Fareast Finance & Investment Limited (FFIL)




Non-bank financial institutions (NBFI) are financial intermediaries that accumulate funds by borrowing from the general public and from commercial banks and lend the same to meet specialized financing needs, but are prohibited to accept such deposits payable either on demand or by cheque, draft, etc and operate checking accounts for which their liabilities are not a part of the money supply.

A sound and well-functioning financial system helps mobilize savings, allocate resources, exert corporate control, and facilitate risk management and ease trades and contracts by solving market frictions. Efforts have been continued in FY08 to establish a sound financial system in the country. Despite the stronger growth of some major macroeconomic indicators, Bangladesh economy faced some challenges originating from price hike of oil and petroleum products and some major imported commodities in the international market causing fluctuations in real sector and foreign exchange market in FY08. As a result, the financial market was a little bit volatile in the second half of FY08.

Except these temporary fluctuations in the financial market, the overall market was sound functioning in FY08. With a view to establishing a healthy, sound, well functioning and dynamically evolving financial system, a series of reform measures were initiated in FY08.

In this modern age of the developed society where economic growth is significantly reflected by the financial markets of an economy, it is essential to have the expertise about how market players of these markets are actually performing. The domestic financial market players, whether in capital or money market, are nationalizing their services and gradually convincing potential customers with creative financial instruments. Depository institutions, non depository institutions such as leasing companies, insurance companies are the key market players assuring flow of resources among participants such as individuals, households, public or private businesses. Fareast Finance and Investment Limited (FFIL), a non-bank financial institution (NBFI) has been chosen for the purpose of assessing its financial performances. It was planned to gather the information related to the study. And accordingly, information will be composed.

Financial institutions (FIs) represent one of the most important segments of the financial system in Bangladesh and play a very important role in mobilizing and channeling resources in Bangladesh. In the last half of the FY 2008, the financial sector experienced multifarious problems. Due to political unrest, demand for obtaining credit facilities declined resulting in excess liquidity in the economy.

FFIL gets fixed deposit which is it’s another source. On the other hand, FFIL uses fund to procure fixed assets, maintain statutory reserve with Bangladesh Bank and also to perform lease and term financing.


Financial Activities of FFIL


The purpose of this chapter is to get familiar with the financial activities performed by FFIL. The focus is essentially on lease financing, term financing, syndicate financing, and club financing. Information accumulated for this part is mostly secondary in nature. Some of the primary information has been collected through interview with managers. A questionnaire has been used to conduct interview.

3.1. Lease

Leasing generally was associated with real estate-land machineries and buildings. Today, however, it is possible to lease virtually any kind of fixed asset. Leasing involves economic and legal relations arising from the implementation of the leasing agreement regarding acquisition of the leasing object. A lease is an agreement between a lessor and lessee that allows lessee to use specific property (or properties) for certain period and in return lessee pays to lessor.

3.1.1. Leasing Process of FFIL

To obtain a lease facility from FFIL, lessee has to follow some step-by-step procedures. Also lessee has to stand for some terms and conditions. Lessee can not sublease the leased assets to anywhere. At the expiry of lease period and after fulfillment of all obligations to FFIL, lessee may reschedule the lease on a year-to-year basis at a predetermined lower rental or return the equipment to FFIL or purchase the equipment at a reasonable negotiated price. Normally this varies from 0.50% to 1% of acquisition amount. FFIL is fully flexible regarding the security. Depending of the type of investment and credit risk, this will be finalized with lessee. The total procedure of lease financing from applying for lease to disbursement of lease is described below: Lease application

The lessee has to apply for lease to the Managing Director of FFIL to get the facility of lease finance. The amount of lease and its purpose have to be mentioned in the official notebook of the lessee. Analyze the application

The Managing Director (MD) analyzes the purpose to reach a decision whether to invest in it. The operation and marketing officer then deals with the client if the MD feels the purpose is worth to be invested. Discussion with the client

The operation and marketing officer then carries an informal discussion with the lessee about the prospect of lessee’s business. The officer also visits the client’s business and reports the information to the MD. Sending offer letter to the lessee

