Originally a success story but now encountering some problems

Tiffany Li's curator insight, April 24, 2014 3:38 PM

KFC was predicting that the decrease in sales of KFC would turn around in the summer 2013. Sadly, they were wrong. KFC's profit has been down 68%. A decrease sales leads to a decrease in aggregate demand because people are wanting to buy less which would also lead to a decrease in GDP and price level.

Explaination of Tesco's decision to sell its Chinese business into a new joint venture with CRE. Left with a 20% stake and had to invest £300m+ into the JV; but at least it limits Tesco's losses in China.

Mr Jones's curator insight, January 29, 2014 6:43 AM

Why has it taken Tesco 10 year to refine its strategy? What advantages do they hope for from the new approach? Who paid who in the creation of this new joint venture?

 

tutor2u's insight:

A nice short summary here of Tesco's decision to sell its Chinese business into a new joint venture with CRE. Left with a 20% stake and had to invest £300m+ into the JV; but at least it limits Tesco's losses in China and enables it to focus attention back here in the UK.
