Recommendations To Atlas Electrica Case

1734 words - 7 pages

Atlas Eléctrica recommendation:

External strategy:

1) Buy La Indeca and the store chain La Curacao:
- Why: To keep market shares and leadership in Central America, deeper market coverage.
- How: Take long-term loans
- Alternative: It will kill the company if other competitors buy La Indeca (Mabe, Whirlpool, LG, Samsung in Mexico)–they would take market shares from Atlas Eléctrica and by the time wipe out the company from Central America where Atlas Eléctrica has the biggest market shares.

2) Focus on Central America:
- Why: to keep the market leadership in that region –deeper coverage to its natural market. –It will strengthen the company - and prepare it to expand or to win market shares in The Caribbean and South America. First it must strengthen its financial situation in order to have the resources to expand in other regions (it will need to put emphasis on marketing and to develop products that correspond to customer needs in the other regions –especially regarding stoves).

3) Keep the focus strategy:
Why: Its cheaper to keep the old customers than finding new ones!
The middle-income segment is the largest consumer group and the brand names are aimed at this particular target group, so Atlas Eléctrica should keep focusing on this segment until the market is ready for more product lines.
Refrigerators and stoves are the main product lines in which Atlas Eléctrica has its core competences. They are also working fine due to the production system.
The market is not ready yet for more product lines even though the economy is growing because the purchasing power is not that strong compared with the ones in South America. Therefore there is not yet profit to gain by diversifying the products. Another reason not to diversify the products is that in that case Atlas would need to invest in more production systems in order to bring down production costs and to be more efficient. This the company cannot afford at the moment.

How: Be up to date with the market needs and keep on developing the product lines in order to be up front with the newest products. Keep the focus also on customer guarantee. Improve the distribution of products (By acquisitioning La Indeca the company can use the retail-store chain La Curacao to distribute its products in order to reach its target group. Keeping the Cetron brand for refrigerators owned by La Indeca the company would be able to gain market shares in the middle-income segment which is La Indecas target group. It is important that it takes market characteristics in Mexico and Guatemala into account in its product lines as these countries are different from the rest of Central America.

4) Gaining market shares -South America/Caribbean:
- When: Financial situation is strengthened from profitable markets in Central America.
- How: It should try to gain more market shares in countries where it is already
operating by putting more emphasis on...
