Upfront Trade Credit Deal

Active resold the stock


Direct Marketing and retail manufacturer


Our client had a surplus inventory of new can openers and wanted to find a market for them outside the UK.


Active negotiated a deal with a German retailer. The can openers were delivered to a repackaging company to make the goods compliant with German language and standards. All the goods were delivered and sold through retail outlets.


The client spent their Trade Credit as part-payment for TV advertising and printing services and over six years generated Extra Value in excess of £1m.

This deal could work for you if you:

  • Have an inventory problem for Active to solve before any media has run
  • Need help to find an overseas distribution channel
  • Have an existing relationship with Active so you know that you will spend the Trade Credits in the near future
  • Are a manufacturer predominantly based in the UK
