On January 2d, 2012, Canon expects to ship 750,000 all-in-one fax, printers, and copy
machines from its plant in Japan to the US, which it will sell through US dealers on 240-
day terms at $95 each. So Canon will receive payment from its dealers on August 28th,
2012. Assuming that Canon needs to cover its expenses in Japan and thus wants to hedge
its Yen/US$ exposure using a forward contract with a Japanese bank in the US, what is

What are two other ways Canon might hedge their Yen/US$ exposure?
