INDUSTRY PROFILE The textile and apparel industry is often considered the backbone of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s economy. In that south Asian republic which shares borders with China to the north, India to the east, and Iran and Afghanistan to the west, as well as the Arabian Sea to the southwest cotton textiles and apparel historically were the focus of the industry, mainly because of the large amount of cotton grown in the country. In fact, Pakistan currently ranks fourth among world cotton producers and third among world cotton consumers having produced 9. million 480-pound bales and consumed 11. 8 million 480-pound bales in the 2010/2011 marketing season. Pakistani textile manufacturers recently have diversified their product offerings to include man-made yarns, fabrics and apparel as the result of shifts in global demand for cotton-blend apparel. Other recent economic factors, such as the end of textile quotas in 2005, have caused Pakistan’s textile industry to continue to adapt in an effort to remain globally competitive. The republic’s textile and apparel industry in 2011 consisted f ginning, spinning, man-made fiber, weaving, finishing, apparel, terry towel, tarpaulin and canvas, and knitwear machinery sectors. The textile and apparel industry as a whole employed approximately 40 percent of total industrial workers and accounted for 46 percent of total manufacturing. There were 1,221 ginning units, featuring an installed capacity of 20 million bales of cotton. The spinning sector comprised 408 spinning units, with an installed capacity of 157,143 rotors; and 50 composite units, with an installed capacity of 10. 1 million spindles.
The country’s 10 man-made fiber units had an installed capacity of 660,000 tons. The Pakistani government’s Board of Investment reported 124 large and 425 small weaving units, with a total production capacity of 4. 4 billion square meters of fabric. With regard to finished textile goods, the country’s 5,000 apparel units featured an installed capacity of 450,000 sewing machines, show organizers reported. The installed capacity for Pakistani knitwear manufacturers numbered 12,000 machines. Tarpaulin and canvas production capacity totaled 100 million square meters, while installed capacity of terry towels totaled 7,500 looms.
While the Pakistani manufacturing sector as a whole in 2011 accounted for approximately 25 percent of the country’s estimated gross domestic product (GDP) of US$395. 2 billion on a purchasing-power-parity basis, the textile industry’s diverse product offerings accounted for 11 percent of the country’s GDP, as reported in the aforementioned IGATEX Pakistan report. In addition, approximately 60 to 70 percent of total exports came from the production of cotton textiles and apparel, which are considered Pakistan’s largest industries.
The Business Recorder, a Karachi-based financial newspaper, reported in June 2011 that the textile industry’s value addition accounted for more than 9 percent of the GDP, and that the industry had a market share of approximately 30 percent in world yarn trade and 8 percent in cotton cloth. With the recent decline in textile exports and a record-setting trade deficit that reached more than $2. 1 billion in the first two months of 2012, Pakistan’s textile industry currently is confronting new economic challenges.
Including the spinning, weaving, value-added apparel and made-up and home textile sectors had begun to downsize its workforce. A hike in interest rates in July 2011 by the country’s central bank led to increases in export refinancing, long-term commercial and industrial credit, and, ultimately, rising production costs. Furthermore, exporters are facing steep price competition from manufacturers in China, India and Bangladesh.

To stay abreast of technological advancements to meet the changing and challenging requirements of our customers. All of us at Gulistan are committed to delivering more to our customers all over the globe.

Analysis Basically Vision statement is the answer of the question that “what do we want to become? ”And it is a really important component of the organization. If the organization wants to formulate any strategy clear vision is the key component required for that.
Let’s analyze the vision statement of Gulistan point by point. * Conglomerate means “A group of diverse companies under common ownership and run as a single organization” so it’s clear that they want to take over the whole textile industry under their own company. This sends a clear message to the competitors that they want to compete. This statement motivates the employees because they made it clear what they want to become. * The organization promises to deliver quality product and good management so this is their competitive advantage because the quality and the management make the difference.
This statement sends the clear message to the customers or the target market that quality and management is their core competence. * As we all know that this is the time of globalization. The customer demands and needs are more challenging than the previous times so technological advancements are necessary for the organization. It’s a good thing to include in vision statement because it shows the strength of the organization that they opened their door for technological advancements to fulfill their other vision components. The major portion of the revenue generated by Gulistan is from their exports so they also covered the global prospective by stating that they are committed to deliver more for their customers all over the globe. This also covers that they are targeting the customers not only from Pakistan but all over the globe. * As the core rule of vision that it should be broader so they stated in their vision that they will seek through state of the art technological innovation and continuous improvement in their operations.

