  1. Chapter 11 Operating Exposure

  2. Operating Exposure: Learning Objectives Examine how operating exposure arises through the unexpected changes in both operating and financing cash flows Analyze the sequence of how unexpected exchange rate changes alter the economic performance of a business unit though the sequence of volume, price, cost and other key variable changes Evaluate strategic alternatives to managing operating exposure Detail the proactive policies firms use in managing operating exposure

  3. Operating Exposure Measuring the operating exposure (AKA economic exposure, competitive exposure, or strategic exposure) of a firm requires forecasting and analyzing all the firm’s future individual transaction exposures together with the future exposure of all the firm’s competitors and potential competitors This long term view is the objective of operating exposure analysis

  4. Trident Corporation: A Multinational's Operating Exposure As a U.S.-based publicly traded company, ultimately all financial metrics and values have to be consolidated and expressed in U.S. dollars. (See Exhibit 11.1) Net operating = Receivables over time - Payables over time cash flow from sales for inputs and labor

  5. Exhibit 11.1 Trident Corporation: Structure & Operations

  6. Trident Corporation: A Multinational's Operating Exposure Operating cash flows arise from intercompany and intracompany receivables and payables, rent and lease payments, royalty and licensing fees, and other associated fees Financing cash flows are payments for the use of inter and intracompany loans and stockholder equity

  8. Expected Versus UnexpectedChanges in Cash Flows Operating exposure is far more important for the long-run health of a business than changes caused by transaction or translation exposure Planning for operating exposure is total management responsibility since it depends on the interaction of strategies in finance, marketing, purchasing, and production An expected change in exchange rates is not included in the definition of operating exposure because management and investors should have factored this into their analysis of anticipated operating results and market value

  9. Trident’s Operating Exposure Trident derives much of its reported profits from its German subsidiary and there has been an unexpected change in the value of the euro thus affecting Trident significantly Trident’s German subsidiary is operating in a euro-denominated competitive environment The subsidiary’s profitability and performance will be impacted by any changes in performance and pricing from its suppliers and customers as a result of changes in the US$/euro exchange rate

  10. Measuring Operating Exposure Short Run - The first-level impact is on expected cash flows in the 1-year operating budget. The gain or loss depends on the currency of denomination of expected cash flows.These are both existing transaction exposures and anticipated exposures. The currency of denomination cannot be changed for existing obligations Medium Run Equilibrium - The second-level impact is on expected medium-run cash flows, such as those expressed in 2- to 5-year budgets

  11. Measuring Operating Exposure Medium Run: Disequilibrium. The third-level impact is on expected medium-run cash flows assuming disequilibrium conditions. In this case, the firm may not be able to adjust prices and costs to reflect the new competitive realities caused by a change in exchange rates Long Run. The fourth-level impact is on expected long-run cash flows, meaning those beyond five years. At this strategic level, a firm’s cash flows will be influenced by the reactions of both existing and potential competitors, possible new entrants, to exchange rate changes under disequilibrium conditions

  14. Strategic Management of Operating Exposure The objective of both operating and transaction exposure management is to anticipate and influence the effect of unexpected changes in exchange rates on a firm’s future cash flows To meet this objective, management can diversify the firm’s operating and financing base Management can also change the firm’s operating and financing policies

  15. Diversifying Operations Diversifying operations means diversifying the firm’s sales, location of production facilities, and raw material sources If a firm is diversified, management is prepositioned to both recognize disequilibrium when it occurs and react competitively Recognizing a temporary change in worldwide competitive conditions permits management to make changes in operating strategies

  16. Diversifying Financing Diversifying the financing base means raising funds in more than one capital market and in more than one currency If a firm is diversified, management is prepositioned to take advantage of temporary deviations from the International Fisher effect

  17. Proactive Management of Operating Exposure Operating and transaction exposures can be partially managed by adopting operating or financing policies that offset anticipated currency exposures Six of the most commonly employed proactive policies are Matching currency cash flows Risk-sharing agreements Back-to-back or parallel loans Currency swaps Leads and lags Reinvoicing centers

