Norther Drilling

...time for Noranda, since they are on the verge of ramping up. Being the fourth largest Nickel producers, one can expect Noranda to be aggressive to try and locate new lands for exploration, meaning more projects for Northern. Option 2: Relocating 4 machines from the Noranda site to Mond site Relocating will save the company initial investment of $3.6 MN and also will help them submit a more competitive quote, but can seriously damage their reputation with Noranda. In the industry, it is a common practice that competitors discuss and share information about the vendors. Hence, there is a high probability that Noranda will know that Northern has allocated resources to Mond, their direct competitor. COMPETITIVE QUOTE Complex job space Boart lost Mond’s contract and it is highly unlikely that they will get Noranda’s , because exploration companies establish credibility through referrals. Major will not consider Mond’s contract a strategic job so there is no real threat from them. Intermediate Job Space Orbit cannot compete with Northern in the Complex job space since Northern is far more reputable and capable of handling this work. Orbit can only compete with Northern on price, as quality of drillers at Northern is top class. Therefore Northern can reduce their margins on the intermediate jobs and not look very expensive compared to Orbit FUTURE OF THE BUSINESS: The company’s strategic vision is to invest into a long-term project to save themselves from market......

...but the contract would enhance the reputation of the company if it is properly delivered. Finally, Mond’s contract will help Northern to diversify revenue source and credit risk, which eventually reduces concentration risk in its business portfolio. For the above reasons, the alternative of not bidding on Mond’s contract is not considered. (5) Competitor: Is there any option for Northern to ask competitors for a J/V agreement? The biggest issue Northern faces is that they had difficulty hiring experienced drillers in the industry. Who would be an ideal competitor to complement this weakness and supplement competitors’ needs as well? Orbit will not be a collaborator because they don’t have the skilled drillers that Northern needs. Boart cannot be a collaborator either, because they have been struggling with the decline in service due to a management issue and a driller’s shortage. Major may be a good partner. With its global training camps, Major not only has the most technological capability and experience, but also has enough labor availability. The collaboration with Major enables Northern to bid on a deep job for which Northern lacks know-how. Northern can help Major’s scarce capacity problem. To complement both needs, Northern can propose to Major following J/V conditions: (i) Major helps to deploy labor; (ii) Major does the deep job while Northern does the intermediate job, with a higher margin to be given to Major; (iii) Split investment for drill purchase.......

Northern Drilling

...hurdle rate Northern benchmarks investment decisions. Taking these financials into consideration, only the projects where he renegotiates with Noranda Nickel and diverts 4 drills away from Noranda’s exploration sites and uses them on the Mond Nickel contract would make sense. However, Peter Bremners company is in a position to increase its usual GM of 30% and make some of the other options financially attractive as well. The two main reasons for this are: 1: He has a competitive advantage over the other competitors. Orbit is known to be a discount contractor. It lacks the technical experience and because they are a low price bidder it has probably not the financial resources and stability Northern possesses to bid for such a big project. Boart has previously lost its contract with Mond so that with its recent management issues and underperformance does not pose a serious threat to Northern. The competitive advantage over Major is that they will have a lower price because our cost basis should be lower since Northern is much smaller and do not have the overhead Major has. 2: There is no issue in sharing information between competitors in this industry. It is plausible that the real competition in this industry is to secure the drilling rights. Mond will contact Noranda and they will not only talk about the quality of Northern’s work, but also about it’s pricing. If Northern bids aggressively and perhaps even deviates from its 20% hurdle rate to get the contract, Noranda will......

...profitable industry, I think that the attractiveness is not as high as it could be. These driving changes will increase competitivity and ultimately lower profitability. 4. What market positions do industry rivals occupy—who is strongly positioned and who is not? In the terms of this case the three major competitors for this deal is as follows: Boart Long year (Boart) Better reputation and in a strong position, but had some recent bad performance. Major Drilling Group International Inc. (Major) Second largest drilling contractor, more experienced with more technically capable than Northern. Also global training camps in place for new drillers, better equipped to handle the Mond job. Constrained by capacity and had done little work for Mond.  They will probably bid high as they do not need this job, otherwise Northern will not be able to compete against them. Orbit Garant Drilling Inc. (Orbit) Discount contractor, expected to bid aggressively. However Bremmner did not think that Oribt performed such deep work and it did not perform technical work on a regular basis. 5. What strategic moves are rivals likely to make next? Boart- Boart needs to improve their reputation. This could be a job that would make or break them. If they pull this job off then their reputation would be restored. I would bid a little aggressive for this contract and hope their well known history will land them the job. Major- As one of the leaders in the industry I would bid the job If I was......

Northern Drilling Case (intermediate and deep) in the Mond Nickel contract and place ourselves as the top major drilling contractor in Canada. This is easier said then done, we currently have a few obstacles before reaching our goal and taking the Mond Nickel contract. Our lack of equipment/machinery, lack of personnel, the uncertainty of geological conditions, and the risk of damaging our client relationship with Noranda are factors we need to take into consideration. As a company we can take advantage of our competitive advantage over the other three mining competitors and build ourselves an even bigger reputation and employee skillset that will put us at an advantage for any future tenders that may arise. We have three main competitors for the contract; Boart, Major, and Orbit. Major is the only one that has a technical competitive advantage over us, they have the equipment and personnel to perform such a job. Whereas in Northern’s case, we need to, purchase 4 new drills, bulldozers/skidders, and supporting equipment. Other than buying new equipment we can always rent, as long as the rental period of the drill, bulldozer, and supporting equipment per year is less than $ 360,000 (depreciation rate). The outlook for the mining sector is relatively positive, however nothing is certain, yet to establish ourselves as one of the most technically competent drilling contractors I propose in buying 4 new drills along with there supporting equipment and bulldozers; in addition to the four drills......

