Apricum Secures New Investor Habdank for German ASEAN Power Highlighting Strong Interest in Southeast Asia’s Solar Potential

Entering New Markets, Latest News, Environmental Services, Solar October 19, 2016

PRESS RELEASE
Apricum – The Cleantech Advisory, acting as financial advisor to its client Southeast Asian solar developer German ASEAN Power, successfully brings in a key long-term strategic partner, underlining the keen interest in Southeast Asia’s promising solar markets

German ASEAN Power has sold 50% of its company shares to new strategic investor Habdank Group, turnkey PV power plant construction specialists. Habdank was selected after a rigorous investor search conducted by Apricum – The Cleantech Advisory, the Berlin-based transaction and strategy advisory firm specialized in clean technologies. The deal also includes additional funding instruments to support the future development of German ASEAN Power as a leading integrated utility-scale solar power solutions provider solely focused on the Southeast Asian region.

“Southeast Asia is one of the most promising growth regions for renewable energy and solar power in particular, and this was reflected in the high volume of interest we had from potential investors in this opportunity,” said Nikolai Dobrott, managing partner of Apricum. “German ASEAN Power has built a strong position in these relatively new markets, which enables them to benefit from the upcoming announced solar capacity additions.”

The management team of German ASEAN Power, who founded the company in 2015, consists of solar project development specialists with more than a decade of experience and a solid track record in solar project development in emerging markets such as South Korea, China, India, El Salvador and Thailand. The company is currently developing several utility-scale solar power projects with a portfolio size of more than 150 MW in markets such as Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia.

“It was our aim to find a strategic partner who could not only provide additional funding for our current and future pipeline of projects in Southeast Asia, but who could help us expand our internal capabilities from project development to become a fully integrated solar power company with first-rate EPC and O&M services,” said Roland Quast, co-founder and managing director of German ASEAN Power. “From the many prospective strategic partners with whom Apricum facilitated very promising negotiations, in Habdank we found a partner who shares our corporate strategic objective, our emphasis on being an ASEAN organization, and our determination to offer our customers reliable, high-quality solutions.”

“With our strategic investment in German ASEAN Power, we are further increasing our international activities in the solar growth markets of today and the future,” said Oliver Matthes, CEO of Habdank. “After our very successful market entry in Turkey last year, we feel confident that we can bring a lot of valuable experience – especially in the areas of constructing high-quality solar power plants – from this emerging solar market to German ASEAN Power’s projects and customers in Southeast Asia.”

Habdank Group’s investment in German ASEAN Power offers another example of the solar industry’s increasing interest in the promising Southeast Asian renewables markets.

Apricum expects more than 10 GW of additional solar power capacity to be installed in ASEAN’s key markets alone by 2020.

About Apricum
Apricum – The Cleantech Advisory is a globally active transaction advisory and strategy consulting firm focused exclusively on solar, wind, energy storage and integrated renewable energy systems. Established in 2008, Apricum serves investors and companies, both public and private around the world as their independent advisor to help them succeed in the cleantech industry. Apricum is headquartered in Berlin and has representative offices in the UK, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, India, China, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, USA, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina.

About German ASEAN Power
German ASEAN Power is an integrated solar power company focused on the ASEAN region with in-house project development, EPC and O&M services. Although steered and owned by German management and German shareholders, the company is a truly local organization with personnel, technical and equipment resources based in ASEAN markets.

About Habdank Group
Habdank is a privately owned company with a history stretching back 90 years. Since 2004 Habdank has been a leading manufacturer and patent holder of innovative PV solar mounting systems.

Local, Regional, National, International or Global Sales Territories?

Entering New Markets, Marketing Your Company, Export Marketing September 30, 2016

Local, Regional, National, International or Global Sales Territories?

As one would expect, the size and location of a company’s market varies greatly. Local marketers are concerned with customers that tend to be clustered tightly around the marketer. The marketer is able to learn a great deal about the customer and make necessary changes quickly. Naturally, the total potential market is limited. There is also the possibility that a new competitor or environmental factor will put a local marketer out of business.

Regional marketers cover a larger geographic area that may necessitate multiple production plants and a more complex distribution network. While regional marketers tend to serve adjoining cities, parts of states, or entire states, dramatic differences in demand may still exist, requiring extensive adjustments in marketing strategy.

National marketers distribute their product throughout a country. This may involve multiple manufacturing plants, a distribution system including warehouses and privately owned delivery vehicles, and different versions of the marketing “mix” or overall strategy. This type of marketing offers tremendous profit potential, but also exposes the marketer to new, aggressive competitors.

International marketers operate in more than one country. As will become clear later in this book, massive adjustments are normally made in the marketing mix in various countries. Legal and cultural differences alone can greatly affect a strategy’s outcome. As the US market becomes more and more saturated with US-made products, the continued expansion into foreign markets appears inevitable. greatly affect a strategy’s outcome. As the US market becomes more and more saturated with US-made products, the continued expansion into foreign markets appears inevitable.

