FINANCING IN RETAIL

Should your business lease or buy equipment?

E

ach business is unique and the decision to buy or lease is made on a caseby-case basis. Leasing equipment can be a good option for business owners who have limited capital or need equipment that must be upgraded every few years, while purchasing can be a better option for established businesses or for equipment that have a long usable life.

passes the burden of obsolescence onto the lessor. One is free to lease new, higherend equipment after the lease expires.

Advantages of Leasing Equipment Leasing business equipment and tools preserves capital and provides flexibility but may cost more in the long run.

Disadvantages Leasing an item is almost always expensive than outright of purchasing the equipment/assets.

The primary advantage of leasing business equipment is that it allows you to acquire assets with minimal initial expenditure. Because equipment leases rarely require a down payment, one can obtain the goods he needs without significantly affecting his cash flow. Thirdly, lease payments are usually deducted as business expenses on one’s tax return, reducing the net cost of the lease.

Leasing doesn’t mean ownership; neither does one own it nor builds equity in the equipment. Unless the equipment has become obsolete by the end of the lease and you are given the option to buy the assets at residual value.

Leases are usually easier to obtain and have more flexible terms than loans for buying equipment. This can be a significant advantage if one has a bad credit or needs to negotiate a longer payment plan to lower his costs. Leasing allows businesses to address the problem of obsolescence. If one uses his lease to obtain items that may be outdated in a short period of time, such as computers or other high-tech equipment, a lease

Leasing helps the liquidity position of the organization and lowering tax payable by the company hence improving the capex ratios thus improving the borrowing powers of the entity based of financial records

Still, one is obligated to make payments for the entire lease period even if he stops using the equipment and in cases leases are given the option to cancel the lease if the business changes direction and the equipment leased is no longer necessary, but this option may also attract some termination fees based on leaser’s agreement. Buying Equipment The most obvious advantage of buying business equipment is that you gain ownership of it. This is especially true when the property has a long useful life and is not likely to become technologically outdated in the near future.

INSIGHT RETAIL #10 | MAY 15TH – AUG 15TH, 2015

Still, the higher initial expense for some people, purchasing business equipment may not be an option because the initial cash outlay is too high. Even if one plans to borrow the money and make monthly payments, most financial institutions require a down payment of around 20 percent. Borrowing money may also tie up lines of credit, and lenders may place restrictions on one’s future financial operations to ensure that one is able to repay the loan. Although ownership is perhaps the biggest advantage to buying business equipment, it can also be a disadvantage. If one purchases high-tech equipment, he runs the risk that the equipment may become technologically obsolete, forcing him to reinvest in new equipment long before as planned. Certain business equipment has very little resale value. Buy or Lease? When deciding whether to buy or lease a particular piece of business equipment, try to figure out the approximate net cost of that asset. Be sure to factor in tax breaks and resale value when making this calculation. After determining which option is more cost-effective, consider other intangibles such as the possibility that the product will become obsolete (if you are considering purchasing) or that your need for the product will expire before the lease does (if you are considering leasing).

RETAIL TROLLEYS

What’s all the fuss about a shopping trolley? M

ost people think that a trolley is a trolley is a trolley. But to us it’s like saying all cars are built the same. Cape Gate has been delivering quality wire products to the retail industry since 1929 and we believe that a lot more goes into building a quality trolley than meets the eye. The structural design of a trolley is paramount and requires rigorous testing. Cape Gate offers a complete range of tried and tested designs of the highest quality steel and superior welding. In addition the steel is electroplated and coated with a durable clear lacquer. On each of our specially designed trolleys we took care to stipulate the correct wire diameter and wire spacing to meet specific retail requirements. The load-bearing base of a trolley is all important and has been given special attention from our structural engineer. The back gate of Cape Gate’s single basket trolleys is of superior design and fit. Then, one of the most important aspects of a quality trolley is its castors and wheels. Cape Gate uses only the finest TENTE castors and wheels that houses precision bearings in 2.5mm metal housing for the smoothest and most reliable performance. A quality brand is one that has stood the test of time and Cape Gate is one of South Africa’s market leaders in the steel industry with over 85 years of

