1. If we divested product 103, it would:
a. decrease sales by $5,200
b. Decrease expenses by:
i. $88 for compensation insurance ii. $1300 for direct labor iii. $946 for materials iv. $68 for supplies
v. $59 for power vi. $20 repairs
This would decrease that 158 by 2,719 which would make this very unprofitable. It was a good move to not divest this product group.
2. In January 2005, we should not lower the price to $8.64 if we dropped the price, we would be making a loss on this product. An argument could be made that if we lower the price we will increase volume, but the case stated that dropping the price has historically NOT led to increased volume. I would not cut the price unless we could somehow make up the margin with a decrease in costs. We also could not drop the price in hope to retaining margin from the other products because they are currently operating at a loss.

3. There most profitable product line is Product 101. It is the only product making money. In 2003 it had the highest sales and the highest net income. It does have the highest expenses but that is based on variable costs and the amount of volume they produced.

4. The biggest reason for the change could be that products 102 and 103 were selling more volume thus making more money. Even though they are still selling at a loss, it is less of a loss than in 2003. Since the income from product 101 is holding to plan, it is helping with the losses from 102 and 103. Also, the variance between standard and actual had more of a positive impact than a negative…...

Hilton Hotel

...CASE 2 Hilton Hotels Hilton Hotels Corporation owns, manages and/or franchises hotels, casino-hotels and inns; sells furnishings, equipment, and supplies to hotels, motels, and inns; and operates a computerized reservation system for the hotel industry. After two major takeover attempts in the early 1990s, Hilton Hotels decided that it had to change by becoming a more aggressive business operation. The result was the decision to move heavily into gambling. This change of strategic direction represented a significant shift in Hilton’s business focus and marketing objectives. Already the owner of four casinos in Nevada, the Los Angeles hotelier began pushing projects in New Orleans, Chicago, Egypt, Turkey, Uruguay, and Australia. While gaming accounted for about 34 percent of Hilton’s overall sales in the early 1990s, its four casinos contributed nearly two–thirds of Hilton’s operating earnings. Nevertheless, Hilton’s new emphasis on gambling carried a large element of risk. Competition for the gaming dollar is intense, and the degree of investment needed to be successful is high. Hilton has had to put more than $6 million into renovating the Las Vegas Hilton to keep up with such rivals as the Mirage and the Excalibur, and it has also renovated the Flamingo Hilton to keep pace with other new places. To lure high rollers away from other casinos, the Las Vegas Hilton has had to be more generous about extending credit, resulting in bad gaming debts and reductions in operating......

Hilton Honors

...1-The strengths of Hilton HHonors program from the standpoint of Hilton Hotels Corp and Hilton Internationals are that it builds brand loyalty and this is seen as the industry’s most important marketing tool. It builds partnerships and collaboration, accesses new markets, and also creates a greater recognition of the Hilton brand. Weaknesses would include Hilton not being the industry leader, competitive information is shared freely in the industry and there is less standardization of operations. Strengths for Members Properties (franchised hotels) are that their reputation could increase because they are with a renowned brand. There is support for the franchise from the franchisors. With expansions that means more visibility and possibly new customers for the franchises. Weaknesses would be that there are more restrictions in operations because the franchisors are now dominant, new agreement would increase the ongoing payment of fees from the franchise to the franchisor. You will also not be guaranteed success for the franchise. Strengths from the standpoints of guests would be easy to use loyalty rewards program, the more you stay the more service value you will obtain, the loyalty program extends worldwide. Weaknesses would include a variation in room price, there is a limited access for redemption during peak periods and the one-time customers are not given preference. Strengths from the corporate travel departments are personal incentives for individuals and......

