Market Research, Feasibility Studies, and PPMs
Twenty-Five Years of Market Experience
For over twenty-five (25) years, Gulf Global Synergies LLC (“GGS”), (a joint venture between Capistrano Global Advisory Services (CGA) and Entilaq), has been guiding and directing companies domestically and internationally. GGS’s internal research team is uniquely qualified and experienced in conducting extensive market research and uncovering valuable market intelligence. All of GGS’s market research is conducted in-house by GGS’s staff and research fellows. Nothing is outsourced.
Detailed, Industrial Knowledge – Understanding the Nuances
GGS prides itself on knowing its clients and their businesses in an intimate and detailed fashion. In turn, GGS is able to produce some of the most comprehensive and in-depth market research available anywhere in the marketplace. GGS has over two decades of actual market experience in heavy industry, general manufacturing, automotive & heavy truck, infrastructure, construction, pharmaceutical, oil & gas, plastics, agriculture, foodstuffs and a variety of other industries and sectors. GGS meticulously guides clients through the intricacies of market demand, market potential and market success.
Identifying Competitors, Alliance Partners, Customers & Acquisition Targets – at Home and Abroad
Due to the fact that GGS has operated extensively in a variety of countries and industries over the past 25 years, it is in a position to uncover revealing and valuable information about current/future competition, possible strategic alliance and joint venture partners, customers and clients, and acquisition targets. Furthermore, GGS can do this at home and abroad, in numerous markets including, but not limited to, the following: North America, South America, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Japan and Korea.
GGS’s Team – “Brain Trust,” Poise, Contacts & Reach
GGS is comprised of some of the most capable and competent business minds in the hemisphere. From former CEOs to former intelligence officials, and from investment bankers to private equity experts, GGS’s team is impeccable and incomparable. GGS is able to provide invaluable and highly coveted information to clients in a cost-effective, expeditious and efficient manner; this is information that is difficult to come by without extensive market reach. Additionally, GGS’s network of contacts on a global scale is nothing short of impressive.
GGS’s Strategic Market Entry Analysis (“SMEA”) – A Proprietary and Actionable Document and Approach
In the early 1990s, GGS copyrighted its unique market study approach. It is called the Strategic Market Entry Analysis or “SMEA” and it is designed to give business executives a truly extensive market research tool that is far more action-oriented than the documents provided by other entities similarly situated. It delves into details that are obtained primarily through one-on-one interviews with potential competitors, customers, alliance partners and acquisition targets. It is useful information that can be acted upon immediately. It is quite literally a roadmap for market entry and includes specifically tailored strategic advice. Furthermore, the SMEA culminates in a personal visit to the target area or region. Upon the completion of the SMEA, members of the GGS team accompany clients on a highly targeted and focused visit to a given region by using the information uncovered by GGS in the SMEA; this is part of the SMEA process. This visit allows GGS’s clients to immediately access sales leads, alliances and/or acquisitions in key areas.
Foreign Acquisition Targeting
GGS assists client to identify potential partners, suppliers, subcontractors, customers, clients, distribution networks, Greenfields, Brownfields and/or foreign acquisition targets. GGS organizes trips to the targeted regions and accompanies clients to all meetings. GGS also provides assistance on the establishment of legal entities abroad (i.e., the establishment of a legal corporate entity in a foreign country).
