Delivering a valuable solution…

A US exporter of electrical equipment for the trade has to contend with non-payment by a Brazilian reseller. Unfamiliar with local rules and practices, the company’s legal advisors and chief financial officer are not sure which course to pursue.


The company calls on Coface, which has had an office in Brazil since 1998. The Coface team contacts the reseller. Given the latter’s difficulties, they reach an amicable agreement and come up with a solution consisting of a ten-month repayment plan.


At the end of this period and backed by a study commissioned with Coface, the US exporter decides to continue the relationship with this reseller. Since then, the reseller has been a reliable partner.
