Services to Project Developers, Investors and Contractors requiring innovative financing structures for Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and Public Private Partnership (PPP) Projects (Privatization, BOT, BOOT, Concessions…).


Project Financing or Project Finance involves raising funds to finance a capital investment project in which the lender looks primarily to the revenues expected to be generated by the project itself for the repayment of its loan rather than to the general credit of the project sponsor. Project financing is commonly used as a financing method in capital-intensive industries for projects requiring large investments of funds, such as the construction of power plants, pipelines, tall roads, hotels, tourist resorts, industrial facilities and heavy manufacturing plants. The Services offered by Boyadjian & Associates are divided into four distinct areas of activity, all of which compliment our Project Financing activities as a whole:


Feasibility Study




As one of the first steps in a Project Financing, Boyadjian and Associates prepares the feasibility study showing the financial and economical viability of the Project. At Boyadjian & Associates, we analyze every technical, financial and other aspect of the Project, including the time frame for completion of the various phases, and clearly set forth all of the financial and other assumptions upon which the conclusions of the study are based.




By using a wide range of modeling software, we are able to facilitate the early investigation into the financial feasibility of the Project including total Project costs, cash flow forecasts, projected financial statements, project's debt capacity, etc. We undertake financial projections, sensitivity analysis and advice on project development matters in discreet forum with knowledgeable industry professionals. Among the services contained in our feasibility studies:

  • Review of macroeconomic and microeconomic conditions.

  • Initial due diligence on partners' qualifications.

  • Basic technological feasibility of the project.

  • Underlying economic rationale of the project, utility demand.

  • Analysis of the appropriate size and technology of the project.

  • Financial modeling: Capital costs, Direct Cost, Operating Cost, Selling Price.

  • Preparation of cost estimates for project development, construction, operation and management.

  • Development of project financial model with best available data to arrive at IRR.

  • Writing brief project profile to be used in communication with other participants.

  • Detailed engineering and technical feasibility, environmental compliance.


Funding Advice




A financial plan for a Project includes arrangements for both construction financing and permanent financing. The development of a specific financing plan requires a careful analysis of the potential sources of funds in relation to the Project's year-to-year funds requirements, available cash flow, and availability of credit support mechanism to support project debt.


Boyadjian and Associates is familiar with both the process of raising capital, and the characteristics of specific investment firms. Once the developer has made the decision to raise development funds, we: 

  • Find a foreign partner if you don't already have one.

  • Select appropriate partners: other developers, equipment vendors, O&M firms, EPC firms, passive equity investors and development assistance funds.

  • Approach export credit agencies, multilateral institutions, and other providers of financial support.

  • Negotiate terms of finance.

In all instances though the process of securing such financing and guarantees can be cumbersome and time consuming. Once a well-written Project Information Memorandum has been completed and all other development tasks have been finalized, Boyadjian and Associates will help you create investment syndicates and manage competitive solicitations to ensure best financing terms.


Risk Analysis and Assessment




Every investment and financing decision involving allocation of resources under uncertain conditions is associated with some risk, which is in effect, either assumed in the expectation of a higher return, or is transferred to others through hedging and/or contracting arrangements.


Boyadjian and Associates has the ability to understand, measure, and manage risk. Our Risk Analysis and Assessment Team recognizes the uncertainty that surrounds the time and price forecast of the project by accepting that there is a variety of possible outcomes of a range of identifiable risks. We are able to allocate project-specific risks to parties best able to bear them, control performance risk through incentives, and use market hedging instruments for covering market-wide risks arising from fluctuations. We assess the following project-related risks:




  • Completion Risk

  • Delay Risk

  • Cost Overrun Risk

  • Technology Risk

  • Project Management Risk

  • Subcontracting Risk

  • Credit Risk

  • Contractual Risk

The appropriate legal structure for a project depends on a variety of business, legal, accounting, tax, and regulatory factors. Boyadjian and Associates has the experience and skills to advice our prestigious clients on the Legal Form of the Company, the Construction Contract, the Feedstock Supply Agreements, the Product Offtake deal, Operations Maintenance and Management Agreements, and the Loan and Security Agreement.
