YEAR 2010 IN REVIEW
2010 saw the beginning of limited recovery in the global economy after the global financial crisis of 2009. Although consumption and business confidence remained significantly weaker than the pre-crisis levels, it seemed that the various stimuli and recovery programmes initiated by governments were beginning to make their mark. However, record levels of unemployment in Germany as well as the US continued to depress consumer spending and retailers were constrained to seek newer sourcing options to protect and grow margins. The continuation of the anti-dumping duties in 2010 imposed by the EU on footwear imports from China and Vietnam helped drive European business to other sources such as India, Indonesia and some extent Bangladesh. Chinese manufacturers however responded by targeting new export destination in North America and Asia to counter the effects of the duties. Overall we witnessed certain global trends in the footwear industry in 2010, some of which are highlighted below : India’s shoe exports expected to grow (Feb 11, 2010, CLE) According to the Indian Council for Leather Exports (CLE), the country’s leather sector is looking to increase both production and export levels. The CLE says the new target for exports by 2013-14 is $ 7 billion, by which time more than a million jobs are expected to be created within the industry. The Indian government believes exports will be significantly higher than the 2009-10 totals of $ 4.2 billion. It predicts that finished leather exports will rise to $ 1.4 billion, footwear exports will reach $ 3.4 billion, leather garment exports will hit $ 492 million and leather glove exports will total $ 1.8 billion. Wenzhou shoemakers broaden their horizons (Feb 12, 2010) According to a number of shoemakers in Wenzhou, China, footwear exports from the region have fallen in the last couple of years as a result of the EU anti-dumping duties imposed on leather shoes from both China and Vietnam.

However, many have decided to focus on new export destination in North America and Asia in a bid to counter the effects of the duties. Staff shortages affect Vietnam shoe sector (Feb 10, 2010) Vietnam’s leather and footwear manufacturers are concerned by the recent downturn in footwear exports and believe staff shortages are one of the driving factors behind the decline. Many firms in Ho Chi Minh City and southeastern provinces have been facing a real lack of workers, and particularly skilled workers, for many months now. Since the downturn began, many firms have seen their workforce reduced by more than half and many fear the worst is yet to come as production and labour costs continue to rise. Chinese pay Disputes Mirrored Across Region (FT, July 04, 2010)

• • •

Chinese labour unrest is being replicated in south-east Asia where factories that compete with China to supply low-costs goods face walkouts as employees demand better pay and benefits. In Cambodia, workers are poised to stage a three-day strike this month in a dispute over the minimum wage while in Vietnam, thousands of workers at a Taiwanese-owned shoe factory staged and strike demanding higher salaries. The disputes match similar action in China, where growing worker dissatisfaction has led to industrial unrest and higher wages. As a result, foreign factory owners are increasingly moving production from southern and eastern China – long seen as the “workshop of the world” – to the interior and other Asian developing nations. Labour costs in countries such as Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos remain a fraction of those in China. But, while their governments have been jostling to attract foreign manufacturers, unions are keen to protect their members and industrial action is on the rise, together with minimum wages across the region.

India records higher shoe exports (October 06, 2010) Indian leather exports grew 16.3% during the first five months of the 2010 financial year (April-August). The country’s leather exports totaled to $ 1.4 billion compared with $ 1.2 billion during the corresponding period last year. Leather footwear exports rose 16.7% to $ 515.1 million from $ 441.4 million, while nonleather footwear exports grew 9.2% to $ 7.6 million from $ 6.9 million. Vietnamese footwear sector forced to turn orders down (Oct 04, 2010) According to the Vietnam Leather and Footwear Association (LEFASO), footwear manufacturers in the country are struggling to cope with increasing order levels. It claims higher labour costs in China have seen many brands transfer production to Vietnam since the start of the year. During the first nine months of 2010, shoe export revenues have rose 18% to $ 3.7 billion. “In 2010, Vietnam planned to export $ 4.6 to 4.7 billion worth of footwear products, an increase of 13% over 2009”, said LEFASO Chairman Nguyen Duc Thuan. “However, with the current favourable conditions, the export revenue may reach over $ 5 billion”, Thuan said. Reports suggest many shoe makers have had to turn down orders as they simply do not have the extra capacity to fulfill them.

