English translation:converting to money
Explanation:
'Capitalisation' smacks of Spanglish to me, yet the context is not that clear. I think the person interested in the 'participación' is offering to 'buy' the other co's debts - so that co. ends up having its money quicker. In other words, it converts the 'receivables' into ready cash (capital) for the other paty, who would normally have to wait - months? Capital can have in fact many meanings.

I suggest:

X is analysing the (possible) advantages of acquiring a significant share in the project -

1.via purchase of the receivables resulting from
2.via payment of an amount equivalent to the receivables resulting from

(construction?) work (works?) carried out...


Don't take this as gospel, as I can't be sure....good luck.
