Reasons to Strategize Partnerships

Capital intensity: Projects can be too big for a single company to finance on its own, both in terms of access to funding and cost exposure in the event of overrun.

Risk mitigation Single companies may not wish to assume full exposure to a speculative investment or invest into a new region or territory.

Access to technology Owners of proprietary technology may restrict or limit access to projects where they are invited to participate within a JV-style agreement. Similarly, project developers may seek to partner with technology owners where project success (and potentially competitive advantage) is predicated on access to technology or expertise.

Access to resources The project developer may need the help of a JV participant with the capital or skills to develop the resources to its maximum potential.

Supply chain optimization Supply chains can be optimized across disparate geographies by pooling participants' assets. For example, distribution costs can be reduced dramatically if participants with similar manufacturing requirements contract manufacture for one another in geographically dispersed locations.

Political sensitivity JVs, as opposed to acquisitions or takeovers, are sometimes more palatable to governments, labour groups and communities.

Market positioning and scale Pooling the assets of participants or leveraging collective political in influence allows a JV to develop a market-leading position in a particular geography, thereby providing advantages that no participant could attain working alone. Similarly, where a company wishes to de-risk a project or its portfolio, a JV may be used to reduce exposure and the on-going investment required, without having to consider full exit/divestment.

Regulatory requirements Some countries require foreign companies to work with local entities to participate in their markets.



Our pursuit to leave the world a better place than how we found it. To achieve sustainable success we act in the long-term interests of our shareholders, partners and society. Fundamental to meeting this goal is our focus on compliance and ethical integrity, environmental protection, on-the-job innovation and community relations. Together we are identifying and developing new opportunities to help improve our company-wide environmental performance.
