Advantages and Characteristics of Project Financing


Project financing is usually chosen by project developers in order to inter alia:
  • eliminate or reduce the lender’s recourse to the sponsors

  • permit an off-balance sheet treatment of the debt financing

  • maximize the leverage of a project

  • circumvent any restrictions or covenants binding the sponsors under their respective financial obligations

  • avoid any negative impact of a project on the credit standing of the sponsors

  • obtain better financial conditions when the credit risk of the project is better than the credit standing of the sponsors

  • allow the lenders to appraise the project on a segregated and stand-alone basis

  • obtain a better tax treatment for the benefit of the project, the sponsors or both

  • reduce political risks affecting a project
