BETWEEN REPUBLIC OF SLOVENIA
AND EUROPEAN INVESTMENT BANK
Ljubljana, 27 September 2004
THIS AGREEMENT IS MADE BETWEEN:
The Republic of Slovenia, acting through the Ministry of Finance, represented by Mr. Dušan Mramor, Minister of Finance,
hereinafter called: the “Guarantor«
of the first part, and
 
European Investment Bank having its Head Office at 100, Boulevard Konrad Adenauer, Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, represented by Mr. Wolfgang Roth, Vice President,
hereinafter called: the “Bank«
of the second part.
 
WHEREAS:
1. By an agreement (hereinafter called »the Finance Contract«) dated 20/22 July 2004 between the Bank and the Public Fund of the Republic of Slovenia for Regional Development and Preservation of Slovene Rural Areas (hereinafter called ”the Borrower”), the Bank has agreed to establish in favour of the Borrower a credit in an amount of EUR 20 000 000 (twenty million euro) to co-finance small and medium-scale sub-projects undertaken by the ministries, state agencies, local government authorities and private entities, as more particularly described in the Technical Description set out in Schedule A of the Finance Contract.
2. The obligations of the Bank under the Finance Contract are inter alia conditional upon the execution and delivery by the Guarantor of a guarantee of performance by the Borrower of its financial obligations under the Finance Contract and the de­livery of a favourable legal opinion thereon.
3. Execution of this agreement (hereinafter the “Gua­rantee Agreement”) has been authorised by the Parliament of the Republic of Slovenia (Annex I).
4. The Attorney General of the Guarantor is envisaged to issue an opinion in a form satisfactory to the Bank.
 
NOW THEREFORE it is hereby agreed as follows:
ARTICLE 1
Finance Contract
1.01 The Guarantor declares that it is well acquainted with the terms, conditions and clauses of the Finance Contract, a true copy of which as signed by the parties, is delivered to the Guarantor by the Bank.
ARTICLE 2
Undertakings by the Guarantor
2.01 The Guarantor, as primary obligor and not merely as surety, guarantees entirely the full and punctual performance of all the monetary obligations of the Borrower to the Bank under the Finance Contract, including all payments of interest without any limitation, commissions, incidental charges and other expenses and all the sums being due by the Borrower to the Bank under any provision of the Finance Contract, when the guarantee is enforced.
2.02 If the Guarantor should hereafter grant to any third party security for the performance of any of its external debt obligations or any preference or priority in respect thereof, the Guarantor shall so inform the Bank and shall, if so required by the Bank, provide to the Bank equivalent security for the performance of its obligations hereunder or grant to the Bank equivalent preference or priority. The Guarantor represents that no such security, preference or priority presently exists.
2.03 The Guarantor undertakes to promptly furnish information to the Bank on legislation or the regulatory framework affecting the Borrower, which may have an impact on the implementation of the Project.
ARTICLE 3
Enforcement of guarantee
3.01 Demand may be made under this Guarantee Agreement as soon as the Borrower has not performed all or part of the obligations guaranteed pursuant to Article 2.01 of this Guarantee Agreement.
3.02 The Guarantor hereby waives irrevocably any objection or exception in law to the total or partial enforcement of this guarantee. It undertakes to perform its obligations upon request in writing by the Bank whenever demand is made and to pay the sums due without any limitation, retention or condition, without the Bank having to furnish any special evidence in support of its request other than the reason for the demand under this guarantee. In particular, the Bank is not bound to prove that it has taken any action against the Borrower; it is not obliged, prior to the enforcement of this guarantee, to realise securities or to enforce any other security that the Borrower or a third party may have constituted.
3.03 The payment by the Guarantor shall fall due on the tenth Business Day following that on which demand is made.
For the purpose of this Guarantee Agreement “Business Day” means a day on which banks are open for business in Luxembourg and Ljubljana.
3.04 In the event of the Bank making demand, the Guarantor shall have the right to discharge immediately, under the conditions set out in the Finance Contract, all the monetary obligations of the Borrower under the Finance Contract which are still outstanding at the time of such discharge.
ARTICLE 4
Subrogation
4.01 When the Guarantor has made a payment to the Bank, it is subrogated, to the extent of such payment, to the rights and actions relating to the said payment that the Bank has against the Borrower; this right of subrogation shall not be invoked to the detri­ment of the Bank.
ARTICLE 5
Information
5.01 The Bank shall inform the Guarantor of any fact or event of which it becomes aware which is likely to jeopardise the payment or repayment by the Borrower of the sums hereby guaranteed. Provided however that the Bank is not bound to seek any such information and shall incur no liability by reason of this provision.
5.02 The Guarantor shall inform the Bank forthwith of any fact or event likely to jeopardise the performance of its obligations under this Guarantee Agreement.
5.03 The Guarantor shall inform the Bank of any security given to a third party for the purpose of Paragraph 2.02.
5.04 The Guarantor shall notify the Bank of the completion of the procedures necessary in the Republic of Slovenia to the entry into force of the Guarantee Agreement.
ARTICLE 6
Modification of the Finance Contract
6.01 The Bank shall inform the Guarantor of changes, which do not increase the obliga­tions of the Guarantor, made to the Finance Contract by the Bank for the purpose of improving or strengthening the position of the Bank towards the Borrower.
The Bank shall have the right to grant to the Borrower extensions of time of up to three months in respect of each repayment of principal or payment of interest and any other incidental expenses as it sees fit. Any such extension of time shall be notified to the Guarantor.
Any modifications in the Finance Contract other than those referred to in this Article 6 shall be submitted for approval to the Guarantor. The Guarantor may refuse its approval only if the proposed modifications are likely to be prejudicial to it in its capacity as Guarantor.
ARTICLE 7
Taxes, Charges and Expenses
7.01 Taxes or fiscal charges, legal costs and other expenses incurred in the execution or implementation of this Guarantee Agreement shall be borne by the Guarantor. The Guarantor shall make payments hereunder without withholding or deduction on ac­count of tax or fiscal charges.
ARTICLE 8
Legal regime of the Guarantee Agreement
8.01 The legal relations between the parties to this Guarantee Agreement, its formation and validity shall be governed by the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
8.02 The place of performance of this Guarantee Agreement is the head office of the Bank.
8.03 The parties hereto submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Communities and all disputes concerning the Guarantee Agreement shall be submit­ted to such court.

