Project Finance & Privatisation

We develop new techniques and structures for innovative partnerships between the public and the private sectors.

The interface between the public and private sectors is an area of great opportunity and innovation. It is now recognised just how much can be achieved with private finance in strategic industries.

But, different economic objectives and political landscapes mean new challenges. Governments can stake their credibility on the outcome of transactions or restructuring. Corporates recognise the attraction of entering new markets but are also aware of the risk if they don't get their proposals right.

Our work for the public and private sectors includes:

  • Scoping and developing the project and the development of the procurement process;
  • Structuring the deal and arranging finance for the private sector;
  • Negotiating through to financial close.
In privatisation we focus on:
  • Privatisation - corporatisation, privatisation (buy/sell), industry structure, project feasibility, business and strategic planning and outsourcing advice;
  • Economic and Regulatory advice - cost of capital studies, pricing, competition policy, asset valuations, third party access;
  • Corporate Representation - market entry strategies, government policy advice, foreign investment;
  • Utilities - providing services in the areas of market reform, industry structure, business strategy, regulation, wholesale markets, mergers and acquisitions.
We are currently engaged as Strategic Business and Financial advisor of the PNG Privatisation Commission in relation to the proposed privatisation of Telikom and Post PNG. The Privatisation Act of 1999 was introduced to establish the Privatisation Commission and define its objects, functions and powers, and for related purposes.

Our team in PNG includes PNG nationals as well as expatriates from all over the world, and actively draw from PwC's global business , resulting in the combination of local knowledge and global expertise to deliver the best possible solution, tailor-made for your specific requirements and opportunities, and the ability to execute cross-border assignments.
