16 Who is affected by currency market? Corporate, exporters, importers, governments, central & other banks, financial markets, individuals - travellers, students

17 How is exchange rate a financial risk? Mr. ABC is an exporter and has to receive USD 5 million as payment for his exported goods next month. If today USD-INR rate is 55.60, Mr. ABC is expecting to receive INR 27.8 Crs. (5*10^6*55.60 = 27.8 Cr). By the time of payment delivery, if USD-INR moves to 57.30, Mr. ABC will receive INR Cr. He will gain additional INR 0.85 Cr. In a situation, USD-INR changes to at the time of delivery, Mr. ABC will receive INR Cr. A loss of INR 1.05 Cr. In above situations, Mr. ABC will hugely gain or lose basis exchange rate movement in USD-INR, for which he has no control.

18 How is currency a risk more examples... Mr. XYZ imports goods. He is expecting delivery of his contract next month and has to pay USD 10 million at the time of goods delivered. If today USD-INR rate is 55.60, XYZ has to pay INR Cr. (10*10^6*55.60 = 55.6 Cr). By the time of payment, if USD-INR moves to 57.30, Mr. XYZ will have to pay INR Cr. He will have to pay additional INR 1.70 Cr. In a situation, USD-INR changes to at the time of delivery, Mr. XYZ will have to pay INR Cr. A gain of INR 2.10 Cr. In above situations, Mr. XYZ will gain or lose basis exchange rate movement in USD-INR, for which he has no control.

19 Some more situations - Anjali Jewellers is importing 100 KG of Gold, worth INR 30 Cr from US. Ruchi Soya has entered in a contract to export Soya Oil to US worth INR 20,000 Cr next year. Indian importer ABC partners has deposited USD 5 Million as refundable guarantee deposit to tie up with US Company for 5 Years. Same ABC partners is sourcing business from US every month worth INR 25 Cr every year. Indo-Call runs 1000-seat BPO in India and US. Receives $100 per day as servicing fee. What happens if the INR depreciates against USD - rate moves from $50 to &52 in a month

20 And the fx risks - Anjali Jewellers operating profit falls with Rs 1.2 Cr every month. Ruchi Soya s net income rises by 800 Cr a year. ABC partners will receive INR 10 Million extra on conversion of his deposit. Same ABC partners profit for the year increases to 1Cr for the year. Indo-Call receives Rs 60 Lakh additional gain each month.

21 Problem - currency exposure risk solution - hedging

22 Problem - Firms involved in international transactions face a risk, an unknown gain/loss, on account of unanticipated changes in exchange rates. These transactions are quantified in terms of international exposure. Un-hedged exposures adversely affects P&L of companies and creates operational hitches like cash flow requirements etc.

23 We need to manage our fx exposure Payables Receivables Imports Exports Capital good imports Overseas borrowings - FCCBs, ECBs Foreign deposits Engineering offshore contracts Capital flows - FDI, FI Service export contracts

24 Solution on fx risk - hedging Hedging is a position established in one market in an attempt to offset exposure in some opposite position in another market. The goal is to minimize one's exposure to unwanted risk. Hedging is thus taking of a position, either acquiring a cash flow or an asset or a contract(including a forward contract) that will rise(fall) in value to offset a fall(rise) in value of an existing position.

25 What is hedging overview & concept? Hedging is a position established in one market in an attempt to offset exposure in some opposite position in another market.

26 Keeping it simple - how to hedge? Forex receivable Short/Sell futures Forex payable Long/Buy futures

27 Cost of hedging & management of hedge Set price for transacting a foreign currency in the future Hedge forex exposure Cost to lock in this exchange rate - margin deposits - premium related to future rate for currency - brokerage fee to obtain contract - mark to market cash flow - net settlement cash flow
