Grupo Pao de Acucar Case Solution & Answer

In late 2011, one of the largest food retailers in Brazil, Grupo Pão de Açúcar, or GPA (subsidiary of Companhia Brasileira De Distribuição, or CBD) was reviewing its accounts payable to suppliers seeking value terms. Maria Cristina Santos Agency analysis was to examine the conditions of trade credit Oalem had with AMP Ltd., producer of the melon family is located in the northeast of Brazil. Oalem, like most small family businesses, was funded by capital and bank loans mainly held by the family. The case examines how the terms accounts payable (trade credit) should be defined or negotiated between a major retailer and a small supplier, especially when the bargaining power between the two can not be equal. This case shows that trade credit can be as important as the terms of the more traditional forms of financing.
