“People do not sign models, they sign the contracts that those models represent.” As project finance evolves and becomes increasingly complex, project participants risk a disconnect between their commercial understanding of the financial model and the actual contractual language. Linklaters and Vair combine their experience and expertise to demonstrate the creation of a sound relationship between project and finance documents and the model and how to identify and avoid potential pitfalls.
This is a unique and new approach to the traditional seminar experience. Combining disciplines to present a holistic view of projects, Vair and Linklaters give participants a detailed insight into the development process.

After reviewing some basic elements of project finance, the participants are given a full suite of abridged project documents and macroeconomic information that are indicative of any infrastructure project. This is followed by the participants building a complex equity case financial model step-by-step. This phase of the seminar demonstrates how to dove-tail contracts and that nothing in project finance is mutually exclusive. Once completed, the delegates review the financial model for due diligence analysis, usually from a lender or third-party equity perspective. The final phase of this seminar uses
sophisticated modeling techniques, coupled with review of contractual language, to price the deal and negotiate off the financial model. Special consideration is given to more advanced project finance issues like off-take clauses, liquidated damages analysis and appropriate covenant definitions. The seminar’s overriding theme is to match the financial model as a highly-developed financial analysis tool with contractual language, deriving an appropriate risk-versus-reward structure.

This is an advanced seminar and is geared to the intermediate-to-advanced delegate.
