UAV Market Assessment

A major defense contractor was interested in pursuing an upcoming bid for a new UAV platform. As part of its effort to submit a highly competitive proposal, the defense contractor needed a comprehensive, independent assessment of the market for UAVs, with a clear understanding of past procurements and evolving platform capabilities.

Given its client's requirements, Teal conducted a thorough review of past DOD UAV procurement programs, including: platform specifications, competitive environment, key award factors, teaming arrangements, cost structure and winning bidder. The second phase of the study applied these findings against the upcoming procurement and made tactical recommendations that were incorporated into the client's bid submission. A full report, including conclusions and recommendations, was provided to the client.

Due Diligence Support

A private equity firm interested in making an acquisition of a European subsystems manufacturer needed support in evaluating the target company's current competitive position and its growth prospects.

Teal Group provided a comprehensive report of its assessment of the target firm's market prospects program by program, its technology, and its overall strategic direction. It provided a revenue forecast for the company's major programs and analyzed pricing pressures. The report examined the target company's technological strengths and weaknesses and the defensibility of the strengths. It examined potential problems stemming from the split of the business from its parent company. The report was used as a basis for the acquisition of the business.

New Business Jet Assessment

A commercial aircraft manufacturer needed an independent evaluation of the market potential for a new business jet.

Teal was asked to conduct an investigation and analysis of the business jet market, currently available aircraft, key performance criteria and customer requirements over the next twenty years. All factors associated with launching a new business aircraft were to be assessed. This included desired technical features of the new business jet, the potential competitive landscape, a market demand forecast, and an assessment of the necessary capabilities for an OEM to make the plane a success. A detailed report with forecasts was delivered to the client.
