Swiss Finance Company Overcomes Surplus Product Challenges with Countertrade Strategies and Achieves 250% Revenue Growth
Here's What We Do Better
Our client, a Switzerland-based finance company, specializes in providing investment management and financial advisory services to businesses and high-net-worth individuals. The company operates in a highly competitive global market, with a client base spread across multiple industries and countries. Their challenge was an inability to find buyers for their surplus products, resulting in high inventory costs and stagnant revenue growth.
The client faced a significant problem in finding suitable buyers for their surplus financial products. This challenge not only led to high carrying costs, but also prevented the company from effectively expanding its services and tapping into new markets. The main issues were:
Surplus inventory of financial products and services.
Limited market access for these surplus products.
High carrying costs and stagnant revenue growth.
We worked closely with the client to implement multiple countertrade mechanisms to address their surplus inventory problem and drive exponential growth in their business. The key countertrade mechanisms implemented were:
Counter-Purchase: We helped the client establish counter-purchase agreements with businesses in various industries, enabling the client to sell their surplus financial products while committing to purchasing goods or services from these businesses in return.
Offsets (Direct and Indirect): We facilitated offset agreements with suppliers in different countries, which led to investments in the client’s home country and increased sales of the surplus products.
Framework Agreements: We assisted the client in negotiating long-term framework agreements with potential buyers, allowing them to sell their surplus products at pre-determined intervals and prices.
Joint Ventures (JVs): We advised the client on forming strategic joint ventures with businesses in related industries, allowing them to access new markets and sell their surplus financial products more effectively.
We began by conducting thorough market research to identify potential buyers and industries that could benefit from the client’s surplus financial products. Following this research, we helped the client establish the necessary countertrade agreements and facilitated negotiations with potential partners and suppliers.
Through strategic planning and continuous monitoring, we ensured the successful implementation of these countertrade mechanisms, resulting in increased sales and reduced inventory costs.
The implementation of multiple countertrade mechanisms led to the following outcomes:
250% growth in sales revenue within a year.
Reduction of surplus inventory by 60% within six months.
Expansion into 20 new markets within the first year.
Establishment of 10 new supplier bases across different countries.
Reduction of carrying costs by 50%.
By leveraging countertrade mechanisms, our client transformed their surplus product challenge into a highly profitable enterprise. Their sales revenue skyrocketed, carrying costs decreased, and the company expanded its operations into new markets. This case study demonstrates the power of countertrade mechanisms in solving business challenges and driving exponential growth.
