  1. 1. Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.comChap 1: IntroductionProject financing is an innovative and timely financing technique that has been used onmany high-profile corporate projects, including Euro Disneyland and the Eurotunnel.Employing a carefully engineered financing mix, it has long been used to fund large-scalenatural resource projects, from pipelines and refineries to electric-generating facilitiesand hydro-electric projects. Increasingly, project financing is emerging as the preferredalternative to conventional methods of financing infrastructure and other large-scaleprojects worldwide.Project Financing discipline includes understanding the rationale for project financing,how to prepare the financial plan, assess the risks, design the financing mix, and raise thefunds. In addition, one must understand the cogent analyses of why some projectfinancing plans have succeeded while others have failed. A knowledge-base is requiredregarding the design of contractual arrangements to support project financing; issues forthe host government legislative provisions, public/private infrastructure partnerships,public/private financing structures; credit requirements of lenders, and how to determinethe projects borrowing capacity; how to analyze cash flow projections and use them tomeasure expected rates of return; tax and accounting considerations; and analyticaltechniques to validate the projects feasibilityProject finance is different from traditional forms of finance because the credit riskassociated with the borrower is not as important as in an ordinary loan transaction; whatis most important is the identification, analysis, allocation and management of every riskassociated with the project.The purpose of this project is to explain, in a brief and general way, the manner in whichrisks are approached by financiers in a project finance transaction. Such riskminimization lies at the heart of project finance.In a no recourse or limited recourse project financing, the risks for a financier are great.Since the loan can only be repaid when the project is operational, if a major part of the 1

The assetsthat remain are usually highly specialized and possibly in a remote location. If saleable,they may have little value outside the project. Therefore, it is not surprising thatfinanciers, and their advisers, go to substantial efforts to ensure that the risks associatedwith the project are reduced or eliminated as far as possible. It is also not surprising thatbecause of the risks involved, the cost of such finance is generally higher and it is moretime consuming for such finance to be provided.Project finance is the financing of long-term infrastaructure and industrial projects basedupon a complex financial structure where project debt and equity are used to finance theproject. Usually, a project financing scheme involves a number of equity investors,known as sponsors, as well as a syndicate of banks which provide loans to the operation.The loans are most commonly non-recourse loans, which are secured by the project itselfand paid entirely from its cash flow, rather than from the general assets orcreditworthiness of the project sponsors. The financing is typically secured by all of theproject assets, including the revenue-producing contracts. Project lenders are given a lienon all of these assets, and are able to assume control of a project if the project companyhas difficulties complying with the loan terms.Generally, a special purpose entity is created for each project, thereby shielding otherassets owned by a project sponsor from the detrimental effects of a project failure. As aspecial purpose entity, the project company has no assets other than the project. Capitalcontribution commitments by the owners of the project company are sometimesnecessary to ensure that the project is financially sound. Project finance is often morecomplicated than alternative financing methods. It is most commonly used in the mining,transportation, telecommunication and public utility industries.Risk identification and allocation is a key component of project finance. A project may besubject to a number of technical, environmental, economic and political risks, particularlyin developing countries and emerging markets. Financial institutions and project sponsorsmay conclude that the risks inherent in project development and operation areunacceptable (unfinanceable). To cope with these risks, project sponsors in these 2

The various patterns of implementation aresometimes referred to as "project delivery methods." The financing of these projects mustalso be distributed among multiple parties, so as to distribute the risk associated with theproject while simultaneously ensuring profits for each party involved. 3

Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.comChap 2: AN OVERVIEW2.1 Banking SectorThere have been major structural changes in the financial sector since banking sectorreforms were introduced in India in 1992. Since then Banks have been lendingaggressively providing funds towards infrastructure sector. Major policy measuresinclude phased reductions in statutory pre-emption like cash reserve and statutoryliquidity requirements and deregulation of interest rates on deposits and lending, exceptfor a select segment. The diversification of ownership of banking institutions is yetanother feature which has enabled private shareholding in the public sector banks,through listing on the stock exchanges, arising from dilution of the Governmentownership. Foreign direct investment in the private sector banks is now allowed up to 74per cent.The co-existence of the public sector, private sector and the foreign banks has generatedcompetition in the banking sector leading to a significant improvement in efficiency andcustomer service. The share of private and foreign banks in total assets increased to 31.5per cent at end-March 2007 from 27.6 per cent at end-March 2006 and less than 10.0 percent at the inception of reforms. • The nationalized banks have more branches than any other types of banks in India. Now there are about 33,627 Branches in India, as on March 2005. • Investments of scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) also saw an increase from Rs 8,04,199 crore in March 2005 to Rs 8,43,081 crore in the same month of 2006. • Indias retail-banking assets are expected to grow at the rate of 18% a year over the next four years (2006-2010). • Retail loan to drive the growth of retail banking in future. Housing loan account for major chunk of retail loan. 4

