NDB Investment Bank Ltd. (NDBIB) is continuing to establish itself as the leader in the investment banking space by providing corporate advisory services especially with regard to structuring M&A transactions, which include Management Buy Outs (MBOs) and raising debt via capital markets in Sri Lanka.

As part of the capital restructuring process to unlock shareholder value, the subsidiaries of Resus Energy PLC (REP, formerly known as Hemas Power PLC) raised over Rs. 1.0 billion via a syndicated debt facility with the participation of National Development Bank and Sampath Bank. NDBIB played a key role in this transaction as financial advisor and arranger for the debt facility and has been in the forefront in the restructuring process of REP group.
