HONG KONG, April 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Tradewind Finance has closed an export factoring facility for a toy trading company based in Hong Kong recently. The funding will be used to support the company’s sales conducted on 75-day open account terms to Europe and North America.
The Hong Kong company specializes in the design and production of foldable toys for babies and pets, and has accumulated nearly three decades’ worth of experience in this sector. As their products save space and provide convenience, they have received recognition from customers both at home and abroad. With such popularity, the company’s sales volume has climbed each year.
However, the sudden outbreak of the pandemic battered the company’s business, and they faced cash flow tension due to the tightening of credit from banks. Confronted with multiple challenges, the company turned to Tradewind’s non-recourse factoring solution that requires no collateral.
Tradewind Finance formulated a tailored financing plan for the company with a quick turnaround. The arrangement provided capital equivalent to 90% of the nominal amount upon delivery of goods, greatly reducing the liquidity strain on the company. Not only did the funding from Tradewind supplement the operating capital of the company, which enabled faster payment to and smoother business relations with their suppliers, but it also allowed the company to take on more orders.
"Our client selected Tradewind as their funding partner due to our customized and flexible services with competitive terms and conditions. Moreover, Tradewind’s facility is scalable, which enables our client to receive funding as sales grow," said Dickson Au, Regional Sales Director at Tradewind’s Hong Kong office.
