Due Diligence, Market Study and Development of a 10-year Business Plan for a Private Distribution Company - NigeriaDue Diligence, Market Study and Development of a 10-year Business Plan for a Private Distribution Company - Nigeria
As part of the reform of the power sector in Nigeria, the de-monopolization and subsequent privatization of the National Electric Power Authority was undertaken and since then private power investments throughout the country are being encouraged. The potential Investment in the area was an answer to the call for private investment amidst the looming power crisis. NCL was contracted to undertake a full due diligence of a distribution company in the South Eastern region of Nigeria (150,000 potential customers). The due diligence was performed to inform potential investors into the viability of the overall project (proprietary gas pipeline, power plant and distribution concession) including the assessment of potential risks associated with the prospective purchase. After the results from the full due diligence and capital and operational expenditure forecasts were presented to potential investors successfully, NCL was again contracted to assess the viability of selling power to the distribution franchise which included a comprehensive process of customer profiling. Shortly after, NCL was also contracted to develop a 10-year business plan for the distribution company.
