R ICK KFACTORS
8.1 Risk associated with the reliability on major suppliers or manufacturers. ment Pcl.), whhich is 52.8 The highhest supplier proportion is SCG Plasticcs Co., ltd. (aa subsidiary of Siam Cem percent of o total purchhase in 2010. However grooss profit marrgin from SCG G is only 17.225 percent off total gross profit margin of the Coompany. However, this purchasing proportion declines continuously. In 2004, thiss proportion was 63 perccent of total w declinedd to 52.8 perccent of total purchase, evven though thhe Company's purchase purchasee; in 2010 it was amount from f SCG Plaastics Co. , lttd. increase from f 1,225 Million M Baht in year 2009 to 1,709 in yeear 2010 or 39.50% increase due to the correlation of our product and oil price which increasedd compare with the year 2 slightly inncrease from tons 30,671 in i 2009 to tonns 34,614 in 2010 or 13% 2009, butt the purchase volume in 2009 increase.. Hence thhe company tries to expaand variety off products into new markket which the company haas increase supplierss in rubber inndustry. Moreover, the com mpany strateggy still intendds to expand specialty prooduct sales volumes which are prroduced by suppliers moree than 20 supppliers. Most of such supppliers appointted only the Companyy as their ageent in Thailandd. They have higher gross margin rate, lower price risk, high growwth rate and few comppetitor.
8.2 Risk associated with the reliability on the officceers. Due to mostly m sales occcurred thru sales s representative, thereffore sales volume has direct relationshipp with sales representative. The Coompany has risk r associateed with the reliability on sales representaative. If they resign, r their s and proofit especially commodity polymer. p But client maay move followw them that may cause the decrease of sales selling off certain speccialty productts may need knowledge and expertise of sales representative annd technical support from f supplierss. If such salees representattive resigns, thhe Company may encounter problem. However H the Companyy deals with client for a long time so it can redduce risk from m losing the client. The Companyâ€™s managem ment has knoowledge and expertise about all products, includingg continuous training policcy therefore sales reppresentative can be deveeloped to replace continuuously. Moreover the Company has good g client databasee therefore neew sales reprresentative caan track existiing clients eaasily. One impportant thing is when the client connfident the quuality of speccialty productss, they shall not n change too use other pproduct unlesss they have necessarry reason.
8.3 Risk associated with the Accounts Receivable. Now GC seells the goodss in credit term m mostly. Thuus, if account receivable turns to be badd debt significcantly, GC may encouunter a delinqquency risk and a affect thee company’s profitability. However, H GC has sales voolume per client with value not excceed 5% of tootal sales in order o to reducce risk, moreoover GC had the policy to verify the t customers and closely follow f › up finnancial behavvior as well ass payment clients’ creedit before proovide credit to capacity off GC’s custom mers. Now GCC sets the teaam to consideer the credit of o the clients, both new and old one and also set s the creditt approval syystem, which separate froom sale depaartment to coontrol the unssafe sale. Moreover, GC has insuurance, whichh covers the damage d from m account recceivable. It innsures againsst the bad debt of cusstomers, whicch the outstannding is more than 3 hundrred thousand Baht and covvers 90 perceent of total bad debt value. v The minimum insuraance premium m is 3.75 millioon Baht per year y and the maximum prootection is 100 millionn Baht. The innsurance com mpany set inssurance coveerage of eachh client. GC sets the doubtful debt allowance according too the risk of accounts recceivable, the past experieence and thee present stattus of the t reserve clients. Theen GC compaares with the allowance forr doubtful debbt and insurance to verify if GC needs to more doubbtful debt allowwance.
8.4 Risk associated with exchange rate. Nearly all of o the goods bought from foreign supppliers are in US Dollar term m. In 2010, GCC imports thee goods in foreign currrency accounnts for 26.03 percent of tottal purchase. From the foreign currencyy accounts, 99% 9 are in US Dollar account. If the t exchangee rate of Thaai Baht againnst US Dollar fluctuates, itt may affect the GC’s profitabilityy. However, too protect the exchange ratte risk, GC follows the movvement of thee exchange raate of Thai Baht againnst US Dollarr closely by asking a the addvice of the bank to deteermine whetheer GC shouldd buy the forward coontacts. GC has the policy that there is not speculatee. GC must not n buy the forward contaccts without the trading obligations. Moreover, GC will not sell s the goodss in advancee without agreee the exchannge rate with the clients or o buy the forward contacts. By theese reason, Thhe Company can prevent a certain level of risk from fforeign exchaange rate.
