FEATURED PROJECTS

Introduction

In 2018, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine further stimulated local infrastructure investment by issuing concession tenders for the seaports of Olvia and Kherson. MTBS played a leading role in the consortium appointed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority (USPA) as sell-side advisor in the tender process. As part of the consortium, our responsibilities ranged from the execution of feasibility studies for the PPP transactions, to the preparation of the tender documentation and assisting our client in the tender process.

Outcomes

Having identified the key issues for the preparation of the PPP transactions, we conducted a thorough economic analysis of the seaports of Olvia and Kherson, including technical, environmental, and social aspects. Such an analysis enables us to determine the competitive position of the assets and allows us to identify the most appropriate investors for a successful transaction. Our work culminated in the preparation of a detailed transaction timeline, during which we assisted our client all the way through to the signing of the concession agreement in August & September 2020.

Our proprietary approach to PPP transactions provided our client with useful insights such as operational and financial feasibility, and value for money analyses.
