Investments in the energy sector often require large amounts of capital to support new and expensive technologies. Customized financial solutions are critical to bringing efficient technologies to market.
Role of finance
Whether renewables, conventional power or oil & gas, most energy projects are large-scale and require substantial amounts of capital. These funds must be secured before the various phases of the project can go ahead. From planning to purchasing and installing equipment to training staff for operations and maintenance – investors are needed every step of the way.
Financing is a critical component. It has been instrumental for us to find the money to build offshore wind farms.
Siemens offers investment solutions ranging from advisory services to debt and equity capital and equipment and technology finance options to help our clients in the energy and natural resource markets address tomorrow’s energy needs today. With a global network of energy finance professionals, the company provides capital and expertise that is backed by more than 160 years of Siemens’ industry innovation, financial strength and diligent risk management, bundled in Siemens Financial Services (SFS).
More than ever, organizations require financial partners that can develop strategic solutions to meet today’s evolving market needs. Siemens is positioned to adjust to a constantly shifting market environment where capital demands are unpredictable. The company supports projects across a wide variety of industries, covering the full scope of a diverse and flexible financing portfolio. When customers purchase Siemens equipment or services, they may be unaware of the diverse financing options Siemens has to offer.
SFS exercises a unique flexibility to invest debt, mezzanine or equity financing and seamlessly shift from debt to equity on the basis of fluctuating project requirements. As the needs of customers shift, SFS continues to tailor its financial solutions to more readily meet today’s market environment. It will continue to demonstrate flexibility based on the capital needs of customers.
The spectrum of Siemens debt solutions ranges from senior secured corporate loans and structured investment financing (like leases and loans) to infrastructure and project financing. In addition, its portfolio includes acquisition and growth financing, typically as syndicated loans.
SFS supports private equity and corporate clients’ needs and strategic goals through senior secured loans that are tailored to all business cycles. It has the strength to structure, underwrite and hold significant positions. SFS offers both floating and fixed rate options, and is capable of a broad range of transaction sizes. SFS also tailors junior capital financing directly for clients, offering a broad suite of integrated financial solutions – including the ability to provide secured first and second lien financing, as well as mezzanine and equity capital.
Through its equity financing, SFS enables projects that promise an appropriate return for Siemens and its coinvestors in terms of the project’s risk profile. Project risk profiles are determined by market risks and project specifics, such as construction and operating risks.
SFS typically reserves equity capital to focus on projects that directly utilize Siemens equipment and services and generally takes a minority interest in a project, investing at financial close of project construction. SFS draws on its extensive track record in equity investment to originate, structure and execute successful investments in the energy markets with an emphasis on generating superior returns in conjunction with its coinvestors.
