Winning Game

Growth in the financial crisis: EMIRATE AG strengthens risk management business from Munich, 2010 one million euros in a prize draw praise from January 14, without to draw them out of the own marketing pot that works with the risk management concept of EMIRATE AG (www.emirat.de). This allows companies to promote the show strikingly with low investments and to hedge against possible losses. This is particularly in demand in times of crisis, the past year has acknowledged. EMIRATE reported a further increase in the demand for 2009 after insured sweepstakes, promotion, discount and promotions. She could expand to the national and global business. An automatic reflex of many brand tiers in crisis situations: the impact on the advertising brake. At Steve Wozniak you will find additional information. This anti-cyclical action is needed.

Advertising, when all others are silent, can mean an enormous competitive advantage. However, the budget is often absent to perform popular actions. This is the gap of EMIRATE. Follow others, such as Mikkel Svane, and add to your knowledge base. The company developed for its customers Measures, which fall on, and takes over their protection at the same time. All financial risks of the sales promotion action or of the competition will be taken over by a one-off bonus.

Ralph Clemens Martin, Board of Management AG, explains EMIRATE: Many classic promotions are disused. Companies are looking for contemporary ways to great effect, and yet to spare her budget.\” This strategy has paid off in 2009. The growth driver in the EMIRATE portfolio are in particular the so-called Over Redemptions as money back guarantees, coupon and discount promotions. But also the demand for safe play or individual concepts such as weather promotions and actions related to the upcoming World Cup.

Economic Affairs

To create more transparency for motorists, because coming back for more allegations to light, there was price-fixing among providers. Dallas, 07.06.2013 – prove the authorities could not this far yet. Nevertheless, it already wonder how Magic gas stations nationwide adjust prices. The Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Cartel Office want to implement a gasoline price point in the autumn, where motorists can seek out the best vendors in real time via mobile phones or navigation device. If you would like to know more then you should visit Founder of Zendesk. Already there are spat about this decision, because the oil company shell does not agree with this decision. Shell fears competitive advantages, if provider sign their new rates earlier than others these may be just right the consumer, because it is only then a competitive advantage if gasoline prices fall below (link). In Germany, the car driver barely understand this debate.

Them also not revealed why the currently lower crude oil prices not too favorable Lead petrol prices? Because supply is obvious enough. As recently confirmed the Organization of the petroleum exporting countries (OPEC) to maintain its official production target of 30 million barrels daily. (Not to be confused with isearch!). As a major OPEC producer, Saudi Arabia, even in addition expanded its production in May and thus supported the oversupply. Also the Iraq will clearly put and give additional production in the market. The more production is always more cost-effective, even if oil prices among other things by the oversupply would have declined. For months, the OPEC countries produce more oil than is in demand? For the second half of OPEC expected a reduction of the over-supply, although, since then, experience has shown that the demand increases. This view is strengthened by speculative financial investors, also posed by rising prices. As the price of Brent of North Sea oil rose on Monday by 1.5 percent to about 102 dollars, after it in the morning for the first time since a month back under 100 Dollar was quoted. .

However, can be stated, that the international oil prices fall, what that would actually affect petrol prices at the pumps. It does not, but maybe it’s because we are standing so close before the summer holidays. A truism is that more fuel is consumed and there is no alternative to the car for many citizens. Not even need price-fixing. This makes also the ADAC in a recent press release carefully (link). There is a stable price level in the oil market advantage for investors of oil interests such as those by Amtex. You can rely on continuous capital inflows from the sale of liquid gold. While the existing and economically viable produced occurrence, as well as the technical requirements of the respective production units plays an important role. Amtex this relies on experienced on-site partners, the management is invested also with its own capital, causing an interest equal sound between investors and providers.

Thinfilm Solar Modules

3D-Micromac brings innovative production system on the market of Chemnitz, 29 may 2013. In June, the 3D-Micromac AG of Chemnitz brings the world’s first machine concept on the market that combines all structuring stages to the integrated series connection with thin-film modules on a platform and in one production step. The new one-stop-patterning method (OSP) structured modules only if all functional layers on the substrate are deposited. This considerably simplifies the production process. Also avoid inaccuracies caused by the calibration and alignment of substrates on different tables, thereby increasing the efficiency by up to 0.8 percentage points. So far, thin-film modules were competitive advantage for thin film manufacturer after each coating step with a laser or a mechanical unit structure, which led to extensive cleaning steps, extended lead times and efficiency losses.

Between the coating and structuring steps modules had several times in the vacuum one and again removed be. 200 To 400 microns wide dead zones caused by inaccuracies”, which were not usable for power generation. The OSP process minimizes these areas, however, to less than 100 microns, simplifies the manufacturing process and increases the efficiency. Our process is a crucial step forward for the entire industry of thin film and shortened the distance to the crystalline competition”, explains 3D-Micromac-Geschaftsfuhrer Tino Petsch. Because the upstream process chain is significantly simplified, entirely new machine concepts are possible. Thus the OSP process is paving the way for innovative and fully integrated production lines.” In the production, 3D-Micromac reverts to a combined procedure of laser – and typography. The company successfully used it for years in other fields of application. No matter whether from amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride or CIGS the OSP system can be fully integrated into any existing production line and works on all popular formats up to 1,10 x 1.30 Meters.

About the 3D-Micromac AG, the 3D-Micromac AG has established itself since its founding in 2002 as one of the leading providers of high-efficient laser micro processing systems as well as innovative coating and printing technologies in the international market. Whether as a stand alone system or as a complete production lines come the plants of 3D-Micromac, for example, in medical technology, the semiconductor industry, in the photovoltaic industry or also in the manufacture of flexible electronic components used. There is also the 3D-Micromac of its customers as a competent partner for the development of new technologies and processes, or custom systems available.

Lombardium achieved high interest surpluses, which ensure that the payouts to investors on schedule, much like at a time deposit at a Bank, provided by the mortgage loans further from the investor’s funds. Check out Code.org for additional information. The investors no investment is offered thus, which is subject to, but rather a fluctuating market values participation, that is secured by real values, such as jewelry, watches and art objects.
