Estas marcas mueven un mercado global ya que cuentan con tiendas en todo el mundo y es famosa por que saca la ropa de moda y a muy bajo costo.

Now Pablo Isla, chief executive of parent company Inditex SA, says Zara needs to speed up. As rivals catch up, Mr. Isla is attempting one of the fastest global expansions the fashion world has ever seen, opening hundreds of new stores and entering new markets.

Análisis PEST Dimensión político-legal: -Situación política: Por lo general España tiene una situación política estable, con un recorrido democrático de 35 años. Se puede hablar de normalidad, aunque existen problemas concretos como el del conflicto vasco. -Política económica: Es la gran apuesta del gobierno, el dinamizar y activar la economía de España, esta no se encuentra en su mejor estado y es un factor muy importante en el desarrollo de políticas nacionales como internacionales. Es un elemente que no juega a su favor. -Legislación económica: La legislación está preparada para acoger nuevos negocios y formas de comercio. La legislación no supone un problema a la hora de llevar a cabo una actividad económica, además de que el gobierno incentiva mediante medidas concretas estas actividades. -Política fiscal: La política fiscal es bastante homogénea en todo el estado, aunque existen comunidades autónomos con competencias para establecer sus propios criterios. -Regulación sobre el empleo: Este punto nos parece importante, ya que el hecho de abrir un nuevo establecimiento necesita de personal y actualmente ha cambiado la regulación laboral.

Case Study Zara, Inditex

...1. Inditex/Zara history (Explain) Amancio Ortega Gaono began Inditex as a way to bring high fashion apparel to the market at an affordable price. After years working in the apparel retail industry in la Coruña, Spain, Ortega left his job in the early 1960’s to being manufacturing trendy designers pieces in cheaper materials and selling these items to local shops. In 1975, Ortega opened his first retail store, Zara, drawn by its inexpensive, fashionable merchandise, and Ortega expanded the Zara chain quickly. 1980’s Ortega joined with computer expert Jose Maria Castellano to design a highly responsive supply chin that could quickly produce the latest fashions. A team of designers would replicate popular items, nearby factories would produce them, and they would be shipped from a central warehouse to stores. In 1985’s, Ortega restructure the company and named it Industria de Diseño Textil S.A., o Inditex. In 1990’s, Inditex expanded internationally and diversified its brand portfolio.

...Receivables decreased during 2009, the same two line items actually increased in 2010, hence the change in the sign. The major contributors to the increase in Inventories and Account Receivables are the newly opened stores (which in turn results in almost 10% increase in the total number of stores), as well as the growth in sales. Moreover, getting into the e-commerce business also plays a role as it is a new sales channel (with added inventory) for the new customers. 5. Review management's discussions of the historical results in 2010 as well as their forecast for 2011 and focus on their discussion of new store openings. a. Does Inditex appear to be contracting or expanding its store presence? Inditex’s performance in 2010 was mainly driven by opening of new 437 stores and increase in retail space by 10%. With a sales growth of 13% in 2010, Inditex appears to be expanding its store presence targeting global scalability with another 460-500 stores expected to open in 2011. b. Where on Statement of Cash Flows can one find information about the cash necessary to open new outlets? From the Statement of Cash Flows, capital expenditure are the funds used by a company to acquire or upgrade physical long term assets such as equipment or building. We can see that capital expenditure increased from €510 to €754 million from 2009 to 2010. Hence with an expected capital expenditure of €800 million in 2011, we can conclude that CAPEX is used to open new stores and invest in......

Inditex Corporation

...had expanded beyond Spain and Europe at large. Though Inditex had undertaken CSR Initiatives before, most of the Initiatives were a knee-Jerk reaction at best. As Inditex expanded globally, it was grappling with close to 1800 External Suppliers, with little or no oversight/control over the working condition of the people under these many suppliers. Being a global player in retail now, it was imperative to come up with a CSR Initiative which was interwoven with the Company’s Corporate Policy. This Served 2 purposes: 1. As a profit making Organisation the initiatives undertaken to improve labour, hygiene,health and social condition would make the Supplier and the supply chain seamless and in the long run delivery tangible benefits(translates to lower cost and better quality of work force and hence the supplier can deliver better value) 2. These CSR Initiatives also would deliver Intangible Benefits in the form of extended cooperation from the local community, enhanced Corporate Image among stake holders, support from the local government and better brand value from well informed customers of Inditex. According to Porter, Four major justifications for CSR initiatives are: • Moral Obligation • Reputation Out-in Linkages • License to Operate • Sustainability Inside-out Linkages Strategic Importance of Morocco (Tangier) to Inditex: 1.

Inditex - the Economist Article

...A global brand needs a prominent shop window. On March 15th Inditex opened a huge outlet on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, having bought the store for $324m last year. (Even after adjusting for inflation, that is more than the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, in which America bought all or part of 15 states.) The aim is not merely to sell to New Yorkers, but to convince shoppers everywhere that Zara is hip. Inditex's formula has not worked everywhere. Zara has struggled in America, for instance. It sells trendy cuts and slim fits. Outside the biggest cities, Americans have long preferred classic, roomier clothes (though this may be changing). Chinese office ladies like Zara's slim fits more, says Fraser Ramzan of Nomura, a bank. Iria Campos, a Zara designer, says Chinese women choose pastels to flatter their pale skin rather than the stronger colours Europeans prefer; but otherwise they have surprisingly similar tastes. Still, China will not be easy. Zara's clothes are far pricier than local rivals', whereas in Europe they are relatively cheap. And because of the distance from La Coruña, Zara must charge more in absolute terms as well. So it has to convince Chinese shoppers that it is luxurious enough to justify the price tag. Its Chinese stores are packed, but its success is more fragile in China than in Europe, says Luca Solca of CA Cheuvreux Research in Paris. It must watch the quality of its products. And expect hurdles. Last year China's consumer watchdog attacked Zara......
