BayBG acquires stake in Delfactis

8. Septem­ber 2019

Munich / Starn­berg — The inde­pen­dent payment service provi­der Delfac­tis AG, Starn­berg, has won BayBG Baye­ri­sche Betei­li­gungs­ge­sell­schaft as an inves­tor. The company offers a solu­tion for 100% del credere protec­tion and reverse facto­ring in payment tran­sac­tions between supplier and purchaser.

As a payment insti­tu­tion appro­ved by the German Fede­ral Finan­cial Super­vi­sory Autho­rity (BaFin), Delfac­tis guaran­tees the highest level of secu­rity. The contract part­ners include more than 3,000 compa­nies from the food, indus­try and trade sectors.

Delfac­tis is one of the few service provi­ders inde­pen­dent of asso­cia­ti­ons and indus­tries that offers central sett­le­ment, i.e. the central sett­le­ment of all payment flows between seve­ral suppli­ers and the medium-sized buyer directly. The Delfac­tis custo­mer (the buyer) has the advan­tage that he mana­ges his credit risk hims­elf. By bund­ling the coverage of its purcha­sing volume through just one credit insurer, poten­tial supplier supply cons­traints are elimi­na­ted and the leverage of its credit rating is maxi­mi­zed. Reverse facto­ring gives buyers addi­tio­nal oppor­tu­ni­ties to opti­mize their working capi­tal. Suppli­ers bene­fit from the 100 percent payment guaran­tee, the elimi­na­tion of deli­very limits impo­sed by trade credit insu­r­ers, and the ability to shor­ten their payment terms via reverse factoring.

The product and team are well posi­tio­ned and have convin­ced us. We are looking forward to the coope­ra­tion.” Delfac­tis CEO Martin Kötje is also satis­fied: “We are proud to have gained a parti­cu­larly renow­ned inves­tor in BayBG. With this commit­ment and the BaFin appr­oval as a payment insti­tu­tion recei­ved at the end of 2017, we are now ideally posi­tio­ned to acce­le­rate our further growth.”
