Executive Summary

The purpose of this study was to show how Nishat linen can enhance their performance. It was
a Business research study that looked at how they satisfied their customers by providing them
products that satisfied their needs.

Nishat has grown from a cotton export house into the premier business group of Pakistan.
Today, Nishat is considered to be at par with multinationals operating locally in terms of its
quality products and management skills. The company is free from the energy crisis because it
has set up its own power generation units that are not even fulfilling the energy requirement of
Nishat mills but they are also selling this to Government. Nishat is running different business
with different famous products like Nishat Linen that has opened its outlets in major cities of
Pakistan.

The financial ratio analysis shows that the company is enjoying good profits and is consistently
running its operations even in the conditions when the country is passing through critical
conditions.

The PEST analysis shows that company has lived away from any kind of complications that
may have affect the company’s goodwill by fulfilling the legal, environmental requirements
and using international financial rules in the production of financial statements.

The SWOT analysis depicts that strengths are greater in number as compared to weaknesses
and threats that shows the company does well know its position and keep the system up to date.
Still there are some lacks that company should overcome to get ultimate results.

Industry Analysis

SWOT analysis for Nishat:

Strengths

 One of the first few brands to launch bed linen in Pakistan.


 Strong product diversification.
9
Page
UNIVERSITY OF EDUCATION August 16, 2019

 Outlets in nearly every city of Punjab and three outlets in Karachi which is also the
business capital.
 Freedom to buy
 Strong product development and most significantly according to all the seasons.
 Affiliation with a professional designer Mahin Khan.
 Organized records of customer database.
 Valuable services to all its loyal and first time customers by offering discount cards and
membership cards.
 Limited designs for both fabrics and linen are sold in the market for every season that
creates differentiation of their product.

Weaknesses

 Nishat linen does not carry out exhibitions therefore customers have little knowledge
about their products with respect to their competitors.
 All the promotional strategies are focused on fabrics as it is their star product. Bed linen
gets little promotional campaign.

Opportunities

 Nishat linen can look to get affiliated with more big design houses/established
designers.
 Publish their own catalogues for bed linen and fabric and put them at different book
stores so that customers have easy access to their designs.
 Nishat can get into western clothing line which will give them an edge over their
competitors.
 They should look to open an outlet in an area like North Nazimabad where the market
has a lot of potential and people have the purchasing power as well.

Threats

 Strong promotional campaigns of competitors producing fabrics through exhibitions.


 Fabric designs of their competitors are available at other retail stores as well where as
their fabrics are available at their outlets only.
 Most of their bed linens is exported therefore the local market tend to suffer where as
their competitors like ideas and Chen One are more focused on the local market gaining
competitive advantage.

BCG Matrix for Nishat


10

 Star:
Page
UNIVERSITY OF EDUCATION August 16, 2019

Nishat’s Star unit, undoubtedly, is Nishat, their clothing line for women. It is a unit that
sells throughout the year and as quoted by the Manager of their Clifton outlet, “Nishat
sells at the same rate even during times of recession”. According to him, Nishat has
experienced more profit during recession because of continued high sales of their
clothing line for women. Launched in 2004, Nishat grew by leaps and bounds and now
stands alongside brands like Gul Ahmed, Lakhani and Al-Karam. It has been
categorized as a Star product line of Nishat as the market for women fabric and apparel
is huge, ever growing and presents quite a lot of potential. It has a high market share
due to its exclusivity and quality that distinguishes it from its competition. As a
consequence, it requires heavy investment to support its image as a brand with an
attitude.
 Cash Cows:
Nishat’s bed & kitchen linen and accessories can be categorized as the cash cows with
which it earns a healthy and steady cash flow throughout the year. The market demand
for bed and kitchen linen, though not dynamic, has always been there with a sustained
and limited potential for growth. Nishat, with its unique and discerning image, has
managed to capture a significant share of this slow-growing market, relative to its
competitors like Ideas by Gul Ahmed, Identity by Al-Karam and of course, Chen One.
Its bed linen is not only in high demand locally but is also one of its major imports.
 Question Mark:
Naqsh, the clothing line of Nishat for men, can be categorized as its Problem Child or
Question Mark. It’s a unit that hasn’t shown much potential and as a result hasn’t
managed to gain as much market share or generate as much cash as was expected and
required of it. The market for eastern wear for men has seen a rapid growth since the
past few years and presents so much of unexplored potential. With every designer
coming up with an exclusive clothing line for men, Naqsh faces serious competition
from not only Gul Ahmed and Al-Karam but other market leaders such as Amir Adnan,
Junaid Jamshed and Rizwan Beyg etc. To survive in such a fiercely competitive and
fast-growing market, Naqsh requires heavy investments to hold its ground but hasn’t
managed to succeed in gaining enough market shares as yet.

Pest Analysis:

Macro environmental forces may disturb or affect any company in the world. These forces
called pest stands for political, environmental, social and technological.

1. Political factors:
Due to the unsustainable political and legal factors of Pakistan the current situation is
not satisfactory for this industrial giant. Changing in the government after every 2 or 3
years is a big issue and after that every government implements its own trade policies
11

which are great problems. Government should apply sustainable policies for the
beneficial of the exporters as well as the investors.
Page

2. Economic situations:
UNIVERSITY OF EDUCATION August 16, 2019

The global economic recession also put the negative impression on the economy of
Pakistan and disturbed it badly. Prices of the commodities have gone up and which
minimize the people purchasing power. The economic condition of Pakistan is not good
as well. Inflation rate is increasing rapidly and the high cost of production not attracting
the foreign investors and thus reduce the profit margin of the investors and the
stakeholders as well.
3. Social change:
Rapidly increasing inflation rate has disturbed the lifestyle of the people and hence has
affected the growing demand of the Nishat textile mills (NTM) products
4. Technological situation:
As the advanced technology is being used by every company in the world. It just
disturbed a small portion of the industry but the NTM has very good equipment’s
imported from different countries. So position from technological point of view is
satisfactory as compared to the others.

Porter forces model:

Five forces model is helpful to analysis an industry’s competitive environment, and the
powerful tool which helps to understand the business situation.

1. Supplier’s Bargaining Power:


Supplier bargaining power is affecting the Nishat mills profit. Because of inflation the
prices have gone up and the raw material as well. So this powerful bargaining hitting
the profit badly of NTM.
2. New Entrance Threat:
This is a threat which every organization faces. Keeping them save from this threat they
use a scale of economies so that the cost can be reduced and product differentiation can
be maintained.
3. Buyers Bargaining Power:
Bargaining power of the buyer is helping to reduce the profit ratio of the NTM because
they want discount in the products and insist for the more which is helping to minimize
the margin ratio.
4. Substitute’s Threat:
Substitute products are available in the market and creating the problems for the Nishat
textile mills. So such kind of threats are available both at national and international
market.
5. Rivalry Between Existing Competitors:
This is strong threat to the company’s profit ratio and market goodwill. Both nationally
and internationally the competitors are very strong and beating to each other in
everything. So this is the strongest threat for the NTM and they will have to consider it
12

as a first priority threat for the survival.
