“Havells is not shy of investing in unrelated field. The acquisition marks the beginning of our entry into the healthcare segment. We have spent over Rs 20 cr for the acquisition and are investing an equal amount in expanding the existing facilities in the hospital. In the next phase, we are likely to go for more such facilities”
-- Qimat Rai Gupta

How Strategic the acquisition was?
• Can keep existing manufacturing facilities in Europe, but will create additional capacities in low cost India • Havells substitute Chinese export to Sylvania • Havells will leverage Sylvania distribution in Europe, USA and Latin • America for margin rich switch gear products • Sylvania R & D practices can transform Havells • Havells can use Sylvania multi brand strategy for different markets


Strategic Management


Straight from the horses mouth
"Sylvania's acquisition is a first step towards attaining leading position in the global lighting industry with a strong presence in the developed markets of Europe and high growth Latin American markets. This acquisition will provide us a platform with strong brands and established distribution channels on which Havells can build on. Further, the management team responsible for SLI Sylvania's turnaround will continue to remain with the business and grow the combined organization"

Mr. Paul Griswold, CEO SLI Sylvinia 26/8/2009

"The management team is extremely excited about the Transaction and believes that SLI Sylvania is well-poised to effectively exploit the opportunities ahead with significant synergies to be realized by the combined organization"

Strategic Management


SWOT Analysis
• International approvals • World class infrastructure • Leveraging upon Sylvinia network (10000 distributor). • Global presence (Latin America, UK, Europe) • Largest manufacturing capacity . • R & D facilities.

• High debt ratio. • Globally small Market share • Slowdown of real estates • Slowdown in global markets will effect more adversely now after Sylvania acquisition.


• Global opportunities. • Acquisition of Chinese firms for low cost manufacturing. • Vertical integration into Havells retail outlets. • Leveraging upon motor business in India.

• Unorganized market. • Unrelated diversification • Global slowdown effected business adversely as is largely dependent on Sylvania. • Delays in execution of power projects


Strategic Management


• Plans for acquisition of Chinese firms. • Opened a representative office in Shanghai in a bid to penetrate into the fast growing Chinese electrical equipment market. • Tremendous focus on global market. • Low market share globally, thus miles to go ahead.

But the Question………………… Is the mighty falling into an unfocussed business or is sensibly venturing into unrelated diversification? Is still unanswered……..
