Trade finance

On 11 December 2017, Export Development Bank Canada (EDC) announced export financing for various Canadian exporters (extractive-oil & gas) relating to exports to Mexico. The stated purpose of the transaction is the renewal/refinancing of credit facilities to P.M.I. Trading Limited, 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.$25-50 million. Taking the lowest possible amount, in this case, Can.$25 million (approx. U.S.$19.55 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.
