  6. 6. EXIP Case Study – Flexal Springs Company secured contract with Indian based Aerospace manufacturer however, company concerned about their cash flow and getting paid on time Insurance companies unwilling to take risk and provide export credit insurance. A LOC arrangement was possible but far more expensive than export insurance cover. Nalin De Silva General Manager said that Flexal needed peace of mind that they would be paid within a reasonable time frame The EXIP policy gave the company an added degree of security 6
  7. 7. Contract Bond Support Scheme Where a participating bank issues a contract bond (or indemnifies another bank issuing the bond) for UK export contract For advance payment, progress payment and all other performance bonds we normally guarantee up to 80% of the bond Exporter and Bank complete application form and submit to UKEF along with: – Last 3 years accounts 7
  8. 8. Bond Support Case Study – Eduteq ltd Secured large multi million contract in Africa that required a performance bond however, there was insufficient security for their Bank to issue bond on their behalf. The bond could have been cash backed however, that would have tied up the company's working capital.

  9. 9. Export Working Capital Scheme We provide guarantees to banks to cover the credit risks associated with export working capital facilities in respect of specific export contracts.

  10. 10. Export Working Capital Case Study UKEF’s Export Working Capital Scheme meant museum display case maker Click Netherfield had enough working capital to sustain its contract and look for further work overseas The overseas contract was really good news for us. But the payment terms agreed with the client meant that we would have had difficulty maintaining a consistent cash flow over the period of the contract, which would have had an impact both on this new project and on our work elsewhere. Jim Stewart M.D ClickNetherfield 10
  11. 11. Letter of Credit Guarantees UKEF can provide 50-90% guarantee to a UK Bank on a confirmed letter of credit The confirmed letter of credit gives exporter a double guarantee, one from the Issuing Bank and a confirmed letter of credit from UK Confirming Bank.
