Equity Support Agreement Definition

Project financing is the long-term financing of infrastructure and industrial projects, based on the project`s expected cash flows and not on the balance sheets of its promoters. Typically, a project finance structure includes a number of investors called «sponsors» and a «consortium» of banks or other credit institutions that provide loans for the operation. These are typically non-recourse loans that are secured by the project`s asset funds and fully paid for by the project`s cash flows and not by the general assets or creditworthiness of the project sponsors, a decision supported in part by financial modelling.
