In their daily business activities, the Company and its Subsidiaries are exposed to various risks. The main risks faced by the Company and its Subsidiaries arising from financial instruments are credit risk, market risk (i.e. foreign exchange risk), and liquidity risk. The following is an explanation related to the Company’s risk management on the risks owned by the Company.
The Company and its Subsidiaries are exposed to credit risk in relation to the financial guarantees provided to banks by the Company. The maximum exposure of the Company in this case is the maximum amount that must be paid by the Company if the guarantee is withdrawn. Therefore, the Company and its Subsidiaries have and implement policies and procedures for granting credit to ensure careful credit evaluation and active supervision of accounts receivable. The Company and its Subsidiaries manage the credit risk associated with deposits in banks by monitoring reputation, credit rating and limiting the aggregate risk of each party to the contract.
Foreign Exchange Rate Risk
The Company implements a hedging policy for loans denominated in foreign currencies whose interest rates have been determined in advance to reduce financial turmoil due to exchange rate volatility or changes in market interest rates. In implementing the hedging policy, the Company uses derivative financial instruments, such as cross currency swaps as part of its asset and liability management activities to protect against foreign currency risk and interest rate risk where transactions in currencies are recorded at the rates of exchange prevailing at the time the transactions are made.
Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company and its Subsidiaries cannot meet their obligations when they fall due.
