We provide high-quality expertise in both the Buy Side and the Sell Side of transactions. Valuation analysis of the transaction target is an integral part of the added value we produce.
We advise, for example, on purchases and sales of shares, businesses, assets or a combination thereof. In a Sell Side mandate, we manage a structured sales process for our client:
- We prepare marketing materials, such as an Information Memorandum.
- We identify potential interested buyers.
- We make initial contacts to verify truly interested parties.
In addition, we coordinate the due diligence process and represent out clients in the transaction negotiations until the closing of the transaction.
In a Buy Side mandate, we advise our clients on all commercial aspects and financing of the transaction. Our services also usually include arranging financing for the buyer. These services are backed with advice on any engineering, operational and environmental issues that may arise during the process provided by our strategic advisory partners.
Structured Finance & PPP
We help develop projects that can be financed with their own collateral. This enables our clients to reduce the financial risk and balance sheet effects of project owners.
In addition to negotiating project contracts, we prepare the following:
- Project Information Memorandum
- Financial model
- Risk assessment and risk allocation
- Sensitivity analysis
In addition, we advise our clients in financing negotiations with the project lenders and coordinate due diligence for the lenders’ project. We also advise on project insurances.
We help public sector clients to explore the possibilities for tapping private sector funding for infrastructure investments and advise our clients in PPP/PFI funded investment projects.
We consult and, if necessary, also lead the development of your project. We prepare the commercial and contractual structure in such a way that you get competitive financing for your project.
We focus on the quality and efficiency of the technical design, so we consider the future construction phase and the use of the facility right from the development phase. This ensures that the desired project budget, timetable and plant performance are achieved alongside excellent environmental and safety performance.
Key elements of project development include:
- Project management during the development phase and construction
- Financial modeling
- Contractual structuring
- Key project agreements: PPA, FSA, O&M, EPC
- Financial structuring
- Project Information Memorandum
- Licensing and permits
- Insurance and risk allocation
- Financing package and collaterals
Do you want to understand the future of the energy market, the new opportunities that are being presented by technologies, or the effects of regulation on your business? Turn to us!
Market regulation is a key factor determining the operating environment for companies operating in the energy sector. While renewable and decentralized energy production increases, digitalization enables consumers to become active market participants: real-time control of consumption and decentralized energy production are enabling truly multilateral trade. This is revolutionizing the operating environment and market regulation of traditional electricity companies.
We have carried out numerous commissions on the regulation of electricity, heat and gas transmission and distribution, including pricing analyses of electricity distribution and district heating, as well as water and wastewater tariff studies. We can also help you better understand your company’s operating environment.
