Due Diligence

Partner Acquisition

As part of a commercial due diligence, PMG recommended a B2B market research project focused on a supplier selection study to qualify potential suppliers and allow the company to provide a more system-based solution in the building products market. The study identified eleven potential suppliers and three supply scenarios that addressed potential risks and changing trends in consumer preference for the client to consider in their strategic decision making process. The company was able to favorably leverage future contract terms and negotiations based on the insight that resulted from the study.

Market Attractiveness

PMG conducted a market analysis of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico to determine the best opportunity for geographic expansion of medical gloves in these Latin American markets. The analysis resulted in a market attractiveness model based on five key market criteria (market sizing, projected growth, competitive environment, and current trade relations) to determine which country presented the most favorable opportunity for market entry. As a result of the project, PMG's B2B Market Research project provided the client with a target market and marketing strategy to develop their new market opportunity plans.

Competitive Intelligence

PMG's B2B market research approach entailed reaching out to and connecting with the competitor's highest level executives to gain a deeper understanding of the company's R&D strategy than could be derived from publicly available sources. PMG's analysts, well experienced in contacting senior level managers and engaging them in conversation, were utilized to develop a thorough understanding of the client's major competitor. The competitive intelligence gained from the conversations with key executives proved to be valuable insight into the competitor's value position in the market.

Market Research

Through custom market research, PMG assessed the current hermetic compressor market in juxtaposition with the company's net position on each product and service attribute. The PMG study proposed two alternative strategies to leverage the company's perceived strengths in the marketplace: to compete on reliability or efficiency. As a direct result of PMG's recommendations, the company aggressively pursued the position of a strong second supplier and, in turn, has strengthened its market positioning in the industry.

Customer Mapping

PMG conducted a B2B market research project which included a customer mapping exercise to provide a PET bottle manufacturer with a current and comprehensive database of potential customers to support their sales and marketing efforts. The customer mapping generated a detailed profile of most bottle filler end users in the defined market to provide insight on potential customers to assist in future customer acquisition. As a result of the project, PMG provided the company with a user friendly business tool to expand and grow beyond their current market position.
