Trade finance

On 22 August 2013, the Australian export credit agency Efic published its 2012/13 annual report. The report included a list of all beneficiaries of trade finance for the given fiscal year.
One of these beneficiaries was UGL Ltd, which was offered a bond worth 50 million AUD for construction and engineering services abroad.
Given that Efic does not provide the exact date that the trade finance deal was signed, the most conservative date, i.e. the 30 June 2013, was set as the inception date.
