Other industries

Export financing is available to all industries that export goods or services. The ability to offer foreign buyers long-term financing provides an important sales advantage in most industries that export capital goods or services. In addition, Eksfin offers a number of guarantee solutions in connection with export contracts, which can also help to give Norwegian exporters and their subcontractors better access to loan financing in order to grow internationally.

Who does Eksfin help?

Eksfin’s financing solutions are available to exporters, their foreign buyers, companies with export-related income, and Norwegian banks. Foreign buyers of Norwegian capital goods and services can obtain long-term financing in order to select a Norwegian supplier, while Norwegian exporters can receive help in providing guarantees to their buyers and gain easier access to production loans. In addition, Eksfin can work with Norwegian banks to give Norwegian exporters and their subcontractors access to loans to invest in new fixed assets to increase production in Norway, as well as financing to establish production abroad.

  1. Environmental technology

    Eksfin has various solutions to offer exporters in environmental technology and green solutions, such as water purification, waste management, electric charging solutions, and other technologies that help to make society more sustainable. These solutions can include loans to an established foreign player, a start-up project, or a Norwegian-owned subsidiary that offers to lease its technology. Export financing is also an important source of long-term financing of public infrastructure investments, and Eksfin can provide loans to foreign countries. Eksfin’s guarantee solutions for financing capital investments in Norway or a Norwegian subsidiary abroad, as well as guarantees to reduce the buyer’s risk in the transaction, are also relevant solutions for exporters of environmental technology. Examples of such guarantees are advance and contract guarantees, which buyers often require in order to secure any advance payments and to ensure that the Norwegian supplier delivers in accordance with the contract. 

  2. Defence

    Export financing is attractive in relation to extremely large export contracts. We can offer financing to foreign countries buying Norwegian defence technology and equipment. Eksfin’s guarantee solutions for financing capital investments in Norway, as well as guarantees to reduce the buyer’s risk in the transaction, are also relevant solutions for exporters in the defence industry. Examples of such guarantees are advance and contract guarantees, which buyers often require in order to secure any advance payments and to ensure that the Norwegian supplier delivers in accordance with the contract. 

  3. ICT

    In relation to ICT, the export contract must include a one-off investment in equipment or installation services whereby the buyer needs long-term financing with a repayment term of at least two years. Although Eksfin cannot finance the buyer’s pure operating costs, in our assessment of the transaction we will often place additional emphasis on export income in the form of licences, operation, and maintenance in respect of the Norwegian exporter. Eksfin’s guarantee solutions for financing capital investments in Norway or a Norwegian subsidiary abroad, as well as guarantees to reduce the buyer’s risk in the transaction, are also relevant solutions for exporters of environmental technology. Examples of such guarantees are advance and contract guarantees, which buyers often require in order to secure any advance payments and to ensure that the Norwegian supplier delivers in accordance with the contract.

  4. Health

    Eksfin has a variety of solutions for Norwegian exporters of health technology and medicines. Long-term financing is available to actors in both the private and public sectors and to foreign buyers of Norwegian capital goods and services in the health sector. In addition, Eksfin can assist Norwegian exporters with financing in order to make capital investments to increase production in Norway or to establish production abroad, as well as provide production loans in connection with a contract. If a Norwegian exporter is asked to provide a guarantee in connection with a contract, such as an advance or contract guarantee, Eksfin has solutions for this as well.

  5. Other industries

    Eksfin’s solutions are available to all Norwegian export industries, whether they export consultancy services, robot technology, agricultural machinery, or network cables, to name just a few. These solutions can include loans to an established foreign buyer or a Norwegian-owned subsidiary that offers leasing in the local market. In addition, Eksfin can assist exporters with financing in connection with production for a delivery or a major investment in new fixed assets to increase production in Norway. These two solutions are also available to exporters of consumer goods and to Norwegian subcontractors with capital-intensive production in Norway. Furthermore, Eksfin can offer financing when Norwegian companies want to establish a separate subsidiary for production abroad. If a Norwegian exporter is asked to provide a guarantee in connection with a contract, such as an advance or contract guarantee, Eksfin has solutions for this as well.
