The buyer transfers his customers’ outstanding account, which result from the resold goods being delivered from us with reservation of title, completely to us. The buyer is allowed to use or resell the goods within the scope of ordinary course of business, but has to keep every single fee for us, separate to his assets and the assets of third parties. Hence the buyer’s customers’ outstanding accounts are to be considered as transferred to us up to the amount of the buyer’s outstanding account with us.

In case the customer requests to release entitled securities, we will follow up if the realized worth of the securities exceeds our outstanding account.