Before offering credit to an organization,its financial health must be analyzed. Credit should be disbursed only after ascertainingsatisfactory financial performance. Based on the financial health of an organization,banks assign credit ratings. These credit ratings are used to fix the interest rate andquantum of installment.This study aims to analyze the credit health of organizations that approach Union Bank ofIndia for foreign exchange credit facilities. After analyzing credit health, the credit ratingis determined. On the basis of credit rating, the interest rate guidelines circular isconsulted to fix a price for the credit facilities i.e. determine the interest rate.2.2.2 Credit disbursement at Union Bank of IndiaThis project was undertaken at the Industrial Finance Branch of Union Bank of India, atthe Credit Department. Financial requirements for Project Finance and Working Capitalpurposes are taken care of at the Credit Department. Companies that intend to seek creditfacilities approach the bank. Primarily, credit is required for following purposes:- 1. Working capital finance 6
  7. 7. Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.com 2. Term loan for mega projects 3. non fund based Limits Like Letter of Guarantee, Letter of CreditCompanies present audited balance sheets of the current and previous years. These areused to determine the financial health, turnover trends and rise and fall of profitability.Then credit rating is done.The financial health and credit rating are theoretical methods for determining the rightinterest rate. However, in practice, banks consider other factors such as history withclient, market reputation and future benefits with clients. Thus, a difference existsbetween theory and practice.2.2.3 Objectives of the project  To assess the financial health of organizations that approach Union Bank of India for credit for import export purposes. This would entail undertaking of the following procedures:  Analysis of past and present financial statements  Analysis of Balance Sheet  Analysis of Cash Flow Statements  Examination of Profitability statements  Examination of projected financial statements  Examination of CMA data  To assess the suitability of the company for disbursement of credit. This would involve the following actions:  Use of credit rating charts  Evaluation of management risk  Evaluation of financial risk  Evaluation of market-industry risk  Evaluation of the facility  Evaluation of compliance of sanction terms 7

