We have advised CRX Markets AG, Munich, on the structuring and implementation of a supply chain finance program for the Vattenfall group. The program was launched in close cooperation between CRX Markets AG and Helaba Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen.

The program comprises the German business of the Vattenfall group and extends to 20 subsidiaries of the group. The program enables suppliers to sell their accounts receivable from the Vattenfall subsidiaries concerned at favorable conditions before maturity.

"Our project with CRX Markets and Helaba is innovative in the growing market for FinTech companies. It supports the widespread belief that FinTech companies constitute a valuable addition to the services offered by traditional banks. This was impressively confirmed by the involvement of Vattenfall, Europe's largest energy company," comments Dr. Matthias Eggert, Partner of the Banking & Finance Practice Group in Munich.

As a start-up established in 2012, CRX Markets is an independent, integrated trading platform for short-term corporate financing. Companies benefit from a stabilization of the supply chain as well as an optimization of the performance of the working capital.
