Course description

Project Finance Mechanics

This 4-day course will give attendees a practical understanding of how to apply project finance techniques successfully to projects with a particular emphasis on risk analysis and management. The course is structured into interactive sessions covering all the tools of project finance.

The course will begin with introductory comments about the skills and general objectives in project finance analysis with an emphasis on the difficulty in measuring and valuing risk. Financial statement analysis of project finance transactions will also be covered, as well as valuation and credit analysis. Participants will construct a basic project finance model to become familiar with the structure, equity cash flow and free cash flow.

In addition, attendees will explore and discuss modelling mistakes, model layout and best practice spreadsheet conventions as a prelude to hands-­on work on a comprehensive model. Finally, the programme will address covenants and risk analysis, and mitigation in project finance.
