This video from Altech Chemicals Ltd. explains why an acquisition agreement is important for project financing. Of course, this type of contract can also be beneficial for buyers. Taketake agreements allow buyers to acquire metal production at a specified price. This can be used as a hedge against future price changes if demand outweighs supply. The terms of a taketake contract also ensure that buyers receive the tonnes of the product they buy at a given time. Offtake agreements are essential for many mining companies, especially those that focus on critical and industrial metals. Here`s why. “[Is] an agreement to acquire part or a substantial portion of the production or product produced by a project.” In addition to providing a guaranteed market and a source of supply for its product, an acquisition agreement allows the manufacturer/seller to guarantee a minimum result for its investment.
Because taketake agreements often help secure funds for the creation or extension of a facility, the seller can negotiate a price that guarantees a minimum level of return on associated products and thus reduces the risk associated with the investment. Offtake agreements are carefully developed, long-term agreements between buyers and sellers, which are negotiated and concluded even before the thematic project is developed, take effect when the development of the project is completed and production is put online and continues for a long time, at least several years. These agreements help the project owner finance the project and, indeed, are most likely necessary, as the offtake agreements are a promise of future revenue and proof of the existence of a market for the product. The acquisition agreement plays an important role for the producer. While lenders can see that the company hired customers and customers before production began, they are more likely to allow an extension of a credit or credit. Thus, acquisition agreements facilitate the financing of the construction of a facility. Offtake agreements are usually a win-win document in which both the project company and the Offtaker enter into a fair agreement. While an offtake agreement is beneficial to both parties, it offers its greatest benefit even before the project is built, because it is a key document – if not the key project – that gives the project lender enough insurance to obtain credit authorization for the project. Taketake agreements are generally used to help the sales company acquire financing for future construction, expansion or new equipment projects by promising future revenues and demonstrating existing demand for goods. For example, a power plant would have a contract to purchase electricity. However, a pipeline manufacturer would have a contract to transport gas or oil. The offtake agreements also contain standard clauses that include recourse – including penalties – each party has in case of violation of one or more clauses.
“Project funding was largely approved by the agreement;” A significant portion of future production will be sold in the future for many years to come; Guaranteed income under the agreement for a long period of time; The project company will make a predictable profit in the future for many years to come.
