      • As of June 2008, considering acquiring other 50% for controlling interest (Wall Street Journal)
    • Although many grupos are organized and controlled by the founding family generation after generation, Grupo Modelo has had a different history
    • Although it appears Grupo Modelo has followed this trend of passing of control through generations, it hasn’t
      • Founder had no offspring upon retirement, passed controlling shares to salaried managers
      • “ The founder’s nieces hold the post of president of the board, and his son is now the CEO. This son married the daughter of one of the salaried managers to whom part of the shares had been transferred…” (Hoshino 2003:156)

    • “ To establish the leadership Model in the global beverages and consumer products market”
  • 11.
    • Boasts a 63% share of domestic, export market in Mexico
    • Principal competitors:
      • FEMSA Cerveza (2 nd largest [Tecate, Dos Equis , Sol])
      • FEMSA (Coca-cola, water, juice, other bottled beverage distribution) vs. Grupo Modelo (authorized Nestle water production and distribution, Pellegrino importation, 180 Energy Drink [Made by Anheuser-Busch])
      • SABMiller (Beer [Miller, Miller Light, MGD64], Coca-Cola, other juices/bottled beverages)
  • 12.
    • Strengths
    • Anheuser-Busch gives exclusive right to distribute its products
      • gives Grupo Modelo a knowledgeable, experienced partner in the beer industry
    • Additional alliance with Carlsberg (Denmark)
    • Long, established presence in the market (Advertising slogan in the 1940s : “ Y veinte millones de mexicanos no pueden estar equivocados …”)
    • Large market share
    • Production facilities throughout Mexico
    • Weaknesses
    • Like many grupos , too much company diversification can lead to a loss of core competencies
      • Loss of product quality, loss of focus on what customers actually want
    • Opportunities
    • With significant tourism industry in key locations (Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Puerto Peñasco ), Grupo Modelo can expose/test a product with international customers that come to them
      • They don’t have to take a full risk of expanding operations, marketing, logistics to a new international market with uncertainty
    • Threats
    • Along with this opportunity for new international segments simply coming to them at tourist vacation spots comes the threat that Grupo Modelo will become too comfortable with this advantage and lose international market share
      • They might stop doing their own research and miss out on expansion opportunities they would have otherwise missed
