Alpha Mills Case

...to Alpha Mills problems. 2. Analyze. Chapter 1: A market economy is defined as market where supply and demand are variables that are controlled by price changes. Alpha Mills operates in what seems to be a market economy as they are in competition with other companies. This is a key factor in Alpha Mills poor returns because other companies were entering this economy and over supplying therefore demand and price decreased. Making this industry less profitable due to the marketplace in which they operated within. Demand is the amount of a product that customers are willing to purchase at different prices Supply is the amount of a product that producers are willing to produce at different prices Alpha Mills was in an industry that was originally not overwhelmed with suppliers but was also in high demand. As time went on Alpha Mills succeeded due to high demand in this market. The demand was what caused the action of over supply to occur. When the demand for this product was high several other parties entered in this market. This caused the supply to go up and the prices fell. This oversupply lead to regular losses for Alpha Mills because the profit margin had greatly decreases. The problem was not with Alpha Mills employees, management and their equipment but the market. The problem was external not internally from inside the company. “We are doing nothing wrong, and have met all of our efficiency targets.

General Mills Case Study

...General Mills Inc.—Understanding Financial Statements Teaching Notes: This is the first case we use in our course and it sets the tone. We find that using a company well-known to students piques their interest and gets the course off to a good start. The purpose of the case is to gain familiarity with financial statements and to begin to think about how financial statements reflect economic events and financial performance. Some students need to be reminded that the point of the exercise is not to perform a comprehensive analysis of the company. At this point, most students do not have the required skills. Rather, the goal is one of discovery. Many students find that they understand a lot more of the information in the financials than they thought they would. Others find that the vocabulary bogs them down. They need to be encouraged to learn the language of business. A productive exercise is to have students jot down a few (3-5) items they find puzzling in the financial statements. Then, on the last day of class, have the students refer back to their list. Typically, they understand everything they had on their day-one list. This provides tangible evidence of the value of the course because most students are pleasantly surprised at how much they have learned. The case probes the three basic statements as well as the two opinions issued by the firms’ auditors. This provides the opportunity to introduce the notions of corporate governance and ethics. The case includes basic......

Case Study 3: Malia Mills Swimwear

... which means that Malia Mills is supporting the community. They are also given great service such as bottled water during their visit and associates who are there to assist them in finding the perfect suit. 3. I would say that her previous attempt at selling wholesale through department stores was not cost effective, especially since it wasn’t in line with her core mission. I feel that if she were to continue with this form of advertisement, she would not have the amount of loyal customers as she does now because there would not be as much uniqueness to separate her brand from other competitors. I think that Malia Mills should turn to word of mouth instead in order to promote her products. 4. Malia Mills is trying to create an environment of comfort for her customers. This is important because it aligns with her overall mission and vision of her brand. She wants women to feel comfortable in their own skin, which reflects in the way she creates her store environment. 5. Malia Mills can explore different types of media such as fashion magazines or use celebrities to promote her swimwear line. I feel that these types of sales venues would benefit her brand. 6. The Polaroid Project was a successful promotional venture because she used real women to promote her products. It is a form of uniqueness and differentiation since many competitors use professional models to showcase their products. I think women appreciated the fact that Malia Mills is creating for real......

Aurora Textile Company Case

...Aurora Textile Company Case Abstract In January 2003, Michael Pogonowski, the chief financial officer of Aurora Textile Company, was questioning whether the company should install a new ring-spinning machine, the Zinser 351, in the Hunter production facility. This new machine has ability to produce a finer-quality yarn that would be used for higher-quality and higher-margin products. In deciding whether or not to invest this new machine, NPV and the payback period are critical factors. Firstly, we need to forecast the cash flows that the Zinser 351 will generate in the future. After calculation, the ten-year NPV will be $3, 172,582. Secondly, we use the payback period to analyze the acceptance of this project. Based on this analysis, Aurora Textile Company should invest this new machine because of the positive NPV and relatively small payback period, which we will analyze in the following discussion. Analysis In this analysis, we determined that NPV is the critical factor determining whether the company should invest or reject that new project. Secondly, we established that the payback period is another contributing force in our decision. The payback period tells us whether we can earn some money in the set period of time but this model has a few drawbacks, such as ignoring timing of cash flows and the positive cash flow after the payback period. In both calculations, NPV and payback period, we forecasted future cash flows. Cash flow from investing in the......

Ashraf Silk and Textile Mills

...Introduction: This case study is based on Ashraf Silk and General Mills (ASGM). The case study mainly focuses on how the organization is run and its major operations. The most crucial part of the case study is based on the employees at ASGM and the case will be analyzed in relation to the employees and their employers. The case study is based on a case from Gujranwala where approximately 10,000 weavers were working in over 1,000 textile weaving plants. The market of weaving industry was highly competitive and there was always a fear of losing weavers because their demand was greater than the supply, and hence the labour turnover rate in the weaving industry was very high. In ASGM, on average every two out of twelve weavers left every month according to an estimate by Fawad. This figure was particularly better than what it was in other organizations since ASGM had a good reputation with regards to weaver retention. This particular information will help in identifying the core issues that existed within the organization and the industry as a whole and then a solution will be devised keeping in consideration these on-ground realities such as labour turn-over rate and the need for keeping the employees motivated in the long run. The Core Issues: Considering the fact that the weaving industry was very competitive, keeping weavers motivated so that they did not leave made for an important part of every weaving organization‟s manager or head including ASGM. The weavers knew that......

...1. Malia Mill’s has a product line that appeals all women. No matter what size or shape you are, Malia Mill has something for ever women. This company uses real women to model and advertise there product, instead of hiring professional models. 2. Malia Mill’s customers are willing to pay a high price for swimwear because they are buying quality in the product. Their swimwear is also manufactured in New York City and this shows that Malia Mill is supporting employment within the community. The company give great customer service, for example, they give their customers bottled water during meeting with their clients when assisting in finding a swimsuit. 3. In order to be cost effective, I would suggest that the company stay out of wholesale and focus on the one on one attention they give their customers. By continuing this method, the company will continue to gain customers and increase their loyal customers. The company has a competitive advantage over other competitors because they give their customer the attention they need in order to find the perfect swimsuit, unlike looking for one at a department store. Malia Mill should consider getting more involved with social media and sharing their customer’s testimonials. 4. The environment Malia Mill is trying to create in her stores is, a store where women can be comfortable trying and buying swimwear. The companies mission and vision for the brand is to create a place where women can come in and shop for swimwear......

Malia Mills Case Study

...features of Malia Mills’ product. The unique feature of Malia Mill’s product is that they come in all different sizes. The offer swimsuits that come in all different styles to appeal to women of all sizes, shapes and age. The quality of the products is also very high and the materials that they use are also of quality. The unique quality is to “change the way women felt about themselves” 2. Malia Mills Swimwear is not inexpensive. Why do you think customers are willing to pay a premium for her suits? I think that the customers are willing to pay premium for her suits because they are of great quality. The business stands true to their brand, and not many companies are able to follow that. The business is looking for what’s best for their customers, and their customers see that. They also offer styles that people are extremely satisfied with, and that cater to the different body types that people of all ages have. 3. The case mentions that Malia Mills Swimwear is currently experimenting with paid advertising. If you were in charge of marketing for the company, how would you assess whether or not it was cost effective to continue purchasing advertising? I think the best way to test out if paid advertising is working or not is through trial and error. Although this seems like a risky way of trying it out, the best way to see customer response is through trial and error. If the paid advertising isn’t working, this may not be a route that Malia Mills should......