  17. 17. Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.com3.2 CREDIT REPORT AND CREDIT RATINGThe credit report is an important determinant of an individuals financial credibility. Theyare used by lenders to judge a persons creditworthiness. They also help the personconcerned to narrow down on the financial problem areas.Credit report is a document, which comprises detailed information about the creditpayment history of an applicant. It is mostly used by the lenders to determine the creditworthiness of an applicant. The business credit reports provide information on thebackground of a company. This assists one to take crucial business related decisions.People can also assess the amount of business risk associated with a company and thendecide whether they would be comfortable in providing them with credit facilities. Thedegree of interest that would be shown by investors in their company can also be gaugedfrom the business credit reports as they can get an idea of the conception of theircustomers regarding themselves. Since these records are updated at regular intervals oftime they enable people to identify the risk levels associated with a business as well as itsfuture. These reports also allow businesses to get detailed information about the financialstatus of business partners and suppliers.What Is A Corporate Credit Rating?Ratings can be assigned to short-term and long-term debt obligations as well as securities,loans, preferred stock and insurance companies. Long-term credit ratings tend to be moreindicative of a countrys investment surroundings and/or a companys ability to honor itsdebt responsibilities. . The ratings therefore assess an entitys ability to pay debts.There are various organization who perform credit rating for various businessorganization.Union Bank of India follows a finely defined Credit Rating Model for assessing thecreditworthiness of the applicant. The credit rating model asses various aspects of theprojects and assigns scores against them thereby determining the risk level involved withthe project.It is divided in Four Sections: 17
  18. 18. Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.com 1. Rating of the Borrower  Financial Risk  Management Risk 2. Market Condition/ Demand Situation 3. Rating of the Facility 4. Business Consideration 5. Cash Flow related parameters1) Rating of the Borrower: This part of credit rating model deals with assessing thefinancial and managerial ability of the borrower. The financial ability of the firm isderived by calculating ratios that determine the short term and long term financialposition of the firmShort term ratios include Current Ratio, determines the liquidity position of thecompany over a period of one year. The current ratio is an indication of a firms marketliquidity and ability to meet creditors demands. It is excess of current assets over currentliability. If current liabilities exceed current assets (the current ratio is below 1), then thecompany may have problems meeting its short-term obligations. If the current ratio is toohigh, then the company may not be efficiently using its current assets.According to the guidelines given to UBI the ideal level is at 1.33:1 however theacceptable level is at 1.17:1.However at times current ratio may not be a true indicator, the current ratio for roadprojects is very high but this does not indicate that the company is not using its assetswell but the ratio is high because the activity involves more in dealing with current assets.Hence it is important for the evaluator to understand the nature of the industry.Long term ratio include Debt Equity Ratio is a financial ratio indicating the relativeproportion of equity and debt used to finance a companys assets. This ratio is also knownas Risk, Gearing or Leverage. A high debt equity ratio is not preferable by an investor asthe company already has aquired high amount of funds from market thereby reducing theinvestor share over the securities available, inreasing the risk. 18
  19. 19. Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.comIt is aslo important for the lender bank to assess the firms debt paying capacity over aperiod. Such capacity is derived by calculating ratio like Debt Serice Coverage Ratiominimum acceptable level is 1.50.It also necessary for the lender to determine the ability of the firm to achieve theprojected growth by evaluating the projected sales with actuals.However such parameterremains non applicable if the business is new.Finacial risk evaluation is oly one of the parameter and not thje only parameter fordetermining the risk level. It is important to evaluate the Management Risk also whileevaluating the risk relaing to borrower.It is the management of the company that acts as guiding force for the firm. The keymanagerial personnel should bear the capacity to bail out the company frm crisissituation. Inorder to remain competitive it is essential to take initiatives. Such skills aredeveloped over years of experience, thus for better performance it is required to have ateam of well qualified and expirienced personnel.2) Market potential / Demand SituationA Company does not operate in isolation there are various market forces that acts ineither favourable or unfavraouble manner towards its performance. Thus the rating wouldnot give true picture if does take market or demand situation in consideration.The demand supply situation / market Potential plays an important role in determiningthe growth level of the company likei) Level of competition : monolpoly , favourable , unfavourableii) seasonality in demand : affected by short term seasonality, long term seasonality ormay not be affected by seasonality in demand.iii)Raw Material Availablity:iv)Locational Issues like proximity to market, inputs, infratstructure: Favourable,neutral, unfavourable.v)Technology ie, proven Technology- not to be changed in immeditate future,technology undergo change, outdated technolgy.vi)Capacity utilisation 19
  20. 20. Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.com3)Rating of the Facility:The company can start functioning only after completing statutary obligations laid downby the governing authority. Such statutary obligation involves obtaining licenses, permitsfor ensuring smooth operations. Perparation and Submission of Finacial Statements,Stock statements in the standard format within the given time schedule.4)Business Consideration:The length of relationship with the bank enables the lender to assess the previousperformance of the account holder. A good track record acts in the favour of theapplicant, however a under perfomance make the lender more vigiliant.The income value to the bank also given due consideration.Thus Credit Rating of the Business takes into consideration various aspects that directlyor indiretly bears an effects the performance of the business.After evaluating the risk level involved the lender bank decided on lending Interest Rate.In UBI they are catagorised in 9 segements 1. lowest Risk CR-1 2. Low Risk CR-2 3. Medium Risk CR- 3 4. Moderate/ Satisfatory Risk CR- 4 5. Fair Risk CR- 5 6. High Risk CR- 6 7. Higher Risk CR- 7 8. highest risk CR- 8 9. NPA CR- 9In UBI, a business receiving Credit Rating above level 6 are not considered good frompoint of investment and thus are avoided. 20
  21. 21. Downloaded from a2zmba.blogspot.com3.3 DETERMINATION OF INTEREST RATE The interest rate is determined from the interest rate guidelines circular. This circular is regularly updated to reflect the bank’s latest credit policies. The rupee credit is based on BPLR and the foreign exchange loans are based on LIBOR. The guidelines define how much interest rate is to be assigned for a particular credit rating and credit duration. However, credit rating and its use in determining interest rate is a theoretical concept and the bank may allow a reduction in interest rate under the following conditions:  Good Client The organization is a long term client and brings good business to the bank. The organization’s actions show that it intends to become a long term customer of the bank  Banking Consortium The organization is seeking credit from a consortium of banks. In some cases like this, the lead bank might decide the interest rate and all the member banks of the consortium follow this interest rate. 3.4 TERM SHEETFollowing a favrouable feasibility check, credit rating the next step is preparing termsheet .

