Commercialization of Revenue Guarantee Options in Real Toll Highway PPP Projects: Prospects and Challenges

Interest in Public-Private Partnership (PPP) for highway projects continues despite the recent economic troubles. In the current environment, however, their success is even more dependent upon understanding and managing the risks inherent in these projects, with revenue risk being a crucial one. This paper investigates whether revenue guarantee option can become a more viable technique in real toll projects to supplement existing risk management practices for certain projects¡¯ needs. Previous research has explored revenue guarantee options as a means to assess and mitigate revenue risk. This paper advances this concept, and studies the potential of commercializing such an option. Specifically, the paper explores option types and introduces a practical implementation framework. In addition, it investigates the challenges of commercialization and suggests how to evaluate implementation feasibility in future work.
