Here's What We Do Better
Our client is a mid-sized beverage company based in the United States, specializing in the production and distribution of various non-alcoholic beverages, including soft drinks, juices, and energy drinks. Their target market includes a diverse range of consumers from various age groups and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The client faced several challenges, including difficulty in attracting and retaining customers, high production costs, and stiff competition from larger beverage companies. These challenges resulted in sluggish sales and minimal growth, leading the client to seek our expertise in implementing countertrade mechanisms to overcome their obstacles and stimulate growth.
Our team worked closely with the client to develop and implement a series of countertrade mechanisms, which included the following:
Counter-Purchase Agreements: We facilitated counter-purchase agreements with foreign distributors and retailers, allowing the client to tap into new markets and expand their global presence.
Offset Agreements: We negotiated direct and indirect offset agreements with suppliers in various countries, leading to significant cost reductions and increased competitiveness.
Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) Agreements: We assisted the client in establishing BOT agreements with foreign manufacturers, which enabled the client to expand production capacity and meet increased demand.
Joint Ventures (JVs): We helped the client establish strategic joint ventures with foreign partners, allowing for shared resources, expertise, and access to new markets.
Our team closely monitored and supported the implementation of the selected countertrade mechanisms, ensuring smooth integration and execution. This included identifying potential partners and negotiating agreements, providing guidance on the operational aspects of the arrangements, and regularly reviewing progress to ensure goals were met.
The countertrade mechanisms implemented had a profound impact on our client’s business:
The client’s customer base increased by 300%, as they gained access to new markets in 20 countries through counter-purchase agreements.
Offset agreements led to a 70% reduction in production costs, significantly increasing the client’s competitiveness and profitability.
BOT agreements allowed the client to increase production capacity by 200%, meeting the growing demand for their products.
Joint ventures contributed to a 100% increase in product innovation and a 50% increase in market share, thanks to shared resources and expertise.
By leveraging countertrade mechanisms, our client experienced remarkable growth, transforming their struggling business into a thriving enterprise with a solid competitive edge.
