We issue letter of intent expressing our financial support in favor of our exporters who are willing to export goods or to participate in international tenders and in favor of our contractors and shipbuilding companies who are willing to undertake projects abroad or to participate in international tenders.

What is a letter of intent?

A letter of intent is a document indicating that the export transaction or project may be financed under the Buyer’s Credits. A letter of intent does not incur a financing commitment and the financial terms of a prospective loan will be determined according to the prevailing market conditions at the time of the official loan application.

We issue letter of intents in English language only. Depending on the request of our exporters, we can issue letter of intents in two different forms: with an annexed ‘‘term sheet’’ indicating the tentative financing terms or without a term sheet.

Letter of intents with a term sheet have a validity of 3 months while those without a term sheet are valid for 6 months. We can extend the validity period of our letter of intents, if our exporters demand such extension on valid grounds. We expect our exporters to apply in writing prior to the expiry date of the letter of intent and to pay the application fee again.

What are the advantages?

By issuing a letter of intent indicating our financial support, we help our exporters to gain competitive advantage while participating in international tenders or negotiating with their buyers.

What are the conditions?

We require our exporters to be established in accordance with the Turkish Commercial Code, to have a high commercial standing and sound financial management, and be experienced in their fields.

Our terms of financing are determined on a case by case basis. We provide financing on commercial terms and in accordance with the OECD Arrangement on Officially Supported Export Credits.
