Recently, Goodyear financially has had a net operating loss in the past three years due to the recession but in the first quarter of this year; Goodyear has a profitable sale. The sale was four times higher than what Wall Street estimate for its home market (North America). Globally, sales also are up about 22% which contribute to a $5.40 billion in net sale for the first quarter of this year. Goodyear has a good current ratio, quick ratio, receivable turnover, Inventory turnover, and asset turnover. The long-term debt to equity was high due to large debt accumulated by the new plant in Dalian, China. In addition, rising fuel price, natural rubber prices, supply, and significant increase in other key commodities are also potential concerns.
In 1959, Goodyear expanded to the Asian Market when the company built a new plant in Delhi, India. As a multi-national corporation, Goodyear divided the global market into five regions: North America, Europe, Middle East/Africa, Latin America, and Asia Pacific. The Asia Pacific market consists of China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. This research paper will focus on the Asia Pacific market and whether Vietnam would be a good market for Goodyear to expand into.
