Transforming a South Korean Agriculture Company: Overcoming Surplus Product Challenges and Achieving 300% Revenue Growth Through Countertrade
Here's What We Do Better
Our client is a mid-sized agriculture company based in South Korea, specializing in the production of high-quality grains and other agricultural products. They primarily cater to domestic markets but have been aiming to expand their global reach. The company faced a significant challenge in finding buyers for their surplus products, which led to stagnation in growth and revenue.
The client struggled to find buyers for their surplus products, resulting in an increased inventory, financial strain, and untapped growth potential. They sought our assistance in implementing countertrade mechanisms to overcome this challenge and transform their business.
As countertrade experts, we worked with the client to develop and implement a multi-faceted countertrade strategy, employing several mechanisms tailored to their specific needs:
Counter-Purchase: We facilitated a counterpurchase agreement with several international buyers, enabling them to purchase the client’s agricultural products in exchange for goods and services that the client required.
Offsets: We established offset agreements with suppliers in various countries, enabling the client to fulfill their procurement needs at reduced costs, while simultaneously exporting their surplus products.
Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT): We assisted the client in securing a BOT agreement with a foreign company, enabling them to expand their production facilities, increase their export capacity, and create local jobs.
Joint Ventures (JVs): We helped the client establish joint ventures with foreign partners, enabling them to expand their production capabilities and market reach.
We carefully planned the implementation of these countertrade mechanisms, working closely with the client to ensure their success. This involved identifying suitable partners for counterpurchase, offset agreements, BOT arrangements, and joint ventures. We also provided ongoing support and guidance throughout the implementation process.
By employing these countertrade mechanisms, our client achieved remarkable results:
Increased sales revenue by 300% within 12 months.
Expanded their global market reach to over 30 countries.
Reduced procurement costs by 60%, thanks to offset agreements.
Established new production facilities and created local jobs through BOT arrangements.
Strengthened their market position through joint ventures.
Our countertrade expertise and customized solutions enabled the client to overcome their surplus product challenges and unlock their growth potential. The successful implementation of various countertrade mechanisms led to a significant increase in sales revenue, reduced procurement costs, and allowed the client to expand their global market reach. This case study demonstrates the power of countertrade in transforming businesses and achieving remarkable results.
