...Manila businessman, Don Enrique María Barretto de Ycaza y Esteban, applied for a royal grant from Spain to establish a brewery in the Philippines. He was awarded the grant for a period of twenty years. On September 29, 1890 (Michaelmas, or the feast day of Saint Michael the Archangel), La Fábrica de Cerveza de San Miguel was declared open for business. Located at 6 Calzada de Malacañang(later called Calle Avilés), the brewery took its name from its neighbourhood, the arrabal(suburb or district) of San Miguel. The facility had two sections: one devoted to the production of ice with a daily capacity of 5 tonnes, and the other to beer production. The brewery was the first in Southeast Asia using the most modern equipment and facilities of the day. With 70 employees, the plant produced 3,600 hectolitres (about 47,000 cases) of lager beer during the first year and subsequently produced other types of beer, notably Cerveza Negra, Eagle Extra Stout and Doble Bock. Early success led to the expansion of the business and Barretto decided to incorporate his brewery. On 6 June 1893, the company was incorporated and registered with a capital of P180,000. Those forming the corporation were Don Pedro Pablo Róxas y Castro, Don Gonzalo Tuasón y Patiño, Don Vicente D. Fernández y Castro, Don Albino Goyenechea, Benito Legarda y Tuáson, the heirs of Don Mariano Buenaventura y Chuidan and Barretto.

Communication Plan

...Communications Plan Traditionally, beer is known as a critical part of Germany’s culture and directly translates to their industry practices and market behavior. According to Carroll, Preisendoefer, Swaminathan, and Wiedenmayer (1993), Germany is most notable for the highly fragmented structure of its industry, which contains many more breweries than the larger American industry. However, product concentration has not risen as expected for the market in Germany, which can be attributed to many factors including strong consumer preferences, high transportation costs, and governmental prohibitions specifically define acceptable ingredients used in German beer (Adams, 2006). Germany can increase its market share on a national level by careful and strategic expansion into other beer markets that currently have high demand for beer and less production barriers that counteract cost advantages of large-scale brewing. The most common type of product packaging used in Germany is bottling, which accounts for 60% of beer containment. Of the remaining 40% cans and kegs each makes up 20%. Canning has accelerated production capacity. Canning lines can fill 2,000 containers per minutes versus bottle lines that fill 1,100 containers per minute (Adams, 2006). The bottles used by German brewers are reusable, which adds to the high-cost of production. Expanding into new markets that support an efficient packaging mix, such as the use of canning lines will motivate German brewers to build......

Current Management Situation

...Current Management Situation (A Profile of Philippine Management) Management activities as planning, organizing and decision-making are cocoons until the leadership triggers the power of motivation in people and guides them towards goals. The primary public service that any business can render is its own economic success, its ability to harness science and technology to the production of better goods and services that increase employment and raise our standard of living. The job of professional management is to conduct the affairs of the enterprise in such a way as to maintain an equitable and workable balance among the claims of the various directly interested groups-stockholders, employees, customers, and the public at large. The origins of Filipino managers Filipino managers are predominantly of indigenous Philippine racial stock although a significant number are of foreign origin, primarily Chinese, Spanish, and American. Filipino managers have come mostly from the higher socio-economic strata of Philippine society. They are composed largely of individuals from outside the metropolitan area, belonging to families with above-average landholdings. Invariably, their career paths were paved by family ties or consanguinity. Thus, Filipino managers are strongly oriented to their families of origin. The breadwinner in their family (usually the father) has an occupation that is either of the independent, upper white-collar or professional categories and whose......

Public Securities Corporation

...1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Public Securities Corporation (PSC), a wholly-owned stock brokerage firm of the AFP Retirement and Separation Benefits System (AFP RSBS) envisions itself to be one of the top stock brokerage firms in the Philippines. The company was acquired by the AFP RSBS from a group of private individuals in 1994 with the main objective of taking advantage of the favorable prospects in the stock market and at the same time, to generate income for the mother company. Value turnover at the Philippine Stock Exchange slowed by 30% and lost P383 billion from P1.2 trillion in 1997 to P817 billion in 1998 due to the Asian Financial crisis. The decline in value turnover resulted to less commission income generated from broking services that caused both local and foreign brokers to leave the Philippine equities market and applied for temporary suspension, while others opted to cease operations totally. Political instability also discouraged investors in Philippine equities during the Estrada Administration. Illegal trading activities, such as frontrunning, insider trading and “kiting” resulted to the loss of investors’ confidence towards the regulatory bodies, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Philippine Stock Exchange. This paper presents three frameworks to analyze the effectiveness of the company’s current strategy. Among the frameworks employed was PEST Analysis or Political, Economic, Social and Technological Analysis which was used......
