Financial forecast

The Project appraisal is based on a business plan covering a 10-year

 

The business plan assumes gradual repayment of the junior debt with

the available free cash flows prior to any dividend payments.

Remaining free cash after the loan repayment is distributed as

dividends to the equity owners.

It is noted that a more leveraged financing structure and/or relaxed

debt repayment schedule might change (and improve) the equity

return to the shareholders.

Interest of 8.5% is assumed on the debt balance outstanding.

Under the base case, the project requires a total of c. EUR 6.8m debt

financing and c. EUR 1.8m equity financing. The financing structure

and its evolution is indicated in the charts to the right.
