                                                               Short term

When are PPP‘s appropriate?
PPP‘s are essentially just a procurement alternative: decision should be based on which
alternative (concession, procurement, privatization) offers the best value for money

PPP‟s may be appropriate

        where the public sector wishes to maintain a degree of control over a strategic asset

        where the public sector must make a substantial financial contribution to a project to make it

        where a publicly owned, commercially oriented entity wishes to participate for commercial

Key government issues

 Budgetary considerations

 Time and cost of the tendering phase

 Government fear of loosing administrative power without parallel reduction of responsibilities

 Continuing necessity of governmental support (mixed models)

 Required know-how and experience of governmental agencies

 Political commitment to the PPP model is essential

PPP rewards for Private Sector
 Private partner

    Private partner must have an adequate return on his investments

    Interest in getting a construction contract, EPC contract,
     O&M contract

    Long term contract and revenues


    Higher margin and fees

    Long term relationship to public and private partners

Necessity of risk sharing

                 Risks shall be allocated to the party best able to manage
                                 and influence the specific risk:

    Government                         Private Partners             Supra-national Institutions
    - Land acquisition                 (Concessionaire, general     (EBRD, EIB, IFC etc.)
                                        contractor, operator)
    - Claims                                                        - Reducing political risk
                                       - Completion risk
    - Cultural inheritance                                          - Providing access to local
                                       - Most technical and           currency
    - Licences and permits
                                         operational risks
                                                                    - Accepting longer tenors
    - Change in law
                                       - Performance risk
    - Maybe subsidise cash
                                       - (Some) traffic risk
      flows or tolls thus bear
      (some) traffic risk              - Provide guarantees
    - Provide guarantees for           - Subordinated standby-
      debt facilities                    facilities

Financing issues

 „Bankable“ risk allocation

 Equity contribution depending on the financial feasibility of the Project and investor‟s expectations

 Strong government support (e.g. direct equity / debt guarantees)

 Strong revenue support: key financial risks (e.g. traffic, FX) must be borne by the government,
  shadow toll / availability concepts

 Currency risk: Projects generating mainly local currency income, however, local currency funding is
  not available for the whole amount needed

 Maturities needed according to business plan are not bankable at first sight and need careful
  structuring. Loan tenors can be enhanced through instruments provided by supra-national
  institutions to reach 15-20 years as probably required by the economics of the project.

 Adequate political risk coverage through the involvement of ECAs/MIGA and supra-nationals such
  as EIB and EBRD

Legal issues

 Transparency of the procurement process is a must

 Creating the legal structure, limited potential for standardisation

 Allocation of risks between private and public sector needs to be clearly defined

 Retain certain flexibility to adapt the contracts to a changing environment

 Find ways-out for possible events of early termination acceptable to all parties involved, i.e. public
  entity, investor as well as debt providers

 Compensation in case of early termination

 Change in law risk is often shared for general change in law. Public sector takes risk on
  discriminatory change in law.

 Create a bankable security structure

PPP Project Partners (1)
   Sponsors: equity provider (construction companies, infrastructure funds, individuals)

   Contractors: EPC contracts, long term maintenance, fixed price, date certain construction

   Subcontractors: provide specific services to the general contractor

   Operator/facility manager: has to take performance risk, part of long term maintenance

   Customers: clients who profit most from a well performing solution based on socially
    acceptable levels

PPP Project Partners (2)
   State entities: legal framework, early financial contribution, main party to the concession

   (International) Banks: financial structure, know-how provider, provide funding on a viable
    financial structure (DSCR, LLCR, DSRA)

   Financial/technical advisors: assist the different parties to find an optimal solution

   Market/insurance consultants: market overview, development, provide sufficient necessary
    insurance package for a project

   Lawyers: draft documentation considering the potentially different legal systems involved