If the officer is convinced with the situation, an offer letter is issued to the lessee stating a few details about the lease including interest rate, finance period and amount and the like. A sample of offer letter will be enclosed in the appendices. Collection of necessary documents

If the lessee accepts the conditions of the offer letter, the firm then asks the client to provide the following documents:

· Nature of the business

· Name of sister concern(s) (if any)

· Photocopy of Memorandum and Article of association attested by Managing Director

· Audited Financial reports for last 2 years of lessee’s organization

· Audited Financial reports for last 2 years of sister concern (if any)

· List of Major shareholders or Directors and the their percentages

· Curriculum Vita of Managing Director, Directors of organization

· Details of applied lease items and units

· Information about credit facilities availed from banks

· Detail of the security

· Attested photocopy of TIN, VAT and Trade license

· CIB undertaking Letter to Credit Information Bureau (CIB)

Credit Information Bureau (CIB) is a wing of Bangladesh Bank which maintains a database of institutions and individuals about credit facilities. FFIL sends a letter to the bureau to confirm whether its client has taken any credit facilities from any bank or financial institutions. CIB confirms whether the client is unclassified or classified to the Bangladesh Bank. The client has to be unclassified in CIB. Beside that the status of sister concern(s) must be also Unclassified. Submission of proposal to Managing Director / Board of Directors

A proposal is then prepared by the officer. If the lease amount exceeds Tk.2 million, the proposal is presented to the Board of Directors. If not, the MD justifies the proposal for its approval. In the proposal, the marketing and operation officer mentions the following things:

Table # 3.1: FFIL’s proposal Sanction letter to lessee

If the CIB’s report shows the client unclassified and the Managing Director or Board of Directors approve the lease application, a sanction letter is issued against the lessee by the marketing executive. The terms and conditions of the lease are described in the letter in details. If the party agreed in all the terms and conditions then the lessee will sign the duplicate letter and send back to the lessor and then the further lease process is progressed. Selection of the supplier

The client provides a quotation from the supplier of lease asset to FFIL. The firm then verifies the quotation by comparing it with another quotation collected from another supplier. Some of the assets are needed to be imported from abroad. In such case, the lessee has to carry the all paper works required to import the asset. Documentations

FFIL prepares the documents which are needed to be signed by the authorized signatory of the lessee.

· Lease Finance Agreement

· Demand Promissory Note

· Personal Guaranty

· Corporate Guaranty

· Post Dated Cheques

· Letter of Authority

· Trust Receipts Purchase order

FFIL issues a purchase order to the supplier. The lessee collects the asset from the supplier. Disbursement

When supplier place the leased assets and install it to the lessor, then FFIL disburse the amount to the supplier. Monitoring

The lessee is regularly monitored by FFIL whether they are using the asset as per promise in sanction letter. To assure regular rental payments and take proper care of leased assets by the clients, FFIL keeps eye on the client. Monitoring policies have been mentioned at below:

· Discussion Through telephone with client as soon as the default occurs.

· Letter to lessee and invite for discussion if lessee fails to pay 2 or more rentals.

· Visit lessee’s office to assess the problem and state of business.

· If lessee fails to pay 4 or more rentals, strong letter send to lessee.

· If the situation does not improve, invites lessee to discuss with top management.

· If lessee fails to pay 6 or more, invites lessee to attend Board Audit Committee (BAC) Meeting.

· If lessee fails to fulfill agreement demand, FFIL goes to court to liquidate mortgage property.

3.2. Term loan

Term loans are designed to fund long and medium-term business investments, such as the purchase of equipment or the construction of physical facilities, covering a period longer than one year. Usually the borrowing firm applies for a lump-sum loan based on the budgeted cost of its proposed project and then pledges to repay the loan in a series of installments. (Often payments are made every quarter or even monthly). Term loans normally are secured by fixed assets (e.g. Plant or equipment) owned by the borrower.

3.2.1. Procedures of term finance

The procedures of term financing of FFIL are almost similar to those of lease financing. The difference is FFIL does not have to procure asset for the client’s use, rather FFIL provides capital to the client. So, FFIL does not need to issue any purchase order.