8.5 Risk associate with working capital Since GCC has to reserrve the inventtory for deliver to the clientts in a short time and credit term of clients is about 77 days, which is longer than the credit term of o suppliers, which is about 20 days. TThis causes GC G have to maintain a number off working cappital for operaation, which has. cash cyycle 57 days. If sale of the company increasess significantlyy, GC may neeed to find more capital souurce, which iss more costly than the finanncial cost in the preseent. GC curreently can purcchase goods from vendorrs such as SCCG Plastics Co., C ltd, SCG Performancee Chemicals Co., Ltd and Thai Plasstic and chem mical for the credit c period of 60 days, however h The Company haas source of m many financcial institutionss which offer lower interestt rate. The Coompany purchhase goods with w cash by fund from financingg from financiaal institutions instead of veender’s creditt in order to take trade disscount from vender, as a result Thee Company has h better grooss profit marrgin. By the way, w The Company still cann utilize trade credit from vendors when w neededd to increase working w capitaal. Currentlyy, as at Decem mber 31, 20110, GC has thhe credit facillities from maany financial institutions i annd still have available amount for more m than 80% % of the total credit amounnt. This makess GC has the stronger working capital a at Decembber 31, 2010. Moreover, GCC is likely to status annd improves thhe debt to equity ratio to be 1.43 times as get the better conditions from bank due to GC’s good perform mance.
8.6 Risk associated with the fluctuations in the price of goods in the world market Although GC sells thee goods to thee domestic cuustomers mosstly, product price p fluctuatees with the world w market because the petrocheemical goods is commodityy produce, which dependss on uncertainn demand annd supply in the worldd market. GC’ss profitability changes according to the world market price as the cycle. There isi the risk in the case that GC buyss the goods inn the high pricce and the prrice declines. This may leaad GC to sell inventory to the clientts cheaper or lower than buying price,, which causee GC’s profitaability’s lowerr or loss in soome cases. However, GC tries lowwer this risk by b keeping inventory in thee optimal leveel of the goodds, which hass high price d all the time. Moreovver, for the fluctuatioon, and followws the changging price frrom the globbal supplier data customerrs, who orderr the big amoount in advancce, GC is suppported abouut the quantityy and price directly d from manufactturers and/or suppliers. Thhis can lower the risk. Furtthermore, speecialties products are few affected by price flucctuation becauuse GC sets the t price accoording to costt plus policy. In quarteer 2 of year 20010, The Com mpany has losssfrom diminiishing in prodducts value foor 4 million baaht and they were reveersed in quartter 3 of year 2010 2 due to thhe product vaalue turned to be higher andd had alreadyy sold out.
8.7 Risk associated with low profit margin Profit marggin of GC is relatively loww, which 60% % of total sale is Commoddity polymer. Thus, factorrs i.e. the fluctuation of interest raate, foreign exchange, quaality of accouunt receivablee and inventoory managem ment could p margin. However, thee continually improvementt of the Comppanyâ€™s perform mance make better the affect net profit working caapital and D//E ratio conssequently enaable the Com mpany to havve better offeer and condition from commerciaal banks. Furtthermore, GCC follows the exchange raate policy, cuustomer credit policy and inventory managemeent policy clossely includingg cost developpment policy, which shouldd lower the risk of low profitt margin. Moreover, Increasing off sales in speccialty productts is the policyy to reduce rissk associatedd with low proffit margin. m 868 million Baht in 2009 to 1,236 millioon Baht in In 2010, the companyâ€™s specialty prooduct growth increases from 4 Thee Company improved grross profit margin m from 7.09% 7 in 2009 to 7.36% % in 2010 2010 (or 42.40%). increasinglly.
8.8 Risk associated with terminates the distributing agent contact. The periodd of distributinng agent contacts are eitheer yearly basiss or 2 years basis b which iss normal practice in the petrochemical industry. Thus, GC will face the riskk from terminaation of agentt agreement iff GC could noot perform t supplierâ€™ss requiremennt i.e. cannott achieve thee sale targett or cannot maintain the required following the infrastructuure. However, GC G has goodd performance continuously and also has h many reggular clients, iincluding devvelop new client grouup in variouus industriess which satissfy the mannufacturers. Moreover, G GC contacts with the manufacturers closely too explain the progress p of domestic saless and market developmentt . Thus, thee manufactureers still reneww the agreemeent although GC G cannot acchieve the sale target because they understandd the reasons. Due to theere is trend of o merger andd acquisition in order to create c value added. So wwhen our suppplier was acquired by b other comppany, it may cause c loss of such supplieer. With this reeason, as at 331 Decemberr 2010 the Company did not reneww agent agreeement with BASF B who acquire Ciba Specialty (Thailand) Co., Lttd. due to overlapping of some prooduct between other supplierâ€™s productss and BASFâ€™s products. t company can find new supplier, Quaalichem Specialties in ordeer to replace thhose productts. However, the
