Memo To: Mr. V. Mincato From: Alexandra Parker Date: 1/19/12 Re: Eni SpA Analysis Report EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: In order to ensure a thorough report, five different critical analyses methods have been conducted; SWOT, PEST, GE Matrix, Financial, and VRIO analysis. With the analyses implications in mind, it has been determined that Eni SpA must merge with another major within the industry. PROBLEM: Eni SpA’s current strategy is to further expand the company’s gas activities. The problem keeping them from doing so is their resistance to merge with another major within the energy service industry. existing problem is its overall size within the energy service industry. ANALYSIS: 1. SWOT: (Figure #) Strengths Eni SpA’s strengths of running vertically integrated operations and its strong presence in Italy differentiate it from “supermajor” players within the energy service industry. The company’s status within Italy has provided it the opportunity to acquire more companies in additional markets within Europe, thus further internationalizing its internal culture. Weaknesses A weakness of Eni SpA is its small size relative to competitors within all service industries it is a part of. Refusing to become a “supermajor” within the industry impedes Eni SpA from attaining stronger bargaining power in their upstream operations, risk spreading which comes with a larger portfolio, a larger scope of learning, innovation and the disclosure of new best practices. Opportunities There are tremendous growth opportunities for Eni SpA both internally and externally. With technological innovations, Eni SpA owned Saipem and Snamprogetti can continue to develop oilfield services and engineering operations to continue their high status. Externally, acquiring more operation companies thus diversifying Eni SpA’s reserve locations to new regions of the world will further internationalize the company culture and give them a better positioning amongst industry “supermajors.” Threats
