2006 May, acquire shares of Five Star appliance 2007 January, the first brand store in Shanghai 2011, announced to close the 9 branded stores in China

4 Five forces model Existing competitive rivalry between supplier- strong GOME, SUNING Threat of new market entrants- strong Circuit city of USA, Yamada and Island appliance from Japan Bargaining power of buyers- strong Little differences in products, prefer more familiar and local brand Bargaining power of suppliers- complex Threat of substitute products Easily to be replaced by appliance department of stores, supermarkets and shopping web sites, such as TAOBAO, EBAY and 360buy

5 SWOT model Strength Good customer service, good quality, rich management experience in Europe Weakness High retail price and cost, weak market share Opportunity Foreign brand effect, new categories Threat Strong local competitors and new entrant, little familiarity with local customer, cultural difference

6 Key issues 1. Slow expansion strategy
Primarily open stores by acquiring the real estate, not renting and leasing Before fully expanding, the main domestic competitor, Suning & Gome had controlled China market

7 2. Lack of retail experience and research in China
Environment change, culture difference, product preference Price too high, focus on product diversity rather than brands and quality
