T&R: How does this create value for Siemens?
There’s one other big component of the program that we haven’t talked about. The Siemens Credit Warehouse also provides political- and credit-risk protection by purchasing eligible receivables from Siemens business units. Participating business units receive cash, either upon payment by the customer or, in case of customer default, from the Siemens Credit Warehouse. Eligible receivables that are overdue for more than 90 days are treated as defaults. The business unit selling a receivable to the Siemens Credit Warehouse is responsible for servicing activities such as collections and receivables management.
