As the Financial Environment Continues to Evolve, so will the Field of Project Financing
In order to keep up with this dynamic discipline, you need the most up–to–date information possible. That′s why author John Finnerty has returned with the Third Edition of Project Financing. While written to reflect current conditions and address how project financing continues to enjoy a prominent place among the most important financing techniques in the global economy this reliable resource still remains true to the previous edition′s successful approach of making a complex topic understandable. Using updated examples and case studies, including Euro Disneyland, the Eurotunnel Project, and a cogeneration project, that skillfully illustrate how to apply the analytical techniques described in the book, this new edition covers the rationale for project financing, how to prepare the financial plan, assess the risks, design the financing mix, raise the funds, and much more.
Drawing on his vast experience in the field, Finnerty details each step of the process, describing the circumstances in which it is most likely to be advantageous, how to craft contractual arrangements to allocate risks and rewards among interested parties, and how to deal with government, legal, tax, and financial issues. Along the way, Finnerty offers up–to–date insights on everything from how political risks can adversely affect a project and modeling project cash flows to international debt financing.
In addition, this Third Edition contains completely new chapters on Sharia–compliant project financing as well as the analysis and financing of renewable/sustainable projects. Here, you′ll gain a firm understanding of how Sharia–compliant financing can be tailored to large projects in Islamic regions of the world and discover the special considerations that come into play with renewable/sustainable project financing.
Easily the most complete, up–to–date explanation of the topic available today, Project Financing, Third Edition blends sound research–based theory with practical hands–on advice to illustrate all of the steps necessary to successfully finance a project in today′s competitive business environment.
