Coface insures the trade receivables of an Austrian SME that produces aromatic ingredients. This company, which has genuine know-how and an excellent reputation, is on the verge of obtaining its first major contract with a mass market retailer of household fragrance products.
After an in-depth analysis of this retailer’s situation, Coface warns the company of the customer’s non-payment risk. The CEO, with input from the plant manager and the head of sales for large accounts, is nevertheless prepared to proceed with this order, which alone would increase the company’s annual sales by 5%.
After further reflection, the chief financial officer decides to request a meeting with a Coface analyst, who convinces him emphatically of imminent and serious difficulties with the prospect. In the end, the company passes up the deal and leaves it to a competitor. That competitor is never paid by the retailer, which files for bankruptcy just a few weeks after the meeting with Coface.
