Reviews

"International Project Financing (Fourth Edition) is a comprehensive volume, and is organized in meticulous detail. The book provides a strong blend of practical, as well as legal, information, so that this Fourth Edition will be useful to both the commercial practitioner and project counsel alike. Sprinkled liberally throughout the text are helpful boxes for easy reference, to provide the reader with "Planning Notes," "Sample Definitions" and "Sample Clauses." At the end of each chapter is a Checklist, which in and of itself is invaluable. The CD-ROM that accompanies the book provides a wealth of sample documentation across every conceivable functional need (65 documents in all).

As befits the title, the first substantive chapter provides a thorough presentation of "Host Country" issues to be addressed. This is followed by equally excellent chapters on all components of a project financing, from the Feasibility Study which gets everything started, to thorough sections on Credit, Security, Partnership and other key elements of project documentation. There are also sector-specific chapters, which provide clear guidance in areas such as Mining, Sea Transportation and Electricity Generation. It is extremely helpful that references in the text will point you specifically to the relevant sample document in the accompanying CD-ROM.

Because of its depth of detail on all relevant legal aspects, combined with its helpful and practical discussions on the commercial level, International Project Financing (Fourth Edition) should be on the bookshelf of every executive involved in the project finance field, whether a lawyer, developer, investor, lender or vendor."

-Robert O. Gurman, Professorial Lecturer in International Economics, Johns Hopkins University -School of Advanced International Studies
