The first edition of this book was published at the end of , with its preface dating back to June At that time, financial markets worldwide were at their peaks in most of the segments of financial intermediation.

The growth was sustained by a very long period of expansive monetary policy by the Federal Reserve, with very low levels of real interest rates, growth of equity indices and prices, expansion in the real estate and credit markets, and an increased use of a new generation of increasingly complex asset-backed securities and structured debt products.

In Europe, many columnists were criticizing the more conservative policy of the European Central Bank and its excessive attention to inflationary pressures rather than economic growth. In this favorable environment, the syndicated loans market and project finance reached their unsurpassed peaks in The syndicated loans market registered around 4.

We all know what happened after With the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the whole economic system started a period of prolonged recession and of overall weak macroeconomic performance compared to the previous decade.

The massive interventions put in place by the central banks and in particular the extraordinary quantitative easing actions by the Federal Reserve attempted to restore normalized market conditions. After , the United States began showing signs of recovery. However, the financial crisis had already spilled over from the private sector the financial sector to public deficits.

The more recent crisis of the sovereign debt in peripheral countries in Europe Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain, or the PIIGS, as they are frequently labeled has plunged Europe into a double-dip recession, and the credit crunch determined by the need for bank recapitalization has strongly reduced the commitment to lend by the banking system.

Some of the intermediaries that in the first part of were very active in the syndicated loans and project finance markets have almost completely withdrawn from this business. The market recorded a remarkable downturn from around 4. The declining trend was mirrored in the project finance market, with figures falling from around billion US dollars in to a bottom of billion US dollars in In , the market for project finance loans returned to the pre-crisis period with a value of about billion US dollars.

This changed landscape has radically modified the way to approach a project finance deal and the deal structuring. This holds true for project sponsors, banks, investors in infrastructures, project bondholders, and public authorities. The second edition starts exactly where the first stopped. Although the fundamentals of project finance remain unchanged, the process that leads to the financing is now very different from what was depicted in the first edition.

Almost all the chapters have been influenced by the new macroeconomic scenario, and all of them include specific references as to how the recent financial turmoil has affected the business. This new edition includes several new or revised sections. I want to summarize the most relevant. Chapter 1 includes a new, expanded section dedicated to the emerging role of infrastructure funds as equity providers to special-purpose vehicles SPVs.

While in the past, the ownership of an SPV was almost exclusively represented by industrial or public sponsors, nowadays industrial developers are looking with increasing interest at the opportunities offered by specialized investors in infrastructure. After a pause in growth between and , the flow of funds invested by infrastructure funds has almost recovered to the level of the peaks recorded in Chapter 2 has been revised and now includes updated time series on the market trends for project finance and public-private partnerships PPPs.

Chapter 4 has been expanded in the section dedicated to the monoline insurers. Before the financial crisis, these intermediaries boosted the growth of the securitization market, providing convenient credit enhancement with their high ratings. The collapse of Lehman Brothers spurred a chain reaction of downgrades and bankruptcies of these monoliners.

The wrapped bonds market for asset-backed securities [ABS], but also for project finance is now almost inexistent. Chapter 6 is probably the chapter that has been modified the most. The sections relative to multilateral banks and export credit agencies ECAs have been updated with the inclusion of the new lines of products made available in response to the financial turmoil.

Special sections have been included to explain how the new methods of syndication club deals work and why the crisis has forced banks to propose new ways to amortize long-term loans mini perm structures to project sponsors. Furthermore, careful attention has been dedicated to project bonds. Curiously, although the market for these instruments has almost evaporated after the defaults and downgrades of the monoliners, the European market is now experiencing a revived interest in this type of financing, which is seen by the European Union as a possible solution to the downward trend in bank loans dedicated to infrastructures.

The European Union Project Bond initiative is discussed in detail. Chapter 8 includes a new section dedicated to how the Basel Capital Regulations have been modified in response to the crisis Basel III and how the changes have affected the project finance market.

