Project Finance Modelling Best Practice

  • 5/5
  • 4 days in person

The bread and butter of project finance modelling courses.

This best practice financial modelling course gives delegates a thorough grounding in everything they need to know when building and analysing a project finance model. The last two days will focus on the financing of the project and how to develop a robust financial plan for investors and lenders. 

Course Overview

What to Expect

The course is broken into 4 sessions/days:  

1. Setting up the model and main cash flow drivers     

Starting from a blank spreadsheet, delegates start by laying out the model structure and the main cashflows.   

2. Timing, Tax and Capex   

Once delegates have balanced the balance sheet, they work on the project timing and tax calculations (from VAT tax to capital allowances).   

3. Debt and Equity    

This session is focused on the funding structure using senior and subordinated debt as well as equity circularities. 

4. Analysis and setting the price   

The course ends with debt analysis using debt cover ratios and learning how to set the bidding price by using macros.
