PROJECT FINANCE

Constant Capital has a strong practice in infrastructure and industrial project finance, and advises private sector investors bidding for, engaging in and/or raising finance for a project. We help assess options for delivering projects, develop financial models to evaluate financial options, and structure and negotiate with the funding market to obtain competitive terms for our client’s projects.

Africa’s economic and population growth has created a need for key infrastructure projects, but governments cannot fund these projects alone. As a result, strategic partnerships between governments and the private sector are becoming common for public infrastructure and related service delivery.

We serve private sector clients who bid on projects in these sectors or who are involved in the development of public purpose infrastructure. We help select and execute delivery models that best achieve infrastructure objectives to determine the best delivery model. We provide unbiased advice, innovative solutions and full support throughout the entire project lifecycle. Our professionals work with many clients to deliver innovative structures and obtain competitive financing on infrastructure projects.

Constant Capital provides a wide range of advisory and project finance services for infrastructure projects in the following areas - power generation, oil and gas, petrochemicals, mining and metals processing, industrial facilities, telecommunications, water and wastewater treatment plants, ports, airports, and transportation. Specific infrastructure advisory and project financing services offered by Constant Capital include:

  • Advice on Public Private Partnership (PPP) engagements
  • Strategic project planning and risk allocation
  • Validation of the economic and commercial feasibility and structure of projects and transactions
  • Financial modeling and analyses
  • Advice on commercial negotiations
  • Capital structuring and execution, marketing the transaction to lenders and investors
  • Placement of debt and equity facilities, including limited recourse financing
  • Management of competitive financing bids to obtain optimal terms (auctions), and the negotiation of provisions and financing terms

Project finance often involves a lengthy process of detailed disclosures (e.g., information memoranda and financial models), lender due diligence, intense negotiations and complicated financial and security documentation. Constant Capital's familiarity with this process ensures that our clients have the expert advice and support needed at every stage. This support begins with helping clients express and quantify their business concept in a project package suitable for equity investors and commercial lenders. Our established relationships and experience with these investors and lenders allow us to structure and present each project so as to receive the most favorable terms possible, including the minimization of recourse to sponsors.

Constant Capital has significant experience in advising both private and public entities on financing major capital investment projects and has expertise in capital placements with domestic and international banks, and institutional investors worldwide.