Apex Adelchi Footwear Limited China will need two billion extra pairs of shoes a year, claims CLIA (October 01, 2010)

Annual Report

Footwear consumption in China will double in the coming years, the China Leather Industry Association (CLIA) has predicted. In comments she made at the All China Leather Exhibition in Shanghai at the start of the move, CLIA president, Madam Zhang Shu Hua, said that, although official figures are hard to put together, her organization estimates that Chinese consumers buy an average of 1.5 pairs of shoes each per year. She said that this was likely to double, which means that the global footwear industry will soon have to find a way of supplying China with an extra 2 billion pairs of shoes a year. To give the figure a bit of context, this is ten times the total number of shoes produced in Italy in 2009. Therefore, rising costs in South China along with labour shortages and capacity constraints in Vietnam and increased shift to India and general labour and material costs increases were the predominant trends in 2010. With wage inflation in sourcing countries and rising raw materials costs, retailers needed to optimize the efficiency of their supply chain to keep their level of margins without increasing prices to the consumers. A growing number of major retailers are also working on reducing the environmental footprint of their whole supply chain & products, either being pushed by regulation or not. Manufacturers in Asia know they have to raise their games when it comes t sustainability if they want to keep supplying their o products to clients in Europe & USA. In the future environmental credentials may also be a major criteria for retailer to choosing their suppliers. Importance of proximity is increasing due to more awareness of climate change & environmental impact of transport & shipping and as companies look how to reduce their lead times.

The continuous decline of the Euro in 2010 adversely impacted our revenues and profits as the currency continued to slide due to weaknesses in the EU economy. “Bangladesh Bank is concerned with the continuous decline of the Euro, as really 15% of the central bank’s $ 10 billion foreign exchange reserve is invested in the tumbling European Currency, Bangladesh Bank Officials said. We are very concerned. We hope the European Union and International Monetary Fund will come forward to save the Euro “said an official of the Foreign Exchange Reserve & Treasury Management Department of the Bangladesh Bank” -- The Daily Star, May 23, 2010. Unfortunately the problems for the Euro were exacerbated by the new crisis that emerged in Greece in 2010 and the weakness of the Euro continued to affect the revenue and profitability of our company in Taka terms.

Annual Report

There has been a significant build up of Inventories in 2010 compared to 2009, because : a) 2009 saw record collapse of almost all raw material prices such as raw hides, leather, adhesives & TPR granules for outsoles. From the second half of 2010 we began to see rising raw material prices especially in raw hides, and as a result we booked forward contracts to try and minimize cost increases. b) 2010 we increased our number of stores both at retail and whole sale, significantly, and as a result had to hold a much higher level of finished shoes as inventory.

l

Trade Debtors increased by Tk. 172 million mainly due to typically high December shipments, export bills for which were receivable as of 31 December. All receivables were collected within end February 2011. Advance Deposits & Prepayments increased by Tk. 205 million mainly because of significant increase of Goods in Transit against L/C and L/C Margins totaling Tk. 175 million. These were due to stock build up of materials post June 2010 as explained under inventories previously. Total working capital facilities increased by Tk. 433 million with the major increases coming from new facilities for local sales and increased LTR & PAD facilities utilized for inventory build up. Sundry Creditors increased by Tk. 715 million with the major components being - Suppliers, contractors and others increased by Tk. 329 million (mainly raw hide suppliers) - Outstanding expenses increased by Tk. 262 million (mainly for December overhead expenses & provisions) Other Operating Expenses Increased by Tk. 214 million in 2010 due to mainly: - Staff costs for new Outlets & annual increment increased by Tk. 20.3 million - Store operating expenses increased by Tk. 26.5 million - Export Promotion expenses increased by Tk. 03.2 million - Advertisement expenses increased by Tk. 33.0 million - VAT on Shop rentals Tk. 34.2 million - Depreciation increased by Tk. 66.9 million Bank Interest & Charges

In 2009 we incurred Tk. 333.50 million financial expenses on total financing of Tk. 1 ,417.40 million approximately 23.53%. In 2010 we incurred Tk. 276.60 million financial expenses on total financing of Tk. 1850.50 million approximately 14.95%. This is remarkable and mainly due to the first off shore to on shore Euro denominated facility arranged by RSA Capital that enabled us to borrow at premium over EURIBOR interest rates. This significantly reduced our average cost of capital.

