Designing, Structuring, and Financing Private and Public Projects
- Stefano Gatti, Professor at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy; consultant for banks and manufacturing firms in Italy and a trainer for managers and government members in Russia, Africa and China.
This book presents comprehensive coverage of project finance in Europe and North America. The Second Edition features two new case studies, all new pedagogical supplements including end-of-chapter questions and answers, and insights into the recent market downturn. The author provides a complete description of the ways a project finance deal can be organized-from industrial, legal, and financial standpoints-and the alternatives available for funding it. After reviewing recent advances in project finance theory, he provides illustrations and case studies. At key points Gatti brings in other project finance experts who share their specialized knowledge on the legal issues and the role of advisors in project finance deals.