Economic * Economic condition of our country is very bad so it has a great impact on industrial sector. * Due to bad economic condition industries are suffering from low profit. * Due to inflation profit of industries is reducing because it impact on industries to increase in prices of products. Bad economic condition results in to reducing number of industries in a country and to unemployment.

Conclusion: Technology has a great impact on the industry. Due to technology, they face new challenges, which check their abilities and improve performance. Gulistan adapts latest ways of technology & is successfully doing their business. PORTER’S MODEL 1. Threats of new entrants The threat of new entrants in the retail industry keeping in view the brands that we have chosen is low.
As the scope of the textile business, Gulistan is providing a vast category of products under one roof. The new entrants face several barriers which primarily includes the high costs involved in starting this business. Secondly the product offered by them is highly differentiated product which also discourages new entrants. With such established brands it becomes very difficult for the new entrants to make a position in the market or capture market share. Thirdly the cost involved in having an exclusive distribution is very high which also serves as a barrier to entry. 2. Threats of substitutes
We are analyzing the threat of substitute can be classified into the following category of: * Local Market * International Market The threat of substitute is medium to low in local market. People might switch brands if they think due to any reason the brand is not providing satisfaction. But on the other hand people who are brand loyal would not think of any substitute. But in the international market the threat of substitutes is pretty high because other industries ; competition. 3. Rivalry among existing firm The rivalry among the textile industry is high, both in the local market and for the international market.
In case of the local market the number of competitors is very large and all moves are competitive. Majority of them are even located in the same areas ; are challenging each other’s positions, taking sales from each other. The international market is also on the competitive moves. Launch of new product by any brand impacts the other brands like the recent launch of Gulistan impacted the sales of other exports ; international brands too. 4. Bargaining power of suppliers The bargaining power of suppliers is high in retail industry as the suppliers can supply to any firm they want.
In international ; local market some industries have multiple suppliers and therefore have great impact on the sales of the business. The products at these stores are differentiated and therefore the switching costs involved are very high. Alongside the substitutes in case of suppliers is also not viable as brand equity is also very important. 5. Bargaining power of buyers The bargaining power of buyers is high in the international market but in case of local markets it is low. The reason for the high bargaining power in local market is * Plentiful alternate suppliers Product not differentiated * Access to substitutable products * Plentiful options for consumers. On the other hand in case of the international market the bargaining power of buyers is low because * Less alternatives * Differentiated product * Changing supplier costs high to the seller Conclusion: As we discussed above the textile industry is very vast in Pakistan the competition in local markets is high because there are many textile companies working here. People have plenty of choices to select between different brands. So companies are competing neck to neck for customer satisfaction.
Quality is the most important to maintain competitive edge over other brands. Globally the competition is also tough because textiles are included in the major exports of Pakistan. Quality and variety both are important in international markets. Gulistan is producing variety of products with supreme quality so they should improve and sustain it to remain in competition.

