Proximo submissions and deals of the year
Submissions for Proximo’s Deals of the Year 2022 now open!
Every year Proximo recognises the work of financial professionals and firms in the project, infrastructure, energy, and renewable finance sectors to close landmark financings.
Proximo has now opened submissions for the Proximo Deals of the Year 2022 Awards. If you know of a deal that deserves to be put in the spotlight as an innovative, benchmark transaction, then it's time to submit that deal information for an award.
After three successful editions of the Proximo awards, the categories of deals lie within the energy, infrastructure, and project finance markets.
The submission form shows you the information that Proximo requires to be able to assess a transaction's eligibility, outstanding features, and to allow the market to vote on its merits.
Deals may already be present on our data platform. If so, please check our entry for accuracy, and suggest any changes or additional roles on the deal, as well as let us know why that deal is exceptional, innovative, of influential.
Eligible transactions will be any financing for an energy, resources, renewables, or infrastructure project that has closed during 2022. Non-recourse, limited recourse and full recourse deals with interesting features or structures will all be considered. The categories we award in are not fixed, and will reflect levels of market activity, but you are welcome to suggest categories based on past awards winners. To qualify, a transaction must have closed (i.e., signed, met its conditions precedent and be ready to fund) within 2022.
When should I submit?
The deadline for submissions is 15 December 2022. If your deal is likely to close towards the end of the year, Proximo strongly recommends that you submit details of the transaction under embargo so that they can be reviewed for eligibility. Any embargo would be lifted at signing. Alternatively, you may request an extension to gather relevant information, but at the same time as requesting please provide the deal sector and region so that any relevant category can be left open. An extension may not be automatically granted.
Can I leave some fields blank?
There may be instances when you are unable to provide all of the required information, say because you or your client are unable or unwilling to disclose certain details. In general, the more detail we receive, the easier it is to decide on the merits of the transaction, and ideally, we should see any evidence you have for an assertion you make in your rationale for submission. At a minimum we would need to know the overall size of the transaction, the debt size and the names of all firms that worked on the deal but deals with minimal details will be at a disadvantage.
Prepare a submission with all the deal data using our form or any other that you may have done for other platforms
Our team will verify the submission and be in touch with any questions
Proximo's editorial team will consult with the market to identify the best transactions
Winners will be notified privately in February and March, with formal recognition at our awards celebration to follow
Submit your deals
The Deals of the Year awards submissions are open now, you can download the form here.
Submit your deals to [email protected] before 15 December 2022, to be considered for the award.
