Project finance / Public to Private Partnerships

PwC has been involved in the largest infrastructure financings in Europe, which given the state of the credit markets created some challenges! The firm still retains a strong public sector franchise and the mega deals it was involved with were on the public side, but in addition it advised on a range of private sector deals. The three big road deals the firm was involved with were M25 in the UK, the A2 in Poland and the R1 in Slovakia. All were billion-plus Euro transactions.
