SeyitÖmer for Sale, last minute hints for investors
Long awaited Public Auction will take place on 28 Dec 2012 Friday afternoon, at 1500 hours. We would like to remind you the last minute recommendations on the pricing and risk appetites of participants, herein below.
Investor risk appetite is too high in Seyitomer 600 MWe Thermal power plant privatization, final price may exceed 1b$ on Friday.
Seyitomer 600 MWe thermal power plant sales in privatization will be an excellent application for John Nash's Game Theory. Put a ceiling to your financial capacity and do not exceed that treshold.
Seyitomer 600 MWe Tpp price is first estimated to be between 500-700 million $, however now more than 1b$ considered in market due to high participation. That figure may reach higher but at that time becomes unrealistic/ unreasonable/ difficult to finance.
Ebitda in SeyitÖmer is not so good under upfront estimations at this time, however project is promising to be twice after privatization, that is why investor risk appetite is high.
Investor should consider additional expenses for new ESP to exceed 10mEuros cost, and new FGD to exceed 20mEuros, plus I&C and other equipment renewals for each of total four units in rehab within next 5 years until year 2018. Total rehab cost is estimated to be approx. 200m US Dollars.
Investors should take calculated risks and are not to be blindfolded gamblers in Seyitomer

Aggressive risk appetite of local groups are very different than reputable global energy players.