Furthermore, a completely new section is dedicated to a review of the performance of project finance loans in terms of probability of default and loss given default from a long-term perspective.

Overall, the data indicate that project finance is a resilient asset class even in period of severe financial stress, much more resilient than other traditional loans. The second new case study, Case Study 4 Milan Metro Line 5 , focuses on transportation infrastructures, in particular the expansion of the underground metropolitan railway network in Milan.

It is useful to analyze how the concession agreement can be set up in order to share risks in a fair way between the awarding public authority and the private sponsors. At the end of this long period of manuscript revision, let me express my renewed thanks to my contributors in this volume: Alessandro Steffanoni and Daniele Corbino for the release of the Excel file supporting the Italy Water Case , Massimo Novo for Chapter 7 , Sarah De Rocco, Fabio Landriscina, and Mark Pollard for the insurance section in Chapter 4.

Thanks also to Scott Bentley, Kathie Paoni and Andre Cuello at Elsevier for the precise support and useful suggestions throughout the preparation of the new edition. A special thanks to Gimede Gigante for excellent research assistance and help in updating most of the data in Chapters 2 and 6.

I tried to put every possible effort into preparing this new, updated, and expanded edition. My hope is to have prepared a book that is at the forefront of knowledge on project and infrastructure financing and that is a useful tool for academics, practitioners, and students in their day-to-day work in this fascinating field of finance. My initial involvement in this field was due to the launch of a new research project investigating the development of project finance techniques in Italy.

At that time, Europe had just started to see the use of this technique in the private sector, particularly for the development and subsequent exploitation of off-shore crude reserves the Forties Fields, off the coast of Scotland.

The Italian project finance market was still in its infancy. From that point on, the most absorbing field of interest on my research agenda and in my professional activity has become project finance.

Academic journals that have hosted papers on the subject are very few. This is the reason why I decided to collect a large part of the teaching notes, reports, and case studies I have developed over the past few years and organize them into a book. My objective is to provide the reader with a complete view on how a deal can be organized—from industrial, legal, and financial standpoints—and the alternatives for funding it.

But what must never be forgotten is that project finance is a highly leveraged transaction where two principles are key to its success: 1 cash is king; 2 lenders control the destiny of the project. In fact, their satisfaction is just as important as the legitimate claim of project sponsors for a satisfactory return on the capital employed. The book opens with a description of the rationale underpinning project finance deals and a discussion of the difference between corporate finance and project finance in Chapter 1.

Chapter 2 is dedicated to the analysis of the market at an international level. Trends clearly demonstrate that 1 project finance loans are a rapidly growing segment of the syndicated loans market; 2 the destination of funds is quickly changing.

In particular, the largest portion of loans is beginning to flow into PPPs public-private partnerships and projects where the public administration or public bodies play the role of concession awarder to private sponsors. Chapter 3 focuses on risk analysis and risk management. The chapter considers project contracts as risk management tools. Together with insurance policies, in fact, they are the most powerful instruments of this kind for reducing cash flow volatility of the deal, to the benefit of both lenders and sponsors.

Chapter 4 covers a seldom-seen discussion on the role of external consultants in project finance transactions. Here we also describe what legal advisors, independent technical advisors, and insurers are required to do in the overall process of deal design, implementation, and funding. In Chapter 5 we discuss how to appraise the bankability of the deal. Since cash is king, two topics are of particular relevance: 1 the analysis of cash flows generated by the venture; 2 the optimal capital structure.

The analysis of cover ratios which represent the balance between cash generation and cash needs for debt service and sensitivity and scenario analysis completes the financial analysis of the transaction.

Chapter 6 contains an overview of financing options. Since the book targets an international readership, we address the role played by multilateral and bilateral institutions, also in developing countries. Chapter 7 is dedicated to the legal aspects of project finance.

