LIBOR-Based Loan (LBL) Treasury Department Controller’s Department Office of the General Counsel Introduction to Maturity-based Pricing
Agenda Main Features of LBL Maturity-based Pricing Background and Rationale Maturity Premium Average Loan Maturity Repayment Terms Sample Calculations Comparison with MDBs Summary Q & A 2
LBL Main Features 3
Background 4 In the past, ADB has not differentiated its sovereign loan pricing according to the tenor of its loans. Same lending spread is charged for a loan with 10-year maturity and 25-year maturity Issues: Price distortions Lack of incentives to optimize loan terms De facto subsidization among borrowers
Rationale Consistent with the pricing practices in the financial markets Encourages borrowers to select a debt management approach driven more by a cost-benefit analysis Improves economic efficiency, ensuring maturity and repayment profile of a loan properly reflect the actual cash flow requirements of the project Eliminates the de facto subsidies that are implicit in the undifferentiated pricing structure. 5

Average Loan Maturity The weighted average time to repay a loan. Considers both repayment dates and amounts to provide a better estimation of how quickly a loan is repaid Average Loan Maturity = Sum of Weighted Repayments Sum of Total Repayments 7

Loan Processing 18 Borrowers should be notified by the project team of the applicability of the maturity premium as early as possible in the loan processing cycle. The maturity premium for a proposed LBL should be agreed with the Borrower during the loan fact-finding mission and reflected in the memorandum of understanding or aide-memoire for the fact- finding mission.
