  • Product Description

    In October 1997, Marc Fornacciari, Vice President, Europe for the International Water Division of Suez-Lyonnaise des Eaux, received a letter from the Mayor of Maribor, Slovenia, breaking off negotiations for a concession agreement for a wastewater treatment plant. Suez had earlier refused the City's demand that the company fully guarantee the financial commitments of Aquasystems, the local subsidiary to be established by the investors, on the grounds that it would violate the very basic concept of non-recourse project finance. As a result, the Mayor announced that he would negotiate with the second-ranked bidder instead.
