01:00:00
Customer is king

How the financial model has evolved from 100% equity to a hybrid model of debt and equity
• We are in an evolving industry
• Customers are relying increasingly on the spot market – less need for long-term contracts
• Finding out what is the right model for a low-cost commodity market
• Factors:
– Getting access to low-cost gas
– Low-cost liquefaction
– Cost of financing
• Customers back leveraging on their end
• Sovereign wealth funds / state owned enterprises
• Giving customers the choice on financing

01:07:33
Benefits of new model

• Convenience of syndicating to the larger group
• Offsets the incremental cost of servicing the debt
• We have put debt in the structure, but providing the LNG ‘at cost’ to customer

01:11:35
What do the economics look like

What do the economics look like when you have stressed that scenario with regards to the returns to the builder of the project and the customer. It becomes very difficult when you have to pay debt holders, preferred holders and equity holders – what does that look like?
• We are proposing a different model
• A few key variables:
– How much is the cost of the project
– Assets
– Debt & equity

01:16:03
Banks finance two things…

Key criteria used by banks to evaluate credit capacity
• More innovation needed in industry
• Banks finance two things:
– Assets
– Cash flow
• Can we have more equity financed by the customers themselves

… be continued.
