Canada’s power and utilities companies are busy working on new initiatives and build-outs for the foreseeable future, including renewable energy projects as part of the global shift from fossil-based systems of production and consumption. The only way for all of these new projects to get developed is for businesses to secure billions of dollars in financing and then put that money to work.
As the industry evolves, so too does the way companies finance operations. Many are choosing to issue equity, tap debt markets, participate in private placements, engage in joint venture agreements and more. As well, changing legal and regulatory requirements, and a shift in the kinds of energy projects that financial institutions now want to support could impact the way businesses approach their financing needs.
Helping companies navigate Canada’s capital markets is something Osler’s Power & Utilities team has been doing for years. We work with clients to develop company-specific financing strategies that suit their individual needs. We’ve helped secure financing for major projects and have relationships with global financial companies and large institutional investors.
As the power and utilities landscape evolves, creating the right capital market strategy – and working with the top industry experts – will be critical to your success.
