SECTION - IIQ6) Case study (enclosed herewith*) A Healthy Dose of Success* (21 Marks] Muhammad Majeed represents a typical Indian who has created success out of sheer hard work and commitment through his education and expertise. At the age of 23 years, Majeed, after graduating in pharmacy from Kerala University, went to pursue higher studies in the US. He completed his masters and Ph D in industrial
  18. 18. chemistry. Armed with high qualifications, he became a research pharmacist and eventually, as most expatriate Indians do, set up his own company, Sabinsa Corporation. Experiencing difficulties with the long drawn drug approval process of the US Food and Drug Administration and his own dwindling savings, Majeed focussed on ayurvedic products based on natural extracts. He returned to India in .1991 (incidentally, the year when liberalisation started in India) and set up Sami Chemicals and Extracts Ltd, later renamed as Sami Labs Ltd (SLL), at Bangalore. SLL has over three dozen products, and seven US patents. There are 25 European and other country patents pending approval. SLL has four manufacturing units all based in Karnataka. The sales is Rs 44.5 crore and the profit-after-tax is Rs. 5.89 crore. It has pioneered specialised products based on Indian herbal extracts relying on the principles of ayurveda. The major thrust is on remedies for cholesterol control, fat reduction, and weight management. As against several Indian companies exporting raw herbs, SLL specialises in value- addition through extractions. The result is encouraging: SLL s products typically fetch an export price that is more than double the price of-raw herbs. . SLL thinks of its business as "manufacturing and selling traditional standardised extracts and nutritional and pharmaceutical fine chemicals". Sabinsa, its US-based company, secures contracts from the lIS companies to manufacture certain chemicals in Indi~. Its business plans are quite ambitious. Setting up a product management team, assisting farmers in cultivation of pharmaceutically useful herbs, and international collaborations for developing research-based intellectual property and its commercialisation are some of the strategic actions on the anvil.

What could a Lloyds do with a meagre annualcapacity of making six lakh tonnes of HR coils while SAIL sold over 1,600 lakhtonnes in the same time? Should Lloyds follow the market leader or adopt its ownunique approach to its business strategy? It is in the context of such questions thatLloyds attention came to rest on the manufacturing process.Almost all steel producers adopt the blast furnace technology. In this, the processstarts with a clear differentia~ion among the ultimate products to be manufactured.So, manufacturing batch size has to be large enough to take up customised orders.The raw material, iron ore, has to pass through several complex stages ofmanufacturing.Lloyds looked for an alternative technology that could suit its requirements. Thesolution lay in the Electric Arc Furnace technology where the unique feature wasthat initial manufacturing stages need not differentiate among different products.Such a differentiation came at a much later stage. Translated into a businessproposition; what it meatn was that Lloyds could operate with a much smaller batchsize of, say, 100 tonnes and deliver quickly. For instance, a 1,000-tonnes small orderof specialised product custom-made to buyers specification could be delivered in aslittle as 15 days. Such a quick delivery schedule would not be possible for a large,integrated steel manufacturer. .In this manner, analogous to small gunboats that
  25. 25. could effectively torpedo a large, slow-moving ship, Lloyds carved out a niche in thehighly competitive steel market.QuestionComment on the nature of the business strategy. of Lloyds.

Before 1960s, ties were mostly imported from France, England, Italy and a couple of other countries. It was Zodiac which gave the impetus to domestic tie industry in the mid sixties. This was followed by a Delhi-based small company-Zorex Tie Manufacturing (P) Ltd., the ties were sold under the brand Zorex, which later took the name Bentlay. Zorex specializes only in neckwear, whereas other companies treat this segment as an additional item in Menswear market. Today, the tie market in flooded with a number of brands. Bentlay is facing a stiff competition from the companies of Korea, Japan and China. There is a shift from domestic to foreign brands. This trend fuelled by liberalization of imports is expected to gain further momentum in the years to come. Apart from this the domestic producers have also been hit by the onslaught of denim wear and casual dressing, thus reducing usage of ties. Bentlay is thinking seriously sponsor a comprehensive study on necktie market to study its customer profile, its image vis-a-vis other domestic & foreign brands and the segmentation pattern of tie market.

  40. 40. US based Carnegie Mellon University has decided to withdraw its proposal to setup a mammoth Rs.l ,000 crore next generation network called Sankhya Vahini incollaboration with the Indian government, alleging red tape, according to sources.The decision to withdraw from the controversial project which held the promise torevolutionize data transmission, internet usage inIndia was conveyed on behalf of Carnegie Mellon University by Dr V S Arunachalam,president ofLunet (Which was set up for the project at Carnegie Mellon), to telecomsecretary Shyamal Ghosh. He has also informed Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayeeof this development.In his communication to Ghosh, Arunachalam said: "Even almost two years afterthe cabinet approval, the project has not been sanctioned. Two years in. information technology is considered a lifetime. Similar projects in other parts ofthe world that were not even on the drawing board when we made our originalproposal are now in commercial operation and are being upgraded to higherperformance levels".Mr. Arunachalam said that Lunet, the university, and the potential investors forthis project were now reluctant to invest any more resources in this project.According to Mr. Arunachalam, "the so called public interest litigation against theproject and the continuing adjournments in the court for more than a year, oftenbecause of the absence of the governments lawyer, have not encouraged us either".He said the board (university) has also noted that DoT has not forwarded in itscollaboration with Lunet in spite of the courts observation that they had not granteda stay order and that there was nothing binding against the government goingahead with the project. He finally added that, "we, therefore, very much regret toinform you of our decision to withdraw".Sankhya Vahini was to be the next generation data network offering dramaticallyhigher bandwidths for its users. In the first 12 months, it was to commissionapproximately 10,000 km of high speed network with bandwidth extending between2.5 and 40 billion bits per, second, which .would have made it the largestbandwidth of any data network in the world. The proposed capital for the venturewas to. be Rs.l,OOO crores, the equity to be shared among the participants in aratio would have ensured that the company would have an Indian majority but notbe a public sector company.DoT/DTs equity (45%) was to be in the form of a pair of optical fibers from theexisting DoT/DTS optical fiber cables in the country as well as other existinginfrastructure needed for this project, and the cash involved. Lunets equity (49 percent) was to be in the form of latest equipment and systems needed for building thenationwide network, technologies and cash. Other partners included IndianInstitute of Science, Indian Institutes of Technology (lVlumbai and Chennai) and lITHyderabad and the Ministry of Information Technology.Questions:1) What according to you are the possible reasons for disruption of this project? 2) Red tapism is a problem often faced by foreign MNCs, what precautions should they adopt to avoid such situations? 3) What policy changes should the Indian government adopt to encourage FDI especially in the technology sector?
