Trade finance

On 25 November 2013 the Export-Import Bank (Eximbank) of Korea announced signing a loan agreement with Canadian Teekay amounting to USD 307 million. The loan consists of a USD 177 million Direct Loan and a USD 130 million Comprehensive Guarantee.

The loan finances the Canadian company's purchase from Korean Samsung Heavy. Industries. In this context Teekay signed a USD 757 million Floating Production Storage and Offloading unit exporting deal with the Korean company.

In this context the Bank stated: 'The Bank plans to expand its ship finance activities in order to help Korean shipbuilders win more contracts for high value-added ships.'
