Problem 20.

1 Nikken Microsystems (A)

Assume Nikken Microsystems has sold Internet servers to Telecom Espaa for 700,000. Payment
is due in 3 months and will be made with a trade acceptance from Telecom Espaa Acceptance. The
acceptance fee is 1.0% per annum of the face amount of the note. This acceptance will be sold at a
4% per annum discount. What is the annualized percentage all-in-cost in euros of this method of

Problem 20.2 Nikken Microsystems (B)

Assume that Nikken Microsystems prefers to receive U.S. dollars rather than euros for the trade
transaction described in problem 2. It is considering two alternatives: 1) It can sell the acceptance for
euros at once and convert the euros immediately to U.S. dollars at the spot rate of exchange of \$1.00/;
or 2) It can hold the euro acceptance until maturity but at the start sell the expected euro proceeds
forward for dollars at the 3-month forward rate of \$1.02/.
a. What are the U.S. dollar net proceeds received at once from the discounted trade acceptance in option
1?
b. What are the U.S. dollar net proceeds received in 3 months in option 2?
c. What is the breakeven investment rate that would equalize the net U.S. dollar proceeds from both
options?

d. Which option should Nikken Microsystems choose?

If Nikken Microsystems' opportunity cost of capital is 8%, it should be indifferent financially
between the two options However, selling the acceptance at once, option 1, improves
Nikken's liquidity and removes the debt that otherwise would be financing the acceptance from
Nikken Microsystem's balance sheet.

Problem 20.3 Motoguzzie (A)

Motoguzzie exports large-engine motorcycles (greater than 700cc) to Australia and invoices its
customers in U.S. dollars. Sydney Wholesale Imports has purchased \$3,000,000 of merchandise
from Motoguzzie, with payment due in six months. The payment will be made with a bankers
acceptance issued by Charter Bank of Sydney at a fee of 1.75% per annum. Motoguzzie has a

Problem 20.5 Nakatomi Toyota

Nakatomi Toyota buys its cars from Toyota Motors-USA, and sells them to U.S. customers. One of
its customers is EcoHire, a car rental firm which buys cars from Nakatomi Toyota at a wholesale
price. Final payment is due to Nakatomi Toyota in 6 months. EcoHire has bought \$200,000 worth
of cars from Nakatomi, with a cash down payment of \$40,000 and the balance due in 6 months
without any interest charged as a sales incentive. Nakatomi Toyota will have the EcoHire receivable
accepted by Alliance Acceptance for a 2% fee, and then sell it at a 3% per annum discount to Wells
Fargo Bank.

Problem 20.6 Forfaiting at Umaru Oil (Nigeria)

Umaru Oil of Nigeria has purchased \$1,000,000 of oil drilling equipment from Gunslinger Drilling
of Houston, Texas. Umaru Oil must pay for this purchase over the next five years at a rate of
\$200,000 per year due on March 1 of each year.

Bank of Zurich, a Swiss forfaiter, has agreed to buy the 5 notes of \$200,000 each at a discount.
The discount rate would be approximately 8% per annum based on the expected 3-year LIBOR rate
plus 200 basis points, paid by Umaru Oil. Bank of Zurich also would charge Umaru Oil an
additional commitment fee of 2% per annum from the date of its commitment to finance until
receipt of the actual discounted notes issued in accordance with the financing contract. The
\$200,000 promissory notes will come due on March 1 in successive years.

The promissory notes issued by Umaru Oil will be endorsed by their bank, Lagos City Bank, for
a 1% fee and delivered to Gunslinger Drilling. At this point Gunslinger Drilling will endorse the
notes without recourse and discount them with the forfaiter, Bank of Zurich, receiving the full
\$200,000 principal amount. Bank of Zurich will sell the notes by re-discounting them to investors
in the international money market without recourse. At maturity the investors holding the notes will
present them for collection at Lagos City Bank. If Lagos City Bank defaults on payment, the
investors will collect on the notes from Bank of Zurich.
a. What is the annualized percentage all-in-cost to Umaru Oil of financing the first \$200,000 note
due March 1, 2011?
b. What might motivate Umaru Oil to use this relatively expensive alternative for financing?
Assumptions
Face amount of the note due March 1, 2011 issued by Umaru
3-year LIBOR rate, per annum
Basis point spread, per annum
Total discount rate, per annum
Bank of Zurich commitment fee, per annum
Lagos City Bank endorsement fee, per annum

What is the all-in-cost of forfaiting?