DISPENSING IN RETAIL

Technological Trends In Dispensing

K

enya is known as Africa’s most developed retail market thanks to the like minded individuals who drive the force to impact others by finding solutions that make a difference in people’s day- to -day lives. This is through Innovations in business models which have increasingly revolutionized the way business is done, therefore, building a sustainable advantage in a market place defined by unrelenting changes and trends, escalating customer demands and a wave of competitiveness that a retailer should keep up with to gain an edge in strategically capturing the demands of the consumers. One of the innovations driving the growth is the dispensing technology which was introduced in 2007 by Antonio Magnaghi’ and other industry stakeholders. This technology was intended to give solutions to farmers where they could readily sell their produce and to the locals who could buy products at a cost effective price. The dispensers come in different varieties. For example, 1. Milk dispensers – This improves the quality of milk and makes it safer for consumption as compared to table- top vendors.

The milk is also pasteurized and there are lesser chances of cross contamination because no one comes in contact with the milk. The concept has been appreciated and an uptake of daily milk consumption has risen from 12,000 liters to Over 100,000 liters per day. 2. Cooking oil – This includes corn oil, sun flower oil, olive oil and all the other liquid oils available in the market. This concept is useful because consumers have the opportunity to buy based on the amount of money they have. This technology brings a healthy option because there are no heat extractions from the oil. 3. Soap – This mostly targets home owners who use fabric softeners, dish washers and all other home use applications. 4. Water – Water is the most essential commodity in a human’s life but sometimes the availability of this product is wanting. Water dispensers have brought the ease of accessing it at any purchase either in large or small quantities. There is also the preference of acquiring it either hot or cold. 5. Juices – This presents the consumer with a multitude of varieties to choose from but the most common is the three flavor multidispenser.

6. Honey – the quality of honey to consumers is very important. The dispensers are a guarantee that the product is fresh and of high quality. “The success of the Dispensing concept in Kenya for any business is to understand the customer needs and have constant & quality supply of the products.” Effective innovation integrates an understanding of how consumers live, buy and use products. Overcoming distribution challenges will depend on how consumers will appreciate the concepts of new combinations of products that are easy and readily accessible, customized and personalized to meet the consumers demand. For dispensing technologies and as the pioneer of the concept he is looking at the advancement of his technology to offer even more. For instance; • Prepaid solutions where consumers can use recharged cards and loyalty cards. • Barcode systems which will generate labels scanned at the point of sale. • Remote controls system that will provide back office connectivity. • Consumers can still buy through their smart phones, Pc’s and tablets.

RETAIL TRENDS

The formal retail has come of age Nothing but a bright outlook in the retail space

By Thiagarajan Ramamurthy

of informal retail players to the formal space. Through a Retail sector development policy, Mama Mboga, will get the deserved recognition and support for her endeavours.

I

n the last three decades, formal retail operators in Kenya appear to have grown from strength to strength. The local operators have effectively managed to scratch the surface placing the country on a very good position as far as the continental retail space is concerned. Basing my arguments on the Kenya Economic Survey 2015 that indicates that the country’s GDP expanded by 5.3% in 2014, it’s crystal clear that the retail sector is fast emerging as a key economic growth pillar. It is no mean feat for the Wholesale and Retail trade sector to be managing an 8.2% share to GDP and 9.8% contribution to GDP growth. This clearly means that this is a sector which is now in the top three echelons of the most important growth contributors in this economy after the Agricultural, forestry and construction sectors which are contributing 14.5% and 11.1% growth. Economics aside, there’s no denying that the local retail sector has produced some of the most formidable home grown retail entrepreneurs’ ready to conquer the continent. Ours is a market that is growing both vertically and horizontally with retail emerging as a lifestyle need.

The success and sustainability of the retail, business depends on its positioning and the differentiation it creates on an ongoing basis. Since the market is very dynamic and open to the world, it is critical for the existing businesses to keep pace with the technology and the fashion trends which determine the future.

n Peel fruit juices produced by Kevian Industries in Kenya. By far, Farmers Choice products stand; head over shoulders above many of their global peers. Small wonder then that formal retail growth brings a lot of augmented benefits to the economy. From direct and indirect employment opportunities, local manufacturing, value addition to fostering regional trade and cohesion.