  18. Matching Currency Cash Flows One way to offset an anticipated continuous long exposure to a particular currency is to acquire debt denominated in that currency This policy results in a continuous receipt of payment and a continuous outflow in the same currency This can sometimes occur through the conduct of regular operations and is referred to as a natural hedge

  19. Exhibit 11.5 Trident Europe’s Changing Cash Flows under Euro Depreciation

  20. Exhibit 11.6 Debt Financing as a Financial Hedge

  21. Currency Clauses: Risk-sharing Risk-sharing is a contractual arrangement in which the buyer and seller agree to “share” or split currency movement impacts on payments Example: Ford purchases from Mazda in Japanese yen at the current spot rate as long as the spot rate is between ¥115/$ and ¥125/$. If the spot rate falls outside of this range, Ford and Mazda will share the difference equally If on the date of invoice, the spot rate is ¥110/$, then Mazda would agree to accept a total payment which would result from the difference of ¥115/$- ¥110/$ (i.e. ¥5)

  22. Currency Clauses: Risk-sharing Ford’s payment to Mazda would therefore be Note that this movement is in Ford’s favor, however if the yen depreciated to ¥130/$ Mazda would be the beneficiary of the risk-sharing agreement

  23. Back-to-Back Loans A back-to-back loan, also referred to as a parallel loan or credit swap, occurs when two firms in different countries arrange to borrow each other’s currency for a specific period of time The operation is conducted outside the FOREX markets, although spot quotes may be used This swap creates a covered hedge against exchange loss, since each company, on its own books, borrows the same currency it repays

  24. Cross-Currency Swaps Cross-Currency swaps resemble back-to-back loans except that it does not appear on a firm’s balance sheet In a currency swap, a dealer and a firm agree to exchange an equivalent amount of two different currencies for a specified period of time Currency swaps can be negotiated for a wide range of maturities A typical currency swap requires two firms to borrow funds in the markets and currencies in which they are best known or get the best rates

  25. Cross-Currency Swaps For example, a Japanese firm exporting to the US wanted to construct a matching cash flow swap, it would need US dollar denominated debt But if the costs were too great, then it could seek out a US firm who exports to Japan and wanted to construct the same swap The US firm would borrow in dollars and the Japanese firm would borrow in yen The swap-dealer would then construct the swap so that the US firm would end up “paying yen” and “receiving dollars” be “paying dollars” and “receiving yen” This is also called a cross-currency swap

  26. Exhibit 11.8 Using Cross Currency Swaps

  27. Contractual Approaches Some MNEs now attempt to hedge their operating exposure with contractual strategies These firms have undertaken long-term currency option positions hedges designed to offset lost earnings from adverse changes in exchange rates The ability to hedge the “unhedgeable” is dependent upon predictability Predictability of the firm’s future cash flows Predictability of the firm’s competitor responses to exchange rate changes Few in practice feel capable of accurately predicting competitor response, yet some firms employ this strategy

  28. Summary of Learning Objectives Foreign exchange exposure is a measure of the potential for a firm’s profitability, cash flow, and market value to change because of a change in exchange rates. The three main types of foreign exchange risk are operating, transaction, and translation exposures. Operating exposure measures the change in value of the firm that results from changes in future operating cash flows caused by an unexpected change in exchange rates Operating strategies for the management of operating exposures emphasize the structuring of firm operations in order to create matching streams of cash flows by currency: this is termed matching

  29. Summary of Learning Objectives An unexpected change in exchange rates impacts a firm’s expected cash flow at four levels: 1) short run; 2) medium run, equilibrium case; 3) medium run, disequilibrium case; and 4) long run. Operating strategies for the management of operating exposure emphasize the structuring of firm operations in order to create matching streams of cash flows by currency.This is termed natural hedging. The objective of operating exposure management is to anticipate and influence the effect of unexpected changes in exchange rates on a firm’s future cash flows, rather than being forced into passive reaction

  30. Summary of Learning Objectives Proactive policies include matching currency of cash flow, currency risk sharing clauses, back-to-back loans, and cross currency swaps Contractual approaches have occasionally been used to hedge operating exposure but are costly and possibly ineffectual Strategies to change financing policies include matching currency cash flows, back-to-back loans and currency swaps
