Advisory on Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) and Privatization

Public Private Partnerships models have emerged as a preferred route for development of infrastructure projects across the developing world.

PPP models create a win-win situation for all the stakeholders as it ensures distribution of risks and rewards, roles & responsibilities between both the public and private entities. The key to successful PPPs lie in meticulous structuring and creating an enabling environment encompassing legislation, capacity building, organization and monitoring.

GreenStratos is a leading Public Private Partnership Advisory firm with extensive experience of planning, structuring and supporting roll-out of PPP models for development of key infrastructure across diverse sectors. We specialize in advising Governments and public sector entities on all aspects of developing and implementing public private partnerships. Our PPP advisory services cover project conceptualization, financial modeling, identification of PPP delivery options, defining final PPP model that creates a balance for both the proposing entity and the implementing entity, soliciting private sector participation, bid advisory and finalization of contracts and implementation support and monitoring.

We also support private investors and entities in identifying, evaluating and pursuing PPP investment opportunities in Africa. We work with our clients to understand their requirements, benchmarks and constraints and accordingly evaluate all critical parameters of the proposes PPP project such as regulatory mechanism, proposed terms and conditions, investment analysis, financing requirements, geo-political scenario, identification and assessment of risks etc. Planning for risk mitigation in PPPs is very important both in terms of timelines as well as project costs. We help our clients in managing risks by devising a comprehensive risk mitigation strategy to address potential delays that would otherwise adversely affect the financial returns. Further, we also advise clients on the social and environmental policy issues relevant to the project.
