Delivering a valuable solution…
A Hong Kong pharmaceutical trading house purchases medicines from a number of pharmaceutical manufacturers in China and Europe. It also exports to many retail companies in South East Asia and distributes in Hong Kong. The finance department needs to review and monitor 500 companies to avoid possible losses due to non-delivery of goods by sellers and non-payment of buyers.
Coface provides the trading company with summarised and straightforward information on each of its suppliers and buyers, prepared by Coface’s experts in the form of reports that are reviewed every year.
On the strength of the information in the reports, the company decides to scale back its contract with three suppliers. According to Coface reports, the equity capital of the suppliers would have made them difficult to implement the capital expenditure needed to upgrade an existing medicine required by the new international standard.
The company also stops the 60-day credit terms of 8 retail buyers in one month according to the advice of the credit recommendation in the reports which are provided by professional credit analysts. 5 out of the 8 buyers go bankrupt two months later and the company does not suffer from any loss of payment default due to the early action of credit review.
