1b What is the current life cycle position of the industry (bottled water)?
The industry is in growth stage of its life cycle.
- This is demonstrated by the increasing in per capita connsumption of bottled water. In 2013, Australian consumed 33.1 litres of bottled watre per capita. But this consumption is still significant
lower than the consumption of the top 10 global bottled water consuming countries & other similar markets (US, Italy, France..). This suggests that the Australian market has potential for higher
rate of consumptions and sales growth.
- Its strong growth rate also be shown clearly through its fastest growing rate in the non-alcoholic beverage industry. Table 1 shows that it has significantly increased its market share over the
past 10 years in non-alcoholic beverages, and is predicted to have further strong growth (to reach 19% in 2018)
- Industry rivalry is low, particulary as the major competitors are focuse on supplying through different distribution channels. They have tended to dominate
one or two distribution channels only, rather than all channels to advoid strong head-to-head competition,
=> Up to date, the industry is in the growth stage.
However, it shld be noted that in the future it is expected to change as consumption growth of bottled water begins to slow. Just several new competitors have...
...fusion of tradition and technology” (Hunter Boot Ltd., 2013)
Hunter Boot Ltd. was founded in 1856, styled as the North British Rubber Company, producing not only rubber boots but also tyres, conveyors and flooring. The famous ‘wellies’ or wellington boots rose to fame when they were mass-produced during World War I to supply the army. By the end of the war ‘wellies’ had become popular for use among the general population as well. After changing ownership several times Hunter Rubber Company became a standalone company in 2004, and was bought out of administration as Hunter Boot Ltd. in 2006. Now solely focusing on footwear, the company has since positioned itself firmly and both the UK and USA footwear markets. In 2008 Hunter closed its plant of 96 years and relocated its headquarters to Edinburgh (Scotland) and production to China. Striving for more efficiency and effectiveness in the production process Hunter boots are only still visually similar to its original design, whereas they have in fact become virtually identical to the boots produced by its competitors. Nevertheless Hunter has experienced a period of considerable growth and is now distributed internationally in over 30 countries (Hunter Boot Ltd., 2013).
The author feels that is important to make a clear distinction between the years up to 2006, which is the year Hunter Boot Ltd. was placed into admission, and the years 2007 and onwards...

Introduction of Company:
From the of beginning Posts & Telegraph Department in 1947 and establishment of Pakistan Telephone & Telegraph Department in 1962, PTCL has been a major player in telecommunication in Pakistan. Despite having established a network of enormous size, PTCL workings and policies have attracted regular criticism from other smaller operators and the civil society of Pakistan.
Pakistan Telecommunication Corporation (PTC) took over operations and functions from Pakistan Telephone and Telegraph Department under Pakistan Telecommunication Corporation Act 1991. This coincided with the Government's competitive policy, encouraging private sector participation and resulting in award of licenses for cellular, card-operated pay-phones, paging and, lately, data communication services.
Pursuing a progressive policy, the Government in 1991, announced its plans to privatizePTCL, and in 1994 issued six million vouchers exchangeable into 600 million shares of the would-be PTCL in two separate placements. Each had a par value of Rs. 10 per share. These vouchers were converted into PTCL shares in...

Here is the management report, which you asked me to prepare.. In the process of formulating this project report I selected a PHARMACEUTICAL company,“BEXIMCO PHARMACEUTICALS” which produces world class live saving medicines in our country. I gained knowledge about managing the product & the structure from online articles and reports. Along with it, I employed the management concepts developed throughout the course to construct an effective management project to demonstrate the mentioned firm’s entire management strategies in Bangladesh. This plan is formulated with the idea of managing the all managerial activities of a large firm like BEXIMCO PHARMACEUTICALS LIMITED.
A special note of acknowledgement is to our course instructor Mr Shahid Hossain for letting me do this project on Beximco Pharmaceuticals . He was very generous and productive toward mewhile conducting the course and he was the person who has guided methroughout preparing the report. The way he taught was really interesting and effective. All of these activities have been conducted within a very short time and we think it became possible only for his dynamism. Taking the course with him was a great fortune for me.
Finally, I would like to thank myr family and friends whose support I needed to complete my project.

...Central London Property Trust Ltd v High Trees House Ltd KB 130 (or the High Trees case) is an English contract law decision in the High Court. It reaffirmed the doctrine of promissory estoppel in contract law in England and Wales. Denning J held estoppel to be,
In 1937, High Trees House Ltd leased a block of flats in Clapham, London, for a rate £2500/year from Central London Property Trust Ltd. Due to the conditions during the beginning of World War II occupancy rates were drastically lower than normal.
In January 1940, to ameliorate the situation the parties made an agreement in writing to reduce rent by half. However, neither party stipulated the period for which this reduced rental was to apply. Over the next five years, High Trees paid the reduced rate while the flats began to fill, and by 1945, the flats were back at full occupancy. Central London sued for payment of the full rental costs from June 1945 onwards (i.e. for last two quarters of 1945).
Based on previous judgments such as Hughes v Metropolitan Railway Co, Denning J held that the full rent was payable from the time that the flats became fully occupied in mid-1945. However, he continued in an obiter statement that if Central London had tried to claim for the full rent from 1940 onwards, they would not have been able to. This was reasoned on the basis that if a party leads another party to believe that he will not enforce his strict...
