European Investment Bank

Dear Mr. Glover,

Thank you for your e-mail dated 30 July 2018 sent via the AsktheEU.org
website to the European Investment Bank (EIB), requesting access to all
records relating to EIB funds/funding/loans made available or committed to
eNet and/or Granahan McCourt Capital either within or outside the Irish
National Broadband Plan as well as all records between Mr Phil Hogan (EU
Commissioner) and the EIB related to these operations. Your request is
being handled in accordance with the provisions of the EIB Group
Transparency Policy^(1).

We first would like to clarify that, as of today, the EIB has only
provided funding to eNet or Granahan McCourt Capital and Partners as an
initial investment of 12 M EUR to support the expansion of next generation
optic fiber telecom infrastructure across Ireland. The EIB’s agreement in
2015 with eNet represented its first engagement in Ireland under the
‘InnovFin – EU Finance for Innovators’ MidCap Growth Finance, with the
financial backing of the European Union under Horizon 2020 Financial
Instrument. You can find more information on the EIB website^(2). This
funding is not related to the National Broadband Plan project.

We also would like to inform you that the EIB’s Board of Directors has
recently  approved funding for the Irish National Broadband Plan for a
maximum amount of 500 M EUR. This project relates to the roll-out of a
high-speed telecommunications network to cover up to 542 000 homes located
in areas without network coverage throughout Ireland. Additional
information regarding this project can be found on our website^(3). 
Please note that, as of today, the EIB loan for this project has not been
signed and therefore, no EIB funds have been disbursed yet for this
project. Furthermore, as the tender process to appoint a company to
deliver the project is still in progress, we are not in a position to
comment further on this project.

Concerning the second part of your request about exchanges between the EU
Commissioner Mr. Phil Hogan and the EIB in relation with the two
operations listed above, we would like to inform you that we have not
identified any correspondence between the EIB and the Commissioner in that
respect.

Based on the clarifications provided in this email and given that the EIB
is not in a position to identify the specific documents and information
that you request, we would kindly ask you, in line with article 5.19 of
the EIB Group Transparency Policy, if you could further refine the scope
of your request by, for example, clarifying  which particular aspects of
the projects financially supported by the EIB would interest you, in a way
that would allow us to better address your information request.

We remain at your disposal for any assistance you might need in this
respect^(4).

Yours sincerely,
Infodesk Team
European Investment Bank
