This instruction contains explanations and tips for completing the form that CORAL is using in order to gather information on investment projects that require a partnership with a foreign investor. CORAL can make the information you provide us with available to the foreign investor in the following ways:
- ➤ Through the accessible database of investment projects on the CORAL website;
- ➤ Through the general and sector promotional activities undertaken by CORAL or other promotional institutions in order to promote the region countries’ investment potential;
- ➤ By providing information directly to the potential foreign investors or their intermediaries as an answer to the specific inquiries on the investment opportunities in the Southeast Europe.
Prior to completing the form, one should examine the following key aspects of the investment project:
To what extent is the project commercially and financially attractive and feasible for potential foreign investors? If a project does not meet these basic criteria, it is less likely that a foreign investor would invest in such a project.
What are the forms of cooperation you want to achieve with a foreign investor? Regardless of how attractive the project itself is, a foreign investor will want to keep some control over their investments and may require you to relinquish some control over existing business or activities. If this is not possible, you have to carefully consider what kind of mutually acceptable cooperation you could propose to a potential foreign investor.
What is the available level of flexibility in defining the investment project? Very few potential foreign investors will be looking to invest exactly in the originally proposed project. Even if the project itself is attractive, foreign investors will want to make certain alterations to suit their business model.
How prepared are you to provide additional information about the project to potential foreign investors? If a potential investor shows interest in your investment project, he will expect you to be able to provide the necessary additional information about the project itself and about your business. This applies to feasibility studies, financial analyses of the proposed project, financial accounts and business documentation. If this information is not available, you should take all necessary actions to be able to present the requested information to potential investors promptly.
It is important that you try to complete the form entirely and provide all the required information accurately and precisely in each section. Only if we have complete information about the project, it is more likely that the investor will assess your project as an attractive and well-designed opportunity. CORAL will assess the content and status of project implementation and promote the project to potential foreign investors.
