Recently a new business arrangement was struck between Eucatex and Duratex. (see:”FlávioMaluf explains business between Eucatex and Duratex involving factory in Botucatu” — BOCTUC@TU ONLINE — by: HaraldoAmarai, February 01, 2018 http://www.botucatuonline.com/2018/02/01/flavio-maluf-explica-negocio-entre-eucatex-e-duratex-envolvendo-fabrica-em-botucatu/ ). Duratex is a publically traded Brazilian firm founded in 1961. The company specializes in the production of reconstituted wooden boards, sanitary vitreous chinaware and metal fittings.
Flávio Maluf sees this business venture as highly strategic and of benefit to Eucatex and the company’s employees. In a memo written to the employees of Eucatex, Mr. Maluf explains that Eucatex has acquired the wood fiber unit of Duratex which is located in the city of Botucatu, Brazil. He points out that the acquisition will result in an increase in production capacity for Eucatex. Fiber sheet production is forecast to increase by 70% and paper printing by 40%. Furthermore, the addition of this unit from Duratex will allow Eucatex to move into markets they are not currently serving and to strengthen their presence in Brazil and abroad.
This business arrangement is designed to benefit both sides. As part of the agreement, a farm in Capão Bonito will be given to Duratex. This will be utilized by Duratex for raw production to add to the production from their facility in the city of Itapetinga. The value of the production unit in Botucatu has been appraised at $60 million Brazilian Real (approximately $16.6 million U.S. Dollars). Currently, the operation in Botucantu employs 280 people. The production of thin sheets of wood from this unit is estimated at 200 thousand square meters.
A market leader in Brazil, poised for growth worldwide, Eucatex celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2011. Read: https://www.mundodomarketing.com.br/noticias-corporativas/conteudo/108970/conheca-com-flavio-maluf-algumas-dicas-para-administrar-uma-empresa-familiar
In February 2018, Shervin Pishevar predicted that the market was going to drop an aggregate 6.000 points. This was after the market had experienced a dramatic drop. He gave 50 reasons why he feels that this drop will occur. The overall message that he sent out to the Twitter world is that things relating to the US economy will get worse before they are able to get better.
This Twitter storm lasted 21 hours. This may have come as a surprise to many considering that Shervin Pishevar hasn’t used his Twitter account to share any ideas on leadership, economics, or venture capitalism for over two months. The last time he posted anything was in December 2017 when he announced that he would be resigning from Sherpa Capital, a venture capital fund that he had co-founded and served as a managing director with. This company is known for investing in Uber, Munchery, and Airbnb.
One of the points that Shervin Pishevar mentioned was that there has been a loss in exclusivity in Silicon Valley. He says that it is now an idea that’s gone viral and is borderless. This means that immigrant talent that once needed to come to the United States no longer needs to do so. He warns that innovation that is frictionless is flourishing in other countries. One example he gave was of a team in China that was able to build a train station in just nine hours. His basic point was that the American economy isn’t alone.
Shervin Pishevar predicts that companies that have been built on monopoly frameworks are going to fall. His gloomiest predictions involved Google, Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon, and Apple. He calls them monopolies and says that they should fall because that is how evolution works. He warned about their ability to buy out small startup companies, which will make the entire system fail. He feels like everyone is turning a blind eye to the power that these giant companies hold.
Not all of Shervin Pishevar’s predictions were dark and gloomy. He predicted that there are a few companies that inspire good work and will continue to rise. He specifically mentioned Virgin Hyperloop One and SpaceX.
There are many companies out there in the alternative health and wellness business that purport to understand exactly what it takes to keep your aging in check while turning back the dial on your years. The issue is that too many of these companies, while honest and authentic in their approach, don’t actually grasp that the human body is the only technology that we can rely on to effectively pull this off. All the pills, lasers and yoga in the world can only do so much.