More and more customers are choosing a destination for shopping with complementary entertainment, food, banking, medical, and other services. This has spurred the growth of malls with huge investments in real estate development.

On another front, the retail sector is also fuelling real estate development and consequent business growth for the property development, building and construction industry.

It has also opened up an opportunity for branded food outlets, and related services to similarly follow the trend and grow on, to become reputable chains. Indeed, restaurants and pharmaceutical retail chains are following this trend.

Kenyan retailers have been very aggressive in terms of expansion and adopting the global best practices to position themselves strongly in the region. They have established unique supply chain models which can sustain their future expansion.

Attesting to the fast growth of the sector, the formal retail has improved the quality of Kenyan produce, packaging and development of various new retail categories and products. Indeed faced by the stringent demands of a globalized consumer, most of the locally manufactured products are now benchmarked against leading global brands.

There’s no denying that in the next five to ten years, the local formal retail penetration is likely to top the 30% mark with revenues of more than US$ 8billion per year. The informal retail players will continue to dominate the retail space. However, the formulation and adoption of a Retail Sector Development Policy by the government can help transform the retail sector.

In some markets, the local brands dominate over the global brands. For an example, WhiteDent Toothpaste in Tanzania and Pick

Such a policy complete with realistic incentives for local retailers can further help to catapult and accelerate the transformation

INSIGHT RETAIL #10 | MAY 15TH – AUG 15TH, 2015

More and more people becoming brand and price conscious, the retailers have no option but to explore cost effective supply chain partners with a handful of franchises to cater to its customers. The ALL UNDER ONE ROOF, concept makes sense to the customers which inspires retailers to open up hyper stores. Customers, increasingly armed with a global viewpoint will continue looking for convenience in terms of location, time, and parking facilities, besides the retail brand which is customer centric and stock products to fulfil their needs. In the retail race, the winning retailer will always be the brand which… • Connects with its customers and value their patronage. • Is serious about its social obligations. • Spurs economic growth. • Make sense to its customers. • Believes in loyalty and offering the best value proposition. • Differentiates itself from others. • Connects with the community at large. • Is credible. • Growth strategy is sustainable. • Has a vision.

“The future of retail business is not only looking at the numbers but it’s positioning for growth and sustainability with core values”

UGANDA RETAIL OUTLOOK

The Advent of Retail Industry in Uganda

By Martin Okumu - Head of Communication Department, Uganda National Chamber of Commerce & Industry

K

ampala residents were not used to security checks when going for shopping. This changed with the advent of shopping malls in the early 2000s when South African giantShoprite opened its first mall at the busy Ben Kiwanuka and Entebbe Roads junction in Kampala, followed by the entry of many Kenya based outlets: Uchumi, Nakumatt and Tuskys among others which has changed the retail landscape in Uganda’s Major towns. Our local retailer has not being left out on the transformational changes in retail as witnessed by Capital Shoppers, Standard Supermarket and Quality Supermarket over recent years. Shopping malls are on the rise in Kampala and security has become a major concern both to the shopper and retailer especially after terror attacks that have been witnessed in the region. It has become important to set up security measures like the use of cameras, metal detectors and alarms. This facilitates monitoring of customers moving in and out of the shopping malls and secures the goods displayed while the use of barcodes in retail has also been beneficial to the retailer to improve efficiency in operation and theft prevention measure. It is said that change is inevitable and so are skeptics. While others appreciate the efforts to bring security, a few have invented myths about the metal detectors at the entrance to malls attributing it to causing cancer and other bodily harms. This clearly indicates poor consumer awareness.

Mr. Martin Okumu, Head of Communication Department UNCCI receiving a certifiate from Mr. Titus Korir Director Insight Retail East Africa Limited during the 1st Retailers forum in Kampala - Uganda.

