1. Introduction

In order to cover financially its development programs, the Sonelgaz Group, in search of financial resources, as a consolidated entity, to enable it to ensure the development of its infrastructure has initiated a major capital raising on the banking and financial market in accordance with national regulations

Moreover, as a public company involved heavily in the development area, the Sonelgaz Group, has set a goal to be a major player in the national banking and financial market. With this in mind, the Group has used various mode of financing  regarded as a lever for development.

To do this, the Group Sonelgaz studied the different funding opportunities and has achieved the establishment of conventional funding arranged locally in the short,medium and long term as well as the use of the bond.

The Group, since 2006, also pledged a new funding formula that is the finance project for new investments in electricity production in partnership, through  HadjretEnnous projects « SKH » wilaya de CherchellKoudietEddraouch "SKD" wilayad’ElTarf and Terga"SKT" in the wilaya of Ain ​​Temouchent

The Group Sonelgaz, and as part of the financial coverage of its investments, characterized by the mobilization of funds for development of its activities (investment capital) on one hand, and for  rural electrification programs of public gas distribution on the other hand, uses the following resources:

  • Bank loans

  • State grants (in respect of rural electrification programs and public gas distribution)

  • Customer participation (as regards the rural electrification programs and public gas distribution)

  • Self-financing

    The legal and regulatory framework, requires the Sonelgaz Group to raise funds on  the Algerian banking market, and this has been since 2006.

    Indeed, the Algerian banking and financial market is considered advantageous for the development and the financial balance of Sonelgaz Group. Conditions that are offered are financial levers of growth for the Group:

  • The excess liquidity found at the Algerian public banks facilitates the fund raising for the Group (level, time)

  • The stability of interest rates offered by the Algerian financial market and discount for  electricity generation activities , transmission and distribution of electricity and gas and, unlike loans raised from banks offering external variable rates, averaged 5.87%

  • The use of local currency (against Value or value) in transactions exempt the Group Sonelgaz to be exposed to currency risk. The Sonelgaz group had to undergo  between 2000 and 2006, an exchange difference arising on nearby 4.5 billion dinars

    It should be noted however, that arbitration in the use of resources, particularly for infrastructure projects has resulted in the deferral of some investment programs.

3.3. The Finance project

The Project Finance is a financing method based on the ability of a project to generate sufficient revenue to:

  • Cover the operating costs of the project

  • Allow the reimbursement of loans raised

  • Ensure the return on equity of investors

    It is mainly characterized by :

  • The need to create an independent legal entity, dedicated Project Company

  • The provision by shareholders and lenders of necessary funds  to accomplish the project.

  • The assurance of a continued production from the exploitation and throughout the life of the project

  • Allocation of revenues to operating costs, lenders and shareholders, without discretion for reinvestment

  • The limited involvement to shareholders
