This subject provides students with an advanced knowledge of concepts and issues relating to project finance techniques. Students will develop the skills to determine a project’s debt-carrying capacity and equity requirements and then be able to formulate a funding solution for that particular situation. Practical case studies will be used to demonstrate how project financing applies to resource projects and infrastructure developments. The way deals are structured, including the mix of debt, equity and unique capital sources, will be a key focus, as will the valuation and risk issues associated with project finance. The current trend towards private investment in government assets will be examined in the context of infrastructure finance deals and you will gain an insight into the tendering and bid process used for these transactions.
This subject contributes to the corporate finance major.
