10 Global market potential: Receivables management US$ 1.3 Trillion Payables factoring US$ 100 Billion Asset-based lending US$ 340 Billion

11 As much as 5% of the COGS can be attributed to financing! - per Bob Dyckman, Wells Fargo Bank, 2009

12 Risk management as per Mitsui & Co.: A lack of information relating to country risk or the creditworthiness of business partners can be an impediment to doing business. We undertake pre-assessment of business risks, devise methods for managing or mitigating risks we have identified, and based on this provide customers with tailored solutions. We have a particularly important role to play in determining and managing the creditworthiness of business partners, so that our customers can conduct their business with financial peace of mind.

13 Globalization Provenance of data and information Increased competition Security and flexibility of financial instruments Supply chain leverage Financial constraints

24 A bank s WACC is generally much lower than any other company in a supply chain SCF opportunities are facilitated by banks and non-bank financial institutions The WACC for an SME can be substantially reduced within an SCF solution The cost of capital is affected by the volatility factor in an industry

25 Industry Auto parts 1.93 Bank 0.89 Beverage 1.28 Electronics 4.37 Office supplies/equipment 1.87 Packaging and container 1.28 Retail store 1.99 Semi conductor 6.35 Wireless networking 5.90 Volatility Factor security s price: 1 = follows market >1 = more volatile <1 = less volatile

26 C2C = Days of inventory on hand + Days of receivables - Days Payables Outstanding C2C = ( ) - 52 = 61 days

27 Industry Electronic and electrical Beverages Food producers Household goods Leisure goods Personal goods General retailers

28 Without an SCF solution With an SCF solution 2003 $11.60 $ $12.71 $ $20.65 $10.09

31 The average DSO = 30 days

32 61% of late payments are due to compliance or administrative problems such as incorrect invoices or receiving the invoice too late to process payment on established credit terms (Source: CRF - Credit Research Foundation)

33 DIH = Average inventory COGS x 365 (500,000 4,500,000) x 365 = 40.6 days

34 Industry Electronic and electrical Beverages Food producers Household goods Leisure goods Personal goods General retailers

35 Inefficient processing of incoming stock Inefficient materials handling processes PO delays Transit time Poor demand forecasting Weak inventory management practices Push vs pull techniques No postponement strategy Poor capacity planning Poor vendor performance
