Project Finance Modelling: Essential Model Functionality for Powerful Transaction Analysis

Wednesday 6th July, 12.30pm-1.30pm AEST
Thursday 7th July, 2.00pm-3.00pm BST

Reaching financial close in a project finance transaction requires a financial model that can satisfy a range of stakeholders, including debt financiers, equity sponsors, governments and developers. Each stakeholder will use the financial model to assess the transaction from their unique perspective, and planning for these requirements ensures a smoother execution phase. This webinar will demonstrate what the project finance market expects from a financial model, with a focus on how each module can developed to meet the needs of various stakeholders.

Attendees will gain valuable insights into:

  • how to improve the communication of key model outputs
  • build confidence with transparent model structures
  • develop powerful scenario functionality
  • how to improve the model audit trail

Based on Corality’s experience from over 1,000 projects across all project finance industry segments including infrastructure, renewables, energy and natural resources, attendees will learn to understand the benefits of models that are flexible, transparent and professionally presented.

This webinar is targeting industry participants who want to develop their understanding of the role the financial model plays for various stakeholders, and how the structure and functionality can be tailored to meet these needs. Deep technical (Excel) discussion will be avoided to focus on the link between commercial negotiations and model functionality.
