2 Pyramid Situation Maxclean has an established market share of 60% of the cleanroom market in China. Their revenue last year was US$240M worldwide Complication The US operations direct sales strategy is bringing in zero profit as oppose to the forecasted $2.4M net profit. The revenue was 55% below the forecasted $20M US.

3 Pyramid Question How can we increase US revenue from $9M to $20M and increase profit from zero to $2.4M net profit in the next 18 months? Answers The Maxclean sales force should shift their focus to spend their time building relationships with and selling through distributors.

4 BECAUSE….. Distributors want to sell Maxcleans product since it is beneficial for them to do so Corporate end users prefer to purchase through distributors Rationale Going through distributors provides better economics for Maxclean Distributors have complete product lines Going through distributors will save Maxclean warehousing & transportation costs, & therefore increase gross profit Going through distributors will allow Maxclean to sell high volumes since distributors order more product than direct customers Going through distributors allows Maxclean to extend its product reach, since distributors can sell to larger sales territory Distributors will receive a higher profit margin compare to other brands Distributors see benefits in getting better payment terms with Maxclean Better customer service and faster delivery Low investment costs since logistic system already established
