Client benefit

Prestiva's multi-dimensional due diligence service delivers reliable results through analytical depth and operational know-how. A solid analytical approach provides the basis for developing a comprehensive market view, while operational know-how focuses Prestiva's analysis on sources of financial concern that may not be discranible in the financial data alone. Prestiva is equipped to deliver robust insight rooted in sound analytics that stretch across the areas of asset valuation, market modeling, transmission constraint analysis, fuel supply and environmental control optimization and commodity risk analysis.
Prestiva delivers value by combining an unrelenting focus on client concerns with depth and breadth of sector expertise, supported by a comprehensive market modeling capability.
Generation asset valuation

Prestiva's proprietary approach to generation asset valuation combines extensive market modeling capabilities with a comprehensive due diligence process to develop meaningful cash flow and valuation estimates for a given generating asset or portfolio.
At the start of a due diligence initiative, Prestiva develops a high-level value assessment based purely on in-house asset information. Over the course of a due diligence effort, Prestiva incorporates company-specific information such as plant specifications, historical operating performance and detailed contractual requirements to refine the valuation and tighten the value range. Prestiva then delivers a firm plant by plant valuation supported by relevant sensitivity analyses that may address fuel price movements, overbuild extensions and/or environmental regulatory shifts.
Clients benefit from improved asset decision-making and gain greater comfort and confidence in knowing that all value drivers have been comprehensively addressed.
Water, coal, oil and gas asset valuation

Prestiva assists energy clients with the valuation of water, coal, oil, midstream gas and gas liquids assets and operations, including long-term physical supply and marketing opportunities, regional resource availability, and competitive threats and opportunities.
Prestiva's due diligence specialists have extensive expertise and industry experience across the entire value chain including exploration and production, gathering and processing, LNG operations, bulk marketing, transmission and storage, distribution and retail marketing.
Industry insight and a rigorous financial modeling approach allow Prestiva to encapsulate the unique issues that influence the valuation of these types of businesses. By applying market modeling capability in tandem with commodity and regulatory expertise to develop inputs for proprietary analytical building blocks, Prestiva provides robust and insightful valuation. Benefits are realized through more informed decisions from any side of the negotiating table.
Market price forecasting and analysis

Recognized as the independent market leader in the development of commodity market price forecasts, Prestiva utilizes both commercial software and in-house proprietary analytical tools to perform market price forecasting and analysis.
Prestiva leverages extensive energy market modeling capabilities to forecast prices in a variety of circumstances, including assessment of new market rules, evaluation of stranded asset values, market power analyses, merger and acquisition analysis, least cost planning and market entry, among others.
Our in-depth experience with many of the commercially available modeling and forecasting tools includes Prosym, U-Plan, GE-Maps, Promod among others. We have also developed our own dispatch modeling tool, WEMSIM, which can be used as either a least-cost dispatch or sequential dispatch model with detailed treatment of transmission constraints.Prestiva has also developed a model for use in the European electricity markets that analyzes the flow between countries as determined by differentials in production costs and cross-border transmission capacities and tariffs. The model explicitly recognizes the linkage between European electricity markets and that prices in one country are influenced by market conditions in another.
Cash flow and collateral analysis

Providing advisory services to financial institutions and merchant energy companies in the areas of forward collateral requirements and cash flows associated with different trading and hedging scenarios is a substantial strength of the due diligence services Prestiva provides.
Within the industry, there is a growing emphasis on the magnitude and stability of cash flow. Stability requires hedging, yet hedging can tie up cash in the form of collateral support. Prestiva's application of a proprietary model assesses collateral needs under various portfolio management and hedging strategies allowing clients to understand the feasibility of hedge scenarios and the most efficient use of scarce collateral resources.
Incorporating assumptions on market price volatility, credit risk and collateral availability, Prestiva applies a variety of risk metrics to assess cash flow certainty and risk. Clients gain the benefit of increased awareness of the trade-offs associated with various risk and portfolio management strategies.
Trading book audit

Utilizing Prestiva's methodology related to trading book audits, clients gain understanding of the value of propositions, and clearly grasp how that value can change under different market scenarios. The assessment of the portfolio management practices related to a clients' trading and marketing business segments can include some or all of the front, middle and back office procedures.
Subject matter experts in Prestiva develop a high-level value assessment based purely on company reports and proprietary commodity price forecasts. Over the course of a due diligence effort, Prestiva then incorporates transaction detail and related portfolio risk drivers to refine the valuation and tighten the value range. At the conclusion of the process, Prestiva delivers a firm book valuation supported by relevant sensitivity analyses that may address forward price and volatility assumption changes.
Property tax appraisal

In the US, certified Prestiva staff conduct appraisals in compliance with the Financial Institutions Reform Recovery and Enforcement Act (FIRREA) established by Congress in response to the savings and loan debacle of the 1980s.
The typical appraisal process combines due diligence on the assets of interest with market modeling for projection of gross margin in the asset valuation process. Results are then prepared and packaged appropriately (eg as expert witness testimony for litigation/negotiation).
Clients benefit by way of thoroughly supported appraisals that may lower the associated tax basis and reduce tax payments, which can provide gains in the form of future cash savings.
