The Czech Export Bank (CEB) provided loans and guarantees to local exporting companies in the value of CZK 23.5bn (EUR 888.6mn) in 2009, which represented a 14.6% y/y growth, according to preliminary data published on the industry ministry data. The value of the provided loans grew by 16% y/y to CZK 19bn. CEB shareholders approved a 47.5% capital hike to CZK 2.95bn (EUR 107.7mn) in April last year with the objective to support exports as part of the countrys anti-crisis package. After the capital hike, the stake of the state institutions will be 72.9% and that of the state insurance company Export Guarantee and Insurance Corporation (EGAP) 27.1%. CEB mediates state support to exports by granting and financing export credits among others. In August the international rating agency Moodys downgraded CEBs long-term foreign currency issuer and senior unsecured ratings to A1 from Aa1 with a stable outlook.
