Martin Möller, VP Group Finance and Treasury at Biotest AG, said:

Bond Issuance Management with comprehensive US GAAP amortization
Bond Issuances are becoming increasingly popular for companies to raise cash in order to finance long-term operations. Issuing Bonds are one way of raising money next to bank loans or equity issuance. But regulatory and reporting requirements are becoming complex and require adaptations to your financial software.
COMPIRICUS embedded the new amortization functionality into SAP TRM which is in productive use in the utility industry. Further implementations are scheduled for this year.
Commodity Management and IFRS9 - Easier than you think
In the paper you will find a summary of a typical process in commodity management: It demonstrates that behind the hedging of this risk category, which is still considered as "exotic" for many companies, no insurmountable difficulties are concealed - but it rather is similar to many of the processes already established in treasury management. Starting from January 2018, IFRS 9 will be mandatory and it will be easier even to do hedge accounting for companies reporting in accordance with IFRS. With the appropriate system solution like SAP for Commodity Management, and competent support in methodological and procedural issues, the introduction of efficient commodity hedging can be achieved within a few weeks and is thereby also available as a real alternative for small and medium-sized enterprises.
