Total estimated IFC direct pool and servicer investments: US$700 million.Direct IFC investments in discrete private entities, in both the real and financial sectors, with a good business model, that need financial restructuring. This is part of IFC’s mainstream business and would have a emphasis on mobilizing private capital - a short to medium term strategy based on the response to the financial crisis. Total estimated IFC Direct company investments: US$500 million.Fund Investments – traditional investments in fund vehicles – with a sector focus on distressed assets - where IFC’s primary role would be that of investment catalyst and financial investor (e.g., an LP).

8 DARP Program UpdateGeneral Summary: Since its program launch in August 2009, the Debt and Asset Program has been very successful and continues to make progress. Approvals: IFC has approved eleven projects under DARP for a total of approximately US$640 million for IFC’s own account. These project span the LAC, CEA and ECA regions. Countries include Colombia, Thailand, Ukraine, and several Eastern Europe regional projects. Commitments: Of the above approved projects, nine have been committed for a total of US$300 million. Pipeline: Two other projects are at advanced stages: One in Russia/Ukraine and one in Argentina which expected to be obtain Board approval sometime in April. The two projects involve IFC investments of about US$70 million in total. In addition, other early stage DARP pipeline projects involve investments in India, the Caribbean, Nigeria and the East Asia Region. Mobilization: The program is partnering with a number of experienced and well-regarded entities in the DA space such as Standard Bank, PineBridge, EOS and ADM. The overall DARP program expects to mobilize about 3-5 times IFC’s investment amount in the program.
9 DARP Program Update (cont’d) Advisory: Going forward, the AS program intends to raise awareness on responsible finance among FIs involved in collections and servicing, and influence the market towards the increasing adoption of best practices in responsible collections. This component is expected to launch before the end of FY10. DARP/AMC: IFC is exploring ways to enhance/scale DARP activities by collaborating with the IFC AMC. Challenges: E&S-Given the scope of the program, the sectors involved and other related activities (e.g., AS), IFC recognizes the need for careful monitoring and management of risks related to E&S and conflicts of interest at the program level. Also key factor to monitor includes reputation risk. Utilization- Though IFC is optimistic about the expected utilization of some of the projects/facilities, some transactions/asset classes may develop slowly. As such, IFC is taking a more active role in pipeline development at the project level.
