This is in large part a product of Honda being an industry leader in high fuel efficiency models that propelled it to popularity during times of high gas prices.

SMIC’s decision to use technology blue prints from established players in the market and setting up a billion dollar production facility to achieve large scales of volume, thereby achieving economies of scale, helped it produce rapidly and exponentially expand it’s market share in a year. The revenues rose from $50.3M to $365M from 2002 to 2003, an approximate 500% increase. The other strategy that SMIC seemed to be working on was to establish its supremacy in the256Mbit DRAM market sector. Backed by already established technologies and by staging an average selling price of $4.43 which was below the industry average of $4.58 and approximately $2 lower than the ASP offered by Samsung.

Answer: . The VCs apparently think that Zazzle’s business model is scaleable, meaning that sales will quickly grow, and that as more sales are spread out over the same technological infrastructure, profits will rise.

So far, Ryanair has been able to successfully accomplish many, it not all of these strategies by various means. First of all, the main focus was put on having the lowest fares in Europe. Ryanair has gone the extra mile to introduce its new “lowest price” guarantee where if passengers can find a lower fare from a competitor on any Ryanair city pair, Ryanair will pay the passenger double the difference (Annual Report). There unfortunately have been some customers who have found a lower fare but this let’s the passengers know that Ryanair is committed to being Europe’s cheapest airline. This strategy has ultimately been effective because their revenues increased dramatically from 2006 (1,692,530 euro) to 2007 (2,236,895 euro) (20F).
With Buffet looking for the next “elephant” it looked like he expected PacifiCorp to be his next elephant. The company had a strong market hold and with its hydrothermal, renewable wind power, gas-fired combustion, and geothermal facilities the company had a strong outlook for the “going green” future the world is/was looking towards.

Buffet believes in companies with a high return on equity and low debt. Exhibit 9 shows that PacifiCorp had a large amount of debt compared to other regulated Energy Firms which is why many analysts questioned Buffet’s interest in the company.
