Completion of €630 million sale of NPL portfolios on the secondary market
Rome, February 22 nd , 2023 – doValue S.p.A. (“doValue”) is pleased to communicate the completion of Project Souq, the disposal to Intrum of two NPL portfolios of approximately €630 million of aggregate GBV related to the Cairo 1 and Cairo 2 HAPS securitisation vehicles (both managed by doValue Greece).
The transaction, which was structured, executed, and completed by doValue Greece in volatile market conditions, allows doValue to accelerate the collection activity in Greece whilst retaining the long-term servicing mandate on the two portfolios acquired by Intrum.
The process leading to the disposal was implemented also thanks to doLook, the digital NPL trading platform which doValue has developed jointly with fintech company Debitos and is a demonstration of doValue’s ability to leverage on innovative platforms to carry out different recovery strategies on behalf of its clients. Hellenic Finance acted as Financial Advisor for the sale process.
Project Souq is one of the largest secondary sales of NPL portfolios in Europe and the first-ever Greece secondary NPL transaction on the doLook platform.