After examining the special purpose vehicle, we provide a thorough description of the finance, security, and project documents. Finally, Chapter 8 explores some recent developments in the literature on project finance, brought about by the forthcoming adoption of the new Basel II rules. The chapter looks at Basel II requirements for lenders in terms of credit risk analysis of specialized lending deals which encompasses project finance and discusses the as yet unresolved issue of how to measure the value at risk of a project finance transaction.

The book also includes three case studies. The aim of the first, Cogeneration 1, is to describe the setup of the contractual network of a deal and to identify the weak points of a project and possible available solutions. The second, Italy Water, is an Excel-based case study which can be used as a business game. The aim here is to develop negotiating skills in the participants, who must maximize the trade-off of conflicting utility functions of sponsors, lenders, and public administration.

The book has taken me more than a year and a half to finish. I hope that the reader will appreciate all the effort put into making an updated and complete handbook. My special thanks go to Karen, who from the very beginning enthusiastically supported my proposal to publish a book on the topic with her publisher and followed the progress of the work step by step. Acknowledgements go to all the people who have worked with me these past years, both scholars and professionals, to disseminate knowledge on this subject.

Special thanks to my contributors in this volume, Alessandro Steffanoni and Daniele Corbino for the release of the Excel file supporting the Italy Water Case , Massimo Novo for the legal part of the book , and Fabio Landriscina and Mark Pollard for the insurance section. Finally, thanks to all my friends and relatives who I have taken time and attention away from while spending days and sometimes nights writing the pages of this book.

I want to dedicate it to my mother, Graziella, whose love for her son is one of the most precious jewels in his life. Although gathering reliable data is rather difficult, it is estimated that the value of investments brought about by PF amounts to around EUR billion globally every year.

Recent events have given rise to new challenges for PF and, more than ever, there is a need for incisive advice and guidance in this often complex area. Projects financed through PF can be found across the world in a range of sectors such as transport e.

Project Finance: Practical Case Studies

 Quiere Vd. Algo? - настаивал бармен.  - Fino. Jerez. Откуда-то сверху накатывали приглушенные волны классической музыки. Бранденбургский концерт, - подумал Беккер.  - Номер четыре.

 - Второе, что никогда не ставилось под сомнение, - это чутье Мидж.  - Идем, - сказала она, вставая.  - Выясним, права ли. Бринкерхофф проследовал за Мидж в ее кабинет. Она села и начала, подобно пианисту-виртуозу, перебирать клавиши Большого Брата. Бринкерхофф посмотрел на мониторы, занимавшие едва ли не всю стену перед ее столом.

 Мидж, послушай.  - Он засмеялся.  - Попрыгунчик - древняя история. Стратмор дал маху. Но надо идти вперед, а не оглядываться все время.  - В трубке воцарилась тишина, и Джабба подумал, что зашел слишком .

 - Но пока этого не произошло, мы в цейтноте. Сьюзан открыла рот, желая сказать, что она все понимает, но ее слова были заглушены внезапным пронзительным звуком. Тишина шифровалки взорвалась сигналом тревоги, доносившимся из служебного помещения ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Сьюзан и Стратмор в недоумении посмотрели друг на друга.

Он очень долго планировал, как осуществит свою мечту, и выбрал Нуматаку со всей тщательностью. Нуматек - богатая фирма, наиболее вероятный победитель аукциона. Ни у кого не вызовет подозрений, если ключ попадет именно к .

Вокруг послышалось шушуканье, старик замолчал и снова стал смотреть прямо перед. Беккер прикрыл глаза и сжался, раздумывая, сколько времени продлится служба. Выросший в протестантской семье, он всегда считал, что католики ужасно медлительны. Теперь он молил Бога, чтобы священник не торопился, ведь как только служба закончится, он будет вынужден встать, хотя бы для того чтобы пропустить соседей по скамье.

    The central theme of this textbook is value-based financial management with the author's basic premise being that value creation should be key to making financial, strategic and operating decisions.
