Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The transaction consists of an uncommitted revolving reverse factoring facility (the "Transaction") to be provided by IDB Invest to Frisa Industrias S.A. de C.V. and its subsidiaries incorporated in Mexico ("Frisa" or "the Company"). IDB Invest may, at its sole discretion: purchase and discount supplier credit rights payable by Frisa, previously confirmed by the latter, through an eligible electronic platform.

Frisa is a Mexican company engaged in the design, forging, manufacturing, machining, and marketing of rolled rings for industrial uses, made from carbon, alloy, stainless, titanium, and superalloy steels for the following industries: aerospace, construction and mining, industrial machinery, oil and gas, wind energy, and power generation.

Through the Transaction, IDB Invest seeks to facilitate financing at competitive prices to Frisa's Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises ("MSMEs") suppliers in Mexico, through the discount or monetization of their credit rights derived from the sale of goods and/or services to Frisa. The average maturity of the credit rights under the Transaction is expected to be 180 days. Reverse factoring solutions aim to facilitate access to affordable financing for suppliers, mostly MSMEs.
