Financial Services

Financial Services

  • Financing Solutions
  • Construction and term loans
  • Equipment financing
  • Leasing opportunities
  • Project financing

When acting as an equipment supplier or an EPC contractor, Caterpillar can assist you with your budget requirements by working with lenders to structure on- and off-balance sheet solutions for your projects.

On-Balance Sheet Financing

We assemble a group of lenders, including Cat Financial, a financing division of the Caterpillar group, to underwrite long-term loans. Such loans can include direct loans arranged by commercial banks (construction loans, permanent facilities, etc.) with coverages for political and/or commercial risks to be granted by governmental agencies or private insurance, when required.

Off-Balance Sheet Financing

Caterpillar provides advice with regard to establishing a special purpose company (SPC) to act as a borrower of funds, build the power plant and own it during the operating years. Funds needed for the project’s construction are injected in the SPC as equity and senior debt.

Our clients’ obligations under this structure can be as simple as being limited to operating the plant and making fixed monthly payments during a long-term period needed to amortize the investment made by the SPC’s lenders to finance up to 100 percent of the project’s costs (debt + equity).
