Who is our customer

The Cambodia Laos Myanmar Development Fund II is a sector-agnostic PE Fund targeting investments in SMEs in Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar. It is the second Fund managed by Emerging Market Investment Advisers. FMO committed USD 10mln in the Fund’s First Close in 2015. The team has since built a diversified portfolio of 13 investees.

What is our funding objective?

FMO intends to increase its commitment by USD 0.9mln to replenish the Fund’s follow-on reserves and allow the team to support its investees during and after the corona crisis. The capital is fully earmarked to support existing portfolio companies.

Why do we fund this investment?

The corona crisis has disrupted business plans globally. While the Fund’s investees have shown resilience, capital earmarked for future growth has been depleted to cover working capital and operating expenses during the lock-down. The Fund’s follow-on strategy has also been affected. An increase in commitments would help the Fund achieve its value creation objectives and support investees in reaching their initial growth targets.

What is the Environmental and Social categorization rationale?

E&S category is B based on the pipeline and investment strategy of the Fund. The Fund has dedicated E&S staff and the ESMS is accordance with the most recent DFI requirements.
