Along with GMCR other roasters would have to double their production as well. In addition to GMCR’s concern about the two-cup model there is a concern that KADs would underprice the Keurig and roasters because they have don’t have an investment in the brewers. In order to design the new Keurig-Cup would cost around $400,000. Roasters would need new packaging lines in order to produce both the K-Cup and the Keurig-Cup which would be just under $60,000 per line. With the five roasters currently with them having only one
Mountain Man’s strong brand awareness motivates consumers to both purchase their lager and follow them to new products. * Weakness * A new product line will spread their thin resources and their financials do not allow them to advertise in the crowded light beer market. * Opportunities * Reach a younger demographic and gain share in on premise locations such as restaurants and bars. Regional revenue growth of the light beer product is steadily increasing by 4% annually. * Threats * Moving to a new product line could hurt the core brand.
Under the pressure coming from large national brewers, MMBC is considering to extend its product line: launch Mountain Man Light to attract a new market segment and remain profitable. Although launching light beer may attract a new market segment and get more exposure for MMBC, MML may “drown” in the sea of large light beer brands and even lose loyal customers from its core brand Lager. The main customers of MMBC are blue collar, middle-to-lower income men over age 45. MMBC is famous for its “toughness”, so the market they serve is traditional baby boomer generations. In general, United States was the largest beer-consuming market in the world with over $75 billion in annual sales in 2005.

The strong branding of MMBC as the everyman’s down-to-earth beer has been instrumental in seeing it through the increased competition brought on by the development of large national brewers, which sealed the fates of many other regional breweries. Yet for all its success, MMBC faces serious challenges due to shifts in consumers’ tastes and preferences. MMBC’s revenue has been shrinking at a rate of 2% year-on-year in its maturing market. The prospect of its continual decline seems likely, as it faces tough competition from new products such as the “light” beer category. The “light” beer has proven itself to be a real threat to MMBC as it has dominated the beer industry and is the only beer category to have consistent growth in market share (see Fig.
Considering the number of cups consumed in offices per year which are approximately 20.8 billion (1,937,000*43*250), making $0.04 profit on every K-Cup will bring 832million profit to Keurig per year (not considering time value of money, tax and etc.). Most importantly, this huge amount of profit is only from office users (only occupy 17% of coffee consumption). Keurig will able to make more profit by expanding its business to food service and households. On the other hand, sales of K-Cups may also able to contribute on balancing the losses in the brewer sales. Q1-4: how attractive is the Keurig system to a typical Office manager?
In FBN’s case, their long-term debt ratios alone are 55.7% and 81.5% in years 12 and 13, respectively (and they’ve incurred interest rate increases); and ROCE in the same two years is 15.6% and 6.4%. Just observing these ratios, managers should have been able to see that the increase in borrowing (faster than sales profits) would greatly decrease the shareholders’ earnings. The Risk Analysis also shows that FBN’s current and quick ratios declined, meaning that they do not have enough resources to pay their debts over the next 12 months.
The price for the barrels averaged at a high of $105 in the first week of May and the price of a gallon in Houston was at a decreasing $3.74 from $3.89 about three weeks ago. The test of economics relating to the cost of resources versus the product isn’t sufficient because even at the highest peak in a month for crude oil, prices were still falling per gallon which leads to the other factor, the number of sellers/ suppliers. Every under construction site lately has been the input of a new gas station. This supports the slow falling price as the market widens with new competition. In the Cypress/Katy area there have been over ten new stations
Natureview Farms uses milk from regular cows who are not treated with an artificial growth hormone (rGBH) and this gives their yogurt a competitive advantage in the market; an average shelf life of 50 days compared to 30 days for its rivals. Though it has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade, Natureview Farms was presented with a difficult situation: find a way to grow revenues by 50% by the end of the fiscal year. This major increase was due to the fact that a venture capitalist firm had to pull out its equity stake in Natureview Farms. Management now needed to replace the lost equity with new investors or prepare itself for acquisition within the next year. Organic food companies were typically valued based on revenue multiples (instead of profit or cash flow), therefore attaining maximum revenue would generate the highest valuation for the company to be purchased at.
Ryan Witt Doug Peterson ENC1101 December 5, 2014 The Soda Ban Act With portion sizes at chain-restaurants skyrocketing 457 percent over the last 20 years, it’s not hard to believe that in 2030 an estimated 42 percent of Americans will be obese. Statistics like this are what began the Soda Ban’s evolution. In the efforts to “help people help themselves by simply saying ‘No.’” as Nadia Arumugam would say, the soda ban restricts or puts a limit on the size drink Americans can purchase at most food franchises. However, will restricting the public of what they desire ultimately control the consumption of sugary beverages? The world can only advance through education, thus the Soda Ban’s restriction on sugary drinks contributed towards a
