21 Live BP Chemicals case SCB offers BPO to replace confirmed L/Cs Company profile 2010 Revenues of USD 14 billion Revenue created for approx. 50% in Asia Trade account receivables of EUR 1.4 billion (consolidated receivables only) More than 600 clients worldwide Challenges About 50% of exposure on secured terms Competitive commodities market requires a secure and cheaper alternative to L/Cs High processing and confirming costs (0,8% of transaction value) LCs process limits commercial possibilities and weakens compliance under certain conditions Key benefits Get paid on time and avoid judicial proceedings Reduce complexity removal of paper trail Limit to relevant trade information only Reduce cost by removing vetting activities and presentation assistance Improve customer offer by allowing for flexible options Improve speed of handling discrepancies Reduce the risk of discrepancies Reduce need for confirmation cost by being able to tap larger pools. Free up banking lines. Easy to exercise tool for liquidity Easier access to banks to secure transactions Possibility to spread the risk with multiple obligors Avoid unnecessary paper flows Gains expected greater than $1m worldwide but most of the upside lies in more marginal income 21
