- Produce a robust model from feasibility stages through project documentation to financial close
- Identify and quantify the risks of the project through the model - from sponsor, participant and lender viewpoints

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.

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 executive 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. By employing ModelRisk software, 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.
