Belco Global Foods is a leading marketer of poultry, meat and other food products. Majority of their products are sourced in the United States and then exported to more than 125 countries. Belco has seen rapid growth and great success due largely to its commitment to understanding markets and its customers. Because of their commitment their customers have kept them informed of local demands, and have helped them gain invaluable knowledge about foreign suppliers, which has helped Belco source some products more effectively from other countries.
Pam Arnold leads Belco’s Global Credit team, which oversees risk management and the collections of accounts receivable. Between 40 and 50 percent of Belco’s sales are made on open account terms and it is this team’s job to make sure customers fulfill their payment obligations. At any given time if just a few receivable’s turn into bad debts that need to be written off, Belco’s overall profitability will suffer markedly. Therefore, Belco has a standardized process for analysis of all potential customer’s credit and then granting only those will a solid past history of payment open account terms.
In this case, Belco has granted Kooritsa Kiev open account terms and it appears this may have been a bad decision. Kooritsa Kiev has an outstanding receivable of $84,000(5,411,674 Rubles) with an additional receivable of $78,000(5,025,126 Rubles) due in 15 days. Belco and Kooritsa Kiev have been doing business with each other for over 4 years, in those 4 years Kooritsa Kiev has placed several large orders and has always paid promptly.
Pam Arnold has no idea why they have fallen so far behind but she is not about to sacrifice Belco’s strong 30 year history of being able to collect on its account receivables.

Belco Case Study

...Belco Global Foods (Belco) is a leading marketer of poultry, meat and other food products. Most of their products are exported to more than 125 countries around the world. Exporting frozen and refrigerated foods is inherently risky. Belco manages that risk with a global and professional team of credit and risk managers. This team is charged with assessing the financial and product risk of each of Belco’s customers as well as collecting payments from any overdue invoices. The credit and risk management team built relationships with customers and monitored markets in an effort to limit Belco’s credit losses. As of 2008, about 99.8 percent of Belco’s portfolio was current. However, in late 2009 Belco had an unfortunate situation with a Russian wholesaler. Kooritsa Kiev was 40 days past due on a payment for $84,000 and they also had an outstanding balance of an additional $78,000 that was due in 15 days. Kooritsa Kiev had been trading with Belco since 2005. The company was a loyal customer who earned the opportunity to trade with Belco on open account terms. According to the mutually agreed open account terms, Kooritsa Kiev was required to send payment to Belco 30 days after they received said goods. Between 40 and 50% of Belco’s sales were on account and it was up to the credit team to make sure customers fulfilled their obligations. Due to low margins in the food marketer industry, collecting receivables played a major role in the survival and growth of the company....

Belco’s earnings increased sharply in 2010, and bonuses were paid to the management staff for the first time in three years. Bonuses are based in part on the amount by which reported income exceeds budgeted income. Maria Gonzales, vice president of finance, was pleased with reported earnings for 2010 and therefore thought that pressure to “show” financial results would subside. However, Tom Lin, Belco’s division manager, told Gonzales that he “saw no reason why bonuses for 2011 should not be double those of 2010.” As a result, Gonzales felt pressure to increase reported income to exceed budgeted income by an even greater amount, a situation that would ensure increased......
