    Identifying foreign exchange exposure8 l.jpg
    Identifying Foreign Exchange Exposure

    • The main sources of foreign exchange exposure:

      • Paying for goods and services priced in a foreign currency, or

      • Receiving foreign currency for goods or services provided.

    • Exposures can also arise from:

      • Competitors having a cost base and/or selling their products in a foreign currency

      • Overseas manufacturing plants or subsidiaries

      • Overseas subsidiaries' foreign currency borrowing or surplus cash balances

    • Exposure can manifest itself in a number of different ways:

      • decreased USD cash flows or margins,

      • EPS or balance sheet volatility,

      • overseas contract cancellations,

    Developing a Strategy for Hedging & Risk Management

    • Understanding a company’s foreign exchange exposures allows the identification of the exposures as they occur, and an assessment of the potential impact on a company.

    • Companies can hedge these exposures to minimize the foreign exchange impact on their financials, cash flows, margins, EPS, etc..

    • There are four risk management alternatives available:

      • Spot Transaction.

      • Forward Transaction

      • Purchasing Vanilla Options

      • Structured Products (ex. Collars, Participating Forward, etc.)

    What is the bottom line l.jpg
    What is the Bottom Line?

    Hedging can eliminate the uncertainty of the FX rate that will be used by a company in the future.

    A Foreign Exchange Forward contract allows a company to pay or receive foreign currency in the future at an exchange rate agreed upon today.

    By locking in the rate, a company can protect profits margins and eliminate uncertainty of the value of cash flows.

    A company can know exactly how many U.S. dollars they will pay or receive in the future, so they can better forecast their business’ cash flow cycle and plan operations accordingly.
