Correctly employing termination clauses when setting out contractual obligations should mean never needing to exercise them. SMi’s inaugural conference on Termination Clauses in PPP will look at how implementing termination clauses can safeguard project delivery. It will offer an in-depth look into the role played by termination clauses in PPPs covering areas such as SoPC4 compliance, risk mitigation and project sustainability, as well as calculation of compensation on termination, re-tendering of PPPs after termination, and several other crucial aspects. Most importantly, we will feature a number of case studies of termination clauses governing specific PPP projects.

Recent terminations, such as the polemic Metronet PPP, have emphatically highlighted the importance of preparing for contingency. By attending this conference you will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to future-proof your PPP and secure your enterprise by establishing the right termination clauses.

Additional Information

Associated workshop also available: Termination and related issues in PPP/PFI 4th March 2008, The Hatton, at etc. venues, London. Why attend this workshop? Termination is not an outcome which sponsors, lenders or secondary investors care to think about when committing to a PPP/PFI deal. However, as the deal flow continues, it would be surprising if there was not the occasional deal which suffered this fate. Recent well-publicised difficulties with Metronet illustrate how things can go wrong. So a review of typical provisions and their inter-relationship is apposite.
