GIC, a local Ghanaian company, were bidding to sign contracts with the Ministry of Roads and Highways of Ghana to construct 5.8km of storm drainage along the Lamashiegu Nalung-Bulpela Tamale road, in addition to the rehabilitation and reconstruction of 56km of selected roads within the Ashanti region in central Ghana.
GIC needed a financing structure which allowed them to implement the project against contract receivables from the Ministry of Roads and Highways, without any direct guarantee from the Ministry of Finance.
Investec structured the financing and funded the projects.