Face amount of note
Less Lagos City bank endorsement fee
Less Bank of Zurich commitment fee for one year
Less discount on note at LIBOR plus spread
Net proceeds

Annualized all-in-cost of factoring

( total interest and fee costs / face amount of note )
Umaru Oil would probably be motivated to use a forfaiter because its credit worth is too
low to qualify for more normal financing. Note that the 11% annual costs are paid by
Umaru Oil itself -- the importer, rather than by Gunslinger Drilling, the exporter.

Problem 20.7 Sunny Coast Enterprises (A)

Sunny Coast Enterprises has sold a combination of films and DVDs to Hong Kong Media
Incorporated for US\$100,000, with payment due in six months. Sunny Coast Enterprises has the
following alternatives for financing this receivable: 1) Use its bank credit line. Interest would be at
the prime rate of 5% plus 150 basis points per annum. Sunny Coast Enterprises would need to
maintain a compensating balance of 20% of the loans face amount. No interest will be paid on the
compensating balance by the bank; or 2) Use its bank credit line but purchase export credit
insurance for a 1% fee. Because of the reduced risk, the bank interest rate would be reduced to 5%
per annum without any points.

a. What are the annualized percentage all-in-costs of each option?

b. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each option?
c. Which option would you recommend?

Problem 20.8 Sunny Coast Enterprises (B)

Sunny Coast Enterprises has been approached by a factor that offers to purchase the Hong Kong
Media Imports receivable at a 16% per annum discount plus a 2% charge for a non-recourse clause.
a. What is the annualized percentage all-in-cost of this factoring option?
b. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the factoring option compared to the options in
Sunny Coast Enterprises (A)?
Assumptions

Net proceeds from factoring

Annualized all-in-cost of factoring

Although the costs of factoring are clearly higher than using bank credit lines, factoring
removes the receivable from the balance sheet, both as an asset and the associated debt
to finance it using the bank credit line. Factoring also provides the cash at the start of
the time period compared to waiting 6 months later under the bank credit line.

Problem 20.9 Whatchamacallit Sports (A)

Whatchamacallit Sports (Whatchamacallit) is considering bidding to sell \$100,000 of ski
equipment to Phang Family Enterprises of Seoul, Korea. Payment would be due in six months.
Since Whatchamacallit cannot find good credit information on Phang, Whatchamacallit wants to
protect its credit risk. It is considering the following financing solution.

Phangs bank issues a letter of credit on behalf of Phang, and agrees to accept Whatchamacallits
draft for \$100,000 due in six months. The acceptance fee would cost Whatchamacallit \$500, plus
reduce Phangs available credit line by \$100,000. The banker's acceptance note of \$100,000 would
be sold at a 2% per annum discount in the money market. What is the annualized percentage all-in
cost to Whatchamacallit of this banker's acceptance financing?

Problem 20.10 Whatchamacallit Sports (B)

Whatchamacallit could also buy export credit insurance from FCIA for a 1.5% premium. It finances the
\$100,000 receivable from Phang from its credit line at 6% per annum interest. No compensating bank
balance would be required.
a. What is Whatchamacallits annualized percentage all-in cost of financing?
b. What are Phangs costs?
c. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this option compared to the banker's acceptance
financing in Whatchamacallit (A)? Which option would you recommend?

b. What is the cost to Phang?

Phang has no costs under this option, and it preserves its credit line.
c. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this option?
The cost of using its credit line would cost Whatchamacallit 9.42% compared to only 3.05% with the
banker's acceptance. However, Phang would avoid the \$500 cost of getting a letter of credit, and would
avoid reducing its available credit line. It could be that the sale of ski equipment itself could be
jeopardized if Phang really needs the lost availabilty of its credit line. It might be possible for
Whatchamacallit to increase its bid to reflect some or all of the financing cost difference.
