The challenge

The aim of the transaction was to provide a working capital solution to the seller, to allow them to increase their invoice payment terms with clients from 30 days to 90 days. This would enable them to be more competitive in pitching new business, compared to their peers.

The solution

The seller regularly sells a portfolio of (trade) receivables to the “issuer/purchaser” SPV. The true sale is subject to fulfilment of eligibility and portfolio criteria. Among the criteria is the maximum debtor limit, which is issued by Coface (AAA-rated insurance agency).

Dependent on the obligor, the first instalment is defined as a percentage that the purchaser will pay of the invoice face value. The purchaser pays the first instalment upon buying the invoice. The issuer SPV issues a senior and junior class of receivable-backed notes to investors, with the proceeds used to pay the purchase price of the receivables.

On collection of the full invoice amount from the obligor, the purchaser pays the second instalment minus the repayment fee to the seller.