It is for this reason that Uganda National Chamber of Commerce & Industry together with Insight Retail East Africa organized a workshop recently for the Retail business community in Kampala to educate them on the usefulness of adopting technology in regard to automation and security aspect for retailers to adopt and get more information on current trends globally, not forgetting experiences shared by retailers like Nakumatt/Uchumi / New City & Standard Supermarket, Ebenezer Stores, Divine & Sun Mutual Supermarket among others not forgetting Solution providers which included Security world Technology Ltd, Hipora Business solutions, Compulynx Ltd and Nairobi Kitchen Care/Kampala Kitchen Care among others. As we experience economic growth, there is no way we can avoid automation, electronic monitoring devices and machines generally to expedite retail,

especially in big shopping malls for the mutual benefits of the Investor’s and Shoppers/customers. In conclusion, we will work hand in hand with all partners both in the public and private sectors to ensure that we build capacity for our trades across the Ten(10) districts in Uganda and thanks for the Initiative by Insight Retail East Africa for we believe the same will drive the adverse growth in the country to transform Informal to formal business operations if owners of the business will uptake the knowledge gained in the conferences or workshops to improve their businesses to operate effectively and efficiency by adopting current technology solutions such as Inventory management/Automation through to point of sale (POS), Security solutions, Deploy innovative diversification in retail like Bakery, Deli’s and getting to hear from the peer retailers on experience which they have deployed in years to build success.

too many products is a high cause of food contamination and also one would rather have a menu they have mastered and give the consumer the right quality of the item which will guarantee loyalty from customers who will even come from far because they prefer that item.

Antonio Magnaghi’, the pioneer in Kenya has successfully built a business model for his products in In-store bakery and ingredients for food innovations, thus enabling him to enjoy a good return from his investments.

It is important to develop a formulation process for your product; clear strategic plot of how you are going to prepare the product. The application of this in store service should be of standard and well understood by its partakers.

On the other hand, it is important for retailers to remember that, using locally available raw materials creates consumer acceptability of the product as opposed to the use of foreign elements which lack a local taste unless your target is the foreigner. As an expert in research, development and application, Antonio emphasizes on the need to embrace modern and efficient equipment. The choice of the right equipment is ultimate to warrant for optimum results. This is critical in achieving quality, quantity and efficiency.

UGANDA RETAIL OUTLOOK [Across the East African region, the Pearl of Africa country of Uganda is fast emerging as a retail investor’s destination of choice. Insight Retail East Africa caught up with, Nakumatt Uganda Limited, Country Leader, Mr. Sameer Shah during the recent 1st Edition of Retailers Forum held at Hotel Africana in Kampala who shared with us some of the insights that have made Nakumatt a runaway success in Uganda.] What is the background to Nakumatt establishment and when did you begin operations in Uganda? Established in 1987, we have shaped and built our business on our founding principles of providing a variety of affordable, quality brands as well as excellent and superior service to our customers. Our formats include convenience stores, supermarkets and hypermarkets. We serve over 100,000 customers per day and offer a range of over 75,000 products. At Nakumatt Holdings, we passionately believe in active social engagement with our customers and our environment, and have ensured it constitutes a core part of our business. We continue to spearhead various community development projects in health, entrepreneurship, sports, culture, environment, education and urban restoration. We have worked hard to build solid relationships with our customers, employees, suppliers, corporate partners and with the East African community at large. This has contributed to our impressive roll of honour, which includes prestigious and coveted local and international accolades. What is the capital portfolio, and how many people do you employ in Uganda? Nakumatt’s capital portfolio is currently privately held thus not publicly declared. However, we have directly invested more than US$ 20 million in establishing and aligning all our 8 branches to Nakumatt standards. Nakumatt Uganda, officially opened its round the clock business in April 2009 with our flagship store opening at the Oasis Mall. Back then, our initial investment was valued at more than US$3Million. In 2010, we managed to further expand our services after acquiring former Payless Supermarkets branches at Bukoto and Bugolobi. Since then, we have extended our footprint Mbarara and Entebbe and also enhanced our Kampala operations. We have also invested heavily in skills transfer programmes, supplier market development programmes as well as statutory remittances in terms of taxes and revenues both to the local government and the exchequer. Our commitment is to continue investing in Uganda as a tribute to the overwhelming support extended by the beloved Uganda citizens. By all means, we are the fastest growing retailer in Uganda thanks to our

