A Strategic Case Analysis of Ice-Fili

...Moshladokombinat N 8. In 1992 it was privatised and registered as a private jointstock company under the name Ice-Fili. Its CEO is Anatoliy Vladimirovich Shamanov.

External Analysis In this part it will be looked at the Russian ice cream industry. Therefore, an industry definition will be given. Its structure will be highlighted and from there on, the threats for Ice-Fili will be examined. 2.1 The Russian ice cream industry In the case of Ice-Fili we deal with the Russian ice cream industry.

Threat of new entrants: MEDIUM TO LOW * Creating a website is cheap, unskilled or old people can set up a little retail business shops fairly easily but E-Retail is a difficult-to-master business. Moreover, since the “technology bubble” burst two years ago, many people are threatened to enter the game. * BUT cost to establish an online retail outlet is high: * Start up capital with long term investors * Maintenance cost of equipment and expertise * Compliance of government regulations on data protection and privacy * The possible use of patents and proprietary resources * Marketing and advertising cost * Technology cost R&D * Distribution cost * By the way, Internet has shown to us that a simple idea well developed can offer extraordinary results, examples such as Facebook.com, Plentyoffish.com, Youtube.com and so forth, these companies have developed their web sites in a short period of time with incredible final results. This can be the proof that a threat of new entries into the market is possible. Threat of substitutes: MEDIUM RISK * The way how e-Retail business works today creates a lot of substitute threats to conventional retailing players. Amazon.com itself started as a substitute of......

Financial Modelling for a Strategic Investment Case

...STRUCTURE OF THE CASE • Promoters start business in 2008 in the name of XYZ Ltd. They manufacture product A, B and C and are in the consumer electronics manufacturing industry. • They pool capital worth Rs 10 crores from personal sources. This is the promoter’s contribution to the business. Equity shares worth 10 crores were issued to promoters, having face value of Rs 10. Shares were issued at par. The founders thus hold 100,00,000 equity shares in the company owning 100% equity in the business. • In 2012, capital worth 30 crores infused by PE. 20 lakh new shares were issued to PE thus diluting the stake of the promoters from 100% to 83.33%, the PE owning the rest 16.67%.The face value of the Equity Shares of the Company is Rs. 10 each and the Issue Price is 15 times the face value of Equity Shares.The shares were valued as a multiple of 5 times the weighted average EPS for last three years i.e. 2010-2012 considering qualitative factors such as diversified business model and high growth prospects based on valuation of company. The weighted average EPS for 2010-12 is 3 (approx). • Thus shares are issued to PE @ Rs150 per share (EPS 3* 5 times*face value of share 10) • PE investment enables company to raise more loans. The capital thus raised, was also used for advertising and brand building thus increasing the net sales of the company by an average of 60% • Company is raising Debt through Secured Loans hypothecated by company assets as well as Unsecured Loans and a......

Strategic Innovation Case 1

...1) Would you have been long or short Blockbuster stock at the time of the case (i.e., late 1990s)? How about Netflix? Why? Before we could answer the first question, status quo of video rental industry (hereinafter referred to as VRI) in late 90s, has to be introduced. In those days, Blockbuster was dominant company in VRI and video games industry, almost on the top of its glory with $ 4,4b total revenues in 1999 and little less than 40% of market share. They operated over 7,000 stores in the US, more than 2,000 stores in another 28 countries. Customers could choose from 2500 movie titles in every Blockbuster branch. Fee for renting the movie was from $ 3 to $ 4. (Shih, Kaufman, & Spinola, 2009; Blockbusters, 1999). On the other hand, in late 90s Netflix was relatively newly established private company. At the end of 1999, they had over one hundred thousand subscribers. Netflix provided only DVD video rental services, based on online ordering (through Netflix web page) by customers and subsequent mail delivery DVDs by the US postal service. Their total revenue was $ 6,6m. Netflix had only one distribution centrum based in Sunnyvale, California. Every DVD in the US was distributed from this place. Netflix new business model (announced at the beginning 2000) was (in 2013 still is) based on monthly subscription.

Strategic Management Case Study Project

...Strategic Management Case Study Project “Mission Statement Evaluation Matrix” Introduction: Perhaps the best way to develop a skill for evaluating mission statements is to study actual missions. There is no one best mission statement for particular organization, so a good judgment is required in evaluating mission statements.

Hsbc Strategic Marketing Plan Case

...would lead to increased marketing expenditures. On the other hand, keeping and increasing customer loyalty and value perception will pay for it. Finally, from the market share prospective, taking into account that the actual market share for the bank is 24% of the market, it gives to HSBC a leadership position. Improving the value perception of our customer, the brand enhancement and loyalty, would help to keep the 24 % market share and attract new customers through the word of mouth. HSBC believes in the customer’s niche and they just need to work on the way to improve the appeal for their credit card program. Strategy number 2: TARGET PROMOTIONS FOR NEW SIGN UP First, from the market share point of view, this is one of the best strategic options with this strategy for HSBC to attract to new customer and increase their market share. Second, it is important to take in consideration that the cost to search for and attract new customer is high and the uncertainty of those new customer is higher than the actual ones. This strategy doesn’t assure a long term improvement of their value perception or a brand loyalty. It is a valuable strategy but it can affect the bank brand, since the bank customer’s perception of them is high and their clients are upper-middle class. Finally, focusing on new clients and leaving their loyal ones behind doesn’t fit with the bank’s mission and objectives. Strategy number 3. CREATE A CREDIT CARD TARGETED TO CERTAIN SEGMENTS OR......

Strategic Management Harley Davidson Case

...My presentation of the analysis of this case would be very specific and to the point. I would relate to certain broad strategy areas and describe them in enough depth to help understand the concept, without going into the complete details. Post analysis of the Harley Davidson turn-around, I see the activities and planning involved by the entire management team, to be somewhat as highlighted below. I would also link these aspects with an (I) Internal and (E) External stakeholder sign, for the purpose of understanding the relationships involved in this re-engineering process. Educate (I+E) -> Create Need (E) -> Supply (E) -> Post-Sales (I+E) -> Promote Loyalty(E) -> Best Practices (E) -> Educate (I+E) Harley Davidson's (HD) entire turnaround effort since 1981 can be bulleted within these critical areas of improvement. More specifically, we could categorize all these above initiatives and more, within three functional areas of priority. Create Demand, Produce Product & Provide Support. Create Demand- a. Branding (E)- The HD leadership embarked on a mission to re-brand their image, and successfully did so with their Ford Truck Initiative and the Diverse Customer Base product positioning. They appealed to a larger population base, than the company had ever done in its history. b. Customer Loyalty (E)- HD had a strong customer base, but with a rapidly ageing customer population the company took some initiatives in developing customer loyalty- to further their......

Costco is one of the innovative wholesalers teamed by very dynamic management team and dedicated, motivated and satisfied workforce with the mission “to continually provide its members the best quality products at the lowest possible prices” (Costco Annual Report 2006).
