Asahimas Flat Glass Tbk. P.T. AND THE TWO: Global Gap Analysis And Labor Productivity Benchmarks Published

SAN DIEGO, CA -ICON Group International Ltd. on 13 September 2006 released two of the most comprehensive studies to date on vertical gap analysis and labor productivity benchmarks for Asahimas Flat Glass Tbk.


The methodologist for this unique study is Philip Parker, Eli Lilly Chair Professor of Innovation, Business and Society at INSEAD (Fontainebleau, France and Singapore). According to Professor Parker “We created these reports in response to two inescapable trends: a return to fundamentals and globalization.” The goal of these reports is to assist consultants, financial managers, strategic planners, and corporate officers in gauging indicators of Asahimas Flat Glass Tbk. P.T.’s financial and human resource structure.

The Report has benchmarked Asahimas Flat Glass Tbk. P.T. against competing firms in the Stone, Clay, Glass and Concrete Products Manufacturing industry worldwide—going beyond traditional methods of company benchmarking. The results are two specialized reports: (1) global financial benchmarks using common-size statement ratios (vertical analysis), and (2) labor-productivity and utilization measures collected across borders. Parker notes, “With the globalization of markets, greater foreign competition, and the reduction of barriers to entry, it becomes all the more important to benchmark a company’s financial indicators on a worldwide basis.”

Professor Parker states, "We are intrigued by the wide variations in basic financial and productivity measures between Asahimas Flat Glass Tbk. P.T. and other Stone, Clay, Glass and Concrete Products Manufacturingcompanies. The Earnings Before Interest And Taxes (EBIT), for example, varied from -9.28 to 55.81. We see this type of variation in the hundreds of ratios that we estimate.”
