International Update Series Webinar: Financial Support to Increase Your Export Sales
|Date||October 14, 2011|
Frost Brown Todd Offices
Have you lost international sales because your purchaser cannot obtain financing or the interest rates available are too high? Have you lost sales because your foreign competitors arranged loans for the purchasers? Ex-Im Bank offers a unique alternative to accepting all risk on international sales transactions. Maybe Ex-Im Bank can assist you in overcoming these obstacles and expanding your international sales.
Join us on Friday, October 14 as Mark E. Klein, Export Finance Manager with Ex-Im Bank, will review some of the tools available from Ex-Im Bank to assist your company in overcoming those obstacles: medium and long-term financing for foreign purchasers, multi-buyer export credit insurance, and export working capital loans. In FY 2011 through August 4, 2011, Ex-Im Bank approved more than $24.5 billion in total export finance authorizations – an all-time Ex-Im record. Those authorizations will support $31.5 billion in U.S. export sales, of which 2,548 were U.S. small business transactions. Learn how Ex-Im Bank recently authorized two transactions totaling $455.7 million to support an Ohio manufacturer's exports to solar-energy projects in Ontario, Canada. Learn about its Global Access for Small Business initiative, which is dedicated to dramatically increasing the number of small businesses exporting goods and services to maintain and create U.S. jobs. For small to medium-size companies these tools can be critical to being able to increase export sales and qualify new customers.