Global marketing differs from international marketing in some very definite ways. Whereas international marketing means a company sells its goods or services in another country, it does not necessarily mean that the company has made any further commitments. Usually the product is still manufactured in the home country, sold by their people, and the profits are taken back to that country. In the case of Honda Motors, for example, it means building manufacturing plants in the US, hiring local employees, using local distribution systems and advertising agencies, and reinvesting a large percentage of the profits back into the US.

What is TTIP?

Entering New Markets, Marketing Your Company, Export Marketing, Latest News September 24, 2016

What is TTIP?

What is TTIP?

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP, is a trade and investment agreement, which the European Union (EU) is negotiating with the United States. The United States is Europe’s biggest export market.

Customs duties, red tape and restrictions on investment on each side of the Atlantic can make it difficult to buy and sell goods and services on the other. Getting rid of these barriers to trade between the EU and the US would boost mutual economies, create jobs and widen choice and lower prices for consumers.

TTIP is a planned agreement focused on lowering trade tariffs and removing costly regulations on business across the Atlantic. These barriers include labour rights, food safety rules and banking safeguards put into place following the recession.

A key aim of the deal is to open up public services – allowing US firms to bid for private contracts on state-run organisations such as the NHS. David Cameron’s Government failed to declare our health service off limits – despite EU bureaucrats giving nations the power to do so.

The pact could also see private companies suing governments should they enact policies that affect their profits.

TTIP is an agreement specific to the US and the EU.

After the Brexit vote in the UK, any future deal would now not include Britain.

Groups opposing TTIP, claim that Brexit may have left TTIP dead in the water – calling the vote “the killer blow to the deal across Europe”.

With Britain representing 16% of the EU market, senior figures are waiting to see what relationship the UK will have with the EU.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have said they will scrap the doomed US-EU deal, and have both spoke of the importance of striking a UK partnership.

A shift in tact for the US Government, urging the need for a new trade deal to be done “as fast as possible”.

Such a pact will be impossible until Britain has triggered Article 50 – which is not expected to happen until early next year.

By that time the US will have a new president in either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, who will replace Mr Kerry with their own staff.

It will be down to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox to negotiate a deal with Mr Kerry’s replacement.

T-TIP is far from being close and far from being certain.

Marketing Opportunities in Arts, Crafts & Gifts

Arts, Crafts & Gifts

China and India—along with several other Asian countries—currently dominate art, crafts, handicraft production worldwide, and are likely to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Their position is based largely on low-cost, high volume, Western-designed goods.
Many buyers and consumers however seek unique products made in countries other than China. While the market for purely indigenous designs is limited, “global style”—products that combine ethnic elements with contemporary designs—is a growing category and represents an opportunity for art and handicraft producers.
Low-end (priority on low prices) and high-end (priority on high quality) markets are expanding, while the middle (moderate quality at moderate prices) is relatively stagnant. Whereas competition at the low end is strong and requires significant production capacity, the “luxury” market tends to focus more on distinctive designs, higher quality, and smaller quantities with greater flexibility in pricing.
Distribution channels in end markets are shortening. Large and, increasingly, mid-size retailers are importing directly, while small (and many of the mid-size) retailers continue to purchase merchandise principally, or entirely, from domestic wholesale importers. As this trend continues, many wholesale importers are losing important clients and many independent retailers are struggling to compete in a marketplace dominated by lower-priced “big-box” stores. However, there is evidence that savvy small retailers can compete with distinctive, high-end products. It is important to note that the vast majority of importers, both wholesale and retail, rely on the services of foreign exporters and agents, which many market experts see as critical to the success of arts and handicrafts in developing countries.

Agricultural marketing techniques

Entering New Markets, Marketing Your Company, Export Marketing September 24, 2016

Agricultural marketing techniques

Agricultural marketing techniques are used in every corner of “agribusiness,” including small farms, corporate farms, and collectives; distributors; manufacturers of farm equipment, pesticides, and genetic enhancements for crops and livestock; feed and seed sellers; and more. Additionally, there are also government agencies which monitor and direct agribusiness practices.

  • Farmers seek higher prices for their produce, and protection from price fluctuations. They try to reduce the amount of post-harvest waste, and secure guarantees for the sale of their produce. They may also work to open up new markets or channels, such as selling directly to consumers instead of through producers.
  • Agrichemical companies promote solutions to farm problems, offering farmers higher yields and protection from pests. However, many solutions would be more strongly resisted by consumers, if it weren’t for effective public relations.
  • Government agencies at both the federal and state level campaign for farm production. The USDA Agricultural Marketing Service runs a number of different programs to promote farm sales (and prices). The agriculture-rich state of California produces some $30 billion dollars’ worth of agricultural products annually, and is one of the largest food exporters in the world. To protect this investment, the state has government-mandated programs covering about 66 percent of its agricultural production.
  • Agricultural products are perishable; therefore, a failure to sell on time results in wasted harvest. All wasted harvest represents a cost of land, water, labor, storage—and no income to show for it.
  • Agricultural prices can be quite variable, impacted by changes in weather and harvests in far corners of the world.
    Different production methods mean that not all food is the same—but this information is meaningful only if the consumer knows about it.

