The success of project financing starts with a good technical and contractual structure. The existing various forms of contracts between public and private sectors and also within the consortium between investors and industrialists, directly impact the financing of the project. Having to choose between public contracting or concession/PPP/PFI schemes, whether or not to grant public guarantees, when to set up a joint- venture and/ or shareholder agreement, what to have or not to have in a deed of pledge, etc ... are all decisions to be made.
At the same time financial documentation is becoming increasingly complex. The choice and the implementation of many financing tools (debt, bonds, grants, funds ...) require a solid expertise to be properly achieved.
Lastly, the project teams' lack of experience, particularly in their capacity to anticipate development costs and to identify the key elements of success, largely contributes to the risk of project failure.
The support of an expert, combined with an innovative approach, makes it possible to secure decision-making at each level of the validation chain and to maximize the parameters of a project's success.
Infraboost supports its public and private customers from the commercial development of their projects and until the implementation of funding. Our services cover the entire field of project financing stages (selection of advisers, project structuration, selection of best financial structure, bankability, fundraising, contracts negotiations, financial close) based on a wide range of solutions (Trade, Fusion Acquisition, Corporate, Export Finance, Project & PPP Finance, etc..)
Structuring & Bankability