For this purpose we can analyze the financial statements through the followings ratios: 1.
Liquidity Ratios 2. Activity Ratios 3. Debt Ratios 4. Profitability Ratios 5. Marketability Rations/Efficiency Liquidity Ratios The liquidity of a business firm is measured by its ability to satisfy its short-term obligations as they come due. Liquidity refers to the solvency of the firm’s overall financial position the ease with which it can pay its bills. Basic measures of liquidity are: * Current ratio * Quick ratio By putting the values taken from the annual report of “GULISTAN GROUP OF COMPANIES” in the formulas of above ratios the results are shown in the following table.
Current Ratio = current asset / current liabilities Quick Ratio = current asset – inventory / current liabilities Ratios| 2011| 2010| 2009| Current Ratio| 5657592015 /5872231037= . 96| 4222471024 / 4221143753= 1. 00| 3,170,385,835 /3,125,424,959=1. 01| Quick Ratio| 5657592015-4098001926 /5872231037=. 27| 4222471024-2872063135 / 42211437531=. 32| 3,170,385,835-1891974316 /3,125,424,959=. 41| Current Ratio A current ratio of 2. 0 is occasionally cited as acceptable, but a value’s acceptability depends on the industry in which the firm operates. A current ratio of 1. would be considered acceptable for a utility but might be unacceptable for a manufacturing firm. The ratio in 2011 is below 1. 0 so it is not acceptable. Quick Ratio The quick ratio is similar to the current ratio except that it excludes inventory, which is generally the least liquid current asset. Quick ratio is an extended version of current ratio in which only very quick assets (which can be quickly liquidated) are considered. Quick ratio in 2011 is also low that shows excess of inventory in stock. Activity Ratios Activity ratios are used to measure the speed with which various accounts are converted into sales or cash.
With regard to current accounts, measures of liquidity are generally inadequate Basic measures of activity are: * Inventory turnover * Total asset turnover * Average collection period * Average payment period. Inventory turnover = CGS / Inventory Avg. collection period = A/R / Avg. sale per day Avg. payment period = A/p / Avg. purchase per day Asset turnover = sale / total asset Ratios| 2011| 2010| 2009| Inventory Turnover| 4197948535/4098001926= 1. 02 Times| 4442886796/2872063135=1. 55 Times| 1983953867/1891974316=1. 05 Times| Avg. collection period| 1202179249/14370761. 5=83. 65 Days| 992689190/14190684. 10=69. 95 Days| 896133503/11757625=76. 22 Days| Avg. payment period| 507009956/11435996=44. 33 Days| 428978782/11833817= 36. 25 Days| 250638087/11932214=21 Days| Asset turnover| 5245328111/9277085948=. 57| 5179599697/7821978153=. 56| 4291532961/6639205671=. 65| Interpretation of the Results Inventory Turnover Inventory turnover commonly measure the activity, or liquidity, of a firm’s inventory. Inventory turnover of the company is 1. 02 times in the year 2011 and it has decreased from the last year figure of 1. 55 times. Though here is a decrease in inventory turnover in 2011 but it is best in 2010 as compared to 2011 and 2009. Total Assets Turnover Total assets turnover indicates the efficiency with which the firm uses all its assets to generate sales. Generally, the higher a firm’s total asset turnover, the more efficiently its assets have been used. This measure is probably of greatest interest to management, because it indicates whether the firm’s operations have been financially efficient. Asset turnover in 2009 is high that shows efficient use of assets but it decreased in 2010 and have minor increase in 2011 which is not enough.
Thus it shows inefficiency of the management of the firm to use assets to generate revenues. Average Collection Period Average collection period indicates that how many days are required to collect amount from the trade debts. The earlier the cash is received from the debtors; the better will be for the company. Average collection period of the company has decreased in 2010 as compared to 2009 but it has a great increase in 2011 This shows inefficiency in the collection of Accounts receivable Average Payment Period
Average payment period indicates that after how many days the payment to creditors is made. This time period should be maximum one. But Avg. Collection period for GTM shows gradually an increase in these years that shows efficiency of management to best utilize of resources. Debt Ratios The debt position of a firm indicates the amount of other people’s money being used in attempting to generate profits. In general, the financial analyst is most concerned with long-term benefits, because these commit the firm to paying interest over the long run as well as eventually repaying the principally borrowed.
Because the creditors’ claims must be satisfied before, the distribution of earnings to share holders. Basic measures of debt are: * Debt ratio * Time interest earned ratio Debt Ratio = Total Liabilities / Total Assets Time Interest Earned Ratio = EBIT / Interest Ratios | 2011| 2010| 2009| Debt Ratio | =6031027175/9277085948=65%| 4366370736/7821978153=56%| 3220598874/6639205671=49%| Time Interest Earned Ratio| 860296219/832459296=1. 03| 660050601/535671023=1. 23| 459782158/401355131=1. 4| Interpretation of the Results Debt Ratio The debt ratio measures the proportion of total assets financed by the firm’s creditors. The higher this ratio, the greater the amount of other people’s money being used in an attempt to generate profits. GTM’s debt ratio has increased from year to year. This shows that the company has increased its dependence on the outsider’s sources of finances. This ratio is high than the acceptable limit of 60%.
