Power and Infrastructure Project Finance (Online Course)
Power and Infrastructure Project Finance (Online Course)
Creating a bankable project finance structure in terms of risk allocation and the commercial and financial structure
Project finance is widely used for large infrastructure projects ranging from roads and bridges to oil and gas and renewable energy projects. The structuring technique is very versatile and enables project risks to be allocated to the parties best able to manage them – which facilitates the raising of long term debt with recourse to the project developer limited to its initial investment commitment.
The correct allocation of risk through an appropriate commercial structure is the foundation of a sound financing plan and this course will develop these themes by walking through the commercial contracts and finance documentation and provide an understanding of how to determine the optimal amount of debt using cash flow and ratio analysis. Current project financing circumstances from around the world will be discussed though case study exercises.
Investment committees need to be sure that all risk aspects have been studied and the course will detail the key elements of the due diligence exercise. The course will also provide a guide on how to approach the debt market.
