Brexit impact on Investabill ETR & Credebt Exchange®

The result of last week’s referendum in Britain was shocking. Like most other financial institutions, Credebt Exchange® had an action plan in place, but did not expect we would ever have to implement it. As you know, Investabill is a simple product that is based on traded invoices/ETR.

As with the Brexit referendum itself, there are strong arguments as to the impact of Brexit on the Originators, or sellers, of ETR. These Originators will already have been affected by the drop in the value of Sterling against the Euro. However, as Credebt Exchange® buys, sells and settles ETR ‘in currency’ on a spot basis, this has no effect on Investors.

Foreign exchange [Fx] is a complex financial area that should not be simplified in this article. Credebt Exchange® must adhere to accounting standards by reporting its Fx position and does so under what is called Translation Fx. This may impact the Exchange’s year-end trading profit as a ‘paper loss’ and should not be confused with a real or true loss.

For Investors, regardless of where the ETR debtor/obligor is located or the currency that the ETR is settled in, the 4-Tier Capital Protection remains unchanged. Moreover, Credebt Exchange® does not offer foreign exchange hedging or protection to its Members. This means that any real Fx loss (called Crystallised Fx), must be borne by the Originator. This may impact the Originator harshly in the coming months and this is the commercial reality of all Euro denominated suppliers that sell and settle in Sterling.

Specifically, if an Investor invests in Euro, regardless of the currency of any ETR they may own, they are traded and settled in Euro. This means that regardless of how severely ETR Originators are affected by Brexit, Investors remain immune. The same is true of Investors that invested in Sterling or US Dollar.

Brexit may bring new opportunities to Credebt Exchange® as Britain comes to terms with the commercial reality of its decision. A shrinking British credit market would create a vacuum that the Exchange may choose to help fill. Whilst Euro based Originators may require additional working capital from the Exchange as they seek out alternative markets away from Britain. Also, EU and British organisations may decide to relocate some or all of their operations across both jurisdictions and in doing so will again require increases in the investment/working capital that Credebt Exchange® offers.

Credebt Exchange® does not offer any opinion as to the Brexit outcome or indeed what lies ahead. It does however remain firmly committed to its continued support of all its Members and particularly to its Originators as they grapple with this unprecedented Brexit event.

Year-2 Success Continues

Credebt Exchange completed its second full year’s trading on Friday last, 2015-07-03 and continues to prosper. Continued, careful, prudent management of supply and demand enabled the Exchange to manage an orderly market whilst meeting both Originator and Investor expectations as published.

Credebt Exchange

Since its foundation in 2011, Credebt Exchange® has been purchasing invoices on a revolving basis from Originators that are members of the Exchange. These invoice, or Exchange Traded Receivables [ETR], are payable by the Originators’ customers, or Debtors.

Effective 16 January 2015, Credebt Exchange Limited, with company registration number IE501210, officially changed its name to Credebt Exchange Limited. Credebt Exchange will continue the Credebt Exchange business model and will add a new product that pays Originators’ suppliers, or Creditors, too. The improved business model of paying Creditor invoices and purchasing Debtor invoices, led to the creation of the word: Credebt.

This blended business model is called Convertibill™ and is designed to further enhance cash flow for the Credebt Exchange Originators whilst also reducing their overall cost of funds. This is achieved by enabling Originators to offer their suppliers ‘payment on demand’ for a nominal discount. The discount is then offset against the cost of selling their customer invoices.

Over the coming months, wherever the Credebt Exchange name appears, it will be replaced by Credebt Exchange. Both new and existing Credebt Exchange Originators will be invited to avail of the payment on demand service for their suppliers and to continue sell their customer invoices using the Convertibill™ product offering.

During 2015-Q1, the Credebt Exchange extended product offering for Investors will be marketed under the product name Investabill™. As a sophisticated financial marketplace that facilitates the sale and purchase of Loans or Bills as Exchange Traded Receivables [ETR] or Investabills™.

Year-1 Success

Credebt Exchange® completed its first full year’s trading today and has much to celebrate. Careful, prudent management of supply and demand enabled the Exchange to manage an orderly market whilst meeting both Originator and Investor expectations as published. From the outset, the management of Credebt Exchange® stuck to its principal aims of of ensuring Investor funds are protected at all times and that Investors’ yield is delivered. Coupled with this core objective, the Exchange also ensured that intelligent finance was delivered to Originators and finally, that the Exchange grew in line with expectations.

