Avon Case Study

...Avon Calls on Foreign Markets Case Study Introduction Avon is a 125 year old beauty product manufacturer, who has for over a century left a mark on millions of people throughout hundreds of countries. Avon is most popular for their direct selling technique in which the company sells products directly to distributors or final consumers rather than to trading companies or other intermediaries in order to achieve greater control over the marketing function and to earn higher profits. While this method has proven to be successful for Avon and has certainly contributed to their longevity in the market, there are still crucial factors imposing on the company’s global presence throughout the world. The case study “Avon Calls on Foreign Markets” shed light on issues related to branding, pricing, promotion, as well as distribution. Throughout this analysis, I have identified the shortcomings of Avon over the decades and have also provided recommendations for moving forward. Global Branding Avon is known for their standardized branding, which allows the company to create a uniform global quality image while saving costs by using uniform ingredients and packaging. While this method may be helpful in increasing sales in Thailand as consumers prefer to buy beauty products made by foreign companies, this may not necessarily always work out to Avon’s advantage. For instance, Daniels et al (2011) reveals several barriers to uniform branding that Avon should most certainly be......

Personal Watercraft Case Study

...Issues, Interests, Institutions and Information Issues According to the case study there multiple and a wide variety of issues involved regarding Personal Watercraft (PWC). One of the issues was the potential for water contamination from the oily residue left in the water by two-stroke engines. In addition to the potential for water pollution, air pollution from emissions was also a concern. There was also another type of pollution that was being raised as an issue, “Noise Pollution”. Homeowners and other groups complained that the noise from PWC degraded the quality of the “natural experience” and was a potential distraction to wildlife. PWC safety was another area of major concern; published studies indicated that the accident rate for Jet Skis was significantly higher than regular motorboats. Interests There were many opposing interests identified in the case study. PWC manufacturers, such as Bombardier, Polaris, Kawasaki, and Yamaha, as well as, PWC buyers and/or potential buyers all had a vested interest in the outcome of the issues and conflicts. Associations such as the Personal Watercraft Industry Association (PWIA) which represented the Manufacturers, and various other associations which represented buyers and users were also key stakeholders. The interests on the other side of the equation, who maintained a contrasting position to the PWC manufacturers and owners, were a multitude of conservation and environmental organizations.

Case Study

...Same wine in Different Bottles Cross-badging,or selling the same car with cosmetic changes under different brand names, has not worked so far in India. This case study looks at In January 2012, Japanese auto major Nissan's Indian subsidiary Nissan Motor India sold 1,855 units of its compact car Micra. The same month French carmaker Renault launched its compact car Pulse in India. In February this year, Micra sales were down to 608 units, while Pulse sold 420 units. Turn to sedans. In August 2012, Nissan's sedan Sunny sold 2,757 units. In September that year Renault launched its sedan, Scala. By February this year Sunny sales had fallen to 1,191 units, while Scala sold 620 units. And guess what? Nissan and Renault are not even competitors. They have been strategic partners since 1999. Micra, Pulse, Sunny and Scala are all products of the Nissan-Renault alliance. Or take German car manufacturer Volkswagen's sedan Vento. It sold 3,474 units in India in October 2011. A month later, carmaker Skoda launched its sedan Rapid. Vento's sales have since fallen to 1,909 by February this year. Once again, Skoda is part of the Volkswagen group - Vento and Rapid are from the same stable. In fact, Micra and Pulse are essentially the same cars, with some cosmetic differences, made in the same factories, but sold under different names. So too are Sunny and Scala, or Vento and Rapid. Welcome to the strategy of crossbadging , or selling the same car under different......

Transaction Services Tax - Pwc

...requires the weighing of positive and negative evidence. For example, consider a company that experiences current operating losses that are attributable to today's economic environment. This presents negative evidence indicating deferred tax assets may not be realized. However, when forecasting its future taxable income, the company projects a return to profitability in 2010 ― an indication of positive evidence. In addition, prior to the economic downturn, the company has historically been profitable. The existence of taxable income in carryback years and future reversals of existing taxable temporary differences are generally matters of fact. However, the PricewaterhouseCoopers 1  Prospect name Proposal title/theme In this case, the operating losses that have most recently occurred would likely carry more weight in the analysis of the need for a valuation allowance than either the historic profitability or the projection of future taxable income. What has recently occurred is generally more verifiable than what may occur in the future, or what has occurred in the more distant past. Tax planning strategies Tax planning strategies may also provide a source of taxable income when deciding whether a valuation allowance is necessary. ASC 740 gives characteristics of tax planning strategies. Specifically, tax planning strategies are: • Actions that an enterprise ordinarily might not take, but would take to prevent an operating loss or tax credit carryforward......

