  10. 10. Market Analysis Summary<br /> Indian automobile industry witnessed a growth of 16.04% in 3-wheeler segment. Indian 3-wheeler segment includes a range of vehicles such as auto rickshaws, mini tempos, etc.In India, there are 6 local and multinational companies making 3-wheelers. Bajaj Auto is the leader in 3-wheeler manufacturing. It has also dominated the global arena after Piaggio.<br />
  11. 11. Production<br />Production During financial year 2005-06, 3-wheeler production showed a growth of 16.02% over the preceding year. 3-wheelers have been showing an upward production trend. At present, there are more than 4.34 lakhs 3 wheelers manufactured in Indian Automobile Sector<br />

  13. 13. Chennai Market<br />From the above statistics we can make out that there is enormous demand for the 3 wheeler market in India and the same can be interpretated for the Chennai region as well. Another important point to be noted is that since Shollinganallurisn't such a highly developed place and many people who are living here, make their source of living either by Farming, Drivers etc and this is a great potential for the 3 wheeler market as these category of people generally use this kind of vehicle.<br />
  14. 14. Market Segmentation<br /> Local residents (People living within a locality of 25 Kms from the showroom) would be the people who will be targeted and people from Pondicherry are also expected to come to Mato-Auto as there isnt a showroom in Pondi with all the Brands under one roof.<br />
  15. 15. Strategy and Implementation Summary<br />Competitive Edge: Mato-Auto’s competitive edge lies in the vision of its Owner, who understand better than many of their rivals that a visit does not just include a customer to but a 3 wheeler, it includes the entire service experience<br />Positioning Statement: It is the express purpose of Mato-Auto to become the local leader in quality and service experience of all the small Dealerships firms within the Chennai Circle while maintaining a low cost plan.<br />
  16. 16. Marketing Strategies<br /> The company has a modest program of marketing its services that include the following:<br />Flyers.<br />Direct mailers.<br />Discounts to regular Customers.<br />Newspaper ads.<br />Yellow pages.<br />Referrals through other local businesses.<br />
  17. 17. Promotion Strategy<br />The promotion strategy will take the form of flyers, direct mailers, price discounts, and advertisements in newspapers and yellow pages. Mato-Auto will also make its presence felt in Micro Blogging sites like Twitter. Mato-Auto does not desire to spend a large amount on marketing until the firm is ready to expand either into new facilities or open up new ones. It is estimated this will occur sometime after 2 years<br />
  18. 18. Pricing Strategy<br />Mato-Auto exists in a purely competitive environment where each firm must be a price taker. In other words, the firm has no ability to affect the market price of its services, regardless of how many automobiles sells. In this case, therefore, marginal revenue (the revenue incurred by producing or servicing one more unit) is Just 10% to the price charged. Furthermore, because the demand curve is essentially horizontal, Mato-Auto can sell automobiles at total capacity without effecting the price. <br />
  19. 19. Sales Forecast<br />Since the 3 Wheeler industry is, operationally, a sales-shop environment, it is somewhat difficult to estimate sales.From our statistics earlier we have come to a consensus that there will be atleat 2 vehicles sold on a day to day basis and given that 10% is the margin the manufacturers give for the Dealers, it would mean that there would be a profit of Rs 10,000 per Vehicle. For the most part, sales for an automobile dealership are steady year round and reflect little seasonality.<br />
  20. 20. Management Summary<br />Mishaal worked with McKinsey & Company for 6 years before which he was associated with TVS Motors as the Sales Manager. Since that time, he has worked for a variety of projects for TVS in getting the main project under the TV head of overlooking the sales of 2 Wheelers in Chennai Region and has numerous certificates in achieving Targets. During the past two years Mr. Mishaal has attended a PGPM correspondence course on the Sales Module which is an added advantage<br />Mishaal had attended IIT Madras where he did his B-Tech in 1990’s. In anticipation of Mato-Auto’s business needs, Mr. Mishaal is taking night classes at Symbiosis Academy in marketing.<br />
  21. 21. Financial Plan<br />As said earlier the finance will be taken care of for the initial investment in the following ways:<br />The owner Mishaal contributing Rs 25,80,000<br />Taking a loan from HDFC Bank for Rs 50,00,000 in order to purchase the stock necessary to run the showroom<br />Cash Flow projected for the initial year of operations is given below:<br />
  22. 22. Projected Income Statement<br />
  23. 23. Summary<br />Mato-Auto will be a huge busines enterprise at the end of the 3rd year and it will have a great market to cater to given the rate at which the market is growing. Since its a showroom having all the brands under the 3 wheeler category and this will be a huge chance for the business to develop in a place like Shollinganallur.<br />
