Reviving an Israeli Tech Company: A Countertrade Success Story
Here's What We Do Better
Our client was an Israeli technology company specializing in cybersecurity solutions, targeting both government agencies and private corporations worldwide. Despite having innovative products and a growing customer base, the company faced high debt levels, which threatened its overall financial stability, credit rating, and ability to attract new investors.
The client’s primary challenge was to reduce their high debt levels while simultaneously expanding their global presence and increasing profitability. Additionally, they needed to enhance their business reputation, credit rating, and financial health to attract more investments and ensure sustainable growth.
As countertrade experts and consultants, we implemented multiple countertrade mechanisms to help the client solve their debt problem and achieve their goals. The following mechanisms were employed:
Counter-Purchase: We assisted the client in establishing counter-purchase agreements with government agencies and private corporations in key target markets. These agreements enabled the client to sell their cybersecurity solutions in exchange for purchasing goods or services from the buyers.
Direct and Indirect Offsets: We facilitated offset agreements with suppliers in various countries, which led to investments in the Israeli economy and job creation. In return, our client secured contracts for their cybersecurity solutions.
Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT): We negotiated a BOT agreement with a strategic partner in a high-potential market. Our client built and operated a cybersecurity training facility for a specified period before transferring ownership to the local partner, generating additional revenue streams.
Joint Ventures (JVs): We connected the client with complementary technology companies in target markets to form JVs, allowing them to share resources, expertise, and customer bases, ultimately boosting profitability.
To implement the chosen countertrade mechanisms, we took the following steps:
Conducted market research to identify high-potential markets and partners for counter-purchase agreements, offsets, BOT projects, and JVs.
Developed tailor-made countertrade proposals for each potential partner, outlining the mutual benefits and value creation opportunities.
Negotiated the terms and conditions of each countertrade agreement to maximize value for our client while ensuring compliance with local regulations and international trade norms.
Provided ongoing support and monitoring to ensure the successful implementation and execution of each countertrade agreement.
Through the implementation of the aforementioned countertrade mechanisms, our client experienced the following outcomes:
Reduced their overall debt levels by 45% within 12 months.
Increased annual revenue by 250%, leading to a 35% increase in profitability.
Expanded their global presence into 30 new countries within 18 months.
Enhanced their credit rating and business reputation, attracting $15 million in new investments.
Improved financial stability and overall financial health, ensuring sustainable growth.
By leveraging multiple countertrade mechanisms, we helped our client transform their business, reducing their high debt levels, and turning their company into a highly profitable, globally competitive enterprise. This case study highlights the power of countertrade as a strategic tool for companies facing financial challenges and seeking exponential growth.
