Transforming a Canadian Capital Projects & Infrastructure Company through Countertrade: A 250% Revenue Increase and Global Expansion
Here's What We Do Better
Our client is a Canadian-based capital projects and infrastructure company that specializes in the construction and management of large-scale projects such as highways, airports, and power plants. Their target audience includes government agencies and private sector clients in various industries who require infrastructure development and management services.
The company faced challenges of undercapitalization and difficulty accessing capital, which hindered their ability to pursue new projects, expand operations, and stay competitive in their industry. They sought our expertise to identify and implement countertrade mechanisms that would address these issues and transform their business.
To address our client’s challenges, we implemented multiple countertrade mechanisms, including:
Direct and Indirect Offsets: We facilitated agreements with suppliers in various countries, which required them to invest in our client’s operations, leading to a significant reduction in costs.
Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT): We assisted the client in securing contracts to build and operate infrastructure projects in several countries, with the ownership transferring to the host countries after a specified period.
Joint Ventures (JVs): We facilitated strategic partnerships with local companies in target markets, allowing our client to leverage the local partners’ resources and expertise, while sharing the risks and rewards.
We first conducted a thorough analysis of our client’s operations, target markets, and financial needs. Based on this analysis, we identified the most suitable countertrade mechanisms and helped our client negotiate and establish the necessary agreements.
We then worked closely with our client and their new partners to ensure a smooth implementation of the countertrade mechanisms, carefully monitoring the progress and making adjustments as needed.
Through the implementation of multiple countertrade mechanisms, our client experienced the following results:
250% increase in revenue within 18 months.
Expansion into 20 new countries.
A 70% reduction in costs through offset agreements with suppliers.
Establishment of 10 new strategic joint ventures.
Successful completion of 15 Build-Operate-Transfer projects.
These results significantly improved our client’s financial position, enabling them to access additional capital, pursue new projects, and compete more effectively in the global marketplace.
The implementation of various countertrade mechanisms transformed our client’s business, helping them overcome undercapitalization and access capital. By leveraging these mechanisms, the company achieved impressive growth, expanded into new markets, and strengthened their competitive position in the capital projects and infrastructure industry.
