Varumärkeshantering vid företagsförvärv i designbranschen

Andersson, Mona January 2008 (has links)
<p>Background: </p><p>The design industry is relatively immature in Sweden but large on the international market, where companies have used services from industrial design firms for a long time. Companies incresignly realise that design is an efficient mean to gain competitive advantages on the market. Several design companies fancy growth and to receive a wider market share to expand on the international market. One of them is Design Communicaton who has made a couple of acquisitions, to receive wider comptences and to cover different segments. That has lead to an increased brand portfolio with different subbrands, which can be complicated to handle efficiently in the internal and external communication. If it is not clear what each brand stands for and what the groups vision is, indinstincts among the employees may apply regarding how to communicate the structure of the company, to emphasize the synergies from the subbrands that are integrated in a project. Meanwhile it is important to promote the nich qualifications of the company.</p><p>Pininfarina is a strong brand in the design industry and the company produces several prestige projects for different clients.The most famous project is that they design all the Ferraris and has a co-branding agreement together with them, which has given Pininfarina a strong brand capital. They also use concept cars on international trade fairs, longterm and sustainable design and the Italian design that has global value. Together these strategies has built a strong brand for Pininfarina. Pininfarina have as well as Design Communication made acquisitions over the years and have received several brands to the portfolio. Pininfarina have solved this by only using on brand in the communication, which is their corporate brand name.</p><p>Problem formulation: </p><p>How could Design Communication do with their brands to faciliate growth and internationalisation – should they use one or several brands?</p><p>Method: </p><p>To investigate this I have made a qualitative study consisting of interviews with respondents in different positions at Design Communication.

Background: The design industry is relatively immature in Sweden but large on the international market, where companies have used services from industrial design firms for a long time. Companies incresignly realise that design is an efficient mean to gain competitive advantages on the market. Several design companies fancy growth and to receive a wider market share to expand on the international market. One of them is Design Communicaton who has made a couple of acquisitions, to receive wider comptences and to cover different segments. That has lead to an increased brand portfolio with different subbrands, which can be complicated to handle efficiently in the internal and external communication. If it is not clear what each brand stands for and what the groups vision is, indinstincts among the employees may apply regarding how to communicate the structure of the company, to emphasize the synergies from the subbrands that are integrated in a project. Meanwhile it is important to promote the nich qualifications of the company. Pininfarina is a strong brand in the design industry and the company produces several prestige projects for different clients.The most famous project is that they design all the Ferraris and has a co-branding agreement together with them, which has given Pininfarina a strong brand capital. They also use concept cars on international trade fairs, longterm and sustainable design and the Italian design that has global value. Together these strategies has built a strong brand for Pininfarina. Pininfarina have as well as Design Communication made acquisitions over the years and have received several brands to the portfolio. Pininfarina have solved this by only using on brand in the communication, which is their corporate brand name. Problem formulation: How could Design Communication do with their brands to faciliate growth and internationalisation – should they use one or several brands? Method: To investigate this I have made a qualitative study consisting of interviews with respondents in different positions at Design Communication. I have also made a personal interview with the design manager of Pininfarina, to see how they have solved the problem with several brands in their portfolio after aqcuisitions. I have used the inductive approach in the report, meaning that I began to collect empiry and thereafter searched for theories to explain the collected material. I chosed to interview Pininfarina as they are successful, have a strong brand with great recognition, good reputation and some people from the design industry says that Pininfarina is like the design industry’s formula one. Empiry: The respondents from Design Communication and Pininfarina describes their experiences of the acquisitions, the value of their brands and which the sources are that has brought value to the brands. Furthermore they discuss positive and negative issues with one or several brands in the portfolio and which alternative they would prefer in the future. They also explain that the communication is important to make everything work efficiently and with satisfaction. No matter what strategy the company might choose regarding one or several brands in the internal and external communication. Pininfarina also give advises to other design firms who would like to expand. Theory: The theory put focus on issues that took large space and was recurring in the interviews. Subjects such as corporate brand, different strategies to build a brand, company structure, acquisitions, one or several brands and communication are explained here. Analysis: In the analysis section I have sorted out how the empiry agrees with the theory and what issues that are strengthened by different theories. Inference: DC Group has a brand portfolio that the majority of the respondents find complicated to communicate internal and external. As the ambition appearantly is to go for growth, increase marketshares and to internationalise, it is important to choose the way that brings most value to the corporate brand. Today it is to use the corporate brand in combination with the subbrands to show their synergies, until Design Communication has got satisfying recognition. As soon as the brand capital of Design Communication is strong enough it would be the most efficient and natural thing to use it in all the communication, both internal and external.

Företag med stor kassa - vilka är alternativen och vad vill marknaden?

Gunnarsson, Anders, Ivarsson, Ulf January 2007 (has links)
<p>The Swedish business cycle is in a strong position at the moment, leading to great results and larger profits. This strong business posture has encouraged companies to increase both their liquidity and revenue. Now there is a dilemma, what actions should or could a respectable business take on these newfound liquid assets.</p><p>The purpose of this paper is to deliver a clear picture of what options there are for such companies listed on the Swedish stock-market, and how the market wants them to act. To these means we have studied the basic theories linked to this subject and reviewed the cause and effects that motivates them. We have also conducted interviews with the people representing the market through their line of business.</p><p>In the theory we found several options on what companies in similar situations tend to do. They can either hand out share dividends to stock owners, repurchase own company stocks, acquire financial assets or make acquisitions of companies. Through interviews with the people within the financial market, we have been able to establish the empirical facts necessary to analyse the theory we’ve brought forward and draw the following conclusions. The alternatives available and that the market agrees to can be ranked with company acquisitions as first, secondly share dividends and lastly repurchase of own company stock. However the market do not want a company to acquire financial assets, as long as it isn’t their core business.</p>

Social tillit och företagsförvärv : En kvantitativ studie om den sociala tillitens påverkan på synergieffekterna vid företagsförvärv

Blomqvist, Ingemar, Jonasson, Robert January 2013 (has links)
Företagsförvärv har sedan länge varit ett sätt för företag att få tillgång till tillväxt utan att behöva växa organiskt. Företagsförvärv har längre varit ett ämne som forskare har studerat och då framförallt belyst huruvida företagsförvärv är något som ska bedrivas eller inte bedrivas och om de skapar synergieffekter eller inte. Dock har inte forskningen inom området tidigare riktat speciellt mycket fokus på människorna som är involverade i företagsförvärv. Vi har i denna studie försökt att belysa denna aspekt. Detta genom att studera den sociala tillitens påverkan på synergieffekter vid ett företagsförvärv. Syfte med denna studie har varit att undersöka om det finns något samband mellan synergieffekterna vid företagsförvärv och den sociala tilliten på kort respektive lång sikt, samt vilken inverkan landets utvecklingsnivå har för utfallet. Studien har genomförts på 21 länder och på en mängd olika företagsförvärv inom varje land som har genomförts mellan åren 2004-2008 och där ägarandelen efter förvärvet har varit hundraprocentiga. För att besvara denna studies problem så har en kvantitativ metod används. Genom regressionsanalyser har de teorier som studiens grundar sig på testats i empirin. Detta utifrån ett deduktivt angreppsätt. Resultatet från denna studie visar att det finns tendenser till att den sociala tilliten påverkar synergieffekterna vid företagsförvärv. Dock efter att regressionsmodellen har modulerats. Det visar sig även att störst påverkan har den sociala tilliten på kort sikt i länder med den högsta graden av utvecklingsnivå.
