  16. 16. SWOT Analysis Strengths Opportunities Experience in R and D Fitness hype Branding Technology Management and International Strategy Acquisitions and sponsorships Weakness Threats Missing Sports Segments Actual economic situation Low financial resources compared to rivals High competition and imitation of products
  17. 17. Strength <ul><li>First, the company's financial position is extremely strong. The financial growth of PUMA has been phenomenal. Secondly, Puma is more diversified than the competition </li></ul><ul><li>Puma's brand image stands for quality, the latest technology and prestige. The company has been in business for a longer time than any of the competition, and the company has been able to create favorable brand recognition. </li></ul><ul><li>Puma’s top management is highly marketing oriented, and most of the key personnel come from a marketing background. This is strength in this business, since the industry is market driven instead of product driven. Also, an increase in demand is the expected market trend. </li></ul><ul><li>Puma is a global brand. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Weakness <ul><li>It is that it doesn’t promote much. There are not much of Promotional Activities being done by the company. Not much advertisement is done. Company should look for the same. </li></ul><ul><li>The organization does have a diversified range of sports products.⇒ However, the income of the business is still heavily dependent upon its share of the footwear market. This may leave it vulnerable if for any reason its market share erodes. </li></ul><ul><li>The retail sector is very price sensitive. However, most of its income is derived from selling into retailers. Retailers tend to offer a very similar experience to the consume. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Opportunities <ul><li>The brand is fiercely defended by its owners whom truly believe that Puma is not a fashion brand. </li></ul><ul><li>The business could also be developed internationally, building upon its strong global brand recognition. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, emerging markets such as China and India have a new richer generation of consumers. There are also global marketing events that can be utilized to support the brand such as the World Cup, The Olympics, IPl, and Soccer World Cup. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Threats <ul><li>To keep-up with the competition's penetrating efforts will cost a lot of money and put a lot of pressure on marketing and research and development. Also, the short product life cycles play an important role in the return on investment in a particular product line. Furthermore, weakening markets may be a serious threat. </li></ul><ul><li>Puma is exposed to the international nature of trade. It buys and sells in different currencies and so costs and margins are not stable over long periods of time. Such an exposure could mean that Puma may be manufacturing and/or selling at a loss. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Success Factors <ul><li>Strong presence: sports and lifestyle/fashion market. </li></ul><ul><li>Products meeting market demand. </li></ul><ul><li>High innovative and qualitative products. </li></ul><ul><li>Big distribution network. </li></ul><ul><li>Harnessing resources and experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>Ample knowledge in R & D. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Financial Highlights <ul><li>Financial Reporting: </li></ul><ul><li>PUMA abides by the International Financial Reporting Standards &quot;IFRS&quot;, and reports </li></ul><ul><li>Its earnings on a quarterly basis. </li></ul><ul><li>Business: </li></ul><ul><li>PUMA is engaged in the development and marketing of a broad range of sport and </li></ul><ul><li>lifestyle articles including Footwear, Apparel and Accessories. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Financial Highlights <ul><li>Distribution: </li></ul><ul><li>PUMA distributes its products in more than 130 countries. </li></ul><ul><li>Total Revenue: </li></ul><ul><li>PUMA’s revenue for the fiscal year 2008 was €2,524.2 million. </li></ul>

  25. 25. Future of Puma <ul><li>It aims to be the most desirable Sport lifestyle Company. </li></ul><ul><li>Aims at bolstering its position as one of the few true multi-category brands, and at making effective use of the many opportunities offered by the Sport lifestyle market in all categories and regions. </li></ul><ul><li>It plans to evolve the organization. </li></ul><ul><li>Qualitative growth and a long-term strengthening of brand appeal will be given priority, instead of growth at any cost. </li></ul><ul><li>PUMA plans to evolve the organization through the fostering of unique company values, all compatible with the personality of the brand. The can be best summarized in four words: Passion, Openness, Self-belief and Entrepreneurship. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Passion <ul><li>It is not a business that manufactures and sells soap powder or ballpoint pens or instant coffee. It is a business rooted in the passionate world of sporting endeavor. The history of the brand resonates with the echoes of great athletes and legendary performances, celebrated in stadiums across the globe. PUMA makes products designed to facilitate the individual achievements that evoke the most passionate responses. </li></ul>
  27. 27. Openness <ul><li>Today's marketplace is one of the fastest changing and dynamic on the planet. To respond quickly and effectively in this environment demands a culture of openness, where opinions can be shared without fear of blame and where old wisdom can be questioned without the fear of antagonism. </li></ul><ul><li>In this culture, respect and understanding flourish naturally, team workflows seamlessly, barriers dissolve and a much over-used word, empowerment, takes on real meaning. </li></ul>
  28. 28. Self-Belief <ul><li>Global businesses face new challenges every day. It is the quality of the people in these businesses and their belief in their own abilities that enable these challenges to be overcome. PUMA's recognition of this is reflected in its determination that everyone in the company understands and embraces the company values, as well as benefits from the experience and integrity of their colleagues. Only with self-belief will individuals have the confidence to make things happen, take the tough decisions and realize their ambitions for themselves and, ultimately, the business. </li></ul>
  29. 29. Entrepreneurship <ul><li>Few businesses succeed without great ideas. PUMA has been built on them and needs them to flow relentlessly hour by hour, day by day. This demands a willingness to think outside the box, to zig where others zag and to seek inspiration beyond the more obvious boundaries of our business universe. Such creativity has inspired the PUMA brand strategy. It will also be needed to make it a reality. </li></ul>
