  6. 6 Umicore Experience with credit insurance during the economic crisis 2008-2010 Elsje Verdoodt, Group Credit Manager, February 16th 2011

  7. Introduction to Umicore • We are a global materials technology company with activities centered around 4 business areas : Catalysis, Energy Materials, Performance Materials and Recycling • Our mission is to make “materials for a better life” • The majority of our growth comes from clean technologies: • technologies that are specifically designed to optimize the use of natural resources and to reduce environmental impact • We are listed on NYSE / Euronext Brussels with a market capitalization of some €4.5 billion

  8. Global presence: 14,400 people in 80 industrial sites Europe • 7,342 people North America • 38 industrial sites • 744 people • 12 industrial sites Asia/Pacific South America • 3,025 people • 1,097 people • 22 industrial sites • 5 industrial sites Africa • 1,512 people • 3 industrial sites Figures include associated companies as of end 2010

  9. Umicore in figures • Geographic spread of sales * At February 10 2011

  10. Credit insurance @ Umicore Umicore has a track record of credit insurance of more than 25 years. Since 2007, a worldwide credit insurance contract insures risks related to sales for most Business Units. We expect from our credit insurer : • Information on the financial health of customers : prevention of claims by setting the right credit limits / no surprises in P&L • Stability of cover or at least mutually agreeing on exit scenario’s • Financial partner, being ready to understand our business and risks. • Collection service for unpaid invoices

  11. How did we know there was a crisis ? • Increased credit risks demonstrated by : • Increased requests from customers to reschedule payments • Increased level of contract repudiation by customers • Increased level of bad debts • More difficult collaboration with credit insurer: • Unilateral changes to the contract (obligation to report overdues / waves of ‘mass’ decisions) • High level of credit limit reductions and cancellations • Very low acceptance rate on new requests • Frustrating way of working : • Hard to reach usual interlocutors or anybody • Negotiated decisions being regularly overruled by computer decisions

  12. Reaction by Umicore • Identify problem cases : • After a period of high metals prices (2007) and combined with a period of low ordering, our credit limits were high. “Only” 10% of the reductions or cancellations were instantly problematic. • Of these, respecting the lower or 0 limit gave many times rise to breach of contract / contingency losses • 80% of newly requested limits were not fully approved • Discuss problem cases with the insurer. • For remaining cases, asses if a “Umicore” limit (no cover) can be set-up • Financial /commercial situation of customer • Trade and payment experience • Contribution to Umicore result /contingency risks • Approval by Umicore Management in function of authorisation. KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER

  13. “Credit insurance facilitates your business…we agree, in normal economic circumstances. During the crisis, it has also been a complication of our business approach”

  27. Credit insurance Daikin ( ° 1981 ) • Move towards more centrally negotiated policies • Diverse risks : • distributors / end customers / installers / wholesellers • Europe / Africa / Middle East • Japanese culture on credit ( insurance ) • credit insurance is not widely spread or even unknow • “zero risk” approach

  28. Daikin experience 2008 - 2009 • Turnover decrease • Limited increase DSO & Bad debt ratio • Premium rate rather stable • Reduction or cancellation of limits : • no real reason related to customer • no time to take countermeasures OK but …….FRUSTRATION : cfr Japanese image : loss of trust ( take away umbrella ) • very limited transparency on evolution of limits • no diversification ( e.g. country approach )

  29. Daikin Europe actionplan : • Professionalisation own credit management : • credit control manual • intense follow up and coaching affiliated companies • evaluationsysteem credit management • Internal rapporting ( EMEA level ) was increased : • evolution own risk • KPI and target setting ( DSO, overdue, bad debt ) • Introduction collection & dispute software • More intense communication with insurers ( exchange available information )

  30. Expectations towards insurers : • Improve communication  Anticipate problems / solutions  More transparancy about limits (new, cancellation, reduction ) 2. Diversification premium / limits ( based on quality of credit management )