As can be seen from the 2014-Q2 Briefing, demand and supply continue to grow in parallel. Intermediaries demonstrated continued support for Credebt Exchange® with increased Investor funding combined with many Investors deciding to re-invest both their principal and yield for a second year.

Originators continue to seek out Credebt Exchange® as an alternative non-bank finance provider specifically because of its ease of use and swift execution service provision. During 2014-Q2 Originators from wide and diverse industry cross-sections joined the Exchange with particular interest from recruitment, services and export oriented businesses. During the Summer months, it is expected that Originators will increase by 15-20% with a total of 60% growth in new Originators expected before year-end.

All in all, Credebt Exchange® has clearly demonstrated its flexibility and capability and looks forward to strong expansion during its second year of trading.

Non-Bank Finance

Since mid-2013, more than €10.0m of working capital has been provided to the numerous Irish micro-medium sized businesses trading on Credebt Exchange®.  Instead of using traditional lenders, savvy business owners choose to sell their invoices on Credebt Exchange® because it is more convenient, straightforward and less costly.

Dealing with traditional lenders like banks, factoring or invoice discounting companies is both time consuming and costly. In addition, because the business owner is borrowing, there are endless requirements for documentation coupled with onerous liens and personal guarantees.  Regularly, due to the circumstances of the business owner, the personal guarantee is insufficient and funding is refused.  When all of these factors are combined with stringent lending criteria, the outlook for business borrowers continues to look bleak.

The decline in funding and overdraft facilities available from traditional lenders has resulted in several innovative newcomers.  These new non-bank finance providers are slowly changing the business landscape by meeting explicit, once-off funding requirements. Operating in niche sectors of the market, the importance of these new providers has largely been ignored by the establishment.

Some non-bank providers specialise in either short or long-term lending with others preferring to offer project or venture based lending.  Online platforms have also emerged that offer supply chain finance, ad-hoc invoice based lending and receivables discounting too.  Notwithstanding the importance of these new non-bank providers, a viable alternative to the bank overdraft or invoice discounting facility is still a primary requirement.

The overdraft or invoice discounting facility is an essential tool for most businesses. Where non-bank lending or ad-hoc trading in invoices may improve cash flow, it lacks certainty.  Business owners need absolute certainty on the availability of working capital to ensure continued operational success.  Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the micro-medium sized business sector.

Where these innovative non-bank finance providers can solve some liquidity issues, they do not offer, or attempt to replicate, the certainty provided by an overdraft facility.  Also, shrewd business owners will quickly identify that the fees and annual interest charges of 12-25% rule out the possibility of regular use.  In response to this, an alternative to the traditional overdraft or invoice discounting facility quietly entered the market last year.

The Credebt Exchange® non-bank finance replaces the overdraft seamlessly by providing intelligent finance with certainty.  As opposed to a lending model, the Exchange uses a selling model that dispenses with the liens and frustrations of the lending industry.  As a wholesale marketplace with both buyers and sellers, Credebt Exchange® is charged with ensuring liquidity and affordable funds availability.

Buyers on the Exchange are Investors with excess capital seeking a yield and business owners, as the Originators of invoices, are the sellers.  Credebt Exchange® negotiates and strikes deals on a daily basis by matching Investors’ buy to Originators’ sell orders.  To manage an orderly market, Originator sell offers are filled according to specific funding allocation dates that are published on the Credebt Exchange® website.  On each allocation date the Exchange agrees to provide the Originator’s total annual working capital requirement and thereby provides the funding certainty they need.

The working capital requirement of the Originator dictates the total value of invoices they must sell in any given year.  Unlike traditional lending models, the Originator is not required to sell their ‘whole book’ and nor do they provide any liens or personal guarantees.  The Originator simply selects the Debtors whose invoices they wish to sell and Credebt Exchange® buys them on behalf of Investors on the Exchange. As a percentage of turnover, funding costs tend to be 0.5% – 5.0% per annum.

With the Exchange projecting trade of €35.0m by year end, this is a compelling alternative to the overdraft or invoice discounting facility.  Any micro-medium sized business owner in need of working capital should certainly consider this new non-bank finance as an option.  Providing intelligent finance in today’s market without the need for liens or personal guarantees is a welcome and well-conceived alternative. Credebt Exchange® is quietly maintaining its orderly market whilst also having the potential to disrupt the traditional lending market beyond recognition.

4. Notice of Intent [NoI]

IMPORTANT:- Some links in this article will only be accessible to authorised Members that have logged into the Exchange Trade Centre

All Debtors that are submitted using the ‘Create new Debtor‘ menu item are subject to approval by the Credebt Exchange® Back Office. IMPORTANT NOTE:-Originators should allow 72-hours for every Debtor approval to occur.

