, participatory and gender - sensitive approached in the provision and management of basic services through participatory approach.

Emirates NBD Bank intends to increase its network of branches to 100 from 70 in Egypt in the coming two years. According to deputy managing director Sahar El Damati, Emirates NBD Egypt is seeking in the coming period to inaugurate new branches to achieve wider geographical spread and boost its volume of deposits. Emirates NBD Egypt seeks to benefit from the eased regulations set by the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) for opening new mini branches by banks operating in the Egyptian market, El Damati noted.In keeping with its commitment to the support of national projects and the Egyptian economy, Emirates NBD Egypt paid Friday a high-level visit to the site of the new Suez Canal project for members of the bank’s management in Egypt and the UAE. The purpose of the visit was to show support to those working on the project and support the creation of a Center for Rapid Recovery Covering Canal Cities to offer site workers emergency healthcare and rescue services. The value of supplies contributed by Emirates NDB Egypt exceeded EGP 4 million worth of caravans, tents, beds, blankets, living supplies and camp equipment for workers involved in the project. In December, the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) has set new requirements for opening new mini branches by banks operating in the Egyptian market. According to the new requirements, the banks are required to hold EGP 5 million in capital for every new mini branch opened in Cairo, EGP 2 million for the rest of governorates, except for Upper Egypt governorates which require only EGP 1 million for each mini branch. The new requirements aim to facilitate and support banks' objective to spread across all governorates, with higher reach to new customers. Emirates NBD, the leading bank in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region and in the United Arab Emirates, entered the Egyptian market on June 2013 through the acquisition of the BNP Paribas subsidiary in Egypt.
