This comprehensive approach is undertaken for financial institutions, owners, operators and governments seeking to identify and mitigate risk. K&M has advised clients to structure and/or achieve successful financial closure for infrastructure projects totaling more than $10 billion.

The ability to effectively evaluate a project is based on a combination of understanding, knowledge, and experience. It also comes from an ability to ask the right questions. K&M provides an extensive range of evaluation services to a variety of clients due to its depth of industry understanding, technical and financial knowledge and operational experience. K&M’s unique approach to conduct due diligence evaluation has most of the same characteristics as if it was proceeding with its own project.

Unlike traditional “consulting” firms, K&M’s officers,
managers and consultants have designed, built and operated utilities. They know what can happen when projects are not thoroughly assessed and risks are not mitigated. 

K&M deliberately integrates its technical, financial and managerial capabilities to be responsive to the objectives and problems of all levels of its client’s management. This integrated, balanced approach toward the identification of issues and prediction of future performance empower clients to make meaningful decisions with a high degree of confidence from a true business perspective.

By using its "3E" approach, K&M identifies, evaluates, quantifies and proposes actions to mitigate the risk inherent in a project:

• Scoping and prefeasibility
• Feasibility studies
• Financial structuring
• Contract reviews
• Technology evaluations
• Market and competitor analyses
• Merger and acquisition analyses
• Legal/Institutional/Regulatory assessments
• Capital and operating cost estimates
• Cost-benefit analyses
• Construction schedule and cost reviews
• Security package review
• Fatal flaw analyses
• Financial sensitivity assessment
