Purpose and Context:

This is one of a suite of draft agreements, designed for a Government, to facilitate the part-privatization of its state-owned electricity generator (“X”), by way of a sale of a 51% interest in the shares of X to a private investor. This particular draft pro-forma agreement is the principal implementation agreement, setting out the terms of the Government’s support for the transaction and the main obligations of the private investor.

Main Features:

The draft agreement contains provisions for various forms of Government support, ranging from the issuance of visas for the SPV’s employees (clause 3.1.1), to the “Taxation Stability” arrangements (clause 3.1.6 and Schedule 3), to special allowances for the maintenance and repatriation of foreign currency accounts (clause 3.1.8).

The draft agreement also contains provisions dealing with changes to relevant government legislation (see clause 3.1.10 and the definition of “Change of Law” in Schedule 1).

In addition, there are mirrored ‘buy-out’ provisions in the event of certain defaults (clause 8.2), which cross-refer to the Shareholders Agreement, one of the other documents in the suite.
