CFOs Struggle with Currency Risk Amid $6B Increase in Total FX Impacts from Previous Quarter
European Companies Lead Suffering as Headwinds Jump 349%
SAN DIEGO: Kyriba’s latest Currency Impact Report (CIR) shows multinational companies experienced over $29bn in total impacts to earnings from currency volatility in the second quarter of this year. The CIR studies the quarterly impacts of foreign exchange (FX) exposures among 1,700 multinational companies based in North America and Europe with at least 15 percent of overseas revenue. The combined pool of corporations reported $20.15 billion in FX-related headwinds and $8.99 billion in tailwinds in the second quarter of 2023, with North American companies reporting $14.43 billion in headwinds, and European companies reported $5.72 billion in headwinds.
“Currency impacts are a global phenomenon and no geographic region is immune, demonstrated by the massive increase in European headwinds from last quarter,” said Melissa Di Donato, Chair and CEO at Kyriba. “This data is a clear signal to global organizations with significant overseas exposure that currency volatility continues to erode value. Quantifying the impacts of FX on their businesses is critical for CEOs and CFOs to execute data-driven risk management programs.”
Highlights from the November 2023 Kyriba Currency Impact Report include:
“CFOs have a long way to go to cost effectively manage FX risk to protect balance sheets, earnings and cash flow from currency swings,” shared Di Donato. “Staying vigilant for the remainder of the year and into next year should be a top priority to mitigate the currency effects from geo-political events, economic volatility and financial market concerns.”
