4 July 10AM BST

Understanding how project finance contracts translate into the financial model can be difficult, particularly when interpreting definitions and the application of calculations.  Financial ratios are an important area of the project finance documents which need to be carefully drafted and reflected accurately in the financial model.  

Join us in this free webinar where we will discuss the role, definition and calculation of project finance ratios with real world examples of drafting and financial modelling approaches.  Hosted by Forvis Mazars and CCC Training, this webinar will offer perspective from both a financial modeller (Leigh Tomlinson, Forvis Mazars) and a lawyer (Calvin Walker, CCC Training).

Key learning outcomes:

  • Understand the role and legal definition of financial ratios (and their components) in project finance documentation
  • Learn how and where financial covenants and ratios are deployed in project finance documentation
  • Review examples of drafting of project finance ratios and financial covenants in loan documentation
  • Gain insight into the best practise approaches to modelling financial ratios in Excel
  • Learn how to effectively extract key metrics such as the minimum & average ratios from your models
