  4. 4. 2. Situation at our markets The brewery was successful to maintenance positions and to increase sale in the local area. The beer was supplied into Norma chain. The main exportable country was Germany (74.6% of the whole export), Sweden (11.4% of the whole export) and France (9.7% of the whole export).

In 2009 the company was successful to maintenance positions in chain supermarkets such as Penny Market, COOP Centrum, Ahold, Plus Discount, Norma, Billa and Kaufland.2.1 Our customers Prevailing customers are: local people (in particular men between 30 and 60), who buy the the beer in the company shop, other small shops, fairs and other events chain supermarkets foreign customers 4
  5. 5. 2.2 SWOT analysis [S] Strengts [W] Weakness - long tradition (116 years) - Seasonal annual production of beer (since - expori experience 1990 without a significant increase) - long partnership with Czech multiple - a small percenatge interest on the Czech chain stores market - broad beer portfolio (8 sort) - Net profit in the year 2009 only 401 - longlasting volume production thousand. CZK (500% decrease - literally famous brewery compared to 2007) - innovated production technology - 1 revolving loan and 1 medium-term loan - non foreign capital, 100% domestic - weak promotional activities capital - insufficient monitoring of current trends - well-content and motivated staff and responsing on them - 37 beer awards and evaluations in the last - absence of non-alcoholic beer 10 years - strong know-how - open and friendly to customers, partners and very good Public Relation [O] Opportunities [T] Threats - slowdown of competitive business - price cuts by competitors - depreceation of primary commodities - change in legislation - consumer increase of beer per year - reduce the consumption of beer - modern production technology - new competitors on market2.3 Competition Competition for Nymburk Brewery are big supra-national breweries more than local ones which produce special beer. That´s why Nymburk Brewery focuses on the local consumers, tries to put its products through big supermarket chains in the surroundings and seeks new consumers abroad. Nymburk Brewery introduces now unusual beer flavours for its consumers by implementing new technologies (pasteurized, non-pasteurized beer, lager, dark beer), adding different new flavours made of exotic substances. The brewery leadership constantly follows and evaluates competitors´assortment and price politics. The biggest competitors are big Czech breweries (Pilsen and Budweiser) and international firms producing beer of good quality. 5
  6. 6. 2.4 Marketing research results – outcome The annual beer consumption is 106 liters per person, total 93 mio hl. In Germany, drink beer almost 70% of the population. 54% of Germans drink beer at least several times a week and prefer bottled beer. However, three quarters prefer only one brand and the same number of Germans prefer domestic brands. Imported beer must take, such as traditional manufacturing, labeling, etc.3. German beer market There are about 60 domestic beers brands in Germany. Direct competitors are imported beers, from czech Budvar, Breznak and Pilsner Urquell, from foreign are especially Guinness and Carlsberg. Indirect competitors are domestic beer production in the low/medium price range. 6

  9. 9. 4.2 Distribution We made an analysis and decided that most suitable for distribution will be Gold Bohemia Beer, and Nymburk CAN. We are aware of a wide range of chain stores (Penny Market, COOP, Ahold, Norma, Aldi, Metro, Lidl), The most important question are listing fees – it means extra fees of inclusion product to the offer At the place where the product will be sold (in a particular trade chain) will be located sales support items (leaflets, POS and POP materials). Before selling we will provide training to chain store managers, promotional materials, tasting, samples, support and service. Direct distribution channels (dealers, own beer shop, restaurants) Indirect distribution channels (Penny Market, COOP, Ahold, Norma, Aldi, Metro, Lidl) Beer which is going to be exported is treated by special technologies to longer its shelf life. So the final price is increased. 9