What is NAFTA? How can I make NAFTA work for my business?

Entering New Markets, Marketing Your Company, Export Marketing, Listings September 23, 2016

What is the Nafta Trade Agreement

In 1994, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) came into effect, creating one of the world’s largest free trade zones and laying the foundations for strong economic growth and rising prosperity for Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Since then, NAFTA has demonstrated how free trade increases wealth and competitiveness, delivering real benefits to families, farmers, workers, manufacturers, and consumers.

The NAFTA partners have created this website to provide Canadians, Americans, and Mexicans with information about how NAFTA works and the many ways in which it has improved the lives of North Americans.

1. What is NAFTA?
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a comprehensive trade agreement that sets the rules of trade and investment between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Since the agreement entered into force on January 1, 1994, NAFTA has systematically eliminated most tariff and non-tariff barriers to free trade and investment between the three NAFTA countries.

2. How does NAFTA work?
NAFTA is a formal agreement that establishes clear rules for commercial activity between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. NAFTA is overseen by a number of institutions that ensure the proper interpretation and smooth implementation of the Agreement’s provisions. For more information about NAFTA trilateral institutions, please see About NAFTA.

3. What are the benefits of NAFTA?
Since NAFTA came into effect, trade and investment levels in North America have increased, bringing strong economic growth, job creation, and better prices and selection in consumer goods. North American businesses, consumers, families, workers, and farmers have all benefited. For more information about NAFTA’s many benefits, please see: Results: North Americans Are Better Off After 15 years of NAFTA.

4. How can I make NAFTA work for my business?
NAFTA provides North American businesses with better access to materials, technologies, investment capital, and talent available across North America. For examples of companies that are succeeding under NAFTA, please see Success Stories.

5. What are the NAFTA rules of origin?
Each NAFTA country forgoes tariffs on imported goods “originating” in the other NAFTA countries. Rules of origin enable customs officials to decide which goods qualify for this preferential tariff treatment under NAFTA. The negotiators of the Agreement sought to make the rules of origin very clear so as to provide certainty and predictability to producers, exporters, and importers. They also sought to ensure that NAFTA’s benefits are not extended to goods imported from non-NAFTA countries that have undergone only minimal processing in North America.

6. How do I obtain a NAFTA certificate of origin?
The procedures for presenting a claim to each NAFTA partner are different. To certify that goods qualify for the preferential tariff treatment under NAFTA, the exporter must complete a certificate of origin. A producer or manufacturer may also complete a certificate of origin to be used as a basis for an exporter’s certificate of origin. To make a claim for NAFTA preference, the importer must possess a certificate of origin at the time the claim is made.

Further information on Customs procedures can be obtained by contacting the Customs administrations of each NAFTA country. For more information, please visit the Canada Border Services Agency, U.S. International Trade Administration, or Mexico’s Ministry of the Economy (Spanish only).

7. Who is permitted temporary entry into another NAFTA country under the NAFTA rules?
Chapter 16 of NAFTA permits the temporary cross-border movement of business travelers within the NAFTA region. Four categories of travelers are eligible for temporary entry from one NAFTA country into another: business visitors, traders and investors, intra-company transferees, and professionals.

8. How did NAFTA affect tariff rates within North America?
On January 1, 2008, the last remaining tariffs were removed within North America. When implemented, NAFTA immediately lifted tariffs on the majority of goods produced by the NAFTA partners and called for the phased elimination, over 15 years, of most remaining barriers to cross-border investment and to the movement of goods and services between the three countries.

9. How can I obtain information on NAFTA Custom procedures?
Information on Customs procedures can be obtained by contacting the Customs administrations of each NAFTA country. For more information, please visit: Canada Border Services Agency, U.S. International Trade Administration, and Mexico’s Ministry of the Economy (Spanish only).

Whether you’re talking about utilities, technology, personnel, professional services or raw materials, for the people and companies who would like to sell these products and services to you, the fact that you have a need for them is extremely valuable. In fact, most companies would pay significantly for this information; just as you would probably be willing to pay to find out who needs your company’s products or services, right? ABC Leads & Projects Informations allows you to post your own company’s needs (and other information) to an online database in order to get access to other companies’ needs (and other information that you might want)?

That is: Is knowing who needs your company’s products or services so important that you would be willing to tell other people what products and services you need?