INVENTORIES
There has been an increase in inventory by Tk. 896 million compared to 2009. This is mainly due to higher level of inventory required to meet increased local sales demand and to maintain stock availability in all outlets throughout the country. Stock of leather has gone up by Tk. 5 million compared to December 2009. The increase is also reflected due to higher level of in-house production of outsoles which required higher inventory of TPR raw material. Finished shoe inventory has increased by Tk. 560 million to maintain minimum stock level in an increased number of retail outlets. Overall the closing inventory in 2010 was 117 days of sales as compared to 84 days of sales in 2009.

The Board of Directors are pleased to report to you that for the year 2010, a cash dividend of Tk. 40/per share of Tk. 100/- each has been recommended, and after your approval in this Annual General Meeting will be paid to the shareholders.

CSR
AAFL have a Board level committee on CSR that has an annual budget for CSR activity and working in areas of education especially vocational training and healthcare. I 2010 AAFL continued its program n using its factory premises to train fresh individuals as skilled sewing operators and subsequent recruitment by the industry. AAFL is a regular contributor to support education in schools and madrasas, Knowledge centers, DU Alumni Association, IBA, Chittagong University. Also as part of the celebration of 20 years of operations, AAFL launched a yearlong medical awareness campaign for its workers including free medical advise and medicines where required.

FUTURE l The future holds exciting opportunities for AAFL. The relocation of manufacturing out of China and the declining capacity in China for footwear production for export, is driving buyers to look towards new sources such as Bangladesh. The arrival of major shoe manufacturers in Bangladesh to set up manufacturing facilities here, is already attracting backward linkage factories such as shoe lasts and PU soles. These will help reduce costs and lead times for the industry overall. It will also lead to the footwear industry in Bangladesh achieving the critical mass that is essential to attract more major shoe buyers to Bangladesh. The strong winter in Europe and North America in 2010 led to very strong retail sales especially of boots and a lot of the excess inventory that had piled up in retail has been cleared. So buyers will be looking to replenish inventory levels which may lead to stronger sales. However the increased demand from existing clients as well as the arrival of new buyers means that our capacity utilization is reaching maximum levels. If we are not able to ramp up capacity soon, we may have to turn away orders which could limit our growth. There has been a complete turnaround from finished leather prices in 2009 which were at record low levels to r ecord high levels in 2011. Price of cowhides in the domestic market has almost doubled in 2011 from 2009. Therefore there is a huge increase in the cost of finished leather both locally and foreign, and it is not possible to pass on the total increase to finished product prices.

Similarly the prices of TPR granules, which are directly related to petroleum prices are showing an increase of almost 40% from 2010 January levels already. 2011 has also seen the emergence of inflationary pressures as a global phenomenon. Skyrocketing petroleum costs as well as cost increases in almost all major import commodities has raised inflation in Bangladesh and the central bank has responded with a tightened monetary stance. Recently, the lending rate caps in Bangladesh have been withdrawn and already banks have raised their prime lending rates by at least 1%. So cost of capital has increased and there is a tightening of credit. Chittagong port turnaround time has increased again and buyers are already expressing concern about the knock on effects on lead times for orders. The devastating earthquake in Japan will definitely impact the overall footwear exports of Bangladesh since it is the single largest destination for most Bangladeshi footwear exporters. In what is being called the biggest economic crisis in Japan since WW II, consumer spending & confidence will probably be depressed in Japan at least in the year ahead. Our sales in the local market continued to grow but we need to develop better product offerings in ladies & children’s segments to accelerate growth. Rising real estate costs and more price sensitivity in high volume segments need also to be managed more efficiently to protect profitability. Compliance and environmental pressures will grow every passing day and we need to continuously invest and train to be able to be a supplier of choice for major retailers. Last, but not least, the power situation for us has not shown any improvement in 2010. Total expenses for purchase of diesel for standby generator alone was Tk. 46.3 million in 2010 against Tk. 24.8 million in 2009. We hope that the power supply situation will improve in the second half of 2011 as these extra costs are adversely affecting profitability.

