for investors / buyers
Market prices are anything but deterministic. They are impossible to forecast. Valuing your project using deterministic scenarios does not take into account the stochastic character of market prices. And you are missing the probabilistic view regarding what is likely to happen with project returns.
for investors / buyers
Your hedging solution has an impact on the valuation model. And valuation model should be used to optimize your hedging structure. Regarding leverage – more debt you take, higher the equity returns – but also higher the likelihood of default. Valuation, hedging and capital structure are highly interconnected. We offer a unique valuation centric view – we merge valuation with hedging and capital structure optimization.
for project developers
How to decide whether to hedge 100% of production? Is 75% not enough? The off-take agreement quotes are always lower than expected market price. This means larger the hedge, lower the returns. If you can take some merchant risk, your returns will improve. However, you cannot have too large unhedged positions – that could be very dangerous – your project could default in case of low market prices.
for investors / buyers
The capital structure of the project (how much equity and how much debt) should be optimized taking into account stochastic character of market prices. You can boost returns by leveraging the project and / or by keeping part of the production unhedged. However, troubles begin when electricity prices drop – you still need to cover debt service otherwise your project defaults.
for developers / sellers
There are many good renewable energy projects. However there are fewer projects that have well prepared transactional documentation including financial model and investment memorandum. However, such documents are expected by financial investors. If your project is properly structured and documented, you are much more likely to sell it. Let us help you with the sell-side stuff.
Google, Facebook, and Uber are just three examples of innovative customer businesses that have created new digital industries. We are at the forefront of bringing this innovation and digitization to the world of renewable energy investments.
Today, there are still middlemen who extract significant value from projects. We intend to eliminate this by bringing transparency and by minimizing information asymmetry to make it easy to buy or sell renewable energy projects.
With efficient markets, more transparency, and a digitalized investment process that includes cost-efficient transactional services, the result is that a lower cost of capital is achieved. This lower cost of capital means more positive investment decisions and more renewable energy.
Blue Yellow provides opportunities for local renewable energy project developers to access capital and expertize globally. Local service providers can get contracted by international renewable energy investors, grow their business and enter new geos.
