Capcora supports German onshore wind developer in financial modelling.

Frankfurt am Main, 06.04.2017

The consulting firm Capcora, specialized on real assets, has signed a service agreement for financial modelling. The customer is an experienced German onshore wind developer. The aim of the collaboration is to replace the old calculation tool with a new and more powerful financial model created by Capcora and to cooperate closely with the assessment of wind parks.

"A solid financial model is the basis for successful business operations. Due to the increasing market transparency and the resulting reduction of information asymmetries on the one hand, as well as the rapidly changing market conditions and increasing complexity on the other side, it becomes even more important to be well positioned in this discipline. Dealing with financial models is our daily business. We believe that we can provide good support to project developers and investors with our specific industry experience and financing tools", said Bernhard Hofmann, Senior Associate at Capcora.

In addition to its supporting activities in sales and financing transactions as a transaction manager, Capcora also offers the often required service in the above-mentioned transaction processes to project developers and investors on a separate basis.

The service component of financial modelling includes the creation of integrated financial models for renewable energy projects or corporate finance transactions.

The financial model used in the onshore wind sector calculates the profitability of projects on a monthly basis, taking into account the wind distribution that is to be applied differently over the calendar year and depending on the wind region. Moreover, it evaluates key figures relevant for financing, determines the internal rate of return on the basis of various scenarios and enables different sensitivity analyses.

In addition to the provision of the financial model, which can be tailored to the needs of the user (customizing), Capcora also offers as further service a quick check of data room content, identification of optimization potentials and transfer of the details into the financial model. The aim is to provide the customer with a profound basis for sales or financing negotiations.

Individual features such as calculation of mezzanine financing models can also be integrated into the Capcora financial model or into existing excel-based financial models.
