Project Finance Modeling

In this session, project finance and project finance modeling are discussed using a full project finance model which analyses a project in depth. The construction phase, operating phase and financing are discussed in detail and include complex issues such as dealing with real and nominal forecasting, maintenance capital expenditure and deferred tax. This prepares participants to be able to effectively and efficiently build any complex project finance model. Debt considerations, credit metrics, project valuation and investor returns are also modelled, discussed and examined.
