On June 1st, 2017, Sandoz expects to ship 3 million units of a new drug from its Swiss plant to the US that it will sell through pharmacies on 270-day terms at $95 each. Therefore Sandoz will receive payment from these outlets on February 25th, 2018. Assuming that Sandoz needs to cover its expenses in Switzerland and thus wants to hedge its SF/US$ exposure using a forward contract with a Swiss bank, what is the minimum amount of Swiss Francs they should receive on February 25th, 2018 given 9-month forward rate you calculated in problem one for one US $ in terms of SF? What are two other ways Sandoz might hedge its SF/US$ exposure?
