4 Finnvera operations and the market players 4 Private financing always plays the primary role. Public financing supplements and acts as a catalyst for private financing. We have close co-operation with Finnish and international banks in export and domestic SME finance. We do not compete with commercial banks / investors or development finance institutions. We are expected to adhere to the principle of economic self-sustainability. We can only finance business that has the prerequisites for profitability. All risks are rated and our loans & guarantees are priced according to perceived risk. We conduct counterparty due diligence similarly as and in co-operation with private commercial banks: -> country, bank, corporate and project analysis

5 Services to SMEs seeking global growth 5 Export Finance Financing for Internationalisation Working capital facilities Investment financing in Finland

6 Financing for Internationalisation 6 Granted as direct loan to a Finnish SME or as guarantee to its bank Purpose is to promote the internationalisation of Finnish SMEs financing investments / working capital of a subsidiary abroad acquisition of ownership in a foreign company can not be used in financing exports SME employs fewer than 250 people, its annual turnover < 50 mio or balance sheet total < 43 mio ; ownership has to be considered (EU definition) In our due diligence attention is paid to i.a.; Creditworthiness of the Finnish SME Country risks and business environment of the target country Finnish interest (not exporting jobs out of Finland) Feasibility study and business plan for internationalisation

7 Financing for internationalisation 7 Finland Target Country Bank Securities Guarantee Credit Parent SME Oy Dividends or repayments Subsidiary Finnvera Equity or shareholder s loan Finnpartnership Finnfund Equity or debt

8 Finnvera as the Finnish Export Credit Agency 8 We issue export credit guarantees to Finnish exporters and to international banks when Finnish interest is present (Finnish exports) We cover credit risks in export transactions i.e. we provide cover against political and commercial risks (non-payment risk of the counterparty) and share the risks with other financiers Our export credit guarantees can relate to individual buyer credits or credit lines supplier credits (open account or bills of exchange) documentary credits (at sight, deferred payment or standy-by) pre-export financing to the Finnish exporter We act in close co-operation with other ECAs and financiers for example OECD, EU, Berne Union, Paris club We apply the international agreements related to official export credits (e.g. OECD Consensus, EU and WTO)
