    S1000 the top 1000 companies each generated an average S 1 985 billion in sales bringing the combined sales of Singapore s top 1000 companies to a new high of S 1 98 trillion an increase of 22 9 from a year ago Profit margins have also increased although they have yet to return to levels enjoyed three years ago On the other hand the top 1000 SMEs in Singapore seem to have bucked the trend While they registered a 6 4 dip in average sales to bring in combined sales revenue of S 26 3 billion their average profit margins have not suffered a corresponding shrinkage The mixed bag of performance results that Singapore s corporate sector has so far turned in provides some indication of the fragile state of the current business environment and that they are not completely out of the woods In fact as pointed out by the Monetary Authority of Singapore in a brief released on 8th Dec 2011 to provide a quick update of recent economic developments in the Singapore economy any intensification of downside risks to growth such as a worsening debt situation or a full blown financial crisis in the advanced economies could pose some serious challenges to maintaining a sustainable pace of growth in 2012 In fact the DP Credit Rating which measures the probability of a company defaulting on a debt based on their performance in 6 broad risk categories viz profitability capital structure liquidity activity growth and size is a good indicator of how financially prepared Singapore companies are if another downturn were to occur in 2012 An analysis of the DP Credit Ratings of the Singapore 1000 companies and Singapore SME 1000 companies shows that despite the challenges and uncertainties companies in Singapore have performed well with an increasing number of them graduating into the league of Investment Grade companies Although the overall credit worthiness of Singapore s top performing companies has improved since the financial crisis it is to be noted that the proportion of Singapore 1000 companies and Singapore SME 1000 companies receiving the DP7 8 High Risk Credit Rating has not dropped to below the pre crisis level Companies eager to ramp up sales as the economy improved may have been more ambitious to take on extra debt and this could lead to negative consequences especially if the global economy takes a turn for the worse Indeed the continued weak growth prospects of the advanced economies and signs that the emerging economies are heading for a slowdown in growth highlights the need for companies to continue to improve their financial strength by reducing debt managing their inventories tightening their account receivables and monitoring their cash flow more closely While it is important to adapt and be equipped to move forward in the volatile times that loom in the near horizon it is important that Singapore companies do not lose sight of the opportunities offered by the overseas markets For this round the top 100 international

    voice will be riddled with guilt The best way to approach this type of debtor is through negotiation such as part payment now with an agreed timeline for the rest of the debt to be repaid The catch me if you can type If your debtor is difficult to get hold of and is constantly changing their contact number then chances are they are avoiding other creditors not just you They will cheat and dodge in order to avoid payment This type is a hard one for SMEs as they will probably need the help of professionals to locate and secure the money owed The act blur type These people think it is good to delay payment as long as they can Only when you remind them to pay will they do so They will always have an excuse The trick is to review and shorten the payment terms then pursue them as soon as the debt is due They will usually pay but will prioritise and pay the most troublesome creditors first So make sure that s you As the saying goes the squeaky wheel gets the most oil The faker type These guys are liars but are often smooth talking ones They make promises easily but their promises are never kept They often give excuses such as Paid already lah check the letterbox Like most deceitful people they are cowards The long winded type These debtors will often promise a bigger sum but will end up paying less They probably intend to pay at some point but see holding back your money as a form of interest free loan They will talk about everything under the sun except the date of the next payment The macham macham big shot type A bully Will challenge creditor to sue them and refuse to pay Very stubborn hostile and loud These types of debtors are commonly waiting to be made bankrupt so they have nothing to lose The Eh where did he go to type Disappears very easily and does not want to make repayments Difficult to get a hold of and will avoid normal channels of being tracked down Regardless of which type of debtor you are suffering from there are some things that all SMEs can do to help themselves get square with the recalcitrant customer or when considering to extend credit to a new customer First always look for that elusive win win solution Use this when a debtor insists that they cannot make the full payment but appears willing to make some contribution towards settlement Negotiation not threats will be more successful Good listening skills are a must in helping you know when to push or pull towards a specific solution At the end of the negotiation both sides must not have any reluctance at the terms of the deal A reluctant debtor like a frustrated one will often become more problematic Second follow up on the debtors promises By following up on the status of the
