Transforming a Singapore-Based Healthcare Company’s Surplus Struggles into a Profitable Global Enterprise
Here's What We Do Better
Our client is a leading healthcare company in Singapore that specializes in the production and distribution of medical equipment and devices. Their products cater to hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities across Asia. Despite having a strong presence in the regional market, they faced the problem of surplus inventory due to the inability to find buyers.
The client had a significant amount of surplus inventory, which led to increased storage costs and reduced cash flow. They needed a solution to find buyers for their surplus products and explore new markets to expand their business and increase revenue.
We implemented multiple countertrade mechanisms to address the client’s challenges and achieve their goals:
Counter-Purchase Agreements: We established counter-purchase agreements with healthcare facilities in various countries, allowing our client to sell their surplus inventory in exchange for purchasing a set amount of products or services from the healthcare facilities.
Direct and Indirect Offsets: We facilitated offset agreements with suppliers in various countries, enabling our client to purchase raw materials and components at a lower cost while investing in the suppliers’ local economies.
Build, Lease, and Transfer (BLT): We helped our client set up manufacturing facilities in foreign markets, which were leased to local companies. After a set period, these facilities were transferred to the local companies, enabling our client to establish a presence in new markets and reduce manufacturing costs.
Joint Ventures (JVs): We facilitated strategic partnerships with local healthcare companies in targeted countries, allowing our client to co-produce and distribute their products in those markets, tapping into the local companies’ existing distribution channels and customer base.
Our team worked closely with the client to identify suitable countries for each countertrade mechanism. We conducted market research, analyzed regulations, and negotiated agreements with potential partners. We also provided support in logistics, customs clearance, and contract management to ensure smooth implementation of the countertrade mechanisms.
The implementation of these countertrade mechanisms led to impressive results for our client:
Surplus inventory was reduced by 80%, leading to a 50% reduction in storage costs.
Revenue from the new markets increased by 200%.
Raw material and component costs were reduced by 70% due to offset agreements.
The client expanded its global presence to 20 new countries within six months.
Our countertrade expertise enabled the Singapore-based healthcare company to overcome their surplus inventory challenges, reduce costs, and expand their business into new markets. The impressive results achieved demonstrate the effectiveness of countertrade mechanisms in transforming a struggling business into a highly profitable global enterprise.
