Project Finance Application Procedure

Initial enquiries concerning project finance must be made via our online Project Finance Enquiry form.

 

The online Project Finance Enquiry form enables you to quickly provide us with concise information about your project without your having to take time to complete a comprehensive application form with details of a project which may not interest us.

 

Our analysts evaluate projects individually, so if you have more than one project you should complete one copy of the form for each project for which you are seeking funding.

 

After you have submitted the Project Finance enquiry form, our analysts will quickly determine whether your project is likely to be of interest to us or not.

Project Documentation

 

High quality project documentation is absolutely essential for the success of your project. Globally, there are more projects seeking finance than there is international finance available to fund them. Consequently, in this competitive financial environment, investors, who are busy people, do not waste time on projects with inadequately prepared documentation. Lenders have to be absolutely convinced that your project is a solid investment before they will invest in it. Your project documentation is the primary means of achieving this.

 

Documentation needed to project finance.

 

Each project is unique but each project requires documentation produced to international investment standards typically including:

 

1. a market feasibility study with competition analysis;

2. a financial feasibility study modeled on cash flow with detailed departmental costs, profit centre projections,

3. a ten year forecast, profit and loss projections,

4. a risk analysis, hard and soft costs and detailed exit year calculations;

5. a business plan with professional management structure and non-compete agreements;

6. a development budget with a detailed statement of all expenditure to be incurred prior to the project opening including contingency provisions;

7. an initial outline architectural master plan;

8. a final architectural master plan and a private placement memorandum with an executive summary of the feasibility studies, due diligence search findings, architectural concepts and profit and loss calculations.

 

Additionally, an environmental impact assessment and a social impact assessment, including a defense anticipating possible objections from the public, local or government authorities or other organizations may be required. Each project also typically requires the appropriate local and government authority permits to allow the construction of the project.
