Project Finance Advanced Modeling in Excel is a master-level class and focuses uniquely on project finance and its related modeling issues. After reviewing some basic elements of project finance, the participants are given a full suite of project documents and macroeconomic information that are indicative to any infrastructure project. Immediately following is a step-by-step procedure of building a complex equity case model. This phase of the course is to demonstrate how contracts dovetail and that nothing in project finance is mutually exclusive.

  • Create models that are easy to navigate without forfeiting proper deal sophistication and analysis

  • Produce a robust model from feasibility stages through project documentation to financial close

  • Match the financial model to the project and finance documents

  • Use financial models to guide negotiations and decision-making

  • Review for specific financing due-diligence

  • Learn from case studies, anecdotal successes and shortcomings

  • Engage in real-time commercial discussions with active project developers and legal experts

Course Participants Include:Financial Analysts, Investment & Evaluation Professionals, Business Development Planners, Mergers & Acquisitions Specialists, Accountants, Infrastructure Heads, Corporate & Structured Finance Teams, Joint Ventures Specialists, CFOs, Financial Directors

Once completed, the delegates review the model from a due-diligence analysis, usually taken from a lender's or third-party equity perspective. The final phase of this module uses sophisticated model techniques to help the practitioner price the deal. Special consideration is given to more advanced project-finance issues like liquidated damages analysis and appropriate security packages. The overriding theme of this specialty course is to use the model as a highly-developed financial analysis tool that reviews the appropriate risk-versus-reward profiles of project finance. Finally, the course demonstrates the power of Monte Carlo simulation analysis, creating a dynamic decision-making tool and elevating beyond simple static input and output spreadsheets. This is an advanced course and is geared to the intermediate-to-advanced delegate.

(NB: Prerequisite - A general knowledge of Excel, accounting principals and financial modeling is a minimum requirement for this course; particularly, the ability to generate a Statement of Cash Flows from an Income Statement and Balance Sheet. It is strongly suggested that those delegates with limited financial modeling experience consider taking Vair's Financial Modeling and Analysis course)
