Ikarus Capital offers a full range of advisory services in strategic and corporate finance, M&A, project finance, debt capital and equity capital raising. Our clients are developers raising debt and equity, asset owners divesting or re-financing projects, and investors seeking to buy assets in operation or under construction.
We are committed to the renewables and utilities industries across Europe and emerging markets. We have extensive experience in helping our clients divesting assets or portfolio of assets. For a typical sell-side process, our scope of services encompasses the following:
We also support our clients who are seeking to invest in renewable energy assets, either to enter this asset class, or to extend their portfolio. Target assets might be projects under development, assets under construction, or operating assets. Our scope typically includes the following:
Project finance is a key area in renewable energy finance, where Ikarus Capital has a deep expertise. We will determine the optimal financial structuring (equity, convertible loans, mezzanine, senior loans, etc.) for the project or the assets, and reach out to the most likely lenders to ensure a timely financial close. A typical scope of such mandate is the following:
For operating assets, there often is significant upside in optimizing the financial structure. Re-financing the existing debt structure is in many cases a very attractive option. The scope is very similar to raising new debt, with the addition of a careful analysis of the impact of unwinding the existing debt (break-up fees, swap agreements analysis, etc.).
We also help our clients with financial advisory services beyond specific transactions, e.g. financial modelling of renewable energy projects in new markets, fairness opinions, valuations, etc.
