IF assessement question - November 26th, 2008

Hi friends

i have been given a assessment question to complete this semester in IF. Following is the question. Kindly provide me with any possible help so that i could complete this project.

ABC Ltd is a UK subsidiary of a MNC. On the 7th February 2008, it sold \$500,000 worth of goods to a customer XYZ Ltd in the US and expects payment from the customer XYZ Ltd in 3 months time. ABC Ltd does not have any US dollar expenses to match the inflow and is currently short of sterling cash. It has been advised that a 3 month loan can be obtained from one of the following sources:

1. Borrow US dollars immediately from the Eurocurrency market for 3 months and immediately covert the proceeds into sterling.
2. Execute a 3 month forward contract on the foreign receipt and immediately borrow the sterling proceeds from the Eurocurrency market.
3. Borrow an equivalent amount of Euros from a German subsidiary of this MNC.

Note:
• The Amount of money it can borrow = (the amount of USD it will receive in 3 months) – (the interests expenses)

\$/£ Spot 1.9455 1.9457

Forward 3 months 1.3393 1.3359