3.3. Syndicate loan

Syndication means joint financing by more than one NBFIs or Banks to the same clients against a common security. This is done basically, to spread the risk. It also provides a scope for an independent evaluation of risk and focused monitoring by the Agent/Lead Arranger.

In syndication financing, NBFIs also enter into an agreement that one of the lenders may act as Lead

Arranger. In such cases, Lead Arranger has to co-ordinate the activities at various stages of handling the proposal i.e. appraisal, sanction, documentation, sharing of security, disbursement, inspection, follow-up, recovery etc. It may also call meetings of syndication members, whenever necessary to finalize any decision.

For instance, GMG Airlines (GMG) requires a lease amount of TK.200 million and applied for it to FFIL. The firm arranges a syndicate loan from other finance companies. In this case, FFIL will be the lead arranger and will co-ordinate and handle different stages of financing.

Figure # 3.1: Syndicate loan

3.4. Club Financing

Like syndicate financing more than one bank or financial institutions attain club financing program to reduce their individual risk. In this type of financing the borrower will attain his borrowed amount from different FI or Banks and will be held liable to pay to each organization. In case of, club financing GMG Airlines (GMG) itself collects the loan amount from different lease companies. Here, GMG is liable to each different financer.

Figure # 3.2: Club financing

3.5. Risks face by Non Banking Financial Institutions

3.5.1. Credit risk

The credit risk is the risk to earning and capital that an obligator will fail to pay to meet the terms of any contract with the financial institutions, or other wise fail to perform as agreed. Credit risk is the primary cause of bank or financial institution’s failure in recent years, and it is the most visible risk facing by bank or other finance institutions mangers.

Credit risk is the possibility that borrowers or counter party will fail to meet agreed obligations. Globally, more than fifty percent of total risk elements in banks and financial institutions alone. In case of lease/term finance borrower may not pay rental/ principal amount/ or interest.

3.5.2. Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk arises due to change in overall market interest rate structure both on borrowing and lending. Interest rate risk arises due to reduction of interest rate on lending form time to time on several occasions. The company has to reduce several occasions to attract more clients and to compete with the competitors. Interest rate borrowing affects profitability of an organization and desired margin to the shareholders.

3.5.3. Market risk

The financial institutions also face significantly market risk. The losses financial institutions may suffer due to adverse changes in interest rates, security prices, and currency prices. Financial institutions may severely make loss due to change of interest rate or foreign exchange rate.

3.5.4. Operational risk

Operational risk could be occur due to possible break downs in quality control, inefficiencies in delivering services, simple errors in judgment by management. The changes can adversely affect a financial institutions revenue flows, its operating costs, and the value of the owner’s investment in financial institutions.


Treasury Function

4.1.1 Task of treasurer

The main function of the treasury division is fund management. Basically every function of this division is concerning fund management. Fund management means proper management of inflow and outflow of required fund.

Treasurer watches carefully the expected inflow of fund will take place in a day and what the required outflow has to be made. If required outflow seems higher than expected inflow then deliberation of treasure starts. The treasurer then goes for gap analysis considering various internal and external changes.

Maintaining proper balance of fund is a tough job. The sources of fund are available but not always cost effective. Because of market fluctuation, changes in economic conditions, competition among existing firms, threats of new entrants, competitive and lucrative offer by existing firm, market virtually turn very competitive and flexible. Profit of financial institution is the difference between the interest rate at which fund is invested and at which it is acquired.

Figure # 4.1: Task of treasurer

From the above figure we perceive that operation’s and marketing effort has no use if the treasurer could not manage the cost effective funds.

Another important thing is to arrange the fund for client on time. This is one of the reasons to choose NBFI rather than Banks. Clients always look for immediate disbursement. The promptness in collecting fund made treasury function more difficult and challenging.

4.1.2. Sources of fund

At this instant we will observe the sources of fund for a financial institution like FFIL.

4.1.3 Credit Line Facility

This facility is the contractual right of a firm with a bank. The firms attain that right get a certain amount of money allotted for that firm and it can withdraw its required money at different time.