Dicore Case Study anything outside the industry, which means the thread of substitute can only come from direct competitors. Dicore has limited number of large competitors which it competes in several areas include the southwestern region. However, although the industry has several barriers to enter, small but competitive drilling companies found their ways to sustain in the business, and may become more competitive in the future. 2.3.9. Power of buyers Dicore’s customers include “majors” and “juniors”. Majors usually have more bargaining power than juniors, due to the wider range of choices and their preference of sticking with one contractor. 2.3.10. Power of Suppliers From information given, it can be assumed that Boart Longyear, Dicore’s biggest competitor, is also Dicore’s major supplier, which sell Dicore its own drills and drilling equipment. In other words, the bargaining power of suppliers should be low, as the only reason Dicore would purchase equipment from its competitor is because it offers a lower price. 2.3.11. Extent of Rivalry Between Competitors The rivalry between competitors is likely to be high for the following reasons. Firstly, the declining of the drilling industry growth rate and the low profitability are signs of increased rivalry. According to Johnson et al (2014), it is difficult for companies to compete in this situation, especially those companies require high investments in drilling equipment and have high fixed......

Environmental regulations in that area were high, but not follow international trends. But some procedure should follow highly required regulation in that area. Drill may shut down due to conditions, when violating a regulation, and client and contractor faced legal issues. Companies were responsible for recovering environment, some even bankrupted due to this. Competitors * About 400 drills by 25 companies in southwestern region.

...catapulting it to the number one position in the global gold industry. ANGLOGOLD – A BRIEF HISTORY In 1917, Sir Ernest Oppenheimer1 (Sir Ernest) established the ‘Anglo American Corporation’ (Anglo American) in South Africa to exploit the gold mining potential of East Rand in South Africa. It was started with an authorised capital of £1million,2 raised from the UK and the U.S. – hence the company name. With significant gold mining developments in the 1920s, Anglo American became the largest single shareholder in De Beers3 in 1926. Sir Ernest became the chairman of De Beers in 1929. In the 1930s, the company played a vital role in the establishment of industrial operations like ‘AECI’ (African Explosives and Chemical Industries), and ‘Boart Longyear Company’, a mining technology and drilling equipment company. During the 1940s and 1950s, Anglo American developed the ‘Free State goldfields’ and the ‘Vaal Reefs mine’ in South Africa. The success of these mines put the company at the forefront of the gold mining industry. In 1957, the company gained the confidence to develop the ‘Western Deep Levels’4 in South Africa. In 1961, for the first time Anglo American made its first major investment outside South Africa by acquiring stakes in the ‘Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Company’ in Canada. In the mid-1960s, Anglo American made forays into steel, 1 2 3 4 German-born industrialist, financier, and one of the most successful leaders in the mining industry in South Africa and......

Forever: de Beers and U.S. Antitrust Law

...Christensen Diamond Products, an American company that made diamond drill bits for oil rigs and consistently received shipments of De Beers’s best industrial diamonds. Before the Justice Department could act on this discovery, though, De Beers swiftly divested itself of all holdings in Christensen.15 In 1994 the Justice Department tried again, filing a suit against De Beers and General Electric for price fixing in the industrial diamonds market. The lawsuit against GE went to trial and was dismissed in a scant six weeks, when the court ruled it was impossible to determine whether Phillippe Loitier, one of the individuals charged, had in fact acted in De Beers’s interests. Loitier was the managing director of the Belgian company Diamant Boart, a customer of both GE and De Beers. Through other business dealings, he had allegedly been in repeated contact with De Beers board members. In the spring of 1992, both GE and De Beers raised their prices on industrial diamonds, the first increase in five years. Prior to that, Loitier had reportedly informed GE of De Beers’s intended price increase, and GE had responded with information about its price increase. The government argued that this exchange was part of a conspiracy to fix prices, and that because Loitier’s actions benefited De Beers, he had thus acted on behalf of the company. Disagreeing, the court ruled that this contact alone was not evidence of collusion, and what was alleged to be price fixing could......

...the economic instability has become the second hard hit area of China’s economy. The developed capitalist countries dominate economic globalization. America, Europe, Japan and other developed capitalist countries issue a lot of currency, and then the newly issued currency flows into China and causes the imported inflation. Such phenomenon strengthens the instability of the Chinese economy. There is another area of economy that has been negatively affected by globalization: culture. As the book says, “foreign resources and economic measures may affect different native cultures and may cause assimilation of a native people. ” (Held, David, 2004) Because of the economic globalization, some traditional Chinese customs or festivals like Dragon Boart Festival are faded out of people’s sight slowly. Instead, a variety of western festivals like Christmas and Valentine’s Day appear in people’s life. Most Chinese assimilate and crazy about every western thing. “As these populations are exposed to the English language, computers, western music, and North American culture, changes are being noted in shrinking family size, immigration to larger cities, more casual dating practices, and gender roles are transformed. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) China's traditional culture is increasing divorced from the Chinese people.