...HILTON MANUFACTURING CO. 1.- Si la empresa hubiera abandonado el producto 103 el 1 de enero de 1991 ¿qué efecto hubiera tenido esa acción sobre el beneficio? Incurriríamos en una pérdida de ingresos de 5.2M$ ( multiplicado por 2 si queremos hacer todo el año) y tendríamos que repartir entre los dos productos restantes unos costes fijos de 3,096M$ (también x2) que no evitamos si dejamos de producir. Total más de 8 millones en 6 meses… o 16 en un año… 2.- Habría que reducir en enero del 1992 el precio del 101 de 9,41 a 8,64 $kg como hace Catalyst? Entiendo que sí porque con 750 mil me sale que perdería 761M$ y con 1 millón pierde 195M$. Supongo que a Catalyst le sale la cuenta como para reducir el precio porque podrá distribuir el coste fijo entre un número mucho mayor de unidades, el coste variable es pequeño en relación al fijo. Creo que Hilton no podrá aguantar, porque pierde en todos sus productos ¿no?. 3.- Qué producto sería más interesante vender si un cliente precisara 1.000kg de cualquier producto Hilton? y si quisiera comprar por valor de 10M$? Manejando los costes y precios que tenemos a fecha 30 de junio creo que hay que vender el producto que mayor margen de contribución tiene: el 101. ¿Qué opináis? 4- Cuál es el producto más rentable de la Hilton? 101 5.- Cuáles son las causas de los beneficios en la primera mitad de 1991? el incremento de las ventas de 102. Me ayuda a pagar los costes fijos....

... Hilton worldwide Financial analysis: With the initialization of the company in the year 1919, it made a really good start and took out a lot of contemporary competitors during the period of the 20th century.

This was absolutely a huge financial enhancement for the company as it led to the generation of $2.21 billion as overall net unit growth and the overall unit growth was increased to 4.5% in the segment of management and Franchise. To establish a certain financial position in the commercial market, a company requires certain factors to be accomplished to attain the targeted financial objective. These factors include, setting up a common mission, a specific set of values and lastly proper strategic priorities. It was important for the company to shift into a capital centric model strategy that will allow making progress with less investment in keeping their focus on the global development strategy. The key step that was beneficial for the company was the performance driven work culture. Another important factor in the tourism and hospitality industry is the diversification. In simple terms, the global reach of a company also provides an estimate over the financial condition of it. The more global a......

Hilton Hotels

...CHEKITAN DEV op yo Hilton Hotels: Brand Differentiation through Customer Relationship Management In early 2008, Hilton Hotels Corporation was poised for tremendous global growth—with an aggressive goal of opening 1,000 hotels in North America in five years and 1,000 hotels in the rest of the world in ten years. The company had just been taken private by the Blackstone Group1 for a reported $26 billion, a 32% premium over the $32.05 share price the day prior to the announcement. The takeover announcement by Blackstone clearly framed the road ahead: “Blackstone intends to invest in the Hilton properties and brands globally to enhance and grow the business for the benefit of owners, franchisees, and customers... This transaction is about building the premier global hospitality business.” tC But growth would not be easy in the highly competitive global lodging business. Challenges in this market historically included access to capital, high levels of employee turnover, and difficulty achieving standardization typical of service delivery operations. Improving service delivery and consistency across the family of Hilton brands had been the major focus of the Customers Really Matter (CRM) strategy that the firm launched in 2002. With five years invested in CRM, the Blackstone acquisition provided the opportunity to evaluate the results to date and to devise an action plan going forward.

The 1990’s also brought about a time of change for the hotel industry: many brands began consolidating and combining resources. Hotel companies soon began combining operations, reservation systems, and marketing programs. Hilton hotel group was one hotel group that did just that. In the mid-1990’s the Hilton brand was own by two companies: The Hilton Hotel Company and Hilton International. In 1997, both companies came together to unify their marketing efforts, around this same time the companies created the HHonors Loyalty rewards program. The program was designed to unite the brand and unify its customer base in the US and abroad. The newly created program HHonors essentially worked for both of these companies and their franchisees, and was tasked with breaking even each year. Loyalty programs reward frequent guest by giving them points for each of their stays; points can then be redeemed for free nights, airline miles, and products from other participating vendors. Starwood Hotels has organized a rewards program that features no blackout dates, no capacity control, paperless rewards, and a higher reimbursement rate to the hotel for the nights given out using points.