8.04 The parties hereto agree that this Guarantee Agreement is of a commercial nature and hereby undertake to waive any immunities, which they may now or hereafter enjoy in any country from the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Communities.
8.05 In any legal action arising out of this Guarantee Agreement the certificate of the Bank as to any amount due to the Bank under this Guarantee Agreement shall be prima facie evidence of such amount.
8.06 This Guarantee Agreement shall enter into force upon confirmation by the Bank to the Guarantor that it has received a certified copy of the instrument of ratification by the Guarantor.

2.03 Garant se obvezuje, da bo banki nemudoma priskrbel informacije o zakonodaji oziroma pravnem okviru, ki zadeva kreditojemalca in bi lahko vplival na izvedbo projekta.
3. ČLEN
Uveljavitev garancije
3.01 Zahtevek na podlagi te garancijske pogodbe je mogoče dati, kakor hitro kreditojemalec ne izpolni vseh obveznosti ali dela obveznosti, za katere velja garancija v skladu s členom 2.01 te pogodbe.
3.02 Garant se nepreklicno odreka vsakršnemu ugovoru ali zakonskim izjemam v zvezi s popolnim ali delnim uveljavljanjem te garancije. Obvezuje se, da bo na pisni poziv banke izpolnil svoje obveznosti ob vsakem zahtevku in plačeval zapadle zneske brez vsakršnih omejitev, zadrževanja ali pogojev, ne da bi bilo banki treba priskrbeti kaka druga posebna dokazila v podporo njenemu zahtevku, razen razloga za zahtevek, ki izhaja iz te garancije. Še posebej banka ni dolžna dokazovati, da je sprožila kak postopek proti kreditojemalcu; pred uveljavljanjem te garancije ni dolžna unovčiti vrednostnih papirjev ali uveljavljati kakega drugega jamstva, ki ga je morebiti zagotovil kreditojemalec ali kaka tretja stran.

6. ČLEN
Spremembe finančne pogodbe
6.01 Banka obvesti garanta o spremembah, ki ne povečujejo njegovih obveznosti in jih banka opravi v finančni pogodbi zaradi izboljšanja ali okrepitve položaja banke v odnosu do kreditojemalca.
Banka ima pravico, da na način, ki se ji zdi ustrezen, kreditojemalcu odobri do trimesečno podaljšanje roka za vsako odplačilo glavnice ali plačilo obresti in drugih spremljajočih stroškov. O vsakem takem podaljšanju uradno obvesti garanta.
