Investment and Transaction Advisory Services

The operation of national airports, airlines and air traffic services were once functions of government.  For some decades it has become clear that government financing of such capital-intensive service enterprises is not a good use of public money, and that private sector finance and management methods tend to provide improved service delivery outcomes.

Drawing on its expert knowledge in the sector Ambidji  is a specialist practitioner in the management and transition of aviation enterprises from government ownership and operation to operation under private sector principles.

Ambidji provides services to both governments (sell side) and private sector (buy side) parties in such processes.

On the sell side, Ambidji is experienced in the scoping and design of frameworks for securing private sector investment, optimising the transaction value of assets and managing the process of securing investment.  Ambidji also supports government policy and regulatory bodies in the establishing of appropriate enabling environments for private sector investment in aviation infrastructure and services.

On the buy side, Ambidji has a track record in bid strategy development and management,
asset appraisal and valuation, as well as planning the development of the enterprise after private sector investment.  Ambidji is able to risk share with investors and can also act as the management contractor post-transaction.  The firm has experience in a variety of private sector financing structures from public private partnerships through to full privatization.

Ambidji’s clients include national governments, international development finance institutions, investment banks and fund managers, as well as a range of private sector investors.  Ambidji works equally well in developing economies as with OECD member countries.
