Documents relating to a typical project financing transaction can be divided into three broad categories: an intercreditor agreement is reached between the main creditors of the project company. This is the agreement reached between the main creditors with respect to the financing of projects. The main creditors often enter into the Intercreditor agreement to regulate the terms and common relationships between lenders with respect to the borrower`s obligations. For example, Acme Coal Co. imports coal. Energen Inc. provides energy to consumers. Both companies agreed to build a power plant to achieve their respective objectives. As a general rule, the first step would be to sign a Memorandum of Understanding that would set out the intentions of both parties. This would be followed by an agreement on the creation of a joint venture. The basic terms of a loan agreement include the following provisions.
Project financing is a long-term method of financing major infrastructure and industry projects based on cash flows for the finished project and not on investor own financing. Project financing structures typically include a number of participatory investors as well as a consortium of banks that lend to the project. In general, an assignment unit is created for each project, which protects the other assets of a project sponsor from the adverse effects of a project failure. As an ad hoc entity, the project company has no assets other than the project. Capital commitments from the owners of the project company are sometimes necessary to guarantee the financial scope of the project or to ensure the commitment of the sponsors to the funders. Project financing is often more complex than alternative funding methods. Traditionally, project financing has been used most in the mining, transportation, telecommunications and energy industries, as well as in sports and entertainment facilities. Many of the standard funding documents used in a single, conceded transaction are also required as part of a project financing operation. Finally, project financing is a form of unionized credit (see practical note: bilateral agreements, union agreements and clubs). Host Government/adjudicating authority: the government of the country where the project is based will likely be involved in granting authorisations and authorisations, both at the beginning and for the duration of a project.
