Finance And Economic Analysis
Dieloiche is home to one of the country’s leading economic and financial consulting practices, helping clients understand today’s economic, financial and regulatory opportunities and challenges.
We provide evidence-based critical insight and analysis on a range of business and public policy issues, supporting the public and private sector, regulators, non-profit companies and international agencies with their strategic decision-making.
With our connected South African and global network of expert and experienced finance and economic analysis professionals, we tailor analysis to specific infrastructure assets, organisational performance, local economic benefits and regional and national government initiatives.
Asking and answering the right questions
We help clients ask tough questions:
- Does a project align with public policy goals?
- Does it deliver meaningful social and economic benefits?
- Is the project financially and commercially feasible?
- Will it be affordable in the long term?
- Can we make it resilient to future policy and market shifts?
- What’s the best commercial delivery structure or procurement model?
Dieloiche supports clients by developing compelling business cases in order to make infrastructure investment that is far-sighted, viable and backed by detailed financial and economic analysis. On larger-scale projects and programmes, our finance and economics teams can research and evaluate the wider economic value of a proposition and assess its viability within existing and future regulatory and policy frameworks. We support our private and public-sector clients to determine whether policy, regulation and business models are fit for purpose in a dynamic, complex setting subject to a world of high-tech change.
STRATEGY AND ECONOMICS
Our market knowledge and deep understanding of evolving regulatory issues means we can help clients to craft the right strategies. We draw on extensive market and policy know-how from our sector experts and specialists to deliver joined-up, evidence-based advice to our clients.
We define viable and compelling investment cases, establishing financial feasibility given local opportunities and constraints. We can structure the financial elements of the project at hand helping to raise capital and secure debt as well as building robust financial models to analyse the underlying potential value of the projects.
FINANCIAL AND STRATEGIC PLANNING
Dieloiche can evaluate the overall technical and economic viability of nearly any project. For new resources and distribution systems, we evaluate capital and O&M cost estimates, operating characteristics and assess the availability and price of fuels and electric transmission capacity. We also assess environmental impacts and regulatory constraints to development. Finally, we assess alternative ownership structures and provide full pro-forma financial statement projections of long-term plant economic performance.