l

l l

In conclusion, AAFL and Bangladesh footwear industry have a remarkable opportunity to benefit from the partial relocation of footwear production from China. In fact the China Leather Industry Association has predicted that footwear consumption in China will double in the coming years. The global footwear industry will soon have to figure out a way of supplying China with an extra 2 billion pair of shoes a year (Footwear news , Oct 01, 2010). So increased demand from new markets such as China and India as well as recovering demand from traditional markets such as Europe and North America offer a window of opportunity for countries like Bangladesh. If we can scale up capacity, improve skills and efficiency and overcome the challenges of rising raw material prices, increased cost of capital and power shortage, AAFL can continue its trajectory of growth.

Advertising: Advertising is the process through which a company draws attention of the members of public about its products and services by communicating it to them through advertisements which are communicated through various sources of medium like TV, Radio, news paper and leaflets. The main disadvantage of advertising is it involves high costs (Bertrand et al, 2010). Public Relation: Public relation is the process through which a company communicates the positive messages about itself and its services through press releases and events that are conducted by the company. The main disadvantages of public relation are that designing and implementing a public relation campaign is a complex process and the success of the process is hard to measure (Karimi, 2013).

... and Marketing a Business BUS 100 March 3, 2013 Creating, Financing, and Marketing a Business A partnership is a voluntary agreement under which two or more people act as co-owners of a business for profit (Kelly & McGowen, 2012, p. 76). There are some advantages of this form of agreement whereas each partner has the right to participate in the company’s management and share in profits and losses, but also has unlimited liability for any debts the company incurs. A partnership is easier to establish compared to a corporation. Each partner will share start-up cost, and reciprocate support and motivation. Partnership earnings that pass through the business are taxed only as the partners’ personal income. In contrast to, unlimited liability, partners are jointly and individually liable for the business activity of the other. If a partner withdraws from the partnership, he is still responsible for any debt the business had at the time of withdrawal, it does not matter who created the obligation. Decisions are shared and differences of opinion can lead to disagreements, which can lead to one partner buying out the other. The various funding options for small businesses offer an individual an alternative to partnership. Federal, state, and local governments have all created government subsidy or incentive programs try to facilitate small business funding. Commercial banks and private investors also play a key role in funding small businesses. The business......

...INTRODUCTION The idea or concept of Business to Business (B2B) marketing has existed for centuries but for a long time it had been ignored and remained in the shadows of the more traditional Business to Consumer (B2C) marketing (Pitt & Honeycutt, 2001). It is over the last two decades has more light been shone on this important phenomenon- where businesses trade with other businesses, governments and Institutions . It is essential to first and foremost understand that B2B marketing cannot exist in isolation, the existence of B2B and B2C markets are in many ways dependent on each other for its survival and growth, a single demand for a B2C product such as a car gives rise to millions of B2B market demands such as aluminum, leather, steering systems, engines, etc (derived demand). Furthermore a failure in one market will have significant detrimental impact on the other. This essay however aims to identify the differences that exist between the two markets and how multinationals such as Hewlett-Packard (HP) implement separate marketing strategies based on the distinctions that exist within the market and their consumers. PRODUCT DIFFERENCE (standardized vs. complex) Hewlett Packard (HP), famous for its laptops, desktops and printers and storage devices sells its products in both markets. The B2C market it operates is more standardized and less complex that its B2B counterpart. Large groups of individual customers exist whose specifications for the products are more or......

