* SBA - In today's global economy, selling your goods around the world can bring large rewards. With three specialized loan guaranty programs, the SBA can help provide export financing, credit to close a sale, and funds for working capital.
** ExIm Bank - How Ex-Im Bank Can Assist US exporters to boost up their international sales :
Risk Protection ; US exporters shipping on " open account " terms instead of requiring cash in advance or costly & complicated L/Cs , may obtain export credit insurance from Ex-Im Bank mitigating non payment risks ( commercial & political ) of their foreign buyers or prospects. Furthermore , Ex-Im Bank insured foreign account receivables may be used to increase an exporter's borrowing base with a lender , thereby accelerated cash flow.
Working Capital ; Ex-Im Bank can help US exporters to obtain vital loans to fulfill export orders from a lender. An Ex-Im Bank guarantee turns exporter's inventories and foreign account receivables into eligible collateral from the lender.
Term Financing ;Foreign buyers may obtain competitive financing ( with extended repayment terms ) to buy US made capital goods and services.
Show Time appointments can take place either at your booth or at our location (room location to be announced) which is located in the Kansas City Convention Center.
We will review your company information and provide a confirmation e-mail within 48 hours to the start of the show.
