Eagle Global Advisors

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Advise on high-speed passenger rail investment

 

BACKGROUND

Strategic Rail Finance was recommended by the project developers for providing due diligence support to the principal of Eagle Global Advisors, a private equity firm, who was evaluating a potential investment in this innovative high speed passenger rail and land development project.

 

SRF APPROACH

SRF determined the exact amount and focus of an appropriate due diligence evaluation to augment the client’s own capable transaction analysis. During this one-month engagement SRF assessed the project status, including the local, state, and federal landscape for support or opposition, and the likelihood of public sector funding assistance. We completed a review of the project’s investment grade ridership study incorporating input from our team of national experts in passenger rail transportation.

 

RESULTS

  • Completed a thorough analysis in a short time at minimal cost to the client
  • Applied our successful freight transportation approach to the passenger transport field
  • Client proceeded with their investment, better informed by our indepth report
