1.0 Introduction Presentation title in footer 3 Nigeria is predominantly an agrarian economy, with the Agriculture sector contributing about 40% of GDP and employing over 60% of the labour force. In spite of this, the Oil and Gas sector continues to dominate government and export revenues, accounting for about 70% and 95% of revenues, respectively. Given the challenges of oil dominance, particularly in view of decreasing demand by the United States, and discovery of oil by competing nations, the Federal Government, under the current Transformation Agenda seeks to diversify the economy through increased production and exports of non-oil products.
Introduction Cont’d Presentation title in footer 4 Currently, Nigeria’s non-oil export revenue is insignificant. Of the total export revenue of N15.28trillion (US$97.03bn) in 2012, the oil sector accounted for about 97%, while the non-oil sector contributed a paltry 3%. The above trend, which has persisted since the post-SAP period in 1986, can be attributed to a myriad of factors, principal among which include: low investment and poor farm yield Dominance of raw agricultural commodities and insignificant amount of value-added non-oil exports Poor access to long term concessionary funds by exporters has also contributed to the observed trend
2.0 Types/Instruments of Export Finance Presentation title in footer 5 Export finance has some peculiarities given that international trade is sensitive to Quality of product Price Delivery schedules, and Payment terms (must be flexible) While export finance takes various forms and types, its categorization may be done according to the purpose of finance, stage of export operations or tenor of loan In general, the following financing instruments are used for export transactions.
Sub-title Trebuchet MS 20pt THE TRADE FINANCE TRANSACTION CHAIN Flow of Goods Producer Trader Consumer BANK Bridge Financing Pre-shipment Financing Post-shipment Financing Import Financing
Type / Instruments of Export Finance Presentation title in footer 8 Pre-Shipment Financing/ Packaging Credit This is a financing arrangement preparatory to shipment, which is usually short term in nature Post-Shipment Financing This is essentially financing for the period after shipment Supplier’s Credit Here an exporter extends credit to the buyer in the importing country to finance the buyer’s purchases. Documentary Credit Here a bank, (Usually in the importer’s country) undertakes to pay for shipment, provided the exporter submits the required documents (such as clean bill of lading, certificate of insurance, certificate of origin) within a specified period
Types / Instruments of Export Finance Presentation title in footer 9 Buyer’s Credit This is a financial variant whereby a financial institution in the exporting country extends a loan directly or indirectly to a foreign buyer to finance the purchase of goods and services from the exporting country Forfaiting The exporter surrenders, without recourse to him, his rights to claim payments for goods delivered to an importer, in return for an immediate cash payment from a forfeiter, thus converting a credit sale to cash sale
Type / Instruments of Export Finance Presentation title in footer 10 Structured Finance This technique essentially transfers risks in trade financing from parties less able to bear those risks to those more equipped to bear them in a manner that ensures automatic reimbursement of advances from underlying assets. Such assets include inventory and export receivables Factoring It is a process used by some exporting companies whereby a factor (usually an international bank) purchases the debt owed to the exporting company by a foreign client (at a discount). When the client has received the goods, they then pay the money owed to the factor, rather than the original exporter
3.0 Sources of Export Finance Presentation title in footer 11 Export Finance could be obtained from several sources which includes: Deposit Money Banks Capital Market: Offer for Subscription, Bonds, Debentures, etc Development Finance Institutions (DFIs), NEXIM, BOI, NERFUND etc Other Export Credit Agencies, for Buyers’/ Suppliers’ Credit Arrangements: Afrexim, US Exim, Export Import Bank of China, etc Equity / Angel Capital (Loans from friends, family, etc.) In Nigeria, the Banking sector, being the biggest segment of the financial system is the most significant source of funds Unfortunately however, support to the export sector by commercial banks has been limited by tenor and cost of funds
Sources of Export Finance Presentation title in footer 12 The following schematics gleaned from the CBN Annual Report shows that about 97% of deposits in the Banking System are short term funds maturing in one year or less Source: CBN Annual Report
MATURITY STRUCTURE OF COMMERCIAL BANKS’ DEPOSITS Presentation title in footer 13 Also, over the past 5 years, the proportion of loans to the export sector by commercial banks have been less than 2% Besides the short tenor and high cost of funds, the categorisation of export projects/ transactions as high risk could also be adduced to the above trend. Development Banks like NEXIM Bank have therefore been created to fill this gap through the provision of long term funds at concessionary rates

5.0 Constraints to increased intervention by NEXIM Presentation title in footer 22 Government ownership implies that the Bank’s Capital can only be enhanced through budgetary allocations: However, the Bank has been leveraging its balance sheet to access lines of credits The main challenge is dearth of bankable projects, particularly by SMEs who are the main focus of the Bank, being a DFI. Some of the Challenges in handling SMEs include: Higher risk associated with small scale businesses, which operate in a more competitive environment and have lower capacity to withstand adverse developments in the economy Higher transactions costs in handling SME financing Inadequate/Lack of collateral to support loan request Lack of proper business plans/Poorly conceived projects Poor managerial skills/improper record keeping In spite of the above, NEXIM has continued to build capacity through Seminars/workshop in addition to establishing an Advisory Desk to assist SMEs and improve their access to finance.
6.0 Concluding Remarks Presentation title in footer 23 The Bank’s objective is to increase intervention in the underserved, but key sectors of the economy in line with the Federal Government’s Transformation Agenda. NEXIM is particularly interested in working with SMEs and since inception has supported over 900 SMEs, many of which currently rank among the top 100 exporters in Nigeria. We, therefore, welcome applications from bankable projects and exporters in our target sectors as identified above, including of course, members of ISPON. The Bank also invites the informal / small traders as well as large export merchants to avail themselves of the newly introduced ECOWAS Trade Support Facilitate (ETSF), which is designed to deepen and expand Nigeria’s trade in the ECOWAS sub- region, in addition to helping small exporters to expand their businesses and bring them into the formal sector.
