Every project has a unique set of variables that contribute to project risk. Achieving an acceptable return on investment for any project requires a thorough understanding of risks and having a well-crafted plan to address them.
Transaction Advisory from 1898 and Co., part of Burns & McDonnell, is unique in the marketplace. By defining the most important risks, investors gain a much-needed independent assessment of each project prior to committing capital. Our due diligence focuses and prioritizes risks based on its potential to affect project returns and debt service coverage:
Knowing where the key technical risks lie can mean the difference between success and failure.
Actionable risk assessment is the goal with every engagement. Whether advising on a transaction – such as a potential acquisition, merger or divestment – or a strategic plan to construct of retrofit a facility, we use a standardized approach to due diligence and customize the assessment to a particular project.
The results of our technical due diligence are assessment of the project completion, technical and operational risks which may be directly incorporated into the project financial model in the form of sensitivity cases so the investor can make more informed decisions.
We help build the bridge between technical and commercial issues. Our services do not end with technical due diligence. We assist investors with financial closing support and post-close project monitoring.
We are a partner during the documentation process, providing input on drafting technical schedules and terms such as asset descriptions, performance test protocols, technical specifications, reporting requirements, and sizing of reserves and working capital.
We also monitor construction of a project to give independent assessments of project budget and schedule performance, as well as reviewing construction draw requests.
In any project or transaction, value is delivered via informed analysis. This is derived from conversations with all parties involved and then bridging the gaps between technical and commercial issues.
In any project or transaction, value is delivered via informed analysis. This is derived from conversations with all parties involved and then bridging the gaps between technical and commercial issues. Each party to a transaction views risk and complexity differently. As an independent adviser, we help all parties come to the same understanding of how assets are likely to perform and the expected range of outcomes.