Case Study

...Transformation Series 2015 - Case INNOVATION or INNOVATION PRELUDE Business history has many examples of companies redefining the boundaries of business through break-through innovation, there are also those who made the tragic mistake of missing ‘gamechanging innovations’ in their industry thereby ending up with inexorable commercial disasters. In each case, the disaster occurred, as the Wall Street Journal, points out, “not because of ‘bad’ management, but because they followed the dictates of ‘good’ management. They listened closely to their customers. They carefully studied market trends. They allocated capital to the innovations that promised the largest returns. And in the process, they missed disruptive innovations that opened up new customers and markets for lower-margin, blockbuster products.” The threat of disruption, on many an occasion, isn’t perceived as a threat! The disruptor appears to the incumbent to be doing the incumbent a favor by relieving the incumbent of its ‘least valuable’ customers. In due course, the disruptor moves upstream and relieves the incumbent of its most valuable customers. Seemingly, no industry is spared: steel, computers, telephony, photography, stock markets; the list goes on. Will it be Banks next? Burdened with legacy systems, infrastructure cost and increasingly complex security issues, banks are dealing with a double whammy: grappling with intense regulatory scrutiny as a result of a prior “missteps,” while a generation of......

Pcoab Review of Pwc

...The P.C.A.O.B. review of PwC The Sarbanes-Oxley Act On July 30th, 2002 the 107th Congress of the United States enacted public law 107-204, better known as the Sarbanes-Oxley act. This congressional action was in response to many unscrupulous acts by major corporations which caused investors to lose confidence in the capital markets. The major issues were caused by three main organizations, Enron, WorldCo, and Tyco. Enron, did not accurately record their debt obligations. They also recorded gains on internal sales amongst subsidiaries effectively overstating profits. WorldCom capitalized expenses that violated the Generally Accepted Accoutnign principles skewing creating inflated profits. Tyco’s fraud included providing unapproved loans to executives and then subsequently forgiving these debts without approval from the Board of Directors. The PCAOB Prior to the the enactment of the Sarbanes –Oxley Act the accoutning profession was operating in an era of self-governance. The audit standards had been set by the AICPA. Title I of the Satrbanes-Oxley Act established the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. The PCAOB was created to “to oversee the audit of public companies that are subject to the securities laws, and related matters, in order to protect the interests of investors and further the public interest in the preparation of informative, accurate, and independent audit reports for companies the securities of which are sold to, and held by and for, public......

...CASE 1: MHA Textile Maximum solution length: Three double-spaced pages (see syllabus) Source This case is adapted from a 2005 PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) case distributed by PwC for faculty use in teaching auditing. Case information is drawn from an actual PwC client, but with names and industry identification changed to protect confidentiality. PwC holds rights to the case, but has extended permission for classroom use of the case in higher education. Background Your firm's audit client is MHA Textile Corporation, a publicly traded SEC registrant. Your firm has audited MHA for 15 years, and has established a constructive, professional working relationship with the company. Currently you are auditing a significant wholly owned subsidiary of MHA known as "NYH." The NYH subsidiary manufactures blankets and throws, as well as decorative pillows. MHA and NYH have faced increased competition in recent years from rivals in Asia. In May of 2005, MHA's Board of Directors approved a plan to restructure the company and discontinue unprofitable activities. Among the activities to be closed is the decorative pillow operation of NYH, which is unprofitable and increasingly prone to foreign competition. Additional Facts Due to increased competition over the last decade, MHA has had to implement cost-cutting strategies for all of its operations to remain profitable.

Case Study

...Likert’s scale [18]. This survey result indicates that most companies are currently ignorant of how ITG might be implemented using a formal framework such as COBIT, ITIL, EA etc. Although most managers grasp the importance of ITG practices, managers' and companies' accomplishment levels in bringing about satisfactory ITG practices remain low. This corresponds with our survey findings in the case of Korean companies [22]. Responding to this growing concern over how to implement ITG in order to strengthen strategic alignment, this research sets out to answer the following research questions. I. II. What are the key inhibitors for ITG implementation in Korea? What is the cause and effect relationship between such inhibitors and companies' ITG success? To answer the first research question, we conducted literatures review presented as below, identifying those factors potentially restraining ITG implementation. We then propose a research model particularly to this study that provides independent and dependent variables for ITG implementation in different cases. Answering the second research question, we validate our survey results through rigorous statistical testing, analyzing how ITG success is affected by independent inhibitors in governance implementation. Finally, we highlight our findings, drawing out implications for management and suggesting future directions for research. 1530-1605/08 $25.00 © 2008 IEEE 1 Proceedings of......
