Surety Bond Factsheet

Surety Bond Factsheet

Typical characteristics and risks

Economic structure and function

By issuing a surety bond, CSC COMPAGNIA SVIZZERA CAUZIONI S.A. commits itself to guaranteeing, within a given time and economic limit, an obligation to do or give of a third party

called the guaranteed contractor towards its creditor called the beneficiary.

Main risks for the bondholder the main risk for the guaranteed contracting party is represented, in the event of the enforcement of the surety bond by the beneficiary and subsequent payment by CSC COMPAGNIA SVIZZERA CAUZIONI S.A. of indemnification to the beneficiary, by the restitution to CSC COMPAGNIA SVIZZERA CAUZIONI S.A. itself of the amount paid to the beneficiary following the enforcement of the surety. Clearly, in order for the enforcement to take place, the necessary presupposition is that the guaranteed contracting party hasn’t fulfilled the obligation guaranteed and that the CSC COMPAGNIA SVIZZERA CAUZIONI S.A. has ascertained, by means of an appropriate investigation of the case, an indemnifiable loss.

Economic conditions for the contractor

- preliminary investigation expenses: minimum ZERO and maximum FRS 10,000.00

- with duration up to one year: charges not exceeding 5.00% - minimum 0.40%

- with duration beyond one year: not exceeding 13.00% - minimum 0.20%.

The above percentages must be calculated on the maximum recoverable amount indicated on the front page of the surety bond.

It should be noted that the economic conditions are determined according to the solvency of the guaranteed contractor. It should be noted that part of the surety bonds indicated in the "surety bonds for companies" section of the Company's website may be issued by banks, subject to suitable information being provided to the client and his express consent.

In fact, the Company, by carrying out a preliminary activity aimed at verifying the solvency, Patrimonialism , profitability, morality, technical and indemnity capacity of the client, can prepare its own independent evaluations that can be used by banks indicated by the same Company to obtain the requested surety. The Company will therefore limit itself to providing consultancy and assigning a credit rating to the client.