The Project is able to sustain the increased fuel cost and its debt servicingcapacity remains satisfactory with an average DSCR of 1.58 and minimum DSCR of1.37. The impact of any fuel price escalation on the projected financials is partlymitigated on account of the pass-through effect in the power sale tariff applicable toGridco. It may however be noted that since most of the coal requirement for the Projectwill be met from the captive coal block allotted to the company, the company will be ableto have a better control over the coal price thereby reducing it exposure to any escalationsin coal price.Decrease in Plant PLF by 5%Under the base case projections, the operations of the project have been projected at aPLF of 80%. Sensitivity has been carried out for the scenario of the Project running at alower PLF i.e. 75%. It has been observed that the Project is able to withstand theoperations at a lower PLF and its debt servicing capacity (Average DSCR: 1.49, MinDSCR: 1.29) is satisfactory. Considering the better operational performance of existingIPPs in the country vis a vis state sector projects, the situation of a PLF lower than 80%seems unlikely.Increase in RTL Interest Rate by 1%Sensitivity has also been carried out for increase in the RTL interest rate by 1% over thebase case interest rate of 11.5% for Senior debt and 13.5% for Subordinated Debt.

Hence, it can be concluded that the proposed power project willbe able to withstand adverse circumstances and the debt serviceability is satisfactory,even under adverse circumstances.Decrease in Power Sale Tariff through PTC by 5% during Year 1-5Under the base case projections, tariff for power sale to PTC has been maintained at Rs.2.60 per kWh for Year 1-5 and Rs 2.34 per kWh for subsequent years. Sensitivity hasbeen carried out for the scenario of the power being sold at 5% lower than the base casetariff i.e. Rs. 2.47 per kWh. As seen above, the Project is able to withstand the operationsat a lower tariff and its debt servicing capacity (Average DSCR: 1.56, Min DSCR: 1.33)is satisfactory.Increase in Project cost by 5%A sensitivity has been carried out for 5% increase in the works cost which have estimatedat Rs. 2294 crore in the base case. The Project is able to sustain a 5% escalation in capitalcost comfortably and its debt servicing capacity (Average DSCR: 1.54, Min DSCR: 1.34)remains satisfactory.KEY POINTS: 1. Sensitivity analysis was done. The results of which are as follows:-  When the power sale tariff to “PTC” ( PTC India Ltd) are decreased by 5% the Average DSCR: 1.56, Min DSCR: 1.33 . This is above the benchmark level.  When project cost is increased by 5% Average DSCR: 1.54, Min DSCR: 1.34. This is above benchmark levels and is considered favourable.  In case of increase in RTL Interest Rate by 1% the Average DSCR: 1.54, Min DSCR: 1.34) remains satisfactory 37

Hence, it can be concluded that the proposed power project willbe able to withstand adverse circumstances. 2. The profitability estimates are sensitive to fluctuation in sales. 3. The projected Debt Equity ratio and Current Ratio are at satisfactory level. As the project implementation is yet to commence, offering any comments on financial indicators would not be relevant at this juncture as the same would go on changing. 4. According to internal credit rating, the company has been rated as CR-3. 5. Primary fuel requirements for the Project will be met with from the Coal linkage from Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd (MCL) and Captive Mandakini coal block in Talcher coalfields, Orissa .JKL Pvt. Ltd. will enter into separate long-term Fuel Supply Agreements with the Mining JVC and MCL for supply of coal from the captive block and coal linkage respectively, taken together would be adequate for requirement of proposed 600 MW for its entire project life. 6. The company has already into Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) with Gridco for sale of 25% of the power.Company has also entered into HOA(Heads of Agreement) with PTC for sale of balance75% power at reasonably attractive tariff. 7.

Thefunds of depositor’s i.e general public are mobilized by means of such advance /investment. Thus it extremely important for the lender bank to assess the risk associatedwith credit, thereby ensure the security for the funds deposited by the depositors.In UBI the credit appraisal is done by thorough study of the project which involvesFollowing. 1) Evaluation of Management: A detailed study about the promoters is carried out in order to ensure promoters are experienced in the line of business and are capable to implement and run the project 2) Technical Feasibility: A detailed study about the technical aspects is done to determine the technical soundness of the project 3) Financial Viability: A detailed study relating to financial viability of the project is done; thereby ensuring that project will generate sufficient surplus to repay the lan installment and interest 4) Risk analysis: it determines the risk associated with the project this is done by performing a Sensitivity analysis and Credit Rating. With Sensitivity Analysis the projects capacity to service debts under worsened conditions is determined. Credit rating, provides rating for various parameters like management, financial, market and so, thereby determine the credit worthiness of the borrower 5) It is on the basis of the credit risk level, collateral securities to be given by the borrower are determined.This shows Union Bank of India has sound system for credit appraisal. 41
