Project and Export Finance document sample

More Info
									Export Finance Ltd (EFL) is a corporate advisory firm that specialises in arranging project
finance for NZ companies undertaking medium to large scale projects off shore.

We have extensive banking experience and have arranged finance for projects in the US,
Turkey, Croatia, and Uruguay and are currently mandated for projects in South Korea,
Malta, Turkmenistan, Egypt, the US and Poland.

EFL has also arranged guarantees from the New Zealand Export Credit Office (NZECO – a
agency within Treasury) to support debt financed projects off shore.

Our breadth of knowledge and experience can deliver tangible financial benefits to
maximise company profitability. In addition to specific project finance and NZECO related
transactions we also offer consultancy services to SMEs covering debt advisory, detailed
financial modelling, company valuation, business plan preparation and contract negotiation.

EFL increases the likelihood of winning a project by virtue of securing the financing while
focusing on maximising project margin. Below is an example of a typical project finance
transaction utilising NZECO support and showing the interaction between EFL and other
interested parties
