Financial assistance in foreign market

On 18 June 2018, Export Development Bank Canada (EDC) announced an export guarantee for St. Clair Technologies Inc. The stated purpose of the transaction is support for working capital/general corporate purposes for a subsidiary of St. Clair Technologies Inc. in Mexico.

EDC publishes value ranges rather than precise values for the projects it finances. The present project will receive an amount in the range Can.$15-25 million. Taking the lowest possible amount, in this case, Can.$15 million (approx. U.S.$11.43 million), is our conservative estimate of the financing received.

The GTA includes state guarantees and other financial incentives that are likely to affect the restructuring and performance of firms facing international competition, whether from imports, in export markets and from foreign subsidiaries.
