Project Finance Deal Structure
The typical project financing structure, which has been simplified for these purposes, for a build, operate and transfer (BOT) project is shown. The key elements of the structure are:
- Special Purpose Entity (SPE) project company with no previous business or record;
- Sole activity of project company is to carry out the project – it then subcontracts most aspects through construction contract and operations contract;
- For new build projects, there is no revenue stream during the construction phase and so debt service will only be possible once the project is online during the operations phase, thus there are significant risks during the construction phase;
- Sole revenue stream likely to be under an off-take or power purchase agreement;
- Project finance loans are non-recourse as to the borrowers, including the sponsors of the project and shareholders of the project company. There are extensive project financing documents that required no personal liability under the project loans. Thus, the project sponsor and project shareholders are liable only up to the extent of their shareholdings;
- Project Finance Structure means the project remains off-balance sheet for the sponsors and for the host government.
Project sponsors who are seeking equity investors, project lenders and other stakeholders have to appeal to these potential project participants by presenting them with a proposal that is sufficiently compelling to get them to risk vast sums of money investing in their project. In other words, project sponsors must demonstrate that an investment in their project will provide a return on their invested capital that is great enough to put their money at risk.
Most proposed investments involve the acquisition of an asset that is already in operation and already has demonstrable revenue, such as a company, an apartment community or an industrial facility. Project financings don’t have operating assets with demonstrable because they involve the development of assets. With unproven revenue, expenses and cash flow, project sponsors must base their proposals to potential equity investors and lenders on projections. They do that with financial models and well-written, compelling business plans.
Project financial models are sophisticated computer spreadsheets that employ a lengthy list of business assumptions and variables to develop financial forecasts of capital costs, revenues, expenses, cash flow and future value of the assets. Financial models are tools used by project sponsors to negotiate with investors and lenders, and as support for appraisals and financial feasibility studies.
Because financial models form virtually the entire basis for investing in or lending on the proposed project, they must be based on reasonable, believable and transparent assumptions and variables that reflect the anticipated real-life interaction between data and calculated values. Financial models must be capable of sensitivity analysis that calculate projections based on a range of data variations. They must also demonstrate future profits and returns on investment which are sufficiently compelling to convince investors and lenders to invest in your project.