loyal customers support. Across the region, Nakumatt Holdings currently operates 53 branches across East Africa. We have a staffing force of more than 7,500 team members employed directly making us one of the largest formal employers in this region. What were some of the major reasons that influenced you to spread wings to Uganda? Nakumatt, was attracted to Uganda, primarily by the conducive investment climate and stable economic policies which are constantly under review. Our attraction was also based on our commitment to support the ongoing East Africa Community integration ideals. What major unique products and services does Nakumatt offer to Ugandans? Nakumatt Uganda, enjoys a number of unique selling points that easily places it many steps ahead of our competitors. Firstly, we maintain a one price policy across all our branches. This means you can enjoy competitive prices whether shopping at Nakumatt Bukoto, Nakumatt Bugolobi Nakumatt Entebbe or any other Nakumatt branch. At the same time, Nakumatt customers enjoy the advantages of the best loyalty scheme in Africa otherwise known as the Nakumatt Smart Card. The Nakumatt Smart Card loyalty programme is the most advanced customer reward

system which allows our customers to enjoy smart points for their purchases. These points can be redeemed against a variety of products and services including school fees cheques. We are also the only retailer who maintains 24Hour branch operations offering real shopping convenience. Within the region, we are also consciously promoting the use of reusable bags as part of our environmental conservation and sustainability plans. On the other end, we take pride that we maintain an unmatched degree of customer service only achieved through continuous training of our staffers to maintain global customer service levels. How do you ensure that all your products are genuine and up to the required standards? At Nakumatt Uganda, we have adopted world-class quality standards which are integrated in all our processes. This fact is attested by our ISO 9001:2008 certification by UNBS. For a start, we ensure that we sift substandard products by maintaining a roll of credible suppliers who are committed to meeting quality standards. We also insist on quality certifications for all products whether sourced locally or internationally. At all times, we also maintain a clear traceability path for all products, particularly food products. As a regional retailer, we have been actively seeking global certifications for


UGANDA RETAIL OUTLOOK

Insight Consumer Magazine Launch all our operations in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. As a regional player, we are proud of the fact that we are one of the few leading corporates that have regional ISO certifications. There have been allegations that majority of the products that you deal in, right from agricultural, are imported from Kenya, a move that would otherwise jeopardise many Ugandan farmers’ prospects who had hoped to reap from your opening shop here. What is your opinion? These allegations are unfounded. We have been providing a market for Ugandan agricultural products and hardly import any produce from Kenya. Indeed, attempts to import fresh produce from any other country would be a logistical nightmare and not cost effective for us. For this reason, all fruits and vegetables save for imported apples, grapes and oranges are grown in Uganda. All imported products are also readily indicated on the label such as Imported Kiwi fruits. Any other thing that you would like customers to know about your business operations? We are proud to be associated with progressive public institutions such as UNBS. UNBS has been one of our key operational partners. We enjoy a mutually beneficial working relationship that has enabled us to jointly consult and run joint programmes. By virtue of our core mission as a retailer, we are essentially UNBS watchdog partner. This means we must be at the forefront in ensuring that we only stock products that have been certified by UNBS. On this score, we also assist local and international suppliers to meet UNBS standards and provide them with pertinent information as relates to Quality standards in Uganda. Indeed, a supplier who does not meet UNBS standards has no place seeking to sell anything through Nakumatt Uganda. This is an undertaking that we strictly adhere to as part our commitment to maintain the partnership relationship we enjoy with UNBS. It’s also instructive to note that Nakumatt Holdings is a globally acclaimed retailer. In 2009, the authoritative retail sector research house Planet Retail adjudged Nakumatt as the 2nd Most Innovative Retailer in the World. In recognition of Nakumatt’s commitment to regional integration, we’ve also been awarded the East Africa Community’s East Africa Investor of year 2011 award.
