Conventional finance usually includes loans based on the results of the company’s current business activities. When making a decision, lenders take into account the impact of planned investment projects on this activity. In Nuclear Energy Plant conventional finance, the borrower displays the investment project on the balance sheet and is fully responsible to the lender with all assets.
The cost of borrowed funds depends on the financing period, as well as on the condition of the borrowing company and loan security.

Corporate finance allows flexible use of borrowed funds with minor restrictions on the company’s activities. In the case of long-term financing, banks use additional contractual clauses that allow controlling credit risk and monitoring the borrower’s activities.
