Admin Notes:

1. Congratulations to Allure Inc.(Firm 52) for successfully opening their subsidiary Firm 26 in Quarter 3, 2019.

 


ECONOMIC NEWS:

The Mississippi earthquake claimed the lives of 42620 people.  Damage estimates are over a trillion dollars and growing.  Within twenty four hours of the disaster, a special declaration by the President of the United States waived any entry or import restrictions across the Canadian/United States border.  Thousands of Canadians, poured into the heartland of America driving huge trucks with relief supplies, electric company utility trucks, backhoes, generators and excavation equipment.  Twenty four helicopters with search and rescue dogs and medical teams flew into the Ohio river valley.  The Canadians joined caravans of aid moving southward from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.  Similar caravans were moving north out of Texas, Florida, Georgia and eastern states.  The Office of Homeland Security became the director for a vast army of rescue and relief aid.  Western states were sending relief teams to California and Oregon.

 

The equity markets recovered within weeks as the scale and cost of the disaster became known. 

 

Christmas was a very sad affair and a most joyous occasion as people in the United States shared their grief and acclaimed their love and appreciation for all the support provided.


INDUSTRY:

As anticipated, scent demand collapsed in the NAFTA markets.  Details are not yet available but it appears sales were off by 30% … perhaps lower in some areas not yet reporting.

 

Firms selling into the NAFTA market had to respond immediately under crisis management conditions.  Alerted in late Q3 to the earthquake, they had to shift available products to the most advantaged markets.  This was not too difficult.  However, marketing variables all had to be adjusted in a totally new competitive environment.  Overall, management held their own in such a whirlwind of unknown factors.  Some prospered, others over-reacted.  Some failed to react.  All in all, Q4 profits look good as does the future.

 

Emergency response agencies and victims of the earthquake sent huge thanks and appreciation to the firms that donated time, energy and money to the clean-up and rebuilding efforts underway. Special thanks to Firms 35 and 22 for their generous support. The numerous families, schools, libraries and many, many other people who benefited from the generosity of these amazing firms sent their heart-felt thanks, pictures and letters of appreciation to the firms themselves and social media platforms.
