The challenge

One of Australia’s biggest retail department stores had slow moving stock. They were looking to recover full value of the stock.

Our solution

  • Active purchased the stock at its original list price using Trade Credit. The Trade Credit issued to the Department Store was three times the assets fair market value.
  • Active remarketed the stock through a market sale.

  • Active then identified with the client’s areas of their procurement spend to utilise their Trade Credit which best fitted with their business requirements.

  • The client was then able to use this as part payment towards a number of their procurement areas, particularly media and freight.

  • The Department Store was able to realise full value for the stock by receiving the full market value of the stock.

  • They were able to use a Trade Credit to deliver value in a number of their procurement areas.

  • Delivering to the client better returns on excess stock and driving value back into the business in key procurement areas.

If I had my life to live over again I would elect to be a trader of goods rather than a student of science. I think Barter is a noble thing.
