  • 1. How Brands Create Value for Customers and Shareholders Presented by: Adnan Galabhai 21077819

2. Introduction

  • Marketing is under fire (Sheth and Sisodia, 1995)
  • Two schools of thought in marketing:
  • One undermines the credibility of brands
  • The other places brands at the centre of value creation
  • To re-affirm the view that brands are top level strategic drivers, marketers need to articulate the customer and shareholder value-creating capabilities of their brands

3. But firstWhat is a brand?

  • Brand is a Value-System
  • Consumer Value Perspective:A brand is a set of mental associations held by the consumer, which add to the perceived value of the product or service (Keller, 1998).
  • Shareholder Value Perspective:A brand is an intangible asset representing a source of current and future earnings of the firm (Hill and Lederer, 2001)

  • Traditional Domain of Marketing: Creation of Customer Value
  • Modern Day Domain: Creation of Shareholder Value
  • Marketers need to speak the language of the CEOs.

SHAREHOLDER VALUE = CORPORATE VALUE LONG TERM DEBT CORPORATE VALUE= FUTURE CASH FLOWS OF THE FIRM Lets see how brands create shareholder value 11. 1. Increasing Cash Flow

  • Higher prices : Consumers willing to pay premium for strong brands Eg. Louis Vuitton
  • Higher volume growth:Strong brands can be leveraged to create brand extensions Eg. Coke Zero
  • Lower Costs:Unit marketing cost lower for market leading brands
  • Higher asset utilization:Brands with high market share can generate economies of scale through larger volume

12. Relationship between Brand Strength and Cash Flow

  • A market share advantage of 3:1 translates into a cash flow advantage of app. 6:1

  • Residual value = Net present value of the business
  • Brands sustain the long-term ability of the business to keep generating cash
  • Coca Cola, Kit-Kat, Cadbury have been around for up to a century
  • Research done by Madden et al. (2006) A $1000 investment in companies in the Worlds Most Valuable Brands (WMB) List generates a return of 4 times vs. only 3 times by the overall stock market
  • Reflects investor confidence in companies with strong brands

14. 3. Reducing the risk associated with cash flow

  • Strong brands are not easy to copy Eg. Apple iPod
  • Brand loyalty promotes stability in cash flow
  • Cost of winning new customers > cost of retaining existing ones

15. Concept of Brand Value

  • Brand Value is the dollar value of a brand, calculated as Net Present Value (NPV), or todays value of the earnings the brand is expected to generate in the future.
  • One method of measurement is the Brand Asset Valuator (BAV): Translates Brand Equity into Financial Value
