Indicative Advances Program - 2017 Season

The current indicative ‘Advances Payments’ program for the Fixed Price Forward Contract Pool, Target Price Contract Pool, Guaranteed Floor Pool and all other pools for the 2017 season is reported below.  The program represents the average returns for all pools and pricing platforms for raw sugar supplied under the RSSA, On-Supply Agreements and Grower EI Sugar Supply Agreement. Suppliers will be paid a proportional amount of QSL’s then current estimate of the forecast final weighted average pool price the Supplier will receive for raw sugar supplied under these agreements, with some exceptions. The 2017 season will see the introduction of the Accelerated Advances Program for the Fixed Price Forward Contract Pool, Target Price Contract Pool and Guaranteed Floor Pool whereby participants in that pool will receive 90% of the pool value by December 2017 where so elected. Suppliers to the Fixed Price Forward Contract Pool and Target Price Contract Pool will have the option of selecting the accelerated advances program or remain with the standard advances program.

Changes in pool values between now and the final payment will influence the actual rates paid.
