Financial Modeling
Overview of model design: what it can do and what it cannot do. What the model simulates and key drivers. Typical issues or questions the Model can answer: from Utility's perspective; from the bidder's perspective. Setting up the data: key information sheets and PPP assumptions. Overview of each data sheet, reporting and output format, financial statements.
Financial Modeling
Step-by-Step Model Simulation - Part 1
Model simulation of a typical infrastructure PPP. PPP Project structure and where key assumptions are input. Populating the Model and carrying out the simulation. Results interpretation. Tips on model simulations and important aspects of the process.
Financial Modeling
Step-by-Step Model Simulation - Part 2
Various model simulations in response to key issues from two perspectives: the government or utility's perspective (eg: expected tariff, impact of subsidy, impact of charging customers different tariffs, overall PPP cost, etc) and bidder's perspective ( eg: lowest bid tariff, expected returns, total profit, revenue risks, impact of financing charge, etc). Summary and conclusions. Clean copy of financial model.