Different nationalized and private commercial banks are the main sources of fund for NBFI. To finance their clients, financial institutions keep sources of fund usable to supply fund on time. For instance, FFIL have the benefit of credit line facility of Tk. 10 crore from Ducth-Bangla Bank Ltd. That means FFIL can withdraw Tk. 10 crore at a time or Tk. 5 crore each time at two ‘slices’. This ‘slices’ are called Draw Down in financial jargon. Observing successive growth of FFIL different banks got themselves involved in providing credit line facility to FFIL.

4.1.4 Over Draft Facility

It is also a contractual right to get money from commercial banks for short term. But as a NBFI, FFIL only offers corporate guarantee against this facility.

4.1.5 Fixed Deposit Receipt (FDR)

It refers to deposit made by the general public and different companies for a fixed period of time with a right to get interest at a stipulated rate upon maturity.

FFIL is committed to serving the future and maximizing returns on hard-earned savings of the depositor through giving them best possible rates on their deposits, offering attractive rate of return.

4.1.6 Conditions:

· Minimum tenure is one (1) year.

· Scheme will be governed by The Financial Institution Act, 1993 and circulars issued or to be issued by Bangladesh Bank from time to time in this regard.

· Regulation of The Income Tax Ordinance 1984 is also applicable for the scheme.

4.1.7 Call Loan Finance

It is the loan taken over call with implied condition to pay when it is called for. This usually called over the phone. External sources of fund

· The external sources of fund are:

· Term Liability

· Short term Loan


· Call Loan Internal sources of fund

The internal sources of fund and there position is given below:

· Paid up capital

· Retained earnings

· Current years’ profit

· Statutory Reserve

4.1.3. Gap analysis

One of the important tasks of the treasurer is to monitor:

· There is no deficit of fund.

· There is no idle or unused fund.

If fund faces shortfall frequently when it is required to provide a client, will create a bad perception about the organization. On the other way, the idle funds also bring financial loss as these fund collected at cost. Both of these are expensive.

To overcome this problem, treasurer’s way out is to do Gap Analysis. Here he shows what is to be paid within next month and what is to be received at the same period. If there is a shortfall he tries to fill up the circumstances. And if there is idle fund he ensure to proper use of the fund.

The tools of Gap Analysis are

· Sources of fund

· Ground of use of fund.

4.1.4 Source of funds of FFIL

· Term Loan


· Call Loan

· Probable collection of Lease and Term Finance

· Bank’s free balance

4.1.4. Environmental impact on fund management

Both internal and external environmental factors fund management. Internally fund management got troubled when there is high requirement of fund than typical. It is a good signal for the business as it indicates the prospect. But it might create bad intuition if this happens frequently.

The external factors that affect the management of fund are:

· Agitated political situation– It creates difficulties for the investors to roll up their fund and also affect the payment of the credit facilities to the financer.

· Rapid expansion of cost of fund–As the financial banks are the main sources of NBFI’s is the bank.

Accounting Function

4.2. Accounting system of lease Operation

Realigning the substantial growth of the leasing operation, International Accounting Standard Board (IASB) the successor of International Accounting Standard Committee (IASC) has come up with a distinctive accounting standard (International Accounting Standard-17) relating to leasing operation to facilitate the smooth recording and presentation.

4.2.1. Classification of lease

Two type of lease can be distinguished: a) Operating Lease b) Financial Lease. Sale-and-lease-back is a special financial lease arrangement.

a) Operating lease

Short-term, cancellable lease agreement are called operating lease. Convenience and instant services are the hall-marks of operating lease. For example, a tourist renting a car, lease contract for a computer, etc. the lessor is generally responsible for maintenance and insurance of the assets.

b) Financial lease

Long-term, non-cancellable lease contracts are known as financial lease. Examples are plant, land, building etc. the lessor buys the assets identified by the lessee from the manufacturer and signs a contract to lease it out to the lease.


Sometimes, a user may sell an (existing) asset owned by him to the lessor (leasing company) and lease it back from him. This sale-and-lease-back arrangement may provide substantial tax benefits.

4.2.2 Practical example of recording

Now we will see practical example of recording lease and term finance transactions