At the same time, the Originator must issue a Notice of Intent [NoI] to each new Debtor created. The NoI is a courtesy letter to the Debtor to advise them that you will be selling invoices, payable by them, to Credebt Exchange®. 

The Sample NoI can be copied and modified (i.e. the text can be substantially changed) before being pasted onto the Originator’s own letterhead.  However the Originator chooses to modify the Sample NoI, the Notice of Assignment [NoA], that is shown as the last page of the NoI, should not be altered.

The Notice of Assignment [NoA] is a separate document and although it must be included with the NoI, it should not be confused with it. The NoI and NoA are two separate documents. Where the Originator is permitted to modify the NoI as explained in the previous paragraph, the NoA should only be amended to show the Originator’s name and the date that they became a Member of Credebt Exchange®. No other changes should occur on the NoA.


Viewing the Currency Accounts

Calculate Working Capital

If a company takes all of its short-term assets (e.g. cash in the bank, receivables invoices, stock, etc) and pays all its short-term liabilities (e.g. suppliers, staff, etc) the remaining balance is their working capital position.  If the working capital position is positive, it is more than likely that the company is adequately capitalised and is self sufficient.  If however, the working capital position is negative, then the company needs to make up the difference by borrowing money or using some other source of working capital.  To calculate the working capital of a business, simply subtract its Current Liabilities from its Current Assets.

Working Capital = Current AssetsCurrent Liabilities

Knowing the working capital of a business will help to avoid unnecessary financial strain on the company.  Companies with insufficient working capital will invariably delay payments to suppliers, fail to pay staff salaries, delay tax payments and may ultimately lead to business failure and/or closure.   A useful measurement of the financial health of a business is its working capital ratio.  In a financially stable business, the working capital ratio will be above 2.

Working Capital Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities

For example, a company with current assets of 100,000 and current liabilities of 40,000 has working capital of 60,000 and its working capital ratio is 2.5. Working capital ratios below 2 are an indication that there may be a potential financial problem.  A company with a working capital ratios below 2 needs to address the issue swiftly by borrowing money or using some other source of working capital.


Finding your Current Assets & Current Liabilities

Go to your accounts system and print your Balance Sheet, or ask your accountant for a recent Balance Sheet. Current Assets is a standard heading on most Balance Sheets. There may be a Current Liabilities heading and if not, there should be a heading: Creditors – amount falling due within one year and this is your Current Liabilities.

How to use risk to your advantage

As explained in the previous article “It’s all about Risk…” you’ll now understand that larger organisations get preferential treatment from banks.  That’s the status quo and isn’t likely to change any time soon.  So what can you do to improve the banks perception of your business, so that you achieve ‘next best’ status?

The answer is to make sure you present your business as the ‘next best’ lowest possible risk.  This means you have to remove all possible negative ‘what if’ scenarios, wherever you can. What if these top two customers cancel their business with you? What if your cost of supplies increases unexpectedly?  What if a senior member of staff leaves? What if demand in your market declines suddenly?  And so on…

The more you think about all the risks that undermines the integrity and viability of your business, then you’re thinking like a banker.  Banks don’t like risk.  If you have given sufficient thought to the removal or reaction to risk, then you’re making it easier for them to lend to you.

It’s all about Risk

Once you understand risk, then you’ll begin to understand banks and how banking works.  Banks, investors, shareholders, managers, financial markets, brokers and other investment/lending professionals all learn about risk.  That’s not to say they necessarily understand risk in all its guises, but they must understand the principal that high risk is bad risk.

Think of it like parenting. Does a responsible parent leave a young child with the wild teenager next door, or do they leave the child with a mature, responsible adult? If you were a bank, who would you rather lend money to: an established, well managed, large company or the young start-up business (notice how inverting this speaks volumes: ‘up-start’)?

As a bank manager, if you are paid the same salary for lending to large companies as you were for lending to the up-starts (sorry, start-up), but were only promoted when the loan was repaid, who would you lend too?

Unless you’re being obstinate, the answer’s simple: the established, well managed, large company is less risky than the young start-up.  So they get the money first (and in most cases, at much lower cost too). Only after the large corporates market is satisfied, will banks look to the micro-medium sized, more risky market.

Low risk, high volume lending is more efficient and ‘safer’ than almost every type of other riskier lending to the micro-medium sized business.  That’s a simple fact of banking and isn’t likely to change any time soon.  So don’t get angry with your bank, if you were in their shoes, you’d probably use the same principal: low risk
