Once upon a time McDonald’s was just a burger – but today it is a comprehensive breakfast table, a global life style, locally adapted menus – and an exceptional business.
McDonald’s is the world’s largest restaurant chain with over 34,000 restaurants in around 120 countries. The product range is well known to most people and is becoming familiar to more every day. McDonald’s serves more than a billion people a year – and the golden M is one of the world’s strongest brands today.
Burger King or McDonald’s? This was once an almost classic dilemma.

It’s all about having the right customers and pricing them right.
Topdanmark attaches crucial importance to a correct pricing of insurance risks. The strategy has partly been dividing customers after risk profile, partly a strong reluctance against unfounded lowering of the prices on insurances in the hunt for new customers. This strategy has resulted in Topdanmark being in a strong position with a very attractive customer portfolio, which is priced correctly.
Topdanmark’s successful strategy has also been reflected in the competitive situation in the well-consolidat
Common sense, engagement and vision are old fashioned banking virtues. Ringkjøbing Landbobank have kept them – and gained great respect with a gilt-edged business.
Throughout 2013 the Danish banks have been plagued by the weak development in just about all of society’s activities, so the banks have extensively concentrated on reducing their cost bases. There has only been a modest demand on loans and the low interest level has pressurized the banking sector’s earnings. Therefore, there has been hectic activity in the banking sector with regards to automation,
In 2013, the Chinese kitchen was struck with chicken distress. But the Chinese continue to love the colonel and his fast food.
YUM! Brands opened its first Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in China in 1987 and with its more than 4,500 restaurants KFC is the leading fast food chain in China today. In 2013, YUM! opened more than 700 new restaurants in the country, and it is expected to open another 700 restaurants in China annually in the coming years.
When Colonel Saunders founded Kentucky Fried Chicken – better known as KFC – in 1964, he could hardly have imagined
Good ideas and drive turned a small group of Danish carriers into a global haulage contracting company with an annual revenue of DKK 500 billion.
DSV is founded on ideas of collaboration and economies of scale. Those were ideas that Leif Tullberg in 1976 used to convince ten other haulage contractors that this was the way to go. Since then De Samvirkende Vognmænd – now simply DSV – has grown significantly, both organically and through targeted acquisitions.
Today DSV is a global company and among the largest providers in Europe. The group is a global
Copenhagen Airports makes money on everything that moves. Even things that do not move – such as sleeping hotel guests or parked cars – create earnings. And this is quite profitable.
In spite of worries and low economic growth in Denmark, Copenhagen Airports achieved a decent increase in passengers in 2013. Air traffic out of Copenhagen grew by almost 3 percent to 24.1 million passengers, so things have been lively here – and that is what it is all about. One could say, Copenhagen Airports earn money every time somebody arrives or leaves; by plane, car or as passengers,
They ease burdens for people all over the world. They run the company tightly and profitably. So it feels good to be a co-owner of Coloplast.
Coloplast is a global market leader in medical devices for ostomy and continence. Furthermore the company occupies a significant market position in the skin and wound care segment. Since its initial public offering in 1983, the company has experienced significant growth and has created considerable value for its shareholders. 2013 was no exception. Value creation in Coloplast took a quantum leap in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 – and
A paradise for man’s best friends – and for PetSmart’s investors.
PetSmart was founded in 1986 in Phoenix, Arizona, and the chain’s first two stores were opened in 1987. Since then, the company has expanded radically and consists of more than 1,300 stores and nearly 200 PetsHotels today. At first the chain was first and foremost a supermarket for Americans with pets, but today the concept is more comprehensive and includes –apart from the stores – the earlier mentioned hotels for animals as well as a cooperation with the veterinarian hospitals Banfield, which are
They are working non-stop to make life easier for patients everywhere. Novo Nordisk are rewarded for this by an increasing number of diabetics.
Novo Nordisk looks back at 2013 as an extremely challenging year. The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s rejection of Novo Nordisk’s new long-acting insulin Tresiba in February was a significant setback to the company’s ambitions concerning increased market shares in the important American market.
But even in a year, that Novo Nordisk looks back on with disappointment, it is comforting and pleasing that sales
The entire world is on its way to give up on cash and pay by card. This has made the money pour into MasterCard.
Not more than a few years ago, cash and cheque were the most widespread payment methods in Denmark, but with the launch of electronic payment in Denmark in 1983 a trend began in which more and more transactions were carried out electronically. The same has happened in the rest of the world, but not to the same extent. Globally, as much as 55 percent of all payments are still carried out using cash or cheques, and with retailers the figure is as high as 85 percent.
Sa Sa is a chain of Asian beauty. And for the shareholders, the growing cosmetics chain is a great investment.
Sa Sa markets, distributes and sells more than 400 different brands of cosmetics. About 40 percent of the sales are from the company’s exclusive rights to sell and market its own and more than 100 international brands in Hong Kong. This happens from more than 270 locations, of which around 260 are own stores. The stores’ concept is based on strong brands within cosmetics, skin- and hair products and a strategy of being able to provide them at a reasonable cost.
The flagship in McGraw-Hill Financial is an American dream and a brilliant business – it is Standard & Poor’s.
In 1849, Henry Poor became the editor of the magazine The American Railroad Journal, which described the American railroad industry with relevant information for investors. This happened in a time when trading in securities – bonds as well as shares – grew and at the same time started to spread between the states. Previously this type of investment was mostly done within one’s own state, and therefore access to information was easier. But when
