Abstract and Keywords

This article aims to identify the essential elements of a project finance deal. It examines this issue from the standpoint of a sponsoring enterprise that has to assess the feasibility of the deal from the financial point of view with the help of its financial advisor. The term “financial advisor” often refers to banks that act as mandated lead arrangers in syndicated loans. Reviewing project finance from the project sponsor standpoint means we will be able to assess the advantages offered by this technique compared to traditional corporate debt. This approach also enables us to see how deals are structured and what conditions make them bankable for creditors (banks or bondholders).

Keywords: project finance, financial advisor, corporate debt, creditors, bondholders, project sponsor