Marketing is a matter of earning people’s trust. According to the Business Dictionary, “Marketing is the management process through which goods and services move from concept to the customer. It includes the coordination of four elements called the four P’s of marketing: identification, selection, and development of a product, determination of its price, selection of a distribution channel to reach the customer's place, and development and implementation of a promotional strategy.” (Marketing Concept, 2013).

...Marketing for Business Today I will discuss marketing for a business. I will identify the pros and cons of creating a business under the partnership form of ownership. I will cover funding options for small business and how each option affects the business from the owner standpoint. I will discuss managerial accounting, and determine how it can help managers with product costing, incremental analysis and budgeting. I will cover the basic components of the marketing process using a product I have come up with. Finally, I will discuss the role of social responsibility and technology in the marketing function. A business partnership is defined as two or more persons (usually not a married couple) who agree to contribute money, labor, and/or skill to a business. Each partner shares the profits, losses, and management of the business and each partner is personally and equally liable for debts of the partnership. Formal terms of the partnership are usually contained in a written partnership agreement (Ownership Structure Types 2013). There are three major types of partnerships. The General Partnership, the Limited Partnership and the Limited Liability Partnership. The limited partnership and the limited liability partnerships both are used to protect the assets of a contributing partner. A limited partnership limits the amount of liability to the amount of the partner’s investment. The limited liability partnership is the same as the limited partnership, buts protects......

Services play an increasingly important role in the economy and in individual organizations. Services are particularly relevant in industries where competitive pressures are forcing companies to find ways to create competitive differentiation. (Davey) Marketing a service is not exactly the same as marketing physical goods. It has been called "selling the invisible" - delivering intangible services as a core "product" offering . However, invisibility, or intangibility, is just one factor that distinguishes services marketing from product marketing. Other factors include inseparability, heterogeneity, and perishability. These four characteristics affect the way clients behave during the buying process and the way organizations must interact with them. 1. Intangibility - Services are not physical and cannot be...

Depending on the type of business or the product or service you are selling, by having a physical address there are a lot of advantages (Mullins, 2010). One of those advantages is that you can build a personal relationship with the repeat customers, and form a lasting trust worthy authority on the product or service you are attempting to sell.

...Project Report Launching the BMW Z3 Roadster Introduction BMW Z3 is the 1st BMW car which is being manufactured in North America, a market which has contributed only 16% to BMW s revenues. At the same time, the American customer has found itself very difficult to relate itself to a foreign brand. Here lies the challenge for BMW and the marketing efforts behind the Z3 campaign are aimed at changing this perception of the American customer and ingrain BMS s brand image in the hearts of Americans. Phase1 which was not a run of the mill marketing campaign created a huge buzz and was deemed a huge success. The campaign revolved around the placement of the BMW Z3 in the James Bond Movie, GOLDENEYE as Bonds new car. Several other non-traditional elements such as being part of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Catalog, product appearance on the Jay Leno show, and launch at Central Park ensured an out-of-the-box prelaunch. The challenge now is to leverage the buzz and design Phase II marketing strategies which will convert the interest generated into revenues for BMW. Strategic Significance of the Launch The launch is especially significant for BMW because the success of the entire U.S. operations of BMW crucially hinged on it. Moreover, BMW hopes to position the BMW brand firmly in American culture and settle into the hearts and minds of the American public through the launch. It was also meant to promote the vehicle as a cultural icon in America. Further, the launch demonstrates......

Explain why Sears or Wal-mart cannot effectively create a trendy counterculture image. Sears or Wal-Mart cannot effectively create a trendy counterculture image because Wal-Mart, for instance, operates on a high volume low profit margin and Sears operates on a high profit margin. The only way this can be done is to have the products mass produced which make it impossible to be either trendy or counterculture. To be trendy counterculture is to be unique when going against other retailers. Sears on the other hand are higher priced but still mass produced items which they think will appeal to the general public. Neither Sears nor Wal-mart can make the changes that would be needed to adopt the image. If they do, they would risk turning off their existing customer base. Lastly, the extensive product selection does not lend itself to the image. Furthermore, the best either of these could do is create a mini-shop, given the current brand image, the trendy image may be a hard sell for "trendy" customers, that may be the target. 2.
