We work in close partnership with funders, investors, and, if required insurers, to ensure that we can provide our clients with competitive lending terms, backed, if necessary, by project guarantees. We also offer a wide range of value-added services and support financial close and the client's long-term growth.
Our current activities are focused on: Energy, Agriculture, Waste to Value (Oil, Hydrogen etc.) Biofuels, Waste to Energy, Solar, Wind and Infrastructure with a focus on climate-friendly and sustainable elements such as; Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) guidelines.
Our funders provide equity, recourse, non-recourse debt investment. We can also support technology innovators in getting their technology into commercial deployment by providing performance guarantees helping their clients (project developers) obtain funding.
In some cases, we may also assist in sourcing finance to cover the final stages of the technology through to commercial deployment.
Understanding your project.
The project developer provides information about themselves, their team, the prospective project and any supporting information. Based on the information provided, our team will, initially, take a high-level review of your project, including progress to date and forward projections. Based on this information, we will also require a virtual meeting with you to discuss the project.
Listed below is a snapshot of some of the information we require to get your project funded, depending on your project. It is vital that you provide all relevant information so we can help you get funding:
Resumes of Principals
Full details of EPC and Operation and Management Contractors, including List of Projects Completed
Full details and operational history of technology being deployed
Breakdown of Funds already invested in the project
Detailed Use of Funds
Comprehensive Exit Strategy
Counterparties to the Project, including the Power Purchase Agreement
Off Take Agreements / Letters of Interest / Contracts etc
Geological Reports (Wind, Solar)
Consultation and Preparation
Based on individual needs, we offer free informational consultation to gain an understanding of your individual situation and provide you with our services, after which and subject to acceptance, we guide and prepare the set of presentation documentation critical to a successful capital raise.
During this period, by matching criteria, we approach our funders/investors to ascertain their genuine interest in your project and then prepare the final documentation to present your project to them in an acceptable format. All supporting documentation and our review are held in our secure data room, on our server, and accessed by ourselves, you, and funders.
From the earliest opportunity during the due diligence review, we talk directly to selected funders and underwriters to obtain their interest in the project. Any potential areas of concern are addressed during this critical period, with a constant three-way discussion between you and us ensuring that all parties' interests are aligned.
Upon completing the review, and a clear agreement from the Funders to proceed, we will issue our Contract of Services which will list a scope of detailed work to be carried out. Our Contract of Services will be transparent in our fee structure and that of the Funder. This will include a commitment fee from you when the funder has issued a Letter Of Interest (LOI) or Decision In Principle (DIP).
Allied will then proceed to work with your team and the funders to prepare a presentation that will typically solicit a request for further detail in the form of a comprehensive business plan and associated financials.
Under our scope of work, we discuss terms on the transaction structure with you and the investors/funders to execute a term sheet and supporting documentation. We continue to interact with the investors/funders during this period to bring the project to a successful close as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Multiple parties might be required to make an offer depending on the size of your capital requirement. If this is the case and initial pricing and terms will likely vary between investors, we help draw out the best recommendation to receive multiple Term Sheets and optimum terms for your project.
Assuming terms are agreed upon with an acceptable structure, conditions and pricing with the preferred investor(s), Term Sheets will be signed, locking the parties into a limited period of exclusivity, covering the anticipated duration of the due diligence phase. During this period and depending on the extensive detail required by the investor's due diligence team, Allieds' extensive experience and knowledge gained through many previous successful transactions remain in support of reaching financial close.
