De Marco, Alberto; Mangano, Giulio; Zou, Xin-Yu (2012). Factors influencing the equity share of build-operate-transfer projects. Built Environment Project and Asset Management, 2(1):70-85.

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to determine the fundamental factors influencing the equity share in build-operate-transfer (BOT) investments in relation to the project risk profile.Design/methodology/approach – The relationships between risk factors and equity participation into the capital structure of a BOT contract are examined using regression analysis of a dataset of toll road projects.Findings – Results suggest that the inflation rate, the size of the investment, the construction period, the solidity of the vehicle company, and the organizational structure of the project are significant variables of the equity portion of financing.Practical implications – The analysis may support project promoters by providing better understanding of the factors that might facilitate high debt leverages and by providing lending institutions with valuable information to integrate the method of determining the appropriate debt resources to be injected into a BOT project.Originality/value – The paper contributes towards growing the body of knowledge regarding the way public-private partnership initiatives are carried over and helps refine the capital structures of BOT projects.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
