Buyer finance, supply risk and extended payments


Mar 26, 2019   11:00 AM — 12:00 PM

Mohamed Ait Mansour Concordia University, Canada

In this work, we explore the stakeholders' decision depending on the payment term extension and the supplier's production disruption. The proposed is based on a simple supply chain model with one retailer and one capital constrained supplier with disruption production. The retailer determines the intermediary financing contract. The main results: (i) it exists a production disruption threshold which the buyer finance contract is efficient, (ii) the payment-term extension is limited by the supplier's working capital and the supplier's disruption production, (iii) the retailer should balance between payment in advance and payment-term extension to solve the supplier's financial issue.

Free entrance.
Welcome to everyone!
